Let’s look how much you should pay a roofer for a concrete tile roof. For a Concrete Tile roof per square (or per 100 square feet) costs $350 to $450 for a “R and R” (to remove the tile and replace the existing tile underlayment and reuse same roof tiles). Reusing the same tile is a cost effective way to replace your roof. On average a tile “R and R” for a whole roof costs $7,000 to $15,000 Note: this is just an average on how much you should pay a roofer to do your tile roof.
However, some tile brands are brittle and all the tile need to be replaced which means you will have to pay your roofer more.
Cost to pay a roofer for new tile.
In the event that all of the tile need to be replaced on your roof the cost per square generally costs:
- Concrete: Generally costs $500 to $1000 per square
- Clay: Generally costs $800 to $1200 per square
These prices are a supposed to be used as a general guide only on how much you should pay a roofer. Each tile roof varies in size and complexity. For example, a roof with a larger square area is generally cheaper per square because you get “economies of scale”. Complexity plays a part in the cost of a new tile roof as well. A roof that is is considered complex has many valleys, different slopes, or angled ridge.
Another price factor is the roofing company you choose. This can make up to a 50% difference on how much you should pay a roofer. There are many unlicensed “companies” that have rock bottom prices. But should never be an option because they end up usually costing the customer more money when they have to hire a reputable company to fix their roof. The price range among the roofing companies can vary greatly. For example, our salesman have placed a bid on a job for $15,000.00 and another company had placed a bid for $30,000.00!
The last factor that affects concrete tile roof prices is the quality of material. This factor has the smallest margin on how much you should pay a roofer. Usually only affecting the price by a few hundreds to thousands on how much you should pay a roofer (depending on the size of the job) We strongly recommend the best materials to our customers since the ROI is greatly in their favor. Using “better” material makes the tile roof last up to 5 to 10 years longer and is worth the extra money!
