Sample Tile Roof Prices
Tile prices vary widely based on materials and their quality, and with a range of materials to choose from, tile can truly be a material for any budget. Here are a few sample tile prices, per square foot:
- Clay tiles: $7 to $10
- Deluxe clay: $10 to $30
- Concrete tiles: $4.50 to $9
- Deluxe concrete: $7 to $10
Cement and clay are classic styles. With more expensive slate, metal, and concrete fiber tiles, you're paying for advanced materials and the latest trends. Of course, these are ballpark figures, and the material costs you find in your area may vary.
Shipping and Labor Costs
The price of materials isn't the only thing you should consider when budgeting for a tile roof. If you're renovating an asphalt roof, the cost of removing and disposing of shingles ranges from $3 to $5 per square foot. Labor costs for installation depend on the weight and strength of the tile; a delicate material requires extra time and drives up the bottom line.
There are a few costs you might not even consider when first considering renovating your roof with tile. For heavier tiles, you might need to reinforce your roof supports to hold up the roof, which can cost $1,000 to $10,000 or more, depending on the size of your roof. Lastly, if you live far from where the tile is made, expect shipping costs to add anywhere from $600 to $1,000 to the price of your tile.
