I often get asked how much it costs to repair or fix a flat roof. I don’t usually do a quote over the phone because what happens is that if I do a quote without seeing the roof, then someone has in their mind that’s the price. And it isn’t.
The thing is that all flat roof repairs or replacements are different. It’s a matter of size and also what materials you want but also how easy or hard it is to do the job. If the roof is a tricky shape and in a terrible access point then that’s going to be really hard to do – so it’s going to cost more.
So what I tend to do is I usually give a range of a price. For example, I may say £600 to £450, for a small job. That way, the homeowner has a rough idea. But then I go and take a look and give a firm price when I have factored everything in.
As I pay for my van, disposing of waste, insurance, clothing, fuel, equipment, materials, tax, etc believe you me, I am not the richest man in the world.
But if you want a good honest tradesman, who has a good attitude, great recommendations and will be reliable and good value, as opposed to cheap, then please hire me.
I do all my own work, I don’t subcontract and my kids will be grateful for your support…
