How Much Does Zinc Roof Cost?

When it comes to superior roofing materials, there are not many types that match the longevity, flexibility and resiliency of zinc. And that’s exactly what makes zinc roofs cost-effective.

FAQs | Installation Process | Advantages | Colours

Cheaper than aluminium or copper roofs, zinc can last much longer (hundreds of years), even in the most extreme of environments.

On top of all its benefits, zinc roofs offer homeowners the kind of value that is unmatched by all other roofing materials as it can save you money on costly roofing repairs or reroofing every decade or so.

Stronger, more durable and more cost-effective

Currently, the prices for zinc roofs are very competitive. The higher end of quality suppliers, manufacturers and roofers can charge up to £70 per square metre.

Homeowners should be advised that when it comes to longevity and fuss-free roofs that it’s worth considering the more expensive materials because of their higher and better qualities.

In comparison, asphalt is the cheapest of all roofing materials on the market and is often the first choice for homeowners with budgetary constraints.

However, roofing materials like this in the run often cost the homeowner more money through multiple repairs.

Example of fees:

  • Labour costs: from £90
  • Material costs: from £60
  • Cost per m2: from £150

However, with any new roof construction or installation, there are various fees to be aware of which will affect the final cost.

Other items for a typical zinc roof involve:

  • Plasterboard ceiling
  • Plywood
  • Timber joists, wall plates and supporting timbers
  • Slab insulation
  • Tyvek breather membrane
  • Vapour barrier
  • Timmer battens
  • Standing seams
  • Gutters
  • Downpipes
  • Flashings
