Guide to Roof Tile Prices – including Marley, Slate, Concrete and Clay Roof Tiles
Are you thinking of installing new roof tiles? You will need to decide on which tile will best suit your home and budget. The price of roof tiles UK will depend on the chosen material.
Slate Roof Tile Prices
Slate roof tiles are made from natural material that is both water and temperature change resistant making it ideal for roofing tiles. A good quality slate requires little maintenance and still last more than 100 years. The one downside to slate is its weight and the slate roof tile cost. For best results always hire a professional roofer for installation. Roof tiling costs are additional to the roof tiles cost.
Slate roof tiles from Wales and Spain are more expensive as the quality is higher. A less expensive option is a second generation tile made from different types of slate. The price of slate roof tiles also depends on the supplier.
The cost of slate roof tiles varies depending on the quality and size:
From AllSlates Ltd reclaimed Welsh slate tiles cost from £0.80 for a small 16 x 8 tile to £2.80 for a larger 24 x 14 tile before VAT

The price of concrete tiles depends on the supplier but an average price is as follows:
