The cost of re-roofing a property will vary depending on a number of factors including:

  • the professional roofer you hire
  • the size of your roof 
  • the quality of the materials you will use
  • whether or not you are altering the style of your current roof.

A roof is one of the most important components of a house and maintenance becomes absolutely necessary in order to protect them and make our home feel more secure.  As roof structures tend to wear out faster, re-roofing or roof restoration is always necessary, in order to protect the property.

Choosing the right roofer: 

  • Choose someone with lots of specific experience.
  • Get a detailed quote from each tradesman you’re considering. 
  • Check out the reviews from previous customers 
  • Find out whether a tradesman uses safety equipment properly. 
  • Never pay in full upfront! 

Buying a new roof system is an important investment. Before you spend your money, spend time learning how to evaluate roofing contractors. You should insist on working with a professional roofing contractor. Island Imperial Roofing can assist you in getting the kind of results you expect—a quality roof system at a fair price. 


A new roof will be required to:

  • resist weather
  • resist the spread of fire from one property to another
  • be able to support loads (weights)
  • provide resistance to heat loss (insulation)
  • be ventilated to protect from condensation (in most cases)
  • have adequate drainage


The materials used to cover the roof should comply with Codes of Standards BS5534 and be durable and capable of resisting the elements of the weather.

Deteriorating Roof Tiles

Roof tiles have a long history and a good track record. Manufacturers typically guarantee the tiles for 30 years and suggest that 60 years is a reasonable service life.   Our roofs face the worst of the elements: spring showers, winter blizzards and searing summer temperatures all take their toll.  Over the years the fixings deteriorate and there is nothing holding the slate securely.
