Roof leak repair costs are not easy to determine. If you have a cracked or missing tile, or a pinhole in your flashing, costs are going to be low. But if you need a full scale replacement of tiles, flashing or guttering you should expect the cost to rise significantly.

Repairs may need more than one person, scaffolding may be needed, and specialist tiles can all add to the cost. So make sure to get quotes from plenty of local roofers or builders. Then you might want to weigh up the repair costs against how much a new roof costs, before deciding whether you should repair or renew.
