The roof of your house forms not only a crucial part of its overall structure, as well as the way the house looks, but it also accounts for a large portion of the overall build costs you can expect.

New roof costs will obviously vary hugely depending on the size of your house, the type of roof covering you opt for and the complexity of the shape of roof you choose. Another driving factor in how much your new roof is likely to cost you is the type of trusses you select.
