Replacement Roof in Coventry  


I am about to replace my existing asbestos  roof with a new Metrotile or Decra roof tile.

Has anyone in Coventry area recently had theirs  replaced ?

What sort of cost should I expect ? Any recommended companies would be helpful.


Hello Graham,

Firstly, may I say that having your existing roof replaced with a lightweight roofing system is probably one of the best investments that you can make in relation to your property.

I am starting to see more and more mortgage lenders picking up on existing corrugated asbestos roofs during surveys and they are not viewing them very favorably at all. In part, this is due to the fact that many are very near to the end of their lifespans. 

I would probably go so far as to say that in the not so distant future, it may become quite difficult to obtain a mortgage or to sell if the original asbestos roof has not been replaced. Therefore I would encourage anyone with an original asbestos roof to consider replacement.

You have mentioned two of the countries leading suppliers.

Decra is considered to be the market leader who pride themselves on producing a high quality, durable system. Decra is often the material of choice for many Local authorities and commercial enterprises and it does cost a little more than the Metrotile system.

The average or rough cost of a Decratile installation would be somewhere around £4-5k but there are many factors that can influence the overall cost, including scaffolding costs, existing roof removal and any ancillary products that may be required, such as replacement soffit boards etc if required.

The average or rough cost of a Metrotile roofing system is around £3-4k which can also vary for the same reasons as above.

I spoke to our friends at Decratile on Tuesday evening and I hope to receive further information very shortly regarding their approved installers in your area.

Our Friends at Metrotile have supplied me with the following list that should help in respect to their approved installers who cover Coventry.

RS Miller Roofing Ltd
01384 571144
Danescourt Roofing       
01902 791110
Dent & Partners              
01902 366 302

Obviously, it's always worth getting a few different quotes, as each installer works independently from the manufacturer/ supplier and their prices may vary.
I will update you as soon as I receive a reply from Decratile.
Best regards



Mark Newson, the Divisional sales manager from Decra has contacted me this morning, and kindly offered to contact a few local installers, in order to gain a better idea of costings due to the fact that the old asbestos roof would need to be removed.

It may take a couple of days for a reply but meanwhile, here are his contact details.
