Clay roof tiles Prices, how much do the traditional roof tiles cost?


Clay roof tiles are still the classic and for many newly built houses still the preferred material for roofing. The prices can be very different here.

Unit prices do not usually say much

Unit prices for roof tiles are not a very good basis for comparison: the area consumption, ie the number of roof tiles required per square meter, can vary greatly depending on the tile model and the type of coverage.

As a basis for comparison, therefore, only square meter prices, based on a specific roof, are suitable. Even different roof pitches can result in different amounts consumed.

In the end, the very cheap models often turn out to be the most expensive - for example the classic beaver tail, which is often available for only 0.50 EUR apiece. In terms of area, however, the Frankfurter Pfanne is often the cheapest.

What matters in price

  • on the type of coverage: whether single, double or canopy makes a significant difference in the cost
  • the given roof pitch
  • on the type of tile: the classic beaver tail in double coverage is usually the most expensive variant
  • Shape and surface design of a tile also have a significant impact on prices
  • The name of the manufacturer also plays a not inconsiderable role in the price

Alternatives at traders on the Internet

  • braas.de: Braas has a very large assortment of different clay roof tiles.
  • ceraton.de: Ceraton is a well-known German manufacturer, the range of clay tiles here is extremely diverse.
  • wienerberger.de: The proven brick manufacturer has an extensive range of clay roof tiles in all variants.

Save costs - that makes sense:

Compare clay roof tiles priced with the optically barely distinguishable concrete roof tiles, which can often cost half. In terms of cost, this is certainly worth considering because of the very similar properties and durability.

Tips & Tricks

Make sure that the load-bearing capacity for concrete roof tiles is not sufficient for every roof - for some roofs they are too heavy. Then Eternit is still a possible alternative.
