Estimate the cost of the gable roof in advance

Most builders opt for a gable roof for their private house: this type of roof is easy to drain and relatively inexpensive. What are the current costs for a gable roof?

This is what the costs are made up of

  • The costs for the gable roof are mainly based on the size of the roof, i.e. the number of square meters of the roof area. The approximate mean value for the shell is 60 EUR per square meter.
  • Special constructions on the roof - such as a small roof terrace or a bay window - increase the costs for the gable roof not insignificantly. The construction work required for this is relatively complex.
  • Also, keep in mind that prices differ depending on the region. In certain regions, the wages of tradespeople are well above the average, which also increases the costs for the gable roof. A particularly storm-proof roof in the storm area is also more expensive.
  • The roof structure is not enough: a legally prescribed thermal insulation will cost you another 60 EUR per square meter of roof area. The roof covering is between 20 and 100 EUR per square meter, depending on the material and requirements.

Lower costs: build a gable roof yourself?

Those who take the entire construction project into their own hands with family and friends can save up to 40% of the costs. Very few builders, however, will be competent professionals themselves, who know all structural features and legal regulations!

Tips & Tricks Inquire about government subsidies before starting construction work. You can count on a low-interest loan from KfW, especially for thermal insulation. Submit your application ahead of time, because once the work has started, it is usually too late!
