Rough price for a new roof?

Post

Back to the top
I'm not at that stage yet but the car definitely needs one. It's got a hole in the actual roof and it's let water in so I think the inner section might need changing too. The headlining wasn't changed when the roof went on so now I'm looking at a complete roof!!

What is a rough estimate to expect to pay so I can prepare myself. Any recommendations for the northwest (Liverpool/warrington) area that people have used before?

Thanks

Edit. Mohair black roof is what I'm looking to put in it

What type of roof do you have, Vinyl or mohair and the colour can make a difference in price.

You need to really carefully check the rear window frame for rust, if you run your finger along the bottom and there's bubbles or rust you may be lucky and it can be saved/repaired as replacement are 300 ish for a metal frame which is silly money, I've always checked and repainted my window frame each time I've replaced the roof so it should last…. You might need to factor that into the cost as well.

I'm sure Chorlte will be along soon with advice etc as he's the go to roof guy on here. :thumbs:
