We have often been asked what the cost difference is between the various types of roof coverings and their effect on the trusses as the supporting structure.
Below is a cost comparison that was done in August 2009. Although prices will have changed by now, it will give one a very good idea of the various roof covering types as a ratio. It must also be borne in mind that steel prices were their lowest in years in 2009, so the disparity between concrete and steel will be greater today, making concrete tile the cheapest option by far.
