Average Cost/Price to Replace or Repair a Bargeboard

Thank you for visiting Quotation Check – The United Kingdom’s most popular guide to construction and home maintenance quotations. This page is all about replacement roofline bargeboard costs. You can find our full price list here. This page was last updated on .

Bargeboards are located on a gable/apex and are usually made from timber or Upvc plastic. They hide the otherwise exposed roof rafters.

This part of the roof is very exposed to the elements and rainwater will eventually rot timber bargeboards, this usually occurs at the lower corners of the gable/apex.

How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Bargeboard?

The average cost to replace a bargeboard is £600.00 but the price you pay will be determined by the following factors:

  • Your location – London being the most expensive area
  • If there are any unusual access difficulties
  • If you need the cement replaced or if the existing bargeboard can be removed without disturbing the cemented tiles
  • Whether you want Upvc or timber. (note: brown Upvc boards cost more than twice that of white Upvc boards)

The box below is a guide price for replacement Upvc bargeboards and cement work, including a reasonable scaffold fee.

How Difficult is to Replace a Bargeboard?

In most cases, a scaffold tower should be erected up to the desired work height. The tiles which are cemented in place may need to be removed. The existing bargeboard can then be removed with a crowbar/prybar. Assuming the rafters are in good condition, a new bargeboard can then be fitted (either Upvc plastic or timber). The roof tiles are then cemented back in place.

How Long Will the Work Take?

It will take two workers around a day to replace the bargeboard on a single gable, this includes putting up some scaffold and the cement work, it won’t take nearly so long if the cemented tiles are not disturbed. It would also make sense to replace the soffit boards on the gable at the same time as the bargeboard work, after all you are paying for the scaffold so you might as well pay a little extra and get it all done in one go!

Cost/Price to Repair and Paint Existing Timber Bargeboard

If you are looking to save a few pennies or your existing bargeboard is in a good condition, then you could have it repaired and painted. This work is often done from ladders rather than scaffold so there is a cost saving to be made.

Here is a typical works schedule for repairing an existing timber bargeboard:

  • Erect ladders to work height
  • Rub down timber bargeboards to remove loose paint
  • Burn off paint as required
  • Cut out any rotten timber (usually to lower corners of apex)
  • Supply new timber for small repair/use filler
  • Apply undercoat to any bare wood
  • Apply one undercoat
  • Apply one gloss coat

If your contractor uses oil based paints then he/she will need to allow for extra drying time between each coat. That means coming back on a second day.

The advantages of repairing/painting the existing bargeboards are that scaffold might not be needed and the cemented tiles will not be disturbed.

    I need bargeboard replacement, repointing 2 chimney stacks, repair of slates in valley, and small section of gutter and downpipe replacement. I also need itemised quotes for these jobs. Your form does not allow me to cover more than one task. It also doesn’t allow me to say that I have already arranged for scaffolding as I will be painting the house. What do I do?
