That depends . That depends on a lot of stuff. How big is the roof? What quality shingle -- assuming it's shingles -- are you going to replace it with, 20-year, 30-year, …or even better? Are you going to lay the new shingles right over the old or are going to rip up the old? If you tear up the old, what is the condition of the roof under the existing shingles? Does a lot of wood need to be replaced or repaired? Are you doing the work yourself or are you hiring a contractor?
Need to know how big the building is, and in what part of which country.
It depends on the area and the quality of theproducts you have used.

Slate which is a type of stone is used for the roof tiles instead of shingles. It splits in thin sheets and is nailed to the roof the same as regular asphalt shingles.
Some people think it looks nice, and it doesn't corrode like metal. Plus, they're less fragile than normal roof tile, I'd imagine. Further to the above, slate displays a pro…perty known as cleavage. This is where a rock tends to break along a preferential plane of weakness formed due to the alignment of minerals in this case during low grade regional metamorphism. Because of this cleavage, slate is easily broken into thin sheets suitable for roof tiles.

The most common roofing slates is Welsh slate. This type of slate has been used for many years and is very common around many houses in the UK. Slate is very common due to how… well it reacts to weather conditions.
