The cost of Building materials are fast changing, in keeping you updated, we have come up with the current roofing sheet prices in Nigeria to help you make informed monetary decisions regarding your construction works as it has to do with the choice between different types of roof covering materials available in the markets today.
As a major cost component, the use of roofing sheets have transited from the old fashioned Speargrass or Palm raffia that we used to know to modernized sheet types like Aluminium roofs, Stone coated roofs, Sumo roofs, Negerite Crete tiles / slate roofs, Corrugated Zinc roofs, and Toprite roofs etc.
To understand which is best for your construction purpose, you may need to consult an Architect, Engineer or any Builder, Quantity Surveyor who will recommend a suitable one for you. But in all, the choice to be made borders on cost per sheet along with other needs of your roof like aesthetics, durability, energy efficiency, Water & Soundproof qualities, ease of maintenance, weight of the material, longevity, intended Slope or Pitch of your Rafter among other deciding factors that vary from one region to another.
There are various roof designs that affect the total cost of each roof style. Residential houses like homes, hotels and hostels are usually designed to depict its function from the roof by a mere look at it. So also properties built for commercial purposes like Banks, Factories, Public offices, Restaurants etc. In all, a roof with steep pitched truss usually takes more roofing sheets than roof trusses on low slopes. Meanwhile, a complicated / complex roof plan will result in usage of more roofing sheets compared to what is obtainable in a simple roof plan and of course the more the area to be covered with sheets, the more the client incurs cost. These factors and some others seriously affect the total cost of roofing and the affordability of a particular style in Nigeria.

How to Calculate the quantity of roofing sheets
Getting a competitive price from traders or vendors online these days is hard to come by without BetaPrices pricing guides like this one. This is because our aim is to equip our website visitors with cost information that results in giving value for their hard-earned money without compromising quality.
From the simple Roof plan above, you can see the different components of a typical roof like the King post, Structs, Rafter, Tie beam, Purlin, Eaves overhang, Ridge etc.
To calculate the quantity of Roofing Sheets, we need to know the numerical values of at least two sides of the traingle in the diagram (Side A, B & C).
Side A is the hypotenuse which can be gotten with known slopes.
Side B is the Adjacent: half of the width of the building which is readily available.
Side C is the Opposite: which approximately represents the length of the roof height/King post (if any).
From our sketch, take the height of the King post to be 1,200 mm, total length of block wall to be 6,500 mm and the width of the block wall to be 3,600 mm.
To get the total sloped length, we divide 3,600 by 2 to get 1,800 then add one side of the Eave Overhang to the triangle to arrive at 2,400 mm.
A = X
B = 2.4 m
C = 1.2 m
Using Pythagorean Theorem to find the true length of A, that is A^2 = B^2 + C^2, we got X to be 2.68 meters.
Now, to get the area of just half of the simple roof style, we add the two sides of the Eave to the TOTAL LENGTH of the end-to-end block wall to arrive at 7,700mm. We also do the same thing for the WIDTH to get 4,800 mm.
Therefore, the quantity of Roofing sheets needed for this project is 7.7 x 4.8 = 36.96 m2, for the both sides, it becomes 36.96×2 which is 73.92 m2.
