Roof batten prices vary depending on what size batten you need and what type of batten you need. Opting for C24 battens are going to be more expensive than C16 as they’re a higher grade batten for external and commercial building use. Choosing the correct roof batten to support the load of your roof or structure is very important, but there’s room to save cost by comparing prices across different merchants. We’ve put together a comprehensive list of roof batten prices and roof board prices for you to compare. Don’t forget, buying in bulk is a great way to get a further discount!
