Factors Affecting the Cost

These are common factors that can affect average quotes from contractors.

  • Is the fitting internal or external? Expect to pay roughly £70 less for an internal loft fitting compared to an external roof fitting.
  • Will an amplifier be needed? On rare occasions, an amplifier needs to be fitted to raise the signal to a satisfactory level. A contractor should be able to check the signals with a test aerial and out meter first.
  • Is there a bad line of sight between aerial and transmitter? For example, tall buildings or trees may affect the reception. This can affect the amount of work required.
  • Height of the building? Most aerials can be installed from a ladder. However, if a platform needs to be erected, this will add extra cost.
  • Location. Labour costs in the South and London are generally higher than the rest of the country and further north. A company may charge extra if your property falls outside of the zone they typically service.
