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 the Aerial and the Transmitter?

For example, tall buildings or trees may affect the reception. This can affect the amount of work required.

How Tall is the Building?

Most aerials can be installed from a ladder. However, if a platform needs to be erected, this will add extra cost.


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.

Costs of Removing a TV Aerial

As time goes on and your TV aerial gets older, it may be worth getting it cleared away. This will ensure it doesn’t fall off the roof during bad weather and cause damage. Plus it improves the look of your house and can help save you money.

Expect to pay approximately £50 – £100 for a professional to remove it. However, this can vary depending on the type of aerial and how long the professional expects the job to take.

Can You Do It Yourself?

If you have the correct equipment, this is something that could be done. However, as you’ll likely have to go on the roof, you’ll need the right safety equipment.

Although you can do it yourself, we would recommend getting a professional in who has done this before. They’ll ensure that the setup is correct, that you get the best signal and most importantly, don’t put yourself at risk doing the TV installation.
