Although not as expensive as a copper roof, clay tile roofs are rather expensive for most home owners, making it a hefty investment for installation. Depending upon the brand of tile and the place of manufacture, a home owner can expect to pay anywhere from $2.75 to $5.50 per square foot.
More Details:

Since clay tile roofing can be problematic to install because of their tendency to break under foot, homeowners can expect to see an additional $1.00 or more per square foot added to the tab because clay tile roofing installation takes expertise and is a very complicated process.

Unless a home was constructed with clay tile roofing in mind, due to the weight of clay tile roofing, additional supports will need to be added to help distribute the weight of the clay tiles once they are installed.
