Work undertaken: covered stone skews with lead to prevent water ingress.

Very approachable, reliable, friendly and helpful firm. Thanks to Maryann for consistently great and prompt communication with organising the work.
Also thanks to Colin and all his crew who were clear about the work undertaken, talked me through the process and addressed questions. Would recommend

Replacing cast iron gutters and painting facias and down pipes. Excellent job Colin and his team were very professional. I would use L & E Roffing Contractors again and would recommend his firm to anyone looking for a roofer.

L & E Roofing renewed a large flat roof, replaced my ridge, fitted vent tiles and installed uPVC trims on the front and rear roof verge.

When Colin from L & E first came to quote for the work I was very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. Initially he quoted me for installation of a new rubber membrane on the flat roof and then subsequently for the ridge and verge. The quote was very reasonable for the work getting done.
They first came to do the flat roof which was completed over a few days. I am very happy with the quality of workmanship and with the guys that did the work.
They then came back to carry out the work on the ridge and verge. They installed a new dry ridge system which involved removal of the whole old ridge and cement work. They then explained to me that a plastic "tree" was installed onto which the new ridge tiles are fastened. Unlike the old cement fixed ridge, this should be maintenance free.
When installing the verge trims they actually spent a day putting some up which then then removed the next day as they weren't 100% satisfied with how they were sitting. I was very impressed with this as it showed their professionalism and commitment to the quality of their work.
Due to this, the work ended up taking them longer than they expected and they actually did much more than originally quoted for. I was more than happy to pay for this extra work but Colin refused to take a penny more than he had quoted.
I would have L & E Roofing back in AA heartbeat if I need anything else done!

Contacted Colin and he came out to view the job and quote, quote received same day.

Accepted quote (excellent value for money) and arranged to complete the work in a few days which we very happy with as we had a leaking roof when it rained.

Word done and he did extra jobs which we did not ask him to quote for (cleared the gutters) so can not recommend Colin and his guys enough. We will 100% be using them again when required.

Could not have been more pleased with the outcome. The quote was very good and Colin and team arrived on time -all prepared - no excuses - nothing left to chance. The lads went beyond the job and when they knew I was hiring a special pipe cutter - they said - we will do that and they did. Have no fears - this company are experts and well mannered lads. Thanks guys.

I reached out to Colin to repair and seal the outside after we had removed the old mullions from the windows. Between first contact and job done, Colin and his team were fantastic, on time and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Front of house re harled. The men who came to do the job were excellent. They updated us on progress each night until job was finished. At the end they cleaned the whole front of the house, even the downpipes. We would not hesitate to recommend
L & E to anyone. The best building company we have ever used.

After high winds some ridge tiles had come loose and we needed all the ridge tiles checked as we were unhappy with previous work by another roofer.
Colin came promptly and discussed the job, advising that all the ridge needed removed, old mortar cleaned off and then reattached.
His quote seemed reasonable.
Work commenced a few weeks later (it had been stormy so he was very busy)
The team of roofers were very pleasant and helpful, informing us of what was happening at every stage.
Work was completed in a few days and the team made sure the garden was cleaned up
We are very happy with the work done and the attention to detail at all stages of the job

Really small job on a leaking drainpipe which lots of tradesman might not have thought was worth their while, but Colin came out no problem. Fixed it on the spot and then even used the hosepipe to check the repair had worked. Friendly, helpful and always responds to emails. Would highly recommend.

The roughcasting had come loose on my chimney due to the weather.
I convinced myself the whole house was needing re-done and was letting my mind run wild about the expense.
I phoned L and E at 3pm and he arrived first thing next morning to assess the job.
Mr Edwards quickly assured me that the job wasn't as big as I had first thought and talked me out of having the whole house done.
An estimate was sent within 2 hours and upon acceptance, Mr Edward's had his staff along making safe the loose roughcast as I have small kids running wild.
2 days later the scaffolding arrived followed by the squad from L and E who had the job done in a day and a half.
I'm delighted with the work done, overall cost and the time it took to complete.
Mr Edwards is a thoroughly decent bloke, polite and professional and I will have no hesitation to call upon his services again should the need arise.
Highly recommended.
Thanks again.

We were lucky! They got a postponement and so offered us the space. First experience of a rubber roof (EPDM), but Colin came and laid our fears to rest. Work was done when they said and completed to a high standard when they said.
No more leaks on our flat roof!! Thank you.

I contacted Colin when some harling became loose and started falling to the ground. He arrived the next day to look at it and immediately went up on to the roof and made it as safe as possible as a temporary measure. He showed us photos of the problems and also the broken roof tiles where the harling had smashed down onto them. He sent an estimate that evening, which we accepted and agreed he would start the work asap. Unfortunately the weather quickly caused even more damage and Colin and his men arrived within a couple of days to start work. They were quick, tidy, efficient and very friendly. Colin kept us informed of the progress by email and photos each evening. They tidied up as they went along and we are extremely happy with the work. We would definately recommend them. So a very big thank you to Colin and crew at L & E Roofing.

Having previously used L&E Roofing for our old house, when we discovered roofing issues with our new one we knew that Colin and his team would help us quickly and professionally. We needed a whole new roof, repairs to wood, all new slates, chimneys to be fixed - the works. Colin inspected our roof very quickly and gave us a comprehensive account of what needed done with a quote sent across to us that evening. Since we live in a conservation area, we needed planning permission for the slate change; Colin was very knowledgeable about which slates would be appropriate and in keeping with the house and area. After receiving planning permission, Colin was able to start quickly and his team were on site as expected and immediately got on with the job. Despite the bad weather (snow, wind and hail), Colin and his team worked hard and got our roof done to a high standard. Colin also recommended approved traders such as a joiner and painter which we used for associated works. Happy with all of his work and his recommendations. Colin is a professional and we trust his work and his word. Will use for all our roofing needs.

A late review for a big job completed last summer. The guys completely replaced all timber fascias and fitted new guttering. Colin then identified the underlying reason for the rot - the original roof design trapped water and had started leaking as the ‘waterproof’ felt deteriorated over the years. The guys re-profiled the roof and replaced the bottom third of the sarking and felt. Colin tried to keep costs down and very clearly explained what needed to be done and what didn’t. All work was completed quickly to a high standard for a reasonable fixed price. We then got them to install two new Velux windows. That turned out to be a difficult job because of the type of tiles, but in the end they got it fixed so we were all happy. Colin gets stuck in himself (he's not a paperwork boss) and his guys are cheery hard workers, particularly if you keep them sweet with plenty of tea and biscuits... :-) They clearly know a lot about roofs and have high standards. I would absolutely recommend them, particularly if you have an awkward problem that doesn’t want to go away and you want it fixed properly.

Had the roof and conservatory gutters cleaned out. Good job done. Guys were professional & friendly. Colin was good at communicating clearly, quickly and courteously - from responding to my request for a quote, providing a quote, acknowledging my acceptance of quote, and finding a suitable date ASAP for the work to be done. Thanks to all. I would recommend this company, and I would use them again.

Colin recommended changing our guttering for a larger profile which would help the water flow. I decided not to do this in the first instance, then Colin offered to clean out the gutters free of charge. This was duly done.
