There is NO ONE else other than BRS we would trust or use for our roof issues. It would be 6 Star Rating if it was possible :-)

Having used Mr Benson for many years to both old (period) and new (build) properties. We have experienced EVERYTIME exceptional service and perfection in workmanship. It is a rarity to have a tradesman with both HONESTY and INTEGRITY. And such in depth expert knowledge in both specialist period and modern roofs.

We loved the fact that we were sent photo's at every stage of the job and kept up to date, even with the difficult sourcing of materials in covid times.... which indeed Mr Benson found solutions for.

Mr Benson is passionate about his profession and the preservation of old buildings, and been invaluable for giving us peace of mind. Our Roof has never looked better, but most of all the neighbours have commented on how friendly, efficient and professional Mr Benson and his team are (leaving the place immaculate after scaffolding etc)....... we would NEVER go anywhere else for our roof and can't recommend Mr Benson HIGHLY enough.

Remove slates to both small slate panels, re felt areas. Slate the slightly larger area with welsh slates. Over whole pitch area, with lead dressed ridge roll to firstly act as a water check kerb and also to act as a lead ridge for the adjoining panel. Renew lead ridge crown with new lead allowing for all bossing and welding .

This was a tricky area to repair and after numerous other roofers failing to rectify the problem over the last 10 years, Wayne of Benson Roofing has rectified the problem first time.

He was very prompt and professional in all aspects of the project .

I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

We couldn’t be happier with the work we had carried out by Bensons Roofing Services. His first estimation was thorough and easy to understand. When the scope of the job increased, he kept us up to date at all stages of the process. His work has been of the highest quality, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in using his services again. In a city where finding trustworthy tradespeople can be difficult, Wayne and the Bensons team have been exemplary.

Remedial work to dorma roofs and general roofing maintenance/repairs - the work was assessed and the recommendations clearly justified and quoted as committed. The work was scheduled with consideration for our availability and the workers were prompt and considerate in carrying out the work. Care was taken to make sure that all aspects of the roof were checked over and when some small additional tasks were identified they were discussed and the work done within the original quotation. We were left feeling confident that the job had been done by experts and that we could rely on the work done. We will be calling on BRS again to keep the roof in good condition.

We needed some general maintenance work on our roof - repointing chimneys, hacking out and replacing a slew. Wayne came over and gave us a very reasonable estimate to complete the work, especially compared to the other quote we received. Wayne then arranged to start the work within a week. It was completed quickly and efficiently with no disruption to myself or my young baby. We would absolutely recommend him and shall certainly use him again.

Our shared roof needed a range of repairs. Slipped slates, leaking gutters, ridge repairs over bay windows and lead flashing repair. Wayne explained clearly what needed to be done, he turned up on time and did all the work to a high standard and for a good price. He followed this up with an email to check all the work was sound. It’s great to find an honest professional who cares about doing the job correctly. I will use him again and am already recommending him to others.

We had a roof inspection (house and garage). We had repairs to roof, sofias, fascias, tiles and full work done on garage roof (flat roof).

I was really pleased with everything and would definitely recommend Mr Benson. He was all the things you look for in someone doing work to your home:
friendly;
trustworthy;
good advice;
good value;
highly skilled and knowledgeable;
hard working (got the job done really quickly with no mess);
able to give a certificated guarantee for the work done on the garage which is very reassuring and useful for when you come to sell your house.

Very happy with the service performed. Bruce explained in advance what needed to be done and why. The cost was very reasonable and the work was carried out very professionally and efficiently.
As I was very happy with the work I arranged for him to review and carry out work on my daughter’s house.
Have arranged for an annual review to be carried out going forward.

Wayne Benson and his team of roofers took on a difficult roofing job on our Victorian mid-terrace property which was damaged in the New year 2016 storm. First they came and did an emaergency repair very quickly and explained all he believed would need to be done. Because the property is owned by a charity, we needed to get insurance quotes and multiple bids. By the time all of that was in hand, the firm was completely busy with other storm victims. So we had to wait our turn. However the emergency repair held up for the necessary 3 months and the final repair was done quickly and efficiently and cleanly once they came.

I definitely recommend them.

Wayne was a huge help to us out when we were buying a property, with a few existing roof issues. He visited the property time and time again giving his professional opinion to our solicitor, before carrying out the work once we'd moved in. We won't use anyone else in future!

We have used Benson Roofing Services for a number of years to carry out an annual inspection of the roof area of our tenement and have always been very happy with the service they provide. I have always been happy with Wayne and the response time he takes once he carries out an inspection of the roof and then provides a detailed estimate of works required. Once the order has been placed the work is completed soon after. Would be more than happy to recommend Benson Roofing Services.

My bungalow roof was nearly 80 years old and required constant maintenance due to the age and so I decided to have it replaced. I did a lot of research into prices and into the different companies available. I got several quotes and decided that Benson Roofing Services (BRS) were my best option due to their reputation, experience and price. The owner Wayne explained exactly what would happen at each stage and supervised all the work carried out. There were no additional costs added and the work was carried out efficiently and with the mininmum of fuss. I was delighted with the result and cannot reccomend BRS highly enough.

Our Hotel Company have use Benson Roofing for many different sized projects over the course of the last 9 or so years. Wayne Benson's knowledge and experience of all types of roof works is invaluable to us as he brings this tremendous experience to bear on any repair or preventative maintenance project he tackles. With his guidance we have saved thousands of pounds. He is utterly reliable and trustworthy, and in my experience, he will never cut corners to finish a job. Once done, it stays done. I have no hesitation in recommending Benson Roofing. He posseses two rare qualities - honesty and integrity.
