I had my roof repaired after damage caused over time and by the storm. It was a very busy time for all roofing companies however Compass Roofing were able to come out and do emergency repairs within a week before completing the full job within the month. They communicated with me very well and were extremely helpful. They also carried out the work for over £1500 less than the company that gave me my first quote. It was my first time dealing with a roofing company and I can't imagine using anyone else in the future. Would highly recommend.

Compass did extensive roof work for us. It was efficiently done in a short period of time. Kelly kept us informed about what was happening and when and it all went as planned.

We live in a historic terrace with a slate roof which had not been maintained for nearly two decades. Compass Roofing inspected on site, with constructive comments and a pragmatic tender. They scheduled repair and arranged for scaffolding. Their roofing tradesmen were courteous, tidy and worked rapidly, completing the job over two days. They repaired or replaced over 100 slates and checked condition of chimneys, with cement patching around the edge of the rear lower kitchen roof. We were entirely satisfied & will contract Compass to perform annual maintenance going forwards.

A very quick response and turn around. Had two flat roofs replaced, plus a fix for a leak under a velux window. Everything went smoothly, although it did take a while for the scafolding to come down which wasn't a big problem. A couple of weeks later there was some more leak under the velux window after heavy rain (less than before) and they sent someone who addressed it within on hour. So yes, I am very happy with the service provided and we would use them again in future and recommend them to everyone.

Whole slate roof replaced and some flat roof work. Gave a competitive quote, work started when scheduled, great communication keeping us in the loop, very efficient and completed work rapidly despite severe weather. Cleared up every day, on completion of work would never know they had been, apart from the new roof. Responded and resolved minor snag within hours. Always had an individual's contact number if needed. Perfect, would not hesitate to recommend.

Call for an emergency call-out when our roof leaked and flooded the house in recent heavy rain - on Sunday afternoon. They picked up the phone, identified the problem on the call quickly, guys were over in 30 min after the call and repaired the clogged gutter and sorted the problem straight away. Very happy with the fast professional and friendly service, will use again and strongly recommend. 5 stars!

Review Comments
We first used Compass Roofing in 2020 at the start of the first lock-down when we found evidence of a leak in our flat roof. Even though we had not at that time accepted the Compass estimate, Scott and Lewis came and made a temporary repair. Having eventually accepted their estimate, we went with Compass and they started work at the end of lockdown. Unfortunately, on removing the old felt membranes, it was found that the roof underneath was rotten due to water ingress over many years; the result of bad workmanship. Parts of the walls were also affected. Scott was very helpful and arranged a property preservation company to meet with us and agree a way forward to repair the damage. The damaged walls were repaired and a very sick-looking bitumen felt covering replaced with Alwitra single ply membrane. The repair looks great. The Compass staff were very pleasant and helpful when on site. Furthermore, Scott listened to us when we raised any concerns or had any questions. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Review Comments
We had to have the entire roof and skylight replaced, and compass were very good through the entire process. We were able to get a much better skylight, double glazed, and the roof is water tight, and all happening around the pandemic and lockdowns.

The customer service really shines, though. We had our work go on over two lockdowns and Scott knew who we were and what was going on each time we called. And as delays meant our roof had two patches they were very rapid in responding to emergency and cost came under the original quote as they couldn’t do the replacement as expected. I am sure they were as frustrated as we were with CoVid, but they handled everything very professionally.

Quality of the work is good and we are very happy with the new roof!

Contacted Compass Roofing for an emergency roof repair after waking up to a leaking bedroom ceiling and we would highly recommend for roof repairs!

Phone answered immediately, and Scott chatted through our issues, and ensured roof was accessible before dispatching the roofers (to ensure they could access to fix the issue). Great communication, and advised the roofers would be with us by 10.30am - and indeed they were.

Issue quickly identified and fixed - the roofers took time to explain the issue, provide photos of the damage and replaced the 3 damaged slates.

They also suggested we could benefit from a further 1/2 day maintenance visit to assess the entire roof and identify any further damaged tiles, repair a leek in the rowan etc (we will certainly take their advice).

We were so impressed with professionalism, and how quickly they arrived to provide emergency repair, particularly during the tier 4 Scottish lockdown when several builders/roofing companies have had to temporarily close. Trusted traders indeed, a fare price for an emergency callout and highly recommend. Thanks again to Scott, Kelly and the roofers.

Our roof was badly damaged by excessive winds in a storm back in May leaving us with an emergency situation. We called Compass Roofing who responded immediately by sending roofers out to make a temporary repair and made our roof watertight. They subsequently fully repaired the roof and have done an excellent job. They've been completely professional throughout each stage of the work and really good to deal with, always friendly,efficient and reliable. I've been extremely impressed by their service and would have no hesitation in highly recommending them.

I highly recommend Compass Roofing . From the first telephone call to the last slate on my new roof Compass roofing delivered a top rate - 5 star service .

The project team were extremely professional and gave outstanding customer service. The team guided by Lewis were highly skilled and very polite. They took great pride in doing a good job and kept me fully informed with regular updates and pictures during the installation.

The last time the roof looked so good was when the house was built 100+ years ago. What an amazing transformation.
