The Merchants Hall
With heavy rain pouring through the roof of our building, we called on Compass Roofing to sort the problem, although they were extremely busy with other emergency call outs they were on scene within an hour of our phone call. Within minutes the build up of water on the roof channels had gone and the leak was brought under control, this saved over a centuries old cornice ceiling from further damage and potentially a very large bill to repair.

Found Compass after searching the web for a local company to replace a velux window in an en-suite bathroom. The service was 1st class from the initial contact to final installation. Would not hesitate to recommend Compass to anyone needing this kind of work carried out.

5th floor tenement gutter & slate defects requiring scaffolding tower. Efficient and professional approach. Happy to talk on site through defects and proposed solutions . Gave good advice on possible future repair risks to watch out for. They did what they said they would do in a sensible time frame.

Friendly and helpful in the whole process from quote to installation. Installation went well and job was finished to high standard. Support staff went out of their way to help out with paperwork I needed to get agreement from neighbours for shared cost. I plan to use them for any future roof issues but given the high quality of the job they did I don't imagine that will be necessary for a long time.

We had an issue with a leaking roof, Compass were able to come out and provide a quote for the repairs which was very reasonable. It was easy to coordinate and communicate with Compass throughout the entire process. A very helpful and professional experience.

Slates in the roof over our boiler had broken and shifted allowing water to leak into the boiler blowing the electrics. Compass Roofing came out within 24hrs and were able to fix it within hours of the gas engineer leaving and we had hot water again that night. Brilliant short notice save and for a reasonable price. Top people. Thanks!

Brilliant service and hopefully solved the mystery of the leaking roof - something two other roofing companies couldn't manage. Highly recommend.

Reliable team of guys, they were really friendly and explained clearly what the problem was, and they were happy to do the work too.
Scott from Compass always answered our phone calls and returned to check the work over. Photos were available of before and after. The team also showed me what the previous company has done and how ineffective and poorly executed it had been.
The new gutters look amazing and more importantly now work.

We were pleased with the advice given to us about our roofing needs when the estimate was carried out. The work was arranged very quickly.
The roofers themselves were great to deal with, and hard working.
When we had subsequent issues with our roof after bad weather, the work was again arranged & carried out very quickly.
The office is clearly very good at communicating customer's needs to the roofers. This made us feel like our satisfaction was important to them. we will definitely use them again for our roofing jobs.

Our flat (and the flat beneath us) was in the process of flooding the other night due to the recent heavy rains. In a panic, I called Compass Roofing's 24 hour emergency line - Scott answered the phone on the first ring and he and his team were on the roof (in the dark and pouring rain) shortly after. They managed to sort out the issue (a clogged drain) for us straight away and no doubt helped to prevent some massive damage to our flat. Excellent and reliable service. Thank you.

Came home to find water flooding through the kitchen ceiling. Phoned Compass as we had used them before at another house and they were great. Immediate answer even though after 5 and guided me through how to unblock the drain on the roof myself, saving us time and money, and no doubt saving the kitchen ceiling too. Still offered to come out if we needed him. Super helpful, really friendly, highly recommended.

Compass roofing came to our help when our shop was broken in to. This was the third time we have had attempted break-ins. Scott at compass roofing and his team did an amazing job fixing our front door adding more locks to all external doors and arranging for us to get a fully installed alarm system and he footed the bill for all the cost, so no costs to the charity. Thanks to them we feel more secure. We cannot thank him enough.... I would have no hesitation in recommending Scott and his team, and I too have had work done at my home needing a new extension roof replaced. He is very fair and have a hard working team.

Thank you for your support..

This was a complex and difficult repair to solve a problem caused by the poor workmanship of a previous contractor.

It was carried out with expertise and perseverance, excellent customer care and good humour.

I am pleased with the result.

Because of the wet weather an exact date to start repairs could not be given. However i was kept informed and everything was carried out as per the estimate in a timely way.

The workmen were polite, friendly and tidied up when finished.

They were very professional and i would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family.

I've used Compass Roofing on two occasions one of which was an emergency where a member of the team came out after 5pm to make temporary repairs. The service is fantastic, helpful, fast and for a fair price - I would definitely recommend Compass!
