Review Comments
Compass have just finished a major roof repair on my old stone cottage and I am absolutely delighted with the result. Having never had to have any major works done before on my home I was extremely nervous about finding a reputable company. I had absolutely nothing to worry about with Compass, Scott and Gary have managed the whole process with complete professionalism and made sure I was kept fully up to date with progress. Being an old property there were inevitably some hidden surprises but everything was discussed with me in full detail and I can’t thank them enough for ensuring the repair was sympathetic to the old buildings needs. The men on site were wonderful, so respectful and courteous to me and my neighbours and they made sure that the site was left tidy at the end of every day. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this firm, thank you to Scott, Gary and the rest of the team!

Review Comments
We just had half our roof replaced, we started with just changing the gutter and ended up changing nearly the whole roof. Our house is a 150 year old Georgian building and once you start you always see something more needing fixing. As the work progresses you see more and more needing done???? got to be done otherwise it would obviously cost us more in the future. We are so lucky to find a dedicated and honest company that really care about their job and their clients. Once started they were halfway way putting on the new roof and the team and Gary, the supervisor, noticed that the slate they were putting on was below standard. The team completely changed the slate standard because it will cause a problem later and not up to the acceptable standard required. Not the roofers fault they were supplied the wrong material, they didn’t know this either, see where I’m going in here, they could just left it because we wouldn’t know if it was the wrong material. This company and the whole team works really hard to give you the best service you could ask for. They work as a team and that’s very important for the best results. The roofers are very dedicated and communicative but without the supervision of Gary, always checking and always present to make sure that everything is ip to standard. Scott (the boss) take note, it’s hard to find good workers, look after them all and they will look after you. If there is ten out of ten I will give this company ten, oh and they are so tidy. Completely cleaned up after the job and the completed roof is an excellent job. ????

Review Comments
The roof and rainwater goods at our tenement block on Marchmont Road were in a poor state of repair culminating in some serious leaks in a number of the flats. The residents held a meeting and agreed to get quotes for work to bring the roof up to a good state of repair. In all, four Edinburgh roofing companies provided quotes based on a common specification. Compass Roofing provided the most competitive quote and were selected by us to carry out the work. All leadwork on the roof was removed and replaced with new lead and all missing tiles replaced. The rainwater goods were brought up to a good working order, replaced where necessary and repainted with three coats of paint. The Compass staff were polite and courteous and I found their foreman Gary Moir responsive, helpful and good to work with. I would recommend Compass to anyone looking for a roofer in Edinburgh.

Review Comments
We had a new insulated membrane roof installed together with some pointing work, guttering and a new cupola and skylight.

The work began quickly after agreeing the contract and Scott's team were polite, friendly and very happy to answer our questions as the work progressed and flexible about incorporating additional works we requested.

At one stage we were considering getting solar PV installed at the same time as the new roofing and Compass were very happy to work closely with the solar installers, though for planning reasons we didn't go ahead with that in the end.

The pricing turned out to be identical to a homer quote we got but Compass offered a guarantee and were able to do the other work like pointing and the cupola so we went with them. They took great care to protect our glass conservatory by covering it over with boards and cleaned up after themselves.

On the basis of our experience, I've no hesitation in recommending Compass if you want a single ply membrane flat roof done.

Excellent work and service from Scott and his team:
- new insulation and single ply membrane on top flat roof
- new slating, lead work, rones and in-roof solar pv panels on rear sloping roof
- old cupolas replaced with beautiful new sky lanterns in top roof
- new glazed attic exit hatch to roof
- two replacement chimney pots
High quality professional work using top quality materials, and Scott provided a lot of help in selecting the sky lanterns and the optimum installation for them.

Very impressed with how prompt, friendly and professional Compass Roofing were. They did a fantastic job and repaired our roof including basic mistakes made by another company just months earlier. The office staff were so efficient and friendly. The man who came to inspect the roof and provide and estimate was very thorough and professional, and then the roofers who came to carry out the work (just days after my initial phone call) were also friendly and thorough. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company or use them again in future if necessary. Thanks!!

I cannot recommend Compass Roofing highly enough. They provided services for a job that 2 other roofing companies had turned down because the access, and job, was complicated. They delivered a quality solution at a fair price, with a really helpful attitude. 5 star.

From my initial enquiry and receiving our quotation through to the final stage of works completed I found the team at Compass Roofing communicated all aspects of the process efficiently and clearly. I was impressed by the time taken to actively listen to our needs and requirements. I acted on behalf of a stair of 6 neighbours being both owners and council tenants and have lead the job from start to finish. Due to the amount of works required and the cost per household we had to be certain that we were all in agreement to use the service of Compass. After looking into Compass Roofing history of works and discussion with the team i felt confident that they were ideal to complete the works. Now the works have been completed the right decision was made and all parties happy.

This family owned and run Company have now completed two reroofing projects for us.
One, on our home, replacing an old "Rosemary" tiles and copper mansard roof with reclaimed slate, new lead work and new single ply membrane included stripping the old roof, and repairing/replacing sarking.
The second, the roof to a terraced rental property where an old slate roof roof with dormers was replaced with new slate and lead and included removal of old roof, replacement of rotten sarking and replacement of all the rainwater goods.
I believe the fact we have used them on two properties speaks for itself. All their staff are real Tradesmen and we have allways found them very pleasant and polite. Their work sites are well organised and tidy and Scott, the owner, and his son, Lewis, ensure that their high standards are maintained by giving each project the attention it deserves !
I would recommend Compass unreservedly.

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.

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.
