Work done: patching up and re-pointing of roof ridges.
The work ended up taking four days, which was longer than expected, though admittedly this was partly caused by bad weather. In any case, I am happy with the standard of the work and the professional manner in which it was carried out.

Review Comments
EQB re-roofed our 1970s bungalow. Their price was around the middle of four quotations and I consider their specification to be superior (e.g. using traditional timber sarking). Richard Davies is qualified in Project Management and he was able to discuss the job intelligently with us. His professional approach was evident in the thoughtful arrangement of skips and scaffolding to simplify the removal and replacement of tiles. Richard and his team were polite, friendly, quiet and good humoured. They worked full days without interruption whenever the weather allowed and the work was completed on schedule. Richard took personal charge throughout. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of construction and he was helpful in dealing with a redundant asbestos flue and providing ventilation through the roof for a drying room. Also, he reduced the number of holes in the new roof by installing air admittance valves instead of vent pipes. The ultimate test of the new roof will be when we experience heavy rain and strong winds but I am very optimistic that it will be as good as it looks.

Review Comments
Richard (of EQB) came to see my roof and very quickly assessed what had to be done, a couple of days later his estimate of works came through for my consideration. I was impressed with the thoroughness of his quote, the price quoted was very fair, less than half that of some other roofers.
Richard has been very fair and honest with me throughout the complete renewal of my roof.
Over the 2 weeks he has kept me up to date with the work being undertaken by his team of very able roofers.
I can recommend the services of EQB to all those wishing to have work done on their roof. If you go with EQB you can have faith that you will get a good job done

Coated all the flat areas and gutters with a membrane and compound providing a water resistant surface. Also replaced a rotting garage roof.
Workers seemed pleasant and helpful and Richard was quick to respond positively to any problems that arose. Work was carried out to a good standard with no hidden costs, and seemed competitively priced.
Quite satisfied with the work.

We noticed a leak in our bathroom coming from the roof when it was raining heavily. I rang EQB as they were based nearby and a member of the team came out on the same day to check the roof. They noticed a few problems and provided a detailed quote with pictures of the damage as well as how they would recommend repairing. Arranging the repair was quick and easy, Rodielyn was very helpful, answered all of our queries swiftly and provided us with all of the necessary documents to claim back costs from neighbours in the block. Excellent service and very professional.

Review Comments
I had issues with a leak in the living room of my flat which was due to some damaged mortar on the roof. I spoke to EQB and Richard called me back shortly after to arrange a time to visit. We talked through the issue a bit over the phone and he came round to give me a quote a few days later. He was very straight forward, helpful, took photos of the problem areas and the quote arrived a couple of days later.

I was very wary as roofing problems can be expensive but Richard was very easy to deal with, and even gave me some good tips for the onerous task of telling the other residents in the stairwell of the incoming bill! He talked through the issues in laymens terms and kept it straight forward the whole time.

On the day I simply had to let in the workmen to the stairwell and they went into the loft to complete the work. The next day I received photos of all the areas that had been repaired.

The total cost was £410 for 1 days work which required 2 workmen with rope and harness access. This included materials.

Of the traders I contacted for a quote, EQB were by far the best at explaining the causes of our roofing problem and exactly how they would sort it. They answered all our questions, gave a detailed quote, came when they said they would and carried out a professional job.

They responded quickly when I sought a visit to look for the cause of a roof leak. They provided a clear report, backed by photographs. The repair work was then carried out quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

The owners at (address removed by admin) have used EBQ 3 times in the last 3 years for various bits of roof work. Originally used EBQ on a recommendation from a friend. The recommendation has not disappointed :-

Easy and efficient Company to deal with

Costs highly competitive by the use rope access techniques where possible.

Same experienced roofers appeared each time

Therefore I would have no hesitation using them again when our roof next needs work done.
