Unblocked downpipe and removed a small tree that had started to grow on another downpipe. All this was done on the morning after my phone call and at very reasonable cost. I hope to use this company for further external pipe work and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a roofer.

We needed a high repair carried out to a downpipe at the rear of our property which has very restricted access. Richard responded very quickly to my initial enquiry through Trusted Trader and was very determined to find a solution to the access problem which he did. Richard and his team carried out the repair work quickly and efficiently at a reasonable cost and I have no hesitation in recommending them for this type of work and giving them a 5 star review.

I have been using EQB for routine roof maintenance and annual checkups for 8 years. During that time I have found them very reliable. They answer emails quickly, and turn up on time. Nowadays I just get in touch and ask them to come and check out and maintain the roof without me even having to be in.

Naturally, I don't go up on the roof and look at what they have done, but I trust them to do a good job.

We were very happy with the immediate response regarding a leak in our roof. The communication with the office was great and the leak was tackled swiftly and repaired very well, so we did not have to worry before going away in the autumn holidays.
Thank you very much!

I was very pleased with EQB. Professional, thorough & very reliable. Nuanced advice re roof defects. Quick, clear communication (even in an exceptionally busy period for them). Queries & modifications to their Quotation Report, after their visit, were easily & quickly dealt with by email. It was a pleasure using EQB. Strongly recommended.

EQB dealt expertly with a long standing leak in the roof of a Victorian Edinburgh house that had previously been missed and kept returning to spoil paint and plasterwork. In addition, the freak storm rains of August 11 had found another ingress for rainwater that damaged a ceiling. EQB diagnosed and fixed the problem here,too.
Prompt, responsive and professional, they also, reassuringly, provided photos both of the problems they identified and the repairs they carried out.

Excellent: can't recommend them highly enough: EQB put a new roof on the mansion block, where we have a top floor flat. A leaky chimney was also repaired and loose slats replaced. We had a very reasonable quote - not an estimate - and a 20 year manufacturer's guarantee. Richard was happy to answer dozens of questions about the job, he always called back the same day if anyone left a message. The work was done on time and we now have a fabulous new roof for the approaching winter. No stresses or strains, just 15 satisfied flat owners.

Richard and his team were excellent.
We had an issue with our roof which was leaking to the floor below.

Richard and his team accessed the issue and provided us with a quote. After that they came over and took care of everything. Very meticulous and tidy, they completed the job in two days just before Christmas.

Would definitely recommend

Review Comments
We tried for years to sort our leaky rooftop terrace. The only options found were untenable based on time, cost and the level of disruption. EQB Roofing came up with a solution that was relatively quick to install, without disruption to the business, looks much better than what we had before and comes with a 30 year guarantee, contributing to its cost-effectiveness. This was 18 months ago and we are delighted with it. Since then they have solved a number of other building issues, the latest being a leak that once investigated, exposed rotten joists that needed urgent attention with the introduction of steel supports. In little over a week from first discovering this, the work was complete. Over the last 18 months they have proved repeatedly that they are not only excellent builders and roofers, but are problem-solvers who can think outside the box. They have also backed up their ideas with work that is completed in a timely manner, fitting in with the considerable needs of our business. They are also very pleasant to deal with.

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.
