We had work done on our roof to repair a zinc gully and replace loose and broken slates. Jason showed us photos of what needed done beforehand and Alan kept us well informed as the work progressed. We have a full set of photos of the work done. We were very impressed by the prompt replies to all our emails and by the professional standards of everyone involved. We would thoroughly recommend the services of GW & JS Construction Ltd.

Second time of using GW & JS Construction to repair leaks on slate roofs. Both times Jason was very quick to respond, explained the problems with supporting photos. The repairs were then carried out in a very speedy and effective manner. A profesional, friendly and trustworthy company.

Jason and Guy have looked after our roof for years and we have always been 100% happy with their work. Jobs have ranged from small gutter clearances to complete replacement of all slates. They are unfailingly friendly, reliable and professional, as are their team. We wouldn't trust anyone else!

Great experience from start to finish!

Jason came round to inspect the issue a day or two after I called and then gave a quote for the works the following day. He let me know the lead time for the job which was also pretty much bang-on to the day work started.

Alan and Frank carried out the repairs and took multiple photos showing the before/during and after stages of the repair to indicate exactly what work had been carried out.

Would definitely recommend their services and I'll be giving them a call in the future should the need arise!

We are delighted with the service and grateful to Jason at GW & JS Construction Ltd for his quick response in coming out to inspect our roof which had been leaking. Jason turned up at the time stated, he was very professional and polite, inspected the roof, carried out the job in question and we have agreed to use him again to inspect another property.
Very impressed with the company, their efficient manner and would recommend.

Once again I am very happy to recommend Jason and his team.
The gable wall had storm damage, causing a couple areas of harling to be lost.
Jason promptly answered my email,came to check what had to be done the next day and work started soon after. This included organising scaffolding to allow safe access above the garage.
As usual Alan and Frank who carried out the repair,did a great job. Keeping me updated.All debris was removed and my drive left clean.
The scaffolding was taken down within a couple of days.

Recent galeforce winds led to an emergency situation for me. Part of a skylight had ended up lying in a flower bed in my back garden, and the rain was getting in to my loft. When I contacted Jason (having had work done by him a few years ago), he came the next day, put a temporary cover over the hole, and advised that all I needed was to order new glass to be set into the original cast-iron skylight frame. As previously, Jason was very courteous and helpful, and this time, he even refused payment for his visit. The result: he has set my mind at rest, and given me the pleasant experience of dealing with a charming and really kind person. He remains top of my list for any future work.

We needed roof slates to be replaced, and a gutter re-aligned. After I left a message, Jason called me back the same day, and visited the next. He sent on the quote on the day of the visit. Alan and Frank completed the work over two visits (afternoon, and first thing in the morning), and left the area very tidy.

Really good experience dealing with the firm all the way through.

We have used GW & JS Construction on a number of occasions eg for chimney repairs, leaking roof round a velux, and found them to be highly professional and efficient. They are also very responsive, polite and courteous, even offering free advice and signposting during survey visits if the problem does not require their services. We have used this company for roofing and construction issues for a number of years and would highly recommend them.

Ridge tile replacement.
I’ve been using GW & JS Construction Ltd for 10 years now and, as that would suggest, they are an excellent firm of roofers. They are reliable, straightforward and trustworthy. Jason always responds quickly and they does what he says he will unlike most trades nowadays. Their work is always of a high standard and in my opinion their pricing is fair.

This is my second time using GW & JS Construction Ltd for a roofing issue. Had a leak with an old conservatory roof right at the join of the house roof that was only going to get worse. Contacted Jason who had dealt with a roof issue in a previous property from a few years back and it was nice that he remembered me. We discussed the issue and he came round prepared with all the relevant tools. Jason was able to mend the potential issue the same day. He showed me the damage and repair with before and after photos and explained what was repaired and realistic expectancy of the repair. We discussed potential options with the existing old creaky roof which will really help with long term decisions.

I am absolutely delighted that there was no fuss, no mess and that I was able to use Jason’s services again as I was so impressed with the professionalism the first time. Complete piece of mind.

This is the second time I have used GW & JS Construction for chimney stack repairs and have found their guys to be courteous and helpful. I suppose with roof repairs only time will tell but my overall impression is that the quality and workmanship appear to be excellent. There 6 week lead time was adhered to which was also appreciated.
I would certainly recommend this company.
