We moved into a property which had a new roof put on approx 15yrs ago. We noticed a very small leak coming in a trap door and we rang the guys who got back to us straight away and came out to us within a couple of days. Quick inspection and the source was found and sorted there and then; at no extra cost. Superb customer service and efficiency. Would highly recommend.

Jason responded and came swiftly to fix a leak in our garage roof. He happily resealed open joints in the existing covering (rather than suggesting an expensive replacement like others had done). After a few months a small leak reappeared and, again, Jason responded quickly, this time fixing it there and then the day after I emailed him! The icing on the cake was being told there was no charge because all their work is guaranteed for a year! Excellent service, thank you!

Excellent felt re roofing of 60 year old double garage with pitched roof. Replacement of only necessary woodwork. Fitting of gutters and down pipes and fascia boards. Kept us well informed of any changes to scheduling etc. Good customer service. The team were clean and tidy as the work progressed and removed all waste. It’s been several months since the work has been done and the roof has been subjected to all the weathers. All joints and seams tight. Definitely recommend.

Review Comments
Remedial corrective work carried out following poor workmanship of neighbour's recent full roof re-state by their very diabolically unskilled roofers which had badly impacted my roof at the adjoining part of the roof (semi-detached property) on both the front and rear of my property, in addition to around the chimney apron lead work.

Jason and Alan are very professional, efficient and pleasant to deal with. It was immediately obvious upon meeting them that this company takes their work very seriously which was very reassuring (especially given the distress our roof issue had caused). This is clearly a very professional company and from experience, it can be extremely difficult to find roofers like this. Jason and Alan discussed with me what needed to be done and the job was completed with the greatest of efficiency. The site was cleared and no mess was left. Not only does my roof no longer leak, but it now looks as it should. I really can't recommend GW & JS Roofing enough!

Guy came to inspect roof at my property and quoted £250 + vat which I accepted in writing. No date was given for the work as advised not urgent and Company would contact me in due course.
Last Tuesday evening I received a surprise email advising two workers had come to my home and completed repairing/replacing slates on roof. They charged a further £150.00 + vat stating there was more work required, but no details on the invoice. Neither my wife or myself were at home so they proceeded to enter my property and carry out work without permission.
I have now managed to agree a compromise with Jason that the additional charge would be reduced to £75 + vat bringing total due £390.
I would not deal with this Company again.

Our guys are working through numerous jobs for completion before Christmas and they couldn’t make contact and carried out the works with no one home, however did take photos of works carried out, which was more than quoted for. I emailed customer invoice and advised separately that we carried out additional works, accompanying photos with an extra cost, however back and forth until we came to a compromise.
We apologise for any inconveniences caused.

Missing slate replacement, leaking guttering and minor roof repairs.
I was advised that they had a large back log of work due to Covid restrictions and it took 2 months from first contact to completing the job. But it was worth the wait as they turned up when they said they would. The roofers were very polite and friendly and kept me informed of the work they were doing. Photos of before and after the repairs were provided.
I recommend GW & JS Construction Ltd for any roof repairs but be warned they are very busy!

Recommended to me by neighbour. My roof needed work replacing certain tiles and examining and redoing pointing as necessary.
Work was done properly and quickly. I was impressed by the efficacy of all the work done. I will use this company again if the need arises.

I have used GW&JS Construction Ltd several times over the past decade and have always found them to be efficient, trustworthy and professional. Jason, one of the Directors, kept me fully informed throughout the process responding promptly to any queries, often within just a few hours.

The team arrived on site as planned on the first day and set about their work diligently namely taking down two chimneys and retiling the voids all of which was completed a day ahead of schedule. The site was left tidy throughout and I was very pleased with the end result. I would have no hesitation in recommending GW&JS Construction Ltd and will certainly use them again for any future roofing works.
