Following water ingress to the house, Jason & Guy undertook roof repairs which included slate replacement and moss/algae removal on the main roof, along with the complete replacement of a flat roof on the porch. The porch task also involved heightening the porch roof, to allow rainwater to more efficiently drain into existing guttering. The result is fantastic, with the entire porch looking brand new! All aspects of the work were undertaken professionally and with respect to the existing property/garden area. Jason & Guy were punctual and, importantly, reliable. They are a credit to their profession and I have no hesitation in recommending them for roof repairs. I would certainly contact them again in the future.

Repair and harling to chimney stack, cleaning of roof and mending roof ridge, and replacing broken front door steps with a sloping gravel path. They were excellent workers, pleasant to deal with and very reliable.

Removed chimney to roof level and re-slated where it previously was. Replaced multiple sections of cast iron and plastic guttering.
Excellent service. Work was agreed and carried out a few weeks later at a time which suited me. All the team were extremely friendly and helpful. Very happy with the work. Would recommend and would use again if need arises.

Had issues with our flat roof amongst other roof work. Despite these being worse than originally thought Guy and Jason worked hard to keep additional costs to a minimum. Very reliable and kept us informed.

Thanks to all the team !

We had a potentially damaging water leak from a skylight in the attic. We were provided with a pair of quotes to remedy the issue. One a straightforward repair and a second for a repair and replacement Velux window. We chose the latter. The work was carried out smoothly and efficiently with no disruption to daily routine. During the work several additional tiles were identified as damaged. We agreed to their replacement at additional cost. When the final invoice arrived this cost was minimal.

We were advised at every stage of the works and all workmen (including the scaffolders) left the area clean and tidy on completion.

No hesitation in recommending the company, and (should the need arise) would have no hesitation in calling them again.

I've looked to Jason and his team for regular checks and maintenance on our roof for a number of years now. The service is excellent in terms of both the advice given and the quality of any work required. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Rooflight and rotten timberwork repaired. The proprietors are friendly, reliable and respond promptly. The work was carried out as planned and the repairs were effective with no recurrence of the problems. I have no hesitation in recommending this firm.

After heavy rain I experienced water pouring through my roof to my ceiling. Jason attended and dealt swiftly with an immediate fix around my dormer where the problem was. The full repair was organised on a date of my preference with the cost estimate becoming the actual cost. Helpful approach throughout with full explanation at every stage. Safety also seemed important as were manners! Thank you. Pleasure to deal with.

Repair to chimney and new gutters. Quote given very reasonable. My aerial looked very shaky and they recommended an aerialist look at it. I made the call and aerialist arrived and on inspection he could see it was completely broken - been up for more than 40 years - and showed me faulty wiring and mast stand hanging by a thread so new one replaced.

New gutters painted inside and out. Chimney pot very loose and whilst repairing it the guys also noticed 2nd chimney not so good so repaired that also at no extra cost. Guys were very friendly and work went very smoothly.

All in all job well done!

Quick response to enquiry and prompt visit. Fair assessment of state of roof and recommended solution for current cracked gutter problem. Immediate quote for cracked gutter patching repair which I accepted and work carried out there and then. Pleased with result.
Invoice submitted by email and I made prompt payment via BACS.
I requested quote for the other recommended maintenance work. This was promptly forwarded via email for our consideration.
Pleased with professionalism, work and associated communications.

This is the second job I have used this company for as I was so impressed the first time. The service and their communication is second to none and the workmanship cannot be faulted. Really nice guys too. We have just had our rhones, downpipes and facings prepared and painted. Some companies might have gone ahead and painted them despite the cold weather but they were honest enough to let us know the consequences should they have carried on. I highly recommend this company and would not hesitate in using them again.

Excellent service from initial inspection of the work required to completion of the job. Jason and Guy were very thorough in their approach to assessing the job. The work was scheduled promptly and the team who carried out the repairs were fantastic and really lovely guys. Would not hesitate to recommend any of the team involved with our repairs. Found the quote and final invoice to be extremely fair and an excellent standard of work. Excellent experience with this company.

I had a leaking roof and also a cracked chimney stack which needed attention. Jason arrived at appointed time for initial inspection and then followed up with quote and photos of roof issues later that day. I was kept up to date with progress and made aware of additional issues as they arose and was pleased that the job was completed on time and in budget. Jason, Guy and the team are all very professional, friendly and efficient and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
