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.

The work done on my garage roof and guttering was completely satisfactory. Following the initial visit, the work was scheduled quickly and carried out efficiently. The workmen were friendly, polite and explained what they would be doing. I shall certainly use this firm again and am happy to recommend them.

Provided a professional survey and quotation for a variety of work on my home, including a detailed breakdown of what was required to be done in each area.
Responsive to contact via calls and e-mails and kept to arranged appointment times.
Work was completed efficiently and to a high standard by the team, often working through bad weather to keep to schedule.
Kept me fully informed during the process of carrying out the work, and ensured that I was completely happy with the finished work. I had one snagging item to resolve post-completion, which was done quickly and to my satisfaction.
Happy to recommend the services of Jason, Guy and the rest of the team and would use them again in future without hesitation.

I have used GW&JS for over 10 years and have found that they provide a professional, efficient customer-focused service. Jason, as always, provided good advice and ensured that I was informed throughout. The team arrived punctually on the scheduled day, completed the works as planned and left the site clean and tidy. Guy fully described the issues found, the work undertaken and also checked the integrity of the rest of the roof. I would have no hesitation in recommending GW&JS Construction and would certainly use them again.

I asked GWJS to check our roof for possible leak and to give me a quote. Jason came early in the morning and did his inspection. He found out that the window on our attic needs sealant applied. So he went back to his van and got his tools and ladder. He resealed the sides of the window and did not charge me for it eventhough I insisted to pay. Jason was very professional, courteous, friendly, very tidy and honest. I highly recommend GWJS Roofing and I will be spreading their company name to all of my friends!

I noticed some watermarks on my ceiling so called GWJS to come inspect my roof and to provide a quotation. Jason arrived on time and after his inspection he noted some minor crack on the chimney which is where he thinks the water is getting into the roof. He applied a sealant to the crack and didn't charge me for it. He also helped me sort out a slipped tile while he was up on the roof. Jason was very friendly and polite. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Word of mouth is always the best advert, and GW & JS Construction Ltd came highly recommended, and I can now similarly highly recommend them!
Jason and Guy did a fantastic job fixing my office roof making it wind and waterproof and maintenance free, ready to face the elements!
Professional, punctual, informative, friendly and tidy.
Communication was second to none from start to finish; impressive.

From the first visit to assess the work required through to the completion they were all very punctual and helpful. The two who did the roof work were pleasant and polite and they tidied up well when they were finished.
Very pleased with our new flat roof.
