If you want a roofer who is really nice to speak with, arrives when they say they will and do a great job then go with Portobello roofing (don't look any further). These guys are my roofers from now on. Very happy.

Review Comments
We contacted James from Portobello Roofing because one of the storms had caused the lead flashing on our roof ridge to peel away. It wasn't an emergency, but we wanted it sorted before it got any worse. That was on a Saturday afternoon. James came round on the following Monday and had it fixed within half an hour. They repaired the lead and also put in some sealant to ensure it is weathertight and secure. They did a great job, very promptly and with no fuss. the cost was very reasonable and we are very please all round.

James & co, did an excellent job cleaning out our well needed clogged up guttering.
We had originally asked him for a quote for removing moss off the roof! He was honest enough to tell us it didn’t actually need done and explained reasons. I respect honesty and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them for future work and have no qualm in recommending them.
Many thanks Linda

Short notice roof repair after Storm Arwen damage. Rapid response, estimate and roof repair completed in good time, to a high standard and according to estimate. James and his team communicated well throughout and we would not hesitate to recommend or use Portobello Roofing for future works.

I only needed a small job done and, unlike many other companies, they didn't see this as an opportunity to discover additional work. They were punctual, efficient and easy to deal with. Very pleased with Portobello Roofing and more than happy to recommend them.

Review Comments
Large flat garage roof completely replaced; all timber support structures with rubber sheet roofing. Work ethic and quality was generally excellent using quality materials even for the more mundane consumable items (e.g. stainless steel screws/nails where appropriate). Tidied up well on completion of works even though old roof covering was unpleasantly sodden and very messy during removal. To be highly recommended for such works.

Portobello Roofing have done a few small jobs for me at 3 different properties and I've been very happy with them. They were quick to identify what needed to be done in each case and explained fully what work would be required. Turned up when they said they would. Professional, tidy, friendly and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!
