Review Comments
I had a concern about a building issue in my house (possible subsidence). Bill called round and took a look. He then advised me that no building work was necessary and advised me on the best course of action. I was very taken by his approach and level of knowledge. As no work had been needed he refused to accept payment for his call and advice. I would not hesitate to call on him again should any building issue arise in the future and will happily pass his details to any friends who might enquire about builders.

Bill Ritchie removed the chimney on our bungalow, which was causing some leakage, and did a great job. He’s an experienced tradesman, and we’ll definitely use him again!

Review Comments
Mr Ritchie gave me two very competitively priced estimates, with one for a repair and the other to rebuild a Juliette ornamental balcony. When the scaffolding was erected, he established that only a repair was required, so the lower estimate. He provided estimates quickly after coming around the day after I contacted him.
There was no mess and the flower bed wasn't damaged.
I am very pleased with the work undertaken.

Replacement of quite a few roof tiles, repair and repainting of attic window frame. The closest I can get to examine the work is by ladder at edge of roof, but all looks good from there and everything seems watertight.

Slate and cement skew repairs to a tenement roof, followed by replacement of a damaged top-floor ceiling with a new plasterboard and skim coat ceiling.

High quality workmanship. Carefully protected the kitchen fittings that were left in the room. No collateral damage to my flat. Cleared up well after an inevitably filthy job.

I'm really pleased with the result and would use WA Ritchie again. Highly recommended.

I needed to have a skylight in my loft replaced with a velux window urgently to enable insulation to be installed. I chose W A Ritchie because of the reviews given to him as a trusted trader. Mr Ritchie and his workmate completed the job within a short time of my request making a superb job and left the loft the cleanest it had ever been. Another roofer working on a neighbour's property was very impressed at how the work was done. I would have no hesitation in using Mr Ritchie again or recommending him to others.

As a business we have had various jobs carried out on our roof and hopper and down pipe. Bill is very reliable and communication is great. Always gives a detailed description of the he has found, what is required along with the cost. No job is too big or small. Very well recommended.

We needed work on our chimney. Harling had been dislodged though storm damage and gradual wear and tear. Bill Ritchie responded to our call quickly. In addition, as he had a gap between jobs, he got the work done quickly and efficiently within 2 weeks. The result was very neat, very difficult to see the difference between the new harling on the chimney and older harling on the wall below.

Roof repairs including fixing leaking valley, replacing broken ridge tiles and repairing pointing and harling.

All the work was carried out to a high standard with the minimum of fuss as per the original quotation.

Kitchen ceiling taken down and reinstated. All relevant areas covered and sealed off to restrict dust. Excellent professional and efficient service. First class communication from start to finish. John and Eric worked flat out and the way they cleaned up afterwards was outstanding. So glad I contracted Bill to carry out the work as WA Ritchie are a credit to the building industry and to Trusted Trader.

My garden wall was in need of attention as it had a distinct wobble. I am glad to say that now that Bill has finished, it feels very stable and secure.
I have every confidence in the work he has done, but I did have difficulty in making contact to find out a likely starting date.
