W&S Christie have carried out our tenement's annual roof inspection for a number of years now. They are extremely pleasant, come when they say they will come and always do an excellent job. We will be using them next year as usual.

Christie's have just completed extensive work at my home, fully replacing the flat roof and carrying out repairs to chimney, guttering and downpipe. They also arranged and co-ordinated rebuilding of the cupula.

My experience of the company was very positive throughout the process: their communication has been really excellent and I have found them reliable, responsive, friendly and thoroughly professional. The guys who did the work were great and made sure everything was tidied up and watertight at the end of each day. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian and his team at Christie's.

I ended up needing a totally new roof, Ian at W&S Christie was clear on the breakdown of costings, work required and timescales. It was a huge juggling act in terms of managing different trades people, and i never had any issues with the entire process.

Review Comments
We had a complete and large replacement of the roof of the tenement block. It was a tough job, as the roof was failing in many places. It required all residents to buy in to the project and planning permission, as it was a listed building. However, W&S Christie were so good at communicating that it really smothered the process over, with them even occasionally attending residents meetings if required to explain technicalities. The standard of the work was inspected by our own independent surveyor and photos were taken throughout. The resulting job was excellent. The quality of the work was top standard and the workmen on the job were professional and friendly. They cleared up brilliantly when the job was finished. A special mention to the lead worker, who is clearly an expert in his job. I can't recommend this company highly enough.

I have used Christies in the past but have never had to undertake such a big job before (complete roof replacement of communal tenement, 100k+ job) Christies were trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable and professional from start to finish.

They caused minimal disruption given the scale of the work, communication was excellent and their team were attentive at all times. I also appreciate the time they spent with us prior to being awarded the contract, offering advice and insight at an early stage. Their help in facilitating the process generally was very much appreciated as it's not an easy task in a communal block.

The standard of work was exceptional and the comprehensive guarantee provided on both materials and the work undertaken was as one would expect when investing in a complete roof replacement. Even the independent surveyor we appointed to oversee the project and sign off the job at various stages commented that he thought the work they had undertaken was of an exceptional standard and that he would be recommending them to other clients moving forwards.

Their quote was not the cheapest received (certainly not the highest either) however they did assist in finding some additional cost savings during the work. When comparing the detail of each quote like for like and given the level of service and quality of work, they were undoubtedly the best value option for us.

From planning to completion W&S Christie were exceptionally helpful and professional going beyond all other companies who quoted for a roof and chimney refurbishment. Contact with all members of staff involved precipitated immediate results. Thank you for assisting, it was a pleasure to do business with you.

Our priority was to identify a company we felt we could trust to do a quality job. We had heard good things about Christies from friends and we checked out their website which we found informative. From the first contact we found the whole team responsive and professional in approach, and we are delighted with our new roof. Work was completed on time at the agreed price and we feel we have found a company who will be our first choice for any future roofing needs.

With regard to a Communal roof repair on Bryson Road; I especially appreciated that they have made the process as seamless as possible, with minimal disruption. All questions were answered, they had sound knowledge of the most appropriate products and helped to facilitate collecting funds from individual flat owners.

I am happy to endorse this Company for a job well done.

I have used the services of Christies to look after my roof for a number of years now and found them to provide good value for money and a friendly, helpful and reliable service. Their tradesmen are knowledgeable and professional and I have no concerns about them working on my property. Work has always stuck to budget and been completed to my satisfaction.
Liz in the office was always friendly and helpful.

From the start to the finish of the work carried out, we could not fault Christie Roofing. Throughout the re-roofing work we were kept fully informed with progress of the repairs, updated on any additional works required, additional costs and the team worked efficiently. Thank you for all that you have done to give our roof a new lease of life!

We have found W & S Christie Roofing experienced and knowledgeable on roofing works and competitive on costs. They have been quick to respond and efficient in the work they have done for us both commercially in respect of maintenance work they have done on our own office and domestically in respect of maintenance work done on a shared tenement in Edinburgh. They have also responded well and promptly in follow ups, provided considered advice and been rigorous in tracking down and pursuing illusive leaks. We have no hesitation in recommending them.

The first time I asked them to carry out work for me was last year, when I was experiencing damp from a flat roof. I was very pleased with the work they carried out on that occasion. Therefore, when again I had a similar problem, this time from another flat roof over my utility room, they were the chaps to tackle the problem. A new hopper head and down spout was fitted to take the water away. They made a very good looking job with brown coloured pipe work, which I asked for.
Two days later we experienced torrential rain which lasted all day - no damp has shown on ceiling - success, well done!
Thank you for the good work carried out by the friendly, skilled work men.
It means a lot to know a firm one can trust and rely on.

I would like to write a short note to say how impressed I have been, not only with work undertaken by W&S Christie but also the manor in which they have interacted with me. The job was to re-gutter my entire house and I could not be happier with the job done. Competitive price, done when I was told it would be done. They even came back to fix something a different tradesman had broken. Would definitely recommend.
