Company Profile

Founded in 1965, we are a family owned roofing company, specialising in domestic roofing works including renewal and repairs such as slating, tiling, asphalt, felt, single ply fleece backed EPDM system, UPvC guttering, fascias, insulation, chimney repairs, moss cleaning and other roof level maintenance.

In addition to the above we carry out small building works and can advise with regard to the installation of Solar Photovoltaic systems.

As members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors we are accredited Competent Roofers, self certifying our works alleviating the need for our clients to undertake the task of notifying the Local Authority Building Control when renewing roof coverings, saving both time and money.

The Local Authority will be forwarded the necessary documentation on behalf of the client and Building Regulation Completion Certificates are forwarded to the client on completion of the project with a 10 year insurance backed guarantee.

In addition to the above we are Trustmark approved a Government endorsed standards agency and all repair works are guaranteed for a minimum 12 month period.

Please note it is now also compulsory to upgrade the insulating qualities when renewing more than 50% of the roof to conform to current building regulations.

If your needs are a single tile or a complete re-roof, we will be pleased to offer the best solution.

Partial re-roof.
Very pleased indeed with work. Weather was pretty horrible, but they worked through it. The work took 6 days with a sensible number of men working on it at any one time. On the first day a larger crew arrived and stripped the roof of old tiles, laid new membrane and battened down and I was water-tight from the outset. The scaffolding company were very quick and efficient too. Thank you to all.

Repair to gully between terraced house, replacement work undertaken.
I would happily provide a reference for this company anytime, their help and assistance with a difficulty with a neighbour was both efficient and considerate. From the assessor to the lovely lady on the other end of the office phone, they were helpful, informative and supportive. The workmen that came to do the repair were efficient, quick, kept me aware of what they were doing and the extra work that was needed, even to taking a picture to show what they were describing and went out of their way to complete the work in one day. Work guaranteed and a new relationship with a great firm. Thanks.
