New roof

Verified Review

1st Choice replaced the roof on our house and did our neighbours at the same time. Richard turned up to quote when he said he would, started the job when he said he would and kept us well informed throughout. Richard and his team worked hard, including keeping the house dry through unexpected inclement weather, tidied up at the end of every day and had the job done to a high standard. The entire service was professional and hassle free, the team were polite and courteous. Would recommend 10/10

Refurbishment of defective flat bay roof.

Excellent. Refurbishment carried out quickly and efficiently to rectify work previously carried out in Nov 22 by a approved Checkatrade roofer. Would recommend 1st Choice to anyone.

Roof replacement

Verified Review

Andy and his team worked on our roof replacement, they were very efficient and professional. Andy took photos at every stage to show us what he had done, I am very impressed with their work. Even my neighbours have commented how nice the roof looks and hard they worked on it. If I need any future jobs doing I will definitely be calling 1st Choice. I will also be strongly recommending them to others.

Really impressed with this company. These guys are excellent workers. Calvin was there at the crack of dawn ready to start every day regardless of weather. The work was completed and passed inspection with flying colours. Thank you Richard.
