Balcony roof and surrounding woodwork

The work was very professional and diligent. I was impressed that even the patio floor was swept clean afterwards. There was some delay due to wet weather, but this is to be expected in the Autumn.

Fitting of 2new velux skylights and replacement of old Velux skylight

Verified Review

Scaffolding up one day, 3no velux skylights installed in two days. No making good to do as part of a larger bathroom and hallway refurbishment. This team clearly knew what they were doing and the velux windows are installed professionally. Outside and in they look well installed. Great to have the piece of mind they have been installed by a professional outfit who are also on Velux’s approved list.

Flat roof 50sqm - Warm roof 120mm Insulation, 3 Layer Felt, new Sky light fitted.

Verified Review

Pros: Work was organised well, they came and went when they said. Darren did the felting, he was very experienced and appears to have done a very good neat job. Simon was also very good. Remember no matter how much you pay, the work is only as good at the people doing the work. Cons: Initial Survey could have been done better, as I ended up paying 1/3 more of than the original quoted price. If the surveyor had climbed on to the roof and surveyed properly it would have helped the nasty surprises.

Reply from Chris Ball & Son Roofing Ltd

Dear Sir Thank you very much for your kind comments. We would like to explain that on our initial survey it is virtually impossible to assess the condition of boarding underneath a flat roof until the existing membranes are removed , when you roof was exposed it became evident there was defects with the structural deck which needed to be addressed We always ensure we deliver only the finest work therefore it was necessary for your timber deck to be replaced Please be assured you now have a fantastic roof which will provide decades of service

Lead work to roof

Verified Review

A great roofing company to work with. I am a builder and I have found the work they produce always to be of a high standard. They are a regular sub-contractor when I have roof relating works etc.

Leaking roof repair, New verge trims fitted and refitting slates

Verified Review

Fabulous work and time keeping! From initial contact I was very impressed with the speed at which they sent their estimator to visit and advise. The soffits were rotting due to water getting in somewhere and after being told that the problem was with the 'Verges' and that they all needed a GRP trim fitting, local slates removed and re-fitted. Very impressed with the speed and quality fo workmanship. Peace of mind in dealing with such an efficient company and solving the problem.

We used Chris Ball a few years ago at another house, for more substantial work. It's good to know that their high standards continue today. An excellent team, and excellent work. Well done.
