  • Roof repairs

    10Verified Review

    CEP came to our rescue when we had a roof leak, which became apparent in March this year. They initially secured the source of the leak and then quickly returned to undertake the full repair which involved replacing a lead valley between us and our neighbours. Without exception Chris and his team worked really hard, they were punctual, tidy, friendly, courteous and respectful. This happened just as we were selling our house, and Chris ensured that the repairs did not affect the progress of the sale at all. We will be forever grateful.

Work was completed on target and left extremely clean. 100% recommend CEP Building and Construction.

    Chris was very reliable and the standard of the work was excellent. He helped me navigate planning and sorted building consent. He was encouraging when I was feeling pessimistic and I would unquestionably recommend him. His firm also did work on my new house which is a 1930s property. While the work was less complicated, again he arranged the plasterer, painters and decorators and sorted the electrics.

    Excellent, would definitely use Chris and his team again. The plastering was a sight to behold! Very clean and tidy builders, put up temporary walls to stop dust and got through the work quickly. We did add on as the job went along which was no problem for Chris.
