Honest and reliable, arrived on time to quote and carried out the work we needed a week later. We was informed about everything throughout the job which we like and everything was left clean and tidy upon completion. We Would definitely recommend them. Its hard to find clean, honest and reliable tradesmen in this area so we are so happy we went ahead with Gary.

New Dormer Flat Roof replaced

Verified Review

Great job from Gary from start to finish. Turned up to view as agreed and gave advise on which types of new roof to have installed. Emailed promptly new quotes and once accepted came round and made sure the roof was water tight until he came back the next week to do the job. The old flat roof was removed and cleared away, new flat roof done, everything left clean and tidy. Most impressed with the Ariel pictures of our new roof by drone, which he emailed with our invoice. Will definitely use Gary again and definitely recommend him to everyone else.

We have used GB Roofing before and were very impressed with the workmanship, tidyness and overall service provided, which is why we had no hesitation in using them again for this work.
