Complete roof replacement

Verified Review

Exceptional in every way. 2nd time I have used G J Smith and again they exceeded my expectations. From the initial visit to completion of the work. Just fantastic in every way. From the first engagement, I was kept informed and the expectations set were met if not exceeded. From the office team to the folk that carried out the actual work. Just thank you. Highly professional company. Do not overlook this company..they deliver/exceeded which was all we asked for. They acted more like family than a company we contracted. Outstanding business. I don't say that often.

Work carried out was satisfactory. BUT they demanded payment before they removed scaffolding! What arrogance! I would not employ them again

Reply from G J Smith Roofing

Dear Customer, thank you for your feedback, I am very shocked to see this as I spoke with your partner when she called to make payment and she did not bring this to my attention at the time. She explained how happy she was with our team, therefore this comes as a surprise. It is our company policy to off hire scaffolding once payment has been received. We ask for no deposit or payment prior to the works starting, however once the works are completed we ask for payment on receipt of the invoice. This allows us to then settle the scaffolding hire. I have to disagree with your statement that G J Smith Roofing are 'arrogant' and we did not 'demand' payment, your wife called us up to settle the invoice and she did not mention anything about the scaffolding other than asking when it would be removed. The scaffolding was then removed from your property two working days after your works were completed. As we have carried out works for you on a number of occasions and you have been happy with our workmanship, I am very sorry to hear you will not use us again.

All new gutter works, with felt trays

They were very informative on what they were doing at each stage - and cleaned mess afterwards. I would recommend them and they were excellent from start to finish.
