    This small company worked very well together as a team, they were punctual and very polite making sure we were informed at every stage. They never wasted a single minute and were extremely tidy. The job was done within 4 days which was more speedy than expected. The pricing was fair and reasonable. Would not hesitate to heartily recommend this roofing business.

  • Replace roof

    10Verified Review

    Our neighbours roof was related by JJ Brophy a couple of years ago and they are very pleased with the result so I decided to contract JJ Brophy to do the work. Despite setbacks due to the weather the work was completed efficiently and tidily. I would happily recommend them if asked.

  • New roof and chimney renovation

    10Verified Review

    WONDERFUL!! I cannot say enough good things about Justin and team. Job started and finished exactly when he said he would, even though he started in March 2024 when we had so much rain - he kept to his word. Justin went above and beyond with touching up paint work in hard to reach areas whilst the scaffolding was up. He asked before replacing items, ie collapsed guttering when removing the old roof. The extra work was at a reasonable cost. I was pleased he did not leave anything that needed sorting. Great communication throughout and was always on time. Would highly recommend.

  • Excellent Parapet Roof Repair

    10Verified Review

    We needed work done on our parapet roof that was causing a leak, particularly with all the awful weather we had in the autumn. The team came over and we're polite and got on with the job! We also had a flat roof repair which also saved a leak in the garage, and after they left we spotted that they had also filled in a crack that was appearing under our window! The work was really well done and looks good. We were given a really reasonable quote and communication was great over email. Would recommend!
