Hi

We've had rain come in through our roof and we think it may need a few tiles replacing. Can anyone recommend a roofing repair person/company?

thanks

Patrick

I'm sorry to see that no one was able to answer your enquiry, Patrick, as I too am in need of a roofer to patch up a slightly suspect slate roof. Did you find someone good/reliable in the end?

Hi Beanstalk

I don't think I can help you much. We got a guy over who we found in the Yellow Pages but he wanted to charge £210 cash for what was probably less than a day's work, which seemed pretty steep. We're looking to get a family member to do it now!

We are looking to replace our dilapidated & often leaking flat roof covering to the garage this spring/summer. Does anyone know of a reliable professional flat roofer who can also undertake timber repairs to the roof underneath, lead flashing/upstand details, timber fascia renewal and some minor rainwater goods repairs/renewals.

Also looking for someone to rebed the ridge tiles to our main roof.

All recommendations will be gratefully received.

i've just used Al 07932 401488 for a couple of small jobs. He returned my call promptly; came round to look at the job the following day; rang me with a price 2 days later and arrived as planned the following week to do the work. He's done a very thorough job; charged a very sensible price and was thoroughly professional

I would like to add a recommendation for Al on 07932 401488. We needed some urgent work done on our roof as we were having leaks. We received a few quotes which were questionable to say the least!

Thank goodness for this forum. I did a search and found Al's details. He came round that day and gave us a much more realistic quote and performed the work within a week. He then came back twice (without being asked) when it was raining to check that everything was in order. He was an absolute joy to deal with and very professional.

I can recommend Al (see above for details) - I had some tiles replaced earlier this year and he was very thorough.

I'd like to add yet another recommendation for Al ( see above):he was efficient, prompt and friendly, and his rates were better than other quotations we received!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a competent (and honest) roofing contractor? Our flat roof has been leaking like a sieve in the winter downpours so someone with flat-roof expertise would be best.

Sylvester make sure you give big Al a call his local & this is his area of expertise . Make sure you get several other quotes as well to compare.

I dont let anyone else touch our properties now.

Hello,

I can recomend my roofer. His name is Steve Fryer and his number is 07904 800593. He is very reliable. He has done work for my mother in law for years and she used to work with him at a builders merchants.

Tell him the 'young Mrs Stocks' told you to call him.
