Really pleased with the work. Having been let down by 4 other roofing companies it was great to deal with professional and reliable roofers.

Dan came over promptly to assess the job. His quote was very competitive and I was happy for him to go ahead with the work. The work (a complete re-roof using exiting tiles where possible) was carried out through the worst of the February and March weather. I found him and the team to be hard-working, professional and conscientious throughout. I found Dan willing to answer all my queries and he regularly came over to inspect the work. I was very happy with the result & would use them again in the future.

Extremely prompt to deliver estimate, very reasonable price, gave excellent advice on the work to be completed. However, it required chasing up to fix a date for the work, and further chasing on the day when contractors were several hours delayed. Still, work was completed quickly and expertly with no unexpected costs and I would recommend their services.

Dan and his team were great to deal with. Good communication throughout the project. Completed a full refurbishment of our roof; we have a Victorian terrace and we wanted something in keeping - maintaining the period features, enhancing the insulation and we had the lead replaced throughout. Price paid as quoted. No nasty surprises despite a slight overrun. We are delighted with the results. As are our neighbours across the road!! Would happily recommend.

Quick contact and visit to quote. Not the cheapest but seemed most reliable and professional. Came when said, and got the job done. Cost was as per estimate. All in all I'd recommend this business.

Hello, I would like to know how much it would be to remove brick cladding from the front of a 2 storey Victoria terrace property. Many thanks

    Hello. You would require a full tube and fitting scaffolding to health & safety standards. A site visit would be required to give any costing.

Do I need a planning permission from the local authority? Do I need to employ a company specialised in dealing with commercial building?

  • Daniel Ranson's Answer

    No planning permission would be required. From what it sound a good dry-lining company would be your best bet who can partition a wall using metal stud rather than timber stud as this would be a cheaper option.
