Check roof for possible small leak & quote to fix

West Dulwich 

Caleb was truly amazing and a credit to his profession! He came along to quote for my job, and I learned that recently a van had driven into his own house making it uninhabitable, the insurance company was dragging things out so he couldn't yet get repairs started, and his wife and two young children were having to live in temporary accommodation many miles away, leaving Caleb living on his own in a hotel for weeks on end.
A relative of his was also in hospital dying from Cancer.
Despite all of this havoc in his personal life Caleb was kind, helpful, pleasant and completely efficient - turning up exactly at the time agreed, giving a completely honest assessment of the roof work needed (he could have said anything and I wouldn't have known the difference!) and returning to complete the work at the agreed time and to the quoted price.
He was very knowledgeable about the work needed to fix the problem, and sure enough after the work was done the leak was cured.
Not only that, but he came back a few weeks later to fill a small hole he'd spotted in the roof which was allowing wasps to access my loft and build a nest. This was completely unrelated to the work he'd done previously, and for no charge - just to help me out, and because he's a kind generous person.
This is truly a very rare tradesmen, and we need to reward and encourage more of this type of professionalism !!

OK so the cat isn't directly related to the roof repair, but let's face it - it's difficult to make a photo of a roof look interesting! :-)
