Feedback for Wy & Ty Roofing

Verdict, unproven as competent roof repair trader, does not demonstrate competences for the task. Work when reportedly 'finished' was not fit for purpose, workmanship evidenced incompetence in carpentry, application of fibreglass and related materials. Roof failed with first rain; cascading water from garage roof and link wall, saturating rafters, garage and covered area bridging between garage and main property. Not evident consideration / compensation was made for having removed a guttering.
Additional factors contributing to roof failure; screws through roofing into and through rafters; poor or inadequate sealant of fabrics, rubbers not bonded; failure to create diversion for water flow off the roof other than hole through a brick.
Proposed two day job became 7, inconsistent attendance (although only rained off one day); poor time-keeping; poor forward management in acquiring materials for the task, no apparent commitment to or communication with householder. Reportedly has evidence of skills, personal insurance and details of 25 year guarantor backing workmanship but failed to produce these.
