Leak Fascias, Soffits & Guttering
Ben was great, couldn't have asked for a better person to come and fix our problem.
We had a leak and he instantly knew what the problem was (it was to do with the roof) and a couple of days later he came round and did a brilliant job.
It really helped that he was genuinely lovely, it does make a difference!
I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Removing Chimney in Bathroom Roofing
Ben and his team did a fantastic job under difficult circumstances. They even went the extra mile to fix a few other loose items. I would recommend them again.

fibre glass 2 small balconies Roofing
Mr Donaldson cancelled the job he had agreed 3 times with different excuses:
1-van broken and had to buy a new van
2-forgot phone in a cab the night before job was due to start after a night out having drinks with his mates- job was due to start at 9am and he contacted me at 1530pm to cancel the job
3- one of his workers was not available fro job- cancelled job in the morning job was due to start
Mr Donaldson always informed me at the last minute and wasted lots of my times. Very UNPROFESSIONAL- DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HIM

Leak in roof (not major) Roofing
This was the third time we've used Ben - previous word undertaken has proven to be very well executed.
Very reliable, very communicative, very prompt and very reasonable cost-wise. I really appreciate the fact he takes "before and after" photos of what he has done, as given where it is, you'd never know otherwise.
Will not hesitate to use again.

leak from flat roof or guttering Roofing
Ben did a great job replacing my leaking old flat roof (fibreglass, replacing 25 year old felt), and managed to do it on time despite a tricky week of up and down weather. The finished job looks really smart, and there was no mess left behind. I'm a happy customer and would recommend Ben to others any time.

Ben did a brilliant job in fixing and replacing a leaking piece of guttering. He was good at communictating and kept me up-to-date the whole time.
(Phoned when he said he would etc.) He even replaced a broken part of roof ridging, while fixing the gutter. I will definitely use him again.

Flat roof quote. Roofing
We have a 100% flat roof on our house built in the 60's, totalling about 60 sq meters with a lightbox over the bathroom. The roofing felt was old and utterly shot and needed to be replaced. Ben came round very promptly got up on our roof to take photos and inspect the area. He explained the options available to us, gave his recommendations and then provided a fair and detailed quote for the work involved.
Ben and his labourers showed up promptly on the day we discussed and he laid out what he would be doing and when. We agreed a rough schedule of work for the following days and I left him to it. The team worked solidly and tirelessly to get the job finished to a high standard and ben was quick to get back to me if I had any questions.
Ben did a great job to a high standard for a very reasonable price. I would recommend him to everyone and hope to employ him on other jobs as his business expands into other building trades.

Ben did an excellent job - he was polite, knowledgeable, very patient and friendly - and kept us up to date at every stage of the process.
He also took photos to show us exactly what had been done - and suggested a solution to a related roofing problem which should save us lots of money in the long run.
I would thoroughly recommend Ben to anyone needing a roofing specialist!

urgent-Leaking gutter Roofing
My gutter was blocked and when it rained water was flowing down the side of the building. Ben clean out my gutter and also fitted mesh over the gutter to stop leaves blocking the gutter in future. He kept me informed of what needed doing and what he had done. I was very pleased with his work.
Thank you Ben.

Garage - flat roof and wood replacement/ repair Garages & Sheds
Ben renewed my garage roof mid June 2011. I chose a fibreglass roof solution which in the weeks since has kept my garage entirely dry. Ben also replaced the fascia and guttering and this has coped well in the wet weather we have had.
Ben was knowledgeable about his range of products and provided detailed written quotes for all proposed work. He and his colleague turned up when they said they would which was great. I would recommend him to other people.

Cleaning gutters Roofing
Quick and efficient. Cleaned the gutters and disposed of the rubbish. Was able to give us a quote for future work that he will be undertaking.
a_jones_18 - 11th Jan, 2011 Positive feedback
Ben is a trustworthy guy who did a great job. He was very clear about what need doing, and what didn't. He came up with a good price, and timetable for the work. Despite gale force winds, heavy rain and freezing cold, he still managed to finish the work quickly, and worked through his birthday to do so. He also did a couple of extra jobs (repointing and taking down a for sale sign) without hesitation and at no extra charge. Thanks, Ben!

Ben was very dilligent and is clearly as honest roofer. He replaced a number of tiles very quickly that were leaking and causing a real problem in a bedroom.

guttering replacement Roofing
Thank you Ben... You did a great job on my guttering. I was grateful for your good time keeping, clean work, professional delivery of goods and service, excellent clean up and friendly approach. I would thorughly recommend you.
time_2_improve - 23rd Oct, 2010 Positive feedback
Ben turned up very promptly at the agreed time to initially examine the roof, explained what the problem was in a way that I could understand and gave a very reasonable written quote in good time.
Having "booked" him for the following week he again turned up exactly on time, and did a great job very cleanly. He respected my home (took his shoes off every time he went up and down the stairs without being asked) and was very polite and friendly. His work comes guaranteed and he was at great pains to emphasise before he left that if there were any problems to call him and he would come back, no charge.
Reliable and with integrity, he even spotted something with the guttering and pointing that could become a future problem and fixed it at no extra cost. After the last joker we had in, who had the most extensive line in excuses I have ever heard, I cannot recommend Ben highly enough. Hire him.

Ben was very punctual, advised me of the correct works required to fix the problem (much smaller job than I originally anticipated) and completed the work on time to budget. He was very helpful, easily contactable and I would hire him again in the future.
helenmc - 7th Oct, 2010 Positive feedback
Ben turned up when he said he would to assess the job, got back to me really quickly with a quote and turned up when he said he would to do the job. He was reliable and honest and the price was very reasonable. Would definitely use Ben again and will keep his details and recommend him if anyone I know in my area needs a competent and efficient roofer.

guttering and leak repair Roofing
Ben has been completely professional and we are delighted with his work. When we realised the extent of the problem with our leaking roof, Ben was very clear about the options available to us. We had no difficulty in arranging a fee which we were both happy with. He reliably turned up when he said he would, and kept in touch on the phone so we knew exactly what was going on. Very pleased!
