  • Replace guttering on 3 terraced houses

    Job was completed quickly but to a mediocre standard for the price paid. Had to request them come back and complete the job, which was over a week later. Quote given was also without VAT, which stung when the invoice was received.

    W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors's reply:

    All our quotes are plus VAT so I’m not sure where confusion comes from. The work which needed finishing, there was a couple of small holes in mortar lines where the old rise and fall brackets had been removed, I phoned to come back as soon as customer made me aware ( only told me when I chased up the payment) got no answer left message, called back and said I could com any time, I came out filled holes in and the front gutter looked twisted because the tiles above front window where pressing down on the gutter because the timber lintel over windows where rotten and I had already pointed this out , I propped the section of tiles up for them free of charge so the gutters sat level, the work was completed to a good standard and everyone was happy with it and nothing was said until I sent second reminder for payment.Cant understand why they are unhappy, good job done and did extra things for free as good will gesture

    William was prompt with his quotations and did not pressurise us any way to get the work done. Once the price was agreed, they carried out the work when agreed, cleared up after themselves and no detail was too much effort for them .
    I would highly recommend William and his team for any of your roofing or flat roof requirements. We will have no hesitation in using them again in the future

    I was amazed how quick he responded to my job on my builder. I Met with Dad who came across warm and friendly.

He said his son and long term colleague would be in touch, even at the weekend. I got a call this morning (Sunday) and they started the job agreed. As promised he phone me when he had nearly finished so I could go and check. They were clearing up and showed me what was in the guttering .

His demure gave me more confidence, compared with other people i had spoken to about the same job.

  • Install a new GRP Flat Roof system over a Bay

    I commissioned W Hartley to install a new GRP Flat Roof over a bay window. I chose the firm because I felt I could trust Mr heartley, and because his stated price was very reasonable.
    On the agreed day the new roof was installed. But upon inspection I concluded that the work is not fit for the purpose. I reported my dissatisfaction to Mr Harlely, and the following day he sent a new team who removed the badly done work and replaced it to my total satisfaction.
    I am please to report that I was not wrong in my assessment of Mr Hartley words.He proved to be a trustworthy and honourable man,a novelty in this money grabbing and shoddy work ethics. I do not hesitate to recommend him.

  • Install guttering and downpipes

    Wouldn't quote, was only willing to match the best quote we got from someone else. Decided to go with him as he had the most feedback. Called a few days later to ask if the job had been done, and he said 'oh, did he (not sure who) not tell you? We can't do the job'.

    W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors's reply:

    We where told he had a price to fit new guttering around commercial property, we matched the quote to do the same as quoted, when we arrived on site the building was a very old warehouse unit asbestos roofs etc, the access was limited and no one knew who the several scrap vehicles belonged to , To fit guttering to this building you needed to install new rise and fall brackets into the brickwork, not the same as screwing a plastic bracket onto timber Fascias as originally quoted for as the other company who quoted stated fitting new Upvc guttering, when we phoned to explain the issue could not speak with customer so had to cancel and apologies for any inconvenience

  • Repair/replace split bargeboard and box end

    William visited my house for a quote almost immediately after I shortlisted him for the job. He and his crew were back the next day and completed the job in 2 days.

  • Guttering problem making damp patch on wall

A rather scary re-tiling job on a rambling old house with lots of odd roofs, they went above and beyond to reassure us. I would recommend this company to anyone.

  • Repair to wooden guttering

    Mr Hartley ,without examining roof using ladder,said he charged £400 per day +vat.2 men completed work in 1 and half hours including tea break yet Mr Hartley needed much persuasion to reduce price to £360 incl vat.
    Materials were a small piece of hardwood and some sealant.I was asked to provide the paint.
    Work itself was done well

  • Fitting lightweight tiling roof to garden room

  • Soffit boards

  • repair guttering

  • Check & insulate roof

    I have not actually used W Hartley, but I did receive a quote from him for insulation.
    He was very punctual and came at the time he said he would.
    Although I did not use him he did seem knowledgeable.

  • Soundproof party wall

    I hired William Hartley to soundproof my bedroom wall.

    Unfortunately after the work was completed, sound came through just as before, so I contacted them to try and see if they would do some further work and finish the work they started. I had paid them cash in hand at a premium price compared to other quotes expecting a premium wall, so I would rather not have further work, but was willing to have it finished.

    I was roundly ignored and dismissed. I was told theres nothing more they could do, and despite 7 emails, 2 voicemails, texts whatsapps etc etc, I am now £1000 down on a wall which has not done the job intended. I had 1 reply to these 7 emails, and it was stating they didnt know what else to do. That was it.

    I have now hired another company who not only offered me a better quote on top of plastering, but have also pointed out thing that William Hartley have done wrong which could make the soundproofing worse than before, such as wood frames touching the sound source, and soundproof boards also touching the source.

    In general, good workmanship, but if you have any problems, don't expect any help.

    This would have been a positive review, and more money would have been in their pocket to do a second round of work, had they responded to my emails and accepted further work, rather than ignoring me and dismissing my questions. Its a shame they missed out on a great review and more money due to bad customer after-care. Wont be using again or recommending.

  • Roof insulation needed in new kitchen

    I had a few messages and based on feedback, I hired William's team.
    Nathan came on the day alone and got on with the job. He was a little bit late collecting materials but I had a call updating me. I was dreading spending additional money over Christmas but it was something that needed doing.
    Nathan did a good job and unearthed some poor workmanship from the original builders. It was all put right and now I've not no draft problem.
    Would recommend to anyone.

I would most definitely use them again.

  • repair flatroof and fix leaks

  • Quote: replace Fascias, Soffits & Guttering - 3 bed hse

    I had hired William's firm based on his competitive quote, the extra 50 years guarantee from the manufacturers and that he was confident in being able to do an extra bespoke work linked to it. Whilst I was not able to present for the majority of the work, I have been told by my family that they had been polite and kept mess to a minimum. They had also kept us updated on the progress whilst they were working. Though, instead of finishing within two days, they had to work an extra third day to get the job complete. I was not concerned by this as I preferred that they take their time in doing a good and proper job rather than rushing it.

    I always hold back from leaving feedback straightaway to review the work and especially with gutters as I wanted to survey the whole thing when it rained. As it turns out, there was a leak from a joint and when I had informed William of this, they had pop round within that same week and recified the problem.

    All-in-all, I am quite happy with the work and the exterior of the house now looks updated and with confidence that the new materials will last (hopefully) beyond my lifetime.

    We're print and quick. They went above and beyond.

  • Install heavy-duty guttering front and back of house

    Very satisfied. Great service, good, fast work. Friendly, polite guy from Durham (never did catch his name) - he even let me borrow his saw to do some work in my garden while he was doing replacing my gutters! I highly recommend these guys and will use them again myself.

  • Remove old shed and build new one

    They not only removed my old shed and built a new one but replaced my roof on my house. They worked hard to get the job done as quickly as possible, were very friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend.

  • Replace garage roof

    Excellent job, the lads were top grafters and very friendly.
    Great couple of days and garage roof is superb.

  • Repairs to guttering and fascia

    Came promptly and did a thorough job. Front of house much improved. Can recommend.

  • Need to have fascia, soffit and guttering replaced

  • Concrete levelling

    I needed my garage concrete floor to be leveled and a wooden box section to be repaired.
    William replied to the job quickly, sent someone to have a look the next day and sent a quote very quickly.
    I found it quite expensive but was keen on having this done by skilled professionals to ensure a very flat surface which was very important, and they were free to do the job very quickly which was a plus.

    They did a good job on the boxed section but I'm very disappointed with the floor. It took more than two weeks to fully set ( I was told it would be hard enough to walk on after 2-3 days but it wasn't at all ) and the top layer of the material looks unevenly mixed. And the biggest issue is that it's anything but level, there are dips and bumps of more than 7mm so I'm now left with a problem despite having paid good money.

    W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors's reply:

    Because the floor was so out of level we had to do it in two stages because it was 50mm on the edge down to 0mm in the centre because the customer only wanted half the floor done, because of the thickness in areas it took a while to dry fully and because in the centre in went to 0mm thick the colouring was different over the floor which was getting painted with thick floor paint so the colour was nothing, as for it been up and down this was because in the middle where we had to blend the floor to the old floor that was uneven , the customer never phoned and asked about it been uneven and never complained to me we told him about the colouring and that was fine because it was been painted

  • gutter cleaning

    Good communication, came on time, fair price, I would recommend. Thank you.

  • New Cladding

    I hired William and Keith from W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors to replace an old cladding and left it far worse of than originally found. This contractor has done a very poor job below my satisfaction and is adamant that he will not do the job properly not unless he gets more money despite a 10 year guarantee. When the scaffolding came down I noticed the cladding had not been fixed properly. The material used was cheap and retaining air hence the bubbles. We’ve had few conversations and called them back to re-assess the finished work and at that point blamed the error on a frame underneath the membrane as not being straight. William further claims it was not their responsibility to fix the frame as not stated in the quote. Yet this was never highlighted as been an issue when they were doing the job in the first place otherwise we could have agreed on a solution to ensure the cladding was done properly. Surely a competent builder would highlight if there’s an issue that would prevent the job been done properly? The contractor gave me assurance they had done cladding jobs before & listed on checkatrade hence I commissioned him. My experience with this builder has been terrible & not willing to cooperate to fix the issue or take responsibility for the poor job. This has left me with no option but to consider legal proceeding to claim the money lost. I would never recommend him. Don't trust this man and think again when hiring them. A total cowboy builder: stay away from them

    W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors's reply:

    First off, the customers constant calls about the price saw me reduce it twice for her before we even started. You know the type ,wants the best of everything for as little as possible. We did the job we agreed on using the materials that the customer agreed(didn't want to pay for better shiplap cladding)we fitted the interlocking soffit boards into the starter trims and Screwed them at every joist possible. Told customer that the wooden joist frame work wasn't straight so where the soffit boards are screwed to them it makes the soffits follow the line of the joist. The customer then wanted us to put new joist framework in for free, we said we would do the extra work but it would be more money as this was not mentioned in quotation.

  • Waterproofing roof

    Very happy with job. William and Keith were very prompt to come out and give a quote and fit my job in within a day or two. Price was competitive and final cost was as quoted.
    Overall, good and honest bunch of lads who I would definitely hire again.

  • Replace Garage Roof 15ft by 10ft

  • Localised repair to flat roof/soil pipe weathering

  • Roof repair Valley near Dorma window

    Excellent service. I needed a roof repair after storm damage had caused a leak near my back dorma window. The roofers turned up and provided a written quote and photographs within 10 minutes of leaving. Once the insurance had cleared the claim, Willie Hartley kept in regular contact and arranged a date when they were next available. They turned up and completed the work on the day we had agreed. They worked solidly with only a 15 minute dinner break until the job was completed and fixed some extra tiles too which had come loose at the front of the house while they were there. Really impressed with their professionalism, reliability and work ethic! I would highly recommend them to friends and family and use them for future works on the roof.

  • Shorten brick chimney

    Very happy with the service provide. Communication was excellent throughout the process. Job was completed quickly for a very good price. Will be contacting W Hartley again if I need any work doing in the future.

  • Various Buy to Let work in Scarborough

    We had three roofs that needed tiles replacing plus a flat roof to be fixed. William did not come himself but sent 2 of his guys to Scarborough. Even though it was in the quote, they didn't use scaffolding or any safety equipment, which was very worrying. We thought we had the right tiles for one roof, but they didn't check them as they didn't visit for an estimate, this caused a bit of friction on their part. When it came to the flat roof, we expressed dissatisfaction about the sealant, which was really not taken at all well. The sealant was uneven and does not even touch both surfaces. One section of sealant was missing altogether. At this point they asked for payment, but we kept £200 back until they did the rest of the job. I had many angry phone calls accusing me of a lack of trust and not recognising how good a job they had done. They returned when we sourced the tiles and replaced the tiles and filled in the missing sealant. They refused to accept our complaint about the uneven sealant. They insisted on the remaining £200 in cash. Possibly they have an issue with women customers looking back at previous negative feedback.

    W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors's reply:

    We used a cat ladder to do the work on the ridges as this was safe enough for the job,we where trying to keep the cost down for customer.The tiles that are mentioned, I agreed to fit them free, when she gave me the tiles they where the wrong ones,I tried to get some but couldn't.when she got the correct tiles I fitted them for free.The only complaint about the work on the three properties was that the work on her own house had uneven sealant, where the white cladding under the porch meets the house wall which is different size and shape stones, so the soffits had to be cut round the shapes of the stones which was a neat job, the sealant followed the line of the stones,I feel a bad review because you think the sealant was uneven is pathetic

  • Cladding and roofing 3 storey house

  • Leaking roof

    It was boxing day 2015 there was water coming in from the roof and water attempting to breach through the front door. I thought I'd never get hold of a roofer, never mind one willing to work in the river that was once my garden. But W Hartley Ltd Roofing Contractors arrived, waded across the drive, set up the ladders and spent boxing day afternoon patching up the flat roof. On the first available date they returned to complete the job. They did an excellent job, I would happily recommend them and am grateful for their willingness to work on the Bank Holiday.

  • Re-roof small flat roof

    W Hartley Ltd have excellent communication and have been very prompt in replying about, and attending, the job. They have a very professional approach, and went beyond the job to recommend further critical work that needed doing on other areas of the house.
    The team are very polite and efficient and took a pro-active approach in fixing our roof while we were away for the Christmas holidays (when the weather was very wet) and took the opportunity to do the work on the one dry day; this was very much appreciated.

    I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.

  • repair/replace felt roof on detached garage

    I never leave feedback until a bit of time has passed since the job has been completed to make sure everything is fine, so here we go.

    Garage roof started to leak so posted the job on My Builder, 3 responses Keith from W Hartley Ltd came round the same day told me the roof felt needed to be replaced and quoted for a GRP fibreglass roof. No waffle knew exactly what had to be done and identified the problem and cause. The next company turned up and failed to quote and the final one just did not turn up, then asked for another try came around, quoted but not happy with explanation as to how the job would be done so W Hartley Ltd got the job. Great communication, Willie was in contact a number of times to keep me updated about start dates due to weather. The whole job was completed in 2 days, on time and looks great, Keith also sorted out a problem with the downpipe at the back of the house as a bonus, thanks again for that. The site was cleared of all debris and left tidy. So marks out of 10 well it has to be a full 10 for professionalism work ethics, quality of the job and tidiness. 6 Months down the line and a very happy customer.

    Yes I would use W Hartley Ltd again without hesitation and highly recommend their service.

  • flat roof repair or replacement

    No nonsense approach Keith identified source of leak on my extension flat
    roof. He repaired that part of the roof. I am impressed by the attitude and
    professionalism of these two lads primarily by giving me options as opposed
    to giving me the 'hard-sell' of replacing the whole roof. A job well
    done..would highly recommend to anyone. Reasonable in price too.

  • Replace felt roof on garage

    William came around very quickly to quote for the job of replacing garage roof, which has been done to a high standard. He also put in the floor boards in my loft as an added no charge extra, which was great. He did charge extra for removal of old roof to tip but this was still reasonably priced.
    Thanks Amy and rhys

  • Fibreglass roof extension

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Remove asbestos roof, fitted GRP roofing system and UPVC fascia's and guttering. Standard of work was very good, roof looks great. However initial price quoted did not include price for fascia's, then while carrying out the work he explained I needed the fascia's replacing. I would of appreciated it if this was brought up on initial quote. As ended up having to an additional fee to then get this replaced.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    The work was to recover a flat roof on our extension and one on a dormer window using GRP and to add dry verge caps. I thought the team were really good. They explained what they were going to do, when they would turn up, how long it would take and how much it would cost and made good on what they said. They were friendly, got the job done and cleaned up when they were finished. The GRP looks great as do the roof caps. I would not hesitate to recommend.
