Some 14 years ago we called upon Able Roofing as several traders had failed to find the problem of a leaking roof. Malcolm came, went up to inspect, took pictures, and said he could “fix the leak” but he “needed to fix the roof”. The work was very successfully carried out. Since that time Malcolm and his son Paul have come for any repairs to the roof, but have also replaced 3 garden roof buildings with metal sheets, again successfully. They will always give cheerful advice on any other aspects of work needed, which has been the case with the garden sheds. The advice is based on solid knowledge and expertise from their years of roofing work, and is very welcome. Never forgotten that time when he “needed to fix the roof”. This is a pleasant, trustworthy company, and their trade mark is well deserved.

Asbestos workshop roof replacement

My asbestos cement flat roof on my garden workshop was showing signs of age, so a flyer from a national company goaded me to seek an estimate for replacement. Having priced up the materials myself and with a ball park figure in my head, I was gobsmacked at the first estimate received and sought a local company that could provide the same service. Had never used Able Roofing before but their portfolio impressed me enough to make enquiries. Within a day Paul came round to measured up and an estimate soon followed. With the cost within my budget, the wheels were set in motion. Malcolm co-ordinated the job with sub-contractors removing the old asbestos sheets and leaving, ready for Malcolm and Paul to install my new roof. There was a small amount of additional work required but nothing but praise for Malcolm and Paul, with communication throughout the job, attention to detail and tidiness, I was well pleased with the finish result and would certainly recommend them to anyone. Would make them my first port of call next time.

Following some incorrectly fitted velux's which was leaking water into the house, Malcolm and Paul reviewed directly with Velux and gave us a number of options to resolve the problem, this resulted in replacing the existing windows. The turn around time was excellent as with the attention to detail. Work throughout was clean and precise and no remedial work required by us after the fit. Would fully recommend them to anyone in a similar position.

Malcolm and son came to fit a new window and completed the job very well. They also cleaned the gutter and fixed some tiles which was not in the quote for free which we are very thankful for. They were very polite and cleaned up after themselves which was an added bonus.

New Velux Loft Room Window

Having tried to get my old and faulty Velux window replaced for several months; being quoted ridiculous prices and being let down by fitters I am so happy that we ended up getting the work done with Able Felt Roofing. I could not recommend Malcolm and his son Paul enough. They are professional, efficient and tidy. We had to wait a little while for them to become available due to poor weather but they were always honest and realistic with their communications with my partner. I had several valuable items in the room which they protected with dust sheets and left the room in a good condition when they left. I noticed that Paul held the hoover nozzle up to catch dust as he was trimming plaster work which struck me as particularly professional. The window looks great and has been fitted perfectly. Very happy!

Interior finishing work due to smaller size replaced Velux windows

I initially met Malcolm a year ago as he is a Velux recommended installer. We had problems with our existing windows in two rooms and he came promptly to look and gave me some very helpful advice and suggestions regarding replacement windows. As we needed a specialist roofing material on our modern extension roof, Malcolm fairly suggested that the roofing company we had chosen would be more than capable of installing the new windows for us. After the roof and windows were replaced, I called Malcolm to see what he could suggest to finish off internally. Once again he had some helpful suggestions and a couple of days later, his son, Paul, came to complete the job in our loft bedroom. He has done a superb job, with great attention to detail. The surround he has constructed looks as though it is part of the new window frame, when there had been quite a large gap all around, due to the smaller size of the new windows. We also needed the work completed as quickly as possible as we were unable to use the room, due to wind and debris coming through the gap leaving us open to the roof space. As well as being extremely competent in their work, both Malcolm and Paul are extremely considerate and kind. They took account of our situation (they needed to wear masks due to my husband's ill health) and were helpful and patient. They certainly inspire trust and have been excellent throughout.

New soffits, fascias and guttering

Our leaky guttering badly needed replacing, all work carried out by Paul and Malcolm was carried out in a professional manner with the least amount of disruption and they always tidied up at the end of the day. Once the work started it soon became obvious that the guttering, soffits and fascias were in a poor state of repair and required more extensive work, this was carried out by Paul, it was challenging at times but was dealt with skilfully and looks amazing, we are so pleased with the end result, it really does look good. We wouldn’t hesitate to 100% recommend Malcolm and Paul and will defiantly be using them again.

Re-felt of shed roof

Mother nature aka sun and rain had caused extensive deterioration of an 8'x 6' garden shed roof. Having used Able roofing in the past it was time to consult Malcolm once again. He attended quickly to assess the problem and provided a written estimate within the day. The shed roof was repaired within a week by Paul, Malcolm's son. A little bit of timber replacement was required and new gutters fitted and the job was completed in a day. A first class service by a very efficient company. I have no hesitation in recommending Able Felt roofing.

I had my guttering replaced about 18 months ago but it was leaking and splashing on a wooden side door, at the front of my house. I couldn’t get the previous installer to come back and make good. I choose Able Felt Roofing after reading reviews on Which? Communication with Malcolm was clear and concise. Paul (son) attended to assess the job. I wanted an additional downpipe and we agreed on the placement. I then received a very reasonable written quote, via email. On the day, Paul arrived on time and completed a very neat job and cleared up all the mess made on my drive, as well as my neighbour’s drive. I received an invoice the following day that was less than the original quote, so I was very happy.

I have used Malcolm a few times over the years and had no hesitation in calling him when I needed some roofing and drainpipe repairs. He came round quickly, gave a good quote and completed the work professionally and to his usual high standard. Thoroughly recommended.
