Decision without Inspection - Unprofessional
I assumed that because it had full 5 Star Reviews that Amastic would be the ideal firm to fix my flat roof leak following a huge downpour on 02 July. But I soon learned that that was not the case. I contacted them by text on the day of the leak and asked them to come and have a look. I said I’d send photos separately. They asked for the photos. I emailed them 2 photographs of the flat zinc roof taken from my loft office window, explained what happened and asked them to come and have a look. They then sent a quotation for £6,336 for replacing the zinc roof with asphalt, without having inspected the problem. I wrote back saying I found their response disappointing and that I was surprised that they felt able to submit a quote for a new roof before coming to investigate the actual leak problem. I would have thought that an organisation that is a 5 Star Which Trusted Trader would be sufficiently professional to do a site visit before deciding on the solution. They wrote back a long email arguing against my position. Apart from making a decision without surveying the site which I as a retired architect found completely unprofessional and unacceptable, their proposed new asphalt roof was also ill-considered in my opinion. My experience is that Asphalt is a problem roof covering which cracks very easily and continually needs repairing. It is also entirely inappropriate given the rising temperatures. I decided not to waste any more time with them and contacted another 5-star roofer, who came and assessed the problem, did a temporary repair and then one month later did an excellent job. I awarded them 5 stars. Amastic’s unprofessional behavior, on the other hand, has prompted me to write a review to alert other future customers. Basically I would never recommend them.

Oh Dear Sour Grapes! This is the email that was sent on the on the 4th of July 2020. To Mr Murray. Hi John, You have told us this roof is 37 years old. As the zinc roof is of this age and, you have had problems that you have tried to repair unsuccessfully yourself. And now more have appeared. We feel that any repairs would not last, and not cost effective due to the age of the roof. The costings we have given you for work ,are from the photos and the information you have given us. And, should be considered a firm quote until site visit has been carried out. All quotes are subject to a site visit, and as our estimator is self-isolating due to health issues, we have given you some idea of what this will cost. Plus we would need a site visit to confirm price. In these severely difficult times, we do try to provide as much information to our clients and potential clients. To be as informative and helpful as we can. Also, we would not be prepared to do a repair on a 37 year old flat roof, that we are not prepared to guarantee. After you yourself advised us that you yourself have carried out a repair in the past that has not worked. Please email back to confirm receipt. Thanks, Kind Regards, Marilyn A R & B S Ltd., We never received a reply to the email. Until the above was posted on the 18.08.20. Perhaps the above did not realize about covid19 ?? And self isolation!! Plus bearing in mind we have never carried out any work for Mr Murray, What have we actually done wrong?

Recently, three family members of Amastic replaced our home roof lead flashing, some broken roof tiles, roofing felt and pointing. This was completed to a high standard, in a professional manner, explaining exactly all the work being undertaken. Arriving on time and tidying the area when finished ... many thanks to Ken, Kenny and Tony - great guys! Would definitely recommend Amastic Roofing & Building Services.

Did some repointing at the back of our house. Started the work before quoting and then sent us an invoice for £3,000 for a job that I still for the life of me cannot understand how it cost so much. Invoice had no detail on it, and I requested more info to understand the costs. Every time I sent a message it was ignored, and instead was just constantly sent aggressive emails telling me to pay or else. At one point they threatened a CCJ on me to affect my credit rating! Eventually I just paid to stop them harassing us, and they had also done the job so didn't want them out of pocket, but was an incredibly high price for the job, and the number of days (and people) they said it took is very different from what the people who let them in had noted.

Replacement asphalt roof and repair to slate roof

At the time of quoting, there were good suggestions based on many years of experience and valid observations of optional work which would improve the roof. Communication from the office was accurate and prompt. The work was done on the dates that had been booked, working around the needs of a small busy yard and warehouse. They were all helpful and professional. The work was done to a very high standard, much better than a smaller job we had done by another company some while earlier. Thoroughly recommendable.

Amastic have just replaced the slate roof on my house. They were considerate and careful, and my new (reconditioned Welsh) slate roof looks beautiful. I really appreciated Ken's expert advice on checking and disposal of the previous modern composite slate roof, which contained asbestos, and the options for replacement. Their quote was significantly cheaper, like for like, than the other quote I received and while the Welsh slate and the asbestos removal added significantly to the price, there were no surprises.

We had a roofing repair done and some other roofing work carried out. Prompt, clean and competent, They came out and quoted at a time convention to me, When work commenced they turned up promptly kept me informed at all stages, cleaned and tided after themselves. The work they carried out was done to a very high standard. I could not have asked for more from them. NH

We had a rooftop repair done. The traders turned up when they said they would, explained the problem, what caused it and then fixed it. They also didn't leave any rubbish; no sawdust or bags, which is an issue we've had before with traders.

We had a loft conversion done with slating, led work and some guttering. I've never been so happy with any contractors; they were bang on time, one of the brothers kept the place really clean, tidied the site, tidied the van, cleaned the street up as well and the work is immaculate

It was a loft conversion that was done for us and the timing was perfect, exactly to schedule. The guys were very good communicators and really friendly.
