We have used this firm for over a decade to maintain our roof and guttering. They have done an excellent job and are a pleasant and friendly team to deal with. The prices are always fair and the work high quality.

Dealt with a long-standing leak in roof. The work was as scheduled and on budget. We'd made a previous attempt to fix the problem with a different trader, and we'd also obtained several quotes - Cox's inspection, diagnosis and work was more thorough and comprehensive. We chose them for their approach, not the price, which was more than most (not all) of the quotes but we felt it was worth it. Alan and his family were very pleasant, helpful, altogether a pleasure to do business with. It hasn't rain since, but I'm optimistic that we won't see the problem again.

They turned up promptly, worked efficiently, and kept me informed. I was lucky to have the quick repair done very quickly since they'd finished another job a day early. Good to have some-one that you can trust.

Alan and the guys fitted a new slate roof including a gable to the front of our house in Leytonstone. It also required additional supports to be fitted inside the roof. They were very friendly, had the work done in a week as predicted. The costs were as originally estimated and reasonable based on other quotes we received. I’m no expert but the roof looks very professionally done inside and out and Alan is clearly very experienced and does a good job. Communication ahead of the job was also good. Would highly recommend. Thanks Alan.

Provided a good quote for me on a range of work, and conducted a subset of that without issue, delivering this very quickly and without fuss. Followed up on my questions after the job done and provided assurance that work would be redone if needed (it wasn't). Nothing negative to say. First class.

I cannot recommend the Cox family more highly. From initial enquiry (answered within 24 hours - even though it was over the weekend) to finished job was effortless and pain-free - would that all builders worked like this. The front guttering needed replacing and there was a leak from next door's oddly built extension that only happened when the wind and rain were from one particular direction . . . but a solution was proposed and carried out. We were told the job would take a day - and it did. They were incredibly neat and tidy. The final price was as quoted - and they cleaned out the back gutter while they were up there. I once made the mistake of using someone else. I never will again!

Cleared out debris from an old Victorian lead valley and made watertight and replaced broken tiles. Cleared gutters and blocked a hole where birds were entering and damaging the loft. Sealed the brick wall above my garage door with Cromopol fibreglass solution. This is the 6th time I have employed them over the past 20 years in my present and previous homes and I can highly recommend them. They provide before and after photos of the work done.

Moved into a house to discover that a flat roof on the first floor was leaking. Autumn was on its way, and the house needed to be watertight before winter. Within a day of making an enquiry, Alan Cox had visited, assessed the situation, and provided a quote. It was extremely reassuring to have a quotation which clearly listed each stage of the project, estimating time and cost. The job was booked, and work was scheduled for later in the following week. The team arrived as planned and, as extra crew were available, the job was completed ahead of schedule. Without extra charge, gutters were cleaned and some other minor tasks were done. Once the roofing team had finished, the removal of scaffolding was arranged and completed that same afternoon. Trustworthy and reliable, thoroughly recommended. Great value for a job well done.

Excellent work carried out, clearing and mending gutters, valleys, replacing down pipes and putting back slipped tiles. The team were lovely, friendly and did a really professional job. Such a relief to have trustworthy, accurate estimates so I could budget the very reasonable cost.

Alan and his family team provided a smooth stress free experience removing an old time expired roof and the installation of a spanking new one to a house in East London. They went out of their way to advise and problem solve other problems found when the roof was removed such as the need to repair walls and repoint. They demonstrated a professional approach built on years of experience and showed a high regard for health and safety. They were trustworthy and I felt completely comfortable in them accessing the house and they left the job site tidy. Alan provided sound advice about the future management of the roof. If you need roof work I could not recommend Cox and Sons and Daughter more highly.
