After getting over the shock of needing a new roof, Alan and his sons did an amazing job through some difficult weather including the recent storm. Our back extension made it more complex especially for erecting the scaffolding. Nothing seemed a problem and they were clean and well organised. We were kept informed every step of what they were doing. It was like having friends doing the work. Really pleased. Have already recommended them. Many thanks.

We called Alan Cox a few days ago due to a missing tile on our roof; and similar problem on our neighbour's roof. He came the same day to survey the problems, and also quickly fixed both problems at an extremely reasonable price. He also checked the rest of our roofing; and unlike so many conman builders [which is the average member of the public's dread] did not diagnose any problems that don't exist [!] and in our case found the rest of the roofing fine. Excellent work, very reasonably priced, and totally trustworthy! Most strongly recommend!

Alan and his son have removed debris between the tiles and the underfelt and they have placed air vents. They checked carefully all the roof and replaced broken tiles. They are professional and did the work efficiently. I can recommend Alan Cox and sons

Alan and his sons did a superb job on the roof of our two adjoining Georgian terraced houses. They expertly replaced the lead over a bay and the linked gutter. The work also involved stripping out a bottom course of tiles to the mansard roof, setting them aside for re-use, and fitting cover flashing in the joint parapet wall. Alan is very knowledgeable about modern and old roof architecture. We had suffered rainwater leaks for about three years. They were patched up but always returned after a while. Finally, we contacted Alan who confidently diagnosed the problems and resolved them. He takes pictures with his smartphone of any defects he finds on the roof so you can agree and be sure of what needs to be done. He also did excellent and necessary repair work on the front and rear gable end walls of the roof. This meant stripping out tiles and fitting aluminium soakers to each course. Because Alan does everything in a highly professional way, we cannot recommend him enough.

We were having continuous problems with a leaking valley, which previous roofers had failed to sort out. Alan gave a clear explanation of what he thought the problem was and what work was required. Alan & Sons took their time over the work and even showed me pictures of the work carried out. Excellent and courteous service.

Alan and his sons were easy to deal with: very prompt response in terms of visiting the site, quoting and responding to queries. The quote was reasonable compared to others and he actually carried out other minor jobs within that price once he had commenced. Job was done quickly and cleared up completely afterwards. Cannot recommend too highly.
