So pleased I found D G Locker Roofing Ltd

Storm Ciara did serious damage to the front and rear verge ends of my roof, including ripping off 2 slates, leaving me exposed to the elements with heavy rain forecast. Dave Locker and team were with me within 2 days to do an emergency repair and back within a week to make full repairs at a very fair price. Much appreciation and thanks to Dave and his efficient and courteous roofers for an excellent and competent repair and for a prompt response to my call for help. Everything was left immaculate on completion. Thanks also to Sheila Locker, who responded so promptly to my emails. Dave first came to my help in Dec 2013 when I had rainwater dripping through my bedroom ceiling where a flat roof met the main roof. A few months earlier, a builder (recommended) had renewed my flat roofs and apparently had done poor quality work. I found D G Locker Roofing in the Hertford C Council trusted traders list. When Dave Locker came to have a look, he took photos of the work done, so I could see for myself the cause of the problem and what had not been completed professionally. Dave and his team sorted out all the problems, put everything to rights and did a premium job. My flat roofs have remained waterproof ever since. So twice the D G Locker Roofing cavalry have ridden to this lady's rescue and I am most appreciative. Thank you Dave Locker and your excellent team. You are my first port of call should I have any more disasters and I cannot recommend you and your firm highly enough.

DG Locker replaced the soffit, gutter and facia at the front of our house. A small job but done very efficiently and to a high standard. Reasonable cost, a cheery and conscientious team, backed up by efficient and regular communication from their office. Would definitely used them again if the need arises.

I am writing this review 1 year, 3 months after Dave and his excellent team did my double garage flat roof - it was a very well done job but just never got around to reviewing. I have been prompted to come back to leave a review, because I now realise how rare a 'very good' roofer is and Dave goes above and beyond. This month I rang to ask for some advice on an issue that has developed on a slate roof done by a roofer sub-contracted by my builder. Dave was so knowledgeable, knowing the latest British Standards (2015) and was able to give options to remedy it. I particularly appreciated that he didn't default (like many traders) to rubbishing someone else's work and explained what was done well and what wasn't and why. I have read around the subject of roofs recently and am shocked how lax our Building Regs are on this. You can drive a bus through them so if you want a job well done I will now always recommend going with a roofer that is experienced and follows the latest British Standards. Dave fits this bill!

After contacting many roofers which was a disappointing & time consuming experience, I came across D.G Locker from Which? From the quote, Dave actually took his time to measure and answer questions. After the quote was emailed quickly with lots of details about materials/techniques to be used, very professionally done. Sheila in the office was great at communication and coordination. The permit was obtained and the scaffolding went up quickly. I had the flat roof and pitched roof done as there were problems with leaking & condensation. Roof vents were put in to increase airflow and they put in a new PVC fascia at no labour cost, as the old wood one had rotted, discovered on the job. The team were polite, efficient, hard-working and punctual. Even the competent inspector came to check on the job! I know I made the right choice in choosing this company as they really take pride in their work and want everything done right. All the work is guaranteed for 10 years and I know if there were any problems they would be round to fix them. Highly recommended and even though they are based in Hertfordshire I am so glad they work in Islington too! Thank You.

Dave's firm replaced the rear section of our roof (approx. 40 sq. metres). The work included stripping off the old slates, re-levelling the existing rafters with additional ones, installing new insulation, leadwork, felt, battens, new slates and fixing new fascia and rainwater gutter. The work was completed to the agreed budget and timescale and the standard of workmanship was excellent. The team were a pleasure to have around: punctual, friendly, hard working and polite. Dave is very professional, knowledgeable & inspires confidence. His wife Sheila is the office manager and is friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended!

Having dealt with many tradesmen before its easy to say I would gladly put my name behind Dave and his company; honest and fair assessment and quoting prior to job, proficient, swift and professional work alongside honest and helpful feedback after the work. If I need anything doing in his area, Dave will be the first person I call.

Tricky job performed with multiple teams to high standards

D.G. Locker Roofing undertook a tricky job requiring multiple teams which involved fixing of roof tiles, some of which required a large amount of scaffolding over a conservatory. Three teams were involved (2 roofing teams and one scaffolding team who had to erect and take down the scaffolding) and all work done was thorough, professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend for roofing work!!

We have used D G Locker for many years on two different houses. This time they laid polyurethane roof coating on a flat roof to render it weatherproof, replaced lead flashing and checked everything up there. We were given a choice of prices, depending on how long we wanted it to last and how much money we wanted to spend. All work started and finished when they said it would, the paperwork was handled in a friendly and efficient way and Dave Locker came back when we had a query after the job was finished. The two who did the work over a period of 5 days, Chris and George, were a pleasure to have around. Highly recommended all round as an honest and trustworthy company.

My flat roof had been leaking for some years and temporary repairs had failed, so it was time to permanently resolve the problem. Following Dave's visit he provided a quote for a day and half's work which accurately reflected the work that needed to be done and was actually the lowest of the three quotes I obtained. Following my acceptance of the quote we agreed a start date and time. The two roofers duly arrived bang on time, brought all they needed with them, and stuck with my job until it was complete. They took photos as they went which they sent me afterwards which showed a very neat and excellent job, and they actually finished early without having to return the next day. While here they also checked out my other flat roof (which had not been leaking) and after a quick clean said it was fine and needed no attention.
