This is actually the second time I have contracted DG Locker Roofing . Any form of Building work one undertakes, there is always a certain amount of hesitation and sometimes distrust because many of us have been victims of a bad experience. You see, this is where Dave Locker stands out and represents his trade in a professional Craftsman like manner . I like his calmness, honesty and knowledge which has been invaluable on both jobs but you receive that certain comforting feeling that you will truly be in good hands. Then we come to his roofer Chris, who has been with Dave for a long time, Chris is just an amazing guy, hugely talented an incredible Roofer that wants to do nothing but the best for the client. His end product is a Master piece which is a true pleasure to admire . We are thrilled the second time around just like we were the first time. My new Blue Welsh tiles are a true joy, the skylights look so smart and the Flat Roof just the way it be . Dillion if you continue to observe Chris and Dave you could possibly be a contender for the next Roofer of the Year in a few years to come! Who knows? Thank you all for an outstanding job! Michaela

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!

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.

We needed repairs to the valleys on our roof, with difficult access on one side, so scaffolding required. After trying to get quotes from three other roofing companies with no luck (did not turn up or return call etc) , we were very pleased that D G Locker did everything that they said they would, when they said. A detailed quote was provided for the work needed and the price was adhered too. Scaffold went up on the day before and the 2 roofers turned up early the next day. They did a good job and cleaned up after. So very pleased.

I was recommended this company by a friend. Dave gave me a quotation and explained exactly what would be done and what materials used. They repointed and re-leaded the chimney and re-roofed using the difficult, handmade tiles, finding matching replacement tiles for those which were damaged. The work was exemplary and the workforce good humoured and extremely professional, taking pride in the quality of their work. I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again or to recommend them to anyone. It can be daunting trying to find a roofer who you can trust to be honest and at the top of their profession but I am happy to say I found that D. G. Locker Roofing are exactly that. Thank you so much to them.

We engaged the company to replace our dormer & garage flat roofs. The dormer was also insulated as part of the work. The work was carried out when agreed and we were kept up to date with photos of the progress. Everything was tidied up and left waterproof each day, and where necessary tiles were replaced. Where guttering had to be removed and replaced this was done so well that we subsequently got a quote for reinstalling all our guttering, with additional joints as necessary; we had several leaky joints. This work was also done efficiently and cured all our leaks. We got three quotes, but chose D G Locker as the price for the flat roof work was competitive.

David Locker replaced the front facing roof of our home with interlocking tiles as we were advised by our surveyor that the tiles on this part of the roof were in a poor state of repair and we also had a leaking roof at the junction with our neighbour's roof. Mr Locker advised us that it would be possible to repair the roof but that there could be further problems due to the age of the roof tiles which were laminating and slipping off. We were most satisfied with the Mr Locker's work and the price charged. My brother has also used Mr Locker to replace the front and side of his roof with clay tiles in 2007. The replacement roof was also of a high standard and the price charged was reasonable.
