About

G.S Roofing is a family run business established in 1975 by the current owner and Managing Director Mr Gordon Strank. G.S Roofing as been operating from our current office and yard since 1985 and became a member of The National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) in 1988.

Having been based in Wimbledon for the past 30 years, many of our customers have been through recommendations, and there are few roads left in the area where our roofing work cannot be seen.

We have a team of reliable and experienced employees who carry out all our work including scaffolding. Many have been with the company for a number of years.

Our office is open 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and our friendly staff will be happy to help with any enquiries, or to book a free 'no obligation' estimate.

Excellent service - would recommend

We used GS Roofing to repair a leaking box gutter in our roof. Previously 2/3 companies had attempted to repair it but after doing botch jobs the roof was still leaking into our upstairs flat. Gordon and the team were very confident in their ability to stop the leak by replacing to box gutter, and so far so good! The work also comes with a guarantee which is great. A lady called Stephanie deals with the invoices and booking of the date for the work, she was really lovely, friendly and always replied very quickly. I'd definitely use them again and would recommend them to others.

I had a number of different roofing jobs, some of them quite fiddly (e.g. dismantling the precarious top of a chimney stack) and one of them requiring some diagnostic testing and assessment (unexpected damp in a party wall). Other roofers had given me assessments that seemed motivated by maximising the expense of the work to be done rather than by an honest view of what needed to be done. G.S.Roofing London Ltd gave me a clear and understandable view, a good price and a good window for doing the work. In the event, the team turned up on the days specified and worked efficiently and flexibly on the roofing and chimney tasks, picking up a couple of additional tasks on the way. They communicated well with me as the owner and with other workers (painters) doing work on the site. They were friendly and good humoured, working without complaint in very hot, humid and sunny conditions. They cleared up really well around themselves. The quality of the work is very high. It was completed in very good time. A more than satisfactory experience. I recommend them and will use them again in the future.

Contacting this firm, following an accident that left a gaping hole in a roof, resulted in prompt attendance to survey the problem, an offer of temporary covering, & two estimates: one merely to make good the hole, & the other (at my request) to bring the Victorian roof to better-than-contemporary insulation standards but within a conservation framework. Workmen arrived a fortnight later – in pouring rain – to erect scaffolding & to replace a previously-broken draincover. Day 2, a team arrived (in sunshine) & completed the major part of the work. During Day 3, I watched the meticulous workmanship in replacing the leadwork, & Day 4, a downpipe & another damaged draincover were replaced & the scaffolding removed. The workmanship is first class; the men cheerful, polite & respectful; & I have a 10-year guarantee from a firm in which I have complete trust.

We have a complex roof which had several unrelated problems. The team did a good job from start to finish. Came promptly to estimate, then swiftly to start work when we gave the go ahead. The work seems to have been done to a high standard. Left the site clean and tidy. I was particularly impressed with the care they took to identify and fix a problem that three other roofers have failed to fix.

GS Roofing had previously provided a good service in reroofing the main roof so we had no doubts about asking them to do a flat roof repair and some complicated chimney repointing. The work was fairly urgent and although Christmas was close a start date of 2-3 weeks away was promised. This was kept and the work finished within the estimated four days, just before Christmas. This was much appreciated. Gordon came out to discuss the work beforehand and we were kept informed of progress. The invoice was exactly as estimated without even a charge for a roof board that was needed although was separately costed in the quotation. Overall, a very good job was done, within the time and cost agreed. Thanks very much to GS Roofing Ltd!

Gordon Strank inspected the roof which was leaking, identified the problem and discussed what was needed. He avoided me having unnecessary work carried out. Before putting the scaffolding up they were careful to protect my neighbour's side roof and side windows. The work was then carried out very efficiently and the scaffolding taken down on the same day the work was completed. Throughout the process Stephanie in the office answered any queries I had very quickly and kept me informed of when the scaffolding and the work was to be carried out. They took photos of the completed work which were then emailed to me. Great service by all involved.

In 2013 GS Roofing was very busy so Gordon Strank himself arrived and completed an excellent repair on the top front dormer window. In 2019 a storm had damaged the guttering of the back addition to the house and the ageing roof had a lot of moss to be removed. Unnoticed by me, but identified by Mark Bennett, the party wall cement was also damaged and flaking. In addition the cover on an air vent was missing. He & Stephanie organised the quotation and its subsequent amendments - all completed amicably and helpfully. I scheduled the scaffolding with Mark for joint use (not at the same time) with a double glazing company to install a new window (any scaffolding by the glazing company was not allowed to be shared). Colin, assisted by a younger Mark and Jack, set up the 2-story high scaffold and the planned work completed on time and checked personally by Gordon Strank. The window was fitted the following day. The day after that, the scaffolding was taken down by Colin & the younger Mark. Thus, having visited the top of the scaffold 6 or 7 times, the project was a great success with all planned work finished to my complete satisfaction & there was no consequential damage. Since I am not an experienced purchaser of roofing works I felt a minor possibility of having paid a slight premium (hence the 4* on value and perhaps I am being a little unfair) but my trust in GS was proven and I have no cost complaint to make! My sincere thanks to all the team!

Cancelled the day he was due to start
Work booked in for a couple of weeks following a visit and quote for a repair to a GRP balcony. I confirmed the start time on the previous working day with the owner directly and then he never turned up. When I called to find out what was happening someone in the office said "he has decided that he doesnt want to do the job" and "he is not available to talk to you". He never called back to explain! Fortunately I managed to find someone else to do the work a couple of weeks later - turned out GS Strank were going to use the wrong product and were quoting twice as much!

Unfortunately on this occasion we were unable to meet the customers requests, due to our working procedures and practices. (This was clearly explained and our apologies were expressed by our Manager when he called the customer. No deposit was paid, No invoices where sent, and NO work was started)
No hesitation in recommending G S Roofing in Wimbledon

I have used GS Roofing three times in recent years to do work on the roof of our Victorian house. They have re-rendered parapet walls, rebedded ridge and hip tiles, and removed moss. On each occasion they responded promptly to provide advice, written quotes and subsequently carry out the work required. They provide their own scaffolding, which I believe is advantageous, and clear up after themselves. They turned up when they said they would, and informed me of any delays due to bad weather, etc. All their staff, including scaffolders/roofers and those in the office are helpful, polite, friendly and pleasant to deal with. Their charges seem reasonable, and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
