Fix leaking Roof

Having previously used 4 other roofers and spending a lot of money without fixing the problem, we found Des on Which Trusted tradesmen. From the very beginning, Des was reliable and respectful. He thoroughly investigated what the problem was and took the trouble videoing it for us. He explained what was required in detailed and gave a fair price. Very pleased to say that the roof has been fixed and no leaks after more than one heavy rainfall. Left the site clean and tidy. Would highly recommend Des and will be using his services again. So very glad we finally found an honest and professional roofer. Thank you Des!

I have used Des's services previously and found him to be particular, in regards to details, in each job he tackles. He has remedied a number of building work completed by other builders. He has worked on my roof at the back and front of my house, he has repaired a elevated back wall, which had been damaged by Glaziers not putting support above a new window. He has repaired a garden wall. Des is courteous and polite. Des is reliable. Des's prices are very reasonable.

Mr Durant was polite and courteous. Upon meeting he made a thorough inspection and quote for the works which were required. He arrived when he said he would and the works were completed in a timely fashion. We will be using Des again in the future.

Punctual and tidy roof repair over front door

On 25 June 2018 a tile in the top row of the roof over our front door came loose and slid into the gutter. I phoned Des Durant to ask if he could fix it and give me a price. Des and his mate Jack came round right on time the following morning and gave me a quote which I accepted. With it being a relatively small job he could fit it in first thing the following morning. Again, Des and his mate Jack turned up right on time. As it turned out more than one tile had to be replaced in order to rebuild the join to the house wall. Because some bits are new on top of the old, the tile spacing and colour match are not perfect but are good enough and will weather. They tidied up after themselves. So, a good result; the company is to be recommended.
