The roof of my 1930s suburban semi was showing signs of wear and tear and I had discovered water stains on the purlins in the loft. I feared I might need a new roof or a substantial roof overhaul. I called in Hellings based on their reputation as a Which Trusted Trader and as a fairly local family firm. I'm so glad I did. They responded to my enquiry promptly, came and inspected the problem within the promised 10 days, and assured me the roof was basically in good condition with just a few tiles, hips and bonnets in need of replacement or repointing. I was concerned that they had a six month waiting list - a testament to their popularity and that the three Hellings Brothers undertake the work personally as a team. However, as mine was a small job, they were able to fit me in within a couple of weeks. The guys turned up on time, carried out the work as specified without fuss, answered my questions clearly and courteously and cleaned up impeccably afterwards. Their professionalism and friendliness was matched by the clarity of their paperwork - a transparent quotation, proper contract and detailed invoice. A less scrupulous firm might have taken me for thousands. In the event, my bill was in the high hundreds. I shall certainly ask Hellings Brothers to quote if I need roof repairs in the future.
