Excellent workmanship from a reliable and professional team

We have been very satisfied with the work Herkomer Roofing have carried out over the last year. Ben and his team have always responded quickly to help us out - coming at short notice in an emergency to fit a temporary roof at no extra cost when it was raining. We have had a number of works completed including renewing a leaking flat roof to replacing, tiles, guttering, fascias and fitting velux windows. They provide an excellent service from first point of contact to estimating and booking in work at a time that suits us. They are always polite, friendly and professional. They arrive on time and work really hard - clearing up after every job. They clearly pride themselves on completing work to a very high standard, being attentive to every detail of their work. We have felt reassured by their high level of professionalism as we have previously experienced poor work from another roofing company - so it was good to meet a trustworthy team who really care about doing a good job. Its really good to have a local company who do what they say they will do and put their customers first. We have recommended them to neighbors who have also had work completed to a high standard. We will certainly use them again for future works and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for the best roofing firm in the area who are competitive and trustworthy. Thank you Herkomer Roofing

Herkomer Roofing installed new GRP roofing to existing flat roofs on ground floor and first floor levels. The work involved stripping off existing 25 year old coatings and a lot of making good before new boards and coating were installed. Ben and his team turned up on time, worked continuously and professionally. They cleared waste materials promptly, left the site clean and tidy between visits and spotless on final completion. Communication was very good and they were flexible in dealing with difficult weather during the early part of the project. We felt that Herkomer Roofing gave very good value for money and it's good to know that the GRP work has a 20 year guarantee. C Slaney

Installation of pre-cast bonding gutters front and back, knock down shared rear chimney stack and negotiating with my neighbour and their builder
Customer Service
Quality

The assistance provided by Herkomer Roofing was outstanding in securing a satisfactory outcome for me following very poor work carried out by my new neighbour's builder. The roof is slated on a terranced property and was very poorly joined to my part of the roof. Mr Braine, proprietor, assisted with negotiating for the work to be rectified and supported me in the discussions with the builder and my neighbour. The rear chimney stack no longer served a purpose as my neighbour's builder had removed the remaining supporting chimney breast. I could not trust my neighbour's builder to undertake the work and insisted that following the poor work on the slate roof I would select the company to rectify the roof and to knock down the shared rear chimney. I have previously had repair work carried out to my main chimney and my roof by Herkomer Roofing and have always found them reliable, highly professional, tidy, curteous and polite as was the case on this occasion also. I could not have negotiated with my neighbour and their builder without the assistance of Mr Braine. The work was carried out at the agreed time and at the agreed cost. Mr Braine has a very calm, assertive manner and is very clear and helpful in explaining what is required, an absolut asset given the complicated circumstances with next door's builder. I am very happy with the work and have already recommended Herkomer Roofing to friends who also have been very happy with their work.

I have used Herkomer roofing twice during the last year and have found them both reliant and efficient.

The first job which Herkomer carried out for me was to replace a flat roof with fibre glass which was done both efficiently and on schedule. The second job was to replace guttering at the rear of my property,which again was completed on time and schedule. I have found this company both reliable and trustworthy and have no hesitation in recommending them. T.C.McSweeney

From design to the building and execution of a loft extension. Excellent craftsmanship in all aspects of the build. Clean & reliable. Everything that was quoted was delivered to a high spec and any changes I requested along the way were met with whatever the customer wants they can have. Ben highlighted out issues to the structure of my house which wasn't on his remit and has saved me time,money and stress free hassle in the future. Totally recommend Herkomer Roofing for any Job. Thank you for an excellent job, Well done

Whole job went well from initial visit to estimate job, to booking dates and to completion. Workers started at arranged time each day, were smart, tidy workers. Cleaned up thoroughly each day. Small problem sorted out quickly. Finished job looks good, met all expectations. Thoroughly recommend.

Not impressed

This was a fairly standard job, replacing existing fascias, soffits, bargeboards, gutters and downpipes. I had to point out two areas of work that were poorly executed and that would have caused me problems later. They re-did the work, but I shouldn’t have had to do this. Attention to detail was not good either. I had them back to redo one item on grounds of aesthetics. I fixed a fair sized gap myself between old and new soffits, and I have let others things go, to save hassle. Their advertising states that they are Master Craftsmen. On this job they definitely fell short of that description. On the up side, they were courteous, punctual, and tidy.

The trader replied (on 07/03/2016)
Hi mr slater I am very sorry you were not happy with the service you received from us. Any concerns you had on the job in question were rectified to your satisfaction immediately,we also re bedded on the verge tiles at no extra cost as there was a broken tile. The eave trays you were unhappy with were an oversight and the installer has been spoken to about future installations. This is the first bad review I have had in fifteen years and want to make sure it is the last. If there is anything more we can do for you please let us know

Involved would be cleaning gutters, varnishing windowsills, and general painting when required. Ben is professional, polite and hardworking and has never disappointed me over the several years that I have used his services. I have no hesitation in recommending this company which I now have done on several occasions with success.
