Excellent family firm

We had J W Scudder Roofing Ltd in to do a roof valley repair and I cannot speak highly enough about this company. After experiencing an exhausting search for an honest reliable roofing company it was a pleasure to meet this family firm. They quickly and simply explained, priced (and kept to the price), as well as completed the work at a very good speed, as well as slotting us in as an emergency, as we had water leaking into a bedroom whenever it rained. Excellent work, Excellent people, they are now our goto roofers. Thank goodness for which trusted traders and their recommendations.

New roof & installing UPVC soffits, fascia & cladding

This is a family run business which is friendly and highly professional. Unlike other companies I contacted they return your phone calls and turn up at the time arranged. John was very helpful and explained the whole process. His son completed the work along with two employees. He gave me an update of the progress each day. They were all extremely polite and friendly. They carried on working in extremely cold weather and rain. At the end of each day they left everything very neat and tidy. The quotation was very reasonable and matched the final price. I would definitely recommend them.

John Scudder ,father, came to view my property and give a quote for installing soffits,fascia and new downpipe etc. He answered all my questions thoroughly. His quote was very reasonable. The work was carried out by son,John,and two colleagues. They worked very hard ,and quickly,and efficiently, with excellent communication from John,as to how things were going,and answering any questions. They were cheerful and polite. We asked them to include another job we had forgotten to mention before ( refelting and installing some lead on top of a window). John explained the alternatives for doing the job and recommended the best and most cost effective way, at a very reasonable price,which we agreed,and the job was excellent. The whole job was excellent! Nothing was too much trouble and with friendly good humour. Excellent customer service. We recommend them highly.

Roof replaced with welsh slate as this was the original and survived 120 years
Customer Service

I moved into the house in 1998 and was told at that time that the roof would need replacing It has survived a further 27 years with repairs and the original roof was not lined so you could see the sky when tiles slipped off. I had researched what I wanted and knew the Welsh slates where more costly but This was important to me I wanted a local reliable company to do the job and provide aftercare, I met with 7 roofers and two stood out. This company is small so they are the people on the job, I felt they were trustworthy and had excellent reviews I now can confirm that they are competitively priced with no hidden expenses, the quote was descriptive and covered all the points I raised and this included adding extra insulation and boarding the roof. Communication and updating me was excellent. Cleanliness, tidiness and quality of work - Outstanding The job entailed removing all of the roof and lower roofs, disposing of this along with wooden buttons. Laying the new roof, wider guttering and grey ridge tiles The job happened seamlessly and for me was stress free A great company and a fabulous job

We had a new roof fitted. The work was completed in only 4 days The team worked hard and completed the job before we expected. The team were polite, helpful and listened to our requests and delivered them. The scaffolding was taken down the day following completion, and the skip and left over materials were collected promptly. We are very happy with our new roof and would recommend John, his son and their team without reservation.

New dry ridge system and minor repairs
Customer Service
Quality
Value
John Scudder was helpful and knowledgeable from our first discussions of the work. He was easy to communicate with - accepting that you won't always get through to a busy roofer immediately, every time, and he then called me back. I received a written quotation and the work was completed on time and at the quotation price. We had lost many ridge tiles during high winds, and lost a few further tiles. The roof leaked. A new dry system was fitted entirely satisfactorily but exposed a few failings in the original tiling, done before we bought the house. Gaps below the top rows of tiles had been partially hidden by excess mortar used to fix the ridge tiles that subsequently failed in the very high winds. John and I discussed options and the additional work was then quoted for and carried out. John's son was on site with a small team during the work and was also very friendly, helpful, and happy to discuss options. Roofing is never cheap but I believe the cost was reasonable for a large roof that needed extensive scaffolding.

J W Scudder have completed 3 jobs on my property (1 - new ridge tiles, 2 - bowed roof strut, 3 - missing roof tile). They turn up when they say they will, the final price always matches the original quote, they tidy up after themselves and I’ve never had any issues with the quality of their work. I definitely recommend them.

New roof

From the moment of first contact with Scudder Roofing, the service was excellent. John explained everything clearly and in detail and the quote was competitive. I was dreading the stress of having a completely new roof but the company organised everything efficiently (skip/scaffolding etc) Johns son and the other two roofers worked extremely hard every day and it was clear that they took great pride in their work and in attention to detail. They were also a pleasure to have around as they were always agreeable and upbeat. I am thrilled with my new roof which completely transforms the appearance of my house. I really can’t recommend this company highly enough. Totally trustworthy and fantastic workmanship.

My house is nearly 100 years old and the roof was in very poor condition. In Nov 22, I had a very bad leak. John did an inspection of the roof and also offered some very good advice. Some remedial work was done initially to prevent any further damage until a new roof could be fitted. The work was done to a very high standard and in a short period of time. They went out of their way to ensure that everything was done well. All the team were very polite and always tidied up after a day's work. They have excellent credentials, and all work is guaranteed. I would highly recommend them.
