Professional work but very expensive

Birchenough Construction responded very quickly when called about a leak to our roof. A roofer came the same day to inspect and estimate. The formal estimate (£360 inc VAT) arrived quickly from Birchenough and the roofer returned early the following week to make the repair and followed up with a subsequent visit to check that everything was OK. The roofer was punctual, polite and professional and the work appears to have been carried out well. I was very surprised that making the repair took one man less than an hour and wrote to Birchenough to point out that a bill of £360 for less than two hours work, including the visits to estimate and then to check things were OK after the repair, is exorbitant and not what I would expect from a Which Trusted trader. I received no response to this letter.

The trader replied (on 09/10/2019)
I apologise that we did not respond in a timely manner to your letter, but we have been inundated with work due to the very wet summer we have experienced, nonetheless, we should have replied sooner. I am sorry that you did not find the cost of the repair value for money and it might be helpful, therefore, if I explain how we structure the charges for our work and how this applied to the sum that was estimated, accepted and billed for. The minimum charge for any roofing job we undertake is one day’s work plus materials this is because until we strip the roof covering off to undertake a repair, we do not know what we will encounter. It is not possible at the stage of providing an estimate to know what issues we may face; we may need to replace roof battens and damaged felt etc and if that is the case, we would need to remove a larger section of the roof and replace any damaged tiles in the process, because of this we cannot book our operatives in for more than one repair per day. All the estimates we provide are for a fixed price and we take the risk as a business that the job could be more extensive than we have estimated for i.e. more than one day. Unusually, in your case, the repair proved to be very straightforward and we did not encounter any further damage to repair. Our business model ensures that we can to guarantee the cost will never exceed our estimate and our customers receive a 100% professional and comprehensive repair with a 10 year guarantee.

I had Mark from Birchenough Construction re-roof the house. I was provided with a detailed estimate and full costing and the work came out to budget. Mark, the roofer who carried out the work was courteous, efficient and highly skilled with materials being replaced with materials authentic to the age of the house.

Repair to chimney stack pointing and waterproofing. Efficient and quick response. Work was done efficiently and we were kept informed on what was being done. Payment was easy with bank transfer-no demands fro cash only which I am always suspicious of. Overall very pleased and would use again. So difficult to find a reliable builder.

Mark and his team were extremely professional. They were able to carry out the work well before the initial estimated date and made the process of getting our roof fixed extremely painless. We definitely would recommend their services to our friends and colleagues.

The work was carried out on the date on time agreed, and completed to a high professional standard. An itemised bill was presented and if any problems occurred they would be rectified free of charge. There have been no problems.

Mark turned up when he said he would & one of his men fitted a new chimney cowl for me on the specified day. Not the cheapest builder I have had but very knowledgeable & efficient.

I have used Mark Birchenough for many years for all sorts of property repairs, building maintenance, plumbing and electrical work etc. and have never had cause to complain. Every job has been carried out efficiently and on time. I have now booked him to install my new en'suite bathroom and have no reservations whatsoever in using him again.
