This company has good reviews and therefore is in high demand, so we had to wait a couple of months for the work. However, it was worth it, as the work was completed efficiently to a very high standard. They removed all the old materials and left the area tidy.

I contacted Mark Birchenough Construction to check over and make repairs to my roof after another roofer told me I needed a complete re-roof. Their roofer came to the property very quickly and made a thorough estimate to complete the work. As expected, there was a short wait to get the work done but Mark communicated this clearly and the work was completed exactly when he said it would be. We had a number of tiles repaired and replaced, the chimney re-pointed and the ridge tiles seated and re-pointed, and the bill was very fair considering the amount of work done. The roofer talked me through any points of concern for the future and showed me photos of what had been completed. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with both the service and the quality of the work completed. I have another small roofing job to do and will be contacting Mark again today. Highly recommended.

The damaged lead flashing in a roof valley and chimney cowl replacements were completed exactly as per quotation and within the estimated timescale and at the quoted cost estimate. I was kept informed on access requirements (for the scaffolding) and updated on progress at all times, and the site was left nice and clean. Maybe not the cheapest, but a good honest well done job. This is the second time I have employed the company and do not hesitate to recommend them.

Birchenough Construction recently completed the felting and reslating the front section of our roof. Throughout the proceedings they carried out their work in a very professional manner; they were punctual, considerate and always kept us up to date with progress. They were particularly careful not to damage the lawn or plants in the front garden. We are very satisfied with the result. The cost of the work was good value. We would recommend Birchenough Construction's services for any roofing repairs on any building work that requires professional attention.

This is the second time we have used this company. They have always been honest, quoted a competitive price and not tried to do works that are not required (other companies told us we needed an entire new roof when most of it is perfectly decent). Most importantly they have communicated what they were doing and why. Would absolutely use again - have already recommended to a friend!

Having used Birchenough Construction previously (2016) we had no hesitation in contacting them again with regards to having a complete new roof on a property that we had acquired After receiving the estimate and agreeing the price (which was very competitive) the work was started on the agreed time and date. We were kept fully informed as to what was happening at all stages of the work as it progressed. Mark (the roofer) was very helpful and a complete professional. We are completely happy with the work that was carried out and would have no hesitation in recommending Birchenough Construction to anyone who is looking to have any work carried out. We would definitely use them in the future. Big thanks to all.

The work to replace my roof was carried out in accordance with the agreed quotation with no additional costs incurred. Mr Birchenough and his team were highly professional in all aspects of the job and the work was carried out promptly and in a timely, convenient way. At all times they were courteous and showed respect for my home, keeping everything clean and tidy. Mr Birchenough demonstrated knowledge and expertise beyond my normal expectations formed from experiences with other builders, proving his wealth of experience, level of skill and integrity. The quotation for the job was at the lower end of the estimates I obtained for the necessary work and I am thoroughly satisfied with the end result. I can confirm that there have been no problems or faults since completion of the work two years ago and I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Birchenough.

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.
A thoroughly reliable and helpful firm - strongly recommended.

I was fortunate enough to find Mark Birchenough to carry out roofing repairs, after three weeks of trying other firms who didn't even bother to turn up when promised. Mark responded quickly in arranging an assessment visit by one of his roofers at short notice. He arrived bank holiday Monday, was friendly, helpful, took photos to show us the problem and what needed doing. The quote from mark was very quick, done by email, so we were able to get the work arranged quickly. the same roofer did the work, spaced over two days because of the weather, came back to check it out and confirm everything was satisfactory. he cleared away all the rubbish and was generally pleasant and efficient. This work was agreed and carried out when the firm was extremely busy because of the heavy rain damage throughout the area. I have nothing but praise for mark and his roofer, who did what they promised, turned up when they promised and completed the work quickly and efficiently. They will be my first choice if we ever need roofing work again.
