About

The business was founded over 32 years ago by Derek Little. A film cameraman and mountaineer in a previous life, Derek became a roofer as a way of making a living in his local area of London. In 1985, he set himself up as a one man outfit, and was a familiar sight on roofs around Stoke Newington.

After two decades of roofing experience, in 2006 Derek incorporated his business as The Roofing Crew Ltd. The company continues to provide top-quality roofing services across London.

It is a business that has been built on word of mouth. In fact, around 40% of the work we do still comes from recommendations, a testament to our commitment to craftsmanship, hard work and honest pricing.

During a tropical downpour the bay window roof leaked. Had a number of roofers around to quote for the bay and to overhaul the main slate roof. Derek was the only roofer to offer a number of solutions for the bay. He quoted for all the different bay solutions (all competitive) and for the main roof overhaul. All the other roofers just gave bog standard single solution quotes and most just decided the main slate rood has to be replaced inappropriately with tiles, without pointing out the roof would have needed strengthening. I decided on Derek’s crew and they carried out the jobs cleanly and efficiently. Photographing the state of the roof before and after. What was remarkable was that all his crew were extremely polite, conscientious and cleaned up at all stages afterwards. Another leak appeared on an extension roof. To track its origin part of a ceiling had to be removed. All done in a couple of days and then later after drying out all restored without a blemish. What is clear is that Derek has an extensive knowledge of roofing technology is able to advise on novel solutions and takes enormous pride in the quality of the jobs and his crew. His prices are competitive and probably the best recommendation is that after a number of gales and torrential rain storms since the different repairs the house is as dry as a bone.

My roof tiles were replaced 5 years ago. Clay tiles replaced with Concrete. Although the roofer had done a great job replacing the tiles there was no strengthening done to the roof structure itself. After discovering information while researching on the Net that strengthening may have been required, I contacted a structural engineer. He found that the roof structure was sound and that his only recommendation was to strengthen the purlins. Additionally he had also noticed the facade above the upstairs bay was in poor condition and needed attention. I contacted The Roofing Crew and spoke to the owner, Derek, regarding the report and he was more than happy to come inspect the roof and give me the benefit of his extensive knowledge. He supplied me with a quote and a few weeks later he turned up with his team instructed them on what was required. Derek returned most days to check on progress and discuss with me any issues I wished to raise. The Lads were great and very professional and were more than happy to answer questions and keep me informed at every stage of their work. The work was finished to an excellent standard. Photographs were taken before, during and after the work. The woodwork on the front of the house above the upstairs bay was actually found to be rotten and needed removed, replaced and painted. This slightly increased the cost quoted but only by a very reasonable amount. I thoroughly recommend The Roofing Crew for a professional job done well.

Derek and co did an excellent job fixing my flat roof and roof terrace. Derek is genuinely committed to exploring the problem, explaining it and solutions to you and then carrying out the best job. He visits the job every day to check in progress and cuts no corners. I would highly recommend The Roofing Crew.

Derek responded well to my request for work that required fixing inadequate work that had been done on my back addition roof. The quote was extensive, prices very fair, and schedule was kept. The quality of work for a complex job is excellent, and will enable me to get building regulations approval. The roofers were well-qualified, pleasant to deal with, and cleaned up very well. I would have no hesitation in using the company again, and recommend them highly.

This is the second time we have used The Roofing Crew. We used them for roof work on our last house and had no hesitation to call them again when we moved and needed work done on our new place. Derek is an honest, upfront professional who will explain the work needed and how he will go about it. Very happy with the finished work on both occasions and highly recommend them!

I've had 2 successful jobs completed and very helpful advice on another matter. First was fixing a roof leak which had been repaired very poorly by another builder. Derek explained my options very clearly, showed comprehensive before/after photos and did an excellent job fixing flashing / tiling of roof, chimney stack and party wall. Second was investigating a leak from a flat roof which needed replacing, again the work was completed to a very high standard, and the team very efficient. Finally I needed urgent help evaluating some crazy building plans by my neighbours which impacted my party wall. Derek certainly went the extra mile and was very helpful!

I received a comprehensive quote detailing the work involved in replacing a flat roof, listing materials to be used and with photos of existing rood. The team arrived on time, worked hard in all weathers and left the site tidy each day. I received further photos during the work and on completion. Any problems during the process were quickly resolved. I am very happy with the work that was carried out and would definitely recommend them to others.

A complete overhaul of the gutters, boarding and clay tiles on my detached house was preceded by masses of photos showing the problems in detail, then a complete list of materials and labour needed. The work was speedily achieved by Derek's team of good and polite roofers, who cleaned up every evening, regardless of weather conditions. Lots of completion photos followed. Any outstanding queries were quickly and cheerfully resolved. It was a surprisingly pleasing experience.

This company carried out repairs to my slate roof and dealt with some tricky guttering problems. Tony produced detailed quotes, was great to deal with and is hugely knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Great service, excellent work, minimal fuss! We had a flat roof in need of complete replacement during a rainy period, and it was done within three weeks of ordering. I was supplied with an accurate quote, and kept up to date with many photos as the work proceeded. I would certainly use them again, and heartily recommend their services.
