Tommy and his team replaced my garage roof and carried out some repair work to our main roof . They were tidy, friendly and did a good job.

The job. Refurbishment of our bungalow low pitched roof. Tommy Grimes' team did what they quoted and have done a first rate job. They had to deal with poor weather but always made sure our home was watertight. They worked carefully and accurately and kept the site orderly and controlled. When asked they always took time to explain what they were doing and why. The job involved replacement of woodwork on fascias and soffits as well as re-undercloaking and felting. Mortar work was always carefully done in dry conditions. They took particular care of woodwork that had recently been painted, avoiding any damage to it. They are excellent time-keepers, polite and quiet and we would recommend their services to anyone. We have made provision with Allways for another small job for us next spring.

Allways Roofing were very professional and attentive. They completed the work on time and the standard of this workmanship was excellent. The people involved were reliable at all times and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.

Just to say how good it was that you hand-carried the document for the insurance company this morning.  The after-care that you give to your customers is greatly appreciated and I'm sorry I've put you to this extra trouble.

Tommy Grimes and his team have provided an excellent service. Their knowledge, professionalism and good humour have made having them work at our home a pleasure. Both the original repairs and additional work that we requested was completed as per the price quoted, and in a very timely manner. They were tidy workmen, and quick to keep us informed and advise of any additional considerations. I won't hesitate to use Tommy and his team again, and would recommend them to any friends or neighbours.

We are very happy with the service provided by Tommy Grimes and his team when we had issues with our existing roof and will recommend them to friends and neighbours. Tommy was on site regularly and his team were pleasant and considerate (no radios etc.).

We called in Tommy and his team after wasting money with another roofing company (not in this book!) who took several hundreds of pounds and achieved nothing towards fixing a roof leak into our bathroom. Tommy and his team were punctual, polite, humorous and clearly experts in their field. They delivered a first class repair of our roof in a timely manner and were a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommended.

Prompt, polite and reliable service. Tommy and the team replaced a flat garage roof for the price quoted, in good time and made a very neat job of it. Highly recommended.

Tommy made a site visit within 2 days of calling and offered a number of affordable solutions to our roofing issues as well as carrying out a temporary repair to prevent further damage until he could schedule the work.  Appreciative of the urgent nature, he organised his guys to arrive quickly who were polite, friendly, courteous, tidy and efficient throughout.  Highly recommended.

Mr Grimes and his team are the most reliable tradespeople I have ever had contact with. Their work is faultless, they turn up on time, and are very neat and tidy. Highly recommended.

Very pleased with the prompt, efficient, courteous and tidy refurbishment of tiled roof, involving replacement of broken tiles, renewal of lead flashing and repointing of verges. Very reasonable all-in quote, which was stuck to. I would recommend Allways without hesitation.
