Latest Reviews and Feedback

Michael at AMP Roofing was recommended to me by a colleague at work. 

Once contacted we arranged a time for him to come and view the house. 

He looked over the roof and fed back to me with photo evidence what he recommended would require doing; both essential and less urgent work.

The tasks I needed were replacement of an old Velux window and to investigate and repair a leaking roof over a Dormer window.

After a number of other roofing companies and considerable variances in the cost and details of work I contacted AMP Roofing, Michael Alexander.

 

From the initial email requesting whether Michael could come and take a look the responses were fast and polite.  We organised a time that was suitable and Michael arrived promptly.

 

During the initial visit Michael took the time to understand my requirements and issues and suggested a number of alternatives for both the roof repair and the Velux window options.  I was particularly impressed when Michael stated that I wouldn’t necessarily need a whole new valley and that a simple repair would be possible and cheaper, a very different and honest approach in comparison to other roofing companies I had seen.

 

After a discussion on best options I settled on the full valley replacement as time was pressing as it was impacting me getting the nursery ready (the internal wall had water damage).

 

The Velux replacement was for my bathroom, the original was 27 years old and not in best condition from previous owners. Again, unlike some of my other roofing estimates which intimated major issues with my roof, Michael explained the options and how the new profile would sit different internally requiring minor redecorating, and that the external tiles were not sitting correctly.  All this information really helps to inform you as a customer on the best option for your needs.

 

The quotation was provided via email as promised and was cheaper than the other estimates I had received so we agreed to proceed with AMP Roofing.

 

Michael accommodated my needs for flexibility and changed his preferred slot to enable the work to fit around my work pattern.  He arrived exactly when he said he would and took two days to complete all the works, exactly as estimated, and for the price he quoted.

 

Michael not only sorted out a Velux variant which meant the new Velux fitted exactly as the original, but he also repaired free of charge some missing mortar on a ridge tile on a separate part of the house. I had mentioned it on the second day and that I would need to get him back at some point, before I knew it he had popped the ladder up and repaired it, I asked how much extra for the work and he stated “I am not going to charge you for 5 minutes work”. Wow!

 

The work on both the valley replacement and Velux is superb and you honestly would not of guessed anybody had been working at the house when he had finished because he cleaned everything at the end of each working day.

 

I can not recommend AMP Roofing highly enough for being honest, thorough in his work with outstanding quality. 

 

I am an electrician myself and my retired father was a builder so I am well calibrated when it comes to how good a professional should be and Michael ticks all the right boxes for me.

 

I have more work to do around the home and have no doubts that Michael will be the person I trust to come back and undertake the work for me.

Used this company on many occasions and his work is excellent best around in my view.

The job was reroofing two conjoined sheds on our property, not a major job but rather awkward due to previous owners neglecting them and the position  [surrounded by holly and overhanging trees]. Michael removed old material, made minor woodwork repairs, and covered the roof in high grade flat roof material using heat to apply. 

Michael was very professional, very easy to deal with and has an honest and straightforward demeanour.

Michael attended the property on time, as agreed, to quote for the job. He gave a verbal quote and an official one by email the same day.

Michael agreed a date, offering a two day window to allow for poor weather. He informed us early n the AM that he would not be able to do the work on the first day, which was obvious given the rain and wind but was still appreciated.

Michael arrived early on the second day and performed the work in quick fashion, finishing mid afternoon.

Job was done first time, site was clean when he left, and we have had no issues with the roof since. 

Job was done for the agreed amount of the quote, and was billed same day for clarity.
