Latest Reviews and Feedback

Fantastic service and a very genuine tradesman. We called Leon as our roof started leaking and he came over to have a look the next day, keeping me informed when his arrival time was delayed because of a previous job. He was very honest about the condition of the roof, what work was sensible and how we could repair the water damage around the window ourselves, to save some money. The roof replacement took one full day and then a couple of hours on the second day. It looks great, the leak has gone, the price was very reasonable and you wouldn't even know he had visited, as he left the garden so tidy!

Leon installed a EPDM membrane to ours and our neighbours adjoining flat roof garages. We both are extremely pleased with the work carried out and finished affect. Leon and his work colleague  kept us informed and the work was carried out quickly and efficiently with minimal disruption. We would highly recommend . Leon is polite and ensures his client’s needs are meet and that they are satisfied with the work completed.

I was somewhat distressed by a leaky roof in severe rain, but was fortunate to make contact with Leon. He said he was busy and could not do any jobs for the next five weeks, but that he would come round on Saturday to meet and understand the problem. He duly did this, got up on my roof lifted up tiles and checked the membrane, and said it was one broken tile which was the problem. He asked if i had a spare tile. I had one which have been keeping safe for 25 years. He swapped out the broken one on the spot. He did not charge me anything! He is now on speed dial for all my roofing requirements, not because of cost but because he knew exactly what he was doing, a proper professional.

Apex Roofing installed a new rubber bond flat roof to our extension. It was an urgent job as there was a leak internally and it was impressive how quickly and professionally the work was done. The work was of high quality there was no mess left behind. Leon was friendly, courteous and punctual and helpful and willing to advise. I would not hesitate to employ Apex Roofing again, and would recommend them to friends.

Leon, of Apex Roofing, today repaired our roof - 23-01-20. He offers a very friendly and efficient service, explaining what was wrong and tidied up to a high standard. His knowledge of roofing is excellent, as he has been in business for some time. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.

This Company recently replaced our 2 Dormer flat roofs. The job was completed on time and on budget. Leon is clearly a very competent and friendly builder. I would definitely use the Company again.

Leon did an excellent job in re-roofing the flat roof over my front door. Excellent workmanship at a reasonable price.

DB 08 19

I was absolutely delighted with the service I received from Leon at Apex Roofing. I needed guttering replaced and a small roof repair and the end results were excellent. Leon was totally professional, proficient and extremely helpful as he went the extra mile for me when he uncovered a problem whilst working. I would highly recommend Apex Roofing and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

I was impressed with Leon's commitment when I first contacted him as he was prepared to come out on a Sunday to discuss the project. I engaged him to replace a flat roof, and particularly liked the Rubberbond solution as it meant that the wood under the old felt roof did not need to be removed and thrown away. While it did prove necessary to replace a small rotted section which was discovered when the felt covering was removed, this was done at no extra cost. Leon and his team were excellent from start to finish, arriving punctually each day and working late to ensure the roof was completed to deadline. I found Leon and his team very polite, friendly, and hard-working, and I am very pleased with the end result. I would have no hesitation in using them again.

I am very pleased indeed with the roof that Leon has put onto our bespoke lean-to shed on the back of our garage. He has made an unloved, unused, shambolic area into a wonderful dry storage space. I am so grateful. He listened carefully to what I wanted and communicated well over when he was coming to do the work. He has a very pleasant manner and works quickly and thoroughly. His rates are reasonable. Thanks for putting up my bits of shelving as well, Leon. I'd certainly recommend him.

We have no hesitation in recommending Mr Thomas who has repaired /restored our summer house roof which was in a parlous condition.He has done a superb job and most importantly he  communicates very well. He came when he said he would and kept us in touch when he couldn’t. Bravo Apex Roofing 10 out of 10.

JP 11 18

I would fully recommend Apex Roofing. The service was excellent from first contact through to completion. The price was fair and the workmanship excellent.

We had all four of our flat-roof dormers re-roofed in Rubberbond Fleeceback by Leon from Apex Roofing in July 2018. He is a friendly person who carried out the work as promised: neat, on time, with no mess. He provided full specifications in advance and subsequently kept us in the picture regarding the insurance-backed guarantee which was somewhat delayed by QANW (the providers). He waited patiently until the guarantee arrived, before requiring payment. Fully satisfied.

Apex Roofing fixed a leak in our flat roof and we are very pleased with the results. Leon was very helpful and knowledgable when he came round to take a look at the problem and was the only one that could identify where the leak was coming from and the correct repair to it. He offered a good solution to our problem and was available to take on the work within a few days. He was prompt with his quote. On the day of the work being carried out, he arrived on time and worked through the day under very difficult working conditions as it was one of the hottest days of the year. His workmanship is great, he left the place nice and tidy. He was always very polite and professional and it was a pleasure to interact with him. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Apex roofing gave me a competitive price on my flat roof. Leon always turned up on time, was professional, tidy and clean. The end result was just what I wanted. The guttering needed minor correction, however Leon came out at a time to suit me and made good. Would use again without hesitation.

Apex Roofing were great to deal with. I had 3 quotes, Apex price wasn’t the cheapest but I was so impressed with Leon when he visited to quote that I decided to go with him. He talked me through my options, he left me with leaflets on the different types of flat roof choices. He quoted on a number of options. Leon arrived when he said he would, the work was done to a high standard and in a timely fashion. He was extremely tidy and left me with nothing to clear up. It was so nice to interact with a courteous, polite but very professional gentleman who never made me feel anxious or uncomfortable. Thoroughly nice gentleman, who did a great job.

We had a leak in one of our properties which we thought was coming through a flat roof part of the roof. We had three quotes. Leon was the only roofer that took his time and actually worked out where the leak was coming from which was in fact the pitched portion of the roof. We ended up not having the flat roof replaced but had the pitched roof re lined and the existing tiles re-laid. He also re-flashed the chimney and did a small flat roof repair for us. He turned up when he said he would, always left the site clean and tidy and safe. I will have no hesitation using Leon again and will recommend him to any of my friends. Also since the job has been completed I am happy to say we have had some heavy rain and the interior of the property has remained dry.

We needed a new flat roof installed on our property so we got three quotes from various roofers.We decided on using Apex roofing because they stood out from the others not just on their competitive quote but their attitude to their potential clients. From the outset I found Leon very friendly, knowledgable, professional and honest. He advised us of the best option for our roof. Being in the construction industry myself I know when a good job has been done and Leon didn't disappoint. I'm convinced anybody that employs Apex Roofing for their project won't be disappointed either.....

MP 03 16

Apex Roofing did a good job of stripping and reboarding my garage roof, they cleared up afterwards and took away the rubbish. They also covered the flat roof  on my house. I would recommend them.
