Latest Reviews and Feedback

The guys did an excellent job. We had a bit of a crisis with water leaking through the roof and down a wall on a Saturday night and Ben came over on the Sunday morning to help effect emergency repairs, before re-jigging his scheduled to get the bulk of the work done on the Monday. I particularly liked the fact that they took photos of each stage of the work to show how the repairs had been effected without me needing to scramble onto the roof or be in attendance for the duration of the repairs.

My roof needed repairs to a missing tile and loose ridge tiles. The work was done very efficiently and the guys who did it were friendly, polite and also helpful to the questions I asked. The quote I was given was very reasonable and the process was very professional. I am very pleased with the job done, these guys were excellent and I would highly recommend them.

Ben and his team did an excellent job replacing the valleys at the front of our property. Skilled and friendly workmen. I would definitely use their service again.

CB 02 21

Missing tile after strong winds and with further major storm coming was very concerned about rain damage. Ben was contacted on a Friday and came out same day to assess and give reassuring advice on weather risk. Ben arranged for colleague to fix roof and colleague was there 8am on Monday to repair, which he did in mere minutes. Very courteous and friendly team, fair prices and efficient! Would definitely use again for other jobs.

Benjamin James Roofing Limited replaced our tiled roof. Great company led by Ben, always informed what was going on, made a few changes throughout and always happy to help. I would definitely recommend them to anyone having roofing work.

Ben phoned at 0845 on a fine October day that was sandwiched between days that were hopeless for outdoor working. He predicted his team would arrive late morning, and it did. The two-man team parked their vehicle on my drive giving them easy access to tools and materials. Work included replacing a top tile on the verge of a single storey pitched roof. The tile had slipped from beneath lead flashing. All the mortar was replaced at the verge and the tile fixed. From my layman's point of view the trickier task was a long run of guttering draining the same pitched roof, and a flat garage roof. That guttering included an inside right angle and an outside right angle with two different gutter profiles; which had been leaking where they met. In all there were about 10 metres of guttering, and a downpipe to replace. All the work was clean, neat and well finished in a little more than three hours. The team worked quietly and took away all the old guttering, leaving the area tidy - as if no-one had been working here; even some fallen leaves had gone. From the comprehensive documentation accompanying the quotation to the quality of the professional workmanship, I am pleased to recommend Benjamin James Roofing Ltd.

Rubber roof to our cabin. The service we received was excellent. Ben was punctual, quick and polite, excellent service and finished (very happy) to a high standard.

LN 03 18

Really good job done with a minimum of fuss; some work that needs doing on the roof has been photographed so we can see for ourselves that it does need doing - well done.

TC 03 18

I had a leak from the roof, Ben came out within a day and surveyed the roof and then provided a quote and an agreed date to undertake the work. The work consisted of replacing the concrete valley with dry fibre glass tray (valley) and to re-cut and lay the tiles back into the close mitred valley tray. Ben was very courtesy, the job was clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

The waiting time was not long and I was kept informed all the way through, from what the job consisted of, to materials used etc. All was planned to coincide with the job, ie, scaffolding up, then skip etc. The job was carried out without delays and all was tidy upon completion. Very professional work and conduct.

I called Ben out to fix a downpipe from the gutter that have come off loose at the joint. He was incredibly professional and trustworthy. He fixed the problem, taking the time to explain how it had happened and provided me with solutions. I would highly recommend him. 

VJ 08 15

Ben did extensive works to our roof.  The work was very satisfactory.  Ben arrived on time and on the day we required him.  All the rubbish was taken away leaving our property clean and tidy.  He was always polite and kept us informed to the extent of works and how he would achieve the best results. 

We shall use his services again when required.

FW 01 14

Mr Charlton was recommended to me by a friend to carry out some maintenance on my guttering and flat roof.  He was punctual, friendly and polite.  He did an excellent job and I would certainly use him again in the future.

NG 01 14

Ben was highly recommended to me as someone who would willingly take on the 'small' task of replacing one ridge tile which had come down during the high winds experienced in the autumn.  I accepted his prompt quote and within a very short time the job was completed.  Whilst on the roof Ben observed that several of the ridge tiles would soon need attention and I was happy for him to give me an estimate.  This again was very acceptable and the work was completed to my satisfaction as soon as he could fit me in among his more urgent work. 

On each of his visits Ben acted with complete professionalism in both his manner and the way in which the work was carried out.

JL 01 14

Ben worked with AJH Roofing when I was having my roof completely done.  He was brilliant, respectful, clean and professional.  The work was second to none and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

GA 08 14

Ben worked with AJH Roofing when I was having my roof completely done he was brilliant like my recommendation of AJH Roofing, respectful, clean and the work was second to none.. everyone comments on the roof and for 2 young lads they are extremely professional respectful, I would have no hesitation at all recommending Ben or AJH to anyone, I do projects at Heathrow and know good work and good workers.
