Prompt response, arrived to look at job when he said, gave a thorough account of what needed done, we agreed a price. The next fine day he arrived early with another worker and job done before end of day. Prompt, efficient, professional and reliable. My old cast iron guttering now looks like new and doesn't leak....hurray! Thanks James.

We’ve been restoring a house in Cumbria and over the years we’ve had tradespeople from across the spectrum. I can comfortably say that Jim and his team are in the very top of the list in terms of quality, price and service. They did a flat roof for us, some lead work and a variety of other external work, all of the highest quality. If Jim provides the service, you need look nowhere else. We’d trust him with any job, large or small.

Jim and Chris recently carried out outstanding work to our fibreglass roof on a listed building. We were delighted with the standard of workmanship, service, communication and the 25 year guarantee. The work was carried out in a timely and professional manner and was also reasonable in terms of cost. We were lucky to get some dry weather and guys that really know what they are doing. Thanks Jim, much appreciated! I will recommend you to family, friends and anyone I come across!
