We moved into our lovely French house in January this year. We had not planned on having a new roof, but storms in February and March made our house far less beautiful! The insurance assessor agreed repairs could be made, but advised us to re-roof to avoid the same thing happening again in successive winters. After some research we contacted Malcolm.
Malcolm is blunt and I quickly realised the scale of the problem and the cost. However, he is also very professional and caring and I rapidly developed confidence in his assessment and advice. He was extremely thorough in evaluating the roof and took time measuring accurately and lifting existing tiles to inspect under. Following a wholly itemised quotation, Malcolm came back twice to answer our questions and show us the various problems.
A start date was agreed to fit around the occupancy of our gîte, but bad weather caused a delay. However, Malcolm’s friendly, skilful team worked tirelessly to catch up. As work progressed, further rotten rafters and purlins were discovered. Malcolm ensured we went up onto the roof to inspect the damage, before any decisions were made. Malcolm was the complete professional and he prepared a new quotation later that day. The work finished on time and when the team cleared up, we would have hardly known they had been there.
The new roof not only looks beautiful, enhancing the appearance of the house, but the tiles are interlocked to ensure durability and it has a membrane to safeguard against water ingress. It is a truly amazing feeling to have a secure watertight roof and we now laugh when it rains. The harder the better!
Malcolm and his excellent team, not forgetting Dawn in the office, made this unexpected and costly event in our lives painless and almost pleasurable. We have nothing but praise for all at Strictly Roofing. Without hesitation, we recommend Malcolm and his team for their excellent service, value for money and superb quality.
