Strictly roofing did a fantastic job replacing our roof, the initial quote was competitive, Malcolm and his son came to measure and we were impressed with their professional attitude, answering all our questions and concerns.

The job was started on time, Malcolm and his team worked tirelessly stripping the old tiles, we were impressed with their work ethic and rate of progress. Malcolm bought any issues to our attention and made recommendations to solve problems, his experience was without question, so we happily went with his solutions! The roof is now finished and we are very pleased with the job. The site was cleared as requested and Malcolm ensured we were happy before leaving.

Malcolm also replaced the guttering on the roof in zinc, there was a slight leak on this and Malcolm sent someone to fix this the day after he was aware, so we are also very impressed with his support after the completed job – all in all we we would not hesitate in recommending Strictly Roofing.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to both yourself and Malcolm for the way you have conducted the work on my french property. Two years ago I engaged Malcolm to carry out repairs to one of my roofs. As is typical with french properties you are not always sure what will be revealed after providing the estimate.

Malcolm carried out the work in a very friendly but professional manner. Although the work was much more difficult and challenging than first anticipated, Malcolm kept me up to date with developments and discussed the various solutions. At the completion of the work I was more than pleased with the results.

When I had a problem with a second roof I had no hesitation contacting Malcolm to carry out the work. Malcolm surveyed the roof and gave advice of what was required. Once again the service and eventual work carried out to replace completely this second roof was outstanding. And you Dawn the Admin Manager, was above and beyond helpful and was largely responsible for the work being carried out in the first place, advising me how to navigate the french system with authorisation and form filling.

The work was completed this week March 2019 and once again I am pleased with the results. I would urge anyone who requires roofing work on their property to contact Strictly Roofing with Malcolm Cooke. You will not be disappointed with the service or quality of work along with the help and friendliness. Anyone who wishes to contact me for verification are free to do so.

Malcolm was one of 3 companies we had to quote for our roof. We chose Malcolm due to his professional attitude, efficiency, courtesy and itemised quote. He and his team worked diligently and informed us of any ‘problems’ that were not in the original quote. e.g. rotten rafters/purlins that could not be seen at the initial survey.

As we were not at the house during some of the period of work, photos were forwarded to us on a regular basis letting us know how the work was progressing. Malcolm also phoned regularly to update us – a nice touch. Work was carried out during February and therefore you are governed by the weather to a certain degree. However the work was completed within the time scale Malcolm originally said it would take.

At the conclusion of the work the inside of the house was cleaned and dusted – again a nice touch. The house now looks superb with the new tiles which are interlocked and secured to the rafters – together with the membrane to help stop water ingress. It is reassuring to know that we can now look forward to many years at the house with a secure roof. A blessing indeed.

If you do decide to employ Malcolm then you will also be in contact with Dawn – Malcolm’s financial expert who again was very professional and efficient. We have no hesitation in recommending Strictly Roofing should you be in the position of requiring a new roof.

I would recommend Strictly Roofing. They were a friendly team and Malcolm made me feel that I could trust his expertise. They gave me a reasonable quote and, once we’d sorted through the French bureaucracy, they were good to their word, keeping me updated through the project. The end product is a fabulous new roof with a 10 year guarantee!  I gladly recommend them to anyone in France that needs their roof repaired or replaced.

Our thanks to Malcolm and his team for their excellent work in re-roofing our house.  Despite the terrible weather conditions in January, with the rain, wind and cold, they were still able to finish the job ahead of schedule.  During the wet periods they made sure the roof was watertight and on completion tidied up the garden and even cleaned out the gutters. Thanks to Dawn on admin.  It was nice to have things explained in English as it made it so much easier  to complete any French forms. We are delighted with our new roof and would have no hesitation in recommending Strictly Roofing to anyone who is in need of roofing.

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.

We would like to commend Malcolm and his merry men who finished in record time, much to the surprise of the locals. The place was left clean and tidy and we are absolutely delighted with the result. We will recommend you to anyone else that needs any roofing done.

Due to problems we were having with our roof we decided to ask Strictly Roofing (Malcolm) to assess the problem and advise as to resolution. His response in terms of speed, clarity and cost was exemplary. He was prepared to advise and explain, very helpful in every possible way.

Compliments and thanks are also due to Dawn – in the office. Need one say more.

We initially approached Malcolm for a quotation for repair to the roof on our main house and on his first visit to investigate he advised us that the tiles were at the end of life and even showed me the extent of the initial problem. On starting the work further issues were discovered caused by the previous owners when they converted the loft area to accommodation and Malcolm kept us fully appraised of the additional work that would be required. Malcolm even incorporated addition work with the installation of two new Velux windows that we acquired while the work was being undertaken. His team worked tirelessly even in wet weather and on finishing the work the site was tidied up and little evidence of them being there was left other than the new roof.
