A huge thank you for the great job you did with our new roof

We’ve been meaning to write for ages to say a huge thank you for the great job you did with our new roof earlier this year! We are really pleased with the job, thank you.

Pleasant, accommodating and professional

He has been very efficient and quick in carrying out the work. At all times, he has been pleasant, accommodating and professional in his attitude and I can highly recommend him...

Over the moon with the way the new roof has transformed the look and feel of the cottage

As I said to you before if I come across anyone looking to get their roof sorted I will insist that you are their first (and no doubt last) call.

In his work we found him to honest, hard-working and very thorough

He was truly expert in the way he performed his task and was anxious that things were to our satisfaction.

The arty finish on the dorma window leadwork was a surprise that I was very pleased about…

As Dean seems to one of life’s’ rare perfectionists the work he did was efficient, neat and within the time scale he guesstimated, even with the erratic weather!

He re-roofed my bungalow and did an excellent job

Dean, a few years ago, re-roofed my bungalow completely and did an excellent job.  He has also repaired the roof of my conservatory when the people who installed it couldn’t correct the fault

Mr. Baumber’s work has been of a very high standard

In my opinion Mr. Baumber’s work has been of a very high standard, and his charges have been reasonable and readily acceptable.  

He was one of my hand picked team who produced top class artistic lead work

Being asked for a reference to Dean Baumber of Baumbers comes very easy for me, Dean is totally reliable honest and hard working.

He is a joy to have working here, always professional and completely reliable

We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone-should the want excellent work completed in a timely manner that is!

Excellent work and very reasonable prices

He is very honest, completely reliable and has a very respectable name in this area for his professional workmanship.

They are true professionals

The work undertaken on both my home and office was faultless and of the highest quality.

This is the best roof tiling and lead work we have ever seen

Dean is a very reliable and genuine person who cannot leave any job he is doing unless he has given 100% and will not leave it until he is satisfied,

Very professional and a quality tradesman

I find him to be very professsional and a quality tradesman, I would not hesitate to highly recommend him to anyone looking for a roofing contractor.

The prompt response… was excellent

The prompt response by Mr Baumbers to our enquiry for new lead to be fitted to two Dormers was excellent.

Do you need a lead roof specialist?

If you need a lead roof specialist then you need to do a little research. There are many companies out there who claim to be roofers but finding a quality bespoke lead roof specialist is well worth time spent on the search. Such a company is also worth paying that little extra for as after your entire roof is one of the most important aspects of your home. Without a good roof your home might as well be open to the elements and if rain and such can get through, damp will occur as well as damage to the structure of your home and any possessions. Rather than go for the cheapest quote you could be wiser choosing the company based on the service they offer and the advice given when applying for the quote.

The quote should be given in writing after an inspection but you would need to bear in mind that this could differ slightly based on what work has actually got to be carried out once the roofer has got up onto the roof and seen what has to be done. If the underlying structure of the roof needs to be replaced and not just the tiles then of course the quote would work out higher and this would not have been visible before work had begun.

Always beware of any company or roofing contractor that comes with a very low quote for the work. You should be wary as while there could be a legitimate reason for the low quote such as them just starting out in the business and they want to undercut their rivals to ensure they get the job, there could also be other reasons such as the use of low quality materials.

Any work should also come with a guarantee and this should be discussed before giving the company the project. Any ethical company will provide you with a guarantee of some kind if they pride themselves on their work and the materials they use. An established roofing specialist will provide work of the highest possible standards and would back up that work with pride. Where possible ask to see examples of previous work and projects completed, they should not be afraid to provide referrals if you ask. If the company has its own website then also make good use of the vast amount of information you could find by way of articles and the background of the company.

When undertaking any type of work on your home you do have to remember that it is down to you as the owner of the property to get the appropriate planning permission. This would pertain of course to any additions to the home such as loft conversions. A lead roof specialist would normally only undertake any work after you had got the planning permission and the certificate for the work.
