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.

Are you looking for a roofing contractor?

Your home is your biggest investment and it can quickly deteriorate and lose value if your roof is in disrepair. Your roof has to put up with a lot; it stands many years of high winds, gales, torrential rain, sleet and snow. Even if you are lucky enough to get through a storm without losing your tiles and ridge tiles then over the years the weather and elements are sure to do damage, over time. Often unless you pay close attention to your roof you will never know that damage has occurred, unless of course tiles have come crashing to the ground. Therefore taking the time to check your roof from time to time will pay dividends. If you do find damage the sooner you have it repaired the better and the more money you will save in the long run. Paying out for a reputable roofing contractor will also be to your benefit, have your roof fixed on the cheap and you could have to payout time and time again.

One of the signs that there are problems with your roof is evidence of damp and mould. If you see any water marks or stains on the walls then this could point to the fact that you have a leak in your roof. Should you leave this then damp will spread and could damage walls and beams in your home. It could also spread to your belongings. All of this could be stopped in its tracks by finding a roofing contractor and having your roof fixed at the first signs of damage and disrepair.

Of course the type of home you live in and the type of roof you have would have to be given some thought as roofers will usually specialise in different areas. If you were to choose a company and they were not up to the job you could find shoddy work which of course would have to be re-done and this would be added cost. You should therefore ask many questions of your roofer before taking them on. Some could, for example, specialise in lead roofs, some could work with farmhouse or church roofs.

Some could specialise in more than one area. Never be afraid to ask for referrals or to see a portfolio of work they have already completed.

Any good craftsman of quality would have no worries about showing you work and projects they have completed.

As your home is your biggest outlay you want to ensure that your home and your roof will be in good hands. You should therefore check to ensure that any contractor you are considering taking on is a member of the NFRC; this is the National Federation of Roofing Contractors. All ethical and quality craftsmen will be a member of the NFRC as this is one of the largest trade associations in the United Kingdom. Any company who is registered with them will be fully insured so you have peace of mind that they will offer high standards of workmanship.
