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.

Ensure roof repairs are completed by a specialist roofing contractor

Your roof is the most important part of your home. Without a good sturdy and strong roof your home would be open to the elements, even the smallest of roofing problems can cause a great deal of trouble which could lead to expense and misery. At the first sign of any roofing problems you should seek the advice and help a good quality craftsman for your roof repairs.

Of course there are many different types of roof –  yours could be the traditional tiled roof, a conservation property, or it could be a farm house roof. When looking for a specialist contractor it is essential that you find one that can undertake the work you need. You should ask to see a portfolio of previous work that has been undertaken and get to know how long the roofer had been in the business. Any quality craftsman will be pleased to give you references and be proud to show you examples.

There are many contractors out there but not all have the same expertise. One of the ways you can be sure that you have a high quality craftsman is if they are a member of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors. The NFRC are one of the UKs largest associations and any roofing contractor who is a member will be fully insured and will follow a very strict code of practise when it comes to health and safety. Of course they will be fully qualified to take on any roof repairs, although some roofers will specialise in certain areas.

There could be roofing contractors that deal specifically in businesses or domestic, others could specialise in farmhouses and churches or they may provide services for lead work and heritage roofing. Some may offer a wide variety of services.

You should always be safety conscious when it comes to checking your roof. Checking out the roof through binoculars is a great idea and if necessary you can use ladders to get closer. However if you are in any doubt about safety then call in a specialist and allow them to do the check for you, you should never climb up onto the roof as it might not be safe.

When making an inspection you should keep an eye out for missing tiles and any loose or cracked ones. Also check the ridge tiles to ensure that they have not been damaged as these can cause enormous damage if they were to come crashing down in the next storm.

You can also check into your loft, look to see if there are any signs of leaks and water damage in the loft area. If there is then this could be a good sign that your shingles are cracked, broken or damaged. If you were to leave the problem then it would almost certainly get a great deal worse and this could mean not only your home suffering damage but you would also be risking the health and safety of your family and other people. Roof repairs should be undertaken as soon as damage is spotted.
