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.

What to look for in a slate roof specialist

Whether you are looking for a slate roof specialist to extensively repair a roof; provide you with a brand new roof; or just repair one or two missing slates, you need someone who can provide you with quality craftsmanship. Your home is your biggest investment and your roof is everything – if it becomes damaged due to storms, winds, rain or snow then it is essential that you have it repaired as soon as possible. If not, you could find yourself in a home that is unliveable.

A damaged slate roof means water would get into your home. If water gets in, this often leads to unsightly brown water marks and, much more disturbingly, mould and rot. If the whole roof structure in your loft becomes damaged then your home would become unsafe. Damp and mould can spread and it could reach your belongings which of course would be impossible to repair. You could lose many treasured items that have been acquired over the years. Of course damage to slates also means that your family and anyone else in the vicinity of your home is at risk of falling debris.

It is important that you match your roofer to your needs. For example, to re-roof or repair a farm house roof will need a different type of roofer to one of only works with slate tiles, for example. Each roof type needs a different type of expertise.

When choosing a slate roof specialist, there are certain things that you can do to ensure that you find the right person for the job:

  • Do not be afraid to enquire as to what work they have completed in the past and how many years the company has been doing business.
  • Ask them if they do specialise in slate roofing as it is essential that you have a contractor who is used to working with slate materials. Not all materials and slate times are the same and you do not want inferior or the wrong sized slates on your roof.
  • Also ask the contractor what warranty they give for their work and materials. A good contractor would provide you with a guarantee that is backed.
  • Finally, do not be shy – ask to see the roofer’s credentials. Remember, our home will literally be in his hands.

In summary, without a good roof over your home to protect it you could lose everything within it if the worst case scenario were realised.  So paying out for a good contractor is a must. Never be tempted to cut corners when it comes to your slate roof, without using a slate roof specialists, you could be taking a huge risk and may be let down with shoddy workmanship.

Your home is your single largest investment so you need nothing less than a qualified slate roof specialist when it comes to the repairing or relaying of a new roof.
