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.

Think your roof might need work?

Of course, things like condensation can sometimes confuse the issue. Look for any staining that has dark rings around the edges – this is more often than not a sign of a roof leak, where the rings have come from traces of asphalt.

Sadly, many people do not closely pay attention to their roof and only realise that they have a problem when damage has been done. Checking your roof over internally and externally on a regular basis, is a good habit to get in to.

If you see a problem with your roof, you’ll probably do best to call in a roofing specialist rather than try and tackle the job yourself. As mentioned before, patching things up can ever be a temporary thing.  And doing this could overall cost you more in decor and structure repairs than if you’d simply had the roof repaired or replaced at the first sign of trouble!

It is definitely worth spending a little time finding the right person to do the job for you. As discussed before, roofers may have one area that they particularly specialise in, such as being a lead roof specialist; a slate roof specialist; or one who does listed building roofing. Maybe you live in a farm house. To re-roof or repair a farm house roof will need a different type of roofer who only works with tiles, for example. Each roof type, whether it be that of a church, a listed building or a traditional two up two down home, will need a different type of expertise. You need to match your roofing contractor to your needs.

Don’t be afraid to ask to see the roofer’s credentials – after all, your home will literally be in his hands.

Also check that your roofing specialist has valid insurance. This protects you both should something go wrong (for example, he causes damage to your property accidentally). It means that he is fully covered and you are fully protected.
