Abbey Roofing diagnosed and repaired my leaking roof. I found the staff to be very polite, clean and tidy. The repair was done promptly, and was inspected the following day to ensure there was no weather damage as there had been heavy rain. The photographs showed the neat lead work done to weather-proof the chimney, which has hopefully cured the problem. I am happy to recommend Abbey Roofing.
I would be very happy to recommend Abbey Roofing and will certainly be in touch again as our renovations progress. Your staff were polite and professional and I especially appreciated the care and courtesy shown to our neighbours. We really did need our neighbours’ co-operation with our works and your staff were helpful and respectful throughout. I was also very pleased with the accuracy of your original estimate – never easy with an old property like this! The work required, time it would take and costs were all exactly as suggested. I was nervous about the cost and the disruption but everything went so smoothly – I needn’t have worried at all!
Client in Chipping Norton Oxfordshire
Abbey Roofing recently replaced the original slates on my Victorian house in north London. The work involved installing a new vapour barrier, timber battens, Spanish slates and leadwork. I am delighted with the standard of workmanship, and now have a new roof to last another 100 years. I was also very pleased with the speed with which the work was carried out, and the hard work and friendliness of the Abbey staff.

As first-time buyers of Abbey Roofing Contractors’ services, we were impressed both by the quality of advice we received, both at the outset and as worked progressed to shore up an ageing roof, and by the exceptionally high standard of workmanship. We may now no longer need to replace the roof, so robust has been the work to restore it. We would use Abbey Roofing Contractors Ltd again without question, should the need arise, and can recommend them highly.
My wife and I repeat that we are very pleased with the quality of your roofing work and just this week we gave a glowing reference to someone who asked for your company name, given the good quality work Abbey Roofing did on our house.

In my capacity as Church Warden for St. Mary’s Church, Longworth I am pleased to recommend the services of Abbey Roofing Contractors following the work which was recently undertaken to replace and repair the Cotswold stone roof on one elevation of the Chancel and the Vestry alongside. The work was undertaken to a high standard, there was regular communication throughout, both parts of the Contract were completed on time and the additional costs kept to an absolute minimum. As the Project Supervisor it was a pleasure to work with Mr Baker and his team.
