    Recently, we and our upstairs neighbours had a wall of our house re-pointed, along with chimney and roof repairs, carried out by Traditional Roofing and Building. Because our house is a listed building, we needed to be certain that any work done would be to the standards required for such a property. We requested estimates from a number of firms for this job, although two sets of relatives had already used Traditional Roofing and Building within the past few years and were very satisfied with the work completed. We were impressed by the specific detail about work needed, quantity, etc. in the estimate from Traditional Roofing and Building. Although their estimate was not the cheapest, we decided to contract that company. We were impressed by the openness and transparency of their work and communication, including an invitation to go up on the scaffolding to look at the work being done. Scott kept us up-to-date with the progress for the work and was always willing to answer specific questions. We consider that the company’s work was done reliably and to a high standard. The workmen were cheerful and pleasant, seemed to work well as a team and to take a pride in their work. We were particularly impressed by the end-of-job inspection by Scott to check that all the work had been completed to the standards required. All in all, we would be happy to use this firm again and intend to do so for the next stage of work for our building.
