Nice to deal with. Very straight forward and good advice. Professional finish. Would highly recommend
I recently used James to reline & construct new chimney . Found his service & workmanship excellent . Top quality materials used with very clean finish . He is well up with current standards & I would highly recommend in the future .
James repaired a roof for us on a rental property in Gorey in October. James arrived promptly at the agreed time to inspect the roof. He gave us comprehensive details of our options and a detailed estimate. James started the work on the agreed date and stayed with the job until it was finished, even working into the public holiday weekend. He kept us fully informed as the work progressed by phone and by sending photographs. The work involved some work on our neighbours roof and James worked without disrupting our neighbour or the tenant. From this experience I would recommend James for roof repairs. Michael Carolan
