    Hi

    I wonder if someone could help me. I just noticed a damp patch in my ceiling and I need someone to come and have a look at the roof. Can anyone recommend a good roof repair company?

    Thanks

    David

    Hi,

    I’ve recently moved house and used this section quite extensively for finding various trades and thought I’d recommend the ones that I’ve used so far. We’re in the middle of an extensive renovation in Cathcart so I’ll add more as I encounter them…!

    Moving – Express Removals
    0141 339 6000 (I think it was Ken we spoke to)
    http://www.expressremovals.co.uk/
    Very professional and “can do” throughout the move. We got a few quotes for moving and they were by far the cheapest, most proactive and easiest to work with. Everything was expertly packed (not a single breakage!) and delivered. Highly recommended.

    Plasterers – Jamieson Plasterers
    0141 956 1061 (we dealt with Adrian)
    Very competitive price, excellent work, always quickly returned calls (a rarity in plasterers, I’ve found…!). We were able to get a quick turn around with them and have been very pleased with their work.

    Roofing – Newlands Roofing
    0800 783 3691
    Competitive quote, quick turn around and, most importantly, our roof no longer leaks.

    Damp Proofing – Advanced Preservation Specialists
    http://www.advancedpreservation.co.uk/
    0141 445 5544
    Thorough assessment and clear report, carried out work quickly.

    Electrician – Home Glow
    http://www.home-glow.co.uk/
    01236 707600
    We struggled to get hold of an electrician to fit some more sockets round the house and a new consumer unit. Most said it was too small a job for them. Home Glow were OK, did a good job and were able to get to us pretty quickly but I suspect it was at quite a premium. I’d probably try to get some more quotes in the future though, just to compare.
