John Allan can install a brand new roof on your home, managing the project from start to finish. We quote, remove the old roof, undertake any remedial roof work, for example, replacing rotten or old wooden rafters and battens, attach new felt insulation and construct the new roof, and build a brand new roof, using our team of highly trained roofers, working in an organised and methodical way, giving you complete peace of mind.

Roof Maintenance is essential, especially if you live in an area where your home is in an exposed location. However, we do recommend calling us for an annual roof check. We can replace any hip tiles or ridge tiles that may have become loose. These are the 'edging' tiles which help to stabilise the whole roof structure when it is being re-built. If any potential problems are found, for example, broken, missing or loose slates or tiles, these can be repaired in a professional and organised way, keeping your home in tip-top condition.

Fancy a new roof?

All different types and colours of slate or tiles can be used, chosen to blend in perfectly with the colour of the bricks or outside colour of the render of your home. We also supply and fit new felt which is under the roofline and this helps with the insulation of your home. Flat roofs, pitched roofs, tiled roofs, slate roofs - we do it all. If you wish us to source reclaimed slate or reclaimed tiles, or to be re-used, we are quite happy for you to request this option, and we will try to source the right colour/shape/design, for example, to blend in with surrounding properties or the landscape.


John was excellent. Work completed to a high standard, on time and on budget. Communication was also excellent, he is easy to get hold of and will always call back promptly. Highly recommended and would definitely use again. Many thanks, Pete

John came around really quickly when we had a leak that suddenly worsened, and spent the best part of a day on the roof with a colleague to replace the lead at the ridge. All good. We paid and asked for a quote for further work, which we never received. When it rained, it leaked just the same. John said he'd deal with it quickly, but then we had two months of missed appointments and poor communication. My last email asked if it would ever get done. No reply. I've now given up and found someone else.
