Pickapro.ie - Customer Testimonial by Robert Cousins from Dublin 3
When was the work done?At the start of January 2012.
What was involved?A chimney reconstruction. It was an old chimney, the bricks were shot and the chimney was cracked. I thought first it just needed to be repointed but I had learnt that it actually needed to be rebuilt.
Why did you choose Top Grade Roofing?I spotted Top Grade on pickapro.ie. I had been in contact with several roofers, but they were slow to come out and do the job. On the top of that, they were all varying between repointing and rebuilding and nobody seemed to know exactly what to do with it. I picked Top Grade first of all on the basis of locality. I liked what I saw on their website too so I checked a couple of their references. That was it – they seemed to be very professional. I liked their positivity and their knowledge of what had to be done, I felt comfortable with them.
Had you definite idea's in mind before you talked to Ian?I wanted the chimney resealed first, I also wanted it to look the same as it had looked before the rebuild. The house is 150 years old so I wanted the new chimney to fit in with the other chimneys on the road. And I wanted to have the top covered with a cowl.
Did Ian introduce new ideas?Top Grade Roofing certainly knew what they were talking about, far more than anybody else I talked to. They were very clear about the work that needed to be done.
