When was the work done?Ian has been doing work for us for about four years now .
What was involved?We’re a construction company so the work can vary from project to project. We generally have a lot of copper work and slating. Ian covers every aspect of roofing really, so that’s a major plus when we call him to quote for work.
Why did you choose Top Grade Roofing?I first met Ian through the golden pages when we were looking to get some copper work to be formed and installed on a dome structure roof we had constructed in Rathgar in Dublin. We had got a few quotes for the work, in fairness Ian’s estimate was not the cheapest but the architect on site was so specific on how the copper detail and finish was to be formed and fitted, after going through all the estimates we were more comfortable choosing Ian as his was by far the most compressive and detailed. After seeing the finish and craftsmanship of the work he carried out for us on that project we would find it very difficult to replace him for any another roofer.
Did Ian introduce new ideas?Yes, in most situations we have a detailed schedule of materials and our expected time frames. The thing with Ian is he is up to date with new roofing techniques and materials. His skills benefits us greatly on site introducing new products and his experience with roofing suppliers is also a key factor.
How did the project run?Ian has always been on time and on budget with us. The key element about Ian is that he gives us a fixed price quotation. On occasions we have had to get a few quotations from other roofing firms which quoted for the project and left the book open for unforeseen problems. This usually means a price increase during the project process and requires us to go back to our client with problems. With Ian this is never an issue we have to address.
What was the biggest benefit to you of choosing Top Grade Roofing?Reliability, performance and a competitive quote. It shows in Ian’s workmanship, his attention to detail and his can do attitude says it all.
