Yes. We have a bricks-and-mortar showroom and trade counter in Walthamstow where you can come in and view our products. We also have product displays in our showroom so you can see the products in person and get a feel for which one might be best for your project.

No. We only supply the goods. However, if you contact us we can help point you in the right direction of a competent professional roofer who can carry out the work.

The main things to consider when replacing a roof are the following:

Pitch - to determine what products you can use, determining the pitch of your roof will determine what products, supplies and tools you will need.

Planning - you should always determine whether you require local planning permission before starting a new project and if so, ensure the product you wish to use meets the planning requirements applicable.

Weight - The weight of the product determines what structural support may be required depending on which roofing material you want to use. It could mean the difference between choosing a lighter hard metal over a much heavier slate.

Not necessarily. Just because your roof has a leak, does not mean it needs a completely new roof. Depending on the cause of the leak it could be easily fixed by replacing a loose, or broken roof tile or in the case of a flat roof, by patching the bitumen or membrane. Often only an unsafe roof or a complete roof system failure will require a complete re-fit.

Most new roofing systems are designed to be effective for around 20 years. Some roof types such as slate, clay tile, lead and certain metals, can last much longer. But as with all types of roofs, its longevity is governed by the initial quality of the product and fitting, as well as the care and maintenance it receives over time.

Yes. Relatively but not completely. There are guttering systems available that can be fitted with covers to resolve this problem, however, you should still ensure that your gutters are checked and cleaned on a semi-regular basis as leaves and debris can still accumulate over time.

The tools you will need will entirely depend on the type, size and scope of your roofing project. Sure there are some tools that roofers will benefit from across multiple styles of installs but different roofing systems may require different tools for the job. If you are unsure of what tools you need, we recommend coming in to see us or getting in touch with our experienced staff.

Short answer... there isn't just one. The best roofing material will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Consider factors such as climate, budget, and aesthetics when making your decision and which roof system will perform best for your specifications.
