Your Roofing Project
We carry out all sorts of roofing projects around Cornwall – from large commercial property roofs to small lean-to roof repairs.
The majority of our work is for the private householder, but everybody gets the same care & attention. In the first instance contact Stuart by ‘phone or e-mail, he can answer any queries then or just make an appointment to call and measure up. Your quotation will then be either e-mailed or posted to you within about one week and you will not be troubled by any follow up calls. If you want the work doing just contact Stuart and he will arrange a date for the work to start.
This page contains information about what we will do to manage your roofing project through to completion, plus a few pointers that will help you.
Dates for the Work
We will agree dates with you and stick to them as far as we possibly can. The main uncertainty is the weather. Naturally you will not want your roof stripped off during heavy rain or high winds. Our prime concern is the health and safety of yourself and our team. If bad weather delays work, we will talk to you and agree revised dates as soon as possible.
Please be assured that, once we start work, your roof will be protected at all times. If we have stripped the roof covering but not finished the replacement, we will put fully weather-proof tarpaulins and other measures in place to prevent any leakage. In a worst case scenario, such as a severe storm, we provide a 24-hour emergency call out service.
We can generally give a start date within a few weeks. Home owners and small businesses are our main customers, so we will not have to ‘fit you in’ around other projects. We can do emergency remedial work very quickly if this is needed.
JS Roofing carries full public liability insurance for your protection. Copies of our policies are available for inspection on request.
We would strongly advise you, however, to contact your house insurance provider before the work starts. Some insurers require you to inform them before any work is done. This is normally a routine matter, but insurance companies like to be informed of any changes to your property.
Planning and Other Consents
Planning permission is not normally needed for roofing projects, unless you are in a conservation area or the property is a listed building. Buildings regs is now mandatory for re-roofing work. Forms can be obtained from your local authority or we can deal with that for you.
We’ve put together a lof of further detail on choosing a roof covering in West Cornwall including possible approaches when you’re dealing with a listed building, in an Article 4 direction area or in a conservation area – or none of the above!
Work will be carried out by our team of trained roofers. All are fully insured and have specialist training. All work will be planned and project-managed by Stuart Meigh, owner of JS Roofing. Our team are a professional and friendly bunch, who will turn up on time and get on with the work, with minimum disturbance to you or your neighbours. They will even supply their own tea and biscuits, additional tea supplies are at your discretion!
If you have any concerns at all during the work you can talk to our team. Alternatively you can call Stuart who will deal with any problems personally.
When the job is finished we will take down the scaffolding, remove all refuse from the site and leave your property in a neat and tidy condition.
All of our workmanship carries a full 10 year guarantee. In the unlikely event of any problems we will put it right at no cost to you.
If you opt for natural slates, these carry a quarry guarantee.
If you choose synthetic slates or tiles, these carry a manufacturer’s guarantee.
If you have any concerns at all about your new or repaired roof, please call us for immediate attention. We value our local reputation above all else and will deal with any problems straight away.
