After a few months of unkept promises, and only after I'd left a negative review here on bestofbury because of his lack of response and repeated failure to do the work when he said he would, Dale eventually came and replaced the leadwork in my stone guttering with rubber. To be fair, he did say when he originally came out to assess the job that it might take a few attempts and he might have to come out and re-seal it. When he eventually turned up to do the work, he made it obvious he would rather be somewhere else - surly attitude, like I was an inconvenience rather than a customer. His assistant/apprentice was very pleasant though. He did the work, then tried to quibble over the price (which we'd agreed in writing at his first visit) A few weeks later we had a moderate downpour and a fair bit of wind. Not only did the guttering leak but a fair section of the front row of tiles had slipped - tiles that I assume he had had to lift up, as they covered part of the guttering. I contacted Dale by WhatsApp and sent him photos, and he said he'd come back out and take a look - initially he said this would be at some point in between xmas and new year, he then, when I'd heard nothing from him so contacted him again after new year, he said he would come out when the weather improved. That was over three months ago. The weather has improved, but not a peep from him since then. I've had to have the guttering re-done (and the slates replaced/refitted) by another roofer, but I'm left with a stain down the front of the house where it was leaking. So, as long as you don't expect him to do the work with any urgency, or to keep his promise and come back and rectify any issues, Dale's your man.
Thanks Dale for coming to my rescue and repairing the roof on one of my tenanted properties. Dale assessed the damage and gave me a full report with a very reasonable quote to put it right. He completed the work on time, I would highly recommend him and his services. Thanks again Dale
Dale and jamie have not long just finished doing our garage roof - we had so many issues with leaks ect.
The service they have provided from start to finish was exellent and me and my partner are extremely happy with our new flat roof :) thanks again lads.

After previous roofers failed to repair my roof after 3 attempts and charging me money each time they came and still did not solve the problem I was so upset then Ramsbottom roofing came to my rescue and was recommended by my son in law And solved the problem quickly and efficiently I can’t tell you how grateful I was and I can say how professional and honest this roofer is and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, if you need work doing on your roof give him a call you won’t be disappointed
A friendly service from start to finish. All work was completed in a timely manner & high standard. I was kept informed at all stages of the work. He is punctual and all work was done in a tidy manner. I would recommend to friends & family.

Dale repaired my leaking roof with a friendly and professional approach. Also carried out work for my two next door neigbours
Fixed price with no hidden extras so I knew exactly what I was paying. Would highly recommend this service.
Dale replaced both our front and back dormer roofs with Firestone rubber and did an excellent job (looking at the photographic evidence he supplied), and all at a very reasonable cost. He's a very friendly chap, turns up when he says he will and very professional. Would highly recommend.
Dale removed and replaced all of our guttering. He did a great job for a very reasonable price. He also replaced a couple of broken tiles and cleaned the fascias which were filthy because of the previous faulty gutters. Would definitelty recommend him and would certainly use him again for any roofing issues.
Dale was great, he got back to me really quick and did the job the next day for a very reasonable price. Absolutely would recommend, great service. I had someone round before l got in touch with Dale and wish l had found his details first because the difference in service and finish of the job, was the difference between night and day. I will definitely use Dale again for any roofing/gutter issues in the future, fantastic job cheers
Dale repaired a flat roof, replacing rotten wood and Upvc facia boards. He was professional from start to finish and I am very happy with the result.I would not hesitate in recommending Ramsbottom roofing.
Reply from Ramsbottom Roofing: Thank you for your review
Great job done on the chimney. Dale knew what is was and came back the next and spend some time on the roof fixing the issue. Whilst looking at the roof he found a few other issues which he fixed for a reasonable price. I think he did a great job and was upfront about the cost before work started which I always like. I would defiantly recommend. Friendly guy as well. 5 stars..... Thank you!!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Dale of Ramsbotom Roofing. He is very efficient and very reliable and tidy.
Very tidy work.
Nothing is too much trouble, have had the rest now I've got the best!
