"We’ve had a great service from S &J Building and Roofing. Lee Shellard came to give us an initial quote himself. We had spoken to other roofing companies however Lee’s honest advice and extensive knowledge impressed us."

Sara Casey


"Recently had a slate roof done in our home, we found their price very competitive, very professional workmanship carried throughout, we are really happy with the outcome and with the 25 year guarantee given. We would definitely recommend & use again. Great work Lee & team."

Maynaz Purnell


"S and J replaced our 1930's semi roof and guttering in January 2018. Ricky and the team were kind, professional, clean, and efficient. The workmanship was excellent and we have had no issues at all since the work was completed 8months ago. The price was very competitive too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and have done on a number of occasions."

Nick Pates


"We would highly recommend Lee and the team. They have just reroofed our house and changed the fascias and pipe work. All work was carried out to a high standard and the team were friendly, polite and best of all tidy, removing all of the debris, sweeping up after themselves on a daily basis."
