I am very pleased to provide a reference for the work you undertook in reroofing my house recently.
This was a large job involving completely stripping the old roof off, repairing timbers where necessary, installing insulation where possible, replacing one Velux window and installing an additional one (both to conservation standard), lead work over an arched dormer window, replacing a flat roof area, repointing a chimney stack, and repairing some parts of my wood guttering and soffits.
All this work was undertaken to my complete satisfaction, tidily, to budget and to our agreed timetable.
The result is excellent. The house looks much better as a result of this work and the insulation has made a great difference to the heat retention in the house.
I have no hesitation in recommending you and the work you have done for me

Thank you very much for a job well done, quickly & efficiently & with the minimum of mess and disruption.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you, and your work to others.
Recently I needed to have a leaking tiled roof stripped and rebuilt, so in addition to a number of other companies, I contacted Mr Eshelby for advice and to give me a quote.
Finally, I selected Paul Eshelby Roofing for a number of reasons: Mr Eshelby returned my call the same day and came to see the roof quickly. He listened carefully to my explanation of the problems and proposed an appropriate repair scheme.
His quotation was also a fair price for the work needed. He had sufficient confidence in his work to give a guarantee and is a member of the Confederation of Roofing Contractors – which demands continued high standards from its members. Most importantly, Mr Eshelby impressed me as being professional, responsive and sincere – something some other much larger and well known Sheffield roofing companies failed to do!
On completion of the work, I was very pleased with the choice. Mr Eshelby:
- Communicated well throughout – letting us know what he was doing at all times.
- Arrived on the day he said he would and never let us down throughout
- Was well organised and had pre-arranged the delivery of the materials he needed.
- Was cheerful and very pleasant to have working on our premises – working in a way which accommodated our needs and minimised disruption to us.
- Was flexible in accommodating the need to have an Architect inspect the roof timbers once the roofing felt had been removed. He then adapted his plan of work to accommodate an unforeseen repair, without delaying the job.
- Made efforts to obtain the best matching tiles available without buying new.
- Most importantly, he completed the work to a high standard throughout.Finally his invoice fairly reflected to work done.
I strongly recommend Paul Eshelby’s company – my experience was a very good one!
I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Paul Eshelby.Jo Hookway
We have had a number of problems with the guttering on our Victorian house. Paul came to advise and gave an extremely competitive quotation for the work.
In the time leading up to the work being done, Paul was very helpful, approachable and accommodating. We had to negotiate with our neighbours because the scaffolding had to go onto their land and our guttering abuts theirs, and Paul was very understanding of the issues arising from this.
Our neighbours were very complimentary about the work that Paul did. Paul completed the work within the time quoted and did a thorough job.
While he was on site, he also fixed another problem and the price he charged for that was very fair indeed.
I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Paul for the excellent quality of his work and for his approachability, efficiency and reliability. I do not think I could have found anyone better to do the work for us.
Mr Eshelby’s roofing business was highly recommended to me, by some of my colleagues at work.MJ Evers
Having surveyed the state of the roof on our home, a detailed and clear quotation was submitted in a timely manner. The pricing in our opinion, seemed to be reasonable, having obtained two other quotations.
We were pleased and impressed with Mr Eshelby’s level of communication by telephone. He kept us advised of the timing of the work being undertaken. Also he helped us select the type of tiles to suit the property and provided samples.
We have had the rear of the roof re-tiles, overlooking the back garden and were not pushed by Mr Eshelby into having the whole roof completely retiled which he agreed, was not necessary.
The work was finished in an efficient and careful manner, without any damage to our property. Mr Eshelby’s team of workers are a credit to him.
The invoice which we received reflected fairly, the contents of the original quotation.
My wife and I thoroughly recommend “Paul Eshelby Roofing” to you.
