Specialist Roofing Contractors in the South West
West Country Tiling Company are specialist roofing contractors from Somerset in the South West of England. We provide an expert range of roofing services to our clients including roof tiling, roof slating, roof repairs and roof maintenance.
We have significant experience of working with the following roof coverings: Cotswold stone slates, Collyweston stone slates, Hamstone slates, Purbeck stone slates, clay and concrete plain tiles, Welsh slate, Spanish slate, Delabole slate, Westmorland slate, Burlington slate, man-made slates, Cedar and Oak shingles, Clay Pantiles, Clay Double Roman tiles and Lead.
All of our master craftsmen have served a formal apprenticeship in roof slating and tiling. Once this three year training has been completed, they continue their on-site development working under an experienced master craftsman for several years. During this period they will attend two residential lead-working courses run by the Lead Sheet Association to develop these skills.
We prefer our master craftsmen to take ownership of the roof that they are working on and that can only be achieved if they have carried out all of the work – carpentry, roofing and leadwork. This also avoids any overlap of different trades work which can often cause potential weak areas on the roof.
Once these first six years of their training have been completed they will often choose a speciality roof covering, for example stone slate roofing, and we can then continue their development in this skillset.
We have a very good record of long-term employees so that we can establish not only excellent site practises but also decent site behaviour – something that is very important for our clients.
This excellence on site is backed up by a professionally operated company with in-house Health & Safety specialists to ensure that your project runs without a hitch.
The earlier we are able to start the planning and preparation means the smoother the project can run. So please feel free to contact us to discuss any aspect of your potential project.
