Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 93%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Customer Review
 
I have a traditional bungalow which required replacement sofits, gutters and downpipes.

"Kevin Aitken roofing provided a written quote which was detailed and explained the work to be done and itemised the costs of labour and material for each part of the work. The quote was very competitive. The work was carried out over several days with a full squad turning out each day. The work was completed to a high standard, on schedule and for the price quoted.
I also had some slate work carried out which was attended to within a few days of contacting Kevin and again was very reasonably priced.
I would have no hesitation recommending Kevin Aitken Roofing."

Hi Kevin Aitken Roofing recently carried out major work at my property in Newmilns East Ayrshire. We had our roof replaced and rendering to 3 sides of our house. I had my full roof replaced , with lead coverings to the valleys, dormas, new guttering and fascia boards.

"All areas were tidied and power washed afterwards
Although the team had awful weather conditions to deal with the outcome was amazing.
I would recommend Kevin Aitken Roofing to anyone who wants a great job with very competitive prices, thanks to Kevin and his team
Excellent experience from the team"
