Excellent service. Wanted to diagnose the cause of the leak so it could be repaired as needed without carrying out unnecessary work at additional cost. Photos showed the cause and the remedial action needed clearly explained. Very professional and good value for money. (Reviewed June 2022)
Very happy with the guttering and porch ceiling replacement (Reviewed May 2022)
Fair pricing and only recommended works which were necessary. Adjusted quote downwards when less work required on closer inspection after job started. Standard of work was good as were response times and customer courtesy. (Reviewed May 2022)
When I first contacted Ben regarding the storm damage to my roof, he was very polite and helpful. He came round the same day to quote for the work needed. He also kept me fully updated. The repairs carried out were to a high standard. (Reviewed May 2022)
Ben was very helpful and friendly, came next day to look at my guttering and knew straight away what the problem was. Returned following week and replaced my gutter. Left no mess and paid as quoted. Gutter looks great. Would recommend. (Reviewed May 2022)
Ben and team provided an excellent service from estimate, through scaffolding to completion of the repairs to our chimney. The amiable team left the site spotlessly clean on completion of the work. Would highly recommend (Reviewed April 2022)
Ben has carried out work on one of the verges for me before and did a marvellous job.
Hence, why I contacted him again.
He always arrived punctually. Explained exactly what he was going to do. Excellent communication skills, pleasant and respectful. As was his colleague.
They worked non stop and once the job was completed Ben went through what he had done.
Area was left clean. I was very pleased with the result.
I can highly recommend Ben. In fact I have already done so to my neighbours in the past. (Reviewed March 2022)
Ben always responded positively on the telephone and at every visit. He explained the problem with our roof, showed me photographs and explained the work required. The repair looks good and sorted the problem. (Reviewed March 2022)
Ben has come and done some work on my roof before and done an outstanding job. When I needed someone to take a look at a leaky chimney and fit a cowl I didn't think twice about asking him again.
Work completed promptly as ever with good communication. I hadn't asked in advance about taking down an old aerial while the scaffolding was up, when I mentioned this Ben popped back the next day and did that too.
Honest and trustworthy advice followed by a good job. What more can you ask? (Reviewed February 2022)
Ben did two jobs for us, verge and ridge tiles. His work, timekeeping and price were excellent. He was one of the tidiest tradesman we have ever used. We would contact Ben again if we have more roofing needs and can highly recommend him. (Reviewed December 2021)
Really pleased with how professional Ben was and the work carried out, good price too (Reviewed December 2021)
Flashing very loose and missing mortar gaps, repaired and now looks just like new with mortar matched in and better clips used. No mess left after job and turned up when expected. Polite and knowledgeable and aware of safety in doing the work. I have asked for more quotes for additional work elsewhere and would recommend. (Reviewed November 2021)
Excellent experience with Ben from start to finish. Provided a quote within a few days from initial contact, agreed a date and then carried out the work on the exact date. Quote was very reasonable especially as the job turned out to be a bit more complex than originally expected. Would recommend Ben to anyone. (Reviewed September 2021)
Ben is a lovely guy, and I'm so glad I found him. He has fixed 3 problems that were either too difficult or individually too small for others to deal with.
He visited the site, as scheduled, to survey the job and, as agreed, returned a couple of days later to undertake the work, having brought with him everything he needed.
I obviously hope I don't need his services again, but if I do, he'll be the first roofer I call. (Reviewed August 2021)
Ben provided excellent professional repair works for my Chimney, Roofing and Gutters, he always arrives in good time; therefore there is no doubt I strongly recommended him for the task. (Reviewed July 2021)
Ben is a very approachable and friendly. Even though he was incredibly busy, he still managed to fit us in to his schedule. Very happy with the service he provided. (Reviewed July 2021)
Excellent service. Ben Harmes is reliable, a clean worker and his prices are reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending him and will definitely use him again. (Reviewed July 2021)
We had struggled to find anyone to solve our problem and do the work. Builders said it was a gardening problem and gardening companies said it was a builder's job. Finding Ben solved our problem and the work was carried out very quickly and efficiently for which we are very grateful.

Ben did a great job on finding and repairing the leak in my roof. He removed the coping stones, added fresh lead flashing and applied external sealant. He showed me photos of what he'd done and I was very happy. I would definitely recommend him. (Reviewed March 2021)
Excellent (Reviewed March 2021)
Ben originally quoted for some repairs to guttering at the back of my house but when he came to do the job it appeared that the person who had supposedly cleared the gutter last November had not done a very good job and the overflow problem was simply a blockage rather than misalignment of the gutter as we originally thought. Ben removed the top section of downpipe and cleaned out, reattached and then cleaned out the rest of the gutter and checked that all was flowing OK. He immediately adjusted the price appropriately.
Very pleasant and helpful and would certainly use again. (Reviewed March 2021)
Ben came over a year ago to fix a couple of broken tiles, since then a different part of the roof developed a leak. Both times he has done a great job. He is professional, courteous and turned up when he said he would!
Also on the latest job it took less time than he expected so his invoice was less than the quote (when does that happen??).
Can't say enough good things really. If you need a roof repair or roof job, speak to Ben. (Reviewed March 2021)
Friendly and efficient. (Reviewed March 2021)
Ben Harmes' work was excellent. He was also punctual, efficient, tidy throughout the work. He communicated about the job at the beginning and end of each day, so that I knew exactly how the job was progressing. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and would certainly use him again in future. (Reviewed March 2021)
We have used Ben for many years, he is trustworthy and always delivers a quality job. (Reviewed February 2021)
Excellent service received from Ben. After contacting Ben about losing some of our dry verge kit, Ben came to take a look very quickly. Ben sourced a replacement part and fitted the following day. I would highly recommend Ben , very professional (Reviewed January 2021)
The Service received from Ben Harmes Roofing was excellent.
He quickly went to my Mums Property to find the cause of water leaking into the house into the house.
Once there he assessed the problem, which was broken tiles and a roof vent.
Advised of the cost for the repair, and made an appointment to come to do the job.
BUT because of the bad weather he came back even earlier and fixed the roof before more rain could get into the house.
The price for this was very reasonable, he kept me informed all the time and has done an excellent job for my Mum. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing roofing work, (Reviewed January 2021)
Ben offered great service from start to finish. He kept us informed and was punctual, polite and courteous. (Reviewed January 2021)
Happy to recommend. Very pleased with the new guttering and matched tiles. (Reviewed January 2021)
Harmes & Co provided a brilliant, timely service to fix an urgent leak caused by one of our chimneys. Whilst they were here, I asked a question on getting new chimney cowls, and Harmes & Co went out of their way to drive to source two new cowls & fit them in addition to the original job they were fixing. It was very kind and has saved us a lot of time. Thank you Harmes & Co Roofing - I would highly recommend to others seeking a professional, prompt & friendly service. (Reviewed January 2021)
Ben was a pleasure to deal with. He did a thorough inspection of the work we needed done, and made some additional recommendations. We felt his quote was fair and decided to go ahead with the work, and so glad we did. He did a fantastic job, and we've already recommended him to our neighbours. (Reviewed January 2021)
Ben visited yesterday and advise me there was no need for any work to be done as it was condensation. He advised that what was required was air circulation and to pull the insulation away from the walls to allow more air in the loft.
Thanks to Ben I have saved myself unnecessary work, expense and time. (Reviewed December 2020)
Mr.Harmes was very efficient, polite, friendly and reliable. (Reviewed December 2020)

Ben was punctual & hard working, with fair pricing & very trustworthy. Did a good job, left the place tidy & did it all in a timely manor. I will definitely recommend him to any friends & family in the future & use him again myself if ever needed. (Reviewed December 2020)

Moss removal from entire roof of 4 bed detached house including resultant clearance of gutters and downpipes and disposal of arisings.
All work carried out efficiently and courteously over 1 day.
Would not hesitate to use Ben Harmes again and would recommend to others. (Reviewed November 2020)
Ben discussed with us in detail the work that was needed, showing us photos of the roof areas in question. He provided a detailed quote. Whilst here, he had to work around other workmen on site and also had to deal with scaffolders not delivering on time. He handled all this with cheerful equanimity and worked unobtrusively and efficiently. We feel confident that the leak has been solved, though it hasn't rained yet! There have been several unsatisfactory "quick fixes" in the past so we were delighted to find a roofer at last who really knows his stuff. (Reviewed September 2020)
Very good (Reviewed August 2020)
Ben did an excellent job and gave great service. Will be my first choice going forward! (Reviewed August 2020)

We needed a cowl fitting to our chimney. Throughout the process I found Ben efficient and professional to deal with - he was also good at communicating and doing what he said he would on time. All in all an excellent process - I would use his services again and would recommend him to others. (Reviewed June 2020)
Ben worked quickly and efficiently and cleaned up after himself. (Reviewed June 2020)

Excellent service (Reviewed December 2019)
We recently had rainwater leaking into a bedroom and asked around for recommendations for a roofer who was efficient and trustworthy. Unfortunately no recommendations so we were faced with the daunting prospect of finding somebody.
I'm sure we all fear that we may end up with someone who doesn't do a good job or makes an excessive charge so it was lucky for us that we found Ben Harmes. Ben was polite, friendly and efficiently diagnosed the problem and rectified it at a reasonable cost. He was also kind enough to fix a couple of problems with the guttering on another roof and to replace a cowling on a stench pipe.
We would thoroughly recommend Ben so look no further for a gutter/roofing tradesman, you will not be disappointed.

Very pleased with everything Ben has done for me - it was only because I was pleased with the initial visit that he has since come back to do future work.

I have recommended for other work to friends. (Reviewed March 2019)

Excellent service. Very experienced and works to a high standard. Pleasant and trustworthy to have around. Works with others but will easily work on his own.
