We had our whole roof done by Essence in the Westend of Glasgow on an older building (including some more challenging lead works) so this was not an easy job at all. Essence were great from the start, always communicated very well and kept us informed about the progress. Paul and the team really went the extra mile (e.g. sent someone over the weekend) to get the job done and we always felt that we are in good hands. I am so glad we chose this company to solve our water issues that have been going on for years (the heavy rain in the last couple of days is prove of that).

Great work done by Ryan and his team on my roof that needed attention badly. Essence beat the quotes given by other companies and I chose to go with them due to their infallible track record. And I was not disappointed. Great work done and very professional throughout. Will use again. Thanks a bunch gents!

Why Are We The Best Roofing Contractors In Glasgow?

Essence Roofing & building services have been based in the south-side of Glasgow in Burnside since its inception.

We are a local roofing contractor specialising in installing tiled & slated roofs, slate and tile roof repair, lead-work, gutter installation & repair, rendering and roughcasting and much more.

One reason why we are the best roofing contractor in Glasgow is simply because the overwhelming majority of our customers say so. You can see our 5-star reviews on our testimonials page and everywhere else on the internet on websites such as Checkatrade, Trustpilot and many other reputable websites.

Another reason why we are the best roofers in Glasgow is that we offer a 10-year insurance backed guarantee on jobs. Now I know that some companies offer very long guarantees on their workmanship, but do you honestly believe they will honor guarantees that far into the future when the company itself may no longer exist? As members of the confederation of roofing contractors we are able to provide insurance backed gaurantees for your total peace of mind.

Our 10-year guarantee is long enough to give you peace of mind and matches what many other reputable companies will provide. Of course, we will advise you prior to any works being undertaken if a guarantee applies to the works and provide it in writing.

The final reason is actually mentioned at the very beginning of this article.

We’re local! When you call us, we are in most cases less than a 15-20 minute drive from you. There is no long commute or uncertainty about whether we will want to quote for your work. As a local roofing contractor in the south of Glasgow we want local customers and will endeavor to respond to your enquiry as promptly as possible.

We are committed to excellence and try our best for all our customers.

Essence Building don’t just offer your standard written guarantee that many other roofing companies offer. As members of CORC (Confederation of Roofing Contractors) we offer customers insurance backed guarantees! CORC are a leading trade body for roofing companies in the UK since 1986.

They not only audit their member roofing companies but make sure they adhere to their code of practice designed to protect the public from rogue roofers and provide roofing companies with support and advice in all aspects of the roofing trade. So our membership of CORC tells our customers that not only are you dealing with one of the most highly reviewed & recommended roofers in Glasgow but your also getting the peace of mind that regardless of whatever happens you have complete safety in an insurance backed guarantee on completion of your works backed by the best in the business.

Of course, one of the reasons we are able to offer such guarantees in the first place is because of the high standards of workmanship we bring to each and every roofing project and the very low call back rate we have with regards to potential problems with roofing jobs we have completed. So don’t waste time and call the best roofing company in Glasgow!
