Essence replaced a velux window and skylight in my loft - excellent service from initial contact to finishing the job. Good communication from the office, kept me up to date, the roofers explained the work being done and were very conscientious... about it. They identified other problems with the roof and I have booked them to carry out the repairs as a result of the good experience (no hard sell involved, I was aware there were other issues with it being an old roof and had asked them to investigate/advise). Their quotes were also significantly lower than other companies who quoted both jobs.read more

Where to start? Called 3 roofing companies to begin with, customer service from Gemma and office staff at essence exceptional straight office the bat and far better than others, i felt like a valued client already at this early stage.Booked in for... a new roof consultation to which Paul turned up on time and as planned. Very thorough, professional and friendly throughout the survey and the quotation arrived swiftly afterwards. Price competitive with others and i was more than happy to accept and book in.As my installation date was getting closer Gemma at essence called me to give me an update and let me know the plan in regards to scaffold being built and materials arriving.The onsite team, a great team may I say arrived sharp each day and worked hard throughout the entire job. Nothing was an issue and even done a few things as goodwill which wasn’t on the quote. The roof looks absolutely fantastic and has had its test of rain already. No more leaks!Delighted to have chosen Essence. They certainly produce a 5 star service and all their excellent reviews are truly deserved.read more

I contacted Ryan from Essence Roofing following a great review given to me by my friend who had his roof replaced by Essence. From the time I contacted them they came across as a professional and helpful team. The work started on the date they said... they would and a full team turned up and carried out the work over the next 4 and a half weeks in a thorough and professional manner. They have an excellent team to hand and everyone one of them was courteous, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The work was completed to a very high standard. I have no hesitation in giving them a 5-star reviewread more

Ryan, Paul and the Essence team have been completely professional throughout the work to our roof, downpipes and gutters. There was great communication, they checked we were happy with the progress during the job and modified any aspect we asked... for. They also reacted quickly to newly discovered issues and repaired these too. I highly recommend them.read more

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 jees Louise I was not disappointed. Great work done... and very professional throughout. Will use again.read more

We are delighted with the work recently carried out by Ryan and his team, Paul, Stevie and everyone, absolutely top notch! The roof looks incredible, a thing of beauty (never thought I'd say that)... The service the team offered was very... professional, they were all very pleasant to have around, tidy, helpful and considerate. The quality of the work (an entire new roof) was a massive undertaking, but Ryan was responsive to our preferences, needs and the challenges that the roof presented in a conservation area. Highly recommended.read more

I was very happy with all the work done by Ryan and the team when they came to fix the roof above and around the bay window at the front of my home. Apart from the work being done on time and on quote, any questions or queries I had were answered... promptly which I found really helpful. I would highly recommend Essence Roofing. A very reliable and trustworthy company.read more

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 15-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 15-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.

Please call us on 0141 570 9152 to discuss any roofing project you may have in mind.
