Budget roofing & UPVC cowboys in Bray
Budget Roofing and UPVC Specialists = Rip-Off Cowboys
I'm just warning people off this crowd of cowboys.. They came to replace our gutters (and the next door), and that fella John himself marked the leaflet above, including down pipes in the price.
Btw, they had been asked to do black gutters, but they arrived with white only - we weren't that fussed, so we went ahead with the white.
However, when they were "done", they just snapped the old black down pipe back to its place, although a new one had been agreed to be included:
Daniel's mam paid them (they didn't give a receipt - typical..), but Daniel did notice the old down pipe just before they left, and said it to them. They said they would come back the next day and replace it. That was before the May Bank Holiday weekend - and as you can guess, they never came back the next day.. Daniel actually phoned them that day, and their attitude then was: "oh, have they not been there yet?", promising they would be, during that day. It didn't happen.
After the Bank Holiday, Daniel phoned them again, and this time they said they would come and replace the down pipe at 11am the next day. They didn't.
I sent a text message to the mobile number mentioned in their ad, yesterday. I said where I'm from, and asked them to get in touch as we're still expecting the down pipe to be replaced. They didn't get in touch. So, I phoned them today.
Our dear budget roofing and upvc specialist (fascia, soffit, gutters, down pipes, not to forget roofing; slates, tiles, chimney work, tourch on felt, lead flashing and crow guards - all work guaranteed
- In Case anyone was to google for them..) John had the cheek to claim they were never here, and therefore never promised us a down pipe. Well, funny how their truck is in this photo I took the day they were here:
And you can even spot the man himself in this detail:
So, if you're planning to have gutters or roofing done, it would make sense to contact some other crowd as this bunch are clearly liars who gladly take your money, but not really do the work they've promised, and later claim they were never even there.
