    "We had our property in Hataitai reroofed 5 years ago by this business and it's been an absolute disaster. They were a nightmare to work with at the time, and the roof has so many issues with it, all verified by the roofing association. We would be going after Thistle for damages if I thought we had any chance of getting anything out of it, but have absolutely no confidence that we'd get one cent. Avoid, avoid, avoid."

    "I had work done by this company many years ago so had no qualms in contacting them again in 2018. At first they said they were busy and would come at then end of the week. No show and no phone call. After three messages, 2 weeks later and numerous downpours of rain we never heard from them again. We could have organised someone else to come and avoided terrible ceiling damage. Completely unreliable and unresponsive. I will give this company a very wide berth from now on. Very disappointed at the stuffing around. We ought to charge them for the damage caused by their delays."

    "We cannot recommend this company at all. Very professional when quoting & explaining the details of the roofing job. The job was done while we were away (big mistake) . Some house painting was done at the same time. The painter made us aware of issues, which, when we looked into it, took a VERY long time,to rectify. Many phone calls, several visits. After about 9 months everything sorted. There are plenty of other companies who get great reports. I wish I'd known about No Cowboys before we employed this company."

    "Terrible time with this firm, bad communication. Asked them to tell me when the roof fix was going to be done, never heard back and then received an invoice out of the blue. Asked them to meet me at the property to show me what was fixed, never heard anything back so invoice hasn't been paid. Roof did leak again which proved no fix had been applied in the first place. They are very lucky I didn't lay a fraud complaint. "

    "Have been thoroughly impressed with the service we have had from Peter and his wonderful team. Peter was the first roofer we contacted as he was local, the price was right and when he said they could do the job on a certain date THEY DID!! Cannot fault the workmanship, and the roofers were brilliant, arrived on time, worked relentlessly until the job was finished, very happy bunch of guys. Took all the rubbish away too !Would have no hesitation in recommending this Company to all. "

    "Friendly at first when he said it would take a couple of weeks to fix our roof. Two years and over $20,000 dollars later the roof is leaking in 5 places, he won't fix it, refuses to go to an independent expert recommended by the roofing association and wants another $26,000 for the job (we're talking a residential roof here). Total nightmare. You have been warned."

    "Unfortunately I cannot recommend these guys. Peter was very friendly on my first phone call. I took time off work and waited in at home for his men, but no one ever turned up - not once, but TWICE!

    No one from this company phoned me at all, and I have had to do all the phoning and chasing up when they haven't turned up.

    After plenty of promises it's 8 days later and I still have a leaking roof and no one has come to even have a look at it.

    I have decided on the basis of the very poor communications and pre-service, that I would prefer to find someone else..."

    "He stated the described job would be about $200 (didn't want to come and quote). The final price came in at $1300. There was also a discrepency between the number of tile quoted for and actually used on the roof (notable number difference). When we tried to sort out what had happened he was confrontational and extremely unpleasant - seemed like he was used to dealing with complaints in this fashion. Would thoroughly never trust this guy. His workers did a good job, but he was not someone I'd hire again - would've complained to the Roofers Assoc if they were a member then - I note they've joined in May 2009. Maybe that helps."

    "Peter was fantastic. We were selling our house and the buyers builder had indicated the roof needed replacing and he quoted $12,000 for the job. Our builder said nothing wrong with the roof, no work required so we called a few roofing contractors and got no-little response from most of them (likely due to the fact it was the week before xmas). Peter himself arrived the same day as his guys were busy at another site. He did a thorough inspection, reccommended some flashings be replaced and confirmed roof did not need replacing. Emailed us a report overnight for the buyers along with a quote for $6,000 to replace the roof if that was what they still wanted to do. Would definitely reccommend Peter and his business to others. Be prepared for a strong Scottish accent and an honest assessment/quote."
