    "I contacted Barry in September 2013 to fix a leak in my roof above the front door. When Barry came round he did not actually get up on the roof to look for the leak, but he and I talked about the flashing needing replacing anyway and I asked him to organise that. Two of his guys turned up in October and replaced the flashing. After the next big rainstorm I found that this had not fixed the leak and asked Barry to send his guys back for another look. It took several reminders from me for him to do this, and his guys turned up in December. They spent 5 mins tromping around the roof and said they couldn\'t see any leak. After banging in a few arbitrary nails, they left. After the next rainstorm the leak problem was even worse.

    I then tried to find a real roofer because by that time the leaks had warped the whole front door. I found Kenray Roofing whose guy spent 5 mins on the roof and found the leak immediately - simply by lifting one of the tiles above the front door to show the sodden batten underneath. (Something I would have expected Barry Stone to do). Further, he found that the flashing the Stone guys had put on HAD MADE THE PROBLEM WORSE because they had used screws where the thread did not extend to the end of the screw, leaving water to pour in through the screw hole as well as under the unsecure edge of the flashing. They hadn\'t even put washers on the screws to attempt even minimal watertightness. The Kenray Roofing guy was very good in showing me photos of all this, one of the screws they\'d put in, and he even brought down a section of tiles to show me how the water had got in under the flashing.

    I have written to Barry about this and await his reply. Barry Stone Plumbing was recommended to me by a friend, who may well have had very good work out of him as a plumber. But the company is clearly deficient when it comes to roofing work.

    Update 6 July 2014: To date Barry hasn\'t done me the courtesy of a reply to my email, and I\'m no longer expecting one from him. Given Kenray Roofing completely fixed the problem B J Stone hadn\'t been able to find, the $500 I spent on Barry Stone was a total waste of my money.

    "Quality of work was outstanding, the bill was extremly quick but sadly we were charged $60 for a consultation. Meaning no work was carried out, we only recieved information. I discussed this with Barry, he decided to drop the $60 charge after a quick talk."
