    "Two difficult refurbished decks over rooms in 80's house. Took out the ranch sliders and waterproofed well into both rooms. Took off the deck rails, replaced all the flashing's and wood where needed. Great job plus a 20 guarantee."

    ""Use these guys at your own risk!!! I had terrible trouble right through with these roofers. It took 7 weeks for a 4 day job replacing my roof, during this time they fell through my eaves twice and my ceiling twice. They also had to re replace 50 sheets of long run iron as they dented all the sheets they had already replaced. The ends were uneven and not turned down, the gutters were shockingly fitted and had to be replaced and mess to our yard with screws and cut tin etc was just a joke, If you want a long and extremely unprofessional job choose these guys. I strongly suggest you give them a miss. Pathetic and unprofessional describes them well!!""

    "Right from the beginning - a careful and detailed quote, through to the clean-up (only found 3 nails on the ground), this company was great to deal with. Very helpful in allowing us to take samples to match roofing iron colours. Thoroughly recommended"

    "I just want to say that we are very pleased with our new roof and were impressed with the way the job went.
    It was definitely a challenging roof, in terms of height and access, so we were very grateful to have such a professional
    team on board!
    We were kept informed as to what was happening all throughout the job and found the contractors very appraochable and happy to discuss the job. I'm an architect and I found them excellent to deal with.
    I would thoroughly recommend Cowperthwaites for residential through to commercial work. Cheers!

    "I'm the building manager at a very large multi-unit inner city town housing complex. We have roofing issues from time to time, some of them simple and easy to fix, some of them complex and extremely difficult to fix - some leaks even have had the potential to compromise our cladding and it's warranty. But not so with Cowperthwaites. Cowperthwaite Roofing are amazing. One call, and the job is as good as underway. An average inspection wait is same-day, and if it's simple it's done on the spot. As soon as things appear more complicated, the full team gets involved, and it really does become a well managed team effort.

    I know their main business is installing new or replacement roofing, but my experience with their repair work, well it really is second to none. Neat people, neat service, neat price. Recommended unreservedly.

    "they suppose to start in december they started eventually in february.
    every time you call jeoff he said that we do not have work men waiting for you to call to do your job we will do it when we are free.
    we have to change the flooring and bring someone to sand the ground becuase i waited 4 weeks for a job that took them one hour only because we cannnot but the windowns before the roofing can do the flashing.
    i called the CEO ( Richard) about three times and then eventually mark captain has arrived but he comes at 4 pm then he leaves at 4:30 without doing any thing i told the CEO that this company reputation is going under the ground but appearantly he is not caring.

    we have a louvertech to be installed after the capping we waited for more than 3 months for just the capping we start calling mark on mid of april the job just finished two days ago. the louverteck company was suriprised and said how come you are not doing any thing you need to sue this company.

    in conclusion if you choose this company you need to go to you doctor to have sleepin pills, headache pills , check your heart because you may get heart attack.

    i think the wise decission is to pay a little bit more and leave cowboy companies like this to be out of bussines becuase it is not deserve to work in this country

    "A 3-4 day re-roof job took 2.5 months to complete. It was stop then start throughout the job and I was often not informed of when they would be coming back. They also started a few weeks later than they said they would. A subcontractor (Harley, Ace of Trades)was used, which I wasn't informed of until he turned up on site. Due to the problems on my job I believe he no longer works for Cowperthwaites. He didn't seem to know what he was doing, and didn't anticipate potential problems with the job, and complained that the contractor didn't know what they were doing either. Very unprofessional and because I didn't know about roofing, attempted to use this to pull the wool over my eyes about additional costs that were not included in the original budget. If you have a cedar clad home make sure you ask whether cladding will need to be replaced so they can replace the roof flashings."

    "Seems to be a reincarnation of original firm Cowperthwaite Ltd (in receivership), but they appear to be trading under the Cowperthwaite name and sub-contracting the work out. Paid 50% deposit March 08. Job finally finished Sept. Took a long time to start & after no contact had to ring several times to get a start date (would have been very nervous had I known then about the recent receivership). When it finally happened the roof installation took only 2-3 days but it immediately leaked badly in 2 places (one due to shoddy installation of flashings on top of cladding instead of underneath) & required multiple visits/attempts trying to get the chimney flashing watertight. They never did - it still leaks & the end result is somewhat ugly. Relied heavily on silicone. Broke our spouting in 5 places & punctured (by dropping hammer) & scratched the part of the roof that wasn\'t being replaced (all of which I had to fix). Left behind about 3 wheelie bins worth of rubbish. Friendly enough tradespeople etc to deal with, but they didn\'t meet the standard I expected of a long established firm. If you\'re going to use them (definitely not recommended)- get up and check for leaks before you pay the account."

    "Ross appeared on time, tried to sort a tricky leaks and came back to sort when the leak occurred again - the reoccurence wasn't his fault as we have a dodgy roofing system, but he didn't charge anymore for the repeat call which was great. When he finished the job, he spent time to tell my wife exactly what happened and how he sorted it. We continue to recommend Cowperthwaites to friends."
