    "My neighbours had used Total roofing and I found them responsive when I asked for a quote for a colour steel re-roof and chimney removal.

    I was pleased with the quote for a colour steel as it was the most competitive but also it had a good amount of clear information in it. Chris was also happy to answer various questions I had.

    I only had to wait a few weeks once the quote was accepted and the re-roof and chimney removal didn't take long considering it was mid-winter with some rough weather.

    The workers were respectful and kept me informed with what was happening as best they could.

    There was a minor bit of damage as the scaffolding went up and another nick to some glass when coming down. The first item I noticed and there was no quibble about fixing it. Chris called me about the second item before I had a chance to call him. Letting me know replacement glass was in hand and a glazier would be calling me. They also happily accommodated a couple of requests I had.

    So, not only does the actual roof look great the service was even better.

    "We had a great experience with Chris and his team - the only company that got back to us, a short wait for the work to get done, and a good value price. Couldn't be happier to recommend them to others. "

    "We initially found Chris\'s communication great. He responded promptly and got the work done in the tight time frame we provided. They were also very affordably priced. We have had a couple of issues with the roof. The first (a leak around an old pipe and a difficult area to roof) was fairly easy to get sorted after a couple of phone calls. The second (a leak around a chimney) took a number of phone calls from us and our builder to get sorted and I felt communication could have been better."

    "The guys did a really awesome job. They let you know exactly what they were doing. They were very friendly and great to deal with. The roof looks so good, like a different house almost :-) I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to friends and family. "

    "Chris was the only roofing company that returned my call (I left messages/queries with four). Chris came around quickly and as it was a leak in the roof we were having issues with, gave us some advice on how we could fix it ourselves. No charge for that callout. Chris was polite and very easy to talk about the situation with. We followed the advice which unfortunately did not fix the leak completely (but did lessen it). Chris then investigated several repair options for us, and provided a quote quickly for the option we selected. Despite being busy all communication was quickly responded to, and Chris managed to get his team up to complete the job very promptly. The repair is tidy (the iron is even colour matched!), and has completely fixed the leak. We are more than happy with all aspects of the repair carried out and would not hesitate to recommend Total Roofing. Many thanks to Chris and his team."

    "I got four quotes and Total Roofing's was well set out on one page with all the required information. I didn't have to read my way through pages of small print. The quote was done as soon as possible after I contacted Chris and communication was excellent at all times.

    Their price was the most reasonable.

    The weather deteriorated half way through the job but even that didn't cause any problems. The work site was left clear of rubbish.

    I would be happy to recommend Total Roofing to anyone."

    "I just got my roof replaced by Total Roofing and I must say I am most happy with the result. I am the worry type but Chris has been really reassuring and answered my loads of questions patiently. The price is very competitive and the work was done to my utmost satisfaction. I have nothing to say but praises to Bernie and his team. Job really well done."

    "Nothing but good things to say about Chris Marer and his Team. Would recommend to anyone looking at roofing services.

    Lightning fast turnaround on getting a quote, Chris was excellent to deal with and we knew that he was the right man for the job as soon as we met him.

    The quote was really competitive, workmanship was excellent, these guys run a tight ship - site was tidy at all times and they even had a laugh with my (very interested) toddler that asked about 500 questions a day! All work completed in 3 days even with a bit of dodgy weather arriving on us."

    "Chris and his team headed by Bernard completed a very professional re-roof on my house. They willingly did a few small extra jobs while the roof was off. They also kept the site tidy and cleaned up well when the job was completed.
    Communication from Chris was excellent.

    "Total Roofing undertook an urgent job of reroofing our 100 year old Thorndon house. This was not an easy task with a lot of fiddly pieces and the need to address issues that arise with older houses such as things not being as straight as they once were. The resulting job is fabulous and I am very pleased to recommend Barnards team - Ben, Dean and Dalkeith; they were polite and easy to have around. They also did a superb job of cleaning up after themselves. Communication was good and working in with the other contractors was well handled.

    A good experience.

    "We got a number of quotes to get out roof replaced. Total Roofings quote was very competitive, and dealing with Chris Marer was a pleasure - this is what swung us towards accepting their quote.

    The job was done extremely quickly and to a very high standard. I would not hesitate in recommending Total Roofing. My neighbours son also used Total Roofing and recommended them to us (after we had accepted the quote).

    "Great job! Great communication and quick quote turnaround (that was cheaper than others!).
    They did the roof at a pretty miserable time of year weather wise, so it took a few days to finish, but the guys always left the roof water tight and secure each night when they left. Impressed with how thorough they were with seeing the job through (we needed special screws for part of the roof) and they showed up on a weekend when the weather was good to finish it off.
