We chose Metropolitan Roof Repairs to carry out some repair work on our concrete tile roof, which hadn't been touched for about 18 years. Tom and the team did an excellent job on the ridge capping/re-pointing, and general fixing up of chipped tiles and checking/sealing flashings. They were always polite, neat (all rubbish removed), and turned up when they said they would. I'm very happy with the result, and the work was done at a very competitive price. Thanks Tom!
