Clients & Testimonials

We take pride in the quality of our work and are always delighted to hear the great feedback we often receive from satisfied clients.

“Thankyou for everything you have done to get us to this place after the terrible storm. We now have a new roof. At every stage you have kept me informed about timings and what was going to happen during the restoration, and every team of roofers has been first class. They have all shown pride in their work and and displayed a work ethic that has been very impressive.  

Each team of roofers , scaffolders and delivery drivers has been extremely courteous and respectful. In very stressful times for my husband and I, these guys gave us hope and reassurance that all would be well in the fullness of time. The Yorkshire guys have been a joy to get to know— we appreciate that they have been away from their homes and families; they worked non- stop every day and over the weekend. Truly the A-Team!

Thank you for taking us from the devastation of Storm Arwen to a new beginning—with a superb new roof.”

We recently had our house and garage roof replaced by your firm and I am writing to say what an excellent, top quality job your workforce carried out. They were professional, polite and finished the job in three days! Amazing.

Also, thank you so much to Dave York who could not have been more helpful, explaining the process throughout, visiting us regularly and answering all our queries along the way. We felt very much included in the process and communication from your office was excellent.

The cavalry, led by Captain Paul ‘Barclay Roofing’ Trelease, came and rescued my roof from the ravages caused by the cowboys I’d engaged 9 months earlier. Paul’s troops, namely Gareth and Chris on the roofing side, and Dave and Gary on the gutters, did a great job in fixing the roof and guttering and dealing with the anomalies caused by the cowboys and the original build.

They were professional throughout and obviously took a pride in ensuring that the work was completed to a high standard, keeping me informed of any issues that cropped up. I can now sleep at night knowing that my roof will be safe and secure for many years to come.

I was also pleased with the manner in which the company, Paul in particular but not forgetting his team, dealt with the negotiations irrespective of the delays caused by Covid-19. It has been a great team effort, which also includes McClurg Scaffolding Limited of Crook, who were equally professional and took great care in erecting and dismantling phases.

Lessons have been learnt and I hopefully won’t be caught out by the cowboys in the future. I should have gone with my instincts and employed the professionals like Barclay Roofing Ltd. in the first place.

“Thanks for everything you have done to help with me with my roof and for restoring my faith in humanity! A big well done to Paul and Carl for their excellent work and consideration.”

Silvia Shorey Domestic re-roof client North East

“Dear Paul

I wanted to place on record that we have really appreciated all of your help and assistance on the Wynyard Gardens project. This could have been a very difficult project for Metnor Construction Ltd. The only reason that the Roof and Envelope has gone so smoothly is due to your personal input and assistance with design, detailing and your ‘let’s just get the job done’ attitude.

The finished product looks amazing. The roofing, cedar work and oak piers look fantastic and the client has made particular reference to your work package elements as being superb. Please pass our thanks on to your team, we look forward to working together again in the future.”

“Dear Phil,

This is just a letter to say thank you so much for the roofing works that you have carried out at St Bede’s. We have been overwhelmed with the professionalism of your staff and the willingness to go ‘above and beyond’ at all times.

Particular acknowledgment must go to Darren. He has become a very special member of our school family and alongside your other employees, he sits and has his lunch with the children every day. Darren has communicated with myself regularly, updated me on progress and always kept the children at the heart of his plans, moving things about if they clashed with learning. We will miss him so much! He is a fantastic asset to your company.

Thank you too, Phil. Without your sourcing of a generator, our ‘Raising the Roof’ gig would have had to have been cancelled. Not to mentioned that ‘little bit’ of fencing. You are a star!

Never before have we wanted a building job to go on, but we truly wish this one would have lasted a little longer! We would recommend ‘Barclays’ to anyone!”

“On behalf of  The Avenue Primary School I would like to thank Darren and Chris for their excellent work and also to their pleasant, friendly attitude towards all the children and staff,  it has been a pleasure having them working on our site.  They are a credit to your company.”

Jackie Grainger, School Business Manager Public sector client The Avenue Primary School, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough

“I just wanted to thank you and all your team for a good job well done on my roof. It appeared to be a straight forward job but didn’t turn out like that! I’m very grateful to you for sticking with it until a solution was found – you must have dreaded hearing that there was another phone call from me. Fingers crossed – my home is again watertight. It was a pleasure to have such hard working professional men working on the job – they restored my faith in our country’s working man. Thanks again for all your help.”

“I am thrilled with the work done on my roof. It is such a relief to find a reliable company!”

Penny Holton Domestic re-roof client Croft on Tees

“I’m delighted with my brand new carriage house. I didn’t realise that Barclay Roofing undertook this kind of work, but was relieved when I discovered that they did, as they have done roofing works for me previously and I was very satisfied. I had an idea of what I wanted, but Barclay Roofing came up with some excellent suggestions. From design to installation, the service was superb and the finished project is just lovely. The craftsmanship is excellent.”

Vicki Taylor Domestic carpentry client Shotley Bridge

“I couldn’t be happier with our new slate roof. Not only did the team at Barclay Roofing make some suggestions that saved us a small fortune, but the service delivery was outstanding. Even during the wettest, windiest weather, the team managed to keep our 19th century home water tight during the re-roof project. The operatives were lovely, and so professional, and the management team were never less than extremely helpful. Our home is now dry, so much warmer, and it looks stunning too.”
