Guttering and roofing help in Canberra?

By 5 July 2012 10

Hey guys,

My first post on here. I’m looking at getting our gutters replaced and also possibly our roof replaced with colourbond.

Has anyone had any recent work on their gutters or roofs and can recommend some companies?

Has anyone had any recent experience with the gutter blokes, quality a must or react?

The previous posts are a little old so looking to get the latest information. Thanks in advance.

I personally wouldn’t recommend Quality A Must. Seemed very disorganised when prepping for a fairly simply gutter replacement at my place and even decided to just show up one day and drop the materials out the front, without telling us, before we’d even agreed to an installation date.

Getting a formal quote out of them, rather than just an arbitrary number on the back of a business card, was equally as hard.

These type of things aggravate my wife, so in turn make my life less enjoyable. I won’t be using them again.

That being said, the quality of their work seems to be holding up, for what it’s worth.

That’s a bit lazy! We got our gutters and roof replaced with Colourbond last year. We went straight to RA and found lots of praise for All Top Roofing http://www.alltoproofing.com.au/# in the old threads.

It was spot on. They were helpful, reliable, accommodating, much cheaper, and helped us with insulation, ceilings and the installation of a solar hot water system too. Give Kane a call, lovely guy.

Ditto, plus broken tiles and ridge capping.

Wow, thanks for the quick responses, fantastic. Will give all top roofing a shot with a quote and see how it comes out. It seems that they were getting good vibes in previous posts as well.

i’ve used alltop roofing for repointing, replacing broken tiles, repairing flashing and doing new gutters and installing gutter guard. extremely competitive pricing and top quality work. can’t recommend them any more highly!

We had React do our guttering and Colourbond fascias to restore crumbling timber fascias and other exposed woodwork, and they did a fantastic job. Our house was built, then extended, by an owner-builder who didn’t know what a straight line was, and who used all sorts of second-hand material in all different sizes. No two pieces of fascia were the same. React put in the extra work and time to make sure every thing fitted and matched up, even put in extra large guttering and downpipe on the flat-roof garage so it couldn’t overflow (not part of the original job) and worked overtime to get the extra work done to the original schedule.

Not the cheapest quote, but I’m glad we chose them because they stopped and consulted about how to fix the problems as soon as they became evident, and worked out solutions within budget rather than just asking for more money.

They also repointed the roof, replaced dozens of broken tiles and painted it. Also well.done

Resurrecting this thread to see if anyone has any other recommendations. I did contact all top and got a quote. Kane seemed very competent and straightforward but, as we are looking at a sizeable chunk of change, I would like to get a second quote before going ahead with it.

Anyone have any other recommendations for high-quality, reputable roofers?

I am upset that React Roofing has started new TV ads with an animated character replacing that horny dude who was in the ads up till now. Please React (and you’ve advertised on this site in the past) get him back on TV ASAP!
