Customer Testimonials

I was impressed by the way Jimmy turned up on the correct day and time to give an estimate for the work I wanted.He gave an honest opinion of what I needed and was good enough to tell me that some of the work I thought I needed was not necessary.He could have just done it for more money. The work was a bit held up due to high winds and rainy weather, but overall he got on with things and was obviously keen to do a good job. He even came round on a windy Sunday to ensure the partially completed roof was ok.

He answered all my questions and concerns, and the job seems to be good, no problems whatsoever despite some heavy rain since the job was done.

I can completely recommend his firm and the guys on site were tidy, helpful and knew their job. This is reassuring for me.Reasonably priced too, I had additional work done, gutters, facias, soffits etc.

Thanks Jim....nice one !!

Mick Moloney, Banff

We're extremely pleased with both the work quality and the service received from Jimmy. As the work was very weather dependent, Jimmy kept in touch with us on when he would be coming round and never let us down. We'll definitely use you again. Thank you!

Lucy Williams, Lossiemouth

Dear Jimmy

Just a note to thank you for the work you and your team did on our flat roof in July a job which included removing the top layers of the roof, replacing some of the baords, adding insulation and applying the rubberbond layer on top.

It was a large, high roof (with a layer of stones on top to boot), and on what turned out to be three of the hottest days of the year, you all showed up early, worked tirelessly and efficiently, tidied up afterwards and the end result is all we could have hoped for. The guarantee is a big reassurance for us too.

So thank you again to all for your commitment and hard work.

Kind regards

Brian Doyle, Keith

Dear Jimmy,
Just a note to say a big thank you for the fantastic job you did on our flat roof in August - it's brilliant! As you know, we weren't expecting to have to fix the roof when we bought the cottage, but knowing that the extension had to be gutted anyway we thought it best to re-do the roof at the same time and save problems later on. We had quotes for all sorts of roofing systems and the Rubberbond Fleeceback just seemed perfect for what we wanted - plus you were competitive on price. I know we had some bad weather at the start of the job which delayed you a wee bit, but it was good to know that you were as concerned about the weatherproofing of the extension as we were. At no time did we ever have worries about the rain coming in! All in all we really enjoyed having you here and we both said that we've never had such a conscientious, hardworking contractor on site... And that's after many a house renovation! There is a marked difference in the temperature within the extension with the new roof & insulation you fitted so we're chuffed to bits.
We've already recommended you & we'd happily do so again. Wishing you every success for the future Jimmy! Kind regards,

Mr & Mrs Turner

I would like to thank jimmy and mike for the work carried out on the RUBBERBOND fleeceback roofing and the upvc fascias and guttering they fitted to the flat roof on my property,being quite a large flat roof i was a bit concerned about the job being a bit to large for these guys but the coped admirably.

Being an engineer iam very fussy about quality of workmanship and i have to say they carried out all my requests so certainly from my point of view they ticked all the boxes,i would have no problen recomending jimmy and michael to anyone requiring this type of work,very professional and quality workmanship.


Decided on RUBBERBOND epdm rather than the planned fibreglass or felt,this made the job more expensive, but jimmy and the team have given me a roof for life.

Started one day late because of bad weather,but,once started they got stuck in and completed in good time,in fact,i was so pleased i hired them to replace the facings and guttering,at extra cost of course,which again was top qaulity work

All in all,a very good job,very well done, i highly recommend jimmy widdrington, not the cheapest,but i think reliability,dedication,thoroughness and a qaulity end result is worth paying for.

Professional, friendly, good service – would use again.
Malcolm, Fraserburgh

I had two flat roofs repaired with new weatherproofing by the J.A. Widdrington firm and I am absolutely delighted with the work. Jimmy is very personable and he knows his job both technically and professionally. The work was completed before his scheduled time and you would have never known there were workmen about as they were so tidy.
A very reliable and honest firm indeed and I also received a 20-year guarantee. Importantly, a very respectable can sat outside my house.
Margaret Mitchell, Macduff

Jimmy Widdrington has done a few jobs for me this year, all completed to a very high standard. I had a leaking roof in the upstairs bathroom dormer window, which Jimmy repaired. However the leak was not in the obvious place and next time it rained, in came the rain! After phoning Jimmy, he appeared promptly next day (a Sunday) and investigated on the roof and in the loft. The job was then successfully completed that same week (at no extra charge). He also fixed some loose ridge tiles, which were in need of repair. I have booked him for later in the Summer to replace my flat roof extension. I would happily recommend Jimmy for any roofing job, big or small.
Maureen Kelbie

Work completed on roof despite poor weather, and looks good. We went for a new type of flat roof, which is a bit more expensive than the old style, but will be more reliable and hopefully work out better value with a 20 year guarantee. Little bits of pointing also done. Materials were ordered quickly and work was scheduled over the new year holidays with telephone calls so we always knew what was happening. All waste removed dfrom site and no additional charges added as well!
Andy Williamson

In the summer of 2008 I had a leaking flat roof. On contacting local building company J Widdrington I received an immediate response from Mr Widdrington who visited my house and offered various solutions to fix the problem one being Rubber Bond. I opted for the Rubber bond option and received a detailed method statement, product sheet and product sample. The work was carried out with minimum disruption in a very professional and tidy manner with all the old material removed from site. During the past six months I have had no problems with the roof and have also received a follow up phone call from Mr Widdrington to ensure that I am totally satisfied with the work carried out. To sum up I have had an excellent product fitted by a very professional company and would not hesitate to use them again.
Ian Horne, Elgin

Jimmy is an excellent guy to deal with, extremely reliable. He was there at the job when he said he would be, every time and saw it through without interruption, completing it on time and for the price quoted. I was very happy with the finish on the job and the quality of work throughout was to a very high standard. I would definitely recommend Jimmy as an honest trustworthy professional who will get the job done.

Punctual reliable friendly but also professional. Would definitely recommend and would use again. Makes a nice change to have work done in time and good quality.
Linda Christie, Aberdeen

Good competitive price work finished on time and to a satisfactory standard. Rating reflects a difficult job which was more complicated that originally priced but stuck to the quote.
James Watson, Fraserburgh

Dear Jimmy,

I would just like to say how pleased I was with the way you and your team completed the job of re – roofing the garage at Landlash.

Not only was the entire job completed efficiently, with next to no fuss, cleanly and efficiently but the finished job was attractive and pleasing to look at and your team were a pleasure to talk to and have the odd cup of tea with.

Just as a matter of interest you might like to know that on the following day, Thursday, a close friend of ours, who was an architect with Scottish Malt Distillers when I worked with them, visited and naturally I was keen to show him what a good job had been done. He said that the standard of the work looked every bit as good as would have been demanded by Scottish Malt Distillers on their buildings.

There was only one complaint and that was that you did such a good job clearing up the site after you had finished that you forgot to leave me some ‘off cuts’ and you cleared up my broom, the one with the red bristles!

I do appreciate that all off cuts are probably made good use of and I realise that the broom is a mistake so I insist that you don’t worry about it and perhaps if you are in Elgin in the future you will come and have another cup of tea with the broom tucked under your arm.

Best of luck to you and the team.

We have recently had the flat roof on our extension replaced. Previously we had felt which became very problematic over the last few years with numerous cracks appearing and the dreaded water leaks whenever it rained. After doing some research we decided to check out the EPDM rubber bond system and came across the Carisle product which has the fleece backed rubber. I then discovered that there were approved installers within 50 miles of us and contacted them. We received a fair quotation which was comparable with other roofing systems and gave them the go-ahead. We are absolutely delighted with the finished result. Not only do we now have a leak free roof but we also have one that looks great and does not have the weight sitting on it as previously. The job was carried out efficiently and professionally and completed in a few days. I would highly recommend this roofing system and J&M Widderington.
