Our Roofing Services In South East Essex

Dawsons Builders are a highly experienced building and roofing firm, with over 40 years within in the construction industry. We predominantly provide building services and specialise in both slate and flat roofing (in particular felt roofing) as well as roofing maintenance and repair services.

The following are typical issues that have to be addressed to avoid expensive repair bills:

  • Tiles that have slipped and become damaged, exposing the woodwork.
  • Tired, damaged guttering that allows water to run down the side of a building
  • The valleys and flashing require replacing
  • The ridges and hips need repointing.

Our team of roofers are able to inspect any potential damage, access the roof status and provide recommendations for all roof types. We supply cost-free quotes for us to carry out maintenance and repair work.

Roof Repairs

All roofs will, at some point become damaged, through weathering and it is at this point that roof repair will become necessary. However, regular maintenance can help avoid expensive repairs or full roof replacements. Dawsons Builders specialise in repairing roofs and roof maintenance of felt and slate roofing structures. We've been attending to damaged roofs throughout Essex for the past 40 years and have gained a lot of knowledge in the process.

Contact us today to find out more if you suspect that you have a damaged roof.

Felt Flat Roofing

Having gained an in-depth knowledge of flat roofs, their nuances and sticking points while working in the industry, we've decided to specialise in felt roofing rather than plastic roofing.

If you are unsure about any aspect of your flat roof and want to ensure that there will be no leakage or damage to your property, then give us a call to discuss any problem with you roof.

Roofing Installation

No matter how well you repair and maintain your roof, there will be instances whereby, the whole roof will need to be removed and replaced.

We know this does happen with houses that have been left vacant for a considerable time and have therefore not been 'lived' in with regular heating and maintenance.

Our experience and knowledge in this field will enable us to choose the most suitable roof slates for your roof, both for aesthetics and durability.

Our New Roofing Guarantee & Roofing Guarantees

We want to provide our customers with the highest quality of materials available, to ensure that we deliver on our own expectations. Combined with our extensive knowledge and experience within the building and roofing industry, rest assured that you'll get the best option from Dawsons.

Our work is supported by a full seven year new roof guarantee as well as roof guarantees, cover all of our work.
