Free, No-Obligation Quotes

Customers are welcome to call us in order to arrange free, no-obligation quote. At a time that is convenient for you, we’ll visit the property and assess the nature and scale of your request. After taking accurate measurements, we’ll leave in order to produce a quotation. This typically takes a few days to complete, as we will need to contact a scaffolding provider. Once the price has been calculated, we will email it to you promptly. Once you are happy with our pricing arrangement, we will commence work on the project. At J.L. Hewlett Roofing Specialist, we aim to work flexibly around your requirements.

Giving You Options

During a consultation, we will discuss any issues you may have with you roof. We will ascertain the best course of action and whether you require a repair or a replacement. Honest and dependable, our team takes pride in offering sound advice to clients. This website showcases our previous work, but we are happy to bring a portfolio along with us, too. That way, you’ll see the quality workmanship we are known to deliver.

Slate Types

A variety of different slate types are available for you to choose from. This includes differing qualities and price-ranges. We have products available to suit every customer. Working within your stated budget, we’ll suggest the roof that is best-suited to your property.

Proven Professionals

Our contractors have received training from the National Federation of Roofing Contractors. Each member of our team has completed 5-year-long apprenticeships. What’s more, we each possess CSCS cards. 


The federation has awarded us several times between 1991-2001. As a result, we're confident in the quality craftsmanship we provide. In fact, we guarantee our work, depending on the type of roof and products used. The repairs we offer are also guaranteed. The length of any guarantees may vary depending on the service rendered.

Emergency Repairs

An emergency call-out service is also available. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve the problem, we'll do what we can to prevent water damage. Our work will stop water from leaking in until further action is decided upon. We equip our vans with a variety of essential tools and materials, so we're sure to accommodate your needs.


The emergency call-out services we provide are subject to an additional cost. We'll discuss our prices with you as soon as you get in touch. In addition, we may request a deposit to cover the cost of materials. This is usually around 20% of the total cost.

Common Repairs

The common issues we rectify include missing tiles, loose slates, and slipping leadwork. Polite and approachable, our team provides seasoned advice while answering all your questions. What’s more, we endeavour to keep disruptions and mess to a minimum. Once we’re done, we’ll sweep the area to ensure it looks as tidy as when we first arrived.

Roof Surveys

We're equipped to carry out thorough roof surveys. That way, we'll be able to tell you exactly what is wrong with your roof. Our work is useful as a first or second opinion. It is particularly good when you are selling a property, or mistrust the work of a previous contractor. Once we've surveyed the roof, we'll produce a comprehensive report. Of course, we'll also recommend the best course of action.

Building Control

Whether you require repairs or a brand-new slate roof, our team is on hand to help. For new roof installations, you are welcome to involve your local authority’s Building Control. However, this is not typically necessary for the services we provide.

Making an Informed Decision

You may decide to opt for repairs rather than an entire roof replacement. This is an affordable alternative. However, the final decision is yours to make. To help you make the right choice, we’ll bring a catalogue along. That way, you’ll have all of your options in front of you. The tile repairs we offer include ridge and verge fixes, cement work, and lead repairs.

Dry Ridge Systems

J.L. Hewlett Roofing Specialist also specialises in the installation of new dry ridge systems. Insufficient air flow is the cause of many roof problems. The systems we install allow roofs to breathe, preventing condensation build-up. These systems come highly recommended, and are used by all major building companies. Plus, this innovative technology reduces the need for future repairs. It is suitable for domestic and commercial buildings alike.
