FAQs – Roofing

Ronnie is here to help!

Ask Archie

We know that it is difficult when you discover that there is a problem with your roof and that you need to find the right Edinburgh roofing contractor or company to fix it.

The situation often feels worse, because unlike other building projects, it is often dangerous or impractical for you to view the problem in detail yourself.

Of course, you aren’t familiar with the terminology that is used or the different types of roofing materials and services available. Where should you start? What might it cost? Will the work come with guarantees?

At Ronald Graham Roofing and Building, we appreciate your anxiety, and every day (for the past 50 years) we happily take our clients through their options step-by-step.
