Heritage Slate Repair - The Church of our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima in Cork, Ireland

Job Location: Shanakiel Rd, Sunday’s Well, County Cork, Ireland
Roofing Services: Heritage Roofing, Slate Repair

Project Description:
A few months ago Robert was invited to Cork in Ireland to partially repair a slate roof. The Church of our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima in Sunday’s Well really is a stunning building packed with loads of history.

Built in 1875 and consecrated in 1879.  The Church of our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, formerly Saint Mary’s, is a Gothic Revival church which occupies a prominent position on Shanakiel Road. Interestingly, it changed use from a Church of Ireland church to Roman Catholic. Designed by W.H. Hill, architectural quality is apparent in the scale, form, features and materials used in its construction. Francis Wise donated more than £6,000 towards the building fund. The combination of snecked limestone and ashlar dressings provides interesting textural detail. The artistic execution of the carved detailing on the exterior, especially in the door surround, enhances this imposing church.

The slates on the roof are known as random Blue Bangor slates. Bangor Blues are widely recognised throughout the roofing industry as the finest material to provide roof covering also known as natural Welsh slate. The reputed lifespan of a Bangor Blue slate is up to 500 years.

Roof Repair Contracts For Lidl's UK

Client Name: Lidl’s UK
Job Location: Thornton Heath, London
Roofing Services: Roof Repair

Project Description:
No job is too big or too small for Gecko Roofing. We can proudly say we are the appointed repairers for Lidl’s UK. It all began when a Lidl’s in our local area had problems with their ducts and roofers they had previously hired unfortunately failed to fix the issue. Then they found us. We had 8 hand crafted, custom ‘duct flashings’ made and fitted them to ensure a great resilience to water penetration all with a 10 Year Guarantee. Problem solved! We also localised some broken tiles scattered around the roof and made two bespoke diamond shapes with the new German imported tiles. Safe to say this job was a milestone for us here at Gecko Roofing and we can’t wait to get stuck in to the next project.

Re-Roofing Project

Client Name: Cedric Alfonso
Job Location: Tottenham, North London
Roofing Services: Re-Roofing

Project Description:
A great job completed, one of the happiest customers we have had as he has been stung by previous builders quite badly. This roof has very old clays that were at the end of their lifespan causing damage internally. There was never a membrane installed and expanding foam was everywhere. What a finish! Includes a 20 Year Guarantee.

Flat Roof Repair Project

Client Name: Spa Hill Allotments
Job Location: Croydon, South London
Roofing Services: Roof Repairs, Torch-on Felt Flat Roof

Project Description:
Originally this roof had leaks in various places and it was clear a new roof was necessary. We removed all of the old felt and managed to salvage the deck making the job a lot more affordable. As you can see this turned out very well and came with a 10 Year Guarantee.

Most of these local communities do not have a lot of support from councils so now we donate money to help them grow.

Low Pitched Roofing Project

Client Name: Charlie and Tessa
Job Location: Dulwich, London
Roofing Services: Pitched Roofing, Roof Tiling

Project Description:

Despite being rejected by many other roofers, we took up the challenge of making this dream become a reality. For what seemed impossible to many others, our specialists in low pitched roofing managed to complete this project successfully. 

The tiles requested were almost impossible to be placed at the specified angle. Nevertheless, we managed to give it a perfect finish by designing a roof underneath these tiles.

Garage Roof Conversion Project

Client Name: Richard and Eileen
Job Location: Croydon, South London
Roofing Services: Flat Roofing

Project Description:

The client’s specifications were to match the neighbour’s roof and the garage door to a certain extent which led us to use a red/brown felt. Additionally, we used new OSB boards throughout with a 2 layer system comprising of top quality materials. The wooden fascia around the structure was primed and painted with Dulux Black gloss finish with tongue in groove white panels above the garage door. This ensured that the structure had a refreshing exterior look. We provided the client with a 10 year guarantee on this project.

Flat Roof Overhaul Project

Client Name: Binny
Job Location: Croydon, South London
Roofing Services: Flat Roofing, Roof Repairs

Project Description:

This project is prime example of trying to refurbish the roof to last as long as possible in the most cost effective manner. A coating was applied in hope but it didn’t help, 2 rafters had to be replaced along with insulation costing this poor client twice the amount due to previously using a cowboy. The finished product is better than the customer anticipated. This also came with our 10 year guarantee.

Robert was brilliant from start to finish!!! AAAAAA+++++++++++++++++++ Great communicator, contacted my tenant and did everything he said he would do: 100% for integrity. The research using his drone was an extremely effective way of communicating and highlighting the problem areas for which I was very grateful. The work was well executed and he showed a lot of interest in making the job as professional and rock solid as it could be. I felt the work was of good value and would highly recommend using Gecko and will certainly be asking Robert to help as and when needed on all my BTL properties in future. Thanks also for the many before and after pics for the tax man! 🙂 Thanks Robert and good luck with everything!

The Gecko team came to work on my leaky roof in May 2020. They are a great team, extremely polite and professional. Robert is a very experienced roofer, highly conscientious and takes a real pride in doing a job well and finding solutions that work. Steve who assists him is a grafter and very keen, these guys work really hard. Jade on the PR side of things is a delight, keeping communication open, hugely accommodating and pleasant to deal with; they were totally sympathetic to my need to socially distance and did not come through my house. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough and I am delighted with the quality of the work done.

Customer In South London
These guys are top notch, did a previous job for me in the summer which has made a huge impact, due to the terrible weather i had a terrible leak, Rob and Jade were on hand the next day, sussed out the issue straight away and fixed the damage, would highly recommend!
Marc Voigt
Customer In Croydon, South London
Dont go anywhere else! We were seriously let down by other "reputable" roofers and wish we had gone to Gecko at the outset. Our original builders had done a shoddy job on our loft extension and their poor workmanship showed after a mere 2 years. Gecko remedied their shoddy work and our roof is now watertight. Thank you again Gecko!
Neelam Nasir
Customer In Addiscombe
Robert, Jade and Stuart replaced part of our roof (the flat roof above the bay window). They were prompt to respond to our enquiry and were able to get the job done within the week. Robert used the drone to check the state of the part that needed replacing and checked the whole roof while the drone was up there. We appreciated the photos that they took throughout the job that showed what they found when they removed the existing roof and showed their work through the job. This was very thorough! We really appreciated their friendliness and their professional ways. Robert clearly knew about roofing and is passionate about it- and about doing a quality job. Thank you Robert, Jade and Stuart for all your hard work

Customer In South Norwood
Robert, Jade and their team did an amazing job on my roof repairs. From their drone inspection to finished job the experience was great. They were so friendly it was like having mates over to do the roof. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
