‘Major roofing works on our home, a Grade II Listed
Farmhouse in Lancashire’
Haydock Slating were appointed the sole contractor to undertake major roofing works on our home, which is a Grade II listed building. This was a complex and challenging job which involved major alterations to the roof structure, the removal and replacement of the existing roof, sourcing and matching the stone slates, rebuilding chimneys, and replacing timbers and gutters. The work required listed building consent and so the materials and construction had to be carefully controlled and monitored.
George Haydock ran the project extremely efficiently and professionally and kept us informed at every stage of the works. George and his team were always polite and friendly and though having scaffolding and skips on site for almost three months had seemed a daunting prospect, George and his staff were a pleasure to have on site. We were very impressed with the way everyone conducted themselves and how helpful they were. They even cleaned and tidied the site before they left every night.
Haydock Slating completed the project on time and they have done an excellent job. This is what the property must have looked like 300 years ago when it was first built and we are delighted with the skill and craftsmanship that has now ensured that our home will be preserved for future generations.

‘Renewal of Church Roof and conservation work St James’ Church, East Crompton, Shaw’
I wish to place on record the Parochial Church Council’s and my own personal thanks for the roofing work your company has carried out.
We are all most appreciative of the work undertaken over a period that we had hoped would be kind in terms of weather. The weather this summer was truly awful and made your job far more difficult. However, despite the weather, all pulled together to achieve completion with not too much of an overrun. The quality of the work carried out is excellent and we are very pleased with the end result.
Your workmen were impressive, not only in the craftsmanship produced, the quality of which I have never seen bettered, but also in their general nature and behaviour. The closeness of our Childcare Village meant that the children were in close proximity much of the time. There were no reports of bad language and in fact the Management team of the Village are very keen to express their best wishes to all who worked on the project.
Thanks once again for all your efforts from the P.C.C., myself and the Congregation of St. James East Crompton.
