Customer Testimonials

I cannot recommend Richard highly enough. He is always friendly and is very knowledgeable about everything to do with roofs and guttering of any age. He doesn't suggest things are done unless they are clearly needed and his work is completed to a very high standard with very competitive pricing. What more could you ask for.

Richard is a first-class roofer; knowledgeable, dependable and competitive. We have a Grade II* listed manor house, the roof of which is neither cheap nor easy to maintain. Richard works with sensitivity and care and his small team share his dedication and interest. They are a joy to have around. And they charge a fraction of the competition for scaffolding! Cannot recommend more highly.

Richard and his team did a fab job from start to finish. Came to quote, were friendly, explained each part of the job fully, polite and neat workers. very happy with the job done and would recommend.

RKS have just finished a full re-roof at our house and we would certainly recommend Richard and his team. They have done a first class job and also helped us resolve some unrelated issues with the property.

Richard conducts all aspects of his business to an extremely high standard, which includes his attention to customer experience, and this sets him apart from other tradesmen.

RKS fully deserve the excellent feedback that they receive.

Cure It, the GRP roofing system which we use, is issued with a 20-year warranty. The product is a fully-formulated, wet-laid, GRP waterproofing system. It is highly flexible and is fully bonded to the roof substrate. The system will be resistant to any wind uplift that could reasonably be expected during the product's lifespan. The Cure It waterproofing system can be used for waterproofing applications of almost any size or complexity. It has the ability to produce different finishes, such as non-slip surfaces, and the product can be finished in a range of different colour options; this means that GRP roofing is now a popular and viable alternative to traditional roofing systems used previously.

Solar tubing using Day-lighting Systems provide a compelling alternative to artificial lighting, bringing the benefits of piping brilliant, natural sunlight to both new and existing buildings. These products can transform homes, offices, schools, factories, hospitals, in fact almost any building that requires additional daylight; whilst at the same time reduce energy consumption, costs, and your carbon footprint. A Solar tubing System works in a similar manner to a window; the brighter the day outside, the more light you receive inside.

The eaves of a house are the part of the roof that overhangs the edge of the walls, keeping water clear from the walls, and preventing problems with water and damp seeping through into the building. To protect the rafters, boards are added to the edge and the underside of the eaves. These also provide a firm base to which to attach gutters. These boards are known as fascias and soffits. Over time, weather and ageing can cause decay, and you may find you need to repair your fascias and soffits. There can be problems with mould growth or with rotting wood, or perhaps the boards become discoloured or begin to peel and start to look shabby.

RKS Roofing Contractors as a company carry out all types of re-roofs - from main roofs and industrial buildings to small porches or outhouses. Our qualified team of roofers are able to carry out work in traditional and new methods. Slate re-roofs - Slate is a natural product unlike many other roof products; it is more expensive than artificial man-made products i.e. concrete tiles but has a greater life span and is exceptionally durable in comparison. Slates have an expected life span of 75 years compared with as little as 12 years for artificial materials such as concrete tiles.

Using solar panels is a great way to generate clean and renewable electricity to power remote appliances, or even the average home. The main form of solar cells in existence today is solar hot water panels. Solar water heating systems allow the use of free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. Most solar water heating systems come with a 5-10 year warranty and require little maintenance. Every year your solar panels should be thoroughly checked for signs of damage in-keeping with the warranty.

Traditional roof lights have been used for many hundreds of years and have been heavily developed over the years. They are now available with modern double-glazed, fully openable roof windows and as fire escapes. Sky Lights have brought life to many otherwise unusable roof spaces and most are a good maintenance-free method of introducing daylight into loft and roof spaces. We also provide roof repairs in surrounding areas York, Malton, Pickering, Scarborough Shipton, Driffield, Thirsk, Beverly, Hull, Selby, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Tadcaster, Wetherby and Leeds.
