We do take pictures of the roof you have asked us to quote for or carry out works on at the survey stage and throughout the job.  This is to ensure we can accurately capture all the details of your roof and therefore ensure we can quote accurately for the works involved.  Some of these will be provided in your quote.

We do take pictures/video of the roof of your property, which may include other parts of your property in the picture frame too.  This is for internal staff training purposes, it may be used in promotional materials and to accompany any reviews you may leave on our website.  

When the crew are working on your roof they will be taking pictures and feeding into the office.  This allows them to update on their progress, get advice on specific details and keep a track of their personal technical development.
