Roofer needed in Fareham?

Anyone know if there is a builder/roofer in the Fareham area that has the time to rescue/stick some/one tile/s back in place?

Seems every roofer has work coming out their ears

Well you're probably right! That's why they're not interesting in my little job

Anyway, I think I've found someone that seems to want to go around doing "quickies" and they're coming tomorrow. I bet they charge a fortune doing that too!

Quickies!?? (in the voice of the 118 man) Are you sure you were talking to a roofer?

You need to add the following to your costing

You can't or don't want to do it
They have ladders etc and mortar as it's not sold in fist size bags
They need a van or something to get to you with their kit
Time getting to and from the job
The fact that they should not really work off a ladder!!!!
Insurance etc etc

80 -100 cash minimum for them to even turn up

Think how much machinists charge for a breakdown repair etc on a steel shaft
