Great work done by Ryan and his team on my roof that needed attention badly. Essence beat the quotes given by other companies and I chose... to go with them due to their infallible track record. And jees Louise I was not disappointed. Great work done and very professional throughout. Will use more

We are delighted with the work recently carried out by Ryan and his team, Paul, Stevie and everyone, absolutely top notch! The roof looks... incredible, a thing of beauty (never thought I'd say that)... The service the team offered was very professional, they were all very pleasant to have around, tidy, helpful and considerate. The quality of the work (an entire new roof) was a massive undertaking, but Ryan was responsive to our preferences, needs and the challenges that the roof presented in a conservation area. Highly more

Very professional all round. Ryan was great to deal with and Stephen who leads the site install was brilliant. Kept well informed each day and any additional costs for rot were kept to a minimum and agreed. I would highly recommend this more

I have had daily dealings with the development and building industry for over 30 years, but I have seldom come across a company which... operates with such professionalism. From first contact to post-payment contact, Ryan and his team could not have been more helpful keeping me up to date with progress before, during and after the works. The re-roofing was completed on budget fully as per the quote. I would highly recommend Essence for your work to be carried out based on my personal experience dealing with the company and from comparative works I have seen in my professional more

Essence have just replaced the pebble dash on our chimney. The work was done quickly and with no disruption for us. They achieved a... fantastic match with the roughcasting on our house and left no mess at all. Communication was excellent, from tender to planning to completion of the work. We would definitely use Essence Roofers more

The team did a great job of repairing our roof. They totally understood that we're not in a position to renew the roof yet. They advised on... what would be best for us and carried out the repair within a couple of days! Excellent customer service and communication, would definitely recommend more

Essence Roofing and Building Services worked on the roof of my parents home, carrying out a repair to their roof and making good an... interior room that had been effected by water ingress. From initially meeting them, through a straightforward assessment and very fair quotation (which remained the price without any unexpected additions) to completion of the work, the service, both friendly and professional, was outstanding. In an age when older customers can feel uncomfortable with tradespeople in their homes, Essence provide the answer. Personable and proficient, turn up when they say they will, do the work they said they would and charge the amount they quoted and not a penny more. And all done with a smile on their face. To that end, I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending Essence Roofing and Building Services. Paul Fee, more

Why are we the best roofing contractors in Glasgow?

Essence Roofing & building services have been based in the south-side of Glasgow in Burnside since its inception.

We are a local roofing contractor specialising in installing tiled & slated roofs, slate and tile roof repair, lead-work, gutter installation & repair, rendering and roughcasting and much more.

One reason why we are the best roofing contractor in Glasgow is simply because the overwhelming majority of our customers say so. You can see our 5-star reviews on our testimonials page and everywhere else on the internet on websites such as Checkatrade, Trustpilot and many other reputable websites.

Another reason why we are the best roofers in Glasgow is that we offer a 10-year insurance backed guarantee on jobs. Now I know that some companies offer very long guarantees on their workmanship, but do you honestly believe they will honor guarantees that far into the future when the company itself may no longer exist? As members of the confederation of roofing contractors we are able to provide insurance backed gaurantees for your total peace of mind.

Our 10-year guarantee is long enough to give you peace of mind and matches what many other reputable companies will provide. Of course, we will advise you prior to any works being undertaken if a guarantee applies to the works and provide it in writing.

The final reason is actually mentioned at the very beginning of this article.

We’re local! When you call us, we are in most cases less than a 15-20 minute drive from you. There is no long commute or uncertainty about whether we will want to quote for your work. As a local roofing contractor in the south of Glasgow we want local customers and will endeavor to respond to your enquiry as promptly as possible.

Please call us on 0141 570 9152 to discuss any roofing project you may have in mind.


One of the best guaranteed roofing companies Glasgow has to offer!

Essence Building don’t just offer your standard written guarantee that many other roofing companies offer. As members of CORC (Confederation of Roofing Contractors) we offer customers insurance backed guarantees! CORC are a leading trade body for roofing companies in the UK since 1986.

They not only audit their member roofing companies but make sure they adhere to their code of practice designed to protect the public from rogue roofers and provide roofing companies with support and advice in all aspects of the roofing trade. So our membership of CORC tells our customers that not only are you dealing with one of the most highly reviewed & recommended roofers in Glasgow but your also getting the peace of mind that regardless of whatever happens you have complete safety in an insurance backed guarantee on completion of your works backed by the best in the business.

Of course, one of the reasons we are able to offer such guarantees in the first place is because of the high standards of workmanship we bring to each and every roofing project and the very low call back rate we have with regards to potential problems with roofing jobs we have completed. So don’t waste time and call the best roofing company in Glasgow!
