Ruaidhrì and his team were excellent tradesmen and very professional (and easy company) on site. Although there were some unfavorable weather conditions the job was completed efficiently and to an extremely high standard. Ruaidhrì provided excellent advice and solutions to any problems that cropped up along the way. Having viewed some of his other projects and internal restoration work, I would certainly look at using Redfoot for future restoration work. I would have no hesitation to recommend Redfoot construction for any roofing project and wish him well in the future.

We had an extension built back in 2007 and since it was completed we had been getting a leak once or twice a year and always in different places which eventually it came apparent that the pitch was too low for slate and should have been tile. In 2019 we eventually decided to strip the roof so I contacted Ruaidhrì whom I knew and he couldn't have been more helpful and professional. We installed the Nulok system with a Brazilian natural slate as he assured us that the pitch wasn't an issue with this system. We are delighted with the finish especially that we could put back on a natural slate. I would highly recommend Ruaidhrì and guys.

My wife and I bought a listed property in Tramore,Co. Waterford in 2017. There was a lot of work to be done on the property but the roof was our priority. The house is very exposed over looking the sea so we needed to be sure the work would last. One of the quotes we received really stood out from the rest giving great detail, Redfoot, Ruaidhrìs knowledge and passion were to the fore from the outset and this was backed up by the quality and finish of his work. He even helped and advised us when dealing with the often tricky issue of conservation of the listed building. We have since had Ruaidhrì complete more work on our home and have readily and happily recommended him to family and friends.

My wife and I installed the Nulok roof on our home in Roscommon. The project was quite complicated requiring multiple visits at various stages of the build the Redfoot team made themselves available as needed so as not to cause any delays. They carried out their work to the highest standards and we are delighted with the final product.

Having nearly 30 years in the game, I have seen a lot of products and quite frankly, this range is of the highest standard and value for money. Not only that, visually it is exceptional.

Thank you for your professional and helpful approach to the whole process. We know these projects are never easy, but we are very pleased with the final result. Do you have a specific document which spells out the 50-year guarantee provisions? We are not planning on selling – ever! – but one day this will happen, and we hope the roof will outlast us! Thank you again for your attention to all matters we raised during the building process.

A number of friends have commented favorably on the Nulok ceramic stone product all in the belief that ours is an authentic slate roof. There have been a number of storms since completion of the roof and I am pleased to say there has not been a leak.

Our new roof has met or exceeded all expectations and looks sensational. I have had a number of favorable comments on the finished look from friends and neighbours.

Improved the appeal of our 1885 two storey building, as well as rectified the major roof leaks we had put up with for some time, predominantly due to the cost of the new slate to the roof. We found the product to be a cost effective alternative… highly recommended to others in a similar situation.
