Comments from consumers who have used this trader
This is the second occasion I have used David (Hobson)and I would highly recommend him. This time I required all new gutters and downpipes as the current gutters were too small to handle the rainfall we were getting. David advised me on the required size and also the best product for stopping leaves etc clogging up the gutters. David arrived on the day and time agreed. I always find him a pleasure to deal with. He is reliable, efficient and the quality of service is second to none. Customer service is top notch.
Just a small job replacing a broken roof tile but completed very promptly and efficiently preventing further weather damage.
David provided an excellent service in locating and repairing water ingress through our velux windows. Highly recommended.
Polite, courteous and professional. David (Hobson) did a fantastic, very neat and tidy job removing, cleaning and refitting (replacing where needed) ridge tiles. Even cleaned out the gutters afterwards for us. No hesitation in recommending him. If you want any work done on your roof give him a call.
Very pleased with these tradesmen and their work.. Took great care to do a really good job. Its obvious they take a pride in their work and it shows. Reliable, punctual, professional, did a great job and cleaned up very nicely afterwards. David and his son Dale were very nice to deal with, courteous, respectful and approachable. Felt very comfortable with them. Highly recommended.
Really nice guys, seems like a good job - all looks sturdy and installed to an excellent standard. Would definitely use again in the future.
Good to deal with, gave written estimate, job completed within a few days of initial contact, appeared very thorough.
A really good job and easpecially thoughley cleaned up afterwards. As an older person this was important.
Dave is very reliable and efficient. I only rang him at 9am. He arrived to assess the work. Was back by 1 pm to undertake the work ( loose slate tiles and ridge tiles needing pointing). The work was completed by 3pm for myself and my neighbour. I could not be more pleased. Highly recommended.
First class service from start to finish, David explained clearly what the problem was related to and also his recommended remedy. While we were discussing the original problem another issue was pointed out which had escaped my attention. Hobson's quote for the work was quite competitive. Both jobs were completed on the day specified and a full clean-up was undertaken when the job was finished, the clean-up even extended to vacuuming all dust from the outside areas under where they had been working. I can honestly say Hobson's carry out a really excellent service.
David and his team arrived very promptly to inspect the required works, These were then completed the very next day to a very high standard with zero disruption to the household. All rubbish was cleared away and everything left as it should. Very polite tradesmen that I would highly recommend and would definitely use again. Thanks!
Hobsons were very polite and considerate. They went quietly about their work and caused little disruption to the household.
Following recent bad weather it was apparent we had a leaky roof. After a phonecall at tea time Dave then came round within 24 hours to assess the work. He gave a very reasonable quote (Saturday morning) for not just the immediate repair but also some other issues he identified. He then came back to undertake the repairs on the Monday which were done to a very high standard.
Carried out the work efficiently, good price and very trustworthy. Sometimes(my experience) tradesmen seem to be more expensive if they are highly rated but this was not the case with David.High recommendation.
Mr Hobson came highly recommended and he didn't disappoint. He is very thorough and reliable. Yesterday was the second job he has done for us. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.
Mr Hobson did a very good job and I would recommend him to anyone.
Having had a bad experience with roofers I decided to try the good trader's website.David kept me informed about the work every step of the way. The estimate was the price I paid.They arrived on time,rang the day before to make sure I hadn't changed my mind or plans for the day. David along with son Dale gave me every confidence they knew what they were doing and how to complete the job . They did just what they said they would do and tidied away all the rubbish Thanks David and Dale I would definitely recommended you to do a great job for anyone.Give them a ring 📱
Recently Hobsons Roofcare did a roofing repair on my home. They did an excellent job, They were honest and reliable and completed the work with the minimum disruption. I strongly recommend this firm to anyone who needs roofcare, and have already passed on David Hobson's contact details to others. Thank you again.!
Mr Hobson has done a great job, competitive price and great customer service highly recommended
Finding a roofer for many is a daunting task due to so many horror stories. However, Hobsons Roofcare were brilliant. David Hobson keeps his word, comes when he says he will and gives a fair assessment of the work needed. He saw I had an emergency and dealt with it in a fantastic manner whilst I was away as I had a pre booked holiday abroad. Very happy with the service provided.
Following storm damage we needed to find someone who was dependable and would do a good job which this company dealt with in a speedy and efficient manner. Mr Hobson was well mannered and gave us confidence that he would do a great job, and he definitely did not disappoint us. Great value from a trader I would have no hesitation in recommending.
Great company,they can be relied upon to carry out roofing to a high professional standard.No mess was left,all cleaned up. We have used this company in the past and would recommend them to anyone. A nice team who did exactly as they said on the quote.
Fantastic service! A great tradesman for a prompt punctual reliable service and excellant repair work. Thank You.
Called David out to assess a leak in our roof. David was very reliable, turned out when he said he would, quoted what we considered a reasonable price and didn't deviate away from it. We were very pleased with the work that David did, and certainly wouldn't hesitate to use him again or recommend him to friends. The quality of the work certainly seems to speak for itself, as despite weeks of rain we have been water tight. Thank you David.
Contacted Hobsons to rebed the ridge tiles, repair cracked roof tiles and repair a leaking gutter. All work carried to satisfaction and they also cleared out the guttering as well. Turned up when they said they would. Would highly recommend Hobsons as they are friendly, imformative and rates are very reasonable.
Came highly recommended by a friend and was quick to quote/ complete work to prevent further damage being caused by leaking roof.
Father and Son very efficient service.
Would wholeheartedly recommend this trader and welcome anyone who wants a reference. Dave and his team resolved our roofing problems efficiently and produced a roof of the highest quality.
I would recommend this trader to anyone for good workmanship, with no problems, just got on with the job, they did an excellent job thro'out. The job was to clear moss from the roof, but they checked all the roof for any faults which were corrected, they did not charge for this extra work. Very polite & courteous. They deserve to be on the Wigan Council Good Trader Scheme list.
David arranged a date and time and kept to it no waiting or excuses he turned up and did an excellent job. He and his son worked hard from arriving to leaving, there was no mess they were so careful and clean. Would recommend this roofing firm to anyone. Thank you David
Quick response from David and another excellent job, would thoroughly recommend.

David Hobson and his team were punctual, neat and tidy. They worked tirelessly to complete the repairs needed within the timescale and price quoted. Happy to recommend.
very friendly and with a reasonable price and quality work
Always felt I was dealing with a professional. Work was completed, when a secondary problem appeared. I contacted Dave Hobson at 8.30 on a Saturday morning and he immediately text back and was at my house in half an hour. He arranged to come back Monday and complete this second phase of work, although relatively minor it required some materials and a return visit and he made no additional charge. Excellent all round !
Excellent. Went the extra mile & also cleared out the guttering on the adjoining house. Friendly, prompt service & value for money. Very happy. Would recommend & use again.
Thank you David for doing such a first class job, tradesmen with your level of quality and dedication are very rare. I will be recommending you very highly to all.
Excellent business providing great customer care, outstanding value for money and excellent standard of work. In a trade which sometimes gets a bad name this company turns it upside down. Great experience, if you need a roofer phone Hobson's Roofcare, you'll be glad you did
All works carried out as promised in a most efficient and promt manner. we are totally satisfied and pleased with our roof.
I contacted David Hobson to give me an estimate to repair and put right the poor work that the previous contractors had carried out on our roof. David was friendly, punctual and explained everything he was going to do. They did an excellent job in rectifying the problems that we had been left with. The site was left clean and tidy and all the rubbish taken away. The work was carried out to a high standard of workmanship David and Simon carried out an excellent job and we are very pleased that the roof has finally been fixed professionally. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hobsons Roofcare
Wow a tradesman that phones and turns up exactly when they said they would and they also tidy all rubbish up before leaving. I chose Hobson’s roofcare after reading all the good reviews on Wigan good trader which I have used before. I had slates that fell of my roof and left a hole and required some immediate work he came and did a temporary repair straight away then arranged to come back and do a permanent job along with some other work I required. He did a great job and I would definitely recommend him and would not hesitate to use him again.
Just had whole roof re-tiled including new roof tiles, felt and batons. Excellent price. Additional work done where necessary. Before, during and after pictures provided. Superb job and clean up afterwards. Efficient and friendly service. Would certainly recommend this company.
Mr Hobson carried out a repair to a botched job, would recommend
Excellent work, good disposition ,neat and tidy.
Very prompt and a very friendly service. Excellent job carried out. Would defiantly recommend.
Once again Hobson Roofing provided a excellent service, both in terms of quality of work, cleanliness, explanation of what they were going to do (and how). I know that they will do a great job.
employed this firm for 18years, for large roofwork and small jobs ie gutters, always promp efficient and good value on each occasion, no hesitation in reccomending this company.
I am an elderly person and I was treated with respect, Mr Hobson went beyond the call of duty when doing my job nothing was too much trouble. An excellent job was done and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
David Hobson provided an excellent service and I would recommend him and his team. We received a quote and the next day he attended and repaired a leaking roof. I also asked him would he look at gutters which were overflowing. No job was too small and he cleared all the moss from them. They cleared all the area after they had finished to leave it tidy and clean. I would definitely use his services again.
Excellent service. Prompt and kept me informed about cost and when the work would be carried out. I am very satisfied and would definitely recommend this business.
Leak repaired quickly and efficiently. We were shown what was done to cure immediate problem and given recommendations on what would be necessary to avoid further problems with roof. Very satisfied with the work.
We are delighted with the excellent work we have received from Hobsons Roofcare. From receiving a quote, within 24 hours, to completion of a full re-roof. Every element of the work was executed with attention to detail, outstanding proficiency and flawless logistics. The building supplier along with supporting services (skips, scaffold, etc.) clearly carefully chosen by David Hobson, to complement his high standards demanded. David and his team were always most amiable, with a determination to give customer satisfaction. Best quality materials were utilised and the work was done unhurriedly but with efficiency and expertise that finished the job within the five days specified. The finished roof looks great and the dry ridge tiles and dry verge not only enhance the appearance but virtually require no maintenance. The site was kept clean and tidy sweeping up at the end of each day and on completion the scaffold platforms were swept clean leaving the scaffold as it was found but also ensured there was no risk of debris being left on site when scaffold was dismantled after site vacated. A first class job from a first class company. We have no hesitation in recommending Hobson Roofcare, deservingly Good Trader of the Year.
Hobsons Roofcare did a great job re-furbishing our roof, and provided excellent customer service. They responded quickly to queries, were punctual and worked around us when necessary. Highly recommended.

MINIMUM INTRUSION AND MAXIMUM RESULTS. Would recommend. Team are returning soon to do further work. Would only do this if I was well pleased with their work.

I would highly recommend David for his professional approach and high quality of the work completed.
very happy with the service very efficient and they tidy up afterwards. I trust David and his team to give a good service.
Excellent service. Nothing too much trouble, goes the extra mile.
Having recently renovated my house, I now needed my double garage re-roofing. Not having been too impressed by the previous roofers I employed on the main house I decided to look for tradesmen with higher standards. Hobsons roofcare stands head and shoulders above other roofing companies on this website so I decided to give them a try. Even though my expectations were high, David and the roofing team still managed to exceed everything I could of hoped for. I'm just dissapointed I didn't find them sooner to do all my other roofing work! Even though I am an engineer, and a fussy one, I don't think I could suggest any way that Hobsons roofcare could improve anyl aspect of their business. Quality, punctuality, cleanliness, price, respectful... all here in abundance. It's quite easy to see why they are number one, and quite rightly so.
Would use his firm again and have already recommended him to friends
So pleased I used the Wigan traders site to find this firm; the ratings are definitely accurate. Mr.Hobson and his staff worked in a thoroughly professional manner. We got a very competitive quote, an excellent job done and all the debris was taken away. Absolutely recommend this company.
Very friendly and reliable work men, above that did a fantastic job. Highly recommended
First time We have used WGT scheme, and not been disapointed. David was a great help when our chimney had blown off and had damaged the neighbours roof,during the storm in February. He was extremely quick in getting the job done and gave me advice when it came to claiming off the house insurance as it was the first time I had ever done it and had no clue what to do. A great customer service, from a great company. would definately recommend!!
My neighbours and ourselves had our ridge tiles replaced by Hobsons roofcare. We are more than pleased with the quality of the workmanship.David and his team were excellent workers, efficient, well mannered,clean and more than efficient.

I chose Hobson Roofcare from the recommendations on the good trader scheme and I am pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed with the service received. David Hobson (proprietor) was punctual and polite; he offered good sound advice and provided a competitive quotation in a very short space of time. Once commissioned Hobson Roofcare were punctual and carried out the works to a high standard and within the timescales quoted. On completion they removed all unwanted materials and cleaned up after themselves leaving nothing for me to do. Additionally other defects on the roof were reported and fixed at the time of the work. I would recommend Hobson Roofcare and should the need arise will have no hesitation in using their services in the future.
