Business Profile

A.I. Lancaster BSc Hons C.Eng Roofing Expert

Over 40 years in the industry. As seen on local TV, BBC / Granada. Local, honest reliable Craftsman. Meet me personally, benefit from my long term expertise & judge for yourself.
Over 40 years in the roofing industry starting my career in the local authorities and then moving onto the Craftsmen Roofing Group in the 70's where I was the contracts manager in our very own family owned business until 2009.
I am proud to say I have trained many local tradesmen throughout the Ribble Valley who came to me under the National Trust Historic Restoration Training programme, many to this day have remained in the industry but unfortunately moved out of the area. However, happy to say to start their own successful businesses or remained with the Trust.
Obviously now I am semi retired but I am still involved in the industry and will carry out your domestic roofing repairs, supplying you with a detailed estimate and itemised billing with a fixed contract price (with no hidden extras). Just like the old days and as it should be.

Feel free to come and see me in my workshop, I am still based at Bold Venture Works to the rear of Clitheroe Road, Chatburn or telephone me direct.

"New re-roof."

"I have just had a complete re-roof undertaken by Mr. Lancaster.
I cannot fault in any way his approach to the problems I was having. He is extremely professional, but explains everything in an easy to understand manner. The work was done by Iain and his team quickly and efficiently, taking into account all aspects of the job, plus leaving the area clean and tidy every evening. I could not recommend Mr. Lancaster more highly. He is a true expert in roofing and a pleasure to do business with. Thanks Iain, I am very proud of my lovely new roof. K.S."

"In Safe Hands"

"Thanks for the excellent work just finished today on my roof. Ian has seen to a new ridge tile system, a number of small repair and maintenance issues, and most urgently, repairs and modifications to my chimneys. At every stage he has kept me well briefed, and overall it has been highly reassuring to know that he keeps a careful eye on the 'health' of the whole roof."

"In Safe Hands"

"I'd like to express my appreciation of the work just completed on my end terrace property. The main aim was to give me a new ridge tile system, and make some much needed repairs on my chimneys. It's all been done to a very high standard, and along the way many minor issues of repair and maintenance have been addressed. The most reassuring thing is that all along, Ian keeps one fully briefed as to what is being done, and he clearly looks after every detail, and the overall 'health' of the roof. A job well done - and not in the best of weather this last week!"

"He is a totally professional expert and I would recommend him with full confidence"

"If you are looking for someone to repair your roof, look no further than Mr. Lancaster. As our experience showed, quality of workmanship matters and everything has to be completed to the highest standards demanded by him. We called on the services of Mr. Lancaster when our roof started to leak. Little did we - or he - know what was being asked. On examination, he found that we had a mobile home style roof on our detached property. Worse was to follow when he discovered 2 older roofs still in place underneath this one. He explored every possible avenue, undertaking extensive research and sampling, before he was happy that he had found the best solution for us. Old roofs were removed and panels - existing and new ones were re-fitted with a refractory pigment glaze. Extra work was undertaken on the chimney stack and dormers to ensure that the whole area was watertight and completed to the satisfaction of Mr. Lancaster. Everything was clearly explained as the work progressed."

"Excellent service from start to finish!!!"

"I really can't believe how quick and efficient Ian was with my roof repair. He came out and gave me a quote making sure I understood exactly what was being done, so I knew straight away my roof was in safe hands. The job itself was done to a very high standard with no mess left behind. No false promises and a really friendly service.

I will definitely recommend Ian to anyone that's requires his services."

"Excellent workmanship"

"If you are looking for a roofer of excellent quality, look no further than I.A.Lancaster. This is an expert who prides himself with his work , never leaving a tile unturned. His expertise in planning and preparing the work is above none other roofers. He is FIRST CLASS, reasonably priced , and gives quality for money. When he has finished the job, the site is left impeccably clean, something which other workmen fail to do. I strongly recommend Mr Lancaster , he has re-roofed both my house and kitchen. He finishes the work on time , leaving it completed in good time. C Hitchon Clitheroe"

"Came on request. Highly knowledgeable gentleman"

"Mr Lancaster put my mind at rest and gave me good advice. Carried out temporary repairs, stopped the leak in my daughters bedroom. I have now engaged him to replace my flat roof and lead valley gutter. Many, many thanks. A true gentleman"

"Another Expert Professional Service from Mr Lancaster"

"A big thanks once again to Mr Lancaster and his small but efficient and very polite team. Old school to say the least.
After downsizing Ian has just completed a new roof on my bungalow and converted a flat roof to pitched. The whole job looks splendid together with its new gutters and very important for me, no maintenance fascia finishes.
Would not hesitate to recommend. Tremendous engineering skills from planning consent to completion.
We are delighted, thanks again."

Mr & Mrs McLean, Whalley on 10 May 2016

"Highly Recommended. Very Reliable. Everything went in writing. Repairs done on time as promised"

"Thank you Iain for all your expertise and planning. I think it is fair to say you took on a problem no one else would even consider, those are the words of my architect.
Many thanks again to you and all connected. It will be a major loss to the roofing industry and local people the day you finally retire.
All the very best."

Alec & Ann Cowie on 8 August 2016

"Top Job - Top Team!"

"If there were 10 stars we would award 10 out of ten! We have been very impressed by the professionalism, quality of care and workmanship. From our initial contact the advice, freely and comprehensively given, convinced us that we would be in safe hands. The project was very well managed and Paul and the team undertook the work in a very efficient manner, being careful with our property, and producing a very neat and sound new roof. Upon completion the site was left in a tidy condition and from what had been done before, we were not surprised; all concerned obviously had pride in their work.
Finally, once again we thank you for a job well done!"

Ray & Val Fairwood on 18 March 2017

"Roof Repair"

"Ian and his team have made a stirling job of sorting our my ancient roof, which was badly in need of repair as a result of wind and rain damage over many years. Professional, helpful and good at keeping me in the loop at all times, I now feel confident that my roof can withstand whatever the weather has to throw at it. And no more mopping up of puddles on the window sills!
Many thanks"

Jenny Palmer, Twiston on 7 April 2017

"Thank you Ian very much for the recent work carried out on our roof. We experienced a good service from yourself and your men and we are happy to say that the problem seems to be solved."

"May I thank you and all your staff for the swift and professional service that has been supplied to me right from contacting you through to the completion of the job."

"We will be pleased to recommend you to anyone requiring any roofing work to their property."

"We cannot tell you how much we appreciate the care and attention given"
