Dear Matthew, On behalf of the Wardens of St Matthews Church, Manly, we wish to acknowledge the high quality of the work and professionalism shown by MLR Slate Roofing in the roof replacement of our Church and Old Rectory. The Welsh Penrhyn slate looks beautiful and the work was completed on time and on budget. Your team were easy to work with, very co-operative in the way they undertook the project, (which we admit is a logistically challenging site)

Tim Evans

St Matthews Church

We had been wanting to restore our terracotta tile roof to slate and were searching for the perfect fit for quite a while. At first, we were hesitant about the huge investment but now, we are more than happy with the workmanship and outcome of the project. Matt and the team were professional, efficient and took the extra mile to ensure our home was completed with a high standard.

Mel Heinrich

Matthew and his team provided a professional, efficient and friendly service. Matt was able to source beautiful Penryn slate to replace our 150 year old roof at a time when it was hard to obtain. The roof pattern included 2 different designs which they cut beautifully by hand. They did an excellent job, we couldn’t be more pleased.
