What Clients had to Rat About

Thanks for the great service yesterday. The guys worked hard and sorted out our problem even though getting the sides of the ceiling clean and re-laying the insulation was a bit tricky. I can mention that Sydney the foreman was very professional and did his best to meet my expectations.

Baie dankie aan Roof Rats. Ek het gisteraand vir die eerste keer weer kon slaap. Dankie vir julle geduld met die dans van die rotte. Dankie Corle – vir jou vriendelikheid. Jy is die die regte persoon op die regte plek.
