We always use Which? Trusted Traders whenever possible and Gary Bailey most definitely lives up to this accolade. Gary and his team have worked tirelessly on a complete renovation of a Victorian 3 bedroomed terraced house in Roath. His work has been exceptional and the previously dilapidated house now has a real WOW factor. Gary project managed the whole process as we are not local and provided us with details of excellent extra tradesmen where necessary for painting & decorating, carpets, kitchen and bathroom fitting. He also came up with good ideas and suggestions which we hadn’t thought about for improving the property. His pricing was fair and honest, his work outstanding and communication excellent. Gary Bailey is the best – don’t even consider using anyone else!


I contracted Bailey Building & Roofing Ltd to replace an old GRP roof with a proper tiled roof as well as replacing some old wood in the porch with white PVC sections. The weather during the work was atrocious with rain falling most days and thus no construction could be carried out. Gary Bailey was regularly in touch with me to advise if the two builders would arrive weather permitting. Building work excellent, communication good.

We employed Gary Bailey on recommendation from a trusted tradesman. He replaced and insulated our very large and ancient roof, and also did building work . He has a permanent team of skilled builders and roofers, and uses only trusted contracted-in plumbers and electricians etc. Our confidence in their honesty and integrity was important as they had full access to the house over several months. They were meticulous and Gary took an obvious pride in their work, which led to him doing several things free of charge (outside the quotation) for his own satisfaction. He was always readily available had we any concerns or questions, to which he gave his prompt attention. He showed and explained every stage of the work, carefully explaining our range of options. We recommend his firm highly.

I’ve already posted a review for this tradesman. He solved a pervasive damp problem in an old extension, as well as renewing the whole house roof. He was fair and thoroughly professional. His team were skilled, and Gary took great professional pride in the work they did. He was recommended to us, and we were very impressed with the quality of the work.You may possibly get cheaper, but I don’t think you’ll get better.

To whom it may concern.

I can recommend Mr Gary Bailey and his team as very reliable workers and first class tradesmen they have done work for me over the years and I have always been pleased with the result. They are very sociable and offer good advice and suggestions on aspects of building work. On completion of work the area is always left clean and tidy and resulting rubbish removed.

Dear Mr Bailey,

I am writing to say how very pleased we are that we decided to use your firm to renew our roof. Poor quality work some 15 years ago by another roofer meant that we had water penetration in a number of places. Having been caught out once before, we were determined this time to ensure that the job was well done. By the beginning of this year the need for action was becoming urgent and I would have been happy to undertake the work myself (in the intervening years had learnt quite a lot about building and roofing and therefore know how it should be properly done) but currently I have too many other commitments.

Your name was recommended to me by someone for whom you recently provided a new roof. Your quote was neither the cheapest nor the most expensive, but it was full of detail and gave us the confidence to believe that the work would be carried out to the standard I would expect from my own work.

The job involved stripping the old tile roof, construction a new slate roof, renewing all the flashings, facials and bargeboards, and installing several roof lights. We are delighted with the outcome. Your people turned up for work regularly every day; they worked steadily and unobtrusively; and – most importantly – they worked to high standards which have resulted in a roof which looks excellent and is likely to remain very sound for many years.

We have no hesitation in recommending your firm for any other similar work. Prospective clients are very welcome to see our roof and, if they wish, call to talk to us about it.

Yours sincerely

Dear Gary Bailey,

We wanted to write and extend our thanks and appreciation to you and your builders for the excellent service on our conversion from garage to living room. The whole operation ran smoothly and efficient with minimal disruption to our daily lives.

Lee and Richard, the two builders, were consistently conscientious, professional, courteous and most helpful.

Please feel free to use this letter as a recommendation.

We wish you continued success and a happy new year.

Yours sincerely,

Mr and Mrs A Frost.
