Hi Lance

Word of mouth goes a long way. I am so glad to have engaged your company Slates and Shingles, having a heritage listed house, with the original slate roof of 160 years. I am amazed at the transformation through quality and professionalism, the timelines that you worked to were unbelievable. I can see the cottage and roof lasting well past my time

Thank you again for such an amazing effort.

Dear Lance

I want to thank you and your wonderful workers Anthony and Gary for the great job you did on repairs to our lovely old church building in Main Road, McLaren Vale.

The mini tornado that we experienced certainly did a lot of damage to the roof, tearing off the roof capping and 50 slates , some of the slates finishing up 400 metres away.

Anthony worked with tremendous skill ( and safety) replacing the slates one by one using your scaffold and ladder system. What a relief I did not have to take the fence down for a cherry picker to come in and do the repairs.

The building is used as a music centre which is known as The Singing Gallery. We have a lot of precious musical items inside and I was very worried with wet weather predicted but you all got the job done in time.

I can recommend your dedicated team to anyone in need of roof slate repairs

Just a short note to say thanks for your work towards replacing the roof on our house at Flagstaff Hill.

The initial discussions and guidance were quite beneficial to us as we were launching into an area where we had little experience. We were pleased with the explanations and details you gave us to assist in making our final decision to go ahead with what for us was a risky project. The supply of sample shingles to take home and assess with what we had was appreciated. All along the way we were kept well informed by email and phone calls to keep the project on track. The supply of materials and the keeping to timelines was all on track.

We are very pleased with the final result and was most appreciative of the fine work done by Ant throughout the work period. His patience and care with the task ahead of him was a good sign of a real craftsman at work. Please feel free to encourage others to check out the finished job here at Flagstaff Hill. We feel confident that we will have a quality roof that will last well into the future and add value to our home. Once again thank you to you and Ant for a job well done. Looking at the project today, it gives us great satisfaction knowing that our roofing problems have been resolved.

In this era of everything ‘instant and new’, it is often difficult to find professional tradesmen that are willing to take a thoughtful approach to an existing building with a recurring problem. I was fortunate enough to find this combination with Lance Reynolds, owner of Slates and Shingles Roofing Service. Having years of experience roofing, repairing and matching new to old on heritage and architectural buildings, Mr Reynolds and his team were selected to reroof my home. This was not an easy project. The material required to replicate a 40 year old roof needed to be light weight yet sturdy to replace an existing shingle type material, no longer manufactured. After much searching an appropriate form of shingle was found, imported and installed. The crew (including tradesman with overseas heritage building experience) were efficient, safe and caring of the house environment. The work was completed on time and the area left clean of any debris.

Thank you for your professional commitment to my home.

I just wanted to say thank you again for all the work that has been done on my house. I am very happy with it all and it looks fantastic.


I am very happy with the new shingle style roof that Slates and Shingles Roofing Service built for me to replace the old roof on my house. My roof is of a challenging hexadome design and the quality of the work performed is of a high standard. Thanks to both Lance and Anthony for their work and for the care they showed in respecting my property.
