Mark did up old house for us. He talked us through every stage. Sometimes it was not easy accepting things were in a worse state of repair than we thought but on inspection it always checked out.Mark is helpful and explains things very well so you understand what is going on. To be honest I have learnt so much from discussions with him on jobs that I feel fairly confident I can spot problems myself before they become to big a disaster these days.
Cliff jones from Sidmouth , July 30, 2018
Mark and team did excellent job on our roof leaving everything spic and spam before leaving, very likeable team we could recommend at any time Cliff & Anne Jones
Jennifer Harper from Sidmouth , December 10, 2017
A team from MFS completed fixing new roof felt and replaced tiles in efficient, friendly manner, and cleaned up afterwards - a job well done in five days.
Jennifer Harper from Sidmouth , October 26, 2017
They cleaned the moss off my roof valleys. Did not have to wait for job to be completed.
Don & Anne Jones from Sidmouth , June 29, 2017
If a job needs doing, it should be done properly. Mark Small and his team achieve perfection in all they do. They work with utmost efficiency and skill, are polite and friendly, offer advice when asked and always clear up after a job has been completed. Mark leads a truly excellent team who cannot be surpassed.
Marian D from Sidmouth , June 21, 2017
I have just had Mark Fater Small to give my house a complete redecorate outside. Mark and his team have done a lovely job, and I’m delighted with the result, and would definitely recommend them to all.
Dawn Merriman from Sidmouth , May 30, 2017
We have used Mark for a number of jobs and cannot praise him enough. Excellent service, he is always willing to assist in emergencies and all his work is completed to a high standard. Would be happy to recommend him.

Excellent service, Came out very quickly for a very small job.
Also larger work done. Very pleased and would recommend him.
D Saunders from Sidmouth , January 22, 2017
I own a number of properties and I have no hesitation in recommending MFS Buliders who have carried out maintenance and repair work for me for several years. The firm owned by Mark Small is knowledgeable, helpful and competitive.
Jennifer from Sidmouth , December 23, 2016
I can't say how pleased I am with them. The whole workforce were extremely good and cleaned up well after themselves. I really can't praise them enough and I'd certainly use them again in the future.
Graham S from Sidmouth , December 10, 2016
We had a garden wall built. They did an excellent job with no mess and very good value for money. Mark and his team are friendly and trustworthy.
Annie Eaton from Sidmouth , October 10, 2016
Mark is good and trustworthy. I've just had him round to check on my guttering and roofing before the winter. You can really trust him not to do things that don't need doing.
Susan Sykes from Sidmouth , June 11, 2016
I had a problem when a friend took out my Velux window and was unable to fit it back in!

I phoned Mark, he explained how busy he was but still came first thing in the morning and fitted it for me. Would definately not only recommend but use in the future.

Thank you
Caroline Brown from Sidmouth , February 23, 2016
Our small but much needed guttering job was carried out promptly and without fuss, despite MFS being extremely busy and in demand, for all the right reasons. We will definitely be using MFS again for more major work as soon as they are available!
(Anon by telephone) from Sidmouth , February 15, 2016
Mark was up within the hour of calling. Did a superb job, sorted my leak for me and cleaned up afterwards. Very worthwhile, sensible prices.
Brian Diffey from Sidmouth , February 7, 2016
High quality, professional service carried out in a pleasant manner. Would definitely recommend and use again.
Fuller from Sidmouth , November 21, 2015
roofing work neatly carried out and job left clean and tidy
A Parker from Sidmouth , November 18, 2015
For Roof repair and exterior decorating. It was evident early on that these were the right people to do the work, and it was worth the wait to get them. They are in demand, but that's for a good reason. More than happy with the final result. Polite and more importantly, very good at what they do.
C Powell from Sidmouth , November 15, 2015
Just a small guttering job but MFS happily carried it out quickly and courteously, leaving everything neat and tidy. I would certainly recommend them.
Ian Cartwright from Farway, Colyton , November 14, 2015
Although the work we required was not large it was dealt with promptly and at a reasonable price. We would definitely use this business again.
Mrs A Syvret from Sidmouth , September 2, 2015
Extremely pleased with the work, also with the service. Very very courteous, and he managed to squeeze in my precarious job although he is incredibly busy at the moment.
Peter Lee from Sidmouth , September 1, 2015
MFS have just completed a substantial job - 3 months work at a property that had been neglected. They have done a fantastic job.
Alan Slade from Sidmouth , August 31, 2015
Mark and his team were very quick to respond to my roofing emergency, they left the site clean and tidy and gave me good advice about avoiding future problems. The cost of the work carried out was very reasonable and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
ann and graham liverton from sidmouth , May 15, 2015
Very prompt, friendly and personal service. Quick to respond in an emergency .Good workmanship. No problem seems too small. Thoroughly recommended
Carolyn King from Sidmouth , February 27, 2015
Very pleased with a transparent and competitive quote followed with a professional job done by an efficient and very pleasant team.
Peter Byrd from Sidmouth , February 13, 2015
We contacted MFS before we moved into our home, having previously lived in the Midlands and not knowing local builders. Mark gave us advice before we moved in and he and his colleagues moved in to start work almost on the day we moved it - as we wished. There were a variety of jobs, beginning with the roof, and including work on several rooms. This latter work entailed skilled plumbing, electrical, carpentery and plastering. Mark arranged for the various tradesmen to call and the whole operation ran like a military operation. Mark kept us fully informed of progress at each stage. The work was done to a high quality, with minimum dirt and disturbance to the rest of the house, by personable tradespeople plus Mark's own colleagues. The price for the total work (which had expanded considerably since Mark first visited the house as we requested additional work to be undertaken) was less than I had expected.
We cannot speak too highly of this company which is returning later in the year for pointing and external painting.
Brian Ashby from Sidmouth , October 20, 2014
Very reliable. Thoroughly recommend.
David Gale from Colyford , September 24, 2014
Mark first came to us during the Christmas holiday. He climbed onto our roof in foul weather and soon resolved our problem.
Recently he came to repair our garage roof.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his boys for their professionalism and politeness. All work is thoroughly explained and completed with minimum fuss. I wouldn't look for a roofing expert anywhere else!
Mrs Naylor from Sidmouth , September 12, 2014
For a paved path and drive: Excellent workmanship. Delighted. Highly recommendable family business.
Streeter from Sidmouth , May 7, 2014
Mark has rescued us twice over last couple of years when our roof leaked after extreme rainfall. Fast efficient repair. Highly recommend. Friendly. Reassuring.
A & L Wright from Budleigh Salterton , April 14, 2014
Very pleased with your prompt and efficient service and will be happy to use your company again.
Mr & Mrs Flower from Sidmouth , March 6, 2014
Mark and his team did an excellent job removing our chimney and replacing broken ridge tiles. Very polite, professional and hard working.
We would certainly recommend them to others
Jo Frith from Sidmouth , February 11, 2014
He did a marvellous repair job for me in Sidmouth. He took photos of the damage he found and of the repairs he did so that I could be happy with things and have evidence for my insurance claim for storm damage. He uses cushions under his roof ladders to ensure that there is no further damage to the roof.
titherington from Sidmouth , January 10, 2014
MFS came to repair tiles on my roof and mend the gutters. They came recommended to me and I can now highly recommended them too. How great to see a family run business with father and sons and all with the same kindness, everything was explained to me and the bill did not come as a surprise. I would recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Many thanks boys.
Margaret Hislop from Seaton , December 18, 2013
Mark has now completed several jobs for us. We have found him honest. His work is meticulous and he always leaves everything very clean when finished. The crew are great. Have already recommended him to others.
K Beake from Sidmouth , December 16, 2013
Very pleased with the time, effort and work quality provided by this company.
Richard Davey from Sidmouth , November 25, 2013
Thanks to Mark and his great team for getting our much-needed roof and chimney repair done. (This, an "antique" tiled roof).
Their care and attention to detail, convivial and professional handling of the work, including clean-up, is appreciated.

Mark also came out in adverse weather conditions to rebuild wind-damaged garden fences.

Mike S. from Sidmouth , October 8, 2013
Mark and his team have recently completed two separate roofing repairs to my property and I am very pleased with the finished results. I would have no hesitation in asking Mark to undertake future work
Mr Dyer from Exeter , October 2, 2013
Mark and his excellent team worked professionally tidily when working on our house. Would definitely use MFS builders again.
Mr. & Mrs. D. Clarke from Sidmouth , July 16, 2013
[For laying of slabs]
I am missing them! The whole crew were extremely polite and efficient at all times. Every day their work area was left extremely tidy and, when the job was completed, the whole house fascia and windows were cleaned down and left spotless. We fully recommend this company
Norman Davey from Sidford Sidmouth , June 15, 2013
Having found ourselves the landing site for a couple of seagulls, Mark ‘MFS’ was called to assist. Fortunately the birds had only just finished their building work and their cement was not quite hard. With his thoughts on being dive-bombed he ventured to the chimney stack, removing their recently installed nest and installed our kind of nesting defences. Fortunately these seemed to be young birds who had they been more mature, would have been on the attack, but they watched with presumed astonishment as all their handy work was demolished. Well done Mark everything as planned till he spotted loose flashing and a broken tile, following a brief consultation repairs were carried out then and there. First class; Mark’s right on the mark! Thanks.
Chris Bradnock from Harcombe , May 31, 2013
Mark Fayter-Small has provided us with excellent service resolving some roofing problems we have recently been experiencing.
He took time to research the problems thoroughly before providing us with a quotation. He explained in detail what needed to be done and advised that the price would only need to be reconsidered if, in the course of working, repair-work beyond that already identified was discovered.
Mark himself set his team of workmen very high standards and they were clearly all of them capable and hard-working as well as being a pleasure to have on site for a couple of days. Mark kept us informed of how things were going and invited me to climb the ladder to inspect the work being done. The team completed the work on time and cleared up at the end with great care. We appreciated their expertise, courtesy and cheerfulness throughout the operation- a challenging job well done at a reasonable price.
Christopher Kelly from Sidmouth , April 18, 2013
We would recommend Mark Fayter-Small to anyone looking for a good honest down to earth roofing company at an affordable price. MFS resolved our problem ingeniously, and saved us a potential bill running into thousands of pounds had we not got them in first. Mark secured our roof mounted solar panels with tailor made bracket and anchorage to keep it tight and secure. Prior to MFS arrival we suffered sleepless nights disturbed by loud vibration noise when it was windy. Now it is lovely and quiet, we are genuinely delighted.
Douglas Hay from Colaton Raleigh , October 15, 2012
We asked MFS to give our ageing roof a 'makeover' to keep it in good repair. Mark and team came when they said, did a meticulous job, cleaned up afterwards and charged a reasonable price. Recommended!
R Mott from Sidmouth , October 12, 2012
For a Summerhouse Concrete Base.
MFS Builders and Roofing Services have recently completed a concrete base for us; there was great attention to detail throughout, no mess was left by the excellent team who did the work and the result was both attractive and a perfect fit for the summerhouse; all in all we would recommend MFS thoroughly.
Nick Cooling from West Hill , October 8, 2012
Having used MFS Roofing Services for a number of drainage and roofing problems we can recommend Mark and his excellent team for meticulous and effective work. Mark himself proved to be versatile and ingenious but thoroughly practical.
Mr and Mrs Rawlins from Sidmouth , August 14, 2012
MFS quoted a very reasonable price. They ended up doing more work than originally anticipated, but only charged as per the original quote. We found them very friendly, very efficient, and very helpful.
Geoff D from Sidbury , August 2, 2012
MFS Roofing have just successfully completed the restoration of a botched up installation of solar panels by a firm outside our area. It demonstrates the merits of a recommendation that I took from your Green Book. MFS have completed a first rate job under difficult weather conditions.
Linda K from Temple St, Sidmouth , August 1, 2012
Mark kept us informed at every stage when on site. Recommending where the original quote would be changing. The roof is very old and the repairs he did have been great.
