REED was established in 1999 by owner and Director, Nick Reed who grew up locally in Little Gransden. With now over 30 years experience, Nick is a highly skilled and well respected leadwork and restoration roofing specialist.
Having started his career as a roofing apprentice aged 16 years old working for a family run business, Nick quickly learned his craft. He was willing to graft, eager and worked hard to develop his skills and knowledge of the trade.
“I really enjoyed putting the time into the job because of the satisfaction I got out of seeing what my work produced. I have been lucky to have had some great mentors in my career, people I still look up to. The strong work ethic I had instilled in me by my boss remains with me today.
He recognised my potential to run my own business, he felt I had developed exceptional knowledge and skill, he encouraged me to start REED and I’ve never looked back.
I'm driven, I’m passionate about my job and I have been privileged to work on some amazing projects, restoring the beauty of some historical properties, all with a story to tell. I continue to enjoy learning new techniques and working for some longstanding customers.
We have a great, reliable team, with some of the lads having worked alongside me for almost 20 years. I have always taken pride in passing my knowledge to anyone who is keen to learn the trade.
I’m proud of what I put my name to, I’m proud of what we continue to achieve as a company and the high quality standards we maintain.”
