Jarvis and Womack Ltd are roofing specialists to the construction industry, established in 1870 by its founders Mr Jarvis and Mr Womack, based at a yard in James Street, Rotherham.

In 1903 Jarvis left the partnership leaving Womack to build a flourishing legacy for the future generations of his family, incorporating the firm as a limited company in 1926.

Now in its fourth generation, under the directorship of Mark Mitchell and his brother, Womack's great grandsons continue to enjoy an enviable reputation within the roofing industry for true professionalism, award-winning quality and superior roofing. Jarvis & Womack are very proud of their heritage and continuing with tradition recently took on a fifth generation securing its future as a family run business.

Due to continued growth, 1986 saw the company relocate from its original premises in Rotherham to offices in Swinton, South Yorkshire. The new premises became the base for a programme of continued growth and development, culminating in a recent relocation to purpose built offices on the Manvers industrial park, which will enable us to continue providing the best service from our team of specialists within their field.

In 1997, Jarvis and Womack Ltd were the first and only Roofing Contractors in South Yorkshire to achieve accreditation by BM TRADA (then CQA Ltd) to BS EN ISO 9002 and have maintained and developed their quality management system to the new ISO9001:2008 Standard. Since then, they have achieved accreditation under the OHSAS 18001 standard for Health and Safety Management and gained CHAS registration.

The core strengths of Jarvis and Womack are for new build projects for the Construction Industry, using traditional craftsmen skills for Tiling, Slating and Random Slating on both large scale and smaller projects.

Current and recently completed projects include large private care homes in Barnsley, Leeds and Knaresborough for J & W Lowry of Gateshead, two care homes in Dewsbury and Heckmondwike and a special needs housing development in Huddersfield for Wates Construction, all as part of the Kirklees Excellent Homes PFI scheme, and the reroofing of Rothwell Primary School in Leeds. This is in addition to numerous private housing developments for Taylor Wimpey, Bovis Homes, Strata Homes, Keepmoat Homes, Barratt Homes and Redrow Homes . Other completed projects include the Army Foundation College Harrogate, Kirkstall Abbey Leeds and Sheffield Railway Station.
