Recommendations for someone to repair our tiled roof please - we're about 15km from Hania. Thanks

I'd recommend a Russian who roofed a holiday apartment we had built some years ago. The only contact detail I have now is a mobile number 6949 144 502 which I hope is still active. (Details are sparse as I lost some records in a computer crash about five years ago.) While constructing the new roof he also fixed a leak in the main house roof that had supposedly been fixed by three previous contractors. Victor's repair was still OK when we sold the property five years later.
He's actually a (Russian) qualified architect and when he came to Crete around 2000 and roof construction was about his only manual skill. Over the years he's acquired an excellent reputation as a builder and has established his own company.
I think he works mainly in Apokoronas area but will probably travel reasonable distances if necessary. I know he's still around as I met him in Kalyves a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks Filippos, but his number must have changed as the message says 'the number you have called does not correspond to a subscriber'. If anyone else knows how to contact him please let me know. Thanks JC

Apologies, Jane, put it down to age. The correct number is 6946 144 502.
Trawled through the pile of old business cards I keep and found Viktor's. Had to go to Zilimbinakis (Maria's) for something and asked them as that's where I'd seen V a few days ago. They checked his card against their records, "this is definitely his number: I used it two days ago." Home again I checked my previous post and spotted the mistake.
Old age,m eh!

That's the one; spoke to Viktor's daughter who said he'll contact us to see if it's a feasible job for him. Fingers crossed. Thanks again.
