A couple of weeks ago we noticed that our next door neighbours were have some roughcasting work on their garage. One of the team working next door saw the distressed look of our garage roof and asked me if I would like a quotation for roof repairs and new roughcast. Our garage had suffered badly from water penetration over the years and some of the roof timbers had rotted and parts of the roof had begun to fall in. I had been reluctant to have any work done because of the pandemic but the dangerous state of the roof and the very competitive quotation from FRBS convinced me that we should go ahead with the repairs. The team from FRBS were working on a number of houses in the area and said they could start almost right away. We were reluctant to take up the offer as we were just about to go off for a short break but the job foreman suggested we just go and the job would be finished by the time we returned. Before we set off they had dismantled the dodgy roof and had replaced the rotted timbers and made the structure wind and watertight. We came back from our break to find our garage looking great with its new roof and fine roughcast coating. FRBS had inserted a new PVC window to the rear to allow in more light and had ordered up a new narrow side window which would take a few weeks to deliver. Although we still have a few little items to resolve we were really impressed by the way FRBS used their workforce to quickly get the job done. I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Anthony Davidson called to assess what was needed and priced the job (rough - casting my house) A couple of weeks later Peter arrived with his team and within 2 days the job was completed. The boys worked non stop and were very respectful. They cleaned up after they finished. They did a very good job and consulted me a few times to ask what my preferences were. All of the staff I dealt with at FRBS were very pleasant, including the girl who answered the phone. I am very pleased with the work done and would certainly recommend them.

Remedial work fitting bird comb under eaves

We had James and his team replace our entire roof a few years ago but had trouble with birds nests under the tiles despite the dedicated bird comb being fitted. James arranged immediately to have a team return and check and renew where required these deterants. The guys did what they could but returned as promised the following day and completed the job. There were no if so, or buts, from James just get it complete to the customers satisfaction. Thank you again for a great service.

James and his team (Gary). Completed work on my roof and I must say, the work is first class and his team are so polite and professional, I have no problems recommending FRBS for any roofing jobs, they have very high standards, which is nice to see in this depressing time. Great work guys, long may it continue. Cheers

James, Anthony and the team were very helpful and efficient from the initial quote to getting the job completed. They replaced very old and damaged guttering, fascias and soffits to a very high standard. Overall, excellent work from a very friendly and efficient team!

Roof replacement

We had a persistent roof leak and had previously used a locally recommended roofer who completely botched the job and left the roof in a worse state than before. After this bad experience we decided to use a Which Trusted Trader and contacted FRBS. We were given the choice of repairing the damaged area or totally replacing the roof. As the roof was ageing, we decided to replace it. As the team were busy, there was a delay in starting work, but when they arrived, they worked tirelessly through adverse weather conditions (snow, ice and below freezing temperatures) to finish the job. The roof was replaced one section at a time, with each exposed area covered overnight. James and his team were professional, obviously very experienced and courteous and friendly throughout. The work took 4 days and included replacement gutters. They also pruned overhanging branches of a large tree which were threatening to blow against the roof. They removed all debris, left the site in a tidy condition and returned the following week to carry out finishing touches. Happy to recommend.

After a bit of confusion over start time(communications issue and availability). The job was started and quickly progressed, however, a problem was detected part of the way through the work; this was quickly addressed with more resource being made available and the job completed in good time before Christmas as promised, despite poor weather conditions. I am happy with the result so far, the surprise of the extra work was unwelcome as was the additional expense; the team did their best to reduce my "pain".... a lesson learnt. Hopefully, any warranty work will be dealt with in a similar and efficient manner.

Thank you for the reply, We are delighted that you are happy with the full service, Additional work to complete the job does happen from time to time as we are unable to see underneath the tiles and felt. Glad we did spot this and were able to complete this for you extending the life of your roof further.
New roof.

I had a new roof. It took 10 days, with at least 2 working on it. What can I say, James and his team were fantastic. They turned up on time, worked hard and tidied up as they went. James was professional approachable and kept me up to date. On the day they finished James walked me around the property to make sure I was happy with the work. He left me contact numbers in case there are any issues but I don’t imagine there will be. I have been stopped by 3 different neighbours who have commented on how hard they saw the team work and the good job they have done which is always nice to hear. I have peace of mind knowing that my roof is sound for the winter. Thank you FRBS
