I am delighted with the attentions received
Customer Service
After a number of let-downs by other roofing companies, the usual not turning up for appointments to quote or turning up and never hearing from them again, I made use of the which? Trusted Trader and made contact with First Roofing and Building. My requirement was the removal of moss, gutter cleaning and general checking of my roof. Anthony visited and provided advice, he also informed me his company, after the physical brush removing of the moss, would apply by spray, the anti-moss chemical. A service other roofing companies did not seem to be interested in providing. There were some delays due to the horrendous run of bad weather we were experiencing, however, Stacey in the office kept me updated by emails. I was delighted with the attention Nelson, Shooey and Ian provided when on the job. I was shown by video that my chimneypot had come loose, from its mortar bedding, so that was attended to as well. The two days the job took were really hot, summer days and the team were up on that roof taking minimum breaks. I was kept informed by Nelson as to progress and the lads worked well as a team. I am delighted with the attentions received, my roof looks cleaner than it has done for many years, and I can only say First Roofing and Building are well deserved of the which? Trusted Trader inclusion. Thank you, FRBS.

Excellent service from start to finish.
Customer Service
Trying to get a roofer in February after a storm proved to be a monumental task, however, FRBS were the exception. I was contacted quickly after my enquiry and made an appointment for someone to come out. James arrived when he said he would and gave me advice on my problem rather than a hard sell. He identified the cause of my issue and we discussed solutions. Work went ahead as planned and on the date agreed. Nelson was assigned to site manager and he kept me updated and informed throughout. We had some enforced changes to plan, not least because there was snow, pouring rain and high winds but the team worked through some pretty awful weather to make sure my home was always water tight. Mid way through it became apparent that what I really needed was a new roof - squirrels, birds and (judging by the damage) hippos had made their home under my tiles! This massive change was dealt with impressively and in just over 24 hours I had a new roof! From James, Anthony and Nelson overseeing work, Mario and his scaf team to Connor, Gary, Davie & Stevie the roofing and construction lads I was genuinely impressed with their commitment and efforts in making sure the best possible job was done. FRBS were not the only company I contacted but they were the only company who arrived when they said, did what they said, for the price they said, and that can not be understated.

A highly efficient complete roof replacement
Customer Service
We have a 1970s house with a lot of roof, which was redone about 2 decades ago. We have known from comments made and repairs needed that all was not good, but various tradesmen over the years have just replaced small parts. We asked FRBS to look at part of the roof where tiles were broken. They are a family business and every time one of them went up on the roof they took a video with a voiceover explaining what they were seeing and what the problem was, which they shared with us. That, and the fact that they were prepared to look at the bigger picture, has been a game changer for us. Though the job started as a few tiles and some pointing they were able to show us the need for a more comprehensive overhaul, which was not a surprise. As they have a precept that once they start a job they will finish it, they took it on wholeheartedly and gave us a new roof with beams and joists within a week. Incredible organisation and team work and tidied up every night and at the end. So we had an intensive experience of highly professional people who were friendly and accessible, have done a great job and whom we will use again and would highly recommend.

Work completed clean and efficiently
Customer Service
James and his team carried out work on roof the day following my call. The gutters and valleys were cleaned out and repaired by Conner and his young assistant. Both were very pleasant and all mess was cleaned after job completed.

Replacing gutters
Customer Service
We needed the gutters replaced and contacted FRBS. They are a local contractor and provided a quote immediately. The workers arrived within two days to erect the scaffolding. The roofers arrived a few days later and started removing the old gutters. They then installed UPVC fascia and soffit. Later that day they started installing the gutters. The job was completed the next day. The workers did a great job and went the extra mile.

Great job by a great team
Customer Service
A great team. They were very informative, friendly and quick. The job was for our elderly mother and they kept her and us involved from start to completion. A very professional business and would recommend their work. We were all delighted.

Roughcast garden wall.
Customer Service
FRBS completed roughcast work on our house to a very high standard we were so pleased we asked them to come back and to roughcast a garden wall to match the house. The work was completed very quickly. The builders cleared all debris and cleaned and cleared their work space. They were friendly and hard working. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend FRBS.

Excellant Work
Customer Service
FRBS has just completed a full overlay of my soffit and facia, along with replacing gable end caps for the roof and replacing all gutters and downpipes. Their approach and work has been truly excellent; completed on time, to the quote and technically "right on the money". I have had full discussions with both the FRBS owners and the guys on site on options and progress. Couldn't ask for more. Really pleased with the work and the house looks pretty good. Would recommend them to anyone.
