LR building were preferred contractors to undertake works to my property as they had the most competitive quote. Lee was very professional, explained everything clearly and seemed like a nice, genuine fella. Works carried out was repointing to external brickwork, repair guttering and facia and repair to chimney stack, which were all done to a very satisfactory high standard. The job was done in the time stated and Lee was neat and tidied up as he went along. The company had good communications and always answered my telephone calls. I would definitely use LR builders again.

Lee and his team did a great job on taking the wall down and opening the room up to give more space. The work was finished on time and to a high standard. I was really impressed with Lee's expertise and helpful advice in working out the best solution to my needs. Highly recommended.

I contacted LR building after a nightmare with another builder who left the job in an unsafe way Lee visited the site and as soon as he see the problem he temporarily made it safe with supports there and then, which I was grateful. The work continued 2 weeks time and was completed and passed by building control who also he assisted with. I cannot thank Lee enough and his team, who not just completed and rectified the other builders mistakes, but for making my mind at ease. I fully recommend LR Building Knowing you have a professional builder who knows what there doing.

Lee's team have done excellent work on our house. After having a Damp Survey carried out, Lee came round and assessed the work to be carried out. A further visit with Lee's foreman was arranged. The work mainly involved uncovering the damp course, due to the ground being too high outside of the kitchen. Lee's team were friendly, very hard-working and always left things clean and tidy at the end of the day. They happily answered any questions we had and were always helpful. They stayed in contact via phone to keep us informed of arrival times while checking this was convenient. An excellent team. Job well done!

Lee and his team have done a great job on the improvements and repairs needed on a newly purchased Victorian end terrace house. We had damp problems in living and dining rooms, caused by high external ground levels. After having a number of building companies recommending damp injection solutions, Lee was the only one to get to the root cause of the problem. The company did a great job with external drainage and internal waterproofing and re-plastering. Did such a good job also put down a new engineered wood floor for us. Although not the cheapest initial quote, we feel the work is well worth it.

I felt totally relieved and in the right hands having contacted Lee after a building company badly supported our chimney . Lee was very forth coming and helpful with information and guidance on my initial contact and well before we had decided to engage his services. On engaging his service he organised a team to start the work quite quickly, which after having the breast supported for a number of months felt like a real burden lifted. I can now complete on the decorating so the end of the tunnel is in sight.

We had a growing problem with a damp outside wall, caused by failing guttering. We also had a concern about a gap under the slab foundation. Lee responded quickly to our call and immediately provided a diagnosis. The gap under the slab was only the route of a soak away pipe, but Lee recommended we dig out a little to take the soil further below the damp course and level the ground out - which I did myself. He recommended replacing some of the guttering - which we knew needed doing - but he didn't ever try to suggest that all of it needed doing (as some builders might!). The job was done quickly and effectively. We'd definitely use them again.

I found LR Building Services on Which? Trusted Traders. From start to finish the service provided by Lee was excellent and very professional. Communication was very good from the onset and Lee managed to fit me in fairly quickly in reference to installing two air bricks and fixing a supporting joist for my bay ceiling. The workmanship was very good, and the work was carried out on time and cleanly. The price quoted for the job was competitive. Overall I have had a very good experience working with LR Building Services.

Chimney breast alteration

After finding LR Building through Which? Trusted Traders, I contacted Lee to discuss some alterations I wanted to my kitchen chimney breast. From my first meeting, I was really impressed with his professionalism. Whilst the alterations were a straightforward job for their experienced team (increasing the height of the chimney opening and inserting a new lintel), a past experience with another builder had left me feeling a bit nervous. By carefully explaining exactly what they planned to do, Lee and his amazing team immediately put my mind at rest. Martin (Action) was an absolute pleasure to have on site and despite it being a dirty job, somehow my kitchen ended up looking cleaner when they’d finished than it did to begin with! I couldn’t be happier with the finished work and would highly recommend LR Building.

Chimney Stack Support

I found LR Building via Which? Trusted Traders. I purchased a property where the removed chimney stacks were incorrectly supported at loft level and did not meet current building regulations. I contacted Lee Ricketts who was very professional and knowledgeable. He visited the site and told me what was required to rectify the problem to meet current building regs. Lee and his team did the work to a high standard and he also liased with my Structural Engineer and Building Control who certified the work carried out to meet the correct regulations. I would highly recommend LR Building and his team to anyone who is looking for a quality building team.
