Very glad to have found Jim with all his knowledge and expertise. Job well done.
" A big thank-you to Jim for his help, advice and ultimate work on how to best fix and tie-in the brickwork between the ground floor and first floor bay windows. A big thank-you to John also who worked through difficult weather to get the job done. Very pleased with the quality of the work done and the knowledge behind the work. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his crew and will certainly call on him again if the need arises. Many thanks again."
Bay window problems!
"Saved my bay window from collapse and took away all the worry. All the team who came to renovate and repair were lovely - polite and very helpful and the standard of work and finish was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Thankyou jim and your team for all your help and advice. I reallh appreciated it. Would definitely recommend this company to carry out work."
Latteral damage to outside wall
"Honest and reliable, very knowledgeable and helpful. All the guys on site were friendly and hard working and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this firm.
Jim always took time to explain everything and go through any problems, nothing was too much trouble and the overall cost was very reasonable."
"Very competent, fast, knowledgeable for our fairly serious structural problem;
minimal disruption to our work load and out of our hair within a week, leaving
clean and tidy and fixed. Listened to and adjusted for our concerns. Good
"Before you call anyone give Jim Devlin a call. I cannot thank Jim enough after
he came to my rescue regarding a damp proof issue I had. Previous workman had
left me in a mess after doing a bodged job and I was at a loss as to what to
do. Jim is very knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble for him or his
hardworking team. Jim took away all the worry and rectified the problem. A very
honest and reliable man. Thank you Jim."
Exellent Service and workmanship from LRBS
"Our outside wall was found to be moving and cracks were showing in the
brickwork above the entrance door lintels. Jim Devlin and his team fitted joist
straps to the inside joists and to the wall and fitted helibars outside over
the door lintels and replaced faulty brickwork. In the process we discovered
that parts of the landing were affected by woodworm. Jim and his team not only
replaced faulty floorboards and treaded the woodworm free of charge, they also
fitted joist straps in the roof space at no extra cost. All the work was
carried out expertly and in the time we were quoted. In the run-up, we had two
detailed consultations with Jim and were kept informed at all times. We are
very satisfied and would re-employ LRBS for similar works. Highly recommended."
"My bay window brick work had moved and cracked,both inside and outsite, Jim
from LRBS was excellent, having taken on structural problems with these bays in
the past, he knew exactly what was needed, the work was completed by Mark from
LRBS over a few days, I'm more than happy with the end result, the finish
pointing fits in well with rest of the house. I would recommend LRBS for any
building work you are considering. Thank you Jim."
If Carlsberg made builders.......
"If Carlsberg made builders....... It would most certainly be Jim and his team.
We had recently been let down by another builder and phoned Jim (LRBS Owner)
who met us at our property and listened to what we wanted. We talked about our
plans and designs for some major structural work. Jim understood our concerns
and made us feel at ease.
We have basically had the LRBS team remove the back of our house and support
this with a steel, and through the whole process it was evident that the LRBS
team knew exactly what they were doing. With Jim project managing, nothing was
left to chance, nothing forgotten and nothing done by half measure.
Most important to Jim was our well-being and feeling comfortable in our house
while the work was going on. They were clean (beyond belief) tidy and
considerate on when we were in the property and nothing was too much trouble
I would 100% recommend the LRBS team to anyone wanting quality work without
compromise and an affordable solution."
