Builders of Distinction
Just to say a big thank you for the job of completing wall ties to 5 windows and 2 doors. We are so pleased with work and completed so promptly with the minimum of fuss. If we had gone away and left you doing the job and then come back when it was all completed we would have wanted proof the work had been done!
As you know the work was required so that we could have the windows and doors replaced. The window company we are using advised us there were no lintels and we would be at risk of the bricks slipping out of position, or, even collapsing once the current windows were removed. You not only checked this was true but went to great lengths to explain what would happen if it was ignored, windows/doors replaced or not. Plus as the work was progressing you saw that there was a requirement to speak to our window company because of what you found beneath the the mortar may have affected any measurements being used in the manufacture and that is exactly what you did do on our behalf with no added costs.
Owen who was on site completing the work is a credit to your business. Like you a perfectionist, very professional, very polite and friendly. Certainly knows his job and does it with the minimum of fuss but with a great degree of knowledge. He cleared up each evening and whilst working tried to keep everything in order so that when we had to we could move about out doors safely. Normally you groan when you have work men at your home but certainly not where Owen and yourself were concerned it was indeed a pleasure and believe it or not missed you when you were not here. My property was treated with respect, something which is a very rare trait now-a-days.
I would highly recommend your business to anyone requiring this type of job being done. Thank you Jim and Owen you were great.
“LRBS – Definitely Recommend
I can’t thank Jim, Brendan and the team at LRBS enough! The bay to the rear of our property was subsiding due to a previous poorly installed window. Jim was quick to respond for a call out to quote for the job and gave a thorough breakdown of the work required. The team not only fixed the structural integrity of the bay, but ensured the work carried out created as little mess as possible. I found Jim and his team friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend LRBS for structural work!

“LRBS – Thoroughly recommended.
Jim Devlin impressed me with his knowledge and patience when I consulted him regarding the strengthening of my house walls, and his team were equally impressive when they inserted lintels over the ground floor doorways and lintels, as well as carrying out some brick-stitching where necessary. They left the site clean and tidy, and I can’t fault the service which they provided.
“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 value.”
“Excellent 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.”
“Very Professional Team.
A previous builder had installed the wrong lintel and bodged the brickwork. The wall was bowing and becoming unstable. Having looked for a company online, which had good reviews, and had a record of dealing with structural repairs… I fortunately I found LRBS. Jim Devlin visited to survey the problem and gave a quote. shortly afterwards. The LRBS team..Master Builder, Tony and Marius were able to start work within a reasonable time period and quickly and efficiently set about the job.
I found the team to be honest, professional and efficient. They certainly knew what they were doing. They also properly tidied up on completing the work.
I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again.”
“Installing lintels above windows
We needed lintels installing above three first floor windows. Fantastic from start to finish – Jim and the team explained the work clearly, completed with no disruption and even fixed some additional spalled bricks for us.
We felt completely safe – the team wore masks and followed social distancing when interacting with us.
Would definitely recommend!”
