Complete Repointing of Rear Exterior
Replacement of two Roofs
I can’t recommend BARL highly enough. This was a significant project that involved repointing the entire rear house, replacing two roofs and repointing the pavers in the back garden. The repointing actually required a rebuild of the entire upper section of the house, which made this a large job. BARL were 100% professional, very neat and did an outstanding job of communicating the status of the project and why the works they were undertaking were necessary. At the end of the project there was nothing that was left undone- something I have never experienced with other builders. Worth every penny!

Brickwork and Roofing to Prevent
Leaks and Structural Defects
BARL were thorough and professional throughout every stage of the process. Communication was excellent from owners and onsite supervisors. The brickwork and roofing repairs were carried our to the highest standard of craftsmanship. The areas that were leaking internally have now dried up thereby solving long term problems. Builders were courteous and considerate throughout.

New Roof
We needed a roof restoration for our Victorian terraced house which included new slate, parapet wall restoration, repointing of chimney stack, and replacing rooflights with new Velux windows. The end result is fantastic and we are very pleased with the quality of the work. David and Lee from BARL are straightforward and easy to work with. The team members doing the work were conscientious and hard working. If you need a new roof you can’t go wrong with BARL.

Wall, brick and downpipe and waste pipe replacement
We needed emergency repairs on a wall that was leaking to the inside of the house. David came quickly to quote and was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, suggesting how the issue could be rectified with the least work and disruption. David’s brother Lee provided a clear description of the issues with photos and quotes. The team who completed the work were timely, courteous, skilled and always cleared up thoroughly. Comms were great throughout and David is clearly en expert. Would definitely recommend!

Repointing and Brickwork Repairs
BARL did an excellent job addressing a couple of issues highlighted in my recent building survey. David knew exactly what needed doing at the initial visit and took the time to explain the work that could be carried out. The job was done within timeframe expected and to high standard. Very professional, would recommend.

Extensive Roof Removal and Replacement
BARL are knowledgeable, capable and very experienced roofers, who I highly recommend. BARL offer high-level customer service and competency. From day one, the BARL team were accessible, honest, and easy to work with. The highly skilled labourers were respectful, friendly, efficient and always tidied up at the end of the day. I am extremely happy with totally watertight, properly insulated and incredibly smart roofs. It was a pleasure to work with BARL. They know exactly what they’re doing.

GRP Cap on Flat Roof
Very happy with the work on our flat roof. BARL put a GRP cap on our leaky flat roof, and we’re very happy with the results, and the way the job was carried out. The quote was reasonable, work started/ finished on schedule, and they were pleasant to deal with throughout. I’m not a buildings expert but I do have some experience with trades and I saw how neat the job was at various stages. The boarding was cut and laid very accurately and the GRP layer is very neatly finished. And that bit of roof has stopped leaking! Thank you.
