Commercial Roof Replacement in Ipswich

When we were first approached by a company in Ipswich they thought that to replace their entire roof it would be too costly. Their call had been in regards to an overclad, as they had heard that this type of refurbishment might be a bit more budget friendly.

Initially we did price for an overclad as requested, however following on from our discussions we had understood their ultimate goal, so suggested pricing for a roof replacement so they could see how this can be budget-friendly too! 12 weeks after receiving the PO we completed the strip and resheet with a brand new solar installation about to be installed by the JDB team. It has been a pleasure working with a forward-thinking company, and JDB are proud of the results!
