School Roofing Services Contractor in Buckinghamshire

Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School was founded in 1624 on the same site it occupies today. The brick and flint Cloisters, clock tower, and Chapel of Borlase share a street with Mary Shelley’s cottage where she wrote Frankenstein, TS Eliot’s house, and the original site of the Royal Military College now at Sandhurst. Our school roofing services work involved the renewal of the existing plain tile roof coverings with new Sandtoft Humber plain tiles. Associated works included the refurbishment of the clock tower, renewal of fascias, soffits, and rainwater goods, repairs to chimneys, and an extensive overhaul and repair of window frames.

Scaffold working platforms were erected in part of the inner courtyard and over busy access routes leading into the courtyard and surrounding buildings. Scaffold erection was completed during the first few weeks of the school’s summer holiday period to eliminate any risk to pupils, staff, and visitors. Material deliveries and skip exchanges were restricted to certain times of the day and needed careful management through very narrow access routes to our working areas.

Customer Reviews

I am pleased to recommend Ian's team at Acclaim Contracts for roofing work. I have completed a number of successful projects with Ian and his team and found their quality of work to be excellent. With most projects being in sensitive education settings, communication with the client is critical. Ian always takes a strong personal interest in projects which helps everyone.

I was really pleased with the company. The job ran really smoothly. Nas was our main line of communication and he was very professional and helpful. The job was completed on time, and there was minimum disruption to the school despite it being such a big job.

In terms of after-service, the company have responded very promptly to any queries / snagging issues and resolved them immediately. I think the service given by Acclaim has really been good – particularly when I compare it to the experiences that colleague Heads have had having similar jobs done by different firms.
