Roofing Refurbishment on Student Accommodation

Student Accommodation

 The team at DPR are quite a multiskilled lot. We like to employ engineers who are capable at a few trades. We find wide reaching experience always seems to make them better roofers, and we relish the chance to get them on the team.

Occasionally though we have the opportunity to employ their wide reaching skills on none-roofing jobs. Which happened recently with a client in Wakefield.

They contacted us as they needed a roofing refurbishment on what will be a student and training accommodation. But, along with this they also needed a large number of velux windows installing. In usual circumstances they would have had to approach two separate contractors to carry out the work, one for the roof, one for the windows. But due to the wide ranging skills of all our engineers we were able to oblige this particular client, and take care of both jobs ourselves.

They also needed a lot of smoke vents fitting, which we just took in our stride.

By doing so we are saving the client time, effort and more importantly, expense. Work on the site is ongoing, and we will report back once the job is done.

DPR Roofing have been repairing and installing roofs all over the Yorkshire area, which includes Wakefield, for nearly 30 years. During this time we have carried out a simply vast number of jobs for commercial clients. We have learned that there is no job too big, small, complex or simple for us.

To find out how we can help you just give us a call on 0113 335 0043.
