Sheffield-based roofing specialist, Martin-Brooks, is forging long term links with expanding supermarket chain, Aldi.
In just two years, the firm has carried out roof maintenance and planned refurbishment at more than a dozen of the retailer’s stores across the North and Midlands.
Martin-Brooks was initially called in to assist with several branch repairs and thanks to its speedy and practical response, a complete roof refurbishment was commissioned at the Shipley store near Bradford. This 12-week project required the replacement of slates and external cladding, whilst minimising disruption to customers and staff.
Working alongside Aldi’s main building contractor, Martin-Brooks also carried out a similar refurbishment in Castleford. It involved fitting new tiled roofs, external cladding and a flat roofed extension on a very tight timescale. Further projects have followed, including one in Batley to correct a defective solar panel installation.
Martin-Brooks’ director, Nick Brooks, said: “We have established an excellent working relationship with Aldi, who appreciate our ability to accommodate all aspects of roof repair and flexibility to react quickly when help is required. Our remit has now been extended to include providing surveying services as part of the group’s successful programme of planned maintenance and we look forward to assisting with many more projects in the future.”
