High Quality Roofing & Cladding & Steel Frame Buildings

    Norfolk steel frame buildings (NSFB) offered a professional high quality service with over 25 years experience.
    We covered all aspects of roofing and cladding as well as steel framed buildings. However I have moved on from this now to another business called Tooltique selling Antique Tools and reconditioned tools to tradesmen and collectors.

    Industrial Steel Building Work

    We have dealt with many aspects of this business, working on many industrial steel projects for the MOD, prisons, food factories, business units etc, extending this to high end developments like multiplex cinema's and prestigious clients such as Rolls Royce. We are sure if you mentioned the type of client or type of steel building we would have done work on several of these over our time.
    Industry standards can very different from one steel company to another steel company, however due to our policy of price graded work we are maintaining very high standards. Traditionally tradesmen are paid the same price per meter yet we encourage higher standards through grade pricing. A/B/C . If needed, snag lists are then set to achieve grade A. Our Regular tradesman are very much aware of our expectations and are rewarded through administrative leanness as well as our high tech equipment. I have moved on from this now to another business called Tooltique reconditioned and antique tools to tradesmen and collectors.

    Steel Farm Buildings that last!

    Predominantly most agricultural buildings have fibre cement (Previously Asbestos) roofs and ironically there are sheeters that know how to lay these correctly. When the sheets are fitted correctly they have a longer life expectancy yet if they are laid incorrectly the strain can reduce their lifespan by over 50%.

    Other considerations are we explore with our buildings, is to ensure that our clients receive maximum capacity for their investment. Good building design and flexible thinking about development can reduce the overall price per sq metre.
    We have built all types of agricultural buildings including grain stores, metal workshops, dairy buildings such as cattle sheds or pig sheds, onion buildings or potato stores and the list goes on. We have also done a lot of steel buildings for the indoor riding schools also as well as the horse stables. We have clad most if not all types of buildings including an abattoirs as well as undertaking extensive refurbishment products for the food industry such as chicken and turkey factories.

    Industrial and Farm buildings - Refurbishment

    When it comes to refurbishing industrial or agricultural farm buildings then you need to make sure the company who undertakes it has plenty of knowledge as well as considering your position and keeping things safe. Two reasons for this would be that the company in question will need to understand the old construction and what is involved whilst understanding what new products would be best suited to the building design.
    The second and most important factor with refurbishment is that "How the refurbishment is approached" or "How to get the desired result for the lowest cost" Not by skimping on products but the way they are used and the machinery used to carry the job out safely.

    Metal Roofing and Cladding

    There are plenty of roofing and cladding companies but only a few are run by ex-tradesmen who had excellent reputations.
    With roofing and cladding it's one thing drawing up the design but unless you have fixed it for 20+ years you don't really know how to go about the job in the best manor.
    Most companies are run by draftsmen but its like food critic who hasn't cooked before trying to be a top chef, I know in the past I've bailed out more draftsmen than I care to remember.
    Don't get me wrong many of the draftsmen in charge of jobs are really nice people and are good at what they do but unless you see first hand whats involved its hard to recreate this when setting out the project. Unfortunately some of the labour out there doing sheeting jobs aren't to good at it either. In fact I know plenty of sheeters I wouldn't trust to put up my garden fence yet they still get the work.
    One thing for sure GOOD TRADESMEN DON'T LIKE BAD ONES and they certainly won't employ them, that's why you know your job is in good hands with us.
