Roof Repair

Our roof was in a bad way. LAB Civils came to do a chimney repair and we felt confident to ask them to replace the whole roof. They didn't disappoint. Excellent job done swiftly, the team were very polite and careful to tidy up as they went along. William and his team take pride in their work and will go the extra mile to make sure you're happy with the work. Highly recommend More...

Harmston Hall is a beautiful building, but the driveway and paths around the site were cracked and potholed. Putting it right was always going to be a big job and I needed a professional company I could trust to deliver a top quality finish.

I am absolutely over the moon with the results. The resin bound aggregate looks superb and has created a finish that really sets the house off to good effect. The team, led by site manager Jack Butler, did a first-class job; nothing was too much trouble, and the end result is all I could have hoped for.

My leaking bitumen felt garage flat roof was beyond repair and needed replacing.
LAB Civils and Roofing of Doncaster were contacted and the next day William came to my home and confirmed my garage roof needs replacing
2 weeks later William and his team arrived at my home in York to carry out the job and remove the felt bitumen and all boards and install new boards and seal with Silverstone Rubber all completed on the hottest day of the year
I highly recommend LAB for doing such a professional job with a 25 year guarantee
If you want a company you can trust who I think go above and beyond then don’t hesitate contact L.A.B
it’s a 5 Star job and we are very pleased

I will start my review with a simple heading of " RIPPED OFF"
after requesting a quote on the BARK website, LAB civils was one of 3 quotes, the promise of the speedy delivery of the project and the talk that was given to me by the Director James and how professional the work would be, even though the price was the highest, i chose to use the services of LAB. this was a great mistake after the completion of the project. the project consisted of new fence, porcelain patio and 2 concrete bases for sheds.
the fence was installed unevenly, the concrete bases were concreted in a very bad state, not square not flat not level and a lot lower than the grass.
the most serious issue is the porcelain patio.
the complete procedure was wrong from start, as i have found out since, i have made enquiries from different landscapers and all agree that the patio was installed incorrectly. it appears that LAB has no experience in laying porcelain tiles.
the project was completed around mid June 21 and already the tiles are lifting, grout falling, the lime stone sub base is being washed out and the entire patio needs to be completely removed and installed correctly.
i trusted James and was promised a 1st class job.
unfortunately, the job has no class.
James's words were "we are not a couple of gipsies from round the corner"
photos will be added later to show the entire mess.
i approached LAB Civils for the correction work, i was told that they were only prepared to come back and stick down the loose tiles. VERY SAD.
i would not trust this company at all.
the agreed area tio be tiled was 78sqm but only delivered 65sqm approx. when this was mentioned, i was told the grout lines should be included in the area. this was beyond taking the P...s
my family and I are now left with this mess after paying £18,000 and now to have the correction carried out, i am being quoted £8,000. this is the cheapest quote so far.

As you know, we disagree with your assessment of what we feel was a professional and well-executed project that met all your stated requirements, but as our aim is always to leave our customers pleased with our work, we will return and look again at any issues that were included in the contract and need attention. We do not accept that the patio was installed incorrectly (and we note that you don’t name the “different landscapers” who allege that it was). I would remind you that we were asked to leave the edges of the patio unfinished as you planned to provide your own edge treatment. The fence has not been installed ‘unevenly’ – it merely adapts to changing ground levels, as do all correctly installed fences. Again, while the concrete bases were laid to within the usual tolerances, we will happily come out and consider any issues you feel need to be addressed. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Lab Civils re-laid my Yorkshire stone patio last autumn, after some initial problems the patio lookes great when the hob was finished.
Unfortunately the patio grouting suffered when we had severe frosts earlier in 2021 and had to be replaced. Lab Civils undertook to re-grout the patio later in the year when the risk of frost had passed.
They completed this task using a skilled worker in June and I am very pleased with the job. The patio looks great now.

AVOID if you're looking for tradesmen you can trust. The initial work seemed okay, but a month after it was complete, we had cracks at the top of our driveway, our garden gate has completely fallen off, and the joints in our paving has started to crack. Lab Civils have been promising to come and rectify the issues for 6 months and have never turned up once. They have not responded to my emails chasing this. Extremely disappointed with the workmanship and lack of integrity. More...

Pete We are extremely sorry that you have felt the need to write such a review. Firstly to address the delays all businesses are in difficult situations due to the Covid restrictions and we have certainly felt the impact. We have been carrying on with a reduced workforce but obviously if weather and unforeseen circumstances dictate this will have knock on delays. We try to communicate this with all of our customers during the process and would like to apologise if you felt this did not live up to the standard expected. I believe now we have arranged a suitable mutual time to rectify any issues and we hope that this will be of a standard you are happy with. Lab Civils

LAB Civils gave me a good price to overlay my existing driveway, dig out a grass area and extend the drive to this area. The communication was a little bit hit and miss, but once the work started the guys worked very hard. It was stated that it would be completed in 2 days, which it was but we had a delay between the two days due to weather. What was also great was the fact that they left the area spotless, and the new drive looks fantastic. Time will tell if it holds up well! More...

Contracted Lab Civils of Doncaster to build a Driveway for our Premises. We were told it would take three days. Reality was three weeks after agreeing to start on the 12th/10/2020. First day excavating began the friendly machine operator didn't know what to do as no one from the office gave him directives. I had to explain how it was to be done. After the wall was built eventually geo membrane was laid but not all over properly. Some work stopped because of weather. Demand for part of payment was met by me. Then nobody turned up no messaging either. I enquired to Jim Douglas son of the Boss. Couple of days later some work continued. Not enough Dry Rock was laid. Should be 150mm (6inches) I asked for more. Demand for more money part of was requested. I paid by cheque. End of week three Saturday 31/10/2020 after three days of no work eight men turned to complete the entire works. Heavy rain occasionally stopped work and panic was setting in. They ran out of materials. Jack was gone two hours there and back. Mid afternoon before even completion Jack handed me an envelope which was a demand for the final payment. I noticed the date was the 30/10/2020. Out of trust and good faith I wrote out a cheque and gave it to him for his Boss. I never checked up on their work. why, would I. They do this for a living right? When I saw them packing up to leave I went outside to check that my Garage doors opened. Guess what? they didn't and the pavers prevented it from opening. Jack frantically got the compactor out and also a rubber mallet pounding the pavers. One half opened but not the other half fully. So I now cannot use the Garage. Losing light at the end of day. I told him to leave thinking I could possibly sort it but, I've not had any success. The next day Sunday I checked the Driveway and found areas unfinished. Shame because it ruins the rest of the Driveway. I've asked them to return and remedy my complaint, and sent them pictures. But, after being paid a lot of money the Boss James Douglas won't even answer my emails which are courteous. This is causing a bad feeling with us about Lab Civils of Doncaster and speaks volumes about the people who run it. They don't seem to be nice people or care about their customers. More...

Hired to relay York slab paving on patio, assured experienced with this type of paving.Day 1 team ok, knew what they were doing.
Day 2 team useless, messed up stones and left a mess.
Day 1 returned and sorted mess out, finished relaying slabs and nice job of cementing in.

Day 2 team returned to clean slabs up, no brush no pressure washer.
I paid before job complete, silly, and am still waiting for cleaning to be completed.
The phrase "curates egg" comes to mind. Some parts of the job good, some below par.

You never know how these home improvement jobs will go. This was stress free from the initial consultation and quote, to work completion. The tradesmen were first class, hardly stopped at all. Would recommend to anyone.

Q&As

We pride ourselves on giving a fast and reliable service. due to only using our own team of professional staff , we ensure all our customers receive a first class service along with a reasureance that only the top rated products and materials are used.

Services

Block paving is such a popular alternative to the more traditional tarmac and concrete driveways. First, block ​paving​ ​driveways don't tend to be as costly as other surfacing methods. But its main attraction is the great personalisation possibilities it offers along with this the design options are almost limitless.

Today’s materials come in many colours, styles, sizes and finishes available to suit all tastes. We only use high-quality materials that have proven durability.

A resin bonded surface produces a durable, smooth surface with no loose stones that’s perfect for many domestic and commercial applications like driveways, patios, steps, paths and walkways, car parks.

All our resin bound products also benefit from UV protection against both colour fade and discolouration while water drains away quickly and easily via resin’s porous surface. That means no pooling and puddles.

Resin is one of the most cost-effective surface for a driveway because it’s extremely durable and very low maintenance - no need to replace or repair because of cracks, chips or permanent puddles.

Asphalt is one of the most effective ways to pave a driveway, path or any large area used for vehicles. With the option of personalised edgings such as decorative stones, kerbs and other features. Pliable asphalt is designed not to crack in the heat of the sun or during cold weather. We guarantee a machine-laid, perfectly levelled finish every time.

From Roof repairs and tile replacements to a complete new roof. With a wide range of tiles and colour and vast experience nothing is too big or too small.
