What is meant by building services?

We use building services as a generic term to summarise all of the services we offer our customers. As a “one-stop-shop” contractor we are capable of performing simple bricklaying work to more complex content restoration jobs thanks to our team of highly-trained staff, each with their own specialty. This further enables us to assign the right team member to the service you require, thus ensuring our high quality standards are delivered.

Why are building services important?

Due to the level of skill required, experience needed and in many respects the time required that construction work can take, building services play a more pivotal role in society now, more than ever. It’s these skills that are called upon in the event of insurance claims being made when damages have occurred.

What do building services do?

Heightvale’s building services are there to advise and implement on construction restoration needed, we assess each claim individually before we begin any install or restoration and always offer cost-effective solutions on the building services required where possible. However, our primary goal is to get things back to how they were. This could mean we undertake such works as; content restoration, roof repair, electrical rewiring, groundworks for drainage repairs or simply bricklaying work.
