Over 31 Years Experience

My first and only job since leaving school has been working in a third generation family roofing business for the past thirty one years.

I have had the experience of working on an array of projects ranging from a small roof repair to vast, technical, high profile properties. Interesting jobs have involved; working on historic properties such as churches and stately homes and large, private residential homes of high value.

Small building and maintenance projects are welcome. The majority of our work has led to specialising in, high performance flat roofing, fibre glass roofing, lead work, slate and tile pitch roofs, chimney and parapet refurbishments.

“Our roof had been damaged by heavy winds in excess of 60mph so Mr. Brophy suggested improvements and was commissioned to make the repairs. He did an excellent job and there were no problems with recent bad weather when 93mph winds were recorded locally. For peace of mind and assurance, contact J.J. Brophy.”

“Justin was the contractor who roofed our new house in 2012. It was important in a cliff top location to have a high specification roof built to a high standard and I am pleased to say that the job was carried out to a first class standard. We have already survived very high winds these last two years with no problems whatsoever. (Credit also to the main contractor, Mark Tap who employed Justin)”

“Justin has in the past completed two separate roofing jobs on the Lupton Estate, he has also rebuilt a listed pillar and provided new railings at the entrance to Lupton. Recently he redecorated the exterior of the farmhouse and also replaced the facia, guttering and down pipes. We have found Justin to be honest, hardworking and most importantly he takes pride in his work, so the work is to a high standard.”

“I am 93 and it’s difficult to trust people to do work for you at my age. JJ Brophy was recommended to me by MD Tapp Builders and Mr. Brophy did the job neat and tidy and everything was clean from start to finish.”
