Had to purchase over 60 joists for a comunity build project, creating rooms with spans of 10 metres. John B Smith's joists were light weight (could be moved by 2 people) and strong. Also the company was very reasonably priced, delivered when they said they would and gave excellent support and advice in the installation and fitting of their joists. Would definitely use them again.
Fantastic service - We are re-building a bungalow into a large house and employed an architect and a structural engineer who both made mistakes with the design of the roof. Our contractor went to Andrew Stainsby at JB Smith who re-designed it and fixed it, despite it being a highly complex roof which he had never seen. The service is first class and I cannot recommend them enough.
I have recently undertaken an extension to my club in Redcar, and due to the complexities of building a traditional roof system, ie a main ridge beam from 9" x 3" timber over 40ft long, and a tapered building area, I decided to look into having trusses tailor made. I contacted JB Smith, who gave me a very competitive quote, and although the 19 trusses all had differing angles at the rear to combat the taper, I had them all delivered to site 8 days later,and all installed the day after. I calculate that I have saved over two weeks labour and timber savings too in using Smiths for my trusses . The job is on the Citizens Club in Redcar should anybody want to see it and I would wholeheartedly recommend JB Smith for their pricing, efficiency and speed in getting the trusses to site.
