The team

Dean and James started Orbital Roofing & Building Specialists in 2001 and have gone on to grow the business offering high quality service and satisfaction. The Directors work with the customers from start to finish with quoting, estimating through to carrying out the work themselves with the rest of the team.

Some members of the team have been with us for over 15 years and are an integral part of the business. We have also offered an apprenticeship scheme in the past which has helped train and develop young people moving forward and learning a valuable trade.
