and the praise just keeps a coming

We don’t solicit this kind of praise, but it still arrives daily. In part by shear volume we’re going to receive glowing testimonials but unashamedly we do such a good job each time and every time. So if you want to employ a company that prides itself on delivering the highest levels of customer service, quality of installation and after sales service then you know where to come. Dear #comptonspares, Just to say thank you for the work to remove/replace my current garage roof and the internal sand/cement fillet which has been done. I am very satisfied with the quality

Compton Spar Apex Garage Roof Replacement

Compton Spar Apex Garage Roof Replacement This high-spec Compton Building was in fine shape apart from the roofing which had deteriorated rapidly; in part due to the colour lifting. The fascias each end are made from PVC and the main door plastisol coated. The remainder of the structure is a combination of red oxide primed or galvanised steel. It wasn’t necessary for the entire structure to be emptied as access is only required for a step ladder. Lights can remain in situ. The structure itself it at relatively low height and the work carried out from just one side. The

Our offer won hands down….

Our offer won hands down….Earlier this year we found ourselves bidding against a local firm for this block of nine garages in #poole #dorset. Now you would think we would be on the back foot with the distances involved but you would be wrong. Our offer won hands down so a few weeks later we brought with us twenty-eight rigid full-length sheets in Juniper Green and plastisol steel fascias in white. The client was particular in their requirements adding that they wanted the gap under the fascias bridged so that no creepy crawlies could enter (Foam filler front and rear

So when it comes to garage extensions, replacement garage roof and repairs, Better Buy #comptonspares                     Compton Buildings manufactured concrete garages, shed and workshops for over 50yrs. Up until the 1980s tax breaks were offered for self-build and garage build instructions provided. In the latter years, self-employed garage erectors would construct on behalf of Compton Garages. #comptonspares have kept the memory alive, archiving many past documents and reproducing components to the original designs. We’re now the sole stockist for roofing clips, guttering kits, concrete garage panels including front pillars and PVC

Yes, the garage door is shabby looking

Yes, the garage door is shabby looking Yes, the garage door is shabby locking, but it’s the high position of the door lock which caused us concern. With this we knew we were looking a canopy cone and cable door and repair would only be a short-term fix. We suggested replacement with a retractable door; No cables are used in the lifting operation, instead spring assisted side mounted lifting arms assist the opening of the garage door. The re-roof was straightforward as we work on this garage design regularly. The roof and fascias are in dark ‘Juniper’ green which in

most days we provide significant improvements to garages and, on the remainder, we deliver the dramatic!

Most days we provide significant improvements to garages and, on the remainder, we deliver the dramatic! On most days we provide significant improvements to garages and, on the remainder, we deliver the dramatic! Somewhere underneath all this ivy there lurked a traditional block garage. Once the client had removed enough overgrowth a survey was arranged. In addition to the roof we measured up for a replacement window and main doors. The doors were very traditional (tiny) so steel side-hung doors were recommended. We offered to clear the remainder of the ivy upon our return.         We must

Compton Balmoral Double Garage Extra-High Garage Re-Roof

Compton Balmoral Double Garage Extra-High Garage Re-Roof It’s surprising what people hold onto such as these photos of a Compton Building being erected back in 1999 and no it wasn’t being installed by the ‘vertically challenged’, this garage is an extra-height version. Even cedarwood has a finite lifespan and Mr. Cox of Heanor, Derbyshire decided to add a set of fresh new PVC fascias. It’s worthwhile noting that ComptonSpares.com are the only producer of replacement garage fascias for the Compton Building. Don’t settle for a cheap over cladding. This roof was specified in Goosewing (light-grey) a popular choice and with

This was the Compton Buildings of the nineteen nineties and early noughties not the hellish mess that Marshalls PLC brought to Southam.

I have fond memories of my visits to Compton Buildings, Fenny Compton. A warm welcome was guaranteed and as you were led across the open plan office you felt valued by all that greeted you. This was the Compton Buildings of the nineteen nineties and early noughties not the hellish mess that Marshalls PLC brought to Southam. The factory was peculiarly situated in a picturesque rural setting with a small village consisting of very narrow boards and medieval buildings close by. Originally address as Fenny Compton, Leamington Spa, later become Fenny Compton, Southam the factory had excellent road links with

Lidget Garage Re-Roof

Lidget Garage Re-Roof This Lidget building was a mere youngster at 11 years old but already Ms. Hollis of Derby had lost confidence in this building. Remarkably, she is amongst the minority that still parks their car in garage. A site survey wasn’t going to be necessary since original sales documents were produced and besides nobody wants a pushy salesman on their doorstep? Nick and Jarod stripped the fibre-cement roofing and the tatty fascias, the roofing supports were cleaned down and the entire building purged of creepy crawlies! They were joined by Andy who swiftly secured the new roof and
