The Contract was awarded by Suffolk County Council.

The George White Middle School, Norwich

The natural slate roofs  discharged into failing lead valleys. NPS Property Consultants decided to replace the lead with Polyroof 185 Glass Fibre System providing a solution with a life expectancy of at least 25 years.

Earlham Park - Dovecote

The cedar shingle roof tiles to the Dovecote standing in Earlham Park needed replacing after almost 50 years. In order to preserve the character of this famous landmark adjoining the UEA site; Norwich City Council specified new split cedar shingles imported from Canada.

These tiles are guaranteed for 40 years against wood rotting fungi and insect attack, they also receive a fire retardant treatment providing lifetime protection. This natural lightweight product demands the highest standards of workmanship and the expertise of Faber Roofing's tradesmen was paramount in producing an extremely aesthetic result.

Norton Thurlton & Thorpe Village Hall

This had a hexagonal pyramid felt roof, which for sometime, local youths had enjoyed scaling the heights. Inevitably, the time came for the roof to be renewed and the Committee Members invited Faber Roofing to propose a system that would be aesthetically pleasing, outlive felt and perhaps deter the adventurous youth.

The recommendation was to use Decra lightweight metal tiles which met all of the criteria:- a life expectancy in excess of 40 years, a pleasing terracotta stone granular finish to enhance the appearance and subdue youthful enthusiasm. Grant monies and fund raising events lead to the successful completion of the contract in 2003.

Beccles and District Museum

The Company decided some years ago to form its own "in-house" scaffold division servicing only its own Contracts. Considerable investment in both plant and people continues in order to maintain the established high standards.

Northfield House Mundesley

This property sits alongside the bowling green and was formally a rest home for employees of South East Gas and passed to the then Local Authority in 1951, who converted the property into twelve flats to provide accommodation for local people. In 1974 responsibility for the property passed to North Norfolk District Council, the new Local Authority.

The new millennium saw the need to re-roof and the contract was awarded to Faber Roofing. Black glazed pantiles by Pottlebergh were specified and have become a feature providing a dramatic contrast to the white chimneys and elevations as they sparkle in the sun, crowning this very striking property.
