What past clients have to say,
"I have worked together with Lee of HarperBD on historic building projects since I met him in 2011, ranging from an Abbey roof structure to a working church bellframe and each with exacting requirements
I have always been most impressed by Lee's knowledge of the causes of timber decay, which are sometimes obscure and with this knowledge his ability to identify probable consequences whereas experience and the variety of equipment he carries accurately locate problem areas in an efficient and completely non invasive way.
The data provided in descriptive and graphic form is always very clear and precise, enabling repairs to be structurally quantifiable – and as we saw on occasion actually unnecessary.
I will not hesitate to return to Lee for future investigations."
