Frequently Asked Questions

Firmus Group is a dedicated team of all trade professional contractors with specialisms in several areas.

Our friendly in-house team approaches every project with professionalism, skill and speed, all the while maintaining the friendly and customer driven experience that has become associated with our name.

Our team is guided by 3 main principles:

  • The use of high quality materials
  • Thorough and efficient job completion
  • Friendly and approachable service

We tackle every job with the personable mentality of a family run business, with no compromise on world class results.

One of the most time consuming and frankly irritating things about large scale projects is the need to hire a separate company for each element. Your painter won’t be able to do your plumbing, and you’ll need to hire someone else in for your joinery on top of that.

However, Firmus Group is a comprehensive one-stop-shop for every element of your project. From providing electrical services to roof maintenance, our singular in-house team will support you every step of the way. We even provide project management services so you can be sure that every aspect of your job is being taken care of in a timely manner.

Our team specialises in a vast range of services, including:

  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Painting
  • Joinery
  • Roofing
  • Cleaning
  • Building

We’re available to complete all manner of projects, whether they’re residential, industrial or commercial.

We have experience with every size and scope of project and will be happy to help you with every step towards realising your vision.

  • Full rewires

Joinery is one of our passions here at Firmus Group, and many of our craftsmen have their origins in carpentry and joiner work.

Joinery is essentially a skilled trade that involves making or joining wood to construct various structures, many of which are vital to building works. This could involve building foundations for houses, doors, windows and fitted furniture.

It’s crucial that you go to an experienced craftsman for your joinery needs, as a poor job could mean thousands of pounds in repair and replacements.

Just as a fantastic paint job can make a room look brand new, a shoddy job is very noticeable and can negatively affect the aesthetic of a space.

Painting can be time consuming to get right, but with years of experience under our belts you can be sure that our team has a tried and tested process that will get your job done quickly with minimal stress.

There are many more benefits to our painting service, including:

  • Experience - with our expertise, we know exactly how to approach every project, minimising the risk of mistakes
  • Efficiency - we’ll work to your time frame
  • Highly trained - we’re knowledgeable about painting techniques and colour mixing
  • Fully insured - as professional painters, we come fully insured and vetted
  • First class preparation - Light sanding, paint stripping and properly laying out dust sheets; we take care of it all for you from start to finish
  • Equipment - our team will bring only the best and most practical tools, eliminating the need for you to buy expensive equipment that you might only use once

Yes. Exterior painting might often be overlooked, but the outside of your building is the first thing your visitors or clients see, and so it’s always a good idea to make an impression with high quality paintwork.

A leak in your roof can be disastrous for your home or business, so in order to prevent an emergency you should always have your roof evaluated regularly by a professional.

Our team can evaluate potential problems before they happen and suggest fixes there and then. A little bit of effort goes a long way and could save you time, effort and a huge amount of money in the long run.

Yes. Please call us to discuss your requirements.

We do. Our team is multi-skilled, able to oversee even the most complex of projects. Just contact us and we can discuss a setup that works for you.

We always endeavour to complete your project or solve your issue in a timely manner. However, it’s always best to contact us and speak with us directly to gain an accurate understanding of the time frame.

Just give us a call! You’ll have an initial consultation with one of our friendly team members and we can go from there. We look forward to hearing from you!

Veronica Morrison 

After removing an old water tank cupboard to give me more bedroom space, I required a plasterer to repair my damaged walls.

Contacted Firmus on Friday late afternoon to see when they might get it done for me. Wasn't expecting anytime soon. But true to their word their plasterer was here at 9am Tuesday.

Made an amazing job, considering the holes and damage from removal. Never even left any mess as cleaned up afterwards also. Highly recommend and will have no hesitation in using them again. Many thanks.

Martin Tait,

David was kind enough to sponsor a kids football club I coach with, donating £500 cash to allow them entry into the winter indoor Futsal league so the lads can keep playing through the cold months. Very much appreciated considering I have never met David he was asked by someone we know mutually and had no hesitation in helping out. A very kind gesture, thanks from all the Glen Lions Football Club we are very grateful!

Michael Kane 

I have used Firmus several times over the last couple of years. The most recent job was to remove a leaky skylight and re-sark and slate.

I phoned in the morning and the roofer came out that afternoon and completed the job. Rab, the roofer did a top job!

Good value!
