Rose bushes hacked back to root - will they recover?

10 years ago

Hi all, I hope someone here can help.
We had builders in today and they have hacked back two rose bushes down to their root stock to make room for their materials. These bushes are (were) well established, I would guess that they could be over 30 years old. They have been cut to about 4 inches above ground.
They were such beautiful roses, and am so cross that this has happened. I am praying for a miracle that they might come back - what do you think are the chances they may recover?
