s and l builders

A genuine time-served builder. I served my time as a bricklayer/plasterer. I have a reputation for closing projects within the timescale; on budget, and to the highest standard. My prices are fair and true. I'm not in the business of providing time-wasters with high quality work for a zero price.

About s and l builders

I served my time as a bricklayer. I then went into sub-contract site housing builds where i worked as the lead bricklayer in a two and one gang, and built house shells for many companies. Twelve years ago, i began working for myself building extensions almost exclusively.I've also done a lot of landscaping. Extension builds require versatile builders who are multi-skilled, so its not uncommon to find clients requiring their builder to build garden walls, steps, patios,decking areas, fences etc..things more typical of a builder, rather than a landscaper who may hire a builder or build these things himself.


Advanced craft city and guilds in bricklaying.
30 continuous years experience in house building and extensions to houses.
Good communication, good organisation (with the ability to use labour effectively).
I only use or recommend the use of tried and tested tradesmen( such as corgi and gas safe plumbers and 17th edition electricians). Likewise i won't suffer fools in the other trades.Using the wrong tradesmen is liable to get the best of tradesmen into trouble.
I have repeated contracts from a property developer, a doctor, a property management couple,a wholesale gardening outlet, and other builders. These people by the very nature of their businesses require their work done with the minimal disruption. They require high standards in all aspects of their projects with particular care to customer relations.
I also do a high amount of landscaping. This came about from repeated requests from extension build clients requiring such jobs as patio's, garden walls, steps, fencing, shed bases, decking, levelling off of gardens etc..that in the end i found i could achieve just as good a result as a landscape gardener employing a builder to do these jobs, often more competitively priced, and usually with improved masonry.
