  • New Kitchen fitting with repairs and renovations to house.

    10Verified Review

    I would not hesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone looking for a reliable, skilled, thoughtful and professional building service. From start to finish of this 3 month project, they have been friendly, kind, helpful and hard working. David's knowledge of all aspects of building work is excellent, including his attention to detail. The work they have done and the high standard and care they have delivered, has transformed our house inside and out.

  • Kitchen diner extension

    10Verified Review

    David and his team did a fantastic job on our kitchen diner extension. His team had to knock down 2 walls, put steels in, rebuild the timber kitchen floor, install a new kitchen, downstairs toilet, plaster and board all walls, patio, extension roof and skylight to a very high standard. The detail in the carpentry and plastering exceptional and very pleased with the final result. David and his team were polite and professional, so clean and had a great standard of work. It was a pleasure to have them around the premises and I would highly recommend this company.

  • Full upstairs renovation of period house

    10Verified Review

    David and his team were outstanding and we highly recommend them! From the initial meeting to discuss our ideas to the final day of snagging, David was professional, polite and incredibly patient with our near constant questions and queries. He was always very easy to get hold of during the renovation and remained transparent about costings and time frames throughout the process. His work was thorough and things were left tidy at the end of each day.

Company info

We are a local builder with an established record in providing affordable and quality refurbishments, conversions and extensions to all types of existing buildings from footings to finished landscaping.

Based in Crowborough we undertake work primarily throughout the South East which includes Kent and Sussex. We frequently work in Crowborough, Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield and Heathfield.

David Martin himself started his carpentry and building career in 1986. He spent 10 years with a local building company, 3 of those years as a carpenter's apprentice and then 7 more as a fully qualified carpenter and joiner. During these years he developed his skills in many areas of the building trade.

We have undertaken many different types of jobs which include:

·       extensions

·       loft conversions

·       balconies

·       terraces

·       refurbishments

·       kitchens

·       new build work

·       roofing

·       bathrooms

·       decoration

·       all types of insurance work

Now we are a well-established traditional firm that relies on our quality of workmanship.

Our pricing covers all aspects of the contract and will also aim to pre-empt any extra work. We are proud that our estimates are as accurate as possible and normally equate to the finished cost, so you have no surprises or hidden costs at the end of the project. We do ask for staged payments starting the day work on your project begins.
