With property prices in the South East rising by an average of £1,000 per month, now is the time to invest in an extension.

You couldn’t be in a better location to find a quality builder that is also reliable and trustworthy.
Finding a Sussex building company to undertake your project should not be hard. With a plethora of high quality construction firms based in the county, you will be spoilt for choice. And that is where you may find yourself in a dilemma. Which one should you choose? This guide will help you narrow the options and pinpoint recommended local tradesmen.
How to find a good builder
If you dream of living in a bigger home but don’t want to move, build an extension. There is a reason why the phrase ‘Don’t Move – Improve’ is so popular, it makes sense. As well as avoiding the upheaval and cost of relocating, an extension will give you all the space you need. You may want to adopt open-plan living, add a utility room or extend the kitchen. Whatever your plans, use these tips to help you find the right builder for your extension project:
Recommended companies in Brighton – Check out builders’ directories and trade schemes. Those with good customer feedback and an established track record should be your first port of call.
Best builders’ portfolios – It is no good contracting a builder to undertake a large project if their experience is limited to smaller jobs. Check the construction firm’s portfolio for similar projects. Do you like what you see? Was the customer feedback good?
Trustworthy tradesmen – A reliable builder will be proud of their track record. Look out for warning signs of an untrustworthy tradesman. Red flags may include online comments that suggest a builder may have struggled or failed to complete a project, or may be in financial difficulties. Are they a member of a trade body? Have you checked the company’s ratings on Google and Trust Pilot?
It’s good to talk – Never be afraid to chat to extension builders about your plans. You will know by talking to them how they treat their customers. Ask for a quote, and don’t be shy to pose questions. If you have got any concerns, request references. A trustworthy builder will be only too happy to provide them.
