An in depth look at what our clients have to say:

Mr & Mrs Vetello – Patcham
This was our first experience having major renovations to our home and after so many tales of woe from other people about having similar works made, we were initially dubious about the whole undertaking. After meeting several other Builders Steve immediately stood out from the others.

Steve was hands on the tools and worked along side his tradesman and operated his own machines to ensure that the best quality and highest of standards were obtained. We loved the fact that there was only one builder and one person to deal with (no supervisors) Lesley, Steves wife took care of all the paperwork side of things and was very thorough and prompt. We strongly recommend Steve & Lesley from A1 Builders to anyone who is thinking of building, they have proven to be honest and caring and are a truly dedicated couple whom takes much pride in their work.


Joe & Rosa Vartuli – Saltdean

Dear Steve & Lesley,

Just a short note to thank you so much for your part in building our Granny Flat. We have nothing but admiration for you and your extremely competent team of workers you were all magnificent. Your professionalism in completing the project was very obvious right from the start. We remember what you said Lesley when we were signing the building contracts that Steve is not like any other builder that walks on the job site with a business shirt and tie but still wears a nail bag and is totally hands on.

We were VERY impressed with Steve he is a very hard worker with a passion to get the job right the first time nothing was too much trouble. Lesley your skill in organising and arranging material and trades is fantastic. Thank you for all your work if I and my family or friends were contemplating building again A1 Builders would certainly be my first recommendation or 1st choice as your motto says “Quality you deserve. Value you can trust. is true to the word. Once again thank you so much.
