Having been quoted by several different companies to build an extension we came across S&A Builders and were immediately struck by the professional look of their website.
After our first meeting with Steve we had pretty much decided that S&A were the company we wanted to use providing they came in with a competitive quote - which they did!
From day one of the work we were able to sit back and watch Anthony and his team just get on with the job with a minimum of fuss but the maximum amount of professionalism.
At every step of the build Anthony and Steve kept us fully informed down to the most minute detail and while their work is quick, they still manage to maintain the highest standards of finish.
Being on site every day Anthony was able to continually offer us advice as to how to get the best possible finished product - which we believe we now have. Perhaps the biggest compliment we can pay them is that for much of the project it didn't actually feel like a building site. Each day every tool and piece of machinery was stored away and the site was meticulously cleaned before they left.
We would - and have - recommended S&A to anyone looking to undertake a building project.

We employed Steve/S&A Builders to complete the loft conversion on our bungalow. Having had plenty of issues with architects, we finally got planning permission, and Steve came on board and immediately took control of the project. From the outset his approach was very professional and helpful. When problems arose he was able to offer creative and imaginative solutions, to the extent that our loft space is now much more useable that it would've been had we stuck to the original plans. Throughout the project his communication was excellent and the quality of the work is top notch.
Would I recommend Steve and S&A Builders? Well, we plan to ask them back to convert the outbuildings in our garden!

S&A Building Contractors built a single storey extension for us in the Summer of 2010. Steven's advice in the design and planning stages was invaluable and much appreciated.The construction was carried out efficiently and to a high standard of workmanship.Their attitude to the project at all times was professional, but friendly.They clearly take pride in their work and were sympathetic to our needs as clients.
We would have no reservations in recommending S&A Builders to anyone who requires high quality construction work done. One word of warning though! Don't give Anthony your best mugs!

I would just like to thank Steve and his team for an excellent job. Our extension was built in good time with little or no mess during the project. The overall finish was top class. And we were kept informed of what was going to happen next at every stage of the build.
A Job Well done boys
Jason & Sarah Preece. - Dunvant, Swansea |
We are both delighted with our double extension and the standard of work undertaken in its building.
We initially had Steve and the boys to build our conservatory base in 2003 and owing to the high standard of work asked them to return.
We would highly recommend Steve and his team to any potential customers. Two and a half years on from the construction of our extension and the quality is still there to be seen. Numerous people passing our house have in fact stopped to inquire as to who undertook our building work. We have been happy to pass on the recommendation each time.

We are very pleased to have chosen your excellent company to build our conservatory, and we would highly recommend you.
It is something that enhances our home and let us say thanks for the top advice at the design and planning stage.The work is of a very high build quality and your tradesmen are very skilful and a dedicated team.
The initial groundwork was carried out in a clean, careful and tidy manner, the timing of the stages being precise and well thought out, I must say, the work was well planned and managed. The brickwork is of a high standard with aesthetically pleasing lines and attention to detail, carried out with pride and great satisfaction. It all leaves us feeling very happy!
The site was left clean and tidy at all stages with safety always in mind.
The Upvc specialist carpenters fitted the entire framework and roof in two days and it looks outstanding. Awesome.
We`d recommend anyone thinking about choice of builders to seriously consider this dedicated team of specialists.

After spending ages trying to get a builder even to the property to give us a quote - my husband Richard found S&A Builder Brothers through this excellent website. From the outset the experience with S&A Builder Brothers was a pleasure, Steve was very professional and helpful - guiding us through what could have been a complicated process.
We had the entire exterior of our propery renovated 2010/2011 - including render, roof, flat roof, windows and doors. All the work was completed to an excellent standard, and Steve and his brother Anthony were always on hand to answer any questions and make helpful suggestions when decisions needed to be made.
Although most of the day-to-day buliding work was conducted by Anthony, Steve and John - any other staff that also came onto site for the occasional day always acted with the utmost professionalism.
We got to know the team very well, and were really impressed with how they handled the project - the care and attention to detail that was taken with our property. We felt like they were part of the family - and we were comforted by the fact they were completely professional and trustworthy. You don't have to worry with this team - your property is in good hands! The worksite was always kept very clean and tidy, with everything being put away at the end of the day - Health and Safety was taken into consideration at every stage.
We would have no issue recommending Steve and his team for any job - and my husband and I will definitely be calling them with all our future building needs.

It isn’t often I feel obliged to write and commend a company for how well they have transacted their business with me, but this is indeed one of those occasions. I feel it’s important to record our families thanks to both Steve and Anthony of ‘S+A’ for their superb commitment to our house extension work, completed recently.
There is always a risk in choosing a company needing to perform major ‘building surgery’ on your home. My wife and I were particularly conscious of this, having chosen badly previously. But from the first time Steve came to view my job, I warmed to his personality, we established a rapport and I quickly developed a real confidence in his advice.
I was always aware my extension he was there to quote on, was an ‘awkward, difficult job.’ Three previous builders had already quoted for it and all had made similar observations. Steve, while aware of those difficulties was able to ‘visualise the extension’ based on the plans and my description of how I hoped it would look. It says a lot for S+A that they were prepared to work through those problems while the other builders turned it down.
When I then met Anthony, Steve’s brother, I was impressed with his friendly manner, skills and committed attitude to the job. Anthony was the one who did most of the day to day construction work and the best way to describe his approach to my home, was to say he couldn’t have put more thought, patience and effort into it, if he’d been working on his own home. His attention to detail was a major contributory factor to the success of the job. The end result of his efforts have delighted my wife and I, it has created a more modern house, provided more living space and significantly increased its market value at the same time. Anthony’s dedication has transformed our family house into a home we’re justifiably proud of.
S+A worked here for several months and we got to know the various individuals of this essentially family business really well. It’s true to say they are both genuine and trustworthy, this is also true of their excellent support team, like Jonathan. Although each of the boys working here genuinely became like family friends, all adopting a professional, but ‘easy going’ attitude, all contributing to the creation of a pleasant working atmosphere, it was a real pleasure to have them in our home. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to my family and friends should they require work to be undertaken.
Thank you Steve + Anthony for what you have achieved on our behalf at our home. You proved yourselves to be an excellent choice of builders. Linda and I would like to wish you all the best of luck for the future.
With much thanks and kind regards

It’s not often I feel it necessary to write something positive about a company when they have done some work for me. Usually I only feel like writing if I want to complain about them. But in Steve and Anthony’s case, because of how they dealt with my garden tree problem, it really is deserved and I’m only too glad to make an exception.
I was looking to build a conservatory or an extension on my property and had a couple of double glazing companies around to give me a quote for the job. The main obstacle to starting the work though, was some big trees on my property that needed to be removed first.
A mate said to try S and A Builders. At first I thought it was strange to ask builders to remove trees, but when they called to the house, I immediately got on with both Steve and Anthony and they gave me confidence they could do the job, and at a decent price too.
I was surprised at how professional they were in setting out to do the work. My immediate neighbours were really pleased too, as Steve spoke with them to make sure they were informed and told them how the work would proceed. This relieved their concerns about how the felling would cause damage to their houses or to ours.
To be honest, I never realised how much thought needs to go into something like this. They impressed me making sure I knew what was happening next and made sure to follow all the health and safety rules as well. So everything was handled safely. I also liked the fact the felled trees were disposed of in the right way and not just dumped. It was a really professional service by S and A and seeing how we can now build our extension on our garden was a really good feeling indeed.
This has lead on to me offering S and A the chance to quote on the main extension work that is expected to start early next year. If S&A do it, it would be like having old friends doing the work.
Thank you Steve and Anthony, we were very happy with your great service.

I would like to write some comments about the service provided for me recently by Steve and Anthony (S&A Builders).
My house is one of the oldest in the village where I live, and over the years, with no real work having been done on it, to put it mildly, it started to look ‘a bit tired.’ My godson, who’d also had work done on his house, highly recommended S&A, saying lots of good things about them and so, after discussing it all with Steve, I thought I’d give them a small job on the house, to see how it went?
I have to say, I was delighted with how the boys were around the place and the quality of the work they offered. They were friendly and always turned up if they’d arranged to call, always cleaning up after themselves at the end of their working day.
Gradually, when having developed real confidence in their professional service, I asked them to do more work, until they’d rehabilitated my old house back into something that restored my, and my family’s pride in the old place again.
After a few months work, my outwardly ramshackled house, was transformed into a smart, elegant home again. Something she hadn’t been for a good number of years. This renewal of my old home, has, as you’ll appreciate, increased it’s value significantly too. Plus I’m pleased to say, created a lot of very positive comments locally.
Over the weeks before the main work started, Steve was very obliging with his time, to ensure we discussed exactly what it was I had in mind for the house. These talks continued as the work went along. Not being a builder, I didn’t know what could be done, Anthony also made some interesting and helpful suggestions about those improvements too. It’s true to say, the end result looks lovely.
So thank you Steve, Anthony and the boys, for everything you’ve done for me. And just like my godson, I’d also have no hesitation in recommending S+A myself, to other people just like me.

It's taken me a while to get around to it but I thought I'd write to let you know how pleased Marion and I are with the work that you carried out at our cottage in Ynyswen in May 2013. We were really pleased with the standard of finish of the work and the new bedroom really makes a difference when we have guests, your idea about having a velux was inspired so thanks for that. The multi fuel burner in the sitting room is great and it really makes a huge difference to the room along with the new window that you installed for us.
are both so pleased with the work that we will certainly be contacting you this year to completely redo our kitchen(some thick walls will have to come down!), and our bathroom as well as some work to be done in our spare room. Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year and we'll be in touch very soon to arrange a meeting regards the stage of work to be done.
