Dreaming of your 

…Dream Home?

 dreaming of your 
...dream home?


without the stress.

More than ever, our home has become our sanctuary; our space to relax, our place to work. Our modern lifestyles need living spaces that are not only flexible and practical, but also creative and inspiring. 

Making any changes to the place we call home can be a scary thought – how long will it take? How much will it cost? What about the disruption? What if there’s weeks of bad weather? And that’s even before you’ve found a team of East Sussex builders that you can trust. Simply put, we get it.

At AJ Hammond Builders, we’ve transformed the living spaces of 100’s of people’s homes across East Sussex throughout our 45 years of active trade.

Our success story (and the success story of our customers) is the product of our commitment to transforming your living space without the stress. We work with you to make your dream home a reality and we’re here to help you through each step of the building process.

that respect your space.

Although we’ll be transforming your home and making some changes, it’s still your home that we’ll be working on.

AJ Hammond are a small family-run Bexhill-On-Sea building company, providing exceptional service. Our team of Master Craftsmen are recognised as being amongst the best East Sussex builders, not only for their first-class build skills but also for their ability to respect your space.

Whether we’re building a house extension with a stunning glass lantern roof or adding bifold doors to transform your kitchen, we treat your home like it’s our own. We’re discreet and courteous. The quality of our work is achieved through the integrity, professionalism and honesty of our workforce.

Our team of Bexhill builders are highly experienced in their field such that we can complete your building project to the highest specification. We can also source a team of other recommended and skilled tradesmen – for example a plumber for a kitchen extension or an electrician for a loft conversion. You can learn more about our services here.


we build on time.

It goes without saying that any home alteration can bring undue disruption if not properly managed. We’ve learnt over the years that one key aspect of our customer’s satisfaction is our time management

We like to be entirely transparent the whole way through the build process so that you can plan exactly when you’ll have to move the dining table, or unplug the TV. It’s not uncommon for things to change during a building process and you need a team of builders that can adapt.

At AJ Hammond Builders, we have a strong family ethos and because of that we very much understand and appreciate the importance of us completing our work on time. Since our formation in 1976 we’ve learnt what it takes to put our clients at ease and we’d love for you to take a look at some of our testimonials below.

AJ Hammond Builders reduce site waste

AJ Hammond builders recycle site waste



Over 25 million tonnes of construction waste is disposed to landfill with a massive 400 million tonnes of materials being used each year across the UK. That’s a huge environmental impact.

At AJ Hammond builders, we take our environmental procedures very seriously. Not only do we minimise costs by reducing, reusing and recycling, we also reduce our environmental footprint. 

For example, we always aim to reduce and reuse as much of our resources and waste as possible. We recycle a high proportion of our hardcore, where it gets crushed and then reused. We reduce our haulage by tipping excavated materials at the nearest licensed waste transfer station to the project that we are working on.

Furthermore, we use local suppliers to support local East Sussex builders merchants and only source accredited timber from approved suppliers.

A word from our customers.

Neil Hammond’s team is the best we have worked with by a mile. From start to finish everything was carried out to the highest standards. Every night the property was left clean and tidy. Friendly, efficient co-operation throughout the exercise made it a joy rather than one we couldn’t wait to be over!

Neil and his team are fantastic. Here are our highlights: Their eye for detail is wonderful. Suggestions are always great, they won’t let you make a bad decision. The quality of all the work is superb. All the main builders and subcontractors work as a cohesive and friendly team. We liked the fact that the decisions we had to make were broken down so we did not have to decide too many things at once. The site was always kept very tidy and they were very considerate of our neighbours. We have used A J Hammond Builders for two projects and have been delighted with the results both times.

AJ Hammond Builders are truly a family affair with Neil and his two sons at its core. We’ve known Neil for over 20 years and have used the company a number of times for building projects we’ve had. AJ Hammond Builders are reliable, competitive and their work is always of the highest quality.

We are delighted with the work carried out on our home by Neil and his skilled team. The project was undertaken with respectful, courteous professionalism and extreme attention to detail. Not the most competitive quote we received but this is reflected in the quality workmanship and high standard of finish needed to achieve the fantastic end result.

Neil and his team did a full refurbishment of an existing house for me, originally an 1850’s flint cart barn, in a conservation area in the South Downs National Park. They demonstrated great skill in traditional building techniques - rebuilding chimneys, re-roofing with a mix of recycled and salvaged tiles, laying a york stone terrace with brick steps and oak risers- melding this with modern upgrades including underfloor heating under new grey limestone floors, new oak-framed windows, a hand-built kitchen and 2 new bathrooms Neil in particular is a great communicator providing daily updates with photos sent from his iPad when problems discovered on site needed to be discussed, important when renovating an old building. They offered a complete service including sourcing and laying new turf for the lawn at the end and co-ordinating with a number of specialists including curtain/blind makers, bespoke fitted cupboards, bookcases and kitchen, sand-blasting of existing exposed joists and sling-braced trusses.

We’re absolutely delighted with our extension recently completed by Neil and has team. From start to finish our project was managed by Neil, who was always available for advice and there to oversee proceedings. A polite, friendly workforce, always leaving the site tidy at the end of the day. We’ve received lots of compliments from friends and neighbours since the work has been completed and wouldn’t hesitate to use AJ Hammond again and recommend to others.
- Dan & Susanne
Little Common, Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex
Neil and the team did an amazing job of a two storey extension on our family home. One of our biggest concerns was how disruptive the build would be having small children in the house but the whole team could not have been more respectful and we felt fully supported throughout the whole process. We have recommended them to many people locally who have been equally as delighted as we were with the end result.
- Siobhan
Little Common, Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex
Well managed and well executed projects. All handled in a timely and professional manner with a polite and friendly team. Additionally always provides clear quotes quickly after reviewing the jobs which stay true to the project. Not always at first sight the cheapest but always the best value due to the quality of workmanship. You always know where you stand. I would have no hesitation in recommending AJ Hammond Builders.
- David & Karen
Dallington, East Sussex
We had a 2nd storey extension and Neil was brilliant, sorted everything out to a high standard, including the other trade/contractors he brought in. It was a first-class job and I would highly recommend AJ Hammond Builders. We now have a stunning new bedroom to enjoy!
- Matt & Emma

Neil and his team worked relentlessly to complete our extension in time for Christmas. They were always polite, tidy and cleaned up every evening. We are looking forward to the next phase of the build in the summer. We would highly recommend them.
