NOT JUST BRICKS & MORTAR
considerations of a house extension.
Regardless of whether you are considering a modern kitchen extension or a more complex build with multiple storeys, any house extension requires careful planning and consideration. The complexity of a house extension should not be underestimated and must factor in everything from energy efficiency through to fire safety and structural integrity.
It’s therefore important you have an experienced construction team that not only understands the complicated legal rules, but one that also understands the practicalities of the build itself.
As a small family run business with over 45 years of active trade, AJ Hammond Builders have become the trusted building contractors in East Sussex. We’ve built home extensions in Bexhill, Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, Heathfield, Tunbridge Wells and beyond.
Our experience and customer feedback has demonstrated that keeping you up to date with the construction plan makes the build process a lot more straightforward for our customers – something that often gets undervalued.

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.
Great family business! Neil, Sam and Harry... all like a breath of fresh air. Nothing too much trouble and any problem no hassle.. We have had a double storey extension finished to perfection.. all other necessary trades organised with ease.. What a great team .. thank you AJ Hammond for your great work, compassion and expertise..
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
