Miss Joanne Howard, Maresfield


"Large commercial restoration on a busy street. Work carried out includes roof replacement, the insertion of large steel girders to wall, lead work, rendering, restoration, carpentry work and full decoration to masonry and facades. Alan and his workers were reliable, kept me well informed of progress and of any matters that arose and completed the work with minimum disruption to my business and at a competitive price. I have recommended Alan to a number of my clients who require various building services."

Mr Bransby, St Leonard’s on Sea

Wall removal, construct cloakroom, convert bathroom to study

Mrs Jannetta, Pevensey

"It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of recommendation in support of Alan Norton and his team at Equilibrium Building Solutions. They are certainly outstanding professionals whose excellent work merits recognition.
I met with numerous builders before deciding on Equilibrium Building Solutions. I can honestly say that from my first meeting with Alan I was impressed with his professionalism and integrity.
Alan and his team exceeded the level of customer service/satisfaction I was expecting. I want to thank you for your willingness to meet with me on many different occasions to either change or add to our home’s detail.
On a personal note, Alan and his team made our home building experience a pleasurable one. Thank you for a job well done!!!"

Laraine Jannetta

Ms Silvia Kirschner, St Leonard’s on Sea

Complete renovation of roof after a house fire

"After a house fire that caused extensive damage to our pitched roof, Alan and his team were employed to carry out the repair works. We are thoroughly impressed with Equilibrium Building Solutions; we would highly recommend their employment of any building works required. Alan and his team were extremely friendly and professional and we can’t thank them enough for their sensitivity also as we have a child with complex special needs and they were able to accommodate our needs as a family easily and efficiently."

Mrs Joanna Crittal, Uckfield

Complete new en-suite with tiles. Complete refurbishment of bedroom including knocking out fitted wardrobe, plastering, painting and decorating

"After using various builders over the last 14 months to completely refurbish our house and garden, we wish we had known Equilibrium at the beginning. They worked extremely hard and despite us making a large last minute alteration, nothing was too much trouble. They were extremely polite and courteous and kept us informed all the time and we would not hesitate to use them again. We are very satisfied with the work."

Mrs Elizabeth Apps, Bexhill on Sea

A new brick pillar and wall ties, also to fit lead flashing to Victorian greenhouse

"Very, very pleased with the work, especially as the greenhouse they worked on was Victorian and they were very sympathetic in their treatment of the structure. I will use them again ☺"

Mrs Lesley Dennison, St Leonards on Sea

External redecoration and associated masonry repairs

"The contractors took particularly good care and attention to detail when carrying out the preparation and remedial works to the underlying substrates. This is essential when dealing with sea front properties."

Arko Property Management, St Leonards on Sea

House redecoration

"Alan and his team did a complete redecoration of my house – living room, hall, landing, stairs and 3 bedrooms, removing wallpaper and woodchip throughout, then repainting and papering all the walls, doors and skirting. Additional electrical work was completed and within the timescale promised. Excellent workmanship. I will use their services for more work I have planned in the future."

Mr Peter Wiles, Hailsham

Significant work to roof and guttering as well as general household maintenance

"I am not someone who gives praise readily and having dealt with builders previously, the lack of commitment and professionalism filled me with dread when I had essential works that required doing. Having met Alan 6 months previously, I already had a good feeling due to his friendly nature but the works carried out were done in a clear and timely manner. The property is a rental house I own and I was contacted by Alan every time he was at the property with pictures of progress. Alan was clearly delighted with his own work on completion and I totally agree with him! Will undoubtedly use again."

Mr Steve Dyson, Horsham

Roof Tiles and chimney repair, re-pointing on large area of brickwork in Victorian style, paint stucco, repair and painting external windows

"Alan’s team was excellent in all respects – very friendly and easy to deal with, tidy – and did the work when and as agreed. What was especially striking was that Equilibrium used different men for different aspects of the work – each skilled in what they did so that it was very efficient. The re-pointing was the work of a true craftsman and had drawn much admiration from neighbours. No hesitation in having Equilibrium back to do more work. Can recommend them with no reservations. (Price was also fair and at the going rate)."

Ms Anne Mudge, St Leonards on Sea

Laid decking outside the back of the house

"Mr Norton arrived bang on time and he and his employees started the work immediately. They continued until the whole of the area was completed. It looks absolutely marvelous. Mr Norton had offered us the option of using a resin-based material to deck the outside, which came in a choice of colours. We chose grey. The whole area looks much better and even makes it look bigger. Mr Norton finished off with using grey slate chippings around the edges. Would certainly recommend Equilibrium Building Solutions to anyone and we will use them again. Thanks"

Mrs Larby, St Leonards on Sea

Exterior house painting front and back of a residential house

"I can recommend Alan, his brother Mark and their team to anyone. Courteous, prompt and helpful even during a minor crisis (entirely my fault) they were the kind of builders you’re led to believe simple doesn’t exist anymore. Competitively priced, these are the people to contact if your house is in need of repair/brightening up."

Mr Paul Moody, Hastings

New Kitchen, bathroom, tiling and flooring

"Top quality work, friendly, polite, professional and very tidy workmen, always kept us up to date with progress! Would use this company again and would have no hesitation in recommending this company ☺"

Mrs Wright, Newhaven
