Creating homes
out of the ordinary

Building quality on the south coast

Filby Builders are an independent, family-owned building company based in Brighton. We have been in business for over 40 years and operate in and around East and West Sussex, including Hove, Worthing, Peacehaven, Newhaven, Shoreham-by-Sea, Lewes and Burgess Hill.

Extraordinary homes

We specialise in construction work that is often out of the ordinary, working with local architects to design and build original and spectacular improvements to your home. As well as major structural work, including extensions, loft conversions and open plan expansions, we also undertake interior fit-outs including kitchens, bathrooms and staircases. If your project extends beyond the walls of your building, we can also provide landscaping including garden refurbishments and roof terraces.

Bespoke & tailored to your requirements

Our work is always bespoke and we work with architects, planners and local authorities to ensure that our work on your home is completed to the highest standards of compliance and regulations. No job is too big or too small and we always approach your requirements with imagination and practicality. We provide bespoke carpentry and tailored joinery so you can ensure the finished work is unique, distinctive and of the very best quality.

Filby Builders Testimonials
  • We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    “James and his team worked on our house renovation in 2017 and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They renovated and extended our three-bedroom house including doubling our downstairs floor space and adding two new bedrooms.

    We contracted James through a competitive tender process. We were impressed by the full and in-depth tender document they produced and by James himself when we interviewed him. The job was delivered exactly to tender with the only exceptions being changes we made ourselves during the project.

    Throughout the 11 months James and his team were on site they were always punctual, polite and helpful. James always came to us with solutions to any issues that arose and delivered everything to budget.

    Throughout the job James kept us up to date with schedules and always gave us plenty of notice of any decisions that were needed big or small. We are delighted with the quality of the finished work and are happy to show it off to any of James’ potential future clients.”

  • Their work ethic is exceptional.

    “Filby Builders Ltd completed a very complicated glass extension which involved removing the side of my very old house and retro fitting a modern glass extension to it.

    They did a fabulous job: their work ethic is exceptional, always on time, always polite and always tidy up at the end of each day. Their bills are also very reasonable and easy to understand.

    I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
