Peter and his team have now completed a complex extension to our property which took some six months. There were a couple of necessary breaks in the proceedings, over the Christmas season and whilst awaiting delivery of bespoke items, but at all other times there were never less than two men on site, who invariably worked diligently and politely.
There were many times when a change of plan was requested or required, but Peter always took them in his stride, and nothing was ever too much trouble.
In summary, they are professional, very friendly and competitively priced, and we would recommend them to anybody - as we already have.

I am more than happy to recommend the services of Peter Baldwin, whom i have employed on several occasions in connection with building work at my house in Lewes
I have always found him a skilful, versatile and tidy workman, whose sticks to his estimate and completes work on time.
On one occasion the planned works at my house had to be changed in mid-campaign, on account of discoveries of structural problems and the involvement of the listed buildings inspector. Peter and his subcontractors responded calmly and efficiently to the change of plan and produced a better solution that had first been envisaged.
I would be happy, by arrangement, to show any potential customers the work which Peter carried out at my house.

Over the past year, pete baldwin and his team have been working on the full conversion of my two cottages in to a single property. This has involved putting in a joist and step at the ‘break through’ wall to allow the two properties to be joined together, full roof insulation, dormer reconstruction, renewal of rotten floor boards, plastering, fitting five new windows, restoring and decorating old panelling, and plumbing- fitting of a new boiler and central heating and a new bathroom. Pete manages an excellent team of workmen. They work well together as a team, are flexible to personalised requirements, and in my case have produced sympathetic, good quality work in keeping with the early 1800’s date of the house. They are reliable and are flexible.
I am happy to very strongly recommend them and indeed i used them because they were recommended to me.

Pete built us a beautiful new kitchen, knocking down two walls, replacing the floor and opening up a new window. They were excellent, trustworthy and always reliable, quickly finding practical solutions to any problems that arose.
Pete provided all the building, plumbing, electrical and carpentry work and his skilled team were a pleasure to have in our home. They work to a very high standard with excellent attention to detail and are thoroughly recommended.

Peter and his team are complete heroes. They created a beautiful space in my cottage kitchen/diner, which included removal of a load-bearing wall and fitting velux window. The quality of work is excellent and came in on budget. The work was completed earlier than predicted as they all worked so hard to finish. In particular, I would like to mention that Peter is really good with his communications: he always responded to my queries quickly, and considered all changes and options thoughtfully, flexibly and professionally. Absolute stars!!
Once we received planning permission to build a new dwelling we searched for a builder to take on the work. Peter and Jake Baldwin were recommended to us and so pleased that they were.
They undertook all brick and block work, foundations, dot and dab, plastering etc. All work was carried out to a very high standard. They were also invaluable in advising us on other aspects of the build.
They were a pleasure to have around and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Peter Baldwin, a family builder built a kitchen extension to our home in 2018. He was introduced by a close friend. Having met Peter and had the opportunity to view his work, my wife and I were very comfortable to go ahead with the work.
We found the team to be professional, hardworking and reliable. They are very friendly and approachable. Our new kitchen has transformed the house and our home life.
In 2019 we went on to have our back garden landscaped and a patio built. They also replaced our ageing driveway with lovely block paving which included the frontage and path to the front door. We are very pleased with the high standard of the work, and have had no hesitation recommending him to family and friends.

We employed Peter Baldwin as he was a local builder and was recommended to us. The work that we needed doing was quite complex and with his help and experience it was finished too perfection. The work consisted of knocking down some existing buildings and replacing with a large garage which included extending the kitchen, excavating and laying a beautiful driveway, dropped kerb and porch.
Peter and his team which consisted mainly of his family, were all highly skilled and efficient. We came across a problem with planning but once again Peter came to our rescue and put us in touch with Monica Ryan, an architect from Eastbourne who sorted out the problem and everything went like clockwork. The whole team were punctual, courteous and tidy. The original estimate was adhered too in spite of carrying out other little jobs.
We recommend Peter and his team whole heartily and would gladly allow prospective customers to view their work. A very satisfied customer.
I have used Peter Baldwin and his firm Baldwin builders, on a regular basis for building work at our house for over 8 years. In that time mr Baldwin and his team have built a 95 square metre extension to our house. 2 floors which wrapped around the existing house.
Mr Baldwin was excellent at listening to what our requirements were, advising on what he thought were alternative options and suggested ways of overcoming problems. His team of workers compliment him with a depth and breadth of knowledge, in regards to accomplishing building work. When he brings other trades onto the site, you can be sure that they are of a high quality as Mr Baldwin does not suffer fools gladly or employ shoddy tradesmen. Mr Baldwin and his team were always on time in the mornings and ensure a full days work was achieved.
After building the extension to out house, when we wanted a large patio area built, then a drive way brick paved, we went to mr Baldwin both times. We knew the quality of the work would be excellent and that we could feel safe in that assumption.
Earlier on in this year Mr Baldwin and his team rebuilt all the lintels in the house ready for double glazing, replaced all the soffits and ensured all the tiles and felting were of quality to stand another 50 years.
He also recommended the local double glazing company, who were excellent with there installation and price.
Pete and his team of trades people have just completed our converted kitchen diner into one large open space. The process was smooth from start to finish, and we’re always on time at the site. Pete kept us updated throughout the process making sure everything ran as smooth as possible. We would recommend him to anyone starting a project.
Peter Baldwin converted a cupboard in the hall of this listed building into a ground floor cloakroom. The work was carried out with great care to protect the historic structure and finished to a high standard. Now it looks as though it has always been there!
Peter’s team were considerate and helpful and minimised the disruption as we were living in the house at the time. They coped with the changes that we made as they went along and carefully incorporated the stained glass which we found on e-bay!

Finding someone you trust to remodel your house is always a worry. We were fortunate to have a couple of recommendations for Baldwin Builders, and invited Pete to quote. We are so glad we did, it felt right from the first meeting and the job was theirs.
Pete and Son, Jake, make an excellent team, backed up by highly skilled tradespersons in their respective areas. All were willing to offer advice where necessary, listen and more importantly do a job to an excellent standard.
5 months later, we moved into a fantastic new(!) property, which is a joy to live in. The snag list was minor, almost non-existent across the board. We wouldn’t hesitate to have Pete and his team back for any future work, or recommend to others.
