I live in Lewes and I'm looking for a good, reliable builder for a spot of joinery and brickwork. Lewes builders all seem incredibly expensive, that's when they can bothered to quote at all, and on the flaky end of fancy. I suspect I need to look further afield - Seaford or Ringmer perhaps? Any suggestions?

Yeah they have more demand than supply, it's frustrating but I guess there's no point in them spending times talking to you if they can't do the work anyway.
I used Luke Beasley (who uses a local chippy, electrician etc), best way to contact is through Facebook.

Lewes is an expensive town to live in therefore the people who live here that provide services will charge accordingly. You saying they’re expensive, well, how much do you earn ? Obviously enough to afford to live here

I’d look further afield - Saltdean, Peacehaven, Newhaven - I know a great builder but he picks & chooses his work and is always booked. Ultimately if you live in a £1 million + house you should expect people to take the piss

I love the assumptions that followed my post: that I'm a born-yesterday DFL on a banker's salary living in a million pound house. None of the above. If I didn't know Lewes builders were taking the piss I wouldn't be looking elsewhere. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions, I'll give Luke a try

When you say ‘proper builder ‘ I assume you want a divorced, philandering, Transit driving, roll up smoking, cash up front, jack the lad. I’m afraid there’s none of them left. They’re all iPad carrying hipsters now ala H*W
