Last year in 2013 S Longland Builders and their team built a detached garage to our 1901 Arts and Craft property in Kingsland, Shrewsbury. Their whole approach was to focus on the client/customer aspirations and to translate that into a realistic/achievable build.

We could not be more delighted with their efforts, professionalism and the finished result- steve offering some inspired design ideas with a curved concrete path, existing edging stones to form another walkway and second hand roofing tiles for the garage! The overall effect is awesome - the best compliment being when visitors are convinced that the garage was built at the same time as the house - this is exactly the outcome we were hoping to achieve. As a Yorkshireman, I was needless to say, as impressed by their work rate, quality of finish and the fact the whole project came in under budget! Thanks again gents.

We have worked with Sean and Steve Longland on several occasions when they have worked on our house, notably when we had a large extension. We have always found them very efficient and easy to work with. They keep one informed of any issues, they are well organised and get on with the job with no messing about. Their work is of an excellent standard. They are certainly our preferred choice of builders.

After having a leak in our kitchen under our floating floor our plumber recommended Shaun & Steve Longland of S L Building Contractors. They have helped us through the proses of our insurance claim. We had not met Shaun or Steve before and they did the work on our kitchen while we were away on holiday. They sorted out new work tops & a sink when our kitchen company let us & them down. They worked on time, were totally trust worthy & were extremely tidy workers? We would recommend S L Building Contractors for all your building work, big or small.

"We chose Longland builders to demolish an old wood and glass porch on the side of our house and build a permanent, brick under tiled roof, replacement.

Agreed dates were consistently met, all requirements were fully discussed and we were very pleased with the quality of the finished product and the cost of the project.

A number of our neighbours commented on how well the new porch blended with the original house.

Following this we had no hesitation in using Longlands to lay a large patio area at the sunny end of our garden including a low wall and privacy fencing. Planning, implementation and cost expectation matched those of the original build."


"All credit to these guys for a job well done. They coped admirably with all the last minute changes I threw at them as the job progressed. Sensible quote and good quality work"


"In 2011/12 Longlands were invited to tender to extend the Kitchen and then tender to completely re landscape the back garden the following year.

Both projects had challenging budgets with no room for overspend and important completion dates to meet specific family events.

They were competitive with price and gave commitments on timescales.

The kitchen was to be completed first, it involved major structural work including supporting the one corner of the house during the knock through process. All work was completed to budget and timescale and I was really pleased with the outcome in terms of quality.

I had the garden designed by a landscape designer which included two ponds, a large patio and a pavilion. The ponds hold 50,000 litres of water therefore were complex in their construction and needed to link into a natural wall which encompassed a firepit area. The work was completed within 6 weeks in time for my sons wedding, all was completed within budget and I was so pleased with the workmanship.

Both projects were completed with minimal problems with any variations discussed and agreed in advance. I found them very customer orientated by keeping me informed daily on work progress and that scheduled a week in advance, more importantly they always kept their promises. All communications were friendly and timely and the work although expected to be messy and dirty was kept to a minimum with the team clearing up every night.

I fully recommend them.. "

"SL Builders rebuilt my my front garden wall after. I am delighted with the new wall which has been built to a very high standard as well as the service provided throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
