Why Choose Us.
Sylvan construction is a small, family run business established in 1992, with a strong commitment customer service to high standards of craftsmanship and attention to detail.
We enjoy a challenge and welcome the opportunity to tackle interesting or unusual projects. We build extensions, carry out conversions and alterations, new build and various property improvement work such as driveways and entrances, patios, garden walls, garages and stables.
We also carry out landscaping work. We have designed and constructed a large number of complete gardens, and this has been a very popular aspect of our work. From a Japanese courtyard to a Hawaiian beach house we can create pretty much anything you can imagine in a garden.
We believe passionately in sustainable building methods and have always had an eye for more environmentally friendly materials and methods. The construction industry has a terrible record in this area but there are ways to reduce the potential carbon footprint of any project.
Energy efficiency is high on our list of priorities. Insulation is the key!! Good design initially but insulation saves energy for the client and helps reduce the impact on the environment.
We have experience of traditional timber framing, post and beam construction using heavy timbers and old fashioned pegged carpentry joints to build both visually pleasing and extremely strong structures.
Combining the best traditional techniques with modern methods and materials allows us to give each project its own unique character.
Whatever the size or type of project, we believe high standards of craftsmanship and detailed finishing are the ingredients for success.
