About Us 7204A complete solution…..

Welcome to South Hams Building Company Ltd – a well known and trusted name in the roofing business. Located a few miles from Totnes we are a tight knit team of professionals with unmatched expertise in all aspects of roofing – both old and new, flat and pitched, tiled and leaded – we have the people with the skills for all jobs …. no matter how big or small.


As all our staff  are trained and employed which means total control over project management, from budgeting to standards –  not only in what we deliver but also how we behave and conduct ourselves on site; we are of course all CRB checked.


We offer a full range of skills including specialist lead work, carpentry, stone work, plastering and lime rendering in addition to roofing methods using materials for old and new flat and pitched roofs including shingles, tiles and slates; we are as happy fixing a small leak or a cracked chimney as we are renovating a historic roof or repairing or building a new roof on a commercial property or your home.

Whatever the job you’ll get an honest appraisal and the best advice for all work.


Unrivalled Experience 7171Unrivalled experience…. We have 25 years’ experience of roof building, refurbishment and renovation in and around the South Hams, South Devon and Dartmoor in addition to East Cornwall and West Somerset and with a team of experts – each with many years’ experience of their own – few come close to sharing our deep knowledge about the sourcing and use of local materials and traditional methods along with the choices around modern materials and techniques. But whether a new build or a heritage renovation you will have access to special knowledge on-site across all disciplines including masonry and wood work, lead and tiling…

No matter what the solution, we will allocate our expert in that area.


Sympathetic Approach 7129Sympathetic approach While the aesthetics of a project are often referred to in connection with historic buildings of national interest and heritage we believe all projects – both new and old – need to be framed and need to sit well within their surroundings; they have to have the quality of ‘pleasing to the eye’ –  This is particularly important for older buildings with loft conversion and dormer windows, but it also applies to roofing extensions and local repairs along with modern flat roof alternatives to traditional lead work.



We say that if you can’t see what we have done… then we have done a good job.
