Don’t just take our word for it, see just some of the reviews from our satisfied customers



Paul and Leslie - 21/04/2016 - Patio area


Paul and his team have done a brilliant job, building our patio. They have worked in all weathers and the quality of their work is excellent. Thanks so much for giving us a lovely outside space.



The approach to our house has been completely transformed by your ground works and building work. The new retaining walls are so much better than the old ones which were bulging alarmingly. The terracing on the steep slope is a big improvement - we can now enjoy the front garden without sliding down a steep bank! Also, what a pleasure to be able to approach the house up steps which are even and level!
The drive looks great and we are looking forward to driving up and down without wheel spin.
We are very pleased overall and please do feel free to use any extracts from this email in your advertising.
Many thanks for all your hard work and friendly chats and please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team.

N Jacobs - 02/05/2015 - Restoration





May 2015




I have employed the services of Mr. Paul Stephen, being the proprietor of Powys Builders Limited based in Llanidloes, twice and have been exceedingly pleased with his work on both occasions.


We needed to employ a firm who had proven sympathy with stone buildings that required appropriate materials, knowledge and skill in order that they can be maintained and restored correctly. On both occasions Mr. Stephen offered realistic estimates in terms of the work time expected, material costs and commencement dates.  Mr. Stephen also offered a customer reference site which I visited to better determine his capabilities. The main works comprised of the repair and/or restoration (re-pointing) to the main house front stone wall including the replacement of two downstairs front window lintels. Mr. Stephen also undertook other works being the replacement of roof ridge tiles, repairing roof battens and replacing damaged roof slates, re-pointing of an external stone wall including two stone entrance pillars and various other minor works of a restoration/maintenance nature.


Mr. Stephen always commenced work on site as originally predicted.


Throughout the entire engagement period Mr. Stephen kept me totally up-to-date in respect of progress and his whereabouts if he was not onsite. Mr. Stephen ensured that the site was left clean at all times leaving rubble et cetera either in a skip or bagged up ready for my disposal at my convenience.


In respect of the actually work it exceeded all expectations in terms of quality of finish and I am very satisfied with same.


All works finished on time and within original estimates even though some additional minor works were added to the initial works that had been originally agreed.


Based solely on my experience I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Stephen of Powys Builders Limited in providing quality building and restoration services.

b mears - 30/04/2015 - EXTENSION




I have employed Paul for a second time in two years to build an extension to the barn conversion he completed for me last year.

He completed both projects on time and on budget.

I have been very satisfied with all aspects of his work from very competitive quotes through to completion of the work to a very high standard. He kept me informed at all times and was happy to discuss any aspect of his work. I was also impressed by the workmanship of his sub contractors who were also communicative and efficient.

I am happy to recommend Paul to anyone seeking a builder who wants a good job done with value for money.

Testimonial for Powys Builders


Following a very competitive quote, we recently engaged Paul Stephen to convert an area over our garage into an annexe.   We have been very impressed by his strong organisational ability and communication skills.  We were kept informed of progress at all stages of the project, and the final bill was identical to the quote (with the exception of some additional work demanded by the Buildings Inspector and a few extras that we decided upon rather late in the day).  We have had plenty of experience with builders in the past and we find this extraordinary.  The final result was of a very high standard and we would have no reservations about recommending Paul and Powys Builders.

Peter and Moira Barton, Guilsfield. 17/10/2012
Paul has just completed the construction of an annexe to our house. He first provided a detailed estimate based on our plans and discussed this fully with us. He started work on the date specified and worked here full time until the job was finished.
He also introduced a plumber, electrician and carpenter who have likewise proved very efficient, helpful and friendly and Paul co-ordinated the whole job including the building inspection.  We are delighted with his performance and with the results.
Paul, thank you again for a very good job.

Paul recently completed work for us that involved making two outbuildings usable for a workshop and essential maintenance on our house.  We are very pleased with the outcome.  Paul proved to be concientious, helpful and completed the work on time and to budget.  We would be happy to recommend him and will certainly use his services in the future.
