Well I am very proud to announce that R & BH Alderson are the proud winners of the LABC Building Excellence awards 2016 for Best Local Builder.

I would like to thank all of our staff for doing an outstanding job and in maintaining the highest quality in workmanship that we as a company pride ourselves on, thus, enabling us to achieve this prestigious award and confirming our belief that we are Durhams number 1 small builder. 

We will now be automatically nominated for the national awards held in November in London and will keep you posted on this.

Many thanks

Greg & Ian .


We have successfully been nominated again for this prestigious award  this year (2016). We will find out in July  if we have been successful,  been nominated again is something we are very proud of.

We Aldersons, as a company, pride ourselves on been Durham`s number 1 small builder. Currently celebrating our 95th year as a family business we have seen the company grow from horse and cart to fleet of vehicles and over the years have established ourselves as a well-known trusted builder providing nothing but a quality service.

With a specialist workforce in all areas we can carry out works from drainage to roofing and everything else in between.

Our workforce, a lot who have been with us for over 25 years know exactly what it takes to work in private dwellings given peace of mind for our clients that they are in safe hands. The vast experience from our workforce enables us to ensure that our new apprentices have the best chance of making it within the building trade with most staying with us long after their time is served.

Having a good relationship with Building Control ensures that all projects are carried out as standard and regular site meetings with the clients we can provide exactly what the customer specifications are, whether this be simply a style of door or something a little bit more bespoke, having a full time craftsman in our joiners workshop means we can always deliver the client’s needs.

With the use of a well-trained and updated workforce we use both modern day and traditional methods to carry out a project in a safe and structured manner resulting in minimum disruption to the home owner.

Our work does not stop once the project is finished, we constantly try to better our standards. We believe our after sales service is second to none resulting in fantastic customer relations, that along  with our customer feedback form issued, we can always make sure with are giving customer satisfaction.


Unfortunately we didn`t win. We were nominated for the finalist along with 7 other builders throughout the North East. We are the only builder in Durham to be nominated so we are very proud of what we have all achieved. Maybe next year…….
