About Us

Extension Specialists

If you are planning an extension you should firstly head to our Extensions page to see if we can help you.

With so many reputable builders out there we at Martin Shaw Building Services know that we have to offer you more. As customers ourselves we understand the significance of your project. It’s not just the finished job that’s important, it’s how we get there that also counts. We have a team of highly experienced tradesmen and builders and we cover most of the Midlands including Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Cannock, Stafford, Lichfield and the surrounding areas. We specialise in building extensions and are fully equipped to handle your request. You do not have to hire many different trades and organise schedules of work, we will take care of everything for you. At whichever stage you’re at we can guide you through the entire process. We have been constructing extensions like yours for years and have come across most problems. We pride ourselves on delivering projects on time and to the budget indicated within the quote.

For Your Peace of Mind

All our extensions come with a written 2 year warranty, subject to conditions. So you can be assured that in the unlikely event that there is a problem you will be covered.  We are also a member of the Accreditus Register and a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen and as such must abide by their codes of conduct. Read about our Affiliations and why they are important.

Design and Build

If you do not yet have plans drawn up then we can help. You can get a complete design and build package that can take your initial idea through all its stages to finished project. You will have access to local architects who will produce a full set of working drawings complete with a set of specification notes using up to date building regulations. On site visits will be arranged and structural engineering surveys, party wall act legislation and steel calculations can all be organised if required. We can then help with planning permission and liaise with your local council to ensure that the process is hassle free. If you are unsure if you need planning permission click here for a brief overview.

FREE Multi Page Quotation

Whether you have had plans drawn up yourself or our help you can obtain a free no obligation quotation that is structured in detail to allow you to see the entire process in black and white. We will construct a detailed quote that clearly maps out all building requirements, time frames and payment structures. This ensures that there are no nasty extras at the end. We make it a priority to provide you with as much information up front so that you can make an informed decision. We do not offer under priced quotes and then add extras that you thought were included. You can then budget for that dream kitchen or that family holiday with the peace of mind that the cost of the build is not going to escalate out of control. When work commences the quote will act as an aid or check list ensuring that you get exactly what you’re paying for. Click here to read our Price Guarantee to give you complete peace of mind.


You can be assured that we have the facilities to undertake all aspect of your build, from the first shovel to break ground through to the last drop of paint. We will carry out all your work including the excavation of foundations and underground drainage, the sub-structure floor and up to damp. We will construct the main shell of your build including windows and doors and erect the roof complete with all fascias and guttering. All aspects of your internal requirements will be catered for, from electrics and plumbing to plastering and carpentry. You can rest assured that each tradesman that undertakes a particular aspect of your build is trained in that area and is more than capable of completing it to a high standard.

It’s your home not our building site

All your work will be completed to building regulations and to your personal specifications. Health and safety is of the up most importance so we aim to keep all sites clean and tidy and free from hazards. When work begins we ensure that there is as little disruption to you as possible. Our expert advice is on hand throughout the build if you require it. We understand that many projects have an organic feel and we try to accommodate alterations. By communicating with you throughout the build and explaining the procedures we find that much of the stress can be relieved and should even be an enjoyable experience. It will be our pleasure to help you create your ideal home.

Not Just Extensions

As you can appreciate, by undertaking extensions as our main source of work we do have the skill set to take on smaller projects. We quite often return to previous clients to lay patios or install bathrooms or kitchens. Even whole house refurbishments. If this is something that you require firstly take a look at our gallery to view some of our past projects and then contact us, either by filling in the form to the left or calling on the number above.
