At J.H. Payne Builders, we pride ourselves on our high standards and the quality of our work.

With over 45 years of experience, we’ve established ourselves as a leading building contractor within East Sussex.

We work across the commercial and domestic sectors, providing a wide range of quality building, plumbing, electrical and joinery services, from conversions and refurbishments to new extensions and bespoke new build houses.

Established in Sussex in 1968 by John Payne, the business grew and became a limited company in 1985 before its present owner Dave Humphreys bought it in 1998.

Today, J.H. Payne employs 30 people and we work in an approximate 25-mile radius from our base in Hailsham, East Sussex, covering Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove, Worthing, Crawley, East Grinstead, Tunbridge Wells, Rye, Crowborough, Haywards Heath and everywhere in between.

You can visit our services page to find out more about what we do. Alternatively, you can always give us a call on 01323 841532 or email enquiries@jhpayne.co.uk for more information or to arrange for a survey and quotation for the works required.
