About Alan Overton Builders

The Overton family, originally based in South London, have been builders for three generations. Alan Overton Builders was formed in 1965 and moved to its new base in the Cranleigh area, Surrey in 1978. The small family run business has undertaken a variety of work over the years, which includes domestic extensions, church halls, sports halls, new builds, renovation and alterations.

Our regular labour force is supplemented when needed by specialist sub-contractors as required. All of our sub contractors are well known and respected tradesmen.

Building Expertise

Roofing


We carry out a range of roofing works, which includes overhauling existing timbers and tiles, replacing as necessary and constructing new roofs as part of an extension. We always use treated timbers and can work either to Architects and Engineers drawings, or can design and construct ourselves.

We also repair or replace all types of flat roofs. When replacing, we take up and re-lay new coverings to felt roofs, on inspection we sometimes find the decking needs to be renewed as well. When a flat roof leaks , the decking can be weakened by the moisture . We always lay down three layers of hot bitumen bonded felt which is usually coated with solar reflecting white granite chippings. We guarantee all of our roofs for a period of ten years for standard felts and twenty years for high tensile felts.

Kitchens


'New build' kitchens and extensions have been a part of our business for many years now. We can also fit new kitchen units and appliances. Our suppliers cover a range of styles and prices but whether you choose a budget or a bespoke kitchen, we will fit to the same high standard.

Landscaping


Again, this sort of work we have carried out through extension contracts. We have worked with all kinds of materials from block paving to Yorkstone in all kinds of patterns. Driveways, paths, stonework walls and patios as well as timber decking, can all be carried out by us.

We also work closely with Jason Weir Landscaping & Stonework, who specialise in Stonework and Hard and Soft Landscaping. Jason is related to Alan Overton, reflecting the family run nature of our business.

Extensions


This is the area of our work which keeps us the busiest. We have carried out a wide range of extensions, large and small in both the housing area and public buildings. If you look at our portfolio of recent activity, you will see the range of work.

Electrics


Rewires and alterations to existing electrical systems, telephone extensions, TV aerial extensions and computer networking can all be carried out by our highly trained electrical engineers. As security becomes a more and more important issue for people, we now install house burglar alarm systems as well as camera observation technology.

Plumbing & Heating


Plumbing and heating is a very personal choice for families and we prefer to liaise with clients over all aspects of the planning process. We have a good advisory service which has proven to be an invaluable way of spotting any possible snags ahead, in order to achieve the best results. Type and position of boiler and radiators plus the positioning of pipes can be thought through carefully before work begins.

Windows & Doors


Although we are not a replacement window and door specialist, we have often carried out this work as a part of an extension or alteration contract. We can supply and fit UVPC replacements to any design as well as timber in softwood or hardwood. These are double glazed and meet the new Building Regulation insulation requirements.
