About ST Portess & Son

Building in Lincolnshire since 1913

Established by George Portess in 1913 as Wheelwrights and Carpenters, ST Portess & Son evolved into general builders during the ownership of Stanley T Portess.

ST Portess & Son Builders are a small family owned and run business based in Frithville, Boston. Nigel Portess, proprietor of the business for the last 30 years, continues to carry out general building works within the Lincolnshire area and has established a wide and loyal customer base.

How do we do it?

Should you require any of our services we will be happy to meet with you to discuss your requirements, no matter how minor you may think they are. We will be happy to discuss your plans and advise you of the best course of action to take, whether at concept or construction phase.

Work will not commence until programmed to suit your requirements and our current workload. We’re not in the habit of disappointing new or old customers by giving unrealistic start or completion dates. We know all too well the disruption building works cause to our customers and aim to minimise this at all times.

Working closely with your chosen architect or design plans, we ensure your needs are met and that any work carried out meets your satisfaction.

Using our small team of time served tradesmen and selected sub-contractors we will turn around quality workmanship every time.

Our aim is to maintain great customer relations and be first choice for future work. Nothing gives us more satisfaction than when our customers are asked by friends and family to recommend a building firm, and the name they give is ST Portess & Son.

Benefits of using ST Portess & Son

1  Competitive

Although we consider ourselves to be competitive, we do provide realistic estimates based on many years of experience and will often not be the cheapest. However it is these estimates that will provide you with a guide to establishing a realistic build budget.

2  Quality

We believe in providing the highest possible standard of work and will not sacrifice quality and ultimately your satisfaction by providing unrealistic estimates in order to win work.

3  Experience

Offering four generations of construction experience, employing time-served tradespeople and approved specialist contractors.

4  Peace of Mind

We take our responsibilities seriously with regard to public safety and the welfare of our site staff and customers, ensuring all legislation is adhered to and all necessary insurances are in place.

5  Reliability

Having established a loyal customer base over many years and even generations, we consider ourselves to be reliable and trustworthy. We believe this to be our strength and do not plan on changing this anytime soon.

6  Consideration

We understand the upheaval and inconvenience that building works can cause whether this be relating to domestic alterations or insurance repair work.  Our management and friendly site team appreciate this fact and it is our aim for all works to be carried out with your needs considered throughout the project.

  • ST Portess & Son carried out our insurance repair work with professionalism and all staff were considerate to our needs. They worked with our insurance company and engineer to carry out the work specified to a high standard, with minimal disruption.

  • We’ve used ST Portess for a variety of building works over the years and have always been delighted with the end result. It’s easy to see why they’ve been in business for over 100 years when other building firms seemingly come and go overnight. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

  • ST Portess & Son have undertaken a variety of projects at my house, including structural alterations, installing new concrete floors and the rearrangement of two bathrooms. All of this work has been project managed well, completed to a high standard and charged at the original price estimated. Highly recommended.
