About Us

Plastering and construction specialists in Brighton, Hove, Portslade & Shoreham

A few words about us

A plastering and construction firm you can rely on, established in 2002 and growing ever since.

After falling into the trade as a teenager, Andy quickly came to love the art and craftsmanship of plastering, completing his apprenticeship before setting up his own firm. Working alongside some of the largest contractors in Sussex, Deacon Contractors soon established an exemplary reputation, whilst continuing to service many of the domestic homes all around the county.

Known throughout Sussex as a reputable company where long lasting quality matters.
Formerly known as Sussex Plastering Ltd, the move in to other areas of construction as well as the main service of plastering brought about the name change to Deacon Contractors. Whilst continuing to provide the highest quality plastering service available, Deacon Contractors has combined with some of the most reputable tradesmen in other fields to offer a full package wherever possible – ensuring an efficient and effective project management service that reduces time, expense and the possibility of a diminished quality product.
