David Carr Dean and his team have done an excellent job on our loft conversion. Throughout the whole process the work was carried out to a high standard, was completed on budget and within the timescales initially estimated. All the way throughout the job we were kept informed of what was happening and Dean and the whole DCS team were helpful, tidy and went out of their way to ensure that any disruption was kept to an absolute minimum. I would recommend DCS without hesitation and will be using them myself again in the future.

JUNE 2013 - CANEWDON - MRS CRIPPS

We were very pleased with the work that DCS Services did on our flat roof. They were extremely professional, friendly and always cleaned up after a day's work. Would recommend to anyone.


JUNE 2013 - HULLBRIDGE - MRS PRYKE

This is the first time I have used the site and was impressed with the speed at which I was contacted. Dean contacted me the same evening and arranged to call early the following morning to obtain information, provide guidance and check what was required. Later the same day I was provided with a full quote. I didn't take the quote up only because the job needs doing fairly urgently - I was really impressed with the professionalism and information provided.


JULY 2013 - WESTCLIFF - MRS SWINTON

Fantastic customer service, reliable, friendly and dependable. Job was to replace bathroom taps & was completed perfectly, no mess, no problems. Thank you very much!


NOVEMBER 2013 - SHOEBURY - MRS SAMMUT

excellent work and attitude


OCTOBER 2013 - THORPE BAY - MR & MRS RAINBIRD

Our bathroom was in desperate need of a complete refit so we contacted a couple of local builders but they didn't really want the job. So we were recommended the use of DCS Services through a friend who had recently used them. And we are so glad we did have them, really professional in all aspects of the work, they were clean tidy, friendly and punctual. A really superb job that didn't cost the earth. We will be highly recommending them to others and will definitely use them in the future. Thanks again guys for a lovely job.


SEPTEMBER 2013 - WESTCLIFF - MRS BRIDGER I was very happy with all the jobs that were done in my kitchen by very helpful and friendly men. Thank you.
AUGUST 2013 - SOUTHEND ON SEA - MRS BURNS

The young plumber who fitted our new sinks was polite and friendly. He left my kitchen worktops spotless.


AUGUST 2013 - SOUTHEND ON SEA - MR & MRS PICKETT

Dean offers an excellent and professional service, highly recommended.


AUGUST 2013 - SOUTHEND ON SEA - MR & MRS PARKER

DCS provide a level of service that ensures that the job gets done properly. They are able to suggest design alterations which may not have been apparent and work to a high standard with staff who we had no concerns about leaving in our home to get on with their work. We have recommended DCS before and shall do again.


JULY 2013 - ROCHFORD - MR & MRS REEVES

We found DCS a very professional and friendly company. We would use them again in the future and thoroughly recommend them.


JULY 2013 - ASHINGDON - MR & MRS GRAVESTOCK

We were very impressed with deans professionalism from the outset. He assured us that all his work adhered to council and building regulations and insisted that we contact the council to dispute another builders plan, which could have proved a costly mistake for us. Dean directly co ordinated all of the work which was carried out to a very high standard, whilst also being mindful of our budget. The workforce were professional, friendly and polite, they took the time to explain the process and fully answered all our queries. They acted like gentlemen at all times and we have no hesitation in recommending their services to an elderly neighbour. We are delighted with our garage conversion and will continue to recommend DCS to friends and colleagues. We add an extra thank you to Brett who took the time to call round and resolve an ongoing issue with the electrics.


JUNE 2013 - CANEWDON - MR & MRS CRIPPS

Excellent service, particularly cleanliness. Friendly and trustworthy. Very pleased with the finished job. Will contact in future if my extension plan gets any futher!


MAY 2013 - ROCHFORD - SUE COLEMAN

I was pleasantly surprised at how simple the whole process was from initial contact to completion. The finished product was even better that I had anticipated. I am already planning my next project.


MAY 2013 - THUNDERSLEY - MR & MRS MORGAN

Thanks Dean for 2 jobs really well done. Love my new look bathroom, I can't stop using the garage door. You should also be very proud of your workers who all were very polite, worked well and left the place clean & tidy at night in addition to doing a good job. Will not hestitate to use you again when needed. Thanks Again.


APRIL 2013 - ASHINGDON - MRS STANDRING SMITH

I used DCS Services on the recommendation of my neighbour and I have not been dissapointed. Dean and his team did an excellent job of re-roofing my garage and porch roof under adverse weather conditions. I would recommend them to anyone looking for professionalism, politness and cheerfulness.


MARCH 2013 - RAYLEIGH - MR & MRS MACKENSIE

We found Dean to be very helpful & patient with us. He is knowledgable and always keen to offer solutions. We would happily recommend Dean to friends and family.


JANUARY 2013 - LEIGH ON SEA - MR & MRS SIMPSON


When choosing the builder we wished to partner with for the extension and renovation of our house, our choice was guided largely by our impression of Dean as an individual. He struck us immediately as someone we felt we could trust with our property and as someone who cared about his trade. (When he first saw our old bathroom his reaction was a muttered 'oh, that's ridiculous'.). We decided that we would trust him with our house, and then once he had the general gist of what we wished to achieve, the day to day decisions that would enable him to achieve it. This is not to say that we were unaware of what was going on; in fact the communication was excellent and we were always made aware of what was going on and of the times when he felt there were options we should consider. We never felt pressured into taking the more expensive options, although we often did! He was good at managing our expectations as to what was achievable and also innovative in some of the solutions he came up with, and we have come out of this process with pretty much all that we could have possibly hoped for. Of course there have been inevitable teething issues, but he has maintained an excellent level of aftercare to get us through the odd hiccup here and there. I would also comment that it was a very nice touch that he took his time to get to know us as more than just customers.

In the end though, I can only give some of the comments from our friends and family: "beautiful", "fab", "incredible", "you can hardly believe it's the same house".

I think that probably says it all.


DECEMBER 2012 - WESTCLIFF ON SEA - MR & MRS GRAHAM

Dean at DCS was a great help & provided great assistance with designing the layout & finish of our bathroom.  


NOVEMBER 2012 - HOCKLEY - MR & MRS COLLINS

We have been really happy with the helpful, professional and excellent customer care- from the first visit to the final day. The finish is great and the workers were punctual, polite and professional. Would definately use again. Thank you, Cathryn, Andy and Imogen.


SEPTEMBER 2012 - WESTCLIFF - ROGER, JOHN & HAYLEY

After years of trying to renovate our property ourselves, we decided to employ DCS to conduct, what was in effect, a complete rebuild. Having seen first-hand a previous project they had undertaken, we had confidence that DCS were the team to do it. A project of this size was never going to be completely straightforward and inevitably some problems occurred, which were swiftly and professionally resolved by the DCS team. At all times the DCS team conducted themselves politely and cheerfully. They continually provided good ideas and inspiration for the project and when changes did occur we were fully consulted and informed. In what was a stressful 3 months for everyone involved we are extremely happy with the end result and would never have achieved this standard on our own. Even a year after completion the property still receives compliments and is a credit to Dean and the DCS team. Thank you


JULY 2012 - LEIGH ON SEA - MR & MRS COLLINS

An excellent service, personal, expert advice, caring and polite. Reliable, helpful and professional.


MAY 2012 - THORPE BAY - MR & MRS SOLANKI

We used Dean on a small job in our previous house to see how he performed. we then appointed him to do a complete refurbishment on our new much larger property, an extension and restructuring of some internal walls. It was a first for us. Dean guided us from the outset starting with architect, planning, ideas, opinions, designs. He gave time, attention, communicated promptly by phone text and email, took on responsibility and managed the whole job extremely well. Service, time keeping, reliability, cleanliness, quality of work, sorting out snags, personal touch are all his real strengths. He instilled a sort of confidence from the outset which was important so we could carry on with our own business, not worry unduly and sleep well at night. All of his workmen took their time but did an excellent job. 

Would we have him again?

Of course, Yes!


FEBRUARY 2012 - THORPE BAY - MR & MRS MALLION

My wife and I were overjoyed at the finished project undertaken by DCS Services. The refurbished En-Suite shower room exceeded our expectations and we are delighted with the end result. All of the workmen employed were masters of their craft and were polite friendly folk who always took great care to leave everything in a clean and tidy state. We think DCS are a class act and would recommend them to anyone.


NOVEMBER 2011 - LEIGH ON SEA - MR & MRS CREED

Extremely efficient and kept us well informed of progress. Any issues were quickly and efficiently resolved - responsiveness was excellent. Would happily recommend. (Mrs & Mrs Creed are related to Mr & Mrs Creed from May2 011)


OCTOBER 2011 - HOCKLEY - MR & MRS SMYTH

Very satisfied with the work undertaken. The bathroom was fitted in the owners' absense, but updates were regularly given and clarification of requirements always sought where necessary. There was a professional, helpful and very prompt response to any queries or problems encountered.


SEPTEMBER 2011 - THORPE BAY - MR & MRS BOX

We had a few problems with the delivery companies bringing the wrong sanitary ware but this was overcome eventually & we are now the proud owners of a lovely shower room to replace our old bathroom.

The only reservation we have is why didn't we have it done years ago. Thank You.

Gill & Dave


JULY 2011 - WESTCLIFF ON SEA - JANE HART

Very sociable and helpful team. Would definitely recommend DCS.


JULY 2011 - WESTCLIFF ON SEA - CHRISTINE JEFFERIES

My home was always freezing cold in the winter. I had a survey by British Gas who suggested I replaced two radiators with larger ones. DCS recommended all radiators should be replaced and an additional one installed. The cost of an entire new system was the same as two replacements from British Gas. There was no sales pressure and I was left to decide and talk to family and friends. The work work was carried out efficiently and extremely cleanly. Staff were absolutley brilliant.

I cannot recommend this company highly enough and will certainly employ them again!


JUNE 2011 - HOCKLEY - MR & MRS CAIRNS

We have been very happy from the first contact to the end of the work, with the excellent customer service and communication Dean has provided. His care and support were second to none. We are very satisfied with the rooms - it is lovely to have this level of luxury.


JUNE 2011 - LEIGH ON SEA - R.WELLINGTON & R.WADE

I would not hesitate to recommend DCS Services to anybody looking for a professional, efficient company. We are extremely pleased with the work they have completed for us.


MAY 2011 - LEIGH ON SEA - MR & MRS CREED

Thoroughly professional team, always cheerful, hardworking and 'on the job' everyday!

I am delighted with all the completed work - it has exceeded my expectations. Many Thanks to all involved.


APRIL 2011 - LEIGH ON SEA - MR & MRS MCGUIRE

BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS.

Always available by phone and email. Responded professionally on every occasion we required help and advice. Dean and his team were always on time, friendly and gave us confidence in their ability to provide a continuous excellent service. Dean met all our preferences and gave excellent advice and service. We have every confidence in him. His team were friendly, professional and reassuring.

We felt confident and at ease with all Dean's team at all times. Everyone was helpful, trustworthy and reliable.


MARCH 2011 - BENFLEET - MR & MRS THOMPSON

Would be happy to have all the tradesmen back for any future project as they did a good job and were easy to deal with.


JANUARY 2011 - WICKFORD - MR & MRS QUIRK

For us this company was a real find.

We found DCS excellent in every way. Their work is of a very high standard. Nothing is too much trouble. All of their work force are very pleasant, friendly and polite. We will gladly recommend them to anyone who is contemplating having any sort of building work. They are punctual and you can rely on them to work a full day without interruption.
