Our testimonials

I was recommended to Dean and his team by a neighbour, initially to carry out drainage work. Subsequently they repaved my driveway, side path and patio. I found them to be friendly, reliable and trustworthy, and the work was carried out to a high standard.

Almost a year to the day of moving into my run down bungalow, Dean and his team have totally renovated it. Stage 1 was the inside which involved gutting the house, fitting kitchen, bathroom all rooms plastered, decorated and new flooring. It was completed in a couple of months and looked amazing. They returned to complete the outside, I couldn’t be happier. I have a fully landscaped garden, new drive and front garden. The only thing that remains is the bricks and roof (which also had a cleanup which I would highly recommend, makes the roof look brand new). Dean and his team are fantastic, excellent craftsmen, clean, polite and always there when they say they will be. Would highly recommend.

One evening early in August we noticed water seeping through our kitchen floor. We had used Dean at DCS before so messaged him in the hope that he could help.

Dean and Rob arrived early the following morning to survey the scene, even though they were very busy.

They immediately started to find the source of the leak, the damage was far worse than originally thought.

All new pipe work throughout the ground floor was completed, the floor relaid and the kitchen redecorated. All this work was carried out in a very professional manner and we couldn’t be happier knowing that water ingress could never happen again.

We have no hesitation in recommending Dean and his team at DCS. They all are very experienced, very patient with their clients and it was a pleasure to have them working in our home.

Previously to this project we had thankfully come into contact with Dean and his team, he was extremely helpful at short notice providing a temporary solution. This allowed us time to consider all our options for the longer term solution of what to do with the space vacated by a large outbuilding which was in poor repair. Dean was extremely helpful, patient and very sympathetic with the needs of my recently widowed mother. His creativity, knowledge and ability to problem solve made a situation that was overwhelming to us easy to deal with. All of his team were delightful, thoughtful, tidy and a pleasure to deal with. The space now is amazing, a multi-purpose area with a great patio including a covered area offering protection from the weather, beautiful fencing and landscaping. My mother and I are delighted. I would not hesitate again to recommend Dean and his team to anyone. My husband and I are already looking at projects in our own home that we are sure Dean will be able to help us with and know that we will be as delighted as my mother. Thank you Dean

Dean and his team were personally recommended to us and after seeing some of his high-quality work we were keen to secure his services. The team converted an internal garage into a kid’s playroom, which involved putting in an internal door, fitting two new windows, insulating, plastering and decorating internally and building bespoke storage cupboards. Throughout the process Dean consulted us on different decisions and was able to advise and accommodate our wishes. The whole team were very friendly and reliable, and we built a strong rapport with them. We would highly recommend Dean and his team and have plans to use them again in the future.

Dean and his team have carried out several jobs at my property over the last few years and I have been very happy with all of them. Jobs include replacement floor, digging out a damaged outside drain and replacing, laying a new stone patio, fitting a new kitchen window and painting outside walls of the property as well as building me a new shed in the garden. All his team work to a very high standard and I will not hesitate to call on DCS again when the need arises.

Dean and his team completed a variety of jobs for me including solar outside lights, putting up blinds, TV on wall, garden mirror., taps dripping and sink leaking and replacement taps. Great to get all these jobs done at the same. Friendly and professional service. Would recommend

Janice Bryan, Hockley ()

Our new neighbour recently had her property completely renovated by Dean and his superb team of workers. We were so impressed that we asked him to carry out work for us too - we were not disappointed! Helpful, experienced, friendly and conscientious and we would recommend them without reservation.

Alan Davison, Rayleigh ()

We had various building works undertaken which included bricklaying, plastering, electrics, plumbing, roofing, insulation and rendering. Dean was able to advise the best course of action for each of the jobs done. We are extremely satisfied with all the works completed and would certainly recommend them. The builders are all very friendly and approachable and tidy up after themselves and the end result looks fantastic.

Michael Borthwick, Rochford ()

Having had Dean and his team convert my garage, back in 2014, I had no hesitation in contacting them again when I knew I wanted some more work done. My only reservation was that perhaps the job was too small. However, I need not have worried. Dean was happy to take the work on – replacing an internal window with a sheet of obscure glass and removing a glazed external door, bricking up the bottom and installing a window with fanlight. As before, attention to detail was paramount and I am delighted with the end result. It was a pleasure having the team here again and, as before, it felt like saying goodbye to old friends when the job was complete! So, a big thank you to Dean, Harry, Rob and Dave, not forgetting Darren who cleared away all the rubbish! I would certainly have no hesitation in once again availing myself of their expertise in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend DCS Services!

I cannot recommend DCS highly enough, they have dealt with a range of building works for my family, always with a superb finish, neat and tidy throughout and no job too small. They are an absolute pleasure to deal with and I am already booking them in again!

Cassie Davies, Southend-on-Sea ()

Another great job from DCS

Dean, as usual, was very organised and arranged for Rob to replace the extractor fan in our shower room which was no easy feat, but he did an absolutely splendid job.

We would not hesitate to recommend DCS to anyone wanting a first class job.

Reliable and professional tradesman are like gold dust and so when in August 2021 we decided to combine a garage conversion with replacing our kitchen and bathroom I knew I had filed the DCS Builders invoice from 2006 for future reference. We were very pleased to find that Dean had gone from strength to strength in the intervening years and from his first visit he provided expert advice and helpful proposals for our project. As well as developing our ideas to get the most from what space we had, Dean programmed the work to ensure that we had a new shower room before replacing our bathroom and constructed a temporary kitchen from the existing units for us to use whilst creating our new kitchen. Temporary gazebo’s were erected front and back to minimise joinery and plumbing fabrication in the house and every effort was made to minimise the dramatic effects of cut and carve works inside the house. Dean is a perfectionist and experience has lead him to provide top quality fixtures and fittings resulting in many pleasant surprises that tempted us to rename No 5 “High End House”. Dean, Dave, Harry, Rob and Martin are a great skill mix team and happy crew to have in your house and their aim is solutions and not problems. We are delighted with the end result and would highly recommend DCS Builders to all.
