Our testimonials

If you want a job well done by courteous, punctual, friendly builders who know how a job should be done please look no further than Dean & his team at D.C.S Builders. We first met Dean approx. 14 years ago when he did a dormer conversion & new kitchen for our next door neighbours & again a few years ago when he put in a new bathroom for another neighbour. He was always extremely polite to us when we saw him & the work he did for both neighbours was completed to a very high standard. With that in mind when we decided to have our garage converted into a dining room & utility room we looked no further than Dean & we too could not be more pleased. Dean came round to discuss our plans & gave us valuable input to maximise the benefits of both rooms. There were no hidden costs & the work was completed as we expected to a very high standard indeed. Even the rubbish was cleared away daily...no unsightly skip on the front lawn. Now we have a lovely dining room & very useful utility instead of a garage which was too small for the car & the dumping ground for all our junk. We would have no hesitation in recommending D.C.S to anyone thinking of having building work done.

Having started the refurbishment of a small outbuilding to create a home office, small utility and cloakroom my progress was steady but slow. I contacted Dean to see if he would be interested in taking on the completion of a part way through project. Dean came to look and agreed to take on the completion. In many respects this was a bit like a house extension in miniature - electric underfloor heating, laminate flooring, quarry tiles, insulation of walls and roof prior to dry lining and plastering, new internal doorways, mini loft, worktop, external double glazed door, plumbing, rendering and guttering. From day one it was a pleasure to deal with Dean and his team. Everything was discussed and agreed, with Dean and Robbie making lots of useful suggestions along the way. All the work was completed to a very high standard and in a tidy manner. Absolutely delighted with the results. DCS will be my builder of choice and I have no hesitation in recommending their services to others for any building project. Whether large or small and whatever trades required to complete Dean and his team have the necessary skills and expertise. DCS really do tick all the boxes - dependable, excellent customer service, high quality work undertaken by a team taking pride in and happy in their work. A real find and local treasure.

Dean and his team carried out a garage conversion for us having previously completed a smaller project (construction of outside storage built on to the side of the house). The conversion also involved a complete refit of our kitchen, with the end result being an open plan kitchen/diner. We are thrilled with the results and wish we had done the job years ago! Dean strives for a professional approach at every stage of the project from detailed planning through to construction, snagging and completion. Communication channels are very much open (even whilst I was abroad) and I always felt that I knew what the next stage of the project was. Dean was able to resolve any issues as they arose and without delay. Living without a kitchen with small children was a slightly daunting prospect, but Dean and his team made sure that we had the essentials set up and were more than happy to work around our requirements. I know many people that have undertaken building work on their homes, only to be confronted with escalating costs as the project continues. This is not Dean’s approach and the cost of our project was within the budget agreed at the outset. Many thanks to Dean and all of his team!

DCS have installed a new bathroom and kitchen for us. both were not without problems.We were promptly consulted regarding the issues found and discussed the best course of action for solution. DCS were wholly professional from start to finish and we cannot fault the finished rooms we have been given. the finish and attention to detail are first class. All staff/trades were very friendly and clean and tidy.

Neil Walden, Eastwood ()

A very professional team.Dean thoroughly explained what was needed to complete the job, and gave us a few options so we could pick one to suit the budget.No money was paid until the job was done to our satisfaction. The work was done very promptly and a couple of other small jobs were done at no extra cost.The team were hardworking,friendly and courteous.Work was done to a high standard. Im sure the job could have been done cheaper,but cheaper options are rarely the best, and often extra costs are added as the work progresses.Basically you get what you pay for.Its a bit like choosing to have breakfast at greasy joes or a seafront restaurant! Both provide you with food but what a different experience. Thankyou DCS Builders.

My wife and I are extremely please with the service provided by DCS Services. We are particularly impressed with the quality of their craftsmanship, time keeping, cleanliness and overall efficiency. All members of staff were friendly and helpful and were happy to explain what they were doing and why they were doing it. Each stage of the project was well planned and everyone worked hard to ensure that we were wholly satisfied with daily progress. We were kept fully informed, throughout the entire project, and the outcome of their work was exemplary. I would not hestitate to recommend DCS Services in the future.

Jim Noakes, Leigh On Sea ()

We are so happy with our kitchen makeover/re-fit. Dean and his team were a pleasure to deal with. All of them helpful, professional,reliable and friendly. They carried on working through freezing weather conditions, went above and beyond to get things completed to schedule and nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend DCS Builders Services to anyone without hesitation and would call Dean up again in the future if needed.

Charlotte And Daniel Muttock, Southend On Sea ()

Dean was very patient with me as there were many decisions to be made with my work but nothing was too much trouble. The workmen were always polite and trustworthy, with excellent timekeeping. Everywhere was always left clean and tidy and the rubbish was removed to avoid an unsightly mess. The attention to detail has been a pleasure to experience. I would certainly use dcs and recommend them to my family and friends.

Mrs Cheryl Beattie, Essex ()

We were able to discuss our requirements, and were offered some alternative options to achieve our goal that we hadn't even considered, so we were in a position to fine tune our project to get the desired result. The job ran exactly to the time table that we agreed, and finished ahead of the expected time. Everyone who worked on the project was very pleasent and efficient and maintained a constant check with us to ensure that they were meeting expectations. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended.

We have known Dean for several years and during this time he has carried out various building work for us. He recently completed an extension, garage conversion and bathroom refit for us which we are delighted with. He and his staff are always polite, courteous and always try to keep disruption to a minimum to ensure family life is not impacted. The DCS building team are highly recommended by us.

Mr And Mrs Worrall, Rayleigh ()

DCS services were great. The workers turned up on time without fail and did an excellent job on the garage conversion. It was done quickly and efficiently and the process was stress free around our busy lives. If something needed doing it was done and after care was also great. Great Job.

Dan Bray, Benfleet ()

DCS Builder Services were very quick, clean and efficient. Workmanship of a very high standard. Always cleared and cleaned up the site every day after work was finished. Willing to do any overlooked jobs that needed doing without overcharging. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

All the jobs were completed in the overall timescale that was agree at the outset. We are very pleased with the end result.
