Our testimonials

We wanted a kitchen/dining room extension built onto the back of our house. After getting plans and planning permissions we looked on the web for local builders. D.C.S. Services were the best choice we could have made. After reading the many good testimonials from people in our area on their web site we contacted Dean Dalton who came and discussed our project in detail and gave us some very good ideas of what could be achieved in a limited space. Work was started with a team who were all very skilled and efficient at their jobs also they were very friendly and pleasant and gave us confidence that the finished job would look great. Disruption was kept to a minimum and the unexpected problems that a occur with all add on building work were solved professionally. All work was completed to a very high standard. We now have a lovely kitchen/diner with lots of cupboard space, a raised decking area and a downstairs toilet and shower. The whole finished job by Dean and the guys is even better than we had hoped for. A big thank you.

Dean visited and made several useful suggestions for a small piece of work on our newbuild house. His team came promptly and carried out the work efficiently. I should be glad to recommend him to anyone.

DCS was recommended to us by a friend who had some recent work done, he was highly complimentary on Dean and his team and the quality of their work. We approached Dean about a loft conversion but he suggested a better and cheaper way to achieve what we wanted with a first floor extension which would mean less disruption. Whilst we were waiting for planning approval DCS sorted out a leaking flat roof for us, it wasn’t straightforward to find or to sort out but they did find the leak and there has been no further leaks since. The team have just completed the work on the house extension to a very high standard and we are extremely pleased with the result. The outside has been matched to the rest of the period house and doesn’t look like an add on. The inside is much better than we envisioned, due to Dean’s ideas, although this did result in some extra costs. The level of disruption has been limited the team timely, polite and helpful, the mess limited. The project has not been cheap but Dean was upfront about this, if you want cheap and cheerful then DCS are not right for you. We would whole heartedly recommend DCS.

DCS Services have carried out extensive work on our property, to say we are delighted is an understatement. Their considerable experience and attention to detail is so evident throughout. Our father (the king pin to our lives) had passed away giving us the need to totally rethink our living situation to give the much needed support to our Mother. To say this was an emotional time is an understatement but we were aware huge changes had to be carried out to our property to enable us to give the support to our Mother and yet still allow us all a degree of privacy. Initially Dean throughly discussed our needs/wishes with us all, making suggestions that we had not even thought about, not necessarily adding huge expense BUT certainly adding HUGE benefits to the way we use our home. They were extremely considerate to our feelings in the way they approached all aspects of the project. They showed a huge amount of compassion to us all and especially to our Mother. We were all only too aware that the considerable work to be undertaken would be disruptive to our lives and also cause some disturbance to our neighbours. However we were all pleasantly surprised by the way the project was undertaken by DCS Services to the point where we and our neighbours were warned prior to each stage of the disruptions expected the following day. Everything has been completed on budget, well within the expected time frame and the finished project is just what we dreamed of and more - WE ARE DELIGHTED. We have found DCS Services with their experienced dedicated work force, to be professional, competent and most importantly considerate and respectful. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

DCS have recently reworked our shower room, and it was not without its difficulties. We had a drain problem and there was not a straight wall in the small room. Dean, Dan and Harry took on this challenge with great expertise, patience and good humour, we cannot praise them enough. All the associated trades ie plasterer, drain expert, electrician and tiler were also very experienced and did a great job. It was a pleasure to have them all working in our home. We are absolutely delighted with the end result. To find trustworthy and honest tradesmen these days is not always so easy and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

John & Julie Ruppert, Leigh-on-Sea Essex ()

All work carried out was to a high standard by reliable tradesmen. Very pleased overall and would recommend to others.

Kevin Menzies, Leigh-on-Sea Essex ()

We have benefited from high quality project management, helpful informed professional advice on best suppliers and ranges and a quality of workmanship from a team that could not be improved. It is encouraging to find craftsmen who are more interested in the final quality of their work than getting the job done s quickly and cheaply as possible. Each person from this company that we have had any dealing with feels like a new friend - they could not be more genuine or professional in their work. I unhesitatingly recommend them for projects of any size in the complete confidence that you will be fully satisfied with their work.

Dean and all of his tradesmen were prompt, neat and courteous. They had an eye for detail meaning that the end finish was perfect from the carpentry to the wall finishing. They were happy to explain exactly what was going on and nothing was ever too much trouble. By the time they had completed our garage conversion to a utility room and second reception room they were more like friends than tradesmen and we were sad to see them go.

Matthew Phipps, Southend ()

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 & Mrs Worrall, Rayleigh ()

It's always difficult to decide on a builder when you are contemplating carrying out major works in this instance internal wall removal to allow for the installation of a kitchen/diner. We finally settled on DCS Services having read previous reviews and cannot praise Dean and his team too highly for the work carried out. Throughout the works Dean was always on hand or available to discuss alterations to the schedule or works as well as dealing directly with the Council regarding building authorisations and as necessary adjusting his team to ensure the minimum of delays. We couldn't have wished for a more friendly and professional crew, they simply got on with the work arriving promptly every morning and not leaving until they felt work required for that day had been completed. I would certainly recommend Dean and the boys and should the need arise have no qualms whatsoever in using their services again in the future.

Alan Simpson, Hockley ()

We are extremely happy with the work DCS did for us (2 x new bathrooms, kitchen, floors, painting,chimneys and various structural work). They were polite, tidy and thoughtful on site, and finished the job in good time. We were always kept up to date and they were always available if we had any questions. We've never used builders before but we felt very comfortable in discussions with them and they gave honest advice. They also went beyond the call of duty many times. We would recommend to anyone and we have sung their praises to anyone that will listen!

Meghan Mansfield, Leigh On Sea ()

We started out with a relatively small project but the overall quality of the team & the end result led us to give all our outstanding refurbishment projects to DCS Builders.

DCS Services is a fantastic firm. Friendly, helpful and informative. I have had passers by stop me in the street telling me how amazing my house now looks. I would recommend DCS Services 100%
