Following an unfortunate leak from our ensuite wet room we had substantial damage not only to the room itself but also the lounge ceiling below. DCS were contacted and took on the job and have repaired our wet room and lounge ceiling to the highest standards. The job had many challenges and difficulties. We had many problems due to water leaking into the timbers for quite a while and causing damage to the joists . It is a small room adding to the task of fitting everything in to the space. Dean and his team took on this challenge with great expertise, patience and good humour, we cannot praise them enough. All the associated trades ie plasterer, plumber, electrician and tiler were also very experienced and did a great job. It was a pleasure to have them all working in our home at these very difficult times and always felt safe as they adhered to all the covid restrictions . We are absolutely delighted with the end result. To find trustworthy and honest builders these days is not always easy and it proves again that you cannot put a price on experienced knowledgable. tradesmen. We highly recommend Dean and his team and look forward to using their services again In the future.

We must thank Dean Dalton and his team for their damp report on and the damp survey you recently carried out in our Bungalow. . It was reassuring to know what has caused the damp problems, and helpful to understand what needed to be done and how to prioritise the work. We have been delighted with the speed with which DCS produced such a comprehensive damp report. The additional information, which explained the estimated cause of the wet and how it would have to be investigated, This was very reassuring for both of us given I was recovering from cancer surgery and chemotherapy.

The prompt attention immediately discovered the culprit was a fractured water pipe within the wall cavity separating the Bathroom Shower Unit and the adjacent bedroom. Once confirmation was established, their plumber repaired the leak in quick time and was very clean and tidy throughout his work. DCS Services left both the bathroom and bedroom in an excellent pristine condition for that we were most grateful.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending DCS Services to anyone wishing to appoint them.

An outstanding Building Contracting Company.

Finally, thank you very much.

We had our garage flooded several times when it has rained a lot. Contacted Dean who gave good advice and price to solve it. His men came on time and started work right away, did not stop until job was finished even though it was raining hard at times. I found the team very helpful and friendly. Would recommend DCS.

Dean Dalton and his friendly and helpful team have just carried out some work at my property to a high standard. My roof has been completely cleared of moss totally by hand using wire brushes and no harmful pressure washing; The roof was then sprayed with a fungicide wash to help with the prevention of moss and lychee growth in the future. I was kept informed throughout. Following this my gutter was replaced, on completion of the work any mess caused was cleared up. I am totally satisfied with a very good job done and will have no hesitation in recommending this company to others and will in future use them for any other building work I may need. Rita D.

Due to a change in circumstances I needed to convert my garage into an en-suite bedroom. Dean and his team worked long hours in testing conditions to produce a perfect annexe. Dean’s skill, expertise and knowledgeable advice has resulted in an exceptionally well built and well designed beautiful addition to my home. He not only designed and built but also provided all the extras that would have taken hours to research and buy. The site was kept tidy and clean throughout. The work was done quietly and with consideration to all, a fact that was much appreciated by neighbours. I recommend Dean and his team highly and look forward to continuing to use his services. In the future.

I am very pleased with the way Dean and his contractors went about their work, doing their very best not to cause me inconvenience. I had my garage converted into living quarters that involved complicated work in moving my power meters to the outside and creating a shower and toilet wet room. Dean was very helpful in getting additional items that I asked for – nothing was too difficult for him! I would unreservedly recommend him to anyone wishing to carry out major amendments to their home.

Very professional and a great help with the work we needed doing. Also completed various other jobs we asked to be done. Clean, tidy and attentive at all times.

Ben Sullivan, Rayleigh ()

From the quote to the final build, we couldn't have hoped for a more professional experience. When we had questions about build regulations and future work it all got taken into account and second opinions were gathered on our behalf. The final product is exactly what we wanted and we will definitely be coming back for future work.

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. Initially Dean throughly discusses our need/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. 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. EVERYONE was happy how it went

This is the 2nd time I've used DCS and again I cannot fault their workmanship nor their work ethics. I extremely pleased with my new floor. They are a cheerful and conscientious bunch and I would not hesitate to recommend them...I will certainly use them again I'm sure.

Sheila Dobitz, Southend on sea ()

Excellent quality of work, very punctual, very tidy and finished quicker than I expected. They also dealt with building control and ensured compliance with all required standards. Everyone who has seen the finished conversion has commented on how good it is. I have no hesitation in recommending DCS and intend to use Dean again for some other work in the near future.
