Our testimonials

Dean and his gang done a fantastic job on our rear extension. Very courteous and friendly and full of ideas. Would recommend them to anyone and in fact using them again to plaster rear wall

Kevin Bishop, HOCKLEY ()

We had a complete renovation of our upstairs bedrooms which also included an extension and installation of a bathroom. We contacted Dean straight away he takes what you want to do and offers another perspective you not have thought of. Our first consultation Dean gave us a timescale of 3 months and the work was carried out in the time frame, all the contractors Dean organised where punctual professional and extremely reliable, Scaffolding, Plumbers, Tilers, Plasterers etc. Dean kept in constant contact with us including the odd day he was off site always making sure everything ran smoothly and nothing was missed. The bedrooms and bathroom where done to a high quality finish. Dean does not just leave you when the job is finished as we had a couple of small adjustments to be done a few months later which he did. We would highly recommend Dean and his crew they are very reliable and professional builders they have done work for us in the past and will call on Dean for any work to be done in the future.

Dean Dalton & his team (DCS SERVICES) have undertaken several large domestic projects for us at our home over a couple of years. His tradesmen have always been very professional, polite,tidy and pleasant people. Everyone involved is excellent at their own trade and are always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure complete satisfaction. The latest job they have been involved in is a complete refurbishment of an upstairs roof over a large extension at the rear of our property. An excellent job! I have no hesitation in recommending DCS services to carry out any task. They really are a first class business looked over by Dean Dalton himself who is always ready to discuss any part of the project at any time.

Dean arranged the manufacture and installation of a matched pair of bespoke Hardwood Driveway gates. The finished product is impeccable and has gained a lot of admiration and interest from friends relatives and general house callers with several stating they would like a similar product made for them. The standard of workmanship cannot be faulted, the team of workman have been a pleasure to have around they are always considerate and very courteous, I would highly recommend this company to anyone that wants a quality job and a finished product to be proud of that enhances your home.

Fantastic job by a great team ! – went with Dean and DCS for my garage conversion after taking a look at another garage conversion they had done, that was done to a high standard with clients being very complimentary about the job and the service. Dean and the team started the job when they said they would, were always there when they said they would be, with no gaps of days on end during the project with nobody about. Dean was very knowledgeable and helpful with advice and suggestions throughout the build, and appraised me of building regulations etc, so I was confident that the price we agreed, barring any completely uncontrollable issues, would be the final price, which it was. The team always cleared up and left things tidy and kept us informed with progress and next steps etc. All in all couldn’t be happier with our new found space which is much more useful that the junk dumping ground my garage had become !, new room now being used as a bedroom for my son who moved back in after finishing University. Would not hesitate to recommend DCS for any building work that anybody have.

Dean was fantastic - came round to measure up and quote for a bespoke internal bifold door, got the quote to us quickly, and started (and finished!) the following week. The doors look absolutely brilliant and were exactly what we’d hoped for. Dean and Rob completed the job to a very high standard and kept everything tidy throughout and did a full clean up at the end of the job. Thanks so much - we are delighted with our doors! Would definitely recommend ??

Dean and his colleague made a wonderful job of replacing the stop cock and fitting a switch to the cupboard under the sink, making turning the water off so simple. Would not hesitate to use him again.

Dean & his very able assistant Dave arrived when they said they would,made a very good job putting the curtain pole up,and when they had finished the job you wouldn't have known they had been there!Asking them to do the job is the best decision we have made for a long time.Delightful people & we recommend them.They even asked if we needed any help hanging the curtains!

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.

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.
