UPVC window replacement.
Darren was punctual, polite, friendly and conscientious at all times. His work was of a high standard and was carried out professionally with minimal disruption and mess. A minor issue with frosted glass was quickly resolved, without any hassle. I am very happy with the work carried out and will certainly use him again. I would highly recommend DLC Home Improvements! Not sure I could say the same for the guy he recommended to do our roofline and fascias etc though.
