  • Oak Floor

    10Verified Review

    Nick and his team returned to install some lovely oak flooring in our house, they did an excellent job once again. Given the challenges of our old wonky Victorian house, they ply lined the floorboards, then skilfully leveled the floors and glued down the new solid oak flooring. This isn't our first time working with Nick and the guys, and as always, they were punctual and delightful to work with.

  • Sound proofing in basement flat bedroom

    9Verified Review

    Nick was a pleasure to deal with and the soundproofing has made an enormous difference to the level of sound we can hear from above. They made an effort to fit us in before a hard deadline on our side, and the lads that did the work were polite and tidy. The only negative was that they missed a day half way through the work - this was a minor inconvenience though. Will definitely be using them again when we need the other rooms doing.

  • Internal and external work to a wall: Repairing, preparing, plastering, painting and removing


    Nick&his crew have been terrific throughout our project. The standard of work has been excellent and they showed consideration while working. They communicate swiftly and clearly and are willing to talk through problems that crop up and offer general advice without making us feel silly for not having the same depth of knowledge as them. They took the time to understand our project and keep us updated throughout. They’ve been flexible and understanding as we navigated around the changing restrictions or weather and always kept us updated. It’s been a really positive experience - highly recommended!

  • New ceiling in bedroom and making good walls after electrician

    10Verified Review

    A very professional team of people and so pleasant to deal with. They did the job with very little notice and it was done to an excellent standard. They were also so neat and tidy.

  • 16m roof valley gutter serviced, adjacent copings covered with GRP fibre glass protection + general 'servicing' of adjacent pitched and tiled roof.

    10Verified Review

    DBS were originally contracted to replace an existing lead lined valley gutter as we believed that it was leaking and needed replacement. They found that the valley gutter itself was entirely competent but that the adjacent copings needed a GRP fibreglass covering, as they were in poor condition. They then LOWERED their quote voluntarily and attended to all the work that actually needed doing. Superb communication and service throughout. I CANNOT fault these guys at all, perticularly given that we were commissioning this work remotely and that there are SO many charlatans out there these days.

Their Knowledge and attention to the detail has been invaluable. Very pleased with the standard of work, the site is kept tidy and they have kept me informed. Great result so far, highly recommended.
