  • Roof/ceiling work and Velux Window replacement


    D and P Home Improvement specialists were great from the start - Highly recommend. Excellent communication arranging initial appointment, arrived on time, took measurements and provided a quote quickly. Started work when they said they would. Always kept neat and tidy. Friendly service with regular progress updates. Very happy with their standards.

  • Plastering

    10Verified Review

    D and P ensured our entire property (existing and new extensions) was replastered prior to decoration. This was done at a pretty rapid pace. During this process we also made a few minor alterations to our internal room configurations (e.G. Moving one bedroom wall to increase the size of our landing area) which D and P were able to accommodate around the plastering. Nothing was ever an insurmountable problem and they were always able to provide helpful and insightful ideas. The plastering was done to a very high standard - really can't fault it!

  • First fix electrics and plumbing

    10Verified Review

    D and P arranged for an expert electrician and central heating team to install in our new back room underfloor heating (covering 65 sqm), a brand new pressurised system boiler and the complete rewiring of the existing and extended property. All of the contractors were friendly, willing to spend their time explaining in detail what was being done and the choices to be made. Very happy with the works.

  • Completion of knockout and steel works

    10Verified Review

    Our extension was relatively large for a residential home (double side, double back, and additional single storey back) requiring multiple steels up to 1 ton in weight. D&P procured, delivered, and installed all the required steels in a professional and efficient manner. These were all signed off by the building inspector and work continued at pace on the rest of the extension.

  • Rear Pitchroof

    10Verified Review

    As part of our extension work D&P have constructed the roof structure at the back of our property. I am really happy with the end result and as the work finished early it allowed the tiling to commence nearly a week earlier than originally planned, which was a nice bonus.

  • Brickwork for extension (rear)

    10Verified Review

    Dean and Pete have completed the brickwork on the rear of our property (a double back extension and further single back extension) in what must be record time. It is a substantial new structure on the back of our property and was delivered to a high quality and ahead of schedule. Really impressive!

We realise how difficult it is for you to select a builder to carry out your proposed extension work. Bargains, as you know, are not available in the building trade without risking a disaster, but value for money is what you get when you trade with a registered company with honesty, such as is the case with us.
