Extension and garage conversion

Verified Review

The work has not been completed and the work that has been done has not been completed to a satisfactory standard. I am still trying to get the work done to a standard to allow me to get my completion certificate. Mr Kerr has stopped communicating with me so I have been left to rectify all the ongoing issues myself by employing other trades people. I would not recommend using this company. Some images of my house have been used here without my permission. They are inaccurately listed as part of an ongoing project. That is not true.

I am extremely disappointed to somewhat surprised re a review on a project two years to date As aware this particular period was unprecedented in all our life’s at this time . Re project we are more than proud at our performance in a time inflation record high . Not witnessed before Re looking after budgets I changed design to stone at no extra pass cost Kitchen discounts I let that offer you opportunity and solid worktops etc Beautiful lantern aluminum byfold doors all trying to sustain unrealistic budgets. Hindsight to stop but yo my detriment and loss I squeezed the well dry Assisting with wardrobes beds etc all above course So it certainly does not represent your side And ultimately we pass through you as the owner rightly so has the prize We have amazing pictures of the works and ultimately this would not be case if your opinion stands up I’m very disappointed however we all have opinions. And it is not a crime to run short of monies especially at this particular period of worldwide disruption


Single story extension

Verified Review

Highly recommended! Excellent work carried out. Gary came when arranged to assess the job, I received his quote within a week. He was keen to do a good job and seemed to enjoy his work. He was always lovely and polite as was the rest of the team. He has created my vision of an extra large open plan kitchen, dining, living area. He also created a new master bedroom with patio doors and a new en-suite. My house looks amazing and the work has been done to a really high standard. I will certainly use Gary and his team for any other jobs I might have in the future.

Two Storey Extension

Verified Review

Design Build Services recently completed a side extension to our terraced house in Kirkintilloch. The project went very smoothly through all stages and the costing and design done fitted our needs perfectly. Gary and his team were great to work with. His team are great people; friendly, helpful, very skilled, totally honest, and receptive to my requirements. Gary himself always answered the phone and visited the site almost every day. The work was completed on time and on budget. It was such a relief to work with a team who got things done, and did them well, I am so happy with the build.
