House Renovation

Verified Review

We cannot recommend Darren and Stewart enough, they have transformed our house. We had considered a few builders, however we definitely made the best decision. Darren and Stewart were always professional, friendly, fair, transparent and communication was fantastic. We had the downstairs of our house reconfigured, wall knocked down, new kitchen installed, and everything else we could think of! We completely trusted Darren and Stewart as they clearly have so much experience, they were always able to provide advice if we were unsure and kept us up to date. The quality and finish were beyond our expectations.

Complete kitchen refurbishment and flooring

Verified Review

On the first day, Stewart and Darren gutted our 80s kitchen, efficient electricians Jordan and Leon measured up and next day plasterer was in; it was a very swift start. Stewart worked hard every day, arriving early each morning to fit cabinets and soon became a friendly addition to the household. He listened to our requests and patiently incorporated them into the build. We are absolutely delighted with the end result of our modern shaker kitchen and flooring, just loving all the pull out drawers! So great to have finished for Christmas. Thank you so much to the whole team Enjoy your hols!

The moment we met Darren we were very confortable . His explanations were very easy to understand and clear . The quote arrived super fast . After a few more meetings we agreed on a start date . They started on time , were there everyday as promised and kept in touch when needed. There was a few issues with the work which was explained and dealt with in a very professional manner . They have a great team of all trades and they dealt with managing it all with very few level of stress . They are very clean , conscientious and super tidy . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone .

Remove an internal wall to extend kitchen space into a section of the garage.

Verified Review

Darren and Stewart did an excellent job. They were courteous, hard working, very punctual and professional. During discussions they extended the scope to also reboard and plaster the ceiling too. Very happy with their craftsmanship and would certainly recommend.

Stopping stairs from creaking before recarpeting

Verified Review

I was let down by a previous carpenter and Darren came to my aid. He fitted me in as soon as he could. He kept in touch re times etc and his quote was very reasonable and was sent quickly. He arrived on time and was very curtious and friendly. He did an excellant job and made sure all the steps were done not just the ones creaking. He was tidy and left no mess and informed me what he had done when finished. I would highly recommend D&S Developments.
