We first used trader for a patio and brick drive in May 2013. We were very pleased indeed and remain as happy now as we were when the work was done. Since that time we have employed him to repair two roofing problems which despite being very busy, he fitted in a temporary "hold" until he could get back to complete the work. He did that without fuss or mess and with considerable care for us and our needs. We gave recommended trader to a number of family members and friends. It is true that he is very busy but everyone we have referred him to and has told us how happy they are with his service, prices and quality of work. We recommend him and will ask him to quote for more work later this year.

I have just used DT Contracting for the fourth time on my house. From the very first contact, Dave Terry, the owner, has displayed complete professionalism. We had seen the high quality of his work from a full renovation that he had just completed on a neighbour’s house and since that time we have had them make structural repairs, renew all our external doors and windows and most recently, undertake the complete renovation of two bathrooms and a cloakroom. Their support in the design and planning stage proved invaluable in coming to the best design and this support, combined with their determination to achieve the highest build quality through their own work and that of their sub contractors has made all the projects truly transformational jobs. In part this is because they only supply and use quality materials and only use equally professional sub contractors where necessary, including architectural support. Dave Terry's project management is impressive - where he expediently takes on all the issues relating to the project and effectively does the customer's worrying for them. I have no hesitation in recommending DT Contracting for any building work - up to and including major construction and new build.

Ray and his team removed some flower beds, widened my drive and finished it in shingle. He was very thorough and I'm very happy with the results.

Greg is superb! A neighbour damaged a concrete fence post and broke the tile crease on the top of a thick brick wall pillar. I telephoned Greg who came the next day to assess the damage, gave a verbal quote and emailed a written one for the same amount the next day. Greg was abroad on holiday when I phoned him to ask him to go ahead. He returned home on Wednesday and turned up on Thursday morning to do the work. He was, throughout, very clean, friendly, willing to please, very knowledgeable, showed a lot of consideration of our property and our requirements and finished the job the same day, cleaning up completely after him. His quote for the job was really competitive (a previous quote was for the fence post only as the firm did not do brick work and was, for that bit only, much more than Greg asked for the whole job! He is very highly recommended and I will be very definitely using him again if ever the need arises.

Jim repaired and improved my garden wall and the wall around a raised bed. He also did some repairs to the brickwork of the house and patio and fitted a new garden gate. The price was very reasonable. I was delighted with his work.

I first saw Dave repairing a neighbours brick wall. He was doing a good job. I asked him to quote to lay a 7m decorative path in my garden. His quote was far cheaper than previous quotes. He communicated well and completed the work to time and cost and to a high standard. I would definitely use him again for general building work.

Jim built two raised beds in our back garden. He took the time to bring round brick samples beforehand and was on site early every morning. The job itself was completed to a high standard, and our garden and patio were left spotless. A very conscientious and hard worker, who we would definitely recommend.

We needed some remedial work on our drive after the recent storms and chose James as his reviews were good. James gave us a very reasonable price, carried out the work promptly and very professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

As representative of my local church (which I hope may be classified as paying customer!) commissioned trader to carry out repairs to the roof. This is not a historic building but very conventional tiled roof dating from 1970s. Keen price, appropriate care to protect premises from weather while tiling removed and careful work with consideration for building users.
