Just had a job completed by Diamond Paving Essex. Never used them before but they sounded very friendly and knowledgeable. Work completed by Adam. Kept me fully informed on products to be used and methods employed. Quote accepted and date fixed. Time of arrival pretty spot on especially as the job was in Maidstone Kent and he came from Bedford. Block Paving that was laid in 2000 and last cleaned (only) in 2015 Jet washed, re-sanded and sealed over 2 days. Now I've got a new looking drive. All left neat and tidy, even took the mud and dirt away in bags. At all times Adam was polite and courteous, especially as this was during the Covid 19 crisis. He even brought his own mask and sanitiser. Top job. Best trade call I could have made. Thank you Mark Krendel. Your company will certainly get recommended by this customer Before and after photos available if required Best regards.

Diamond Driveways renewed our rather tired patio. The work was completed to the agreed schedule and budget. From the outset we were impressed by the professionalism of the organization from planning the job, making suggestions as to the materials we were considering (which involved us changing our minds and achieving a better result!). The team on the project worked very hard from start to finish. they left us with a tidy site at the end of each day and completely cleaned up at the end. Communication with Paul and Dariusz worked very well throughout. We are very happy with the result and have had value for money delivered as promised.

Diamond Driveways have just completed the paving in the front of our house. They sourced used bricks to match what we had before, and Chris took great trouble in matching and making sure we were happy. The boys that laid the paving worked incredibly hard and were cheerful and did an amazing job. We would thoroughly recommend Diamond Driveways, and we would use them again.

Thank you so much to everybody @ Diamond Driveways!! We are so happy with the final result! From the moment Steven came to see us we knew we was in good hands. Steven was very professional and efficient in helping us design our dream driveway and delivered on his promises, whilst also being an absolute gent along the way. Dave and his team turned up on time every day and worked very very hard. They left no mess behind and were also very friendly and professional. The most refreshing thing about the whole experience is we felt that Steven, Alex, Dave and all of his team all genuinely cared about the result and clearly take immense pride in their work and delivering great results. We have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family! Many Thanks.

So very pleased with the work carried out by a lovely team of workers. Elliott is a very personable and knowledgeable young man, who kept us informed all the time about our job and Darius is very proud of his work with good reason. The team work very well together and kept the disruption to a minimum, cleaning up after themselves and leaving us feeling confident in their ability. Cannot praise them highly enough. Well done, Diamond. Aptly named.

Right from our first contact with Diamond Driveways we were impressed. Steven Lewis was our first point of contact and we immediately felt at ease. He listened to what we wanted and came up with a number of suggestions to improve our plan. He gave us a comprehensive list of the work and materials required and gave us a very reasonable quote for the job. Due to needing planning permission (a retaining wall was required to raise the floor level), we had to wait a few months to start the project but once it was started, again we have been impressed. Darius and his team have done a wonderful job! Although not always on site Darius was a regular visitor (as was Steven), checking his guys work and suggesting further alterations to enhance the final look. These changes did add to the original price but this was clearly communicated and agreed with us. It did take a few days longer than originally planned but I have to say it was well worth it!

This company is truly amazing, I have never had such a personal service! My new patio was completed in 6 days which I never though would of been possible! When I first made contact Steve came round to my house a few days later and spent an hour with me designing my patio. He gave great advice and knew what he was talking about, he even said my original idea was far too big! I had to wait for the work to start but trust me these guys are worth the wait! Darius and the lads dug up (all kinds of stuff including a suitcase) and gave me a new patio in 6 days, considering the size of the area I didn't think it would be been possible. Darius and the lads were clean and tidy and worked non stop to get the job done. They arrived at 7:45 each morning to start work at 8, which I found very impressive as they had to cross the Dartford Crossing everyday! The patio itself ended up costing more than estimated, however I was always kept informed about this. I can not recommend these guys enough. Brilliant service!

Our initial contact was with Stephen who took the time to explain the various choices and options fully.

They worked efficiently, with a minimum of fuss and mess and cleared up meticulously at the end. They were unfailingly courteous and helpful and I have no hesitation to recommend this company.

Work included provision of aco drainage where required, kerb stones around all flowerbeds and a single row of block paving around the perimeter of the whole area. All work was done to a high specification and standard. Any small changes requested were acted upon without any fuss.

I can't say enough good things about Diamond. Let's start with Steve, their Director. While other people who gave quotes were fairly disinterested and went through the motions, Steve was attentive and knowledgeable. He is also incredibly personable, goes the extra mile as well as being clearly passionate about his work and what the company does. We were also supplied with lots of references which we were free to go and look at. Ultimately, the proof is in the quality of workmanship which is superb. Our gardener has independently said that it's the highest quality workmanship he has ever seen on a driveway. The team worked hard, were tidy and polite and we're thrilled on all levels at the Diamond Driveways quality and service. Beautiful results - very highly recommended.

We have just had a resin bound driveway completed by Diamond and cannot recommend them highly enough. Elliot who came around to give us a quote was extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgable and showed us plenty of colour samples (which another company I had previously approached did not have). John, who project managed the job, and his team were absolutely fantastic. They all worked so hard, the organisation of arrival of materials and equipment was organised like clockwork and they left our cul-de-sac tidy every evening. To no surprise this team left us with a superb new driveway which is finished to the highest standard and we are so pleased with.

I had needed a new shared drive for over 20 years. When I finally got around to it recently, I wanted to make sure that I found a reliable firm to do a good job. Diamond Services didn’t do a good job, they did a GREAT job! I found everything to be perfect, from Elliot (who organised the quote and the details of the job) to Romanian John and his team of 5 guys who worked like stink to finish the job in 3 days rather than the 4 days they quoted for. Thanks guys for doing such a fantastic job for me! An added bonus was that they were 30% cheaper than the first firm that quoted me for the job. What a bargain! The 5 year guarantee also gives me peace of mind. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We have been wanting to do our drive for a very long time but were not convinced either by any of the people who quoted us or any of the work we saw locally. That was until Diamond Services did a drive for one of our neighbours - they were organised, fast, solid working and a fantastic final drive - so good we decided to copy it. Paul came to our home - discussed all the options to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted - and the best bit - the price was right for us! John and his team turned up punctually everyday, were polite, worked really hard, kept everything as tidy as possible bearing in mind all the old concrete had to be dug up and taken away - and when we threw a spanner into the works and told them they needed to finish a day earlier than we originally discussed they simply said okay, and doubled the team on the last day to get it done in time. No fuss, no argument - just over and above helpful attitude to accommodate our need. Totally thrilled with the finished drive and would most definitely recommend this company.

The whole team were polite, friendly, courteous - I really couldn't recommend these guys enough. Great Job!

We decided to use Diamond Services after reading the reviews and seeing pictures of their work. The front of our house needed a lot of ground work and the road we live on is a busy one, with no parking facilities. Diamond Services sent us a fabulous team of men who coped with our demanding location! They are top of their game and turned up on time every morning, worked through the day and left the workplace tidy every evening. Our pavement was hosed down each night before they left, an impressive touch. The speed with which they worked was incredible and as a result, we have a beautiful resin bound driveway and we are so thrilled with it. The men were helpful, professional and polite throughout. I cannot recommend Diamond Services highly enough, thank you to all for a wonderful experience and a great job done. Christine & Francis, Enfield

Diamond Services were excellent at every stage when turning our tired and aged front garden into smart off-street parking. Steven Lewis (Design Director) visited us promptly and gave great advice and style tips - even suggesting that the company transplant an established shrub that was too nice to lose. The workforce who came to do the physical graft were experienced, polite at all times and really hard working. The end result is excellent and has transformed the front of our property.

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING ! 100 sm of drives & paths completed and the finished article is simply breathtaking. This was a huge job as my house is curved & included triple drive & all pathways circling my house, with many angles and borders to consider. I also had 35 metres of raised curb bricks to circle my 5 large shrub beds. Jonathan Apple gave me an excellent price- plus unlike others who underestimated the volume of work, & correctly measured the complicated area, thus I was confident with the price. I also trusted the many reviews I had read confirming this company so booked my work. On the day a minute past 8am the boys & John the foreman arrived - Two solid days to dig out & remove all the old blocks and debris. As a retired Prosecution Solicitor & Crown Advocate, I am a nightmare to work for. I am incredibly picky & a control freak ! John completely reassured me & brought his second gang along for the laying of the paving for the next two days. These lads worked from 8am to gone 6pm & just never stopped ! They were the politest lads I've ever met. One night my garage springs decided to break & these lads would not go home & leave me on my own without making sure the garage closed - even though it wasn't their problem. Such service! I'm sure you will be able to recognise my drive/paths on the Diamond Services website to see just how fabulous they are or call Jonathan Apple as he always offers to show in person his past work to new clients. 100% recommend Diamond services
