Quality repointing of chimney stack
Customer Service
DMC repointed a chimney stack. They were prompt in providing a quotation and were able to start the work reasonably quickly. I was kept well informed about progress and the work was completed efficiently and on budget. Only time (and winter weather) will show whether the repointing resolves the damp penetration problem but I have confidence in the quality of their work.

House Maintenance
Customer Service
Martin and his team carried out various home maintenance work for us including roof tile replacements, render repairs, gulley benching repair, kitchen tile floor repair, rejuvenated our hardwood draining board and painting several rooms, all to a very high standard. Throughout the process from quote to completion we were kept informed at all stages, and we are extremely pleased with the work done by Martin, Tom, Michael and Millie. They arrived promptly each day and tidied up at the end. We would have no hesitation in recommending DMC and would happily use them again.

Martin and his team helped us replace a derelict Victorian lean-to with a new extension. They carried out demolition of the collapsing lean-to, and built a new flat-roof extension that included French windows, a bathroom, and an area for our washing machine and tumble dryer. They were professional, knowledgeable, clean, and open, with good communication throughout the works, delivering a high quality build.

Thanks for your kind words it was a pleasure to build the extension even though it was disruptive for you while we carried out the works
Experienced builders with an excellent standard of work
Customer Service
We needed a lintel replacing in the center of our home due to excessive deflection. Martin and his team were able to carry out the work quickly, cleanly and with minimal disruption for such a big job. Scaffold was erected, the ceilings were lifted and everything was handled with extreme care. While things were quick, nothing was rushed. We are extremely happty with the results and would use Direct Maintenance Contractors again happily (and indeed, we already have).

Hi I’m glad you’re happy with the finish. You now have floors that are level
Friendly and efficient
Customer Service
I engaged DMC to update my lounge. Right from the onset Martin was helpful and friendly explaining clearly what needed to be done to achieve the result I was seeking. The costings were clear and the work was done to a high standard and everything was left tidy. One important consideration for me was that Martin and his workers were dog friendly and were careful when they needed to access the outside tap to always close the side gate. Given by the number of cases of missing dogs where they disappeared when builders left the gates open, this was a very important plus for me.

Boarding out the Attic
Customer Service
I contacted Martin a few months ago regarding having the attic boarded out. He came, assessed the job and issued an estimate of the cost. I was then contacted at a later date with a commencement date. This started on 3rd Jan 2024. Tom and Michael ( aka "Tom and Jerry") were the tradesmen, accompanied at a later date by their female apprentice Millie. What can you say? Their workmanship exemplary, very friendly, worked full days, tidied up after themselves, and the result a marvellous boarded out attic along with a fitted wooden step ladder. I would thoroughly recommend this company. I'm sure that I will be calling upon this company for any future work at my property Total A TEAM!!

Kitchen installation
Customer Service
Martin and his team completed a major project in my home which involved removing the old kitchen, knocking down internal walls to create an open-plan space, breaking up the existing floor, installing insulation, new electricals and plumbing and so on. Martin kept me fully informed about the progress of the work and also gave me helpful advice on the layout of the room. He and his team then installed a completely new fitted kitchen including all appliances, supplied by Howdens. The standard of their workmanship was faultless and some inevitable hitches which came up along the way were dealt with promptly and effectively. The project started on schedule and the team turned up reliably every day. The end result is a beautiful new kitchen that I'm very pleased with and I wouldn't hesitate to strongly recommend this company to anyone considering similar work.

A very professional job
Customer Service
We appointed Martin and his team at Direct Maintenance Contractors in April 2023 to undertake repairs to a summerhouse completed three years previously by another company who were a total nightmare. Work included replacing a substandard timber floor which was almost totally rotten and fixing the bifold doors which had been incorrectly installed and were letting water into the summerhouse. From the outset Martin instilled confidence and was clear in his diagnosis of the problem and the solution (unlike other contractors we sought quotes from). His quotation was not the cheapest but was far from being the most expensive. He and his men started work on time, undertook a very professional job and completed slightly ahead of schedule. They were all courteous, tidy and cleared up after themselves. We were very pleased with the end result and would not hesitate to use Direct Maintenance Contractors again or to recommend them to others.

Refurbishment of en-suite
Customer Service
Martin gave a detailed quote and his estimated start date was met. Each day they arrived on time and they kept us updated with progress. Any changes required were agreed and a detailed quote update was given. Martin supervised the job throughout and Tom and Michael were very helpful and pleasant. They returned promptly to investigate any snag. Payment was only required after completion of the work. It was worth the cost for a reliable job.

Efficient service to a high standard
Customer Service
Martin and his team recently dealt with some difficult problems on my conservatory very quickly and effectively. The work was done to a high standard, and I was very satisfied. I will certainly contact him again for any further building work.
