Amazing and really helpful!
Customer Service
This is the 3rd time Martin and his team have done work for us. The most recent work completed involved re-doing all the flooring in the house, removing a wall in the utility room (including plastering etc) and updating the locks/handles on all the doors and windows. The work completed was to a great standard and we are pleased with the end result. A huge thank you to Martin and his team for everything they did for us! The team is extremely friendly and approachable. The work was really well done and required coordination with the gas and electric men who also had to complete work in the house. Martin handled the end to end coordination and it was extremely smooth.

Conservatory removal and new patio
Customer Service
Direct Maintenance did an amazing job removing on old conservatory and replacing it with a lovely patio for us. When Martin visited to take details for the quote, we explained what we were after, he listened carefully and helped offer suggestions. The quote we received then outlined the work in great detail which we found really helpful. When the work was being carried out the team were very reliable and arrived punctually every morning. The team were very hardworking and worked at a good pace. Everyone in the team was friendly and approachable. Communication was excellent and very prompt. Martin and the team were open to listening to any concerns we had and were happy to adapt and be flexible to accommodate any changes we requested. We highly recommend using Direct Maintenance and have already put in a request to have more work done by them.

Excellent service - garage conversion
Customer Service
We used this building company to refurbish an old garage into a watertight workshop with power and light. Martin provided excellent service throughout and was very good at keeping us informed.

Kitchen installation (Ikea Faktum), new waste, skirting & boxing in
Customer Service
I chose this company because Martin took time to discuss my requirements on his visit & subsequent emails & his quotation was comparable with others & clear on what was & wasn't included in price (e.g. pre-oiling of worktop). Martin and his team of Tom & Mike arrived early each morning & set to work straight away. They were very approachable to discuss the work & didn't grumble about the very small work space & very uneven floor that made every measurement critical. Everything fitted perfectly. They were extremely accommodating, helpful & full of useful advice & guidance. It was great that the team always stopped to ask when there was any feature that required a cosmetic or practical choice, took notice of & remembered any requests & pointed out any issues or features (e.g. my choice of door handle location/size might touch/knock on opening). It's clear they take pride in their work & hold themselves to high work & customer standards. Martin visited every day to check the work, help out & discuss any issues (one being a cosmetic solution to a cabinet gap caused by an undersized fan). They happily accommodated specific requests that required extra thought, i.e. cabinets on one wall stepped out to provide pipework space & deeper worktop, cabinets on other side fitted to allow removal when access required, boxing in leaving space for future fridge-freezer etc. They even made an upstand I'd forgotten to buy from the worktop excess. Overall a reliable, trustworthy & skilled team.

Reliable and reasonable
Customer Service
Martin was prompt to respond to enquiries and gave us a reasonable estimate. He took time to discuss a number of possible causes of the leak in our roof and to allow for there being more or less work that might be needed. They did a very thorough investigation and managed to solve the problem. He was great at keeping us up to date with any delays and the work was completed very efficiently in spite of all the problems associated with Covid and atrocious winter weather. We would not hesitate to use the firm again.

Several building jobs completed to a high standard
Customer Service
This is the second time we have employed Martin. This time to complete a first story extension, rebuild the chimney and to strip and render the back of the house. All the work was completed to a high standard. Martin was always on hand to talk and give sound advice on any queries, and worked with us at all times. He is organised, professional and honest. Always advised on what to expect for the forthcoming week in terms of the progress of the build. Also he thinks of everything e.g. the extension build was during the summer. Martin asked the scaffolders to avoid the patio doors to enable us to continue to use them through the build. I would not have thought of this and it made a big difference. Martin and his team work hard, polite and considerate, and tidied up at the end of every day. Excellent value for money and he has a lovely dog too!

Roof repairs to a high standard
Customer Service
Martin is someone who identifies himself with the interests of his customers. My wife and I have been very fortunate in finding Martin to repair two of our roofs. Needless to say the work he did was on time and done with great care. We found Martin to be very co-operative with all our wishes. He is punctual, hard-working and we would recommend him.

Very good work
Customer Service
Martin did a very good job in rebuilding and making safe a stone pier outside the front of our house. I am very pleased with the result. I have used Martin on a number of jobs during the last 18 months or so. I have found him to be approachable, friendly and reliable. His work is of a very high standard.

Whole house renovation, completed to a high standard.
Customer Service
Martin and his team have done an amazing job with our renovation. After having problems with our previous builders, he had a big task on his hands, not just finishing a whole house renovation but also rectifying shoddy work from the previous builder. He provided us with a very detailed quote; due to our tight budget he sat down with us and discussed ways we could save money to get the job done without cutting corners. He was upfront with us about any additional costs as and when they arose. Where we were unsure about details regarding finishes, the advice given always turned out to be spot on. We will definitely be using him again for more work in the future. We cannot recommend him more highly.

Customer Service
Martin and his team completed a full bathroom renovation. Martin kept me updated throughout and was always open to any questions I had. The team worked efficiently and kept the place as clean as they could which was amazing. We were never in the house because of work being so busy but Martin was happy to communicate via text/emails and calls. We trusted them with our house and they were respectful. Martin helped clear the old bathroom out and dealt with it for us which was great as we weren't sure where to dispose of everything. Martin also did some work in our kitchen and came back to fix a leak that was taking place in the bathroom - he immediately fixed it with no issues. I would definitely recommend them to do any work to your house. Thank you Martin & team for the great work you did!
