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.

Quality work and timely delivery
Customer Service
I have a large Victorian house and Direct Maintenance Contractors (DMC) removed my existing fascias, gutters and down pipes, replacing with new including boxing out to eaves and installing soffits. In addition, DCM painted existing external windows, french doors and porch and undertook some minor repair work to replace missing clay tiles. All work was undertaken to a very high standard, completed to programme and to agreed budgets. Any minor snagging issues were addressed immediately. Martin takes personal responsibility for delivering a high quality service and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending DMC.

Kitchen transformation
Customer Service
I was delighted by a kitchen installation done by Martin and Direct Maintenance Contractors using a design and units supplied by IKEA. This involved de facto project managing as I was in London - Martin and his team began work on the exact day he had promised, proved themselves trustworthy, reliable and hard-working, keeping me in the loop with what was happening as the job progressed and finishing only a day or two later than scheduled. The small space is completely transformed, the quality of workmanship very good. Prices charged were exactly as quoted - not cheap but good value for a quality job. If I have one quibble it would be the payment system. I would have been happy to put down a deposit though none was requested, but when I was sent an invoice half way through the job, payment was required immediately rather than within the usual 30 days. I would also have preferred to pay by credit card as Which? in fact recommends though I believe some of the protection gained by this is replicated by the Trusted Trader scheme. Overall though a big thank you to Martin and his guys for a great job, I'd be happy to work with them again and plan to.

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.
