This will give you a simple flavour of the projects we have worked on and an idea of what our customers think about the standard and quality of finish. Please remember some of these projects were completed before we invited our customers to comment or we have already carried out previous works and they have given a favourable review for other projects we have completed for them.

Kingswood, Maidstone - Extension
We demolished an existing conservatory, removed foliage along the side of the building as you can see in Before Image 4. An extension was construted that wrapped the rear and side of the building and a conservatory roof in the middle to allow extra light. This was a very large addition the the property. We also installed a downstairs shower room and external paving around the extension.
Eastwood Rd North - Summer House
Here we built a summer house for the client, wrapped in Hardi Plank with double glazed windows, plenty of insulation keeping the building warm in the winter along with underfloor heating. A very beautiful looking summer house that we enjoyed building along with returfing and new fence panels to refresh the look of the garden. We were asked to build this for the client as a result of previous work done.
Southchurch - Shaftesbury Avenue
Mr & Mrs. Lewis - "Thank you DCS for a Job very well done. The finished product makes the upheaval of the first two weeks seem a very distant memory. We are delighted with the result. Thanks again for your support throughout the project. Nelson & Sheila Lewis." Description - We were invited initially to carry out a tiny refurbishment for this lovely couple, once inside and involved the project escalated when we revealed the huge potential of the property if the budget was increased. We uncovered all sorts of damp issues and had to deal with the insurers and their loss adjusters. The end result is a fantastic room with an additional shower room for the house guests, and a lovely south facing conservatory which is now enjoyed all year round.
Rawreth - Downhall Park Way
Mr & Mrs. Smart - Have been very happy with the work and would not hesitate in recommending DCS again. Any problems have been dealt with immediately and have had excellent communication with Dean, making the whole process run very smoothly." Description - We completed this project in the main within two weeks whilst the family were away in Egypt on their holiday. A first floor extension and garage conversion to allow room for an office, re fitting a bathroom and en suite. This family were very satisfied with the end result and so were we.
Thorpe Bay - Marcus Chase
A large family come morning room extension was our remit for this, we want to enjoy the garden was the main criteria for us from this older couple. Carried out within six weeks and included a patio area to compliment the completed extension
This was one of our first projects when we were asked by our accountant to help out as his original builder had let them down. A first floor extension to compliment the house with en suite bedroom. We think the finishing detail really does blend in well with the original section of the house
Eastwood - Rayleigh Downs Road
JANUARY 2009 - MR & MRS BEATTIE - "Looking to commission a builder and have works on your home can be a stressful process, with Dean Dalton of DCS we found a honest, professional and courteous man, who's personal and work ethic is reflected in his team, and other tradesmen brought in as our works required. We requested a seemingly simple extension to our 1920s built bungalow, but during the work, found significant water damage to the foundations of the house. At all times Dean kept us appraised of developments, showing us problems then sharing options and solutions in lay terms. Dean acted as our voice with our insurance company, architect and local authority, using his influence and contacts to good effect. This was invaluable, as the consequent overrun of the building works coincided with the early birth of our son! Dean was then very flexible with timing, us having an infant in the house and the builders in, asking us when we would like work undertaken, and fitting his other commitments around us - a very great help indeed. Our home is sound now, the bathroom and en-suite are both fantastic, plus the extension looks like it has always been there. Would we use Deans services again? Without question. I am glad we know a builder we trust and have also recommended him both our parents, and some friends. Mike and Claire, Rayleigh." SEPTEMBER 2009 - MR & MRS BEATTIE - "Worked around our child birth schedules, twice. This is the second time we have used DCS for extensions to our property, we gave glowing feedback first time around. With the 2nd extension to the kitchen Dean worked around pregnancy and price, we were given a lot of design ideas and thoughts which have helped us get the perfect use of our new space. We are very satisfied. If I had more money, I would get you back again tomorrow, Cheers Dean." Description - This was a lovely job to work on in the middle of summer, we think the project worked out well and once again you cannot see there has been any extending of the property, always a sign of good quality building work. We have subsequently completed further projects for this client, and also carried out extra works whilst we were building the extension which involved a huge amount of remedial work due to fungus groing under the floor. When you view some of the pictures its hard to believe the property was only 10 years old! Bad building practice had caused serious rot problems within a very short period of time, the humidity levels were off the scale when we started to investigate under the floor why there was a huge amount of fungus and mould growth. 1 year later after our remedial works another test for humidity levels revealed a clean bill of health. A truly difficult one to trace and source the problem however another satisfied customer who has recommended our service to their family and friends.
Westcliff - Fairmead Avenue
Mr & Mrs. Pentecost - "Dean and his team did a great job in providing us with a new garage, driveway and decking area. Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional and ensured that the project was as stress free as possible. Thanks again." This project involved building a garage to the side of the property which would compliment the facia of the existing building. We also carried out a complete re-decoration of the exterior of the house and laid a new driveway and cedar wood decking area to the rear garden. Our client arranged for some planting and landscaping to finish of the rear garden. The client was delighted with the result comment.
Benfleet - Netherfield
Mr & Mrs. Sasse - "I have been consistently delighted by the quality and delivery of service and would not hesitate to recommend this company." Client asked for us to be involved in building an extension which would effectively double the size of the ground floor footprint of the property, they already had their vision and ideas, we simply came in and worked from their drawing, we have subsequently carried out further internal works on their behalf.
