“DT Contracting undertook building work in our home in Essex. This involved the removal of the existing kitchen and bathroom, making structural alterations according to the architect’s drawings and installing a new fitted kitchen and new bathroom.”
When discussing the work, DT Contracting made sure they clearly understood our needs and made sure we were involved in all decisions.
The building work was completed to the highest standard within the agreed timescale and within budget. DT Contracting provided the necessary specialist builders, electricians, plumbers and roofers to undertake the essential work and supervised each one to make sure their work was up to DT Contracting’s standards. When problems arose (as they do when building) we were consulted and every issue was resolved to our complete satisfaction. Upon completion there were a couple of snagging items which were immediately rectified.
We have had many visitors to our home since the building work was finished and everyone has commented on how good our home looks. It appears as if an extension has been built, but all the work was within the original footprint of our home.
I have no hesitation in recommending DT Contracting for any building or maintenance work following our experience.

The kind of builder your looking for!
I used DT Contracting recently to perform a repair to a rear wall in my house that required ‘stitching’ with stainless steel rods. From the very first contact Dave Terry, the owner displayed complete professionalism.
We had seen the high quality of his work from a full renovation that he had just completed on a neighbour’s house. When he surveyed our job, he checked the requirements carefully, studied and interpreted our surveyors report and suggested practical solutions in order to respond with a detailed and itemised quote.
The combination of his reasonable and realistic quote and the complete confidence that we felt in him from seeing the way that he works made for an obvious decision to engage him for the repair. His expert and pragmatic advice was invaluable. When work started, as he progressed the job he discovered that some of the surveyors original requirements were not actually necessary and he took it upon himself to consult with the surveyor to agree what work was not actually needed.
The result was that he completed the job in one day and avoided a significant amount of unnecessary disruption. In addition he left saying that he would be amending his quote to take account of the reduced specification. His pragmatism on our behalf, his honesty and trustworthiness has saved us a significant amount of money compared to some of the quotes that we had received for the job.
We were so pleased the company that we have since used them to replace all our external doors and windows and we are planning more work.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending them for all types of construction work, renovation and repair. In my view, this is the just the kind of builder that everyone is looking for.
We engaged DT Contracting to carry out a major refurbishment of our house, including; side and first floor extensions, re-roofing, complete electrical re-wire, new central heating system, new fitted kitchen, new family bathroom, design and installation of a three en-suite bathrooms, new bedroom fitting, installation of a new staircase and re-decorating throughout. We also had a new patio area, block paving and rebuilt front wall.
DT Contracting’s team carried out the works in a professional and friendly manner – on time and on budget.
The work was carried out to the highest standard and my wife and I are delighted with the final result. We would have no hesitation in recommending DT Contracting to others who are considering having building work done.
Having purchased a house that was in need of some TLC, I asked DT Contracting to install a new kitchen and an en-suite bathroom.
The kitchen project involved knocking two rooms into one and putting an RSJ in the ceiling. I wanted a kitchen with character, so in addition to the installation of the units, Dave custom-made a decorative chimney breast to go over my cooker and a lovely window seat for the bay window. The end result is stunning and I'm blown away by how good it all looks. The en-suite bathroom was completed at the same time, again to a very high standard.
I was so impressed with the quality of the work, I asked DT back a few months later to build some decking in my garden, install a new family bathroom & update the downstairs cloakroom.
On each job Dave and his team have worked extremely hard and the finished projects have exceeded my expectations. I feel very fortunate to have found such a professional company in whom I have complete confidence and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
