Had the misfortune to have three burst pipes in the attic a week before Christmas. I called Darren through Trusted Trader along with another joiner's number who never got back to me. Darren came out straight away, surveyed the damage and booked the work in for early January. Very reliable workman and would recommend to others.

Review Comments
A previous builder had made a complete mess of stud wall and tiling of a toilet / shower room. I found Darren via trusted trader and was not disappointed. He is a busy man and has to be booked well in advance.
The work involved was total stripping out of a double tiled wall, removal of plasterboard, wedi board, and much of the poor quality stud timber work and replacing same. The tiling work was done by another tradesman, Graham, who also furnished first class work.
Both Darren and Graham were very tidy so I was not left with lots of mess to clear up.
I give a "4" rather than "5" for Value for Money as I do not have a good yardstick to make a judgement.
I have no hesitation in recommending Darren (and indeed Graham) to future customers.

Darren fitted our kitchen and utility room and we are very pleased with the end result.
He was professional, trustworthy and transparent throughout the job, always keeping us in the loop with the decisions that had to be made. He is also really friendly and easy to get on with.
Darren also found us a great decorator to paint the kitchen and utility room once his work was done and has a great network of tradespeople to call upon if the need arises.
100% would go to Darren for any future work in our flat.

Darren helped us out with a small tricky job of switching over an integrated fridge/freezer. It was made tricky as they no longer make appliances the size of our doors and the only one we could find that was close required the door fittings to be changed to hinges and a shelf to raise the height to accommodate the door split. He hade quick work of it and the job was done to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend. Very fair price too.

Having had Darren do our kitchen a couple of years ago, we were keen to have him complete our bathroom as well. As we expected, the work was completed to a high standard, in a timely manner, and with minimal disruption. We were really unsure of what to go for, and Darren was able to make suggestions and present us with the different options that we had.

We are really pleased with the results. And will not hesitate to use Darren again in future, or to recommend his work to others.

Very good service when fitting my kitchen. Darren was very thorough, precise and always kept me updated or checked how I wanted certain things to be finished. He also helped me with a couple of other items throughout the flat and provided sage advice for some DIY projects I would undertake in future.

I’ve been doing a complete renovation of my flat and hence have had dealt with a lot of different tradesmen with varying degrees of satisfaction. Darren has definitely been among the best and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and will definitely be using him in future.

Darren is our go to joiner, I have had various jobs done by him over the years and have never been disappointed by his work.

Darren is reliable, hard working, friendly and a genuine honest guy who I cant recommend him enough.

His work is always done to the highest standard and he will go above and beyond so that the job is completed to perfection.

Recently I had a new kitchen fitted by Darren, he took the old one out and fitted the new one, he kept me up to date with the progress and offered advice on what he thought would work best.

I am delighted with the work he done.

Thanks Darren, your hard work is much appreciated.

Darren installed my Wrens kitchen. His work ethic and standards were top notch. He arrived early morning and each day worked to a set plan of where he wanted to get to ensuring the job was completed quickly. I was so impressed and have total confidence in recommending him.

Darren did a great job in rehauling or kitchen. He was installed engineered wood floor throughout our living room and hall. 4 months on, everything is still looking perfect. Darren paid a lot of attention to detail and was able to advise when we ran into any issue. Both the electrician and plumber he works with are also clearly well experienced and we are very happy with the services they provided.

Due to the high quality workmanship, reliability and manner of Darren & Co. I would not hesitate to recommend them enough.

Thanks Darren!!

Darren renovated our wee kitchen this summer. He and his team were really attentive to what we asked for and went the extra mile to refit some new worktops after the supplier provided the wrong ones. He was also happy to sort out some other niggly bits of joinery around the flat that had been bothering us, which he did to a good standard. We're really happy with the quality of the work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Darren fitted my howdens kitchen and replaced some wardrobe doors. He was very professional and kept me informed throughout the process. Kitchen has been finished to a very high standard. Darren's subcontractors (electrician, gas engineer) have also been great! Highly recommend :)

Plumbers had cut a hole in my bathroom floor to investigate a leak, which I was left to get repaired. It is a small room, but floor needed repaired and re-laid with vinyl. After having a number of problems with previous trades I was quite anxious about getting someone else in. However, I am very happy with the work and relieved to get issue sorted. Darren was very helpful, getting a couple of finishes for me to choose from, and left everything very tidy. Would recommend.

Our work was completed in July last year (2020) and we are still happy with the results! Our kitchen (which was ordered from Wren) was due to be fitted earlier in the year, but owing to the pandemic had to be rearranged. Darren was very accommodating considering how busy he was.

When completing the work, Darren was good to maintain a very tidy space and was very considerate of the fact we were working from home. He was also able to offer his professional opinion on any decisions we were struggling with. The work took a week start to finish and in this time he coordinated other trades for the project as well.

When an issue did arise, Darren was very quick to rectify this (even though it transpired it was a result of previous, unrelated work that had been done).

We were very happy with the service and the finish. Would use again, and would recommend.
