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.

Review Comments
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.

Repair of bathroom following water damage from above. Replaced ceiling, replastering of wall, waterproof wall boards around bath and sink, repainting of walls.

I appreciated the quick reply to my initial text, visit to provides quotes for this and another possible job, and explaining the options. Darren has a friendly manner.

The job involved arranging multiple trades people visiting over a few days. I would have appreciated a little more communication around expected timing, as I sometimes waited in and at other times someone tried to visit when I didn't know to be home. However, I understand that it is difficult to keep tabs on other independent trades people, especially during the pandemic while they seem to be in very high demand.

I found Darren's suggestions about other possible work were helpful. Someone I know has requested Darren's details to arrange for him to do some work. I am hoping to move and, if the estate agents recommend further work, I will contact Darren to see about this.

Darren helped us refurbished the kitchen and other minor repair works around our one bed rental property. We think he is a trader that we can count on and turns out we are right. The works is finished to a high standard within the agreed timeframe, and Darren went beyond to helped us fix small things and disposed old furniture. Would highly recommend his team!

Darren quoted me £500 for half a day’s work. It seemed a lot but I was keen to get the work completed as soon as possible. I was happy with the work. It became clear that further work was urgently needed. Darren said that he would come to give me a quote to take on this extra work. Twice we organised for Darren to stop by, and twice I was kept waiting in all day only for him to not turn up. Darren came across as a really friendly man, but I wouldn’t use him again.

DS Joinery have fitted a brand new kitchen for us and have also done other work around the house. All done on time and at the time stated the job would be done.
The quality of work and the professionalism of this company, is what makes me want to leave this recommendation today.
Nothing appears to be too much trouble and all at a price that means you won't need to look for anyone else to do your Joinery work.
Absolutely Excellent.
