Review Comments
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.

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.

He mounted a very heavy TV unit on a plasterboard wall perfectly and at a very low price. Took the time to reinforce where the unit was supported inside the wall.

Amazing job, thanks again.

Darren replaced my bathroom floor and skirting as well as changing out my grotty tiles for wet wall (including some re-plastering) and replacing the shower screen and bath covering.

Although it took a while to lock in a date (understandable given Covid!) it was well worth the wait, and completed in a day.

Super friendly, always took the time to explain everything, and I'm so happy with my new bathroom wall and floor !

Will be going to Darren when I finally get round to doing my kitchen!

Thanks x

Work done: Fire door repairs, and creating access to communal pipes.

DS Joinery expertly resolved several urgent issues in our tenement building across two flats. They responded at relatively short notice during a busy period, assessing and communicating well prior to starting the work.
Darren was dedicated to achieving a professional finish of each task, and took time to explain things clearly to me while completing them. He was also friendly and straightforward to engage with. Thank you!

Darren helped us with a full kitchen refit earlier this year after moving into a tenement property. Before the work was carried out he viewed the kitchen to ensure he knew what we wanted and to provide an accurate quote.
Darren was professional and diligent in carrying out the work. When problems arose he consulted with us regarding the potential solutions and the other trades people he used for tiling etc, were of a similar high standard. His dedication for customer satisfaction and pride in his work was evident from start to finish.

Review Comments
Our utility room was badly kitted out. It had a rag bag of mismatched units, an illogical work flow and a washer-dryer that was awkward to access. We found a magazine photo of a design we wanted and Darren worked closely with us to realise the concept, making adjustments as necessary to deal with the limitations of the space available. He sourced all necessary units and accessories and arranged for the tiling to be carried out so that it was, for us, a one-stop shop. His own joinery work was first class. As a busy one man operator, he will usually not be immediately available and his responsiveness to emails is less than immediate, but a text usually works well and once started he sees the project through diligently. He was easy to get on with, a tidy worker who removed everything from site, leaving us able to immediately enjoy our transformed utility room. Highly recommended. Before and After photos are attached.

Darren hung six doors, silenced a very noisy staircase, built and fitted doors for five access hatches. Excellent work. A very professional and friendly service. Now looking at additional work that he can help with when he is available.

We have used Darren before for small and bigger jobs. On this occasion Darren was doing our en-suite and a fantastic job he has done. Darren’s eye for detail is second to none and he went out his way to ensure the work and finish was of only the highest of standards.

Work included but was not limited -
Wet wall, frame work, floor preparation, ceiling lowered, building & installing pocket door and finishing touches.

We would highly recommend Darren and will always be the first person to call when looking for a joiner and would happily wait till space in his calendar was free.
