We sufferd a water escape from a bathroom which spilt into our daughter’s bedroom.

Unfortunately, we suffered a water escape from a bathroom which spilt into our daughter’s bedroom. The result was that the whole carpet was ruined and floor boards needed replacing plus re-decoration, and all this happened just 2 weeks before the Christmas break!!! My wife and I have not claimed for anything in the last 20 years and forgot the process or what the outcome would be and if the remedial work would be completed before the family united at Christmas.

I must say that as soon as the case went from Aviva (my insurer) to your team at D J H Ravcon we felt that we were being looked after by your team. In particular I would like to highlight that Gabriella provided us with extremely good and highly professional service - She made the whole process feel seamless from start to finish. She listened to our plight with empathy and managed to work find an opportunity to slot our remedial work to before Christmas. Gabriella provided good follow ups and I felt that she was very diligent in her work ethos. The rest of the team with whom my wife and I interacted namely, Joe, Jack and Simon were all very professional. They did a very good job and were very approachable individuals.

In summary, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to Gabriella, Joe, Jack and Simon for their excellent service and to get us back on track in time for Christmas. I would appreciate if you could forward our sincere thanks to them.

Good Job and well done for hiring such good professionals!

I just wanted to write to thank you for your excellent service yesterday!  Firstly, you were able to arrange to visit my property within a couple of hours of my initial phone call, calling me as promised to confirm your arrival.  Secondly, your operative Craig undertook the work in a very efficient and helpful manner.   He was able to get a plumber to attend within half an hour of his call, and that work was finished in 15 minutes and then Craig cleaned up very thoroughly.  I would gladly recommend your services very highly, and look forward to working with you more in the future.  Thank you very much.  Kind Regards Philippa P, Managing Director of Sunday Best Ltd

To All at D J Hutchings Ltd

I write to thank you all for the outstanding service that you have given to me since my house was so badly damaged by fire and smoke damage in June 2011.  

Now it is impossible to believe that the enormous devestation has ever taken place.  Everything has been painstakingly retored to the highest standard and the attention to detail has been remarkable.

Everyone who took part in the work, whether it be in the awful clear up operation or the craftsmen who rebuilt everything, gave their very best and could not be faulted.

Most importantly of all, I was treated at all times with courtesy and consideration.  At the time this was so vaulable in helping the operation to run smoothly.  It was a pleasure to be around a terrific team of hardworking people.

My particular thanks go to Peter and Nigel for their organisational skills and for overseeing a superb job.

Hi Dan
Please can you pass on our thanks to every member of your team that has worked with us.  It’s been a long process but has been made so much easier by the team that have been with us, including yourself and the great job you’ve done in co-coordinating all the elements of the work.
Everyone, without exception, has been a delight to have in our home, from the initial team drying and stripping out to the final decorators (and everyone in between).  All the guys have been exceptionally well presented, polite, pleasant to be around and really patient with us getting the girls ready for school each morning and needing to move vans around.
Throughout everything everyone has worked in a really clean and tidy manner with top marks going to Andy for hoovering the drive!
It’s been a pleasure to have everyone in our home, life is now much quieter but my coffee jar is lasting noticeable longer….
I would have no hesitation in recommending your team or having them back again (although fingers crossed we don’t need to go through this again!).
Many thanks to everyone

Dan and his team are impressive - they over-estimated the job elapse time, which is almost unheard of in the building industyr, and a delightful surprise for me - each section of the job was carried out calmly, simply, capably and with no drama - the right specialists were brought in at the right time, and each trade left the site in a suitable state for the following trade, so they could get straight on with the job - there were no attempts to upsell the job, which was a refreshing change from most builders - overall, a good job very well done, almost 3 weeks ahead of projected end date - i am very happy and satisfied.

Mike came to carry out the work needed to fix our en suite (from 22nd - 25th August) and did a fantastic job for us. He was very professional, pleasant and friendly. He was a very hard worker and carried out his work very neatly.  He kept me updated on the work he was doing and spoke to me about it to make sure I was happy.

When he had finished, I went to look at the en suite and I was very impressed. He left it looking very clean and neat.  Mike is a real credit to your company.
We are very much looking forward to using our new en suite.

I know sometimes customers are quick to moan and slow to praise, so I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work carried out in my home during the last few weeks.

It was all scheduled perfectly, and a special mention is needed for Antonio. He is a skilled tradesman who is knowledgeable and passionate about his trade, it was great to see.
