  • "Thank you so much for an excellent job of our new extension. You gave us a price and stuck to it. Your workers were very helpful and tidy. When we called you about a problem with one of the guttering clips you sent someone round to sort it out for us. I have recommended you to friends and would recommend you to anyone." John & Andrea
    Tonbridge, Kent
  • "Both Sean and all his workers have made every effort to minimise the disruption to our day to day living while the work was being carried out, and we would have no problem in recommending him to anybody considering having work done on their property." Al & Liz
    Etchinghill, Folkestone
  • "Direct building Services have just completed an extension on my cottage. From the start the builders were prompt to start work every morning and were skilled craftsmen. The extension came in on budget and the finish is of good quality. Any extras required during the build were completed at a reasonable cost." Steve & Sally Roots
    Crundale, Canterbury
  • "I was delighted with the extension to our lounge created by Sean and his team of tradesmen. It blends in so well with the original building. I needed flexibility in the build to achieve the result I wanted and Sean's personal service approach made the process smooth and most important within budget." Martin Pilbeam
  • "Direct Building Services did a fantastic job. The project started on time and finished ahead of schedule and on budget. Sean Bishop and his extensive team of skilled tradesmen tackled every aspect of the job and workmanship quality was first class. No worries - no hassle, and I would certainly recommend them." Francis
  • "I went for four quotes, and Sean Bishop’s was the lowest. The standard of workmanship was excellent, and extra work I asked for or proved necessary was charged at a very reasonable price. He and his men could not have been more obliging. I recommend Direct Building services without reservation." Rev Richard
  • "Sean and his team have been very helpful and patient with us and have advised without bias on materials.

    The work has been carried out to a very high standard and to schedule." Sue & Graham
  • "We were very happy with the quality of the building work and the good communication from the builders.

    The work was carried out to our satisfaction and within the estimated time." Karen & Steve
    Lyminge, Folkestone
  • "From the outset Mr Bishop was well organised and all the supplies arrived in good time. We were very pleased with the polite manner in which all of the workforce conducted themselves. Any concerns we had were dealt with promptly and Mr Bishop was always available to discuss the progress of the work." Pat & Graham
  • "You see and hear so many disaster stories on television, that choosing a builder is a worrying time, especially as most of us only do it once or twice and its a steep learning curve. I'm glad to say that Sean and Direct Building Services delivered on their promises and all the family are now enjoying the results." Paul
