"We purchased a 1930's house which needed complete renovation throughout and we had plans passed for a double story side and rear extension. We appointed Dave Powell of DAP builders in July 2013 as our builder after receiving a competitive and comprehensive quote.
We found Dave and his team to be punctual, willing to adapt, good communicator's and they left the site tidy at the end of each day.
We are extremely happy with the quality of work that was completed and our finished home, we would certainly use DAP builders again for any future work."
Jonathan & Victoria Osborne, Blackwell.
"I would not hesitate in recommending Dave Powell as a builder. He did a major kitchen extension for us last year which we are really delighted with. There were unforeseen complications with the need for an additional support beam which the architect had not put in the plans which Dave identified. The job was a big one, involving heavy structural changes and Dave and his team managed those expertly. Dave was always cheerful and relaxed about changes we made, and I did make a few of those along the way, and he helped take away some of the stress from the process. He and his team were extremely easy to have in our home and we felt the job was in very safe hands."
Linda Strain, Selly Oak.
"DAP were asked to quote on a ground floor extension and due to the professional attitude, innovative ideas and highly competitive quote I instantly felt that Dave was the man for the job. All of the schedules were met and the attention to detail was second to none. I have every confidence in the work that has been done and will be using them again. I am glad I made the decision to go with DAP Building."
Simon Lawther, Bromsgrove.
"Dave Powell has worked on many building projects for me over the last 6 years. His projects have included all forms of carpentry and building jobs such as loft conversions, kitchens, bathrooms, and windows. Dave always works to an extremely high standard and finishes the job on time and on budget. Dave and his team are always very reliable, approachable and great at problem solving. I would strongly recommend Dave to anybody."
Spencer Evans, Bromsgrove.
"DAP have always provided the highest quality work to an agreed time and budget. We have used them many times for both simple and complex pieces of work - the process is always simple from discussing the plan or design with Dave and agreeing a budget through to the quality of the workmen delivering the work. I wouldn't hesitate recommending DAP based on the high quality of work they have carried out for us or being a reference for potential customers."
Nick Bowman, Bromsgrove.
"We chose DAP Building Contractors because of their competitive quote and we are very pleased that we did. Dave was always helpful. It was no problem having the team around our house and they paid great attention to detail. We are delighted with the brick extension they built for us and I am very happy to recommend them."
Rose Humphries, Finstall.
"DAP spent four months transforming the upstairs of our house including building a sizeable extension, creating a bedroom and moving an ensuite. The work was completed on time, on budget and to an exceptionally high standard, we are absolutely delighted with the end results. Almost as important to us, Dave and his team were no trouble to have in the house, ensuring the impact of the building works on our day to day lives was kept to a minimum. We have recommended DAP to a number of friends considering having work done on their property."
Steve and Katie Douglas
"David and his team from DAP got on and completed the project for us within a tight time frame. We we're very pleased with the outcome"
"We employed DAP Builders to build a two-storey side extension. Prior to giving Dave the job, his quote was by far the most detailed and the advice he gave us was much appreciated. During the work we found him and his team including contractors hard-working and professional at all times and no problem to have around the house, this was especially important due to having small children around whilst the build was going on. They were tidy and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The extension involved a new kitchen, 2 new bathrooms and renovation of the existing house as well as the new build. The finish and quality of the work throughout the project has been excellent and we are really pleased with the new space that we have. When following the architect's plans, Dave found that some of the measurements on the plans were inaccurate. This was no problem as Dave's experience meant that he was able to recalculate the measurements to ensure all was structurally sound. He gave us advice throughout the build and explained each step fully to us. We thought Dave and his team were fantastic, and would not hesitate to employ them again should the need arise."
Rachel & Paul Roberts, Bromsgrove.
"I was recommended DAP by a colleague at work and from the outset was impressed by the professionalism and quality of the service I received. The quote was competitive and all the work was completed on time, and within the agreed budget. Throughout the work David offered advice and guidance about how to progress with the project [a kitchen extension] and unforeseen issues were dealt with effectively. Subsequent snagging was also promptly dealt with. Throughout the process David and his team were prompt, arriving every day ay 7.30 and getting straight to work. Mess was always dealt with and the work carried out with consideration for those living nearby. I strongly recommend his services."
Gary Delahunty, Aston Fields.
"I employed the services of DAP builders to construct an extension on a bungalow and carry out general refurbishment work. The house was in a sorry state of neglect and from the outset Dave provided invaluable knowledge and experience visiting the site numerous times even before I accepted his quote. His quote was clear and concise and payments were structured to coincide with various stages of the work. The work was carried out in a professional way and his team kept the site clean & tidy throughout. Dave's team carried out building work, plumbing, heating, electrical, plastering, rendering and decoration. They even fitted the kitchen. With Dave's help I added considerable value to the property and it is now sold. The estate agents notes described the house as in 'immaculate condition' and it even appeared in an episode of 'A Place In the Sun & Home or Away'. I have now moved on to another property project and I have asked DAP builders to quote for an extension again. I would therefore have no hesitation recommending Dave and his team at DAP Builders."
S Thomas, Finstall, Bromsgrove.
"DAP wasn't my first choice of builder, however they should have been. Our project was completed on time and on budget and finished just how we wanted it. Dave and his team were helpful and accommodating and I wouldn't have any issue recommending DAP to anybody in the market looking for a reliable builder and unsure who to trust. "
Nic Windley, Austco Ltd.
"We had our garage converted by DAP and cannot speak highly enough of them. Dave was knowledgable in advising us of the building regulations for our job and a quote was provided very promptly. When the garage was converted, the work was completed quickly and to a very high standard. DAP were always punctual, friendly and left the work space tidy every evening. We have no hesitation in recommending DAP and in fact did to our friends, who are also pleased with their garage conversion."
