Decca has worked for me on many occasions on a number of properties in Durham, Edinburgh, Sunderland and York and has always provided an exceptionally good service.
 He has undertaken building work, carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, gardening and decorating, all with extremely good results. He is totally reliable and trustworthy and the quality of his work is of the highest standard. He always tries to find the best way to tackle a job and is conscious of cost and will do the best possible job within a specified budget and time scale.

I intend to continue to use Decca to maintain and improve my properties in the future and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needs an excellent handyman service.

“At Leighton, we have used DHS (Decca) for a variety of different services – from odd jobs to appliance installation to full office painting and decorating. He has always worked with the utmost professionalism and at a fair and competitive price. What I like best is that he is up front about the scope and cost of the job and sticks to his word, and he is not reluctant let me know if something can be done more efficiently elsewhere. I always know what to expect and I know that the result will be of the highest quality.

Decca will continue to be our first port of call when something needs doing around the office and I would recommend the same to anyone who asks.”
