Refurbishment of 3 bed terraced Rental Property Restoration & Refurbishment
We recommend Dec-Sado very highly. They completely refurbished a 3 bed terrace in seven weeks. They installed a new bathroom and kitchen, laid new flooring, dealt with various damp related problems and redecorated throughout. They also did some roofing work and laid new paving in the garden. They did all this whilst respecting all the parameters we gave them such as not overly disturbing the neighbours.
There were many things we appreciated but the following aspects really stood out:
1. Communication. This was, quite simply, superb. We communicated with Darius via face-to-face meetings, text message, email and WhatsApp. Darius was incredibly flexible and met at times convenient to us. He was swift to respond to any kind of electronic message and was happy to send us photos of the build via WhatsApp.
2. Endeavour. Darius and his team would go above and beyond time after time. They would often work long evenings and at weekends to keep the build on schedule. They spent a huge amount of time prepping walls prior to painting as they were so keen to achieve a good finish.
3. Flexibility. No matter what's the build threw up, the team responded. Everything was "no problem" with Darius. The roof leaked through the build but was dealt with with the minimum of fuss and there were plenty of other examples like this.
In short, what could have been a stressful experience, turned out to run very smoothly; we are very glad we hired Dec- Sado.

Renovation of small one bed. Restoration & Refurbishment
If Carlsberg did builders.....Darius has been nothing short of fantastic. His can do attitude has made renovating my flat a pleasure. Darius is prompt, willing to go the extra mile and always answers the phone, or calls one back immediately (a rarity amongst builders!).
The standard of the work has been excellent, his team are pleasant and he came in on budget. Well done Darius. Five stars.

House refurb and additional en suites Restoration & Refurbishment
Darius was great to work with and very professional. He discussed every step of the process with us and was also happy to meet some changes in plans as we went along.
Always helpful, available and punctual - I cannot speak highly enough of Darius and his team.
We plan to use Darius and his team again as we were so impressed.
He was able to handle all stages for us including certified electrics and pluming which made the whole process much easier to manage.
Five stars! *****

Four/five-bedroom home needs modernisation Restoration & Refurbishment
Dariusz and his people did the project in good time for a fair price and to a generally high standard.
They started on 22 February (within a week of me placing the contract) and finished near the beginning of July. The job involved:
- removing two walls and constructing a third;
- full rewiring (including new sockets and lights) and replumbing;
- replastering all walls and rebuilding coving;
- installing a kitchen and two bathrooms;
- turning a brick lean-to into a utility room;
- painting throughout (walls, ceilings and woodwork).
Dariusz was very good at keeping in contact and answered emails promptly. The Polish tradesmen were very competent but it was a disadvantage that they did not speak much English. The lack of language made a few jobs more difficult than they needed to be.

Refurbishment of 3 bed semi-detached house Restoration & Refurbishment
Renovation of 1970s 3 bed semi. New kitchen, new bathroom, partial re-wire including installation of new fuse box in main house and garage. All walls had vinyl wallpaper which was stripped and then all walls skimmed and painted. Woodwork was also painted and various other works carried out as part of a complete refurbishment. Darius was the project manager with Jack and Pavo on site carrying out the work. Patrick carried out the electric work. We chose Dec-Sado as they could start work with the minimum of delay and their quote was the most competitive. Jack and Pavo spoke limited English but were always very helpful and polite. Communication was not however a problem as Darius was very reliable in terms of answering e-mails and telephone calls. We were very pleased with the work and impressed by how hard the team worked. We instructed the team to carry out quite a bit of extra work on top of the original specification that we initially agreed. The extra work was carried out at an agreed competitive price. We would not hesitate to use the same company again.

Fit new Kitchen, Bathroom.General Decoration Bedminster Restoration & Refurbishment
5 Stars Highly recommended.
Having invited 2 local tradesmen who ignored my request to quote for my job Dec-Sado got in touch to express his interest .It is always a lottery employing the unknown but I cannot stress enough how delighted I am with the end results .The property had been let to the same tenants for the last 14 years and was badly in need of a face lift.The work involved the complete re-plastering of all wall and ceilings in this small 3 bed roomed terrace followed by the updating of the central heating system and complete redecoration including the installation of a new bathroom and kitchen .I have met many builders over the years but none have been so polite and accommodating as members of his firm.Rafal the main man ion the coalface is a perfectionist and is worthly of special praise.The property as been taken over by my son who I am sure would be please to show the results of their work.Before and after pictures are available.

Refurb a 3 bed hse and build a small extension Restoration & Refurbishment
Darius and his team came to quote for the job and started a few days later. I was very impressed with all aspects. 1 big bonus was Darius did all the paper work for me with the council, and found an architect to do drawing for my extension. They cleared up every night which I have never experienced with builders, at least not to this standard. The work was finished promptly and to a very high standard. The plastering, painting and tiling were particularly good. Extras were dealt with very fairly, infact often done at no charge. I do not live near where the job was, and only visited the site once during the 8 week job. I was keep informed of the works almost daily via pictures on What's app. I highly recommend them.

Wall Prep and Painting 4 rooms Painting & Decorating
Dairus and his team did a wonderful job on fully redecorating my flat. I often was surprised to find them working late into the evening and even on the weekends. Despite working over the winter they re plastered and painted - even supported the removal of some unexpected asbestos
Thanks for the great job

3 bed house - redecoration Painting & Decorating
I've got nothing but positive comments to make about the job that Dariusz and team did on my house. Large 3 bed victorian house required completely renovating (all wallpaper removed (many layers in some places), walls replastered, whole house redecorated) in a very tight timescale. Dariusz provided a reasonable quote and was realistic about the time required to do the job properly. He kept me updated throughout the project and gave me all receipts for the materials purchased to review. The finished job is great - really pleased with the high quality and professional job that he did. All finished on time, as promised. Comes highly recommended (and have just passed details on to a friend today!).

Refurb of 2 bed terrace- minor repairs and decorating Restoration & Refurbishment
Dariusz and Bob did a fantastic job on my home. They were a pleasure to deal with, with great communication skills so I always knew what was going on with the work and felt able to ask questions whenever I liked. They were also really flexible, and happy to pick up extra bits of work on the house on the way. The finish on the works is great, with real attention to detail and no corners cut. All this for a really competitive price. If I ever need more work done I'll definitely use Dec-Sado again.

Bob has just fitted our bathroom and en-suite. All of the work that he carried out has been done to superb levels.
Nothing was too much trouble. Bob did the job for a very reasonable cost. I'm very impressed and would definitely call him for bath and basin installation and tiling related requirements I have in the future. Was really friendly and tidy. Would highly recommend this company.

Refit bathroom Bathroom Fitting
BAD EXPERIENCE – AVOID AT ALL COSTS
Due to character limit in here, please see full review on:
Bathroom re-fitted by Dec Sado in late Oct 2011
(1) DISHONESTY - CLAIMING NOT RELATED BILLS
The material cost Dariusz claimed back from me a double to what was estimated by him earlier. Although he has provided receipts for the cost, I have subsequently found some of the receipts were dated before the project started. A total disgrace and dishonesty!
(2) SHOWER DOOR NOT FITTED PROPERLY
The shower door could only open half way. It also makes a squeaking noise as the door is scratching with the frame.
(3) ELECTRIC SHOWER NOT FITTED PROPERLY
The electric shower was poorly fitted, you can still see bit of the pipe underneath and also a big gap/hole round the pipe. It then lead to water leak to downstairs (see later).
(4) BATHROOM LEAK and A HOLE IN THE CEILING
In about 3 months time, wet patches are found on the ceiling below the shower room. The fitter came and had a look at it. Without consent, he dig a big hole on the ceiling. He claimed he has fixed it and will come back later to repair the ceiling. The shower was still leaking when I took shower that evening.
(5) IGNORING PHONE CALL and NO MORE RESPONSE
I tried to call the fitter but he did not come back as agreed. Further calls were ignored and not being answered. So I was left with a leaking shower and big hole on my ceiling.

I'm really shocked to read that.
We did the job six months ago-job posted on 11th Sep 2011Customer was very happy and emailed me very positive feedback(unfortunately i can't attach the email to this post,for those who are interested i can email directly).Few weeks ago customer hired another tradesman to replace the shower tray and then the problems started. Customer falsely accused my company of all sorts of problems made by other tradesman! When I went to explain the situation she demanded me to fix all damages made by other tradesman! I was informed by one of the neighbour that this situation has happened before!!!
Of course I have already reported that to Special Building Inspection and hopefully the appropriate action will be taken.

No problems - job was comprehensively done and at a good price - cannot see any flaws or oversights. The plasterer's visit was delayed a day and I was not informed (which might have been problematic). Workmen were helpful. I would/will use them again.
