“Dave has completed three projects for us now – the addition of an annex, refurbishment of a loft conversion with the addition of a new staircase, and creation of an ensuite and new family bathroom. I was a fussy customer and wanted everything to match the original features of our house, and Dave was very patient and helpful with this brief, offering useful solutions to tricky problems. The team were always friendly and arrived as promised.  I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to use DPL carpentry services again”.

“DPL Carpentry completed a first floor extension and garage conversion for us in 2016.  Dave and his team were efficient, knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy.  We felt more than comfortable leaving them in our home when we were not there.  Their workmanship and attention to detail was of an excellent standard and they were always polite and cheerful.  They completed the original work within timescales and once they commenced we kept adding ‘additional bits’ which they happily accommodated – they seemed to become part of the family!  They did an extremely professional job and we cannot recommend them highly enough and would use them again without hesitation.

Mr and Mrs N, Finchampstead 2016


“After a full renovation of our house, the qualities we would ascribe to DPL are –  excellent forward planning & project management; fanatical about prep work; experienced, skilled, committed team taking real care and pride in their work; sound sensible advice with practical alternatives and solutions as needed; regular consultation and communication; invoices always transparent and clear with pre-agreed extras identified separately; and no loose ends unaddressed.  Our project was completed within the agreed time and budget and we’re thrilled with the result.  Dave and his team are very professional and a pleasure to work with”.

DPL carried out a kitchen and conservatory extension to my property and I am delighted with the service Dave and his team provided.  They are well organised, tidy and keep to the schedule provided.  The quality of the work is excellent, and their consideration of neighbours is commendable.

“During the last 2 years we have used DPL Carpentry Services to carry out extensive roof rebuilding work together with the fitting of a new kitchen and en suite bathroom. We have been delighted with the results and impressed with the quality of workmanship, attention to detail and professional approach. We would unreservedly recommend Dave Lockett and his small team of skilled workers”.

“Extensive refurbishment to our 100+ year old property has been carried out over the past 16 years.  The attention to detail by competent craftsmen to our exacting requirements is commendable”.

“I live in a Victorian terrace house and over the last 2 years I have redone the whole interior – well, Dave and his team have, but I feel like I’ve been in control!  I have felt comfortable spending large sums of money on a project close to my heart because Dave is professional, highly knowledgeable and up-to-date, but also practical and helpful in suggesting ways of achieving what you envisage for your home. I would not hesitate in using him again or recommending him to others”.

Miss T, Eton

“DPL Carpentry completed a large and complex extension for us. Our house is situated on a steep shared drive with difficult access for trade vehicles. Apart from the excellent and professional building and internal finishing it is to their real credit that we didn’t fall out with our neighbours during the build! DPL works with an excellent group of skilled trades people. They are also courteous, respectful and easy to have on your property on a day to day basis, we were both working the majority of build time. Apart from their good work DPL operate in a very clean and tidy way which makes a big difference on any building project. We would have no hesitation in recommending them”.

Mr and Mrs W, Lower Earley

“We have been very impressed with the standard of workmanship achieved by DPL Carpentry Services during the construction of our extension.  We found their employees to be tidy and diligent workers, knowledgeable, friendly and felt perfectly comfortable with them working in our house, even when we were not at home.  We would have no hesitation in recommending DPL Carpentry Services”.

Mr and Mrs M, Winnersh

“We used DPL in 2010 for some extensive decorating and maintenance work on our Grade II Listed house.  This included some new wooden windows, roof and barge-board repairs, replacing guttering and downpipes, pointing, electrical work, re-painting, re-laying a large terrace and digging a new soak away.  All this work was carried out on budget, on time and with an impressive degree of attention to detail and craftsmanship.  Everyone associated with the firm was helpful and a pleasure to deal with.  We will definitely go back to DPL for any further work on our house”.  Please see further testimonial regarding additional work completed in 2016

“DPL Carpentry built an extension for us in 2009.  They did a thoroughly professional job and we really couldn’t fault them in any way.  The price was competitive, the work completed within promised timelines and, most importantly, the workmanship was first class.  Dave and his crew were always courteous, hard working, tidy and totally trustworthy.  We have already recommended them to several friends and have no hesitation in continuing to do so”.
