New bathroom remodelled including total aqua boarding
Dean came highly recommended to us via a local supplier, who said he was a long term customer and was renowned for his attention to detail. Our first thought was this is going to be expensive. We obtained 3 quotes and his quote was 23 and 28 percent lower than the others, what a shock! The remodelling gave him some very unexpected challenges. He resolved the issues in his non flap able way and always with good grace. He arrived every day "on the dot" and completed the work to a standard that surpassed all expectations. We would recommend him to anyone who desires a top class tradesman.

This the second time we have used Dean and again it was an excellent job. He arrived on time each day, kept us informed about what he was doing to ensure it was what we wanted and tidied up at the end of each day. The work was completed to a very high standard - we highly recommend him and will defiantly use him again if we need further work carried out.

Complete bathroom refit
Dean was the first tradesman that I asked top price the job purely based on the reviews. We subsequently had other companies tender some of which cheaper but I've always trusted my gut instinct and went with Dean. So glad I did, he is a perfectionist and wasn't afraid to challenge our plans all of which we went with his advice and turned out for the better. I would have no problem in recommending Dean in fact I already have. Well done Dean, will call you when we are ready to do the other bathrooms.

Replaced shower in bathroom plus complete refit of en suite
Dewan did an absolutely fantastic job on our bathroom and en suite and it was a pleasure to have him in the house. He arrived promptly each day., was extremely hard working and tidied up immaculately each day. His attention to detail and quality of workmanship was second to none and he kept us involved in the whole process informing us of issues and suggesting resolutions as well as checking that he was doing what we wanted him to do. Highly recommend him - if I could give him a 11 out of 10 I would. You may have to wait a bit to get him to do a job for you but believe me its worth it.

Full bathroom refit.
We feel very lucky to have found dean via 'checkatrade.com'. He sent us a prompt detailed quote (which reflected in the final price!) and started the job each day on time with minimal disruption. He refurbished our bathroom to a very high standard and kept us involved throughout the process (offering a range of solutions where necessary). His time keeping, cleanliness and more importantly his workmanship are impeccable. We will not hesitate to recommend him to others.

New bathroom.
When I first met dean to obtain n estimate for my new bathroom I felt like already knew him. On the first day of works dean arrived at the agreed time and ran me through his plan of works. before commencing works he put down sheets protect carpets and flooring and took the upmost care of my property whilst carrying out the works. During the works I requested some additional works to be completed within the project and dean happily incorporated this. Nothing was to much trouble. I would have no issues in recommending dean to any of my friends or colleagues.

Dean was thorough and professional in his evaluation and quoting for fitting a new bath in my flat. He arrived exactly when said he would and did a super job. I am absolutely delighted. He put beautifully so you couldn't tell there had been work going on. He is a very hard worker and his work is of a very high standard. I thoroughly recommend you use Gilbane.

Finishing downstairs loo that has been left by other builders
A HUGE thank you to Dean for rescuing my cloakroom project when I had been badly let down  by other tradesman who could not be bothered with a one day project, not matter how important to the customer! I have over 30 years of DIY/home improvements/organisation experience and working with other tradesman myself (for perspective in this review). I believe my standards are high. So .... To start with, Deans (photographs) experience, checks and qualifications swung my choice. Then, upon meeting, I found Dean to be professional in every aspect........Prompt, polite, friendly, knowledgable and thorough in his work with an appreciation from the off. (Not so usual for me!)
Dean was respectful of my options and consulted me throughout the different jobs (also very importantly) ........oh, and he insisted upon cleaning properly, warranting a final 11 out of 10! What could anyone want from your tradesman? I would most defiantly recommend  You will find Dean pleasant and easy to work with, and most importantly, capable and thorough. Thank you Dean. My downstairs loo vision is finally a functioning reality. Yay!

Bathroom refurbishment.
We wanted to have a victorian style bathroom with a separate shower as well as a bath but couldn't quite get our heads round how to achieve it in the space we had. Dean listened, took notes and managed to design a bathroom which is very functional and looks absolutely amazing. The finish is beyond is beyond our expectations and the attention to detail is first class. I can't thank this company enough and will defiantly be recommending to mu friends and family.
Customer in Folkestone June 2018
New bathroom fitted 
I cannot recommend Dean highly enough. My bathroom has all the qualities of a 5* hotel - I am very unimaginative and asked Dean to choose. He ran everything past me before it was fitted and it has completely exceeded my expectations. Dean also fixed my drainpipe for free as a favour which wasn't part of the job. He is hard working, amiable, polite and very thoughtful about the customer. You don't feel like a customer more like he would do something he would do for his own house. I will definitely utilise his services again.
