“As a result of the initial consultation I employed D.L.C structural to do both wall ties and re-point the front of the house. They did exactly what had been explained. They were thorough, kept me informed of the work being progressed, were always on time and the team worked hard. They were always thorough in their explanation, but didn’t try to baffle me with technical talk and jargon. D.L.C always did their best to help me understand the what’s, whys and rational behind what they were doing. I would highly recommend D.L.C structural. They will be the first company I call for a quote the next time I need some work doing.”

We recently bought a large 1930s house but had a full Structural Survey carried out prior to purchase. Amongst other things, this flagged up significant structural issues including wall tie failure and no lintels above the windows.

After extensive research, we called out Paul at DLC who carried out a comprehensive survey and explained in very simplistic terms what the required remedial work would entail.

We fully intended obtaining 3 quotes for the work required, but having discussed the repairs with Paul, we decided to follow our gut instinct and award DLC the contract as he is not only very knowledgeable in his field, but is a very honest person. Additionally, we found their quote very competitive.

Paul and his two sons have now completed all structural repairs on our property and everything has been done to an extremely high standard. Nothing was too much trouble and they always left the site clean and tidy. They were also very considerate towards our neighbours who have had to endure major renovation work being carried out next door.

To conclude, Paul and his team have turned what could have been an extremely stressful renovation project, into an experience which we have almost enjoyed. Thank you.

My 110 year old semi detached house was developing visible structural problems. I believed that the Helifix system could offer an appropriate solution. I contacted DLC a structural contractor experienced in this field.
Paul at DLC undertook a thorough survey and I accepted his fair estimate in relation to the work identified. The work was undertaken efficiently and professionally by Paul and his team. His intended course of action was explained and agreed as it progressed.
I was reassured by his knowledge and evident expertise and by the quality of the work undertaken. I believe that I was lucky to have found DLC.

Just had work done pointing the back of my house and some structural work and pointing to the front.
After having a few quotes Paul from DLC came, he was very knowledgeable and explained the work he recommended needed carrying out very clearly. The quote Paul gave was very good and we decided to contract DLC to carry out the work.
It was also great to see Paul working with his two sons, they worked really well together, they all had good knowledge and worked to a high standard. They also left the job in a clean and tidy condition.
I would definitely use DLC again.
