Featured review

Probably the best builders in Cambridgeshire?

I cannot recommend DTF & Son enough: they've completed two projects for me now, a large kitchen extension to my cottage and a garage conversion, and at all times they were beyond professional: they are speedy, efficient and kind, and a lot of fun to work with at the same time! They helped me make decisions when I wasn't sure what was the best route forward, and they never made me feel foolish for asking really simple questions: I'm not a particularly handy woman, but they explained every stage of the process really clearly, including when they would and wouldn't be on site, and were always on hand to answer queries. In my experience, DTF always exceed expectations: David and Liam and the rest of the crew are a total delight and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any building project.

Superb cloakroom refit.

We used David and team to refit our cloakroom.
Once again top service! Reliable, honest and great workmanship from all the trades involved- decorator, sparky, and special thanks to Andy the plumber.
The end result was really high quality and good value. Project started and finished on time.
Thanks David!

Excellent builders, will definitely hire again!

Dave, Liam and team have done three big building jobs for us in the past 14 years and each one has been excellent. The most recent was in the second half of 2022. This was a difficult time in terms of availability of materials and other services however this was managed expertly by DTF & Son and delays were minimised. We are very happy with the final result and the build quality. The team are great to work with and offer a fantastic service.

Shop refits

We have used DTF & Son twice now for major shop refits.
David, Liam and all of the trades that they use are extremely pleasant to work with and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Both times the work started and finished on time and on budget.
Their work is to a very high standard and we are extremely satisfied and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend DFT & Son.

Friendly, reliable builders and decorators

We have been very pleased with DTF, not only with the results but also with their care, problem solving, resourcefulness, flexibility and positive approach. And their large number of reliable professional contacts.
DTF have done a surprising amount of work at our house over the last dozen years or so. Much painting and decoration, inside and out. A new brick-built side porch. A new front wall to fit with the conservation area. An additional hot water tank. Entire new floors, tiles and fittings for bathrooms. Repairs to chimney stacks. New gutters and gullies. And much more. We will be very pleased to use them again soon in refurbishing and re-roofing our conservatory.
We recommend them very highly.
