About UsAn insight to DMS

DMS has primarily worked within the domestic market place delivering a high standard of workmanship since 1997.

We have worked with local architects , business owners and the general public who have a need for hassle free project management enabling them to go about their daily business with minimum fuss and disruption.

We are able to lead you through a project from inception through to completion . From a first initial visit to aces your requirements, to implementing the planning and drawing process inclusive of building regulations and finally the build process and the coordination of all trades. Carrying out regular meetings and phone calls  with the client so as to make what can be a daunting prospect so much easier to deal with.

We cover all trades and have worked with many trusted sub-contractors over the years enabling us to meet all your needs and requirements.

We thrive on a challenge and always endeavour to find a solution to overcome any problems that we may meet along the way. This is important as renovation and re-furbishment projects are not an exact science so the ability to problem solve is important. We pride ourselves on this.

Joiner / Supervisor

Johno is the lead joiner since Darren has come off the tools. He came to dms on work experience at 15 yrs old and impressed us with his hard working attitude and has been with us ever since. 15 years on he is now an extremely competent joiner with a great temperament . By far the strongest man on the team.


Apprentice Joiner

Our joinery appprentice who has now started his second year. Prior to this he did his work experience with DMS and worked alongside Darren at weekends and school holidays helping him to renovate his own house . During this time it was clear that Nathan was very hard working and had great natural aptitude for joinery. If all young men were like him employers wouldn’t hesitate to take on trainees. A credit to himself and DMS.

TestimonialsIt's nice to be appreciated!

From this day forward DMS is the only company I use and highly recommend to friends and family including my sister who also used DMS to complete a big renovation on her property and my mum who had a new bathroom suite. Darren is always available to give advice and he has a hard-working team working alongside him and I would never use any other company. Thank you DMS for many years of good service and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Emprocom – Jim McDonnell

Darren’s team did an absolutely fantastic job so much so that Josie then decided to have a door put through into her garage and her utility area upgrading with the same units. Josie would like to thank Darren and his team and cannot sing their praises enough.

I would also like to say a massive thank you for taking the worry away away and making having a new kitchen for Josie an exciting stress free time I will be recommending Darren and his team to anybody who is thinking of having Joinery Done.
