D Plumridge - Testimonials
I was not on site while the driveway was being replaced, but was kept informed by Darren, who also sent photos of the completed drive and on inspection it was a very good job and finished in the time stated. So we would definitely recommend this company.
I was very pleased that with the quick service and quality completion of a new manhole cover for my pathway. I will be recommending Darren to friends and family.
Delighted with my new patios both back and front. Darren and his team listen and build to what you want and lend advice and ideas where necessary. They keep you constantly updated and are easily approachable. Very pleased with the finished product. Excellent job.
We have been using this company for years. This time we wanted a new patio at the rear of the house. Every time, we are very pleased with the work. Darren is efficient, prompt and professional. His team works very hard to achieve the best quality and they pay attention to every detail making sure you are satisfied. Another great job, Mr Plumridge!
We needed our brick block driveway lifted and re-laid as there were lots of dips and was the result of a very bad job when laid many years ago. We were recommended Plumridge by a number of people and it is a recommendation that was worth the wait! Darren and his team did a fantastic job, the guys worked extremely hard for over a week and were very polite (and funny!). I would recommend Plumridge without hesitation, we are very very happy with the result! It is hard to find good, reliable services like this these days so thank you Darren Plumridge and co!
We were very happy with the end result in connection with the work of rebuilding a two level raised garden patio and the removing and relaying of paths, all with granite slabs. Daren and his team offered helpful suggestions on a number of matters that we had not considered. The job was completed within the allotted timescale and all the accumulated mess associated with the work was carefully removed, giving little indication of what had gone on.
We would have no hesitation of recommending the services of Plumridge.
I had my driveway replaced, and the Weather was awful, however the work was still completed on time to the high standard I was expecting.
I was not at home when they finished, however returned to the house that evening to a well finished driveway, and all of the area clean and tidy. Would have no hesitation in recommending the company.
We have just had our new driveway completed and are very happy with the end result. Darren’s team were very hard working, punctual and pleasant and all the work has been completed to a high standard and within a very reasonable timescale. Darren was always on hand for any questions and on site to check on the progress daily. We would highly recommend Darren and his team.
Having seen examples of recent drives and ones that had been laid for years, we elected to go with D Plumridge; it was a great decision. Whilst we had some clear ideas of what we wanted, Darren made suggestions that enhanced the drive and complimented our house. Listening to his advice coupled to fine adjustment from his craftsmen resulted in a drive that exceed all expectations and really looks superb.
Being near a school, our drive is very public; already there has been many complimentary comments about its looks and how it compliments our property plus the commitment of the workman. Whilst we were not originally aware of the design awards Darren has gained, we can now fully understand why he does win awards – helped along by workman prepared to work to his high standards who are committed to making sure the job looks right when finished.
Delighted with our driveway! We highly recommend Darren and his team who work to a very high standard. Reliable and hardworking, they maintain a neat and tidy well run site whilst they undertake the work. Excellent timekeeping whatever the weather, very conscientious and great attention to detail. Thank you. Will definitely use again for our next project.

Really pleased with our new
Really pleased with our new patio which included two paths, planters and circles.
The boys were very friendly and always happy to answer any questions that we raised.
Darren visited site most days to check progress which was a comfort to us and whilst both commencement and finished job took longer than anticipated it was definitely worth the wait.
Thanks again Darren for a quality job.

We recently had our 66sqm
We recently had our 66sqm driveway replaced and reworked by Darren and his team. End to end we worked with Darren on choosing materials (Marshalls) and obtaining samples before deciding on a look and finish.
Darren is in high demand and we were more than happy to wait 5 months before work began. When it did there were a crew of 3 who excavated, laid all foundations, built our wall, levelled out the driveway material before finally laying the slabs.
We are quite picky on what we wanted and how we wanted it to look. However, the standard of work is high and the fit and finish shows care and attention to detail!
Thanks again to Darren, Paul and his crew. Everyone was really helpful, kept us informed and really wanted to make sure we were happy with the work, at each stage of the process.

We approached Darren Plumridge for
We approached Darren Plumridge for a quote to construct a sizeable rear terrace and a front driveway with walled garden.
He was not the cheapest quote, but he took time to visit us twice to discuss our requirements. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He provided addresses so we could see other work he had completed in the local area. He is also incredibly busy. We were prepared to wait 16 weeks for him to arrive on site to start work.
The Plumridge building team are a very pleasant bunch. They worked in all weathers to get the job done. Both the team and Darren were very patient with our comments and they sort to make the job the best it could be.
His company tag line “Assuring you of my best attention at all times” definitely applied.
We are very pleased with the final result, and I would recommend Darren without hesitation.
We had our patio and
We had our patio and driveway done by Darren and his team in 2009. They were extremely professional, worked hard, and the quality of their work was excellent. They took great care over the finest of details. We were and continue to be absolutely delighted with both the patio and driveway.
Of course, weather and constant use meant that 10 years later we needed some minor repair work done to the grouting of the patio. As before, the quality of this repair work exceeded our expectations and we’re delighted with our rejuvenated patio. Darren was also very helpful with useful advice and tips. We would, without hesitation, highly recommend Darren and his team.
Darren and his team laid
Darren and his team laid a new drive to my mother in law’s large house in Clapham . He stood out from the other contractors from the very beginning, providing helpful advice , useful guidance and a fair price. The customer service from him and the whole team was above and beyond in all ways. There was quite a long lead time, but we are so glad we made the right decision to wait and go with Plumridge as the end result is just superb. I cannot recommend them highly enough and have already asked him to quote for our own back garden paving and walling. He came round, measured up and a day later the samples are all in the post and a quote on my desk. Thank you Plumridge- fantastic service.
My new large drive completed.
My new large drive completed. A lovely job. The young workmen were very helpful, polite and courteous. Thank you. It looks great. Diana.

Darren and his team have recently finished 2 jobs for us – 1. replacing our front drive, front garden and front wall, and 2. some paving and landscaping work in our back garden.
They have done a super job and we are very happy with the end results. Both areas are transformed. We arranged the work with Darren before the summer, and agreed to wait 3 months before the work was done given existing projects underway. We are pleased we did – definitely worth the wait for quality workmanship.
A few things stood out in particular – they were very co-operative and worked with us to achieve what we wanted. Courtney the foreman and his workers were very polite at all times, respecting our property which we appreciated. We also asked for a few additional works to be completed across the job which were completed in line with the overall work and in the agreed timeframe – again something that was a big help for us.
Thanks to Darren and his team – would thoroughly recommend and will certainly use again one day.

Can’t recommend Darren and his guys highly enough. An incredibly professional finish, and exactly what we were hoping for. We supplied Darren with example photos of the sort of finish we were looking to achieve and he was able to identify and deliver the perfect solution, putting our minds at ease. All of the workers that came to site were incredibly tidy, polite and courteous, and very tolerant of our 3-year old son’s nosiness and excitement shown towards the diggers and dumper trucks!

Darren’s team built us a high quality cobbled driveway, which has already attracted admiration from passers by. They were courteous and considerate throughout, not just with us, but with our neighbours too. The site was left immaculate. Darren also recommended a great plumber/electrician. Great job!

5 star Service would recommend without hesitation. Darren, Dave, Paul and Mick carried out an excellent job on our drive. The service and standard of workmanship was excellent throughout from quotation to completion of the work. Good advice was offered during the preparation and laying of the paying ensuring the best possible design for our drive.
Cloe – 17/09/2017 14:05
Darren and his team did a great job on our front drive about 10 years ago so we invited him back to quote on a smaller patio job. His price was fair and he recommended
good partner suppliers for bi-fold doors. Matt and Terry worked quickly, efficiently and tidily. We’re really pleased with the results, thank you.

As mentioned in other reviews, Darren does have a long lead time and we had to wait slightly over a year for our initial installation. We were very happy with the quality of work and particularly the kerbing and lighting. Courtney and the guys were fantastic, really friendly, helpful and approachable. Unfortunately, we had a bad batch of Marshalls blocks, and this is where I have been particularly pleased that we had chosen Darren. As an approved Marshalls contractor, once we raised our concerns, Darren referred the issue immediately to his contacts at Marshalls who in turn made several site visits and tested the blocks. Marshalls agreed to replace the blocks (with Darren as contractor), and the drive has now been re-laid. The finished drive now looks really good and we are very pleased with it. It was also nice to see some exceptional after sales service, with Darren arranging for some minor repairs and also to kindly replace a block that had an oil drip from a delivery driver.

The team were punctual every day and left the place clean each night. Its seems crazy to say but finding a good set of reliable workmen is worth its weight in gold and as Plumpaving did a great job on our driveway we went back to them when we were ready to do the garden. Great range of products, prices but always the same high quality work and reliable staff! Thanks to Darren, Dave Paul and Michael – we are now ready for summer

Our new crazy paved drive is as we wanted and looks very good. We were very pleased with the quality of the work and the price was less than many other quotes from similar companies. Darren Plumridge has a very good local reputation and he and his team lived up to it. I would recommend them if you are having a new drive
Denise – 07/04/2016 08:59
We may well have had to wait longer than we anticipated for our new drive to be laid, but was it worth it! We are very pleased with the way that Dave and team managed to translate my ideas for a more unusual paving scheme into reality. The only drawback is the amount of time we now spend with passers by stopping to admire it!
We would definitely recommend your firm to anyone doing similar work, and please pass on our sincere thanks to your team.
Simon Brooks – 17/03/2016 07:33
– Your website, and evidence of your professional competence – Checkatrade, awards and so on – were very important in getting us started. Your own visit, and the chance to see a driveway of the sort that we thought we wanted, were crucial.
– The delivery

Just had the front driveway and footpath replaced and can say the team did a fantastic job, it’s totally transformed the front garden. We had to wait a while before they started the job but was worth the wait.
Cliff Peet – 14/04/2016 23:43
We had our drive and sideway transformed by a professional, knowledgable team. Thank you to Dave and his team for getting the job in a great time and were a pleasure to have around. We wasn’t sure on the way the steps should go, Dave advised us and are we glad we trusted his experience, Great job and exactly right.
You might have to wait a bit, but that’s because Darren is busy, I would be worried if a company said right we can start next week. Perhaps there is a reason for it ?
Didn’t pay a penny till the job was done, thats the confidence they have that the job is going to be right and you can sleep easy! We have had many compliments on how the front now looks and something to be proud of.
Simon and Leah Hill – 13/01/2016 07:28
I’m not sure anyone relishes the idea of spending thousands on a new driveway or patio -HOWEVER – to say we are thrilled with our new driveway would be an understatement!
We had put off the renovation for too long and looked at quite a few contractors before selecting Darren based on a recommendation. We weren’t wrong.
His foreman Dave and the team were polite punctual and professional from start to finish. Darren was also on hand to deal with queries and niggles, we felt listened to and more importantly guided to make the right decisions based on their experience. They really do listen and care about getting the job done in the way you want so we’re glad to write this and recommend them.
Thank you – we are happier than we thought we could ever be with a new driveway!!
