What customers say about our workmanship and service

We are the best drainage and groundworks company in the North East and we'd like to think you would trust us and take our word for it. However, we know that isn't always going to persuade you; therefore we ask our customers to submit a testimonial, if they have time, to tell you for themselves how we have been able to help them and whether or not they would recommend us to you.

DGS Limited came to my home one morning when I woke to find the kitchen had a really bad smell and each time I ran the tap the smell got worse. They came out within the hour and cleared my drain outside which cleared up the problem straight away. There was no callout fee just labour to clear the blockage. Well recommended.
– Laura Johnson
Very polite and friendly. Used the camera to illustrate the problems and made recommendations. Not at all pushy. All repairs carried out and again used the camera to show us what they had done. Left everywhere clean and tidy. Would recommend.
– Claire
Called with a blockage, arrived within 10 minutes, blockage cleared immediately. Friendly, helpful and service with a smile. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
– Helen Fletcher
Splendid work from the team at DGS. I couldn't clear a blockage in our bathroom which seemed to be somewhere in the waste pipe. It took DGS 35 minutes to get someone to my home and I was charged nothing for the callout and just £34 for their time to remove the blockage. Found at top of Google and would definitely recommend.
– Harold Williams
Thanks lads. Washing machine was not draining water away through the pipe leading outside. Took them 10 minutes to fix the issue and saved me hundreds as I was about to buy a new washer.
– Lewis Evans
I contacted DGS as they were top of Google and had a range of very good reviews. We were extending our house and needed to route new drainage for a bathroom. I only wanted them to fit the waste system for the bathroom but they were able to provide services for the complete plumbing too. Looks amazing now it is all done. Thanks for your hard work.
– Alan Harvey
Very pleased with our new patio and decking.
– Jim Hudson
Really grateful for coming to see us today. I nearly clicked on the first over priced website I came to but so glad I looked around. I would highly recommend DGS Limited for their callout time, workmanship and value for money.
– Rebecca Homes
Outstanding groundworks team providing an exceptional service. Planning, communication and hands on labour were all second to none. We contracted DGS to plan and implement a private road which they did with professionalism, from drawings to finish the work was great.
– Billy Pearce
10 out of 10 - Brilliant work thanks.
– Phil
Great job today thank you. Blocked sink drain which was causing a really bad smell in the house. Unblocked and flushing within an hour. Only cost us £44 which was much cheaper than anyone else online.
– Jimmy
Good service from DGS, unblocked my sink, great price would use again.
– Tony
I called DGS this morning when we woke up to find the garden under water after last nights heavy rain. It wasn't flowing down the drain and despite my husband attempting to get his hand down there he couldn't clear the blockage. The gents at DGS came out within the hour to investigate, they investigated the problem and and removed all of the leaves that were clogging the drain. The service was fast, reliable, friendly and much cheaper than other firms I had called who couldn't visit until the next day. Thank you.
