We undertook a major renovation (full reclad) of our home with DBS. Dan and his team did a fantastic job and we are thoroughly pleased with the end result. In a project like this there are always going to be issues that come up, and these were always navigated and resolved by DBS. The team were hardworking, respectful and communicated clearly. If an issue came up they would discuss this with us and take us through the options. I would definitely recommend DBS and would happily use them again for any future projects.
Dan and his team fixed some timber rot and cladding that had failed on our 1970’s home in Glenfield. The guys were amazing to deal with. Very knowledgeable, hard working, and thorough. A very comprehensive job completed by the team and we are very happy with the outcome. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
I contracted Dan and his team for a bathroom renovation. Right from the first phone call the entire team bent over backwards to be flexible and work with my changing timelines. They were knowledgable, helpful and I was really happy with the end result in my bathroom. They communicated with me throughout the project and everything went as planned. I would use DBS Residential for any future projects I have.
DBS Residential recently completed a retaining wall in my basement. Thanks to Dan and Brett for a job well done. The guys responded quickly to my request for work to be done and worked extremely efficiently and thoroughly once the work got started. The end result is a quality job by a professional team. Highly recommended.

Dan and his guys worked long and hard with a high level of communication and professionalism problem solving from start to finish. They were extremely accomodating of our young kids while working inside and out.
My wife and I both felt the right decisions were being made with all transparency & options presented to us for consideration through out the entire process.
We would thoroughly recommend Dan and his team to anyone and are happy and satisfied customers. TY DBS R.
Many thanks to Dan, Steve and all the team at DBS with the completion of our bathroom renovation.
The recent Auckland lockdowns threw up some challenges but DBS got everything done quickly and to a high standard.
We did go over our planned budget, but with renovations you always have to factor those possibilities in!
Dan and his Crew were an awesome outfit to work with.
We had a roof leak, with an unknown extent of the damages. DBS were responsive and quick to mobilize their team to fit us into their busy schedule. They kept us across and aware of the project scope and estimates as we reached key milestones. They managed all the subtrades and organised works well. This included scaffolding, carpentry, roofing, gib/painting, demo, etc.
When we did have issues, we were able to contact Dan directly and he was quick to resolution and ensured that any concerns or problems were fixed and adjusted. Things don’t always go as planned, so having this transparency, access and communications was appreciated.
I would use DBS again and highly recommend this outfit. They’ve earned my trust which is hard to come by in an industry fraught with cowboys.
The lads at DBS Residential completed a 10 week building renovation project at our 100 year old villa – a new kitchen, bathroom and laundry. There were quite a few surprises and Jase & Ryan worked hard through the difficulties. They were always on time, easy to have around and were obviously highly skilled. Everything was explained to me during the build. I really appreciated that. They levelled foundations and laid a new matai wooden floor, removed walls, built new ones, opened new doorways, replaced an exterior wall bottom plate, upgraded steel beams with new fixings amongst other things and brought everything up to compliance with council requirements.
I can highly recommend DBS Residential and will certainly choose to use them again in the future. Thanks for the mahi.
NB. The renovation was Project Managed by Rod at Nicol Renovations,
Dan Hendy at DBS residential was a great help at all stages of our minor home reno project. The project involved creating a new bedroom, moving walls and closing in a porch area to form a bigger lounge.
He made good suggestions at the design phase, and was always responsive during the build phase.
As a first timer at the reno game he walked us through the Council consent requirements and the final council inspection passed with no problems.
The tradies he used were all reputable and got the job done to a high standard.
Would recommend highly.
The guys at DBS did a fantastic job on our deck and it came out better than we could have imagined. Would highly recommend them to friends.
DBS was a very reliable team who sorted all our landscaping out they had great ideas to ensure the end result was perfect. The communication with us was top notch and the lads were super friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend and use these guys again.
DBS Residential completed work to replace a set of outdoor stairs for me. They arrived when they said they would, worked hard, were respectful, and tidied up after themselves. I am very happy with the work completed.
Excellent quality work (complex deck build and retaining wall/ remodelling). Staff are consistently pleasant, respectful and friendly – aiming to cause minimum upheaval. Excellent communication and craftsmanship. Highly recommend.
Very impressed with the quality of workmanship and speed of completion of our deck balustrade replacement. Thanks guys👍
Very good quality work and great ideas for attractive improvements.
Awesome team of builders, amazing craftsmanship and I high level of professionalism. Would recommend DBS to anyone wanting a project done big or small!
Great team, high standard of work. Got good advice from Dan throughout the project. Very happy with the finished product. Highly recommended!
We needed a few home improvement projects done. Dan made time to meet with us to listen and provide us with great advise and to help generate realistic yet creative ideas to add aesthetics and value to our home. We are extremely happy with our classy home improvements.
Dan and his team work to a high standard, following building regulations and keeping you well-informed of their progress. DBS Residential provide quality service with high levels of professionalism and communication.
DBS Residential comes highly recommended as they have exceeded our high expectations!
Friendly team, easy communication and an amazing job! Thanks guys
DBS fixed our leaky shower, even though it was a small job they were happy to help and made it simple and stress free. Dan and team are great, excellent communication and quality workmanship.
Our New deck has completed the look to our traditional style home here in Tindall’s Bay. Our neighbors love it and we now have a classy area to enjoy the Summer.
Thank you to the team and DBS Residential who transformed the front of our home. Dan kept in touch right the way through, even while becoming a dad in the middle!
Fabulous service. Helped us out on a tight time frame and nothing was a problem even with having to work in challenging circumstances with an office fit out. Honest guys and great to work with.
Highly recommend !!! High quality job!
Thank you very much DBS Residential. We were verbally recommended DBS and Dan responded immediately to get the ball rolling. Although the job of replacing our front entry stairs to our home became a larger job then we expected, we are stoked with the final result. The new stairs look fantastic and with a few more tweaks from our end, in the form of plants etc, so will our newly replaced front garden. Thanks again guys.
DBS team are the most professional hard working tradies we have dealt with. Nothing was a problem and now we can say we are proud of how awesome our outdoor space is on our property. Thank you for listening and making our vision a reality
DBS Residential recently completed a kitchen, laundry and living room renovation and my wife and I are very happy with the end result. Dan was a pleasure to work with, communicated well and made the process easy and stress free. Once the ball was rolling everything came together quicker than we expected which was a bonus. All of Dan’s team and sub-contractors did a great job and offered advice and solutions throughout the process. Although this was a small job in the scheme of things, we felt like it was treated with the same importance as any of the bigger jobs DBS R had on the go. Overall, we’d highly recommend DBS Residential and we’ll happily use them again when we get around to doing the rest of the house.
