We were really happy with the deck and fence; the quality was outstanding and the builders doing the work were incredibly friendly.
We couldn’t believe how fast the work was carried out.
The little surprise table the guys built for our toddler was the most gorgeous addition! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Duncan Building Services to other
