About Us

Since 1989

DG Joinery & General Building was established in 1989 by David Bentley. The company began carrying out small joinery works and general building repairs using a solid client base David had established from his previous employment.

The need for his joinery and building services rapidly developed. After a few years of trading it was apparent the company needed to develop further. In 1992 the company completed its first domestic extension. From this point onwards domestic extension works has been the backbone of the company, taking on larger projects as the years went by.

In 2000 the company completed a small development of two three bedroom detached properties and since then has completed a further nine new build properties.

In 2004 Paul Bentley joined the company bringing with him a wealth of experience and contacts from his commercial construction background.

So whether it’s a new build project, domestic extension (small or large), loft conversion works, a kitchen or bathroom refurbishment or a simple building repair, DG Joinery and General Building Contractors are the local company you can rely on.

Based in Newark Nottingham, we can carry out projects further afield in Nottingham, Lincoln, Grantham, Bingham, West Bridgford, Radcliffe On Trent, Southwell, Trent Valley and villages in between.

making a start

If your looking to get your project started then it couldn’t be more simple. Simply get in touch with us on 01636 525465 and we can arrange for Paul to come and speak to you. There are just a few handy pieces of information that would help us make your dreams a reality. 


Do you know what kind of finish and style you’d like to go for? Have you seen images on social media, in magazines or from friends and family that you might want to get inspiration from? 


Knowing how long a project can go on can be a determining factor in what we can do. For example, you may want an extension completed for Christmas ready for the family coming over. This may not be possible when starting in September.


Budget shouldn’t be a bad word. It’s important for both parties that we can see the affordability of a project before we begin. We know from experience that understanding a project’s cost is essential.

Our first visit can take anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the project. We get to understand your requirements in detail to help us solve your problems.

Showing our understanding

At the end of the day

Once the project comes near to it's end, we will snag the whole job from start to finish. This will be the smallest and largest aspects of the job, 'no stone goes unturned' as the saying goes.
