We instructed Ray Baker to undertake a damp and timber assessment of our property, after having read the many favourable reviews on this site, and Ray certainly lived up to expectations. He provided a helpful summary on the day, and a detailed report the following day, with recommendations and suggestions. We now can address the problem of condensation with confidence. We would definitely recommend Ray.

Ever since using Ray's services to investigate potential wood worm infestation in a property in Sussex years ago we have taken advantage of his impressive expertise for our subsequent house moves, allowing us to make informed decisions on our purchases. Unlike your typical survey, Ray's reports are very thorough, written with the home owner in mind, easy to understand, helpful and jam-packed with his knowledgeable advice. His survey reports provide an independent health check on a property, giving complete peace of mind. We are so extremely grateful for the reassurance and guidance that Ray has provided us with - even months after the initial report. We found his services to be absolutely invaluable!

Ray is fantastic. We have used him on several occasions and his reports have always been prompt, detailed, knowledgeable and helpful, and he has always been very happy to provide follow-up advice if needed. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an independent damp surveyor.

Mr Baker provided a very competitive quote and could do the work next day, followed by the report one day later. Communication was excellent: we could get a few things in the report clarified right away when we got it. We can recommend ARS Ltd.

Ray did damp and thimber survey on my property and he did a brilliant job. First of all they were very responsive and quick in booking the survey. He sent me the report the next day he did the survey. The report was very detail with lots of suggestions on how to reduce the humidity level in the building. Overall very happy with their service and highly recommend them.
