About

Established in 2003, I have been running continually since then with hundreds of properties treated across the South East. Including domestic commercial and historical buildings, which have been satisfactory treated for woodworm, dry rot and rising damp. Over several inspections of properties treated back in 2003, have shown no signs of re-infestation.

The company is a full member of Sovereign Chemicals Preserving and Damp-proofing Association and as such, is governed by it's strict requirements as to the quality of workmanship and materials used on all our contracts. Work completed by us will be guaranteed in accordance with our usual standard procedure.

Much of the success of Avant-Garde is attributable to commitment to quality workmanship and service. The belief in striving to be the best is communicated throughout the company.
Please call me for free advice, for all aspects of the above,

We did not use Avant Garde directly but they arranged for an independent surveyor to come and assess our problem we had with a damp patch. A lovely, very helpful surveyor came and straight away he knew that our damp was not serious and told us what the cause was and how to sort the damp patch out. It turns out we only need a good plasterer to hack off then re plaster with some water proofing in the plaster. For such a small job the surveyor advised us to go to our regular plasterer with the above advise and said that Avant Garde would have said the same thing. This only cost us £50 + VAT which we very happily paid to reassure us after having many other builders around giving many different and contradictory opinions of what had caused the problem and what the remedy would be, mainly that we needed to have the damp proof course redone and that just wasn't needed. If we had gone with one of these builders we would have wasted money and the problem may not have been solved. We will definitely keep the surveyor, Oliver Walker, as well as Ben Sullivan at Avant Garde in our address book for the future and would quickly recommend both to others.

I had a problem with fungus in the floorboards in a spare room. Ben did an excellent job for me providing a reasonable estimate and carrying out both the investigation and the remediation work. The work was done in the time estimated despite some unforeseen problems with the existing wall. Everything was tidied up nicely afterwards and I was kept informed of progress all the way through. I am happy to recommend Avant Garde.

We contacted Ben about possible dry rot and he recommended we had a survey carried out. Two areas of wet rot caused by external soil being higher than our damp proof course were identified. Avant Garde then carried out remedial work as per quote speedily and efficiently. We have since passed on their name to our neighbours who were suffering with a similar problem.

Avant Garde Damp Solution rectified a damp problem in the bedroom wall at 2 St Mary Abbots Place, Kensington, London. The job, from initial survey and diagnosis of the problem until completion and clean up, was carried out most effectively. The work took three days and was on schedule and as budgeted in the detailed quote. The price quoted, professionalism, helpfulness and ongoing communication were well ahead of anything offered by alternative tradesmen consulted.

We contacted Ben prior to the purchase of our property to arrange a damp survey. We were happy with the work suggested and once the sale completed we asked him to carry out the works. Ben was helpful and friendly and the work was carried out efficiently and we are very pleased with the result. We spent a lot of time looking for a damp specialist who was not going to sell us a lot of unnecessary work and were very pleased to find Avant Garde - highly recommended.

Damp in basement

Paolo: We (my brother and sister) had ongoing issues within our basement area for a property that we rent. We called Avant Garde and spoke to Ben Sullivan who organised an independent surveyor to come round and assess the situation. A full report was then given along with options to resolve these long standing issues. Work was carried out to a very high standard and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or family. ------- Rob: I have a basement flat with constant damp problems in different areas of the flat over many years. Avant Garde came to assess the problems and have done a great job fixing them including tanking a wall fixing cracks letting water in the building and a leak from an upstairs shower. This involved some building works plastering removing and refitting a radiator and as of 7 months later I am yet to have any problems. We also have a 10 year guarantee for the works to keep us satisfied there will be no issues. All the workers were very friendly and had good working practices.
