Damp work

Would recommend. We had damp in our utility room and it had to be tanked and made good. Workmen turned up on time, were polite and worked hard to complete the work on time and budget. This was really important as it was the week before Christmas and any delays would have had a massive impact for our family.

Carried out damp work for me. Everyone - surveyor, office staff, damp crew - were lovely to deal with and did a proper and thorough job. Nothing was too much trouble. All my questions were answered. They are all a flight to deal with and I would have no hesitation using them again.

Tricky work well executed

The work entailed damp proofing two external walls in the lounge. The tradesman arrived on schedule, worked diligently for 4 days, cleaned up carefully afterwards and left us for his next job. He was considerate, amicable and caused minimal disruption to the rest of the house and our lives. One slight area of uncertainty about the specification was easily sorted and the job was finished to a very high standard. I think the most impressive thing was that the one person who came did everything, demolishing, making good brickwork and joinery, treating the walls and finally re-plastering. The re-plastering was particularly impressive because plastering is a skilled job and he did it very well indeed.

Have used them before and would do so again should the necessity arrive. Very efficient and accommodating will always ask for Dale to carry out any further damp proofing work. Tidy and considerate.

The company carried out 3 small jobs for us. They came promptly on the agreed date and finished the work on time. Throughout they were professional and courteous. As the work was not as extensive as originally required they reduced their final invoice to refund the lower cost. Good work and extremely good value.
