Damp-proofing and replastering of 18th century chimney breast
Customer Service

We used DB&I in 2015 to carry out extensive damp-proofing work to the ground floor of our Grade 2 listed property (part 18th, part 19th century). They were 1st class from start to finish, whether on admin/communication or quality of work carried out, tidying up during the works or professionalism of tradesmen. This recent work addressed areas that could not be treated in 2015 and DB&I's standards have not slipped. Dale was excellent and discussed the work as it progressed, rather than just carrying on in a blinkered fashion. We are delighted with the end result!

Damp proofing work in porch

Danford Brewer & Ives have done work for us before and we were happy to ask them to carry out further damp proofing work on an area which had not required treatment previously. The work done was in the porch area of our house and was carried out efficiently,on schedule and within the agreed budget. The men carrying out the work were very helpful, tidy and professional.They explained what they were doing and advised how long we should leave it before decorating. We would not hesitate in recommending them to others who need to have damp proofing work completed. We were also impressed with the efficiency and politeness of dealing with the request for a inspection visit and the timing of the schedule to complete the work.

The whole process from my original enquiry to the completion of the job was smooth and hassle free. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The work was carried out on time and the workers were very careful, protective covers were put down to keep the mess to a minimum and the work area was cleaned up well afterwards. I was pleased with the end results. Thank you very much.

We’ve had work done by Danford Brewer & Ives before and on both jobs they’ve been efficient with their booking, prompt with their surveying and both the jobs were done very neatly without mess, by polite and friendly tradesmen. We would recommend Danford Brewer & Ives for damp proof work.

The work was carried out by a very professional chap called Corin and was done promptly, within budget and was very organised and he left the room in a clean and tidy condition. I was very happy with the damp work and would recommend the Company. Corin was helpful and had good communication.

Excellent service from start to finish. Work done promptly and cleanly and included disconnecting a radiator which other damp proofers said I’d have to arrange a plumber for. Very competitively priced. Highly recommended

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.
