Damp Proofing Solutions attended my property for a downstairs bathroom damp problem, the assessor was excellent arrived on time carried out tests and explained the problem and solution they could offer. I was advised of the price which is exactly what I paid. The work was completed on time in one day and work team arrived on time on the day the work was carried out. The workers were very efficient, clean, tidy, polite and very friendly and helpful. The work face did an excellent job of cleaning up after the work was finished.

After having issues with another company, Adam came over and conducted a survey on our property, running through options and a day or two later a quote was provided. The whole process from start to finish was very professional, and the workers came in on time, worked hard and left the place clean. Adam and his team get a 5-star rating, and I would highly recommend them. Quality service, friendly service and will use them again for future projects. Thank you, guys!

DPS were professional from the very first contact with them. The survey was thorough, and the work carried out exactly as per the survey. Appointments were always kept exactly on time. The team who carried out the work were friendly and professional, including dealing with a question from a neighbour courteously.

We had an issue with our Damp Proof Course, there wasn't one so our Victorian terraced house had damp walls and Adam came out for a survey explained what was needed to be done. We booked them in ASAP and went away on holiday. Upon our return the damp plaster had been removed thixotropic DPC injected both horizontally and vertically, 2-part bonded membrane system installed, dryline with thermal insulation plaster to smooth finish to areas blending into existing plaster line. The guys did a great job with an amount of dust left behind, but not as much as we'd expected. All waste had been removed and rooms were left clean and now it's just a matter of letting it dry and decorate.

An efficient professional service from the initial survey by Stuart to completion - on schedule and budget. No patronising responses to questions I asked about the process. Excellent teamwork. Impressed by Tom and Luke - great personalities, good attitude and hard workers.

We suspected that we had a damp issue with some external rendering and internal porch walls at the front of our house, so we contacted DPS as they were recommended by which as a Trusted Trader. We were very impressed with this company from first contact. From our initial telephone enquiry, to the site visit and quote and finally the work carried out, all staff were professional, respectful (of us and our property) and friendly. They are completely transparent, explaining everything in detail. The price was fair, they cleared up after the job. We were very satisfied and would fully recommend based on our experience.

I needed some work done in a lounge, hallway and study room. Damp Proof Solutions have massively impressed me with the quality of their service. Always on time (7.30 am daily), Knowledgeable, efficient, great work ethic and friendly - I highly recommend them. Very satisfied with the work that has been carried out. Even the plasterwork has been done to a mirror finish. They clean as they go and have left no mess behind. In a world full of unreliable tradesmen, they are a Godsend. Big thank you to Stuart, who managed the team of four gents. From the start of the process, communication was transparent and clear. Everything was described and explained, as well as how polite he is! Thank you!

Hard selling of a single product solution

We paid for a 'survey'. The salesman ran his damp meter over the walls of our Georgian house and declared that in 4 rooms we would have to have the wallpaper stripped off, the plaster removed and replaced, bitumen applied and a plastic membrane, all at a cost of over 5 thousand pounds. He did not mention other approaches and his response to technical questions was that "I've been doing this for 30 years and it works." A subsequent survey from another Which trader suggested external water mitigation solutions and re-plastering as sufficient. He also felt that the damp meter was being thrown off by a metal foil applied to the first meter of the wall as damp went no higher than this. Damp Proofing Solutions appear to be charging for high-pressure sales calls not 'surveys' and not behaving ethically by only offering a single solution.

We're sorry to hear you were disappointed with our survey. Sadly, we were unaware of your disappointment until we read your review just now. We do have an excellent reputation for customer service & had you come to us with your grievances, we could have discussed any concerns and misunderstandings to achieve a mutually satisfying resolution. We would like to take this opportunity to point out the following. 1,Our surveyors are not high pressure sales people. They are not paid on commission basis so have no reason to behave that way. We provide accurate, no obligation costings for our work proposals & ask that you contact us should you wish to proceed. Following that all paperwork is sent out for your approval before any work is complete, there is no pressure involved whatsoever. 2,A foil type paper can obscure a moisture reading in a substrate but there are methods to gain accurate readings despite this, which our surveyor carried out during the visit. The external finish of the property is of a good condition, with no apparent defects. There is no evidence to suggest that the property’s damp issues are linked to water mitigation as you mentioned. 3,We understand you were looking for a short term solution, however this is not something we are willing to do. We will not compromise on quality, which is why, we believe, the proposal suggested to you by our surveyor, is the best and only viable solution to the problem. Please contact our office if you would like to discuss.
