Excellent insulation, building & roofing work

We are delighted with the work completed by Eco-Tiffin. We wanted to upgrade the insulation in our home and to integrate this work with the installation of solar panels. We began the process with a thermal survey and a discussion of the recommendations. The discussions were not hurried or pushy and it took a few months before we agreed the scope of works. We were especially keen to find a company to oversee the integration of the various aspects of the works. Having agreed to go for the 'Tiffin duvet effect', the various teams of carpenter, electrician, plumber, brickies and roofers came and did most of the work from the outside, keeping disruption to a minimum. The teams were smartly dressed, tidy and considerate. We hoped that the house would be warmer this winter. We are delighted to say that the house is draft free, warmer and less humid. The work has all been carried out neatly and to a high standard and it all looks great inside and outside. It actually looks better than we had imagined it would. We are very happy to recommend Eco-Tiffin.

Very pleased with the work carried out. We had a damp problem, Eco Tiffin investigated, provided advice and then completed work to budget and in accordance with agreed timescales. They clearly understand historic (listed) buildings and the specialist type of work needed to maintain them properly.

Disappointing survey
Customer Service

Engaged this company to do a survey with regards to our loft: assess the potential to convert to habitable space and insulate. The surveyor who arrived was under the impression that we were having a damp problem (no, and never even mentioned), so I ended up printing my original email request to ensure that were were on the same page. Survey seemed to go well, but when I received the report a week later I was thoroughly disappointed: apart from a few minor factual errors, the survey report itself consisted of 17 pages, 8 of which comprised the generic boilerplate "Assumptions & Conditions" that were by far the most detailed part of the report; one title page and one Declaration page (that was essentially an invitation to write a blank cheque); 2 other pages; and 6 actual survey pages, at least half of which consisted of photos. The survey text itself was in the style of a mediocre undergraduate thesis with platitudes about damp, climate, and various other things. There were also observations about the potential for development, but very few specifics, no concrete or systematic action plan or similar proposal for next steps. I contacted both the original surveyor and, 5 days later, the company's general contact to give them an opportunity to comment, but have still not heard back from either. Altogether a poor experience and not worth the £300 that was charged for it.

I have had used Tiffins for various projects and building issues over the last few years and Robert’s team always complete a project to the highest standard. Most recently have consulted Robert on a worrying issue of damp and he has provided his usual wealth of expertise to help me to resolve the problem without the need for costly repairs. Would highly recommend.

Insulation and maintenance works - Highly Recommended

The team from Eco Tiffin carried out insulation work on our house plus other repairs and maintenance work. We are really pleased with the end results. We first contacted Eco Tiffin after enduring many chilly winters in our 1930’s house and finally decided it was time to do something to improve it – but we didn’t really know where to start. We booked an energy assessment survey and Robert went through the results in full detail. He recommended the priorities to fix the main issues. We also needed to deal with some other repairs and after a few more site visits and answering all our many questions we settled on a planned set of works to address the insulation and maintenance issues. The team were great to have around. The works were well-organised and progressed quickly. Aaron and David kept us updated on what they had done and what was happening next. The team kept the site tidy, cleaned up each evening and did their best to minimise the disruption while the work was ongoing. The work completed has been done to a very high standard and there is a huge improvement now in the warmth of our bathrooms and bedrooms following the insulation work. Plus the house looks much better now too. Early indications are showing a reduction in the amount of energy we are using to heat the house. It will be interesting to see the difference over time but we can tell that the house is retaining heat much better now and also we no longer get condensation in the bathroom.

I had a damp problem with my kitchen wall, which affected the back door and made it difficult to open and shut except at the height of summer. I had various people look at it, without getting a solution. Mr Tiffin clearly knew his stuff and to my great relief the problem is now solved. His workmen were very competent, friendly and helpful. Apart from replastering the wall they also planed down the back door and put a flexible draught strip in it. I delayed leaving a review in case the damp problem came back in the winter, but it's still fine, despite the considerable amounts of rain we've had recently. Mr Tiffin is businesslike and competent.

Eco Tiffin redecorated the exterior of my property and damp proofed the interior. They replaced guttering. Their work was very high quality and the workmen on site were trustworthy and efficient.

Resolving the endless damp kitchen saga

For many years I have had a problem with damp in the kitchen of my Victorian terraced house. Several builders told me to leave well alone unless I wanted a lot of upheaval, but when I eventually decided to replace the old kitchen the time was right. I asked three specialist damp firms to quote. EcoTiffin was the most professional and authoritative from the start, and more importantly the only one prepared to project-manage the whole job from start to finish, so I didn't have to find individual tradesmen with all the added complications that would entail. They correctly identified the cause of the problem, suggested various ways of improving the ventilation and drainage to avoid future problems and put me in touch with a great kitchen company where I could choose exactly what I wanted at a very reasonable price. Robert and his team were a pleasure to work with -- always at the end of a phone line, efficient, considerate, tidy... all the things you hope for but don't necessarily get. To complicate matters, the March lockdown was announced just one week after the job started, but we kept in touch and, as soon as it was safe to do so, work resumed. I am thrilled with my new kitchen and am confident that I am now well and truly damp-proofed.

Eco Tiffin did some work on our house over the summer. They installed a astro turf lawn, levelling the ground first. They repaired our patio and installed new gutters, painted the exterior of house and insulated one of the exterior walls. The quality of the work was excellent and the project was completed on time. I would highly recommend Eco Tiffin

We had general concerns about our mid-terraced Victorian home and wanted to learn more about the condition of the property and where we could improve or fix what existed. Robert came around and walked and talked us through it all and put our mind at ease noting how some things such as better ventilation could improve the quality of our home. The condition report was detailed and gave a good estimation of prices to fix or improve things. Highly recommend.
