Ryan provided us with a very reasonable quote for work to fix a damp patch on an interior wall in our dining room. This was a job that needed to be done ahead of wider renovation work and he and his team did it very professionally, quickly and at a good price for us. Excellent communication throughout, very polite and considerate on the day and generally just really straightforward to deal with. No complaints and we’d recommend him to friends and family.

Really great service on a tricky project. We encountered a few issues along the way due to the age of the house but Ryan always knew what to do and was extremely flexible in changing plans and moving around work. Very happy with the finished outcome. Highly recommend.

I contacted Ryan at RB Plastering & Damp-Proofing Ltd after I had a problem with a gas fire installation. The surround had detached from the wall and the company that fitted it blamed the issue on damp, I had had 3 wildly differing estimations from local damp proofing businesses ranging up to £3,500 plus £1,250 the fireplace centre wanted to charge to refit. Ryan visited my home to survey the issue and immediately pointed out that damp was not the cause and the surround had come away from the wall due to a poor standard of installation. This helped me to build a case and now the fireplace centre have agreed to refit, properly and safely without charge. I could not have rectified this issue without Ryan's help and his friendly, professional and honest approach has literally saved me thousands of pounds. There are a lot of unscrupulous traders out there, it has been so refreshing to deal with RB Plastering & Damp-Proofing Ltd and I would like to express my sincere thanks and would highly recommend this business.

Ryan explained everything at the inspection and what works needed to be carried out and followed up with a clear evaluation report. His customer service was excellent on every level. He updated me with the progress and sent photo updates each day which I really appreciated. The work they've done looks fantastic and they did an amazing job. It's finished to a very high standard. I would definitely recommend Ryan to anyone for similar works.

I first contacted Ryan needing further investigation following a survey we had done to a house we were buying. He quickly visited to carry out an inspection, and supplied an in-depth, easy-to-understand evaluation of the state of the house and potential works that might need doing. As someone who hasn't the first clue about these things, I was conscious to use someone trustworthy who would provide an honest evaluation. Ryan did exactly this. He took the time to talk me through what he's found, and made fair recommendations without pressuring us to follow through with the works. On moving into the property, we asked Ryan and the team to carry out some of the more urgent work (clearing sub-floor ventilation). They were very accommodating, fitting us in at short notice, and the team were friendly, efficient and tidy! I wouldn't hesitate to use Ryan again or recommend him to anyone needing any damp proofing works doing on their property.

I found Ryan (RB Plastering and Damp-Proofing) via Which? Trusted Traders and asked him to undertake an inspection at my mum's house in Prestwich (Manchester), following a sale falling through due to concerns raised in a buyer's survey. It was a tricky job as I was expecting a lot to need doing, and we couldn't meet in person as the house is currently vacant and I'm helping to sort this out from Sheffield (where I live). At the time of inspection the covid stay at home order was still in effect. His inspection report was clear and his quote for undertaking damp proofing and timber repairs was competitive, hence we were happy to instruct him to undertake the repairs a month later. Ryan completed the work over 5-6 days. Because the house was vacant, Ryan sent numerous photos each day so we could see the progress. He also called to discuss any decisions that might need making around how/whether to move shelving or the fireplace etc. Ryan was professional throughout the inspection and subsequent works. Always calling my mum or me to talk through his findings, what works necessary and what was 'good to have but not urgent'. His customer service was excellent and works completed to a high standard. I would definitely recommend Ryan for similar works in future.

The best tradespeople we have ever used

We contacted RB plastering and damp proofing back in October when we purchased a house that needed a full damp course treatment. As first-time renovators we were concerned that we needed a trusted tradesman that would not only be reliable but talk us through the process to make sure we understood the do's and don'ts of damp proofing. Ryan came to take a look at the work and quoted us for the work within a week, he talked us through the process really clearly and was on hand to answer any questions, not just at the start of the project but throughout. He was clear, helpful and completely reliable, an experience we've lacked using other tradespeople. We couldn't be happier with the work he'd done and honestly don't think we'll find tradespeople as good as him and his team ever again. They came and did the work providing regular updates and putting us at ease if things of our doing unrelated to the damp proofing didn't go to plan. He's made our renovation journey so much less stressful and we are so grateful that we decided to use his team - we know that we have a reliable tradesman that we can count upon if anything needs fixing in future, which knowing the quality of his work will be very unlikely. I think these reviews are often a deciding factor when asking for quotes and that's why felt it so important to make sure people know just how fantastic RB really are.

Ryan offered a free quote to assess what work needed doing. He advised we had condensation on an internal wall due to no vents on the front and back of the house, and that we also had a small area of rising damp on the chimney breast. The quote was clear and outlined the scope of work and how long it would take. I am very happy with the work that has been completed, all to a very high standard. Vents added to the front and back of the house, damp proofed the internal wall & chimney breast. Then re-plastered both walls. Also included a cost to have a joiner fit new skirting boards. Arrived on time everyday and answered all my questions with detailed answers. Cleaned up after the works were completed. I would highly recommend RB for any plastering/damp proof works.
