Ryan originally came to quote to damp proof the downstairs of the house I had just bought and recommended I go back to my surveyors to complain, as the house clearly had damp problems not picked up by my home buyer’s report. Based on his recommendation I was able to get a chunk of the damp proofing course paid for. The work was carried out to a really high spec by Ryan and his team. They worked incredibly hard, working 13 hours one day to get the job done. Absolute grafters! My house has very uneven walls, given it was built in 1887, and Ryan and his team did the most incredible plastering job to get the walls straight. Ryan really takes the time to explain everything the job entails and to put your mind at rest. He’s always at the end of the phone too if you have any queries or concerns. I am really, really happy with the job he and his team have done and would absolutely recommend to anyone needing a damp proof course.

Ryan and his team completed a full damp course in my living room. The work was initially delayed because of Covid-19, but once rescheduled everything was done well within the timescale and budget. The work was carried out to a high degree of professionalism and to a very high standard. We couldn't be more pleased. Everything was cleared and swept each night, keeping the mess to a minimum., not an easy feat when plaster is involved. Once the job was finished, invoices and guarantee were sent the following day. Ryan made it clear that if we had any problems we should contact him, and while I don't think this assurance would be necessary, it's nice to know. I would definitely recommend this company.

We recently moved home and our survey stated that we needed damp proofing. I've never had to do this before and was very unsure of what was involved. Ryan could not have been more helpful, clear or patient with all my queries! He visited the property before we moved in and provided a very detailed report, he then kindly took me through the report on the phone and even followed up with another visit once we moved in to the property to show us what was needed before the work started. On top of all of this Ryan's quotes were incredibly clear and easy to understand. He broke them down by work that was necessary to do and areas that we may wish to consider in the future. When he met us in the property he also suggested cheaper things that we could do in certain rooms ourselves to test if they worked before getting him to damp proof them (he suggested we invest in a dehumidifier in one room for example rather than charging us to damp proof it). Once the work started Ryan and his team could not have been more professional, thorough or hard working. As an aside - we had to get our home re-wired after it was damp proofed and I overheard the electrician mentioning to his colleague how impressed he was with the quality of plastering that Ryan and his team carried out! It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Ryan and I can not recommended him highly enough.

Kitchen damp-proofing - Excellent!

Ryan has just completed a full damp proof course to our kitchen and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result and impressed with the overall service. From the outset, he turned up to quote when he said he would, the quote was detailed and gave clear instruction as to what we could expect from him and what he needed us to do to prepare the space for them to start work. He was easy to get hold of and happy to answer any questions I had prior to the job starting and turned up exactly when he said he would to start the job. He quoted for 3 days but managed to get it done in 2 and at the end of the first day, gave me a full update as to where they were at and what they planned to do next. The actual finish was brilliant, the plaster work including the edging around the window frames was spot on. Even the electrical sockets were put back on without a mark on them. The kitchen was swept and mopped and all rubbish was taken away. Such a relief to walk back into the house expecting carnage given the nature of the job, only to see it neat and tidy apart from a little dust. On payment he sent a receipt and contractors guarantee immediately - no having to chase for the paperwork. I’m at the end of pretty much a full house renovation (roof, windows, electrics etc ) and out of all the contractors we’ve had, Ryan is the only one I could say was excellent. Thanks so much! Would definitely recommend.

We had a damp-proof membrane installed. RB Plastering gave a clear diagnosis of what was causing the damp and what needed to be done to rectify it. Their communication throughout was exceptional, written quotes, receipts, invoices and guarantee. Also good communication in terms of when they would arrive and how long the work would take.

Ryan and his team completed a damp proof course along the party wall of my house on schedule and within the price quoted. He was recommended by a good friend, who had had work done by Ryan for him and his family. I found Ryan friendly and communicative. He explained what needed to happen in lay terms, which was very helpful. He also advised me about communicating with my neighbour regarding what impact the work might have on them and about how to help the plaster dry out more quickly and how long to leave it before re-decorating. When the team arrived, Ryan showed me the materials they were using for the damp course. He kept me updated with texts and photos of the work at different stages. The handover (of work and keys) between Ryan’s team and the joiner was seamless and I was very happy with his work too. They replaced my skirting boards with good quality skirting boards which match well with the existing ones. After the work was completed Ryan sent more photos, in which I could see that they’d mopped both my living room floor and the kitchen! Furthermore, one of the neighbours mentioned that they’d seen Ryan’s team even sweeping the pavement/ road outside the house. I know people are often concerned when you’re having work done that nails or other debris may be left outside that might puncture their car tyres, so really appreciated them cleaning up outside, as I’ve just bought a house and am new to the street.

Ryan and his team were great. I bought a property recently and knew from the survey that there could be some damp around the back door. Ryan came to inspect this, took readings and gave me a comprehensive explanation of why water was penetrating through and what would be needed to rectify this. He also looked at an upstairs wall for me where I have noticed some minimal symptoms of condensation/damp. I went ahead with the downstairs work at this time. The team were punctual, polite and finished the work beautifully and to schedule. Ryan works with a joiner who came the next morning to replace the skirting boards as agreed and achieved a lovely finish. I would definitely recommend RB Damp Proofing to anyone needing damp inspections or work. And would hire Ryan and the team again when I do any further work of this kind.

Ryan carried out a short survey on my parents’ house which had damp issues. Correspondence with him prior to the survey was very helpful and he arrived promptly as promised. He undertook the survey with professionalism and the results were explained clearly as were his suggested solutions. Ryan was polite , knowledgable and friendly and I am extremely grateful to him for his advice. I would not hesitate to seek his help and advice again.

Had issues with damp in my home but found it hard to find a trader I could trust to rectify the issue. After reading previous comments for RB Plastering & Damp-proofing, I decided to give this company a try and I have not been disappointed. From the moment Ryan arrived to review the issue, his honest and clear advice on what needed doing, made me feel confident I had found the right person. When I decided to go ahead with the work, Ryan and his team arrived when they said they would, kept me updated on progress and, just as important to me, respected the house as my home. The work was completed on time (damp proofing along the side of the house and plastering in the small bedroom), on budget, to a high standard and the work areas cleaned up afterwards. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company and would certainly use them again. Thanks Ryan :)

We honestly cannot recommend Ryan and his team enough. They previously damp-proofed/plastered our living and dining rooms a few years ago, and they recently came back to do the kitchen prior to us having a new kitchen fitted. Ryan and his team turned up on time every day. The work they did is of an exceptionally high standard and we are over the moon with the finished result. They also cleared up after themselves and left the place really tidy - which was pretty impressive given that plastering can be quite a messy job! Ryan was really understanding when we were let down by our builder, which delayed some of the plastering work he and his team were due to do. He was able to rearrange his own work schedule to come back and finish our job once the building work had been completed, so that it didn't cause any problems for our kitchen being fitted. Ryan and his team are friendly, professional and approachable. They are happy to answer questions and explain things really clearly. Ryan also made it clear that we could contact him if we come across any problems further down the line (which we don't expect we will as the work is top-notch, but it's nice to have the peace of mind!). He provided prompt and detailed paperwork (invoices, receipts and guarantee), which is always handy to have. I can't say enough good things about Ryan and his team, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone.
