I recently bought a house and only after stripping off the wallpaper prior to moving in did I discover extensive damp throughout. Despite being on a tight timescale before I had to move in Ryan managed to fit me in and essentially rebuild my house from the inside damp proofing and plastering a lot of the walls. Ryan and his team were all really tidy and did a brilliant job, even when issues cropped up he got it sorted with no stress and for a really reasonable price. The communication during the job was excellent and he sent me pictures of all the work that was completed each day so I could see the progress. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use again in the future.

We have no hesitation in recommending Ryan and his team at RB Plastering & Damp Proofing Ltd. They did an excellent job damp proofing the property, and the work that his plasterers and joiner did were top quality. Once the plaster was stripped off some problems were discovered, these were dealt with without any fuss by Ryan who, after discussion with us, arranged for an excellent electrician to make safe the electrics in the kitchen, and his team did the remedial work that was needed by the lounge window. We were kept informed on progress during the course of the job , and Ryan responded very quickly to any questions that we had.

I asked RB to give a quote for what I thought was rising damp in my conservatory. He responded to my text immediately and came the following day - a Sunday morning. He used his equipment to test damp levels and said the readings were very low and that nothing needed doing (he suggested we apply anti-damp paint). I can only say a huge thank you for coming and for being genuine. Should we need any damp-proofing or plastering in future, I'll be sure to contact RB.

Our Victorian end terrace needed a dpc,and after reading reviews we called Ryan. He came round and did a thorough investigation of the house,then went on to explain to us the work that needed carrying out. At this time,we asked if he could also skim and plaster the other unaffected walls and also the ceiling. A fully detailed quote was e-mailed to us,including a complete breakdown of works to be carried out etc. A commence date was agreed between us. The team arrived exactly on time every morning,were extremely thorough and cleaned everything up each day. We had an unseen problem with part of the chimney breast,and the team sorted it out immediately. A first class job from a first class team. We have already booked him for another job. Many thanks.

I booked Ryan and his team for a second time as I was very pleased with the work completed on my damp course in Summer 2018. This time, his team replastered my upstairs, boarded the ceiling in my first bedroom, and removed the plaster from the stairwell, reboarded and plastered this area. The quote was detailed and he explained the process, with a breakdown of cost. The cost of the works was as quoted. I definitely recommend Ryan and his team as they are considerate, always go the extra mile, and provide excellent service. The work is more expensive than other plasterers, but without a doubt you will get high quality and will know you are in safe hands.

Damp & Timber Assessment By Ryan at RB Plastering & Damp Ltd
Customer Service
Quality

Due to results from an independent survey carried out on behalf of the Buyer of my property. The surveyor recommended further investigation & I required advice & a quote for any remedial works that may be necessary. I contacted Ryan by phone. He spent a great deal of his time discussing the potential issues. Within 24 Hours Ryan attended my property & did a thorough check.He was knowledgeable, polite, honest & completely put me at ease. He talked through the works required. More importantly, the works which didn't need doing to avoid being charged for costly & unnecessary repairs. Ryan spent a great deal of time explaining the issues he'd found & how to rectify them at a level I was able to understand. Ryan didn't charge me for his visit to assess my property, which he was entitled to do, which inspired great confidence. Within a few hours Ryan forwarded me a written assessment & quote for works, with the opportunity to discuss anything I was unsure about. Ryan & RB Plastering & Damp Ltd fully deserve their Which magazine Trusted Trader Status. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his company to friends & family. Mrs Bernadette Potts-Byrne Salford

I have had several jobs done on my house at the same time and I wish all the teams could have been as professional and hard working as Ryan and his team. From the initial quote right through to the end of several jobs I asked Ryan to do, he has been extremely informative making sure I understand every step of the process and that I was happy with everything. I was amazed at the precision they had when laying the new floor! I totally recommend Ryan and his team for damp proof and plastering works.

We have a property that had a dry rot problem which required the whole of the ground floor to be stripped the problem was so bad. We got 3 contractors to give us a quote, but went with Ryan and his team after doing some research and reading reviews from previous customers and we were not disappointed. Once the work was started we were kept up to date with the progress of the works on a daily basis and the works were completed to a very high standard. Ryan gave us a time frame for the works to be completed and he and his team went above and beyond to ensure this was attained, as we had a tight schedule to adhere to. I cannot recommend this Company enough they went that extra mile for us throughout.

Installed a damp proof membrane to the whole of my party wall in 2 days which involved removal of all the plaster on some walls due to the thickness. Ryan & the guys were on time, friendly & efficient. Ryan explained things to me really well including the extra plastering required. He also said some sections didn't need doing, saving me money and also carried out a few repairs to my patio window seals at no extra cost. Super happy with the job and the joiner did a great job too on the brand new skirting boards. Would recommend Ryan & his team & felt safe with them having access to the house for two days whilst I was at work. Thanks Guys

I am really pleased with the work completed by Ryan and his team - there was a multitude of damp issues in my property and the knowledge and professionalism from RB Damp Proofing was excellent. Ryan kept his team on schedule as I was restricted with when I needed to return to the property. I felt my house was in safe hands and secure while Ryan and his team were working on it and happy in the knowledge that I'd be contacted if there was a decision to be made (e.g. internal wall removing or not). The value for money was excellent and I have since been advised by other tradesmen that the work carried out is of a very high standard. I trust Ryan and his team to carry out further work on my property and will be a returning customer while my property requires continuing renovation. Very happy to recommend to others.

Contacted Ryan after reading reviews, I knew what the damp problem was and upon inspection so did Ryan. All contacts and timelines were kept to, any questions were answered promptly and professionally. The work to my damp wall was carried out in one day, the finish was excellent, all cleaned up before leaving with arrangements made for the joiner to call the day after. The joiners work was equally excellent. Ryan calls after the joiner has been to ensure that you are happy with all work undertaken. It has been a pleasure dealing with Ryan and team, all quotes, agreed works are documented clearly in writing. I would highly recommend R B Plastering and Damp Proofing.

My rental property was suffering with significant rising and penetrating damp issues. I didn't know where to start to fix the problem but Ryan provided very detailed advice, took the time to fully explain every course of action and the various routes we could take. Ryan and his team fitted a new damp course, penetrating damp treatment and improved ventilation system, along with new skirting boards and solving of some electrical issues along the way. The work ran on time and I was provided with updates and pictures throughout so I knew exactly what was going on. The plastering work is of an excellent standard and the house was left tidy and clean. Happy customer.

Ryan and his team were great. I found him online, seemed to have good reviews so I got him round to give us a damp proof survey. He explained everything in an easy to understand way, told me exactly what is needed to fix our problems. Once I had got the survey a couple of days later, we organised a time to get the work done, Ryan was happy to work around my availability. They arrived prompt each of the 3 days of work and left the house in a clean state. I highly recommend Ryan and his team.

Ryan is extremely professional and courteous. He was punctual and came out on a Sunday to provide a quote. He was very clear and honest and took his time to check if any work was required and clearly explained to me the situation. He was totally honest and trustworthy. I thought I may have had a rising damp issue but he explained to me it was not and pointed out the root cause. Honest and passionate about his work and clearly knows his stuff! I would recommend him without hesitation! Thank you.

He did the whole back of my house was affected by damp including an internal joining wall, as well as the wall that was joining the semi-detached house next to me. Ryan was able to do a full investigation and recommended installing a silicone mastic. Out of the 3 people that we contacted for the job, we decided to go with Ryan, he turned up on time, completed it to budget and did a great job and gave me daily updates. He was even able to match up the skirting boards that we had in the rest of the house after he did the work.

When we bought our house, it showed that there were no damp issues so when we moved in, we were shocked to find damp on the floor in the front and back room. We found out about Ryan online, and we chose him out of 9 traders that we had come round as we felt he was the most honest out of all of them. He was the only one to tell us to take up our laminate flooring and take the radiators off the wall so he could do a proper job. He kept us updated daily on the phone and left the rooms clean and tidy every evening. We've also recommended him to our neighbours since he did such a good job!
