I recently had Timberwise come round to look at a small problem of rising damp in the kitchen (less than a square metre). I had already had a quote of £850, but decided to try timberwise based on their reviews. It costs £150 for them to conduct a survey, which consisted of Keith Defoe spending 10 minutes before leaving.I then received a quote of over £3200 to damp proof a square metre and re-plaster. The quote was four times the other quote.

Timberwise recently carried out a damp proof course and re-plastering in our Victorian conversion property. We had several quotes and we chose Timberwise as they were very professional, honest and good value for money. We received a wide range of quotes from other companies, from £1,000 to £6,000 all detailing that the damp was appearing in different places and that different amounts of work were required. Timberwise are extremely knowledgeable about what needs to be done and will happily explain all the reasons to you as well. The approach and evident expertise of Robert Matthews, the surveyor, made us feel very comfortable and reassured that the work quoted for was only what was required (not what we'd received from other companies who had quoted for a lot of unnecessary work). Although we had to pay for a Timberwise survey, most of this cost was deducted from the work carried out and was much more comprehensive than any of the previous surveys had been. Therefore, this has actually saved us a significant amount of money. In all, the team hacked off plaster to a height of about 1m in every room, inserted a damp proof course and re-plastered. The walls look incredibly neat and the team were very tidy, punctual and polite. They also refitted one of our floorboards which was broken without us asking, which just goes to show that they will really go the extra mile to offer top quality service. Really lovely people, we had to leave to go to work and happily left our house keys with them for the duration of the work. They were always good at locking up and making sure the place was secure. Connie at head office and Robert Matthews the surveyor both made the whole process from start to finish very simple and painless. We were kept informed every step of the way and there were no surprises. Extremely pleased with not only the service of Connie and Robert, but also the excellent work the team completed and the fantastic value. We have no hesitation recommending Timberwise.

I can thoroughly recommend Timberwise to give you an honest assessment of what work is really necessary and whether you actually need to pay out for very expensive damp-proofing. I had 6 firms look at my shower-room. Timberwise stood out as the only honest broker. Their excellent Surveyor Keith Defoe suggested I put a de-humidifier in the room for a few weeks to see if I could resolve the problem. In the meantime he gave me a quote both for full tanking and for a cheaper solution of applying a liquid damp proof membrane. He was happy to come back 2 months later to re-survey and told me the room was fine and didn't need treatment. Some surveyor's charged just to come out and the others would happily have taken £3000 or more to carry out unnecessary work to my room which incidentally had received a damp course treatment several years before. I expressed my surprise/delight at their approach and Mr Defoe told me they think honesty is the best policy. Going forward I would only use Timberwise for this type of work - I've had damp-proofing installed in two properties by two other installers one of whom has since gone bust. The other, Kenwood, I would certainlynot recommend.
