Which?Trusted Traders recommendations:

  • Thank you for a superb service

    Andrew was fantastic and we really appreciate his honest and well thought out advice. Best wishes

  • Clear quote, work carried out cleanly and quietly

    Really pleased with the service I received. Andy and Iréne went out of their way to help me meet a very tight timeline to get estimates on the work.

    The quote was very clear, broken down by individual tasks and price. When the work started Andy and Simon explained the timelines and what will be happening, were happy to discuss any questions I had.

    They tidied up after themselves each day and tried to reduce their impact on us as much a possible, which was really appreciated. They also helped me with another issue I had before wrapping up the main job which was great.

    Overall super impressed, would recommend fully and without hesitation.

  • Excellent Work

    Excellent Work carried out, friendly and reliable service, once job completed the room was clear and left clean, would highly recommend them.

    Customer in Kent 2021

  • Very Professional and Hard Working

    We moved into a big old house and discovered a wealth of work that needed doing urgently. Andrew and Simon had a giant list of external and internal work to get through including wood repairs, damp, guttering, insulation, woodworm repairs. They did it all efficiently and with great care and workmanship. They are highly professional, skilled at what they do and super friendly.

    They went above and beyond both in the work they carried out but also the advice and clarity of the schedule

    Customer in Kent 2021

  • Excellent team and work

    We have had an excellent experience from start to finish. We had a damp survey done followed by the work needed - all done to a very high standard by a very professional and friendly team who have been really helpful with very effective communication.

    Amy, Kent, 2020

  • Highly professional

    Andy turned up on time and got to work quickly. He kept us up to date with the work. What he doing and why he was doing it. The work done was very good and we were given advice about future maintenance and use. We have booked him to come back for some more work!

    Mark, Kent, 2020

  • Prompt and professional.

    After a prompt and professional assessment a discussion of the issues, details of work involved, timescale & costs were given both verbally and in writing. Some joists and plates were replaced, new flooring laid & spraying for woodworm carried out.

    Work started & finished on time and to budget. Friendly & helpful throughout. Rubbish removed & paperwork given as promised. All in all a good job done!

Older properties may not have been built with a damp proof course or, as is sometimes the case, the existing damp proof course may have broken down over time, or have become "bridged".
