Chris started out nine years ago as a sub contractor in the Damp Proofing industry working for a company  in London, soon realising there were many companies, including some of the reputable larger ones were actually misleading, misdiagnosing and ripping of customers just to keep themselves going and decided that with his training and experience he would start his own company that is honest, hard working and very customer orientated, making sure all aspects are covered and the customer is kept well informed and up to date and gets the results they want. He is now a PCA trained operative, been trained and certified in the use of all damp-proofing materials supplied by Safeguard Europe who supply products like Vandex and Oldroyd and are among the best in Europe in the industry, onward training and certification is a priority for him. 

Ben, his son, joined two years ago and is a fully qualified carpenter and joiner that has ten years experience in the construction industry working mainly on large bespoke new builds, has plenty experience in all aspects of building but prides himself for his woodwork skills, that has seen him make all shapes and sizes of doors and window, mainly in oak and achieve some amazing structural accomplishments.  Both are dedicated to their job and achieving customer satisfaction to build the company on.  Have training and experience to deal with all aspects of damp proofing, condensation, wood boring infestation, timber decay, etc.  The company services estate agents, architects, Landlords, home owners and the commercial sector.
