Worthless Guarantee0.33Verified Review
The company carried out damp treatment/New dampcourse /plastering in early Nov 2019 we reported failure as rising damp had returned .Mr Truss after several requests called and promised to return and resolve the problem. A year later and after a further request to honour the guarantee an agreed appointment was made .On the morning of the appointment an email arrived stating "payment for work was not received until 9/11/09" he claims Truss Preservation do not work on Saturdays and as payment receipt is dated 9th September (Saturday ) and the guarantee was therefore void.Location: CR0
Damp proofer10Verified Review
Alex completed a damp proofing course in my house. It was a very pleasant experience. From the moment he met us, Alex was polite and courteous. He remained so throughout the days he was at our house. Alex kept to the price he quoted us, there were no hidden extras and his work is of a high standard. He also came readily back when I wanted to query something. At the end of the job, he left the house clean and tidy. I would readily work with him again and thoroughly recommend him.Location: KT3
New damp proof course in kitchen wall10Verified Review
An excellent experience from initial quote to completion of job. Alex kept me abreast of progress throughout the two-day job and his attention both to detail and to overall tidiness was exceptional. His workmanship throughout was of the highest quality and we were very pleased with the finished product. I can thoroughly recommend Atruss to anybody having damp problems.Location: SM5

My name is Alex Truss, I'm a 48 year old Damp Proofing specialist based in Carshalton Surrey. I have been specialising in Rising Damp for the last 25 years.
After learning the ropes through my dad who was also in the industry I decided to go solo around 15 years ago and have never looked back.
I work anywhere within South West London , South East London and North Surrey.
I am a sole trader who takes pride in their work. All damp proofing works come with a 20 year guarantee. I put my name to my work and and am proud of delivering an excellent service which would be unrivalled any where else in the industry.
Not only do I specialise in the identification and treatment of rising damp I also deal with issues such and Dry Rot and Wet Rot. Crack Repair with the installation of the helibar and helibeam systems. Basement tanking and waterproofing with systems such as Vandex BB75 and the multicoat Sika1 multi coat system. I am also a first class plasterer and renderer so call me for any work above including floor laying etc.
Please note that I do not deal with condensation or any penetrating damp.
Your works may also need the removal and re-installation of say a bathroom or kitchen units. Don't worry you will be in safe hands.
Please give me a call or email to discuss any damp issues you may have.
