Company info

My name is Alex Truss , I'm a 47 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 with 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. Dont worry you will be in safe hands. 

Please give me a call or email to discuss any damp issues you may have.

Damp proofing and French drains

Verified Review

Alex was professional, tidy and got on with the job. He did a fantastic job all for a very good price. His labourer was sick all week and he still managed to complete the job on time. Cannot fault him. 10/10.

Alex was efficient in carrying out the damp survey that I requested on short notice to help me make a decision on the purchase of the property. I will definitely use him again for any damp related job.

Damp proofing and plastering

Verified Review

I got Alex‘s contact from Checkatrade. After getting my call, he arranged a site visit in next day. He found out the dampness and the extent of problem easily. As I have to move into my house at the end of November and per my request, Alex provided a quote at that night and worked on Satuarday and Sunday in order to meet my target date. He is professional, full of experience and managed the work well in a tight timeframe. The works completed with neat and high standard. My wife and I have really appreciated for Alex’s workmanship. Highly recommend Atruss.
