Annual maintenance check of damp proofing system and pump

Verified Review

Peter is great. He came promptly, and was very thorough. He takes the time to explain what’s going on and what needs to be done so you feel confident you’re in good hands. There were a few issues with one of the pumps and he immediately arranged for them to be fixed at no cost. I really like the firm in general they are very professional, and seem to take pride in their work, giving you confidence that they are people that you can trust

Damp proof course installation and re-plaster

Verified Review

Garretts are a very efficient service. The team on site are very respectful of your property and skilled in their work. I had some damp rising into some old solid brick walls so Garratts surveyed the required walls and booked in enough time to complete. The team we very helpful and advising on the procedure, covering up items and tenting off areas to keep the dust travel to a minimum. Old plaster removed, damp proofing installation and re-plastering was all to a very high standard. Highly recommended

Install new concrete plinth

Verified Review

I recently had work done on my 1920s property to install a new concrete plinth aroud the front of the house as the old one had deteriorated and I had concerns of possible rising damp. Jack came and performed the survey which I received promptly the same day. Chris was sennt to install the new plinth. What a diamond ! An absolute gentleman! Very personable,  punctual and tidy. The quality of Chris's work was truly exceptional. Friends and neighbours have commented on how good the new plinth looks. I would not hesitate in recommending using this Company.
