    The gentleman who came to look at the problem explained what was causing the dampness in the house. It was not rising damp, as I had been told by two other companies, but condensation and recommended I had a Humidistat fitted in the kitchen and in the bathroom. The men who came out to do the work were very careful not to make any mess in the house and were extremely polite. Problem now solved!

Company info

Established since November 1987, we've been specialising in Damp-proofing and Timber Preservation Treatment in Devon, Somerset and Dorset for almost 34 years and like to say we're large enough to cope yet small enough to care.  Many of our clients come via Estate Agents, when buyers have received a home buyer or mortgage report highlighting damp issues and/or timber infestation.  We will inspect the property and provide (within 24 hours) a comprehensive report/drawing with recommendations for remedial treatment and quotation.

As members of the DPA (Damp Proofing Association), property inspections are undertaken by a PCA Qualified Certified Surveyor in Remedial Treatment (C.S.R.T.) and all work is carried out by time-served, operatives to Damp-proofing and Timber Preservation Treatment Industry Standards of Best Practice using approved methods and materials.  On completion of work and receipt of full payment we issue an industry standard 10 years warranty.  Through our link with the DPA, we can offer further Insurance backed Guarantees available from GPI (Guarantee Protection Insurance).

"I was extremely impressed with the thoroughness of the report and the speed you turned it round...I have decided not to proceed on this property however, if I need another specialist survey I will certainly use your firm again." SUE, EXETER.
