Customer Reviews


Resolve a damp issue under the lounge bay window and fix front dorr leaking problem.

Verified Review

The surveyor who assessed our damp issue was extremely knowledgable and identified the areas causing the problem . This was after we had been quoted for various solutions by non-specialist building firms , which were far more expensive and would not have resolved the issue. The engineer that carried out the work was able to start the work over the weekend, wwhich was welcome as it was slightly earlier than scheduled . He was similarly knowledgable and efficient and made sure all required tasks were completed to a very high standard. We are very pleased with the results. Thank you.
