  • Waterproofed a very damp garage

    10Verified Review

    Malcolm undertook a very difficult and exacting job to make my garage waterproof. This involved cutting a channel in the adjoining path and filling it with shingle, cladding an outside wall and waterproofing all internal walls. Also, repointing brickwork externally and making good internal brick structures. All undertaken with extreme dedication and sometimes in very trying circumstances over a period of time (June/July 2023).
