Amazing service

Lee and his team today completed damp works in my property. Theyve done an amazing job. Lee is a very co-operative and informative person who goes into detail. After years of trying to figure out the problem Lee the specialist knew what it was and explained thoroughly how to resolve the issue. We were really happy with his price and gave the go ahead. Ive had so many builders in the past but was amazed at the end by how spotless their job was. They even cleaned up so well after themselves without me asking which was a bonus for me! I definitely reccomend this fantastic company. You can really trust them, very honest and also great value for money!
