Business overview

Damp proofing and structural maintenance

Established in 1991, with our Managing Director and Surveyor having over 25 years' experience in the damp proofing and timber preservation industry.

We are currently approved contractors to Sovereign, Safeguard and Triton Chemicals. We are part of the Sovereign Chemicals BS 6576 scheme, which involves our technical and business practices being vetted to ensure we are working to the relevant British standard for chemical damp proofing. We are System Platon approved installers for cavity drainage membranes and pumping systems.

Our surveyor has been a member of the Institute for Specialist Surveyors and engineers since 1994. Although we work in the residential market mainly through recommendation, our company is an approved contractor to 3 major local authorities in Essex. To achieve this we have undertaken extensive technical and financial vetting which is ongoing throughout our employment with them. This entails us holding £5 million public liability and unlimited employer liability insurance. Our staff are City and Guilds qualified and fully employed by the company.

Very happy with this business, although they didn’t actually do any work (as none needed doing), they provided great advice!

Highly recommend

I had several damp surveys done on a property that we are buying and Romana advised simple steps that I could do myself to sort out the issue. This is in contrast to others who quoted me varying amounts. I would therefore recommend that if you think you have a damp issue you contact them for an appraisal.

Good impartial advice

Damp specialists are in a position of diagnosing problems they will then charge to fix, and as such trust is everything. We called this company because a survey when buying house last year (from another company) had specified work to be done, but having witnessed no issues ourselves sought a second opinion. He was polite and friendly, confirmed our suspicion that damp-proofing would be a waste of time and money, but gave good advice on steps we should take ourselves. He has gone away from the encounter without additional paid business and therefore deserves that trust and respect.

Damp proof Very Happy start to finish

EXCELLENT delighted with the work carried out for damp proofing my bedroom. Survey carried out immediately after my call by Paul and I felt confident to go ahead. The men were efficient and left the wall beautifully rendered. The estimate was extremely fair and overall I am very happy and would thoroughly recommend this company.
