“We approached Damp and Timber Tech to conduct a thorough inspection of our flat and the communal spaces of our building, given an already identified outbreak of dry rot which needed urgent remedial work. Rob’s experience in dry rot and thoroughness in conducting his survey made all the difference in being able to map out exactly what work was needed, so we could then approach the right contractors to undertake the necessary work. This made all the difference in being able to control the costs on the required work and ensure that we received fair pricing for the actual work required, using Rob’s detailed report to guide the contractors on what was needed. Furthermore Rob was extremely accommodating in reviewing a previous building survey that we had completed that had subsequently missed the presence of dry rot completely, and provided a detailed independent expert opinion to support our need for an expert approach to the problem. I would certainly recommend Damp and Timber Tech for their in depth expertise and support when tackling difficult damp and dry rot situations. They have been extremely helpful and approachable and certainly feel we’ve been able to tackle the problem much more informed and have been able to eliminate quite considerable unnecessary expense through having Rob’s detailed guidance.”

"Rob offers an excellent damp surveying service all round. From dealing with estate agents who kept changing the time to providing a quick and easy-to-understand report and advice, he was extremely helpful. We were particularly impressed that he gave us straight and useful answers and didn't couch everything in non-committal terms as so many surveyors do."

"Not having used this type of service before, I contacted Rob as he offered a straightforward and unbiased service, and was upfront about all charges, travel etc. He was very willing to answer questions beforehand, and was very understanding when we had to cancel at the last minute when our house purchase fell through."
We experienced some serious damp problems on a recent fit out of a retail space and due to rarely coming across these problems I was reluctantly left to search the internet for someone to help. Having got Rob to site he was very professional and helpful and turned the report round swiftly. The report was in depth while remaining concise and the recommendations of remedial work enabled us to accurately price the works and in turn solve the problem.
I would definitely use Rob again if faced with a similar problem.
Robert is exactly the person you need when faced with a damp problem. He is honest thorough and meticulous.He knows his subject and is able to help establish the cause/causes of a damp problem and to explain them in a manner which is easy to understand. Always available to offer advice and at a reasonable price.

"We engaged Rob to perform a damp survey on a property we were buying that our surveyor had described as riddled with damp and warned us to reconsider buying. Rob was extremely professional and his report gave us a very accurate view of the nature of the problems and the costs of addressing them. Armed with this information we went ahead with the purchase, got all the recommended works done at a cost very close to Rob's estimates, and are now happily living in our damp free home. Without Rob's report we probably wouldn't have gone ahead with purchase so we can highly recommend his services."
"Just a brief note to confirm that the report was received today .Although it took longer to put together than I had imagined it would my thanks are to you for such a detailed, informative and helpful document. You came recommended to me and I shall in turn recommend you. Thank you Robert. please feel free to use this e mail to promote your business as you wish. my telephone number is enclosed and anyone wishing to call for my comments may indeed do so."

Damian, Contaks Construction, Hants
"Many thanks for the report and carrying out the survey. The report is very detailed and exactly what we need to get the works carried out. I don't have any questions at the moment but will get in touch if I do. If I have any friends who need any similar survey's carried out I will be sure to recommend your services."
"Just to say also that I'm really glad I was talked in to getting an independent surveyor as I feel that you have done a thorough inspection and now finally with the right company to do the job things may get resolved. It was a pleasure to meet you and I would certainly recommend you to friends etc."
