Our skilled tradesmen are all Forest born and bred and are all intimate with property types across the Forest and can give on site advice about damp problems and the correct way of addressing damp and decay problems

Dampness in buildings is quite a common occurrence and can cause much distress for owners of many houses and often houseowners may be wrongly advised by some builders and contractors that their property is suffering from rising damp and damp-proofing works may be recommended. However dampness may be from other sources such as penetrating damp from roof or gutter leaks, condensation or lateral damp ingress from high ground levels. Our surveyors will be able to diagnose what the problem is and then offer cost effective solutions to alleviate any rising damp, condensation and penetrating dampness.

If the work goes beyond our original remit of repairing dampness and decay we can undertake various other building repairs to prevent moisture ingress into your house such as roofing, guttering and external rendering. We also have reciprocal working arrangements with Gas Safe registered plumbers and NICEIC qualified electricians throughout the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley.
