In what turned out to be a much bigger job than anyone first realised, the attention I received, (even a callout over a weekend) was first class. The quality of the workmanship, the "no, its not too much trouble", the value for money, the friendly relationship that was built up could not be rated too highly. Would not hesitate to employ them again. Five stars?.........no, worth more than that.

Our Victorian mid-terrace has a problem with condensation in the downstairs bathroom. It's a solid wall brick extension (30s/40s?) so the walls get icy cold in Winter and it is impossible to heat. The cold walls (on 2 sides) mean we suffer heavily from shower steam condensing, ruing the decor and causing mould. I'm exploring options for insulating and improving the room. Ideally I'd like to use internal insulation because it's cheaper than external insulation even if it means going back to brick to get rid of the damaged plasterwork/old tiling etc. I was looking at replacing the extractor with a more powerful model, then lining the walls with waterproof insulated tile backer boards, with floor-to-ceiling tiles to the face. However I've been told by a friend that we should be careful as the exterior of the walls are completely rendered and we risk trapping moisture by not allowing the walls to breathe. Is this advice correct or can we somehow safely insulate the bathroom internally? I think that external insulation is likely to be out of our price range.

    Hi John you should Thoroseal the walls first up to 1 meter high - this height as rising damp will only rise 900mm due to gravity - once two coats of Thoroseal are applied batton off the walls with 4x2 timber - then insulate between the 4x2 with 100mm Double R insulation. fix a membrane we use 1200 guage over the whole wall and finally plasterboard it - this will give you a warm and damp free wall hope that helps regards Jeremy (Griffin Builders)

    Hi Terry I am a builder that uses Rated people for some of our work and I think that if a builder buys your job lead you can then see their profile
