Chris and his son were lovely people to deal with. He kept up communication via text of when they could come and what time they would arrive etc. They went above and beyond to deliver what they had promised. I would recommend them. I just hope it's all done the trick and the woodworm are gone! Errg!

Very pleased with the work, from original quote to completing work,4 days. Efficient and value for money. Timers in loft space sprayed to elimate "woodworm"

Would highly recommend this company. Very honest approach and did not try to charge me for work that didn't need doing. A friendly, efficient and prompt service, and when they were carrying out the job, they provided me with an update every step of the way so I was fully informed of what was happening and when .... and they cleaned up after themselves which is always a bonus too!

Chris and his team completed the agreed work on time and to the agreed budget. The work appears to be great - its hard to tell with technical work such as damp proofing. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Damp and Decay, its been a great experience dealing with them and having them around.

I couldn't recommend Chris and his team highly enough. Following a survey we had on our house we bought we asked Chris to come in and treat the rising damp throughout the house. He was quick and thorough. Other contractors working on the house also commented on the excellent quality of work they had seen them doing. Chris was clear with costs prior to doing any work so there were no surprises. I would highly recommend damp and decay direct.

Pest Control

Recently bought a house and the survey flagged up damp and woodworm, had a guy sent by the estate agents to have a look who told us damage was extensive- we found Chris through here to quote the work for us after we'd pulled up the floors and stripped the wallpaper so everything was visible, and he was very honest and told us we didn't actually need any work, there was nothing wrong! Very honest guy, could have done otherwise- we would highly recommend him to anyone to actually give you what you need!

Chris and his partner came out and gave a very thorough survey of the damp in my property. They explained the situation interms I could understand and broke down each part of the work so I could see what it entailed. Excellent services and one I would certainly reccomend.

's question

We have a small amount of mould in a bedroom. The affect area is where a divan bed is against the wall. The other side of the wall that's been affected is the exterior. I would like to know if having divan beds makes mould more likely and which tradesman should I use to remove the mould and repaint the wall.

    Hi, the divan needs to be away from the wall to allow ventilation, ideal temperature and ventilation should be obtained throughout the house, ventilation in key in areas like the bathroom and kitchen, very unlikely this is a failed DPC/DPM issue.

Had my flat roof replaced 2 months ago, it now leaks in several places! Roofer has attempted repairs 4 times but cannot stop water penetration. Where can I go to? Now lots of ££££ out of pocket. Thank you Carol

    Take him to small claims court for refund and get another contractor to do the work properly.
