David and his team did a fantastic job and I will definitely be using them again in the future for the remaining work at my property. I initially asked David to quote for some damp proofing, but in the end asked him and his team to re wire my entire property, remove a number of walls and build new partitions. David managed the wider team well which meant I had very little to worry about. I would certainly recommend David and his team to others.

The serviceI received from Up Top Down Below was exceptionally excellent. David and his staff were charming and courteous, the lads who carried out the work were thorough and covered my flooring to protect it, making as little mess as possible and cleaning up after themselves. I can't comment on if damp proofing has worked because it was only done a week ago and the wall needs time to dry out and for the salt staining to disappear. However I will definitely be calling them again for any future work.

Quality of work was good however I felt misled on the price quoted. I was led to believe the price for the job included the cost of hire of a platform/scaffold as it was "unsafe to use ladders so high in a tight space" and "2 guys for 3-4 days" however the platform was never used, obviously they changed their mind about the safety issue, and the job was completed with 6 man days effort spread over 10 days, only 3 of them lost to weather. End result was the day rate ended up at approx 200 per day!

I was very pleased with the work carried out by the team. The job was carried out to a very high standard and I am confident that it will last. The staff were very courteous and considerate, arrived on time and worked very hard to complete on deadline and price. I would have no hesitation in recommending UPDB for future work

We were impressed with the work David and his team did on our damp proofing. They kept us well informed throughout the process, arrived and did the work to in the right timescales and offered gaurantees on all the work. We also used them for decorating and they are even coming back to repaint the walls when they have dried out.

I highly recommend David and his team. He was quick off the mark to arrange a survey and his quote to undertake some damp course work to internal walls and external rendering came in on time, despite the brief changing twice. Out of the three prices I received his was not the cheapest (nor was it the most expensive) - it represented excellent value for money. The work was completed ahead of schedule to a high standard. The house was left clean and the debris was removed without a trace. True Professionals!

I would definitely recommend Up Top Down Below to others. The job was damp proofing & tiling a cellar which they did to a good standard & within the time agreed. David is a knowledgeable tradesman and has reliable builders who work for him. The men were tidy in their work and respectful in keeping our house as clean as poss. The communication was good throughout, David was always available when I tried to call him, and responsive to text messages and e-mails. However the cost was probably more than others.

Jen Lovatt's question

I'm in the process of purchasing a Victorian terraced property in the South Oxfordshire area. In our homebuyers report, the surveyor identified possible damp walls in the living and dining room (knocked through to be one room). This was deemed unusual given that he damp course was done in December 2012. Our survey was done in September 2013. The damp course (chemical injection) invoice mentions the need for re-plastering in February 2013. Is it likely that the vendor waited until September to do this, did it again after February, or that in fact the original course was not done properly and a damp problem has surfaced? Could it also be possible that the cold walls were just due to the property being unheated through the summer months, and not damp at all? We are trying to cut down our queries to reach a completion date and this is one we would like to let go - but don't want an expensive problem on our hands. Does this type of damp course tend to be effective first time? It comes with a 20 year guarantee but only if re-plastering soon after is carried out. Related to this, we plan to install airbricks after we move in to improve the sub floor ventilation. Is this a relatively straightforward job? Many thanks for your help.

    all of the problems you mentioned are of course possible if then property was left unheated and unoccupied but i think more like that the walls on average take approx 1 x calender month per 25mm ( 1" ) to dry out naturally so it may just be the residual damp drying out

I have a flat where the bedroom is suffering from damp on two external walls. The external walls are rendered and the rendering has large cracks in it. I only have two weeks to remedy this damp and builder is recommending dry lining the room as opposed to removing the existing plaster as it would be too wet to apply further plaster on the damp brickwork in the time available. External works cannot be undertaken until the summer. I feel though the problem is still in the room and drying lining is just covering the problem up but for a temporary measure it may just have to do.
