Damp in bedroom on old chimney breast Damp Proofing
Anthony is an affable character who is very enthusiastic and efficient at his job. The work was completed to an excellent standard with no short cuts taken. Anthony even checked that everything was ok in the following week after the job had been finished; this is the kind of person he is. I will use him again if I have any further problems or need anything plastered etc; and I recommend him.

Damp on Hallway Wall Damp Proofing
Anthony was fabulous, he responded to my email and came out really quickly to assess my damp problem and to give me a quote. I found him very reasonably priced and a lovely man, he was very kind and helpful and his wife even gave me some advice on a personal matter!! He came when he said he would and did a super job and left everything neat and tidy, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Haha I am really hoping I won't ever need him again but if I do develop any more damp issues I wouldn't hesitate to call him. He also assured me that if my problem happened again in the same place he would sort it out free of charge so can't praise highly enough!! Very, very satisfied customer!!

Damp proof wall at rear of terraced property Damp Proofing
Anthony was very prompt in contacting me and coming round to quote, he was friendly and very efficient, explaining exactly what needed to be done, and why. He was the only tradesperson who quoted who was able to offer a 30 year, insurance backed guarantee for his work. Anthony wasn't the cheapest (wasn't the most expensive either though) and couldn't do the work for several weeks but despite being in a rush to get the job done I still decided to go with him as I just felt more confident that he would do a good job. I am extremely glad I waited. Anthony arrived when he said he would, did the job promptly and efficiently and then went above and beyond the remit of the original job. Being in the midst of a new kitchen installation and other house renovation works I've been chasing my tail trying to get contractors, materials, deliveries etc. Anthony has proved to be an absolute godsend in helping me sort these things out, having many local trade contacts. He's helped out my kitchen fitter, collected and delivered stuff from Wickes for me and got me a reliable joiner and a plumber at the drop of a hat...the man is in my phone book for life! So yes, I can highly recommend Anthony if you want a friendly, knowledgeable, reliable tradesman.

Damp proofing and re-plastering in Edwardian semi Damp Proofing
In addition to this job Antony also carried out damp proofing work for me in November 2016. I refer to both jobs here
Antony was a pleasure to work with, extremely competent and knowledgable, a real expert in his field, and a genuine and friendly guy. He was able to give advice over the phone in terms of what the problem might be and what needed doing, and on coming out he was open and transparent about the damp readings taken and what they might mean. The process Antony follows is depicted in the pictures on his profile in terms of installing both the membrane to plaster/skim over as well as the damp proof course. He was extremely clean and tidy given what is an inherently messy job. He was also able to source and supply some bespoke made replacement skirting board exactly matching the original period skirting board.
The more recent work was damp proofing prior to a kitchen fit. Antony is a real perfectionist and actually left the half ripped out kitchen much tidier and organised than the kitchen fitters had left it, even tidying up some of the plumbing.
All in all a very positive experience with no issues in the 18 months or so since the original work was done, and I don't expect this more recent work to be any different. I can't recommend Antony enough for anyone wanting to make sure that their damp problem gets sorted, you might have to wait a few weeks for a gap in his schedule but there's a reason he's busy!!

Correction of damp Damp Proofing
From the minute Anthony came to quote for the job I knew how professional he was. He explained everything to me. He was very quick in providing a quote and arranged a start date promptly. It was a pleasure to have him in the house. He completed the work to an excellent standard and worked with respect and although it was messy work tried his best to leave things as clean and tidy as possible. All rubbish and debris was removed. After the job was completed Anthony helped me by arranging a joiner to do some additional work. Nothing was too much trouble. Being a single woman I felt confident in every aspect and would highly recommend Anthony.

Damp course Damp Proofing
Anthony arrived to give me a quote but also gave me all the other cheaper options available . He arrived on time and completed the work with a minimum of disruption, I was expecting more mess than he actually made but even so he cleaned up after the work was completed (fantastic finish to the plastering)
Also joinery work , and of course the damp course itself,
Anthony even did a few small jobs for me which went beyond the job agreed
He also called back after the job was done to confirm everything was still ok
Would highly recommend Anthony to anyone wanting work done

Damp proofing and plastering Damp Proofing
he job was a big job with the living room and stair case taken back to brick (including ceilings), full damp proofing, then boarding and plastering. The first two days were a bit of a shock but Antony explained what was happening, what was being done and how it would come back together. Complete reassurance provided! I was made aware of the challenges with 100 year old house and how they were being corrected. In just over a week the chemical treatment was done, the damp membrane up, boarding all up making all the walls true (a feat in itself in my house) and then skimmed to what feels like a glass finish.
The price was reasonable, it was expensive as its big job and I’m allergic to spending money. This wasn’t the cheapest but not the most expensive and gave the best value. Cheaper quotes offered a bare minimum where Antony stated what was actually needed and gave quality advice.
The house was left as clean and tidy as possible at the end of each day and the team were friendly and went the extra mile. On the first day Antony stayed an extra hour, on his hands and knees ensuring that my kids had internet connectivity. He wouldn’t leave until they were happy and that is above and beyond in my view.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the work and I will no doubt be using AP Plastering and Damp Proofing again and again as I work through renovating my home. Even before decorating the work is being complimented, I didn’t imagine the result would be as good as it is!

Anthony came to treat three patches of damp in our house. Came out to quote when he said and returned with a reasonable cost. Got the work scheduled in and he came exactly when he said. He got the work done over a weekend very efficiently. He was also able to offer some helpful advice for another issue. Very experienced, obviously knows his stuff, polite and friendly. I'd definitely recommend Anthony for any damp proofing or plastering.

Anthony did this job in my living room first, he saved me from a terrible tradesman and I can't thank him enough for it. The job was done brilliantly.

Damp in living room... Damp Proofing
I spoke with Anthony regarding the posted job, and he arrived that evening to give me a quote. Unfortunately the work needed was more than I had anticipated, with several areas of damp on different walls. Anthony has since fully damp proofed the problem areas, as well as re plastered. The standard of work is impeccable, and as well as this Anthony has offered advice when asked regarding other work required within the house, and has also tolerated several phone calls from myself asking a variety of questions! The work has also come with an insurance backed guarantee, and as I've had problems with previous damp proofers who's guarantees were worthless, this was a major plus for me.
I have since had new skirting boards fitted, as well as carpets and radiators - all installed by workmen recommended by Anthony, and all who have provided excellent service as well as very reasonable quotes. Communication was excellent throughout, and I would not hesitate to employ this company in the future if needed. Anthony and his colleagues were very respectful to my home, and considering the work I had done it was left much tidier than I had expected. I cannot recommend A P Damp Proofing enough. Thank you very much for all your help.

Damp on two metre section of wall, maybe more Damp Proofing
Anthony did a fantastic job at a great price. He visited me quickly to give a quotation, was polite and respectful in my home, arranged a convenient time to do the work and turned up when he said he would. He kept in contact, communications were excellent. The work itself - damp-proofing a section of wall - was carried out to a very high standard. Anthony even went above and beyond by having a section of replacement bespoke skirting board made for me and delivered to my home at trade price.
I would have no hesitation in using him again and would recommend him to friends and family.

Excellent job, I can thoroughly recommend Antony's work.
Antony came out promptly, assessed the work explained what needed doing and produced a quote and a possible starting date.
We were contacted before the start date to confirm the start time. They turned up on time worked throughout each of the days.
At the end of each day they cleaned up and removed all the rubbish, there was no hassle or worries.
The job has been completed to a very high standard and the work is backed by an insurance guarantee. We are completely satisfied, so much so we have already asked Antony to come back and carry out another job.

Damp Proofing to small area of rising damp. Damp Proofing
I had an area of rising damp at the back of the house, where the plaster was damp and the paint peeling away.
Anthony came round within a day or so, and used his electronic 'damp-meter' (for want of a better term!) to establish the area that required attention. He was also able to use this to discern area that were just damp from window frames/condensation etc, rather than 'penetrating damp'. He explained everything (regarding slate damp courses, salt penetration etc), in a way that an amateur could easily understand.
Anthony returned at a time that was convenient for me, to carry out the work. This involved stripping back the plaster, injecting a damp course into the mortar, installing a damp proof membrane to a height above the level at which damp had penetrated, and replastering the wall. This was all completed to a very high standard; I had relatives round later in the day who commented that the wall was looking great. The room was also left completely tidy afterwards.
In addition to the high standard of workmanship, and the very fair price for the work, Anthony is a very nice chap to deal with; I would have no hesitation in using him/ recommending him for any future damp proofing or plastering work.

Can't recommend A P Plastering highly enough. Antony was round at my house to give me a quote within an hour of me making the initial enquiry. We agreed a date for the work to be done. He arrived bang on time that morning and explained everything that he was going to do before he did it. My wall was left lovely and smooth and has now dried ready for me to wallpaper. There was a bit of dust to clean up afterwards but Antony even offered to stay and help with this. I didn't mind a bit of dusting because he'd even let me stand on his van to fix my security light.
