About Midland Damp Doctor

Midland Damp Doctor was formed in February 2014 when several experts within the industry decided to form their first company with one aim. Everything is completed correctly, to specification and to the highest standard. Midland Damp Doctor has grown to be a known and respected name in damp proofing industry completing all sizes jobs from small domestic repairs to huge commercial projects.

We work closely with Sovereign Chemicals. Founded in 1965, Sovereign has long been acknowledged as the respected name in the field of chemical products for the building and construction industry. The company is the acknowledged leader in chemical damp-coursing throughout the UK.

Midland Damp Doctor has a very different outlook on the way this type of work is conducted. The most important thing when completing a damp proofing renovation is the work is completed correctly. I can confirm that, like with most things in life, the best way is never the cheapest and we will not be the cheapest company out there. Rushing or cutting corners aren't an option in this industry and our record and reviews are proof that we complete the work by the book and to an extremely high standard of finish.
We have never been back to any past work that we have completed because of an error in our own practical work method.

We can help with-

Rising Damp
Penetrating Damp
Efflorescence contamination
Dry Rot
Wet Rot
Cellar/Basement Conversions
External Rendering
Installing new timber or concrete floors
External weatherproofing

All our work conforms to BS-5492-1990 & BS - 6576 - 1985 ( British Standard for Internal Plastering & British Standard for Chemical Damp Proof Course respectively )


Some damp proofing companies and builders would substitute the breathable lightweight renovating backing plaster for cheaper products like sand and cement render with some additives.
This is not recommended because it does not conform to BS-5492-1990 and due to the weight and mass of the material, it may attract condensation and it will not allow the wall to dry out. Companies that use this method either go bust before the 5 year mark or employ solicitors to fight there legal battles.

Moving away from the technical side, I am extremely proud to say Midland Damp Doctor was nominated for My Builder.com's Job of the Year 2016 by three separate customers. Please check out gallery to see what these three had to say.
We are privileged to have completed works for so many wonderful people via mybuilder and our biggest reward is our feedback.

Please read through our feedback and we look forward to helping many more homeowners with any issues they have. Please do not hesitate to call for honest professional advice.

  • Aqua dawn

    I had mould growing on my utility walls. Gary came out and conducted the survey and advised the way to remedy the issue. When the job had started Tom advised there was a more cost effective way of solving the issue so he changed the plan and saved me a little on the cost.
    Once the plan was made Gary and Nico completed the work.
    They arrived late everyday and drank me out of all my tea haha. Gary visited the chip shop close by on one day to collect me some chips.

    All the people at Midland Damp Doctor were very kind and helpful.

    Were almost one year on from the completion of the work and I have no sign of any of the previous issues.

    I would highly recommend them for any damp problems people are facing. They have been very helpful with repeated visits over the past 12 months to help with other issues I have had.

    Absolutely first class !!!
