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 and to the highest standard. Midland Damp Doctor has a total of 4 tradespeople who along with my immediate family members make up our whole team. Each tradesperson is multi trade and we rarely come across any issues we cannot handle for people.

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. Many companies want to get the job completed swiftly and make as much profit on each job as possible.
In our honest opinion this is wrong. The most important thing when completing a damp proofing renovation is the work is completed correctly. 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 finish.
We have never been back to a renovation we have completed because of either a breakdown in the product or an error in our own work method.

We can help with-

Rising Damp
Penetrating Damp
Efflorescence contamination
Dry Rot
Wet Rot
Woodworm
Condensation
Cellar/Basement Conversions
Reskimming
External Rendering
Repointing
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 )

BEWARE !!!

Some damp proofing companies and builders would substitute the 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.

Moving away from the technical side, I am extremely proud to announce Midland Damp Doctor was nominated for my builders 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.
