Latest reviews

  • Damp area in living room

    As others have suggested, both knowledgeable and helpful, seeking to give practical information and suggest what needs to be done and how. Would definitely recommend and will be keeping in mind for future work.

  • Quote for Damp Proofing Work

    What Sibylle doesn't know about Victorian terraces isn't worth knowing. Incredibly well informed, confident and forthright in her expertise, Sibylle was able to provide a very welcome point of view on the condition of a property I was looking to buy and the work that was required. She offered unbiased advice after completing a survey at no cost. Had the amount of work necessary not have been well out of my price range and had I ended up buying the house, I'd have been sure to engage her services for the task in hand.

  • damp and mould in bay window area

    Very knowledgable and able team. they know a lot about how to deal with damage in old houses, and about repairing building errors made in the 70's and 80's. Work is high quality with attention to detail. In contrast to the damp specialists, they advised me against injection treatment and recommended lime plastering instead - a wise decision it seems.would recommend sibylle and her team especialy for jobs that are a bit more challenging and where one needs to trust the builder.
