messageRecomendation for a damp proofer
Posted by MrsSeychelles 08 August, 2016 11:28

I just wanted to recommend an excellent damp proofer Dave Plastercare: 07932505589

He is local to East Dulwich and very experienced.

He came round at very short notice and identified the problem quickly (we have had other damp specialists, many of which were also on this forum, round who have ummed and arghed and not really been able to suggest much beyond patching up work which hasn't solved the problem) offered a great price and all in all very helpful.

I too would like to recommend Dave Reilly at Plastercare 07932 505589. Dave sorted out my damp wall. He came over to look at it, identified the problem and gave me a price and a date when he could do the work. He arrived on the agreed date, removed the damp, re-plastered and sealed the section of the wall and injected it. The wall is now fine and I have been able to repaint it. Dave was very helpful throughout.

I'd like to add to the recommendations for Dave.

I called him about a damp problem after seeing his recommendations on here. He arrived early, talked me through what he would need to do, caused minimal mess, reduced his original quote as the job was more straightforward than first seemed and gave me free advice on a couple of areas that I was concerned about. I wouldn't hesitate to use Dave again.

I'd also like to recommend Dave. He called me back quickly, and arrived on time, to check out a problem in my Telegraph Hill house and gave me some terrific advice as to how to handle the damp issue. Advised me I didn't need any particular work done (how often do you hear that from a tradesman?)and gave me useful tips on what I should do to fix the small issues myself.I liked his honestly and candour, also helpful approach.

I'd also like to throw out a recommendation for Dave. He popped around when he said he would, looked at the problem, and then ended up giving me 30 minutes of advice on how I could fix the problem myself, half a bag of sand, and some cement waterproofing additive free to do so! Incredible - don't often find that these days.

I definitely advise giving him a call if you have any sort of damp issue.

I would recommend Dave. We had two 'specialist' damp proffers tell us the large damp patch in our kitchen was damp and required thousands of pounds to repair. Dave took one look at it and confirmed it was not damp. A few months later and Dave really does seem to have fixed the problem for about 1/5 of what the other 'experts' quoted us. He has a direct style which I quite like though it is very direct! Would recommend to others.

Echo all of the above.

Dave advised that a 'damp' wall underneath a window in our spare bedroom was a result of us drying laundry in the room without opening a window. A simple condensation issue. Very glad I asked his opinion as a well recommended roofing company told me the problem was being caused by poor external pointing. They were wrong, he was right.

I would like to add to Dave's recommendations, he sorted out a persistent damp area by the front door, the work was done to a high standard and he was prompt and tidied up well too.

Another recommendation for Dave - he damp proofed and re-plastered our very damp downstairs bay window. He charged a very reasonable price, he was very neat and tidy, arrived exactly when he said he would and the end result is of a really high standard. He's also great at generally giving advice (eg what we'd need to do when putting the skirting board back on) which is incredibly helpful.
