Company information

RB Plastering & Damp-proofing Ltd is committed to providing a thorough and professional service to identify any damp related issues within your home. I use a range of equipment to identify the source of the problem and determine the correct method of treatment required. I have at my disposal the most up to date thermal imaging equipment, electronic moisture meter (Protimeter MMS2), hygrometer, telescopic camera, deep-wall probes, salt testing kit and other items all of which are sometimes necessary to determine the specific problem. I offer free quotes for homeowners/tenants/landlords. If you are buying a property and require a full damp and timber survey then we can do this but there is an initial cost involved (fully refundable if we complete any remedial works defined within the report).

Sub-contractors

I have two full time damp and timber technician sub-contractors who I work on-site with, and alongside on a daily basis, and two part time sub-contractors who complete decorative timber works, kitchen installations, doors/window fitting. I also work alongside fully qualified electricians and plumbers when necessary. All sub-contractors are fully insured and fully qualified in their field of expertise.
