sorry: think I posted in the general versus specific section!
We followed up the recommendations on here for an independent surveyor and now have a really good and detailed report from Jason Mahoney, which is comprehensive and helpful.
We now need to find someone to do the recommended work. Has anyone used a damp-proofing specialist company recently? Any pointers much appreciated so we can get some quotes.
Thanks Neil, your response much appreciated. Good to know about the people to avoid!
Yes I used David Prince/Abbot Damproofing too. I didn't find them excessively expensive but they did an excellent job and you feel 100% safe in David's knowledgeable hands. A no nonsense kind of guy.
Thanks Rebecca.... I'll look them up....
