“I cannot praise General Damp proofing enough.  I had a substantial problem with my house that was giving me sleepless nights. The company were recommended by my builder and they responded swiftly to my call.  Paul reassured me with a clear, straightforward diagnosis.  He then organised for an experienced, hard-working team to carry out the work expertly and considerately.  I found Paul approachable, helpful and I trust his expert opinion. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend General Damp Proofing.”
