'Ambient' gave us a thorough survey and quote for the work required to solve the damp problem.
They then carried out the work when they said they would. The job kept to timescale and budget and was completed to a good standard.

Dave responded to my online enquiry and further correspondence very quickly. On inspection of the property he provided a thorough, verbal explanation of the problems encountered and various options available to remedy the damp. This was followed up quickly with a written quotation and explanation of tasks agreed. The work was subsequently undertaken and completed within a few weeks to a great standard. This included: removal and refitting of skirting boards; removal and re-hanging of radiators; removal of wallpaper and plaster; damp proofing; plasterboard and skimming. Ultimately, the house was left as it was found and all necessary work to achieve this was included in the quote; something that was not included in other quotes I received. This made the whole process much easier and straightforward, such that I would highly recommend Ambient Preservation.

Plaster romoved from all walls chemical injection and membrane to affected area. Was meant to be plasterboarded and skimmed, but was plasterboarded and slimmed full height as walls were so eneven. (No extra cost). Door frame taken out and surrounding wall boarded and skimmed, window sill built up, plasterbboarded and skimmed, this was an extra request by myself during the course of the work at a price agreed.

Dave called to give a quote the day after I contacted him. He provided a thorough, verbal explanation of the work involved and followed this up very quickly with a written quotation and explanation of tasks. Dave was professional and enthusiastic about what could be done to remedy the damp and offered to start the work in three weeks time. The guys who undertook the work were all positive and very good at explaining what they were doing. The plasterers did all they could to prevent dust escaping from the room and they tidied up when they had finished. The walls have been impressively plastered. The skills of an electrician were required at one point and this was arranged very quickly. All the guys were good at letting me know what time they would be arriving each day.

Damp proof course and plastering to five walls. 'Ambient Preservation' inspected the damp walls and produced a report, quote and work schedule. It was decided that the work would be conducted over two working days. This began with damp plaster taken off, damp proof membrane applied and new plaster and skirting boards to complete the walls.

Total re-rendering of large front and side of end terrace house. Addressing of damp issues occurring inside the house.
I cannot recommend the workmanship of this company enough. Right from the very start they were knowledgeable, approachable and obviously experienced. They worked very hard and were reliable and friendly. The work wasn't as straightforward as we'd hoped but they discussed all their recommendations and brought in extra workers when needed. They were flexible and very pleasant. We enjoyed having them around for cups of tea! Reuben was brilliant. He took obvious pride in his work and we are thrilled with the results. Everyone on the street has said how good it looks. He suggested when improvements could be made but did not force his decisions on us. His expertise was very valuable as we had consulted many other people to limited success. He was very neat and tidied up after himself. We would definitely recommend his work and this company to anyone. Thank you so much for the brilliant job.

They detected the problem straight away and emailed me a quote and palns within a week. Now my home is back to new, not only did they install a new damp proof they also re-decorated the rooms.

It was a pleasure also to have a lady decorator working with them. I would highly recommend them.
