Damp proofing services in Bradford

If you are a private householder or landlord in the Bradford area, we can carry out any of your preservation or treatment work. We are fully approved by building societies and estate agents.

As a small company we do not charge VAT meaning you can save up to 20% in our expert services. When dealing with us you will only ever have one point of contact ensuring you speak to the person who is actually carrying out your work.


To provide you with a free estimate we will visit your property and a free inspection will take place. A written report will then be issued detailing the problems found, the remedy to rectify these and a breakdown of costs for the work required.
