Kind words from our happy customers
Sold my house ‘subject to survey’ and then lots of negative findings re damp from buyers mortgage surveyor, and very expensive quotes ! Called Sussex Dampworks and thankfully they visited and explained impartially, and in ‘layman’s terms’, what definitely needed doing (lintels and wall ties) rather than all the unnecessary ‘window dressing’ things which would have cost lots of money! Now had the work done and saved lots by listening to an expert …. on completion Aaron visited and approved the works done and I feel reassured. I found this company to be efficient and knowledgeable and gave me peace of mind – in fact now decided against moving as I feel the house is problem free , and will ask Aaron to visit each year to reassure me! Happy to recommend his service
We had a leak in our kitchen which we needed to claim for. I had Aaron round from Sussex Dampworks who discovered so many more problems which would have had awful repercussions had they not been found. His reports were so in depth and backed up with photographic evidence. Left us and our insurance company in no doubt of the problems we had incurred. The service was fast and efficient. I recommend these guys!!
We were told we had a leaking chimney breast which would need replacing at great expense. Thankfully we asked for a second opinion from Aaron @ Sussex Damp works and he diagnosed it to be hygroscopic dampness. We treated it as such, solved the problem and saved a considerable amount.
Having met Aaron West when looking for advice in relation to a listed building and wanting the best qualified input in how to maintain perfect equilibrium of humidity, temperature and ventilation, he came to the rescue and offered practical and expert advice. There was no work needed in my property other than better ventilation and extraction. Safe to say, all the issues of damp went away. Saved me thousands of pounds. Thank you Aaron.
I phoned Aaron after wasting thousands on my basement. Aaron got his scientific hat on and after putting his finger in and on different surfaces and tasting it (each to their own I suppose) worked out that the water coming in was from a rising water table. He managed to find the original sump, which the cowboy builders had just concreted over. He then advised how to divert the water to the new sump and hey presto, dry basement. Aaron you’re a star and thank you very much. see you next year for the sump pump service.
I called Sussex Dampworks after noticing some damp in a ceiling. Aaron turned up and asked to see what was above the room upstairs – it was the shower room. I thought it must be leaks in the pipework and would cost a fortune. Fortunately Aaron worked out that it was faulty sealant. He then removed part of the leaky ceiling, checked the woodwork. He told me to fix the sealant and leave the ceiling open until it all dried out, then fix the ceiling. I did as he suggested, it cost almost nothing and has been alright ever since. Thanks Aaron, saved me a fortune.
