“Great advice from Ian – Like that he is independent and not connected to a big company selling services – Honest practical assessment of our damp issues! Thanks!”— LG, Buckhurst Hill, Essex
Ian came to our house, after calling him out to establish a smell we had in one room in the house. Having no idea why we had this damp smell he was quickly able to identify that an extractor fan from the utility room had stopped working and the conduit that carried the air to the outside had stagnant air inside that had come through the wall. New extractor and issue resolved!

I have got to know Ian over the last few years, he has worked with me on a couple of projects. Over this time I have learnt a lot from him, his knowledge and understanding of his trade/industry is second to none. He leaves no stone unturned! He has a wealth of experience and this shows when given a project or dealing with other trades people, His understanding speaks volumes. We recently had an issue when selling our house. Little did I know the implications involved threatening the very sale of our home. I contacted Ian immediately, he took the bull by the horns acted accordingly, resolving any issues that had been brought to our attention, saving the sale. we are forever thankful. I cannot thank him enough, I would always contact Ian, first port of call everytime and would highly recommend him, very professional, and generally nice guy.

Ian drew up plans for a full height side extension to our home. The planning process was not straight forward due to demands from the council however these were all overcome during the journey by Ian’s determination and attention to detail. The plans were fully passed as a result. Ian is friendly knowledgeable and engaging, he is a credit to his profession. I would be happy to recommend his services.
PB, Grays, Essex
Ian came to my newly purchased property to perform a damp and condensation survey after a few extortionate quotes from builders keen to demolish and damp proof parts of the building. Ian was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable on the subject of damp, condensation and indeed other home and building issues. His findings and advice have saved me thousands and put my mind at ease. The suggestions he gave which have been put into place have already improved the issues concerned. Money well spent! I would recommend Ian’s services to anyone in a similar position.

Ian was extremely helpful and offered some great advice when it came to designing our extension. Although we had thought of Velux windows we were’t sure of how big/how many we could have and his drawings were spot on. It was a painless experience for me submitting the plans as Ian did it all!
