How to find the right Damp Proofing Company

Obtaining a high-quality damp proofing service for your home is essential for keeping it protected from the onset of mould and mildew, allergens and rot that are often associated with damp areas of the home.

However, the average person knows very little about what makes a proofing service a good one, and which ones should be avoided. This advice, given by respected professionals in the field, will help you determine which company is the one you should be going with if you want your home to be adequately protected, without being taken for a ride.

Identify high risk services

High risk service providers are those with no, or dubious credentials. You need to know what kind of training, experience and track-record your damp proofers are working with, because each one of their mistakes might as well be yours.

Be careful of independent contractors with no real specialisation, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes, and they might even overcharge you. Instead of paying more for a lesser service, keep an eye out for damp proofing specialists that can back up what they say.

Learn what you can from their website

These days, every reputable company has its own website where you can get information and examples of their work. To determine whether you are dealing with an established professional or not, simply take a look at their website. If they don’t have one, you might want to stay clear. If their given information is too vague, they might not be what you are looking for.

Give good instructions through clear communication

You need to be able to communicate clearly with whoever is damp proofing your home. Communication is essential for giving clear instructions, as well as identifying and dealing with potential problems when damp proofing your home. Maintaining clear communication with your damp proofer will also help you suss them out more effectively.

Ask for testimonials

There is nothing wrong with requesting examples of, or testimonials of a company’s previous work when deciding if they are the right choice to go with. An experienced damp proofer should be able to give you scores of examples and testimonials on their previous work, so insist on finding out what you can from them before agreeing to go with them.

Shop around

There are plenty of damp and water proofing contractors out there, all providing services of varying quality at different prices. If you want to be sure that you are going with the right team, be sure to shop around as much as you can to widen and compare your options.
