Pre-purchase damp & Timber survey in Ripon

When trying to find a suitable surveyor I was cautious based on past experiences however I couldn't recommend this company more.
The admin staff were excellent with handling my request and the surveyor arrived promptly and carried out a robust survey.
The report was fantastic and the surveyor had obviously spend a decent amount of time compiling the measurement results, photos and also diagrams of how and where the issues were seen.
I would definitely recommend this companies surveying service.

Pre-Purchase Damp Survey In Malton

"Dryfix carried out a specialist survey on a property with high damp reading, following our home buyer survey.  We cannot speak too highly of this company from booking the survey to us concluding that the level of damp was unacceptable.  Dryfix are professional, approachable, provide a detailed understandable report, answer questions, discuss options and problems giving valuable advice.  We would not hesitate to recommend them and use their services again."

Damp problems in Yorkshire

Damp problems in Yorkshire

"Just to alert anyone considering getting a damp survey done in Yorkshire that I've just saved at least £600 by using Dryfix Preservation. I'd previously called in a firm offering a "free" survey but, after seeing comments on MSE (Money Saving Expert.com), I decided to pay for another survey to get an unbiased opinion.

The conclusion of the "free" survey was that I had rising damp and an injected damp-proof course was needed which would cost nearly £600 .. or £800 if I had all the walls done!

Dryfix came and did a detailed examination which established that the water was not coming up from the soil and that the wall was DRY!

They could easily have reported that the wall needed some expensive treatment but they told me that the only thing I need to do is replace the damaged plaster. What a huge relief that was.

It may seem like a lot of money to pay for a survey but it's better to get a report from someone who isn't trying to sell you something!

I have already told my friends and neighbours and I wish you every success.

Thanks again."


Damp Repair in York

"The information and explanation of our problems was excellent and the advice given regarding the cure was reassuring.  The workmen were polite and hard working causing no real disruption to our home. Each day your workmen were here, we were more and more confident that we were finally going to see the end to the damp. 

The final outcome we are fully satisfied with and cannot recommend you too highly.

Excellent workmanship and kindness shown at all times, Thank you all!"

"The two workmen that came to our house were excellent.  We have had bad experiences with other companies in the past. Russell and his team were a cut above the competition.

Although we hope we never need their services again, if we did Dryfix would definitely be the company we would call".


Mr Child

Pre-purchase Damp and Timber Report Selby

"We asked Dryfix to carry out a damp and timber survey on our property before we purchased. Russell carried out the survey within a week of us contacting them, and we had the survey less than two days later.

The report was very clear and detailed and Russell got in contact to answer any questions we had.

We will be instructing Dryfix to complete some of the work needed once we have moved into our house. 

Many Thanks"

Miss Wheeler

Condensation Control in York

"We moved into our new property and found that we had a very bad condensation issue.

By chance we were given the details of Russell from Dryfix Preservation in York who worked with us to provide a solution.

Russell carried out some tests and monitored our home for a period of time and proposed that we install a positive input ventilation system.

After installing the system Russell closely monitored the changes. We quickly noticed a big difference as our walls and windows became dry.

Overall we are very pleased with the help and advice Russell has given us."

Many thanks
