Highly recommended, would definitely be 1st people to contact if any problems arose in the future.Customer in Walton-on-Thames, 1 October 2012
I needed a damp specialist to follow up on a survey I had on my new home before I exchanged. I was looking for an honest appraisal of the situation and the work required, and Lifecote provided just that. Lifecote was early to the appointment and was clearly advising on what was best rather than trying to get business for his company. He advised that I need do nothing, but he did give me some really good tips on avoiding damp and condensation in the future. If I ever did need work doing I would not hesitate to use Lifecote. Very professional, thank you!Customer in Coulsdon, 9 August 2012

House treated for woodworm
Working with Lifecote Surrey went really smoothly – from the initial call to the work carried out. When we found out we had to get the house treated for woodworm I searched for companies in our area. Lifecote Surrey were really helpful on the phone, and sent their surveyor, Gary Moakes, over to our house within a few days of the call. Gary confirmed the woodworm problem, and sent through a quote and a comprehensive report within 2 days after the survey. The quote was very reasonable and we agreed a date for the house to be treated. Lifecote were punctual, left the house tidy, and shortly after the work was completed they sent us the certificate to confirm treatment. Overall we were really happy with the work, and would recommend this company.Customer in Windsor, 19 March 2012

Lifecote was very prompt and courteous with his surveys and quotes. Dan completed the work and was early every day and worked very hard throughout the day. The standard of work seems extremely good but as with all damp treatments only time can tell on the quality. Only slight issue was that the guarantee took a long time to arrive and needed chasing by me. Other than that I was very happy with the work and would recommend Customer in Worcester Park, 21 October 2011

Applied damp proof course to 2 and a half sides of our dining room
The work done was obviously by an inspection of the property. The inspection showed up areas of damp in three walls of an extent ion. However, the problems that arose later stemmed from in my opinion the inadequacy of the initial inspection. The initial inspection should have revealed very obvious signs that unless other work was done to the outside of the property first any damp proofing of the walls were bound to fail. Work completed early December 2010 but by March 2011 damp testing instruments were clearly indicating serious problems with damp penetration remained. In short we paid a lot of money for work that a competent inspection should have revealed was wholly inappropriate at the time.Customer in West Molesey, 8 December 2010
Response from Lifecote Surrey Ltd:
We were requested to inspect on damp problems in the dining room area in November 2010, the meter readings showed areas that needed damp proof associated works following the free survey we carried out. Weather permitting we could see if the guttering and down pipe were leaking, but it was not raining on the day of the survey. When we returned and found low moderate damp readings and discovered that the guttering/downpipe were leaking we recommended that the client employ a competent builder to rectify the guttering and we would be happy to return to re test the damp readings, but we could see no reason why future readings would show any damp once the guttering/ downpipe were repaired.

He did not try to take advantage of our lack of knowledge regarding damp problems and instead he described what the problem was and gave numerous tips on how to prevent it happening again.

We are looking to buy a Victorian cottage in East Molesey. Lifecote met with the local estate agent and completed the survey on time. They rang me the same day to say that they had completed the inspection and could find no areas of damp, woodworm or dry rot. When I asked how much did I owe for the service, they said that the survey is free and that not only that, we do not need to have any remedial work done to the property. A great service, they gave us piece of mind about our purchase and I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Customer in Esher, 9 November 2010
