Fixed Dry Rot

I had Dry rot throughout my house, and took 4 quotes. Prices ranged from someone wanting to just spray everything to Rentokil and Lifecote Group offering a comprehensive service exposing joists and floor boards. We decided to go with the LifecoteGroup, the job took three weeks to complete, but they had staff there every day, very impressed James Cooper the surveyor who supervised the job.

Thanks Lifecote

I was given this firms number by the Damp Proofing Association after finding out the company who treated my walls before has gone out of business. The Surveyor produced a file with hundreds of references, felt very at easy with these people. Will recommend Steve Hawes and his team.

Mr Chatfield



Great Company

I had an anti condensation unit fitted to resolve damp, condensation and mould problems. I was skeptical in the beginning that the unit would work. The unit was installed and provided immediate resolution. No damp, no condensation and no mould. The Installer gave me confidence due to his knowledge and convinced me this was the way to go. I had other builder proposals put forward e.g. dry lining re-plastering etc. but all would have been a waste of money. Well done Lifecote. A company with the customer at heart.Tim Briers 10 out of 10!!

Very Good Job well done

I had a house full of black mould that no one could fix, this firm fitted one of their units in my loft in 2 hours and the matter is totally resolved, supervised by Tim Briers. Had two other firms in who wanted to hack of my plaster and charge thousands these people charged me £650 plus the tax. Good firm to deal with.

Lifecote Devon & Cornwall (Mr Farran Mackay) undertook damp treatment, preservation and replastering of basement room wall following a site visit where a number of options were discussed and followed up with written quotations. Following selection the work was conducted over three days (owing to treatment drying times) without fuss or too much mess and the room left ready for redecorating. A good job and well recommended.

Basement tanking by Lifecote Group

We have had our basement converted into a living area by this company. This was a substantial investment and we wanted to choose the best but not the most expensive! Most companies we contacted wanted to charge a fee to come out as we live in central London, this firm said they obviously don’t want your business and came our for free. They gave us a highly competitive quote and completed the works within 2 weeks. Very impressed with the finish and workers. We received a 30 year insurance backed guarantee. Would recommend they do as they promise.

Review of lifecote Group

For years we have suffered Damp and mould, I have had at least 4 Damp Proofing companies in who gave quotes from £300 to £3000 and I had no confidence in any of these. The industry trade body the Damp Proofing Association put us in touch with these people. Firstly, the surveyor was on time and very well presented, explained the problem to my wife and I and demonstrated the solution with a special Lifecote fan unit that sits in our loft. This cost us £650 + VAT and the Lifecote electrician fitted the unit within an hour and provided a vital certificate we needed for renting the property out. Can’t fault this firm, would recommend to others with Damp or mould issues.

Lifecote Tender review

The Lifecote Group have just completed a commercial tender for us. The tender was completed on time and within budget. The installations were from Cornwall to Glasgow and all their office regions performed well. Yes I would recommend this firm to others, very well organised and always someone on the phone to talk to. Good performance and well done.

Dr Paul Thomas Lifecote Group

Thank you very much

The gentleman who came to give me a quote obviously knew his job and explained as he went along. (I had two other quotes from other companies who didn’t give me any confidence that they knew their job) The quote was competative and the service exceptional. The men who came to do my damp proofing were punctual, polite, friendly and very professional. They disrupted me as little as possible and tidied up after themselves so you wouldn’t know anyone had been there. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other people

Structural Repair By Lifecote

The work was supervised by father and Son team, Chris and Scott Maynard, we took three quotes, this quote was the middle one and given the fact it’s a basement in Central London we wanted the job done properly. The key element in this project was either Scott or Chris was present every day to check on progress and supervise the works. I would not hesitate in recommending both Chris or Scott and the very efficient team who neither smoked, played music or knocked off early. A credit To The Lifecote Group.

Sally Johnson Lifecote Group

Lifecote Group Structural Repair

Our house developed structural cracks requiring specialist attention. I made a number enquires but almost every firm I called said they could not help or wanted to charge for the quote which I was surprised at. Contacted this firm and within 24 hours a Surveyor called and undertook a free and I must say, comprehensive survey. The quote arrived a few days later and was very fair and reasonable, I got my father in law who is an actual structural engineer to read it and he agreed with its contents. The Lifecote Group undertook the crack brick stitching and also installed Wall ties that stabilized the building. Included in the quote was a free structural guarantee for 30 years. The technicians were very knowledgeable and undertook the task swiftly. I would recommend this firm to those reading this article.

Lifecote Basement Review

The Damp Proofing Association recommended this firm to me, I wanted a quote to water proof my basement. My call was answered promptly and I was getting fed up calling other firms to hear an answer machine or someone taking my call on his mobile phone. A Surveyor was sent out within 24 hours and within a further 48 hours I received a detailed quotation and a realistic price structure. The quote was not the cheapest but having a basement conversion done on the cheap and flooding would not be my preferred mode of operation. I gave them the contract and within 14 days had a completed basement which included plumbing and electrics all undertaken by the same Surveyor who personally supervised the installation. Was I impressed? Yes I was and certainly very impressed when the actual manufacturer turned up to sign the job off. Great service would recommend them

Lifecote Group Review

Our house suffered with excessive condensation and mould problems for years, we had tried everything. Local builder fitted air vents, insulation and repaired loft but still mould everywhere. I called in the Lifecote Group and the surveyor recommended fitting one of their units in my loft. Within days the entire house was mould free I cannot recommend this company more. The unit cost me £650.00 + VAT and was cheaper than the other companies I contacted, some of those companies even wanted to charge to give me a quote. Within days a ten year guarantee was received through the post. Old fashioned service from a customer valued company.

Superb advice and service – you won’t beat it.

Excellent experience. I have been trying tosolve my damp problems for YEARS! Nobody seemed able or willing to help me get things sorted. The surveyor who came round really did know his stuff and was very practical and down to earth, truly wanting to solve the problem in the most efficient and economical way. The job went as planned, the guys worked like trojans late into the evening. Can’t recommend them enough – many thanks!

Excellent work by Lifecote (Scotland) Limited

I recently had work completed in two of the rooms in my home by Graham Davison of Lifecote (Scotland) ltd. Graham called me after I had completed an on line enquiry promptly, came to the house on time to survey and delivered a very competitive quote compared to two other local companies. During and after the survey Graham explained in simple terms what was needing done and was extremely helpfull throughout the whole process. The work was completed on schedule, to the agreed price and all the waste material was taken away nd the house left in a tidy fashion. The standard of the work is extremely high and I will certainly be recommending Graham and Lifecote to anyone who needs this kind of work done. Thank you.

Careful, clean and thorough – highly recommended

Lifecote were recommended by a neighbour which is always reassuring. The Survey was the most thorough of five I had done from different companies yet the quote wasnt the most expensive. Also, in contrast tosome other contrractors, I was spoken to as an intelligent person with possible causes discussed with me and damp readings shown as the surveyor went round. Other companies didnt bother with one corner because there was a chair in the way! Lifecote had spotted a possible problem outside and went into that corner, moving furniture to so. The work was carried out courteoulsy, within time limits and on the agreed dates and each day they cleaned up and cleared debris into bags. The used sheeting to protect surfaces. Well worth sustaining them with Tea and Biscuits! Clear advice was given about waiting to decorate in writing and verbally. Highly recommended

Having read other reviews I was reasonably confident that Lifecote would provide honest advice and that is exactly what I got!

Possible damp problem.

However no work was required but he gave some excellent advice on preventing damp and increasing air circulation. 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.

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.

Survey for potential damp

Lifecote was thoroughly professional. 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. Would highly recommend him to anyone. Customer in New Malden, 7 December 2010

Damp and woodworm investigation.

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

Free estimate of cost of damp proofing work on property we are buying.

Identified roof repairs needed to address the damp problem but no actually damp proofing work which Lifecote could themselves carry out, so no income for them. Feedback was prompt, friendly, clear and helpful. An excellent service. Customer in Surbiton, 10 September 2010
