Damp Control – Headingley, Leeds

August 2021
From start to finish my experience with Yorkshire Damp Course was great. All staff were friendly, polite, helpful, and willing to answer questions and concerns. Whilst doing the work staff were very considerate and tidy, making a great effort to keep disruption and dust to a minimum. The work was completed to a very high standard, with good attention to detail. It was very clear that the team (Paul & Nathan) took pride in their work. Work was commenced & completed on the agreed dates making the whole experience stress-free. I feel I can highly recommend to YDC friends & family & in fact have already done so!
