Basement Waterproofing & Building Work – Horsforth, Leeds

January 2023
Excellent service from start to finish! Cannot fault YDC in anyway. From day 1, when Matt (Director) and Mark (Surveyor) inspected our flooded basement, to the last stages (plastering, installing a ventilation system, and servicing the pumps), we have found the YDC team to be knowledgeable, professional, and respectful, with a fantastic attention to detail. We have gone from two feet of water in our basement to having a useable, dry, and, above all, safe utility room. We spoke to several other basement companies in the Leeds area who did not have half the knowledge or experience that YDC have. Fully recommended!

Damp Control – Selby

August 2022
YDC have been absolutely fantastic. We had problems with some recurring damp following their initial work but Matt and his team were honest about the problem and redid the job without any argument. They accommodated our own need for delays over several years before returning to put things right. On both occasions, the work was carried out efficiently by their friendly staff and they left everything clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to use again. Honest. Reliable. Accountable. An excellent service and with many thanks for all their help, they have been much appreciated!!
