After discovering a worrying damp problem during a bathroom renovation project I contacted various damp specialists for advice. TrustGuard acted immediately by visiting the site to offer a thorough inspection of the problem, determine root causes and give key advice on the best course of action to correct all problems.

I am extremely pleased with helpful service that Don has provided and would definitely recommend to anybody requiring assessment and repair of damp problems. I will have no hesitation in contacting TrustGuard for any future renovation projects.

Fantastic service! Highly recommended!
