Testimonials provided for CDP

Mark Firmin and his team at Cumbria Damp Proofing were terrific.

Mark came round and undertook a detailed (free) survey of the areas of concern. He explained the problems in plain English – his approach was unbiased and professional. He then sent me options, with attendant quotes and timescales, for the remedial work.

They undertook extensive repairs to the roof, guttering and chimney stacks, all to an excellent standard. Internally, they removed and disposed of the plaster from two large rooms, plaster-boarded and skimmed, again to an excellent standard – the plaster is as smooth as marble! They also resolved ad hoc problems as they came to light – for example, fixing two very poorly installed double glazed windows, changing damaged sockets (and adding one), and repairing a damp damaged section of ceiling in the outhouse.

Mark also advised me on ulterior issues, such as rewiring and woodworm. They cleaned up after each day’s work (including the pavement outside) and removed all debris. And … they finished the job on time and on budget.

Being new to the area, I had been wary of employing unknown builders. But I have been left impressed beyond all expectation! In short, I thoroughly recommend Cumbria Damp Proofing!

Mrs Case - Millom

Mark and his team were brilliant. After buying an old property, I arranged for Mark to come round and give me a free quote. Mark explained clearly and honestly what was wrong and how problems could be fixed. There was never any pressure to go ahead with the work, and when a very competitive, fully itemised quote came through, I phoned up straight away to book in.

When the team arrived they were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The quality of work was exceptional and because of this I arranged for them to do an ever increasing number of jobs. These included work to the damp proof coursing, re-roofing half the property (inc a flat roofed section), re-rendering the chimney stacks, fumigating under the floorboards, they even sourced and installed a traditional fireplace!

I will definitely be using Mark?s team again. I couldn?t praise them highly enough and would recommend Cumbria Damp Proofing Ltd to anyone.
C Griggs - Grange-over-Sands

Mark came to give me a free estimate. I found him very professional, genuine and approachable. I was invited to accompany Mark during his survey and was explained too in great detail my options to solve the problems. I definitely felt like a valued customer without any pushiness or pressure. The job went like clockwork with no delays and interruptions. I was kept informed at every stage. Mark rang me every evening to update me on progress and they left the house very clean and tidy when the work was finished.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cumbria Damp Proofing to anyone.
Miss Ryan - Ulverston

I was very happy with the service and workmanship I received from Mark at Cumbria Damp Proofing. The work went ahead as and when promised and the customer care was exceptional.
Mrs Griffiths - Ulverston

We wouldn't hesitate to use your company again. Great job, very efficient, good communication and above all... no mess.
Mrs Jones - Ambleside

We are delighted with the work Mark and his guys have done on our house. It’s great to know a tradesman like Mark who gives you such sound honest advice. We couldn’t have asked for a better service. I would have no hesitation about recommending you to anyone, actually we already have. I am sure with the amount of work required on our house we will be back in touch.
Cheryl - Ulverston

I would just like to thank both you, and the lads who worked with you, for the work you have done. Although we won't know whether it has been completely successful for a little while, I have been very impressed by the way that you have approached both the work itself and dealt with us as customers.

From the outset you have kept us fully informed and involved in the decisions that needed to be made, kept us up to date with the progress of the work, and had the flexibility and skill to adapt the project to deal with the inevitable complications that happened along the way.

The work has been carried out to a high standard, and you went to considerable lengths to minimise the disruption caused to us, and to clean up after each stage of the work.

So thank you once again - and please pass on my thanks to the lads.
Dave and Ruth, Nr Ulverston

We just want to say Thank You, to you and your team for the work done at our house, on Friars Lane, Barrow in Furness.

Now all decorating complete (which extended to the whole ground floor) it is like living in a new house. I compliment you on your team, very friendly and hardworking lads. Please thank them on our behalf.
Sheila & Tony Batty

CDP have been excellent. Their prices are competitive, the assessment of the job and their approach of setting out your options and giving impartial advice is indicative of the experience and attention to detail that you can expect. You will be kept informed through out the process and CDP do all that they can to carry work out promptly but at a time convenient to you as a customer.
Mr Thompson - Walney

We found Mark to be approachable, genuine and professional, from the initial estimates when all our options were explained to the finished job.

The job was started and finished on time and we were updated at all stages of the work. Mark’s workers were also courteous and helpful.

We would not hesitate to recommend CDP.
Mr & Mrs Shaw

We have recently had extensive work carried out at our property in Cartmel by Mark Firman and his team at Cumbria Damp Proofing Ltd. Throughout the whole process which took about a week, they were prompt, courteous and hard working. Mark communicated with us constantly, taking me up the scaffolding showing before, during and after situations, explaining everything and putting our minds at ease. At the end of the job, everywhere was left spick and span, and the work was completed within budget. Thank you Mark. We will certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to others requiring similar work in the future
David & Merryl

I wish to thank you for the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism shown from start to finish.
Mr Payne - Barrow In Furness

CDP performed a full damp proofing service (tanking solution) to my 2 bed cottage in Kendal. The whole team were professional and courteous and the whole project was efficiently managed by Mark.

Regular updates were given and photos emailed, often daily, showing progress. Certain aspects of the workscope had to be modified yet consultation and cost advice was always given ahead of time. The job on my house was extensive and it could easily have been done badly but CDP completed a project to the highest of standards and have left me with a secure damp free home.

I suspect they are the best in Cumbria.
Mr Duncan - Kendal

We were delighted with the way in which Mark Firmin of Cumbria Damp Proofing carried out recent renovations at our house in Barrow in Furness.

He and his team were consistently hard working and efficient. Mark supervised the job closely throughout and everything was completed meticulously and to very high standards. The site was left very neat and tidy at the end of each day’s work.

We found Mark very conscientious, courteous and approachable at all times and would happily recommend him and his team to others.
Mr & Mrs Omar

Marks company has recently redecorated the external surfaces of the Clubhouse at Ulverston Golf Club. I have to compliment Mark and his staff for the diligent and conscientious approach to the contract. Good safe working practices were adopted throughout the contract. Consideration was given at all times to golf Club staff, visitors and members. The end product a credit to his staff, a much needed facelift to the Club and a very satisfied customer.
C Dent - Honorary Secretary, Ulverston Golf Club

We were initially recommended to CDP by friends who were pleased with the work done for them. We were impressed with the excellent website and the reviews it contains.

Our work commenced with a professional initial survey by Mark of what needed to be done and the clearly detailed quote. This was followed by excellent work on site with the minimum mess both outside and inside the house, with protective sheeting as needed.

The final bill followed the detailed spec with no extras and we felt it represented good value for money. We feel CDP have followed the most logical approaches to stopping the damp issues we had and only time will tell if we have to do more. Thanks to Mark and his team.
Victor and Deborah

I found Mark an approachable person as soon as I met him. His honesty and professionalism shone through. All work that was carried out by Mark and his team, was to the highest standard, and at all times I was kept fully informed on progress being made. The outcome of the work, is so pleasing to us, and have no hesitation in recommending Cumbria Damp Proofing LTD, for any work to be undertaken.
Mr Hewson - Barrow In Furness
