Dry Rot Treatment, Shrewsbury
Project Location: Shrewsbury, February 2020.
Project Description: Parquet flooring dry rot.
The Solution: Fungicidal chemical and epoxy floor coating.
Our Dry Rot Solution for Shrewsbury
This job was recently completed in Shrewsbury for new customers who had just moved into a new home. The parquet floor had been originally laid on a concrete substrate. Unfortunately, the concrete substrate had developed dampness over the years. This resulted in the wooden parquet floor showing signs of a dry rot attack. Sadly, the parquet floor could not be saved. We reluctantly removed the parquet flooring and cleaned down the area to remove all signs of the dry rot.
In such cases, it is important to ensure all traces of the fungus are completely removed. So we treated the concrete substrate with a fungicidal chemical for dry rot to prevent the fungus returning. An epoxy floor coating was then applied to the concrete substrate to help prevent future dampness resulting from water ingress from below the new floor.

“Excellent job, friendly and polite team of 5. Kept us informed of progress. Cleaned up afterwards. I would use them again.”
The guys from DPS carried out excellent damp proofing and timber preservation work at my mother's house recently and were very knowledgable and helpful. It's so refreshing to come across such a friendly and professional team who were also respectful of my Mum's property and cleaned up and hovered at the end of the work - we were very impressed! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone needing this type of work doing. Thank you to all the team.
My parents received an excellent service from this company. All members of the team were professional, polite and highly skilled. They worked quickly, efficiently and left the room clean and tidy. We would thoroughly recommend Damp Proofing Solutions.

This company was first class, they did an excellent job of my pantry and hallway. The work was good. Helpful guys who didn't leave a mess. Cleaned up after themselves and went the extra mile to make sure I was happy before they left!
The job was carried out so quickly meaning only 1 day of interruption. The 3 men who did the work were all friendly, professional and helpful and completed the job to a high standard. Also impressed with how clean & tidy they left our house. Will be using again for future work.
All our interactions with DPS suggest the positive reviews are well deserved. After contact, DPS said there was a £150 fee to provide a full verbal report, recommendation, cost and timing of works. The £150 fee is offset against works done. This was money well spent for us, because of the in-depth analysis provided, but this may not suit everyone. Their specialist, Adam, was thorough in assessing our house. He took numerous readings and gave a full outline of what was needed, which options DPS could do and what the likely outcomes would be. We went ahead with installing 2 9x6" air bricks in each gable end. Adam kindly arranged to do this quickly to fit our needs. Tom and Luke arrived at the time stated and did a superb job - as mentioned by others they are polite, tidy and efficient etc. They are excellent workers. The air bricks resolved our problem. At all times comms were excellent, even after we had paid and Adam was responsive to any points we raised. A written statement of works was provided afterwards. Overall, I rate this company very highly. Everything was done as and when stated to a high standard. Interestingly, our house was independently surveyed after and the surveyor stated this was the best option, and the one he would have recommended. This was reassuring. In summary, an excellent experience.
