What a great experience I had with this service. So nice to find a reliable company who give honest prices and do the job they say they are going to do. I have had a damp problem at my home in Ipswich for over a decade so thought it might be too big of a job to sort out but they did a perfect job overall, including the plastering and even cleaned up afterwards. Very professional team and I am very happy with the results.

I had tried a few builders before to look at my condensation issue and none of them seemed to know what was causing it so I tried this specialist damp proofing company instead. I am very pleased I did because Karl and his team knew straight away what the problems were and I had in fact two issues, which were penetrating damp and also dry rot. I was very impressed with their in-depth knowledge and also the expertise of the builders. The price was also far more competitive than I thought it would be which is great in these current times.

Karl and Jamie really are a credit to the company and to the industry in general. I don't think I have ever encountered a company that is as professional but also has the expertise in their own field! Fixed my downpipe leak, crack in the wall, damp inside from the crack and replastered to perfection. I was also very impressed with the procedures they have in place with masks and being safe in the current climate

I called a few local companies in Ipswich for treatment of the mould in my property. This company carried out damp control and also some basement waterproofing which solved all of the issues.

Karl's team did an excellent job. I honestly wish I could give more than 5 stars, it was that good. The experience of the customer service, work carried out and demeanour of the very polite staff was an absolute pleasure to deal with and very refreshing. I had an issue with some black mould on my bedroom ceilings that I had applied damp paint continually for years. After coming to the realisation that I was just covering it up, I called Ipswich Damp Proofing and they came out to do a survey. The best decision I have made for a long time. I was given, what I thought was a very fair price and a timescale to start and finish the work. They literally carried out the work to the exact time promised and also all done with a pleasant and friendly manner. They worked under strict social distancing

I felt like the staff that came to put in a DPC at my house were very polite and trustworthy people. They diagnosed the damp problem promptly and after a written quotation, carried out the work with little fuss and were totally professional.

Great service. Kept me informed on every step of the process and most importantly gave me a free quotation before work commenced for fixing my damp, which other companies don't always do

Very prompt and extremely efficient service given for my rising damp problem. The gentleman who arrived gave a competitive quote and there was a fast turn around on doing the job. I wouldn't hesitate in using the company again or recommending.

What Customers Ask?

Here are some of the most popular questions we get asked by our customers and also with general enquiries.

This can be possible but quite often, DIY products bought online are inferior to the professional damp proofing products we use to fix damp issues. It’s not only the quality of the product that can be an issue but also the application. We have had decades in the industry, which enables us to use products and chemicals in the correct way and these methods will give customers the peace of mind that work has been done right and correctly. Added to that is the fact that we offer a full workmanship guarantee on top of the warranty supplied from the product manufacturers.

The industry average is £280 to £2000 for a damp proof course, depending on the size of the property. There are also many types of individual and unique mould and damp problems that need a more specialised touch and costs can vary immensely on this depending on the issue at hand. We pride ourselves on being one of the most competitive damp proofers in Ipswich and the sector in general.

There are many ways to detect damp but there are also many clues within your home, like a must smell, mould or mildew, peeling wallpaper, feeling cold or damp, condensation on windows, water on UPVC and discolouration on walls and ceilings. Fungus, rising damp and other similar issues are pretty obvious sometimes so it is easy to know when to call out a professional company like ours. If you have any suspicions of any damp being prevalent in your house, then get in touch sooner rather than later to avoid any structural damage being caused to your property.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is another type of damp that affects a large number of buildings. Penetrating damp is classed as any water that finds its way inside the property from the outside and can occur at all levels and heights of the building

Rising Damp

Rising damp is a common problem in Suffolk properties and the process of rising damp is that when the moisture is drawn into the brick of the building and travels up the walls through capillary action.

Rotting Timber

Many issues can arise when damp is left untreated such as wet rot, woodworm and dry rot. These issues are detrimental for your property, and health by using our Ipswich Damp Proofing services you can prevent this from happening.


Condensation and mould growth are widespread problems in all housing sectors, but especially so in tenanted accommodation. In many cases it may be difficult to identify the underlying causes; this can often be complicated by social issues.

After sending Karl some pictures of the problem I had with flaking plaster on a wall, he sent me an email outlining the problem which will be easily fixed. So very helpful and knowledgeable. Problem solved. I highly recommend this company.
