Below are some reviews we have received from customers:
We used Alpha Damp Proofing to deal with a damp problem in our home. The service was excellent. The men who came to our home worked cleanly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend them without hesitation! I have felt it necessary to write to you as the owner of the above company. As you are aware having had a lengthy discussion with myself I moved into a property in February 2012 with my partner. It soon became apparent due to the age of the house that there would be an element of work required, in particular Damp Proof Course if we were to decorate the relevant rooms and hope that it remained that way, however to our annoyance having decorated one of the main rooms, the damp within the walls spoilt it throughout as at the time there were no obvious signs of damp. As a result of this I am delighted that this issue has been rectified by yourself conducting the work required. I now have DPC in my dining room and living room which has been treated for these 'salts' that were showing on the wall, rendered with the relevant mix and re-plastered to an absolute excellent standard. As a result of this and your personal and professional approach combined with reasonable prices compared with other companies I would highly recommend you to anybody. Recently I have had a laminate floor fitted by yourself , once again this was quality work and went very well on the choice of colour which I am pleased to say goes exceptionally well with my divider doors you also fitted. As a result of this quality work and hard working family business I, along with my partner have decided to have a little more work done on the house. It is without doubt who we shall choose to carry this out as we are both more than happy that you will quote and carry out the work with the care and consideration you have shown in the past. May I thank you for the work done and the forthcoming arrangements for further work. All the best.

I have used Earls Plasterers and Builders since 2005 for both large and small building maintenance work including: plastering, rendering, replacement of fireplaces, loft work, total roof replacement and exterior painting. I have always been highly satisfied, both by the quality of the work and the thoughtful and efficient care taken by Darren and his team. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Dear Darren, I'd like to thank you for the outstanding job you recently completed for us. We were experiencing damp issues which were causing a mess on some of the ground floor walls. This was a job I was dreading due to the messy nature of the work and the disruption it causes. I didn't need to worry, you guided me through the process of what will happen and after each day was complete you left our house very clean and tidy. The finish of the plaster work after the treatment had been applied is exceptional, I've been really impressed with everything you have done from start to finish. I will not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family when the opportunity arises. I'm already looking at getting you back to complete some other work on our house. Thanks again Darren.

We used Alpha Damp Proofing to insulate the walls of our new home. The work was completed to a very high standard and we were very pleasantly surprised at how clean our home was left after the works were completed. We will be using Alpha again and would recommend them to anyone.
M Haynes, Alsager - July 2014
I have been really impressed with Darren and his team from my initial contact with Alpha Damp Proofing through to the work being completed. Darren visited my cottage to quote me on the work required very promptly (compared to others) and explained everything thoroughly. During the work, he kept me well informed and was professional, friendly and courteous. I was dreading the disruption and mess that the damp treatment and replastering would create but they were really tidy and I can't fault them. I am really pleased with the work they have done and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anybody. I hope I don't need you in future (but with a very old cottage you never know!), but if I do, you will be the first and only people I contact. Thanks again.

We found Darren to be a fully professional and pleasant tradesman who throughout the work kept us fully informed as to what was going on and the outcome. We encountered quite a severe damp problem that had gone on for several years. The previous owners had not dealt with this problem. We therefore had to employ someone to remedy this and get to the heart of the problem. We were very satisfied with the professional work carried out and now have rectified all the damp issues thankfully! We would fully recommend his services and would not hesitate to employ him in the future.
Mr & Mrs Smith, Moreton Avenue, Clayton - January 2015
My downstairs toilet and utility area has been completely transformed by Darren. I could not believe my luck in finding someone who could not only treat the damp problem but also complete all the necessary refurbishment (insulate the walls/ceiling, plastering, tile the floor, fit new toilet, fit new toilet door and frame, re-plumb washing machine). All of this work has been done to a high standard and in a very professional and pleasant manner. Darren kept me informed along the way and provided advice/suggestions when and where necessary. Darren is already lined up for the refurbishment of my kitchen. Darren is definitely the man for the job and I have no problem in recommending his work.

After approaching numerous, so called, damp proof companies & individuals, I rang " Alpha Damp Proofing " with a degree of quiet despair! The owner/director, Darren Earl, instantly conveyed a phone manner of calm, non-pushy professionalism that instilled trust; upon surveying our property he displayed a ready comprehension of the problems and, with quick thinking, a succinct summary of the required work. Soon, two competitively priced invoices came via email. Work was promptly undertaken and executed with an inspiring thoroughness and efficiency with no job being too big or small. For example: trouble was taken to dump household items; to clear outside and in as a preparation to, and during damp course treatment; cleaning after each days gruelling work was commendable. Mr Earl even assisted us in purchasing a good quality laminate which was, miraculously, laid in the duration of nine hours during a heatwave! Now, I and, my family, are delighted by our new living area! Finally,the team is made up of family and friends which results in a rare synergy. In a world of shambolic, below par workmanship and dodgy deals it is, indeed, heartening to encounter a business of old-fashioned courtesy, trust and exemplary skills. Earl's Plasterers & General Builders, we thank you and raise a glass to your health!
