We had a case of suspected dry rot in our roof. Nigel was quick to come round and diagnose the problem. I have had a terrible case of dry rot in the past in another flat and so I know something about the issue, and it was immediately clear that Nigel is deeply knowledgeable. He gave us the great news that it was not dry rot. He advised my roofer what to do and talked him through various issues (roofer was very keen to learn some things from him); talked to us about all the structural quirks of this 215 year old building. He was immensely generous with his time. If ever have any building problems in the future, Nigel will be my first port of call. now totally understand why all his reviews are 5 stars!

ROSEMARY HARMA

Very professional service from ADPC when we needed specialist advice due to a water leak from the flat above. Nigel was always responsive and prompt. He explained everything in detail and offered technical advice.

DEREK SHARP

We were very impressed with the comprehensive survey Nigel gave our property after issues with damp, wood rot and woodworm – as well as his in-depth knowledge and suggestions. The work he carried out for us was installing insulation, new flooring and timber treatments. Nigel was incredibly helpful, reliable, professional and tidy. And we would highly recommend ADPC Property Care for anyone who had issues with damp in their property.
