What Customers Say

"Saved us a lot of money"

We had been told that our house had rising damp and the quote to fix this was £20000. Before agreeing to this work we felt we should obtain an independent survey from a company not trying to sell you their product. A search on Internet led us to ARS and we are so pleased that we asked this company to do our survey.

Ray Baker carried out the survey on our property and his report promptly followed. The report offered a clear assessment and recommendations for management of condensation, NOT rising damp, and saved us a lot of money in the process.

"Highly recommended"

I can highly recommend Academy Remedial Surveyors. Ray Baker surveyed a house that I am buying and he provided a detailed report which explained everything I needed to know about the damp and timber issues with the property. Also, many companies could learn a lot about customer service from Jenny Baker who was always very professional, prompt and friendly when I contacted her. more customer comments
