A damp proof specialist will first survey the property to assess what proofing you will require. Their assessment will highlight the causes of any ongoing damp problems, such as hidden leaks or structural issues. They can then give you a recommendation for the best damp-proofing methods, which they will likely offer to help you arrange. It may be that you need to have the plastering in your home touched up. Get a quote from them but do not commit to anything until you have others to compare it with.
Damp can be a difficult problem to solve, and so it is important that you look for customer reviews when comparing your potential hires. In the past have they done thorough inspections?
