  • Rendering and painting10Verified Review Gary kindly did me a quote for some work that needed doing and gave me a lot of advice and guidance too. He told me how to pitch a complaint to the builders of the house as well as who to contact at NHBC, MK Council and a surveyor. Hopefully the issue will be resolved by the builder, if not Gary will be our first point of call. Really lovely guy.

  • External cork insulation10Verified Review I looked at K Rend and external insulation before I met Gary who does all types of insulation. We discussed the merits and pitfalls for each type and, in the end, I agreed that cork insulation would be best for my Victorian mid- terrace. Gary explained all the steps and the cork insulation process has not disappointed. It is worth obtaining colour samples from the manufacturer, corksoluk, as the colours aren’t quite the same as their brochure. One thing I was particularly pleased about was Gary’s flexibility in painting below my damp course blue to go with the sky cork. Thanks!

  • Amazing service – nothing too much10Verified Review From the damp injection and render for one wall to the preparation of all walls, the ‘sky’ blue spray insulation and tidying up afterwards, Gary’s team was impeccable. I didn’t want a layer of black painted under my damp proof course so Gary used a complementary blue giving me a seaside feel which I love. It was worth asking for colour samples as the ‘sky’ blue isn’t as bright as the online brochure shows. Gary insulated my neighbour’s alleyway wall a different colour as that is my left hand (cold) wall. Thanks – I have recommended you to my friends already. Looking forward to a warm winter

  • Awkward job done really well10Verified Review Had Corksol applied to the rendered areas of the outside of my house. Probably about 2/3 of it in total. Some areas are very tight and awkward to get to, but these guys used a combination of close range equipment and sheer determination to get the job done. I’m really happy with the result. The house looks stunning and feels quieter (that will be due to the insulating properties of the CorkSol). Looking forward to it being warmer in winter and cooler in the heat too. Fabulous job. Can highly recommend these guys and so far very pleased with the product

  • Thermal cork insulation (“SprayCork”) for the exterior walls of my house5Verified Review My primary aim was to apply thermal cork insulation to the accessible exterior walls of my small detached property. Traditional ‘block’ insulation was not possible as a result of a narrow side passage. Not only do I now have SprayCork, I chose the bold “Denim” colour and my house looks strikingly different. Gary, Dean and Ben did an excellent job. They were very diligent, masking all of my (and neighbouring) windows, wall furniture etc. They were curteous to the many passers by who asked about the work. I am very happy with their work and would highly recommend Universal Painters .

  • Exterior painting of house75Verified Review We are happy with the overall painting and the sprayed resin paint finish is really good (and guaranteed for 20 years). Gary and the team were all very friendly and we were grateful they fitted us in as we know they are very busy. Given the need to render some cracks, and that we are told it won’t need repainting for many years we think the price was good. We have found that some paint has sprayed on other surfaces for example the garden gate and the finish wasn’t perfect but they worked efficiently and hard and amazingly job took less than two days. Whole house looks much brighter thank you

No money was requested up front and we were happy to pay in full (via bank transfer) as soon as the job was completed. Top marks, they are a great little company.

  • External Wall InsulationInsulationI recently engaged Universal Damp Solutions for the insulation of my home’s external wall using their spray-on insulation. The experience was outstanding.
Their team worked efficiently and quickly, showcasing professionalism and commitment to customer satisfaction. The process caused minimal disruption.
What impressed me was their flexibility in colour selection, allowing the insulation to blend with my home’s aesthetics. This attention to detail set them apart.
The entire process was hassle-free. They provided clear communication, professionalism, and expertise. It was evident that they valued customers and delivered quality workmanship.
Their 25-year guarantee provided peace of mind, showing confidence in their products and services. It protected my investment.
In conclusion, I highly recommend Universal Damp Solutions for their exceptional service and insulation solutions. Their efficient work, customizability, and guarantee make them reliable. I will contact them for future insulation needs.

My husband and I have recently bought a house in Chesham and the Building report said that the house had some walls with damp. Gary came and he could tell me precisely where the damp was, the causes of it, explaining that some kinds of bricks from different generations and manufacturers are more vulnerable to penetrating/rising damp. And the most important thing he gave me important advice about the maintenance of the property short, medium and long term.
I know that it is recent days for me to evaluate the results in the damp but I am very happy with his professionalism so far.

  • Damp proofing needed, costings requiredDamp ProofingNo nonsense, listened to my needs, advised me what I needed to do before hand. Turned up on time, worked around another tradesman on site. In and out, no fuss and a really nice team to do business with.

It’s difficult with this kind of work to know if its successful long term but I have every faith in them and wouldn’t hesitate to contact and hire them again, and recommend them to others. Thanks guys, I really appreciate your help!

  • Damp problem in a chimney breastDamp ProofingTotally brilliant and lovely guy. Felt honest, up front and professional. He was very quick to reply to my post. He was great at communication and kept to his word. From posting the ad to getting the job done was less than 24hrs! he was quick and left the treated damp area clean and tidy. Also very considerate to the fact I had two young children and offered advise on how to keep them away from the effected area etc.
Definitely use him again if his skills were required.

  • Quote for treating damp in front bay windowDamp ProofingGary and his team did a great job at a fair price, quoting for what was needed rather than bumping up the job (and price!) which is a refreshing change. The job was completed exactly as we agreed, to a high standard and at the price quoted also.
Gary’s communication and service was great. His experience and knowledge of the job was excellent and he took the time to explain the job and the aftercare fully to me.
Thank-you, Gary. I’d highly recommend your work to others.
