We understand and we want to help
You are probably in a tense, stressful situation, having had either your home or business premises damaged. We understand what you’re going through.
We have over 20 years and over 1000 claims of experience helping people in the exact same situation you are in right now.
Insurance companies may reject claims on technical grounds or attempt to disrupt claim settlement by using confusing terminology and jargon to avoid paying out.
Working for you and not the insurer, we know exactly how to prepare, negotiate and settle your claim, communicate with your insurance company and liaise with any insurers representatives & loss adjusters.
Wouldn’t it be great to find someone who is in your corner, working with you who can take care of everything to make your life easier and without it costing you additional fees?
Would you like someone to step in and just “get it all done” for you?
That’s what we do – and the best part for building damage repair claims: you don’t pay us anything more than your policy excess, which insurers may ask us to collect as part of a settlement or a repair invoice.

“Following a theft of lead flashing from our commercial building, we suffered a large flood of water following a storm over the weekend in two of our office suites. Graham and his team arrived the next day and took complete control of the situation, removing wet and damaged material and set up dehumidifiers and driers to help stop build of humidity.
We were so pleased with the work we asked the team to undertake further private works involving structural alterations and the removal of internal partitions, work that we had been putting off.”
