DAVID REYNOLDS – CSRT CSSW
Surveyor, Consultant and Principal Director
I founded the business in 1996, and have developed it to become among the most recognised and established building preservation companies in Cornwall.
Day-to-day, I undertake all consultancy work, surveys inspections; personally compile all reports, specifications and quotations; and attend to site management.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“we can hardly believe our old, damp cellar is now a wonderfully dry, cosy games room for the kids”
“The team were efficient and polite, and did a really great job. They were very tidy too”
“David is refreshingly free of any tendency to over-specify or to recommend work which is unnecessary”
“We had been confused by conflicting advice about our damp issue previously, but David really understood what we wanted and what our old house needed”.
“we were very pleased with the service, from start to finish”.
“We always contract David Reynolds for all our basement waterproofing jobs. He’ll always design a simple and effective system and we like the insured long-term guarantee”.
CORONAVIRUS - COVID.19.
With a second wave of Coronavirus quickly developing, surveys and site inspections will be undertaken strictly on a risk-assessed basis and only when considered to be urgent.
Urgent surveys may include pre-purchase surveys or where there is significant active water ingress or active dry-rot.
All non-urgent surveys should be deferred until the Coronavirus transmission risk is considered to have ceased.
WE ARE PRESENTLY LIMITING SURVEYS, INSPECTIONS AND ANY REMEDIAL WORK TO PROPERTIES WHICH ARE UNOCCUPIED
In many cases we can provide advice and estimates based on sufficient photographs or drawings etc which can be emailed to us directly.
We are still providing our popular desktop waterproofing design service.
