Richards has over 25 years surveying experience.
He started his career in the timber trade before joining one of the leading national preservation companies where he trained as a surveyor.
In 2002 Richard decided to branch out and run his own business.
Always polite and professional Richard is happy to answer any questions you might have.
When Richard isn’t climbing through roof voids he can be found in the Lakes climbing mountains or walking the fells.
Sarah is our area manager based at our Durham and Newton Aycliffe offices. She oversees the running of all branches which often mean trips around the North East, North West and North Yorkshire – can’t be bad!
Sarah brings a wealth of managerial experience and qualifications, making her an integral part of Damp Stop. She enjoys cooking and baking and often turns up with a box of delicious cakes!
John Carroll Snr
John is a multi talented tradesman. He began his career in plastering and has developed many other skills with over 30 years in building works.
John currently now oversees all our operatives on site throughout the north east.
If John isn’t ‘grafting’ he isn’t happy. He loves nothing more than to undertake projects at home. Whether it be building something for the kids or redecorating for the Mrs!
