I employed Ty Fleming ''Allied Damp Solutions'' in spring 2017, to look at a problem I was having with damp and mould in my apartment in Ballsbridge.
It had been an ongoing problem, with paint jobs to try to cover, with mould increasing...and now spreading to more walls.
I was at my wits end.
Another non specialist contractor had suggested putting in windows with vents that "should" help the problem... he offered no assurance or guarantee whatsoever for the price he quoted. Ty , on the other hand was more than expert in the way he appraised the problem, and came up with solutions. He assured me the vented windows, would not be a solution and that recycling the internal air to the outside , using a duct system for air flow was the only solution to fully resolve the problem, once and for all.
Ty and his men worked incredibly hard to put the system in place...and had to accommodate for a very old building, and difficult work conditions to get the job completed.
Ty was more than helpful, and readily came up with solutions there and then. Bit of a wizard with solutions.
As I am living abroad, I really had to trust that Ty would treat the job with great care, as though it was his own apartment, as I wasn't there to oversee.
Ty's experience working in this field for years, was vital. The other quote I got was from a regular building contractor, who obviously did not really understand the issue, and though passive airflow was enough to resolve.
I am really thankful to Ty and his men for solving this issue for me. Am so grateful I no longer have to worry about the mould issue from here on in . Ty really knows what he is doing.
I would highly recommend Ty to friends and family in the future
Thanks again Ty for everything
"As first time buyers purchasing a home, hearing the words rising damp from our surveyor was terrifying. However as soon as I spoke with Ty from Allied Damp Solutions, I started to feel better. He came out to the property very promptly and surveyed the whole house. He even identified woodworm in the attic something our surveyor had missed. He prepared a quote for us and explained all the works required in depth which made the process less daunting. After the purchase of the property Ty completed the works required in an extremely tight deadline. He was very easy to deal with, showed up exactly when he said he would and completed the work lightening fast. Would definitely recommend to anyone."
Ty and his team at Allied Damp Solutions carried out woodworm treatment in our newly purchased 3 bed Victorian terraced property with extreme professionalism and efficiency. After an initial consultation in which the treatment process was explained in detail, they treated the entire property within one day and left the house exactly as they had found it, with all floorboards etc back in place. This excellent work was also carried out for a very competitive price. We would recommend Allied Damp Solutions without hesitation, and indeed, plan to work with them again for some essential damp proofing in the future. Thank you Ty and colleagues for helping us to turn our house into our dream home!

I asked Ty from Allied Damp Solutions last year to have a look at a property for me which had an ongoing problem with mould and condensation; I had spoken to other tradesmen which all gave me conflicting advice. After meeting Ty and going through what needed to be done in order solve the problem his proposal made the most sense. I have since used Ty and his company on another property had have enjoyed the same results. I have no reservations in recommending Allied Damp Solutions and should I have a damp problem Ty will be my first port of call.

I was always very dubious about tradesman has I have had my share of "characters" in the past, Allied Damp where to put it mildly a nice change from the norm, they turned up on time and left my home spotless when the work completed, top marks !!!.

Every year my home suffered with mould, I was told by anyone I spoke to it was my lifestyle and the only thing I could do was to keep the windows open. Every winter it got worse. When Ty called to my home he spoke to me in great detail and I am delighted with his workmanship and the results.

I had a ongoing problem with condensation in a Apartment and couldn't find the solution until I contacted Allied Damp Solutions .Ty after inspecting the Apartment was able to tell me the best option by introducing a ventilation system within the Apartment to deal with the problem, as a result I have a dwelling with a good air flow running through it ,and contented tenants. I would highly recommend Ty and his team.

From the time that we received a house visit to the costing, we were impressed with Ty and his professionalism. He immediately identified the issue due to his knowledge and experience. We receive a fully comprehensive breakdown of the issue and a reasonable quote for the work. We were happy to engage the company's services and I can highly recommend using them as the work carried out was exactly as described as well as a totally clean house to return to after the work was complete. Since the work has been complete we have noticed a difference in the air quality in the house.

I am the landlord of a house in Crumlin. For a number of years my tenant has had problems with the growth of mould on the ceiling and walls in some of the rooms. I tried a number of ways to treat the problem, such as cleaning down the areas and painting over them with anti-mould products. They worked for a while but the mould always eventually reappeared, and in the same areas. I eventually contacted Ty at Allied Damp Solutions. He made an appointment to visit the house .On completion of the survey he was able to advise me of the causes of the mould problem, and the best way to treat it. He was also able to give me a total cost for the job he would do. Details of the survey and the cost were confirmed in an email a few days later. I decided to get Ty to do the job and I must say he did a most professional and on time job. The whole job was finished in one day and the house was left in a cleaner state than before he had started. The tenant is happy and I am happy to recommend Ty for his professional service

Allied Damp Solutions has done a couple of jobs for me, the first being in early 2008 Allied Damp Solutions injected damp proofing materials and treated timbers on a house I was working on. I chose him for the project because he's very professional in his work and manner and he gave a good account of where his experience came from. He's the professional and that's what you rely on. As a builder overseeing the whole job, I've got my own situation to manage. I mainly left the damp proofing decisions to them. I trusted that the job would be done right. That's the kind of confidence you get when you bring someone like Allied Damp Solutions in. With Allied Damp it's 100% reliability. Let me put it this way, when he says he's going to be here, he's here.

Myself and my wife moved in to our new house in 2007 and almost immediately we realised that the house suffered from mould. The bathrooms and bedrooms were really bad and even the blinds were turning black. The attic had serious water runs on felt and we had to cover everything with plastic to keep it dry. Over the years we had roofers, builders, plumbers and every conceivable expert eye look at the issue and give their opinion. Nothing that these various people offered as advise or opinion worked and we were left frustrated and disappointed. Our eureka moment came when a family member had a conversation with a friend who'd had similar issues to us. They had solved the problem by speaking with Ty in Allied Damp Solutions. What really stuck home from the conversation was that these people has a child with asthma and that the fix that Allied Damp Solutions had implemented had helped alleviate the child's condition. We have a son who suffers from asthma so needless to say this really interested us. We contacted Ty and within the same week he was out at the house and immediately diagnosed the issue. The humidity in the house was off the charts and the house was not breathing.When the guys were finished the same day & the results were simply incredible. The water runs in the attic disappeared, the air was fresher and cleaner upstairs, the mould is gone with no sign of coming back & our sons chest settled down and so far has been greatly improved. Of all the various home improvements we've made over the years this will remain the most important. If you are having any of the issues that we had then I highly recommend giving Ty a call. We did and we haven't looked back!

‘Within the very first year of moving into my apartment I noticed
damp around the bedroom and ensuite windows. Over time I tried a
number of home remedies but nothing worked and to be honest I was just
finding it all very stressful.
One day, determined to sort it, I googled damp problems and I came
across Allied Damp Solutions. I spoke to Ty and I explained about the
problems I was having with damp and condensation. He called to my
apartment the next evening to assess the issue.
It was very clear from the outset that Ty was an expert in this field
and knew exactly what he was talking about. I can honestly say it was
the most informative 30 minutes of my life. And when he said it was
definitely something he could sort, I immediately felt a weight
lifting from my shoulders.
I proceeded with having the ventilation system installed. Ty was very
accommodating and carried out the work at a time that suited me. The
work was completed to a very high standard and my apartment was left
To say I am delighted with the ventilation system is an
understatement, I noticed the difference in condensation on the
windows the very next morning, as in there was none! I am just sorry I
didn’t have it installed years ago.
I could not recommend Ty or his team at Allied Damp Solution any more
highly, they really have made such a difference to my apartment and in
turn, to me.
Sincere thanks again for everything
