Glenys & Brian, Spennymoor

“We used Peter Moody Building Contracts to undertake a large refurbishment of a property for. The
whole process was completed on time and on budget. We are very happy with the standard of work,
and would have no hesitation in using this company again. Many thanks.”

Martin, G.H. Management, Wallsend

I called Peter Moody after discovering rising damp in a flat which I had just
purchased. Dealing with damp can be quite distressing, but Peter put my mind to rest
straight away. He inspected the site and gave me a quote for the work he felt was
necessary. The quote was reasonable and I felt assured that the issues would be
resolved in a proper manner. This all turned out to be the case. The work was
carried out soon afterwards to my absolute satisfaction. Not only were the guys who
did the work pleasant to deal with, but they took care of the flat and made sure
everything was cleaned up both during and after the work was completed.
Should I have any other building issues that require expert advice, I would not
hesitate in contacting Peter, as I would trust him to give me a fair and honest opinion.
I can t thank Peter enough for getting the damp proofing work done quickly, and so
well, and for providing me with a guarantee. I have no hesitation in recommending
him. Best regards

Louise Devlin

I am delighted to state how happy we were with the work carried out at our address.
We had a problem with ‘Dry Rot’. We needed to have a staircase removed, the whole
area treated for the dry rot then sterilised, plastered and the walls made good. Finally
the new staircase was fitted.
We were very happy with the whole project, not only the actual work but also the fact
we were kept informed of dates and times the work was to be carried out. The two
lads ‘Neville and Mick’ were very friendly and professional.
I could not recommend this company more highly. Thank you.

Jeff… Newcastle.

From telephoning Peter Moody he took very little time before coming out to look at
two of our properties which were suffering from damp, and to provide a quote for the
job. I knew how professional he was as he not only looked at the problem, but he
drew plans of the areas affected, together with measurements. He explained
everything to me including advice what to do after the job was completed to reduce
further occurrences of damp. Our properties are circa 15th century.
He was very quick in providing the quote, and following my acceptance of the
quotes, he agreed a start date which avoided inconvenience for the property residents.
Peter’s men kept me advised on the progress and showed me what was being done to
remedy the problem. Peter’s men completed the work to an excellent standard and
worked with respect.
Although it was a messy job the men tried their best to leave things as clean and tidy
as possible. All the rubbish and debris was removed. I felt confident that the work
done would avoid the damp returning. Peter provides a guarantee that the damp will
not return. I have no hesitation in recommending Peter.

J. Wheeler… Chairman, Witton Tower Management Limited

I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter Moody Building Contracts to
anyone looking for a solution to problems with damp. I was given a very competitive
estimate and the work was carried out promptly and to a high standard, you can’t ask
for any more

B. Watson… Howden le Wear, Crook

Just wanted to say thank you for the works carried out.

Damp course completed, house dried out and now painted, thanks for the being tidy throughout the job. A job well done.

I have passed your number on and I would call on you again if I were to buy a property with similar issues. Again thanks for the prompt and tidy work, great result. Regards.

Mac & Jane, Morpeth

Peter was polite, friendly and professional. He treated our home with respect while he carefully carried out damp proof work and we would not hesitate to recommend him.

N & L Lawrence Jones, Greater Manchester

From my initial contact with him, through to the works completed at our house, I have found Peter Moody to be very reliable and efficient. He came and quoted when he said he would, provided a competitive quote, even for additional works, and kept me informed at every step.
The men that came on the day to do the bulk of the work were polite, efficient and very hardworking. All works were carried out as per the quote. I would recommend Peter Moody to others needing similar wall tie work. Kind regards.

Anita Graves, Macclesfield

Thank you and your team for a first class service. Your wealth of experience when completing the survey was obvious and gave me great confidence in both the damp proofing and timber treatment needed.

You were punctual and completed the job on time. Very neat and tidy with surprising little mess. Thanks again.

James, Hexham

Peter and his team undertook a lower ground floor damp proofing on my new house. Peter came out as agreed to inspect the property and provide a quotation and followed this up with a written quote and plan detailing the work to be undertaken and what was involved, which was all explained to me clearly.

I was very pleased with the quality of the work. They finished on time (in just a couple of days) and kept the mess and disruption to an absolute minimum. A 20 year guarantee for the work was also issued after completion. Very thorough and professional job and Peter was great to deal with.

Highly recommended. Many thanks.

Chontelle, Gosforth

We have no hesitation in recommending Peter Moody and his team. We are so grateful for the way he rescued our kitchen renovation project after we found damp in all four walls.

I still can’t believe he treated the whole kitchen plus another patch of damp in one day, finishing off very early the next morning so the flooring people could come as arranged. Amazing!

M. Harding, Durham

Could I thank you and your team for your excellent damp proofing work.

The work was carried out promptly, to an exceptionally high standard, at a very realistic price, leaving very little mess.

The cottage is 136 years old, built with solid brick walls, sitting directly on clay with no damp course, and has suffered very badly over the years from the ingress of rising damp.
Other contractors have tried numerous methods of control in the past, using various techniques to contain it, but have never met with a great deal of success. This of course has led to a great deal of expense and frustration.

However it does appear that this time it has worked, and we feel very confident that we now have the answer to the problem, but only time will tell, and we do have a 30 year guarantee.

Could I also thank your team for the effort put in to tidy up after the event, it was very much appreciated. Regards.


We had rising damp in 3 rooms in our house. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter Moody Building Contracts to rectify any damp problems. The work was carried out professionally, quickly and to our total satisfaction.

Neville and Michael arrived on time, were very pleasant and clearly knew what they were doing. Like all good workmen they cleared up after themselves.

D. Long, Willington, County Durham

We are very pleased with the work undertaken by Peter Moody and his team. The nature of the work involved the removal of concrete flooring and wall plaster from a basement area of the house which required re-tanking and lagging of a toilet and utility area. The workmen had to work in a very tight enclosed area with limited ventilation and all of the rubble had to be carried through the main part of the house.

Considering the extent of the work and the volume of rubble and dust that had to be removed, there was minimal disruption and dust transfer to the rest of the house. This was largely due to the care and consideration of the workmen and the methods employed for the job.

The products and processes used by P. Moody were of a very high specification and we are very pleased with the completed work, which was completed within the agreed timescales and budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter Moody for any similar sub-terrain and damp proof work.

I & B Harrison, Durham

I have to say I’m very happy with the work you’ve done for me. The lads were quick, very tidy and the plaster finish is excellent. I’m glad you’re also taking on my next project. Thanks.

M. Christian-Chance, North Shields

P. Moody Building Contracts have provided a wonderful professional service.

I first contacted Peter Moody (who was recommended to me) after I had a poor experience with a different damp proofing company, that lead to the work needing to be redone on my property.
I am a 66 year old female and live alone so I was very concerned/anxious about having this type of work redone, however, when Peter Moody arrived at my house to make an assessment, he put me at ease.

He assessed my house for the need for damp proofing and created a report, which I could take my time to read through. He offered to answer any questions that I may have, which would reassure me further. The price was fair and in line with other companies that I had researched, but it was Peter’s reputation that made me decide to go with him.

Arranging a start date, time schedule for work to be completed was simple and the work began on time. The workmen were polite when they arrived and again were very reassuring. I felt I could trust them in my home, which is very important.

At the end of the first day (after they had removed the plaster from the walls and drilled and injected the damp proofing solution), I arrived home to find they had swept up after themselves, cleared & removed the rubbish and ultimately made the living room and kitchen (where the work was been carried out) as liveable as possible. They were finished by the end of the second day and again I returned to a home that was in a liveable condition. On completion of the work, and payment in full I received my guarantee documents.

I would definitely recommend Peter Moody Building Contracts, as a damp proofing specialist after receiving a fantastic service. Thank You.

P. Tinkler, Chester-Le-Street

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Peter and his team for another excellent job. I am a landlady with 8 houses and have used Peter Moody on several of my houses over the last few years and have always been completely satisfied with every aspect of the work. On the recently completed damp proofing I’d like to give a special thanks to Neville who was willing to work on Saturday to complete the work as soon as possible and with the minimum of disruption and mess.

Peter is the only builder/contractor I have ever known to turn down work: recently I thought one of my properties had a damp problem but he assured me it was a condensation problem that would be rectified with inexpensive vents rather than costly damp proofing measures.

In any dealings with them, P. Moody Building Contracts have always been prompt, efficient, reliable and competitively priced.

Jackie Sample, Teeside

I have recently had treatment for rising damp carried out on my property by Peter Moody and his team. Peter carried out a quote for me promptly and the price was very reasonable. His team arrived as arranged and carried out the agreed work efficiently. His team were polite and did a really good job. I was given a guarantee for the work carried out and a certificate. I am very pleased with the service provided and would not hesitate in recommending them.

Wendy Osborne, Manchester

Having to deal with and search for a reliable damp proof specialised in North East for repairs to my properties, Peter Moody has achieved the ultimate result. One would need to fully understand the complexities of the works involved and what an exceptional job Peter and his team did for me. I cannot fault the service I have received, a true professional who clearly cares about his customers and promises nothing less than he delivers. I would like to express my thanks and would truly recommend.

Gary Houston, Belfast

Being from London and expanding my property portfolio to the North-East, I needed someone I could trust to carry out my remedial works. Peter Moody Building Contracts were recommended to me by a number of Estate Agents in the area and I am thrilled to say he has been excellent. Not only did he carry out the remedial works but also project managed everything that was required to get the works complete and my properties in a rentable state. Furthermore, from time to time he drives past my properties to check all is well. I am fully confident in being able to HIGHLY recommend Peter Moody Building Contracts. Knowing he is there to take care of matters when needs be gives me peace of mind.

Christina King, London

Peter Moody has installed many damp courses in our North East properties and recently did a full damp course and replastering in one of our North West properties. I consider Peter to be highly professional in his line of work and would not hesitate to recommend him to landlords who know the value of getting the job done right the first time.

Gerry Pridham, Manchester

We live in a bungalow which had a damp problem originating from the kitchen. This was leading through the dining room and would soon be at the living room. We were worried about who to turn to and how much it was going to cost. However, I need not have worried I found Peter Moody’s number online and decided to give them a call. He came out to assess the situation and give us a price: we were pleased with the price and decided to go ahead. His team arrived prompt on the arranged day. We were a bit apprehensive about joining the plaster to the old plaster; but, we need not have. The team carried out the work to an outstanding standard. I would recommend this company as, if you are like us and need confidence with whom you use then these people won’t let

Mrs C. Fumoleau

Just wanted to say thank you for the works carried out. Damp course completed, house dried out and now painted, thanks for the being tidy throughout the job. A job well done. I have passed your number on and I would call on you again if I were to buy a property with similar issues. Again thanks for the prompt and tidy work, great result.

Mr and Mrs MacHugh, Morpeth


The workmen arrived on time, completed the work to an excellent standard and were happy to assist with any queries along the way. This is the second time I have used Peter Moody for building works and I fail to be disappointed in any regard. A big “Thank You.” It’s a relief to have found a company you can trust to do the job!

Sarah, Consett

I recently had damp proofing work carried out by Peter Moody Building Contracts. I found that it was planned and executed to a very high standard and Peter visited the site and kept in touch by telephone throughout the whole job. Peter and his team were both helpful and friendly and completed the work to a high standard and left no mess after what is after all a dirty job.

I cannot fault the work and have no hesitation in recommending P. Moody Building Contracts as a value for money, prompt, efficient and reliable firm.

Mr Myers MBE, Willington, Crook


I found Moody Building Contracts to be very helpful and responsive in arranging to assess and then commence the work around my diary. The work was done to a high standard and I was impressed with the finishing touches and attention to detail.
