Meet Gareth our newest recruit.
Gareth has just joined the Dryfix team following a career in floor fitting. Gareth’s been in the specialist flooring industry for the past 14 years, not your boring old carpet and underlay stuff but super quality and skilled adhered vinyl and tile. After 14 years however he’s in need of a new challenge, he wants to learn new skills and join a company willing to provide the support and training needed. He may not come from a background in damp proofing but he does have skills and a brain with a willing to learn. That’s all we need from a new starter, everything else we’ll provide.

Gareth lives in York and has two children Aiden (9) and Oliver 11 months. He’s a big rugby fan and supports Leeds Rhinos and used to play for the Acorn and York Locomotive.

It’s great to have you in the team Gareth, you’ve joined the elite at Dryfix, Yorkshires leading damp and timber specialists.

Our latest delivery of specialist drying equipment has arrived from Corroventa. T4ES Turbines, floor & wall drying kits. We've been trialing the Corroventa units against our other Dri eaz and Ariel systems for the past few months and these units are simply the best we've used. The Corroventa units are well designed, easy to store and transport, built to last and have so much flexibility in the control panel. This provides our technicians the ability to control our drying environments better making drying quick, easier and more cost efficient.

The Professionals choice! #Corroventa #drying #effective #speedy #restoration #waterdamage #flooding

Today I've been back to PCA (Property Care Association) headquarters attending a course on condensation presented by the grandfather of knowledge Mr Grahem Coleman. The course was titled 'A diagnostic approach to understanding condensation, atmospheric moisture and mould' and beleive it or not, this is the third time ive sat this course. So why sit the course again?....

Well even as a professional that practices daily the teachings within this course, there is often so much information delivered in that its almost impossible to absorb and retain 100% of the information. Over the years technologies advance and legislation and codes of practice both for inspection and repair change and get updated. Sitting the course for a third time simply makes sure that with the condensation season looming that i'm upto date with any recent changes, fills in the gaps where information has faded over the years and reinforces my knowledge as a true professional and specialist in the world of atmospheric moisture, condensation, damp and mould.

Attending both new and old courses also provides the perfect opportunity to meet up with new people within the industry and share knowledge and experiences.

Many thanks to Grahem, as always another well presented course.

No matter how small your leak, we're almost guarantee to find it!

Our surveyors are nationally qualified through examination in the fields of Fire & Smoke Restoration, Odour Control, Water Damage Restoration, Structural Drying and Mould Remediation all achieved through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification.

Thank you to Dean Wilkinson from MAD about Electrics for the recent electrical updates to our laboratory.

The lab is one of our more recent investments to the company providing us with the scientific capabilities to ensure our clients get the most accurate results when we're testing their buildings for damp, salt contamination, flooding or water damage.

It's just another improvement to an already excellent service.

If you suspect a problem with damp/moisture or have been in the unfortunate situation of a flood or escape of water event, don't hesitate call the experts on York 791388 or email us info@dryfix.net

Likewise, if your on the look out for a good electrician, Dean's your man. MAD about Electrics - 01904 787983

Our recent adoptee Andrew has been away this week down to the PCA Headquarters in Huntingdon sitting his technicians course.

Feedback from the PCA is, he's done us proud and is a credit to the company! Feedback from Andrew is, the course was informative and interesting and he's now looking forward to sitting his surveyors training course. That's the spirit.

At Dryfix we don't train our staff to be good, we train our staff to be the best!

Remember our post a few weeks back?.... A large garden wall which was hit by a car causing part of the wall to become unstable. To make matters worse, the wall was extremely long and in the middle was over 4 inches out of plumb due to neighboring trees.

The insurer's would only pay for repair of the impact damage which wouldn't cover a full rebuild. In this scenario, with the clients being unable to commit to the costs of a full re-build we re-designed the wall. Rebuilding and stabilizing where necessary, reducing the height of the existing wall and taking away the unstable sections and introducing pillars back up to wall height with intermediate timber panels.

The results fantastic and we have another happy client. The walls now stable, still provides privacy from the road and looks nowhere near as imposing as a 6ft leaning structure.

James and Matt have worked on this project, well done to the both of you, great results.
