We have accreditations from all relevant, respected industry bodies and are a Which? Trusted Trader. We also have excellent feedback from our customers: read the hundreds of handwritten feedback forms received from our clients and a 9.63 average star rating on CheckATrade.com, with assessments for reliability and timekeeping, tidiness, courtesy and workmanship.

It’s this excellent service from start to finish that makes our customers happy to recommend us – meaning you can relax, knowing you’ve made the right choice.


We guarantee all our work, so you can have complete peace of mind. Even if we were to go out of business (and we have no intention of that!), our work would still be guaranteed.

We offer 10-year guarantees on:

  • chemical damp proofing,
  • tanking or waterproofing works completed below ground and
  • all timber treatments.

We’ll even assign our guarantee to a new owner of the property free of charge if you ask us to. And if you think there’s a problem with the work we’ve undertaken, we will come back and re-inspect it.

Established Expertise

We provide expert services and deliver them expertly, using only appropriately trained and qualified surveyors and technicians.

Our lead surveyor is both CSRT, CSTDB and CSSW qualified – meaning you receive the very best advice in the industry – and he personally oversees every job.

We’ve been operating for more than 15 years, so can demonstrate a strong track record of delivering quality solutions using quality materials, processes and knowledge, backed by comprehensive industry accreditations.

Delivering Peace of Mind

Our guarantees and our reputation give you the peace of mind you deserve. We are happy that our track record speaks for itself so we are completely transparent: we put up our feedback surveys on our website and don’t doctor any of them, so you can have an honest assessment of our services.

But our qualifications, experience, customer recommendations and accreditations mean you can have confidence that we will deliver a quality service from survey to certification – meaning you can enjoy your home.


We know that inviting someone into your home is a big decision, so we are completely transparent – so you have all the information you need to make the right decision for you and your property.

We publish all the feedback forms that we receive from our customers on our website, so you can see how we get it right – and how we put things right on the rare occasions when things don’t run smoothly.

And we have lots of information about our team so you know who is going to be coming through your front door.

Saving you time and money

We get it right first time to save you time and money, whether you are a domestic or commercial customer. We provide long-term, guaranteed solutions to enable you to maintain the value of your property and ensure its integrity.

We allocate a dedicated team to your work so the job is started and finished as quickly as possible, with minimum disruption to you. We even finish our work ready for decoration, so you won’t need to call in other trades after us.


South East Timber & Damp offers all your expert timber and damp preservation services under one roof.

Whether you’re a domestic customer looking to protect your home, or an architect, property developer or large construction contractor, we have all the expertise you need to find best-practice solutions for problems with timber, damp, basement flooding, or waterproofing solutions for all period properties.


We’re a family-run firm based in the heart of the Kent community that we serve. That connection is important to us: it means we know the area and we know our customers.

It also makes it even more important for us to get every job right first time, as we know that word will soon get around if we don’t.

Our family ethos runs through everything we do: our owner-director, Dean Webster, personally oversees every job, with his wife, Annabelle, overseeing bookings and customer queries.


We care – it’s as simple as that. We care about offering a first-class, personal service by trusted experts. We care about creating a premium experience for our domestic and commercial customers.

We care about maintaining a reputation as the most trusted timber and damp preservation experts in Kent.

And, because we care, we look after your property as though it were our own – because we understand how important your home or your investment is to you.
