Impressive. From first phone call inquiring for woodworm treatment (they came out same day to quote) to completing work was all within one week. Polite, friendly, helpful company. Fast, efficient service. Why look any further.

I would definately use Groombridge again if required, and certainly encourage my friends to use them if asked.

I am extremely pleased with the way Tim dealt with my condensation problem. He was extremely helpful and certainly knew what he was doing. I would have no hesitation in using this firm again, and can thoroughly recommend them to anyone with a damp problem.
