About Refresh

Why do we charge for surveys?

We offer a customer-focused and honest opinion of our findings. As such, the majority of our surveys result in either nothing being required or a bit of friendly advice on minor works that can be carried out by you the client or a local handyman. By charging a nominal amount, we ensure that we at least cover our operating costs for visits of this nature. If however, works can be carried out by us and you instruct us accordingly, this fee is credited back to you as part of our quotation.

What do we offer with a survey?

We will inspect accessible areas both visually and with a series of testing equipment required in order to best guage causation and cure. Within a week of the survey, we will typically email a full report with our findings, recommendations, specifications and associated costs.

Many of our services carry underwritten guarantees that provide you with piece of mind of both our workmanship and the quality of the products we use.
