You are probably looking at this website because you have discovered damp or timber problems in your property or in a property you’re interested in purchasing.
On that basis, I am sure that I can help you. Before I do I would like to tell you about me and my business.
My name is Jamie Johnson and I started trading as Stay Warm and Dry in 2019, having worked in the damp proofing industry since the age of 16.
That’s 12 years of experience and counting.
If you’re wondering how it got started, the gentleman shown below will tell you.
Over to you, Steve!
How the Business Started
I have served hundreds of customers throughout Derby and Nottingham and built an excellent reputation of which I’m proud.
I’ll be taking a back seat and a less active role in the business as I am easing into retirement.
Jamie worked with me for years as my main plasterer, learning the business day in day out. I trust him in taking over and I, of course, shall be involved to a degree – though customers are unlikely to meet me.
Stay Warm & Dry from 2019
Thanks Steve. I’m excited to continue working with property owners across Derby and Nottingham, although it should be said we’ll now be based from Heanor, not Ilkeston.
It’s still easy to access both cities and we’re wanting to really cover the same territory as before and keep things reasonably local.
