About Us

DPS Tyneside is a family business which was born in 2019 in the middle of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Our main value as a business is to give the most honest advice so our customers are not charged for any unnecessary works.

We currently have two surveyors – Craig, who is the Director of the company, and Lee, who is a close friend to the family. Both Craig and Lee are Certified Surveyors of Timber & Dampness in Buildings. Craig has worked in this industry for 20 years, working all over the country. Lee recently joined the team in 2023. As a team, we have almost 200 years of shared experience, our team can protect your home or rental property. As a result, you can rest assured that all advice is realistic and honest and we always ensure to deliver a personal and professional opinion when carrying out surveys.

We survey a range of properties, from stately homes to one-bedroom flats, and you can expect the same standard of professionalism and courtesy no matter the size or type of property.

We are passionate about everything we do, come fully insured and strive for the best results each and every time. From external rendering with an elegant through colour to wet rot treatments, damp proofing, and woodworm treatments, we take the stress out of maintaining the home as much as possible. We even offer to work weekends to suit your busy schedule.

We enjoy a superb rating on Checkatrade, hold QANW membership for lengthy guarantees and are approved installers of Sovereign chemicals – the best damp proofing and building treatments on the market today.

Rest assured that all team members have undergone training with the Property Care Association (PCA). This means a professional approach for your home, be it a semi-detached house in the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne or a rented property in Gateshead or the surrounding areas.

Furthermore, our team includes a CSTDB surveyor who has passed the certificated surveyor of timber and dampness in buildings (CSTDB) exams.

"I initially contacted Craig as I thought there was damp on the wall. It turned out not to be the case but Craig advised us to fit a vent to help with the humidity. The quote came back quickly and Craig was great at getting back to me with answers to all of my questions. The work was done quickly and to a high standard. Everyone involved was very polite and friendly and left everything clean and tidy. Would use DPS again."


"Craig was excellent, couldn’t recommend him more, work was done as quoted and he came at short notice due to our timeline and having flooring put in next week. Won’t hesitate to use him again in the future."


"DPS carried out the work straight away and contacted me throughout. We are so pleased with the rendering that was done- the seat looks great! They helped me by supplying colour charts before the work and everything was well looked after. Would definitely recommend!"


"Great work done, we were kept well informed with any delays, work was done quickly and professionally."


"Excellent communication from quotation through to completion. Answered all questions regarding the quote clearly and rapidly. Very happy with the workmanship. Cleaned up after themselves. Friendly and professional throughout. Would certainly recommend and use again."


"I just wanted to leave a review for the excellent work which was completed in my home by your company. The whole process was something I was dreading (as I had been told it would be messy) but with the professional attitude of the plasterer and competitive quote I have say I was impressed and had no cause for concern..."

- Mrs Gray

Our team can replace rotten timbers, repoint damaged brick walls and provide a decorative touch that only enhances the building’s character. When you combine our approach with a 10-year-long, mortgage-backed guarantee and insurance policy, you can trust that your property is in the best possible hands.

Lime plastering is ideal for historic buildings, but we can also provide this service for newer properties. We apply the plaster by hand to internal walls and ceilings before painting.
