Default Builders in Gandia/Oliva area

Can anyone recommend an English-speaking builder that can come and assess a damp problem in a house I recently viewed? The estate agent showing me the property said he knows someone who could come and take a look at it but I am very wary of doing that.

Thanks.

If this group cannot help you then perhaps a local facebook group such as https://www.facebook.com/groups/1024441644273711/

May be of use.

Why not ask a Spanish builder and use an interpreter?

I believe that Lee Roy MerlinĀ“s in Gandia has a board where tradesmen can put their business cards. Many of the staff there speak English so maybe they could recommend someone.

Thanks Rosemary. I haven't been to Leroy Merlin yet but hopefully soon I'll be off to buy some garden furniture!

You could try asking in Cafe Oliva in Oliva, just round the corner from the town hall.
It's British owned and predominately frequented by Brits some of whom are or will recommend builders.
