For many years D.O.H Construction has been a preferred supplier to some of the UK's leading insurers, who call on our expertise to undertake both domestic and commercial insurance repairs within the North East, North West and Yorkshire.

Our experienced team of construction professionals and craftsmen specialise in reinstating properties that have suffered damage caused by fire, flood, impact or burst pipes, in addition to subsidence.

We employ all trades directly, including: joiners, plasterers, bricklayers, plumbers, heating engineers and painting and decorators. This means we do not sub-contract work out, ensuring quality of work and continuity on each project.

Through our sister company, D.O.H Properties, and subject to availability, we can even offer rented accommodation while your property is undergoing repair work.

Flood Damage

Having undertaken hundreds of repairs in recent years D.O.H Construction has extensive knowledge and expertise in reinstating flood damaged properties. We understand how stressful domestic flood damage can be, and our experienced management team and tradesmen strive to ensure properties are repaired quickly to our exacting standards.

Fire Damage

D.O.H Construction undertakes the reinstatement of fire-damaged properties on behalf of major insurance companies, loss adjusters and chartered surveyors. We offer a full and comprehensive service from start to finish, and aim to make what is a traumatic experience as straightforward and painless as possible.

Impact Damage

We have experience in dealing with all types of structural impact damage and undertake work for a number of insurers, loss adjusters and chartered surveyors. Whatever the damage we offer a hassle-free, comprehensive service from start to finish and reinstate property back to its former glory following an impact, whether it be from a vehicle or fallen tree.

Escaped Water Damage

Escaped water damage predominantly means damaged caused by leaking or burst pipes. D.O.H Construction has undertaken work of this nature for many years, and currently handles between 40 and 50 of these claims each month on behalf of the UK's largest insurance company. Rectifying escaped water damage is often more sensitive than other damage repairs, as it is often carried out while the client is still living in the property. Therefore we understand the measures required to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.


Subsidence can be caused by many different factors, including: leaking drains, tree roots and ground shrinkage. When it is detected a structural engineer is normally appointed by the property owner's insurance company to access and monitor the subsidence. After diagnosis, the engineer will prepare a schedule of repair work so that we can rectify the problem. Again, we have extensive knowledge and experience in this area.
