What We Do…
- Damp proofing is our main area of expertise, and with damp and excess moisture being one of the top problems faced by homes and businesses, it is a good thing our team are on hand to provide remedial work. From surveying your property and identifying any issues present to investigative work to determine what the root cause and implications are – we provide a comprehensive start to finish service for all things damp related
- Timber treatment is another service in high demand. Wood is a perishable material, and with our soggy climate and warm, cosy homes, we inadvertently provide the “ideal” conditions for wet rot, dry rot and woodworm to occur. These can all become serious problems, quite quickly. As such, we’ve honed our skills to ensure we can offer a helping hand to get these cases treated and resolved efficiently
- Basement tanking has become an increasingly popular request, with many people in London especially choosing to convert their basements into rooms as a way to expand their home or business without having to move to a new property. Of course, conversion comes with its own challenges, and basement conversions are no exception. We can ensure your new room is properly prepped with structural waterproofing, so it is dry, safe and comfortable
- Refurbishment is often overlooked in the pursuit of remedial services. However, we take pride in delivering an end to end service and will work with you to carry out any refurbishment work you might need after your original issue has been addressed. Whether that means completing a wet room project or replacing a damaged ceiling, our specialists are on hand to help
Where We Work…
- London – The centre of our operation, being London-based allows us to cover a number of areas. We have particularly extensive knowledge of the architecture and the types of challenges that can be found in West and Southwest London, with regular projects in Isleworth, Kensington, Ealing and Twickenham
- Buckinghamshire – In addition to London boroughs, we also offer services to surrounding counties. Buckinghamshire towns and villages like Aylesbury, Amersham and High Wycombe have an interesting mix of renovation and conservation projects for older buildings, as well as the usual problems to address in residential and commercial properties, so plenty to keep us on our toes!
- Hertfordshire – Another core area for our team, Hertfordshire is a stone’s throw from London and has plenty of buildings – old and new – in need of our specialist services. From newer towns like Stevenage to historic locales like Watford and Bishop’s Stortford, our expertise benefits Hertfordshire’s homes and businesses time after time
