Our Processes

For damp problems, we offer surveys to identify the source of moisture.

Solutions for moisture issues like ‘rising damp’, we can install a damp course to rectify this.

Many penetrative issues are due to poor drainage which can be a consequence of bad guttering, roofing or problems like wisteria or ivy growing up the side of a property, in which we recommend our builders, ’Felsted Construction Ltd’, to resolve with remedial action.

Wood decaying fungi is treated after locating and rectifying the water ingress with a fungicide and hardener.
