Damp proofing & timber preservation experts Kent
If you suspect your home has a timber or damp problem, it’s important to get it looked at by a professional as quickly as possible – the longer issues are left unchecked, the harder (and usually more costly) they will be to fix.
Prokil’s office based in Tunbridge Wells are Kent’s go-to damp and timber specialists. We have over 50 years of knowledge and experience in eradicating structural damp problems, from rot and woodworm to mould and water damage. No matter the scale or severity of the problem, we’re here to make sure your home is a clean and safe place to live.
Damp surveys & treatment in Kent
Aside from being unsightly, damp can lead to structural damage and the growth of mould and mildew. We can carry out a thorough damp survey of your property and recommend a long-lasting and cost-effective solution. We work on the behalf of private homeowners, landlords, Estate Agents and Property Management Agents, so whatever your situation, we can help. We also have experience carrying out work in Grade II listed buildings.
We offer a comprehensive range of damp treatment services. We are experienced in diagnosing and dealing with rising, penetrating, and condensation damp, and can use our state-of-the-art equipment to safely remove and replace affected areas of your home.
To stop damp from forming in the first place, we can install a high-performance damp proof course that will effectively block moisture from seeping into your walls, ensuring your home stays free from damp both now and in the future. We also use high-quality damp proofing renders and plastering to ensure renovation works are sufficiently protected.
Before investing in a new property, it’s always a good idea to get it surveyed by a professional first. A homebuyers survey can make you aware of potential damp and structural problems ahead of time, giving you the chance to arrange for treatment or a discount, and avoid any nasty surprises after you move in.
Our RICS & PCA-accredited surveyors will carry out a thorough investigation of your property, using specialist tools to detect signs of damp or mould. We will provide you with a detailed report on the condition of your property plus a quote for any remedial work required, so you can make the best informed decision.
