Damp proofing & timber preservation specialists in Westminster
Structural issues aren’t just an eyesore. Damp, mould, and rot can cause serious damage to the internal structure of your property, and can require expensive repair work if not looked at quickly. Some issues, such as black mould, can even put the health of you and your family at risk.
If you suspect your home may be suffering from a structural issue, it’s important to get it diagnosed as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the harder (and likely more expensive) it will be to fix.

We help homeowners, estate agents, and estate management companies by taking care of any property problems they are facing, from rot and woodworm to mould and water damage.
