Damp Proofing in Blackburn

Blackburn is a large town in Lancashire that played an important part in the industrial revolution, was once a major textile manufacturing centre and was also one of the first industrialised towns in the world. To meet the growth of Blackburn a lot of housing was built to accommodate the workers in the textile mills, some of which is still standing today. Over 35% of the housing in Blackburn was built pre 1919 which is well above the England average of 24.5%. Due to the lack of damp course in older properties they can be more susceptible to damp problems which can cause timber decay and health problems for the people living there. We are specialists in all aspects of damp proofing and waterproofing work so call us now on 0800 0193 022 and we can help you with any damp issues that you may be facing.

Places of note in the town include Blackburn Cathedral, the Town Hall, Queen Victoria’s statue and the Wainwright Bridge. Geographically, the town centre is located in a depression surrounded by a number of hills. Due to its urban nature and the River Blakewater, which runs under the town centre, Blackburn can be susceptible to floods during heavy rainfalls. Recent floods have taken place in February 2011 and June 2012 in the town centre.

We have had experience of dealing with the aftermath of flooding and implementing damp course protection to residential and commercial properties to minimise the affects of flooding on the timber of the buildings. If you think you are in a risk area or need advice about damp proofing and waterproofing in your home or business then call us now on 0800 0193 022 and speak to one of our specialist team.

Blackburn’s population of around 140,000 live in approximately 58,000 households. Around 30% of housing falls below the ‘Decent Homes Standard’ and it is estimated that, at any given time, 10 to 15% of properties will be suffering from some type of damp or condensation problem.
