Damp Proofing in Preston

Preston grew as a city through the industrial revolution and became an important textiles, engineering and manufacturing centre. To meet the growth of these industries many houses were built to accommodate the workers, some of which are still standing today. Over 30% of the housing in Preston was built pre 1919 which is above the England average of 24.5%. Preston’s housing stock reflects its industrial history with a high number of Victorian properties located in the city. Victorian properties were built with no damp course so can be susceptible to rising damp and penetrative damp issues. We are specialists in the damp proofing industry so if you need advice on a damp problem in your home then call us now on 0800 0193 022 and speak to one of our highly qualified team.

Well known landmarks in the city include St Walburge’s Church, the Harris Museum, Ribble Steam Railway, Tulketh Mill and Broughton Cottage Museum. The combination of Preston’s proximity to the River Ribble and the risk of surface water flooding due to the urban nature of Preston, has made the city a high risk for flooding as judged by the Environmental Agency. In common with other parts of Lancashire, Preston receives a higher than average rainfall and there have been recent flooding incidents in the city in 2010 and 2012. It is estimated that over 5,000 properties are potentially at risk in the city and the Environmental Agency are looking at plans to deal with this.

At Damp Proofing Specialists we have experience in dealing with the results of flooding on properties and implementing damp course treatment to guard against the worst affects of flooding damage on the timber of properties. If you need expert advice on damp proofing in your home then call us today on 0800 0193 022 and we will conduct a damp survey to identify any problems that may exist.
