The city is well known for its parks and over 60% of Sheffield is dominated by green space.  Geographically, the city lies in a natural amphitheatre created by several hills and the confluence of five rivers.

Leeds developed as a major city through its wool, engineering, printing and iron industries. In more recent times Leeds has become one of the largest business, legal and financial centres outside of London. In common with other major industrial cities in the UK, much of the housing in Leeds emerged during the Victorian era and is still standing today. Dampness can be a problem with Victorian properties because they were originally built without a damp course. For specialist advice about damp proofing in your home then contact us now on 0800 0193 022 and speak to one of our experts.

Leeds is regarded as the commercial and cultural hub of West Yorkshire. Places of interest in the city include the Victorian Quarter, Leeds Corn Exchange, Leeds Art Gallery and the Royal Armouries. The history of Leeds and its architecture has been the catalyst for much debate about housing in the city. The growth of Leeds during the industrial revolution led to many houses being built, the most common of which was ‘back to backs’ which were built to house the working classes. At one point, 70% of all the housing in Leeds were ‘back to backs’ and although there has been redevelopment, they still form a large part of the housing stock in Leeds.

Older properties such as ‘back to backs’ are more prone to damp problems and this is where we can help. We have been serving the residents of Leeds for over 20 years with solutions for damp, mould, and condensation problems and have built a strong reputation for the quality of our service. Contact us now on 0800 0193 022 for advice about damp proofing in your home.

Despite the age of properties like ‘back to backs’ they are seen as historically important and there is emphasis in the city on renovation rather than demolition of these buildings. At Damp Proofing Specialists we are well placed to support the renovation and redevelopment of older properties through our expertise in damp proofing and waterproofing work.
