Damp Proofing in Bradford

Bradford grew as a city during the industrial revolution and became a major centre for textile manufacturing. To meet the needs of the industry a lot of housing was built to accommodate the workers, some of which is still standing today. Nearly 40% of the housing stock in Bradford was built pre 1919 which is significantly above the England average of 24.5%. Older properties can be more susceptible to damp and condensation problems because they were built without a damp course. If you are noticing signs of damp in your property and would like a professional opinion then contact us now on 0800 0193 022 and speak to one of our team of specialists.

Since the decline of the textile industry Bradford has reinvented itself as a tourist destination, becoming the first UNESCO city of film with attractions such as the Alhambra Theatre, Cartwright Hall, the National Media Museum and Bradford City Park. Other notable places of interest in the city include Bradford Cathedral, St George’s Hall, the Wool Exchange, Little Germany and Bolling Hall.

Geographically, Bradford can be susceptible to river and surface water flooding due to its proximity to the River Aire and River Wharfe. Climate change, above average rainfalls, and the urban nature of Bradford all impact on parts of the city being a flood risk area. There have been flooding incidents in 2000, 2008 and 2012 . The worse being in 2000 when the River Aire burst its banks and many householders were forced to spend 6 months away from their homes while clearing up took place.

At Damp Proofing Specialists we have many years experience of dealing with the issues that flooding can bring. We can help you minimise the damage inflicted to your property by implementing damp course protection.
