Damp Proofing in York

York originally grew as a city through its wool, railway and manufacturing industries. To accommodate the workers in these industries a programme of house building was instigated, some of which is still standing today. 19% of the residential properties in York are pre 1919 and 36% were constructed pre 1945. Older properties can be more prone to damp problems and this is where we can help. We are specialists in damp proofing and waterproofing work so if you need a damp survey conducting on your property then call us now on 0800 0193 022 and we will advise on the best course of action.

York possesses many historical places of interest including York Minster Cathedral, the Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle, the Mansion House, the Richard III Museum and the National Railway Museum, where the famous steam locomotive The Flying Scotsman is housed. Geographically, a lot of the land in and around the city is on flood plains and is too flood-prone for housing. The city is susceptible to flooding from the River Ouse and in 2000 the city experienced its worse flooding in 375 years with over 300 homes being flooded. At Damp Proofing Specialists we have experienced the aftermath of flooding damage and we implement damp course protection to minimise the affects that flooding can have on the timber of your property. If you would like advice on damp proofing and waterproofing in your home then contact us now on 0800 0193 022 and consult one of our highly qualified team.
