London & Home Counties
We are specialists in protecting property from damp and woodworm, serving London and the Home Counties, including Essex.
Established in 1976, we have more than thirty years experience in diagnosing the causes of damp, and designing and installing property protection systems.
We are a family run firm, that takes pride in our work. This means we don't subcontract out jobs, so all work is carried out by our own team of fully trained specialists, qualified to the national standard.
We offer damp proofing and woodworm elimination services in North London, West London and East London, but we can also travel a little further afield if needed.
If you think you have a problem with rising damp or woodworm, or you have an underground area suffering from damp, give us a call, or use the contact form to get in touch. Don't wait to see if the problem gets better, as further damage caused over time will be more expensive to repair.
One of our team will come out to your home to inspect the problem, and assess any remedial work that needs to be carried out. A full report will be dispatched to you within two working days, outlining our suggested improvements, and a quote for the cost.

Basement waterproofing stops water in the soil surrounding
an underground structure forcing itself through cracks and tiny gaps in the
brickwork, leading to moisture buildup inside the property. Inadequate basement
waterproofing can result in structural damage, decay of construction materials,
and encourage the growth of mold. We are qualified to install basement
waterproofing using either a cementitious or cavity membrane system.
Basement tanking will keep your underground living area dry,
and can be carried out as part of the construction process, or in an
established building. Our surveyors have a nationally recognised qualification
in basement tanking, enabling them to assess the cause of water entering
underground structures, and design appropriate solutions. All our basement
tanking work carries a 10 year guarantee.
Our fully CSSW qualified technicians, can assess your
underground space, identify the cause of any entry of water, and design an
