When to call our Bristol damp specialists

Every damp problem is different and this can be a problem for Bristol homeowners when it comes to identifying the source of damp in their property. From penetrating damp problems caused by cracked brickwork or masonary to mould and damp walls caused by condensation, a damp survey by our Bristol branch will get to the root of the problem.

If you see any of the signs below we would recommend calling one of our qualified and accredited surveyors to determine the source of your damp in your property and recommend the best course of damp proofing treatment:

  • Damp patches on walls or ceilings
  • Damaged plaster or wallpaper with visible damp stains or salt deposits
  • Mould growth on walls and around windows
  • Damp patches or flooding in your basement or cellar
  • Decaying or rotting skirting boards or beams
  • Fungal growth on timber beams

Condensation and mould treatment in Bristol

Condensation is the most common form of damp in Bristol and Peter Cox offer a range of condensation solutions to combat water collecting on cold surfaces that eventually leads to problems like black mould growth and damp walls.

Black mould growth is a growing concern in the UK. There has been a lot of focus on the problem in recent government legislation around the quality of social housing. However, this problem can affect any property with inadequete ventilation.

Peter Cox surveyors will establish the source of your ventilation issues, and put together a detailed report specifically tailored to your property with various treament and monitoring options available including ventilation systems, air quality monitoring and thermal plaster.

Basement waterproofing and tanking in Bristol

Basement and Cellar conversions are useful additions to properties and they are as popular in Bristol as anywhere else. Converting your basement or cellar into a useable space can increase property value while making your home a better place to live.

However, the key to a successful conversion is basement waterproofing.

We offer basement and cellar waterproofing and tanking solutions for domestic and commercial properties, providing our customers with a safe and dry underground space ready for any use.

Peter Cox can also offer structual waterproofing solutions for new builds and other construction projects.

  • Determine if the woodworm infestation is active and requires treatment
