Property Preservation Services in Cwmbran

Our work in South Wales for over the last 25 years has solved many issues related to property preservation, from damp proofing, to rot and woodworm treatments. We also offer structural timber repairs, wall stabilisation methods and basement waterproofing techniques. Peter Cox are also approved contractors for the installation of Cintec anchors to stabilise unstable masonry and to provide heavy duty structural anchors, used in a number of structures, bridges and historic buildings across the UK.

We have vast amounts of experience working across Wales from our local branch, and some of our previous jobs include dry rot treatments for Hendrefoilan House at Swansea University, carrying out wall stitching and wall tie replacements at Clyne Court, Jeffries Court, a series of resin repairs at Oystermouth School and wall tie replacements at Caradog House.

Other projects around South Wales include:

  • St Thomas School and Patti Pavilion, Swansea
  • Criag-y-Nos Castle, Pen-y-Cae, Powys
  • Theatre Powys, Llandrindod Wells

Established in 1949 to provide new employment opportunities in the southeastern region of the South Wales Coalfield, Cwmbran was just one of a number of new towns created after the Second World War. The name Cwmbran actually means “Crow Valley” and the heavy industry of the past has been given over to urban regeneration.

The wild landscape offers breathtaking scenery but tends to be beset by heavy rains in the autumn months that can cause problems such as penetrating damp and the potential for flash flooding. Nearer the coast are Newport and Cardiff, where brisk westerly winds ferry weather fronts in from the Atlantic and gulls seek out roosts amid the bustling conurbations. This means that properties may be more susceptible to penetrating damp from excessive wind and rain.
