Fife contains 4,961 listed buildings and 48 conservation areas, meaning there is constant demand for property preservation services for the likes of damp, woodworm, and rotting timbers. Our Peter Cox experts have been serving this area for a quarter of a century.
Due to Fife’s climate, wetter areas may be subject to penetrating damp and rising damp, whilst colder areas may be more likely to have condensation problems. Woodworm, timber decay, structural and visual damage, dry and wet rot can arise if damp ingress is not tackled.
Fife is located in the south east of Scotland, just north of Edinburgh across the Firth of Forth. Fife’s biggest cities and towns include Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Saint Andrews.
The Scottish region of Fife is well known for its mention in Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth” wherein Macduff was the thane of Fife. Fife became a centre of heavy industry in the 19th century. Coal had been mined in the area since at least the 12th century, but the number of pits increased ten-fold as demand for coal grew in the Victorian period.
Much of Eastern Scotland is sheltered from the rain-bearing westerly winds. This shelter reaches its greatest potential along the coasts, receiving less than 700 mm of rainfall in an average year.
