Property Preservation Services in Cwmbran
Our work in North and South Wales for over the last 25 years has focused on resolving damp problems, and also infestations of woodworm and dry rot.
Peter Cox are approved contractors for the installation of Cintec anchors to stabilise unstable masonry and to provide heavy duty structural anchors.
With many historic and older properties in South Wales, wall stabilisation has been an issue, as for instance in the case study of building repairs to a hotel near Harlech Castle, 3 hours away from Cwmbran. Although this started with wall stabilisation, the project moved on to correct a wet rot problem caused by damp ingress, and to eradicate a subsequent woodworm infestation.
We have dealt with several projects over the years around Wales including:
North & Mid Wales
Aberdun Engine Shed, Mold; Royal Hotel, Llangollen; Nanteos Mansion, Aberystwyth; Bala Lake Hotel; Ffestiniog Railway, Porthmadog; Deudraeth Castle, Portmeirion.
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 south eastern region of the South Wales Coalfield, Cwmbran was just one of a number of new towns created after the 2nd World War.
The name Cwmbran actually means “Crow Valley”.
Here the hills to the north and west dip towards the Usk Valley in the east. 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.
