Peter Cox have been preserving, maintaining and repairing British homes for over 63 years. We know how stressful it can be to find damp in properties so we make sure to recognise our duty of care to both commercial buildings and homeowners.
Typically, Falmouth can have some of the driest and warmest weather in the UK, making it a popular destination for holiday makers. However extreme weather isn’t uncommon with high winds and heavy rain, Falmouth can suffer with flooding, which could lead to problems with damp.
Further north to Falmouth, our team of experts were asked to examine an infestation of dry rot on a property in Liskeard. It is believed the problem had been caused by defective guttering combined with high external ground levels and inadequate subfloor ventilation which had allowed excess moisture to penetrate the building fabric.

Falmouth is a town based on the south coast of Cornwall where the River Fal reaches the English Channel.
The town’s waters are where Robin Knox-Johnson achieved in sailing around the world single handed in 1969 along with Ellen Macarthur who also completed the same quest but in record time.
As mentioned, Falmouth is a popular destination for holiday makers, with plenty of attractions around the town, one of those being the Pendennis Castle which was built by Henry VIII in 1540.
As well as being a popular location for tourists, Falmouth’s harbour is home to one of the worlds most advanced R&D and testing facility. The FaBTest facility collects data for wave energy and marine renewables.
