Property Preservation Services in Leicester

Leicestershire rarely experiences very extreme weather. The county has a temperate maritime climate with warm rather than hot summers and cool winters. July is the hottest month and January is the coldest month in winter. The wettest month is December and April is driest, but rainfall is fairly even throughout the year.

With this typically British oceanic climate – that is to say with warm summers, cooler winters and the possibility of rain all year round – there is an ongoing need to guard against damp and the associated problems it can cause on properties.

The River Soar is the main river to run through Leicester. Midway between Hinckley and Lutterworth the river is then joined by the River Sence near Enderby and then flows north through Leicester where it joins the Grand Union Canal. Over the years there have been a number of floods due to the rivers bursting their banks affecting both agricultural and residential areas.

Leicester is located in the East Midlands region. Leicestershire towns include Leicester, Ashby de la Zouch, Coalville, Hinckley, Loughborough and Market Harborough.

Many of the rural villages in Leicestershire feature historic houses and buildings which will be in need of preservation. The area also has a rich industrial heritage and much of our railway infrastructure continues to rely on Victorian architecture that requires continual preservation and improvement.

The years following the end of the 2nd World War saw mass house building across much of central England. The sixties in particular brought many shifts in the social and economic outlook across the region.

The area has experienced large-scale immigration from around the world. One of this country’s oldest cities, dating back some two millennia, it can also claim to be the most multi-cultural.
