Damp Proofing in Liverpool
Over the years since Mr Peter Cox first patented his Transfusion DPC system, the company has helped to repair many thousands of privately owned houses throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
We also have extensive experience of the greater scale and complexity, which commercial developments require such as industrial buildings, office redevelopments or new build housing schemes.
Peter Cox can undertake Specialist ‘Exposure’ Surveys to assess the damage from a variety of property issues. Whether it is walls, flooring or panelling, our team will carefully remove whatever is necessary in order to provide you with a thorough report on what is needed to restore the property to its former glory.
Property Preservation Services in Liverpool
The area that we provide damp proofing and building repair services to covers a very wide area which includes Liverpool, Merseyside, North and Mid-Wales, Wrexham, Wigan, Chester, Northern Ireland, Eire and the Isle of Man.
Recently we diagnosed rising damp in John Lennon’s childhood home and installed a remedial damp proof course using our DryWall Silane Diffusion system, the very latest in damp proofing technology.
Our portfolio in the city also includes work on the basement waterproofing system for Mildmay House in Liverpool. This was followed by a comprehensive programme of timber treatments including timber gel treatments to large timber sections, resin repairs to beam ends, insecticidal spray treatments and masonry sterilisation. Another project included structural timber repairs in a Liverpool dockside warehouse being converted into recording studios – a sign of the times!
Further afield the branch has handled a damp proofing contract in Gibraltar for the MoD.
Good service, used you for years. No problems, great. – Adam Flynn
Liverpool’s moderated oceanic climate compares well with similar latitudes in Europe, and lacks a regular snowy winter, in spite of its geographically northerly location. Rainfall varies from 37 to over 70mm, with 12 to 18 rainy days each month. The climate may be subject to wind and rain from the prevailing South-Westerlies, so that issues with damp ingress, penetrating damp, rising damp, fungal and insect infestations may need to be guarded against. Dry rot and wet rot can result if moisture ingress is not controlled and damage to timber and masonry can result.
In the mid to late 19th century Liverpool was the second city in the UK and its docks powered UK and global trade. Consequently Liverpool has a very cosmopolitan population with people coming from all over the globe.
The city grew rapidly in the 19th century with poor-quality housing. There was mass council housing building across Liverpool in the early 20th century, and people were rehoused from the inner-city to new suburban housing estates. Also at this time a large number of private homes were built. After the war more new housing estates were built in the suburbs and older inner city areas were also redeveloped.
