In common with most of southern England, the weather in Oxford is generally a bit dull and wet. October is the wettest month and March is the driest, although rain is relatively even over the year. January is coldest. As Oxford is inland, compared with coastal towns there is more likelihood of frost and there may be snow in late winter and early spring. Generally summers are mild to warm, punctuated on occasion by a heat wave. The wetter seasons may influence the need for damp proofing, dry and wet rot treatment and woodworm eradication.
In the repair and renovation of listed and other heritage properties, we have worked frequently on many historic national and regional landmarks across the UK including repairs and renovation work in Keeble College, Oxford.
We offer our expert services to both residential and commercial properties across Oxford and the areas surrounding the Thames Valley.
