Property Preservation Services in Preston
Our Preston office serves Blackburn, Burnley and the towns of the Ribble Valley. We have been based in Lancashire and Cumbria for over 25 years . We also attend to damp problems, woodworm and fungus infestations in the areas as follows: Preston, Chorley, Kendal, Barrow in Furness, Lake District, Lancaster, Blackpool, Morecambe, Carlisle, West Cumbria and East Lancashire.
The climate of Preston is of a temperate maritime type, with a narrow range of temperatures, similar to the rest of the British Isles. Being relatively close to the Irish Sea, this is more pronounced than areas to the south and east of Preston. Like most of inland Lancashire, Preston receives a higher than UK average total of rainfall, even in the driest month there is a lot of rain and it is slightly colder.
Problems like damage to structural timber, fungal decay through dry or wet rot, black mould, and woodworm can arise if damp gets into a property. This means that the prevention of controlling rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation is very important in this area.
Our project file includes work on public sector housing refurbishments and repair work on Townhead, Slaidburn and Millom Infants School.
I would recommend your company to others stating how professional, courteous and informative all involved with my inquiry and eventual work carried out. – A M Winder
