Our Local Peter Cox team cover the towns of Reading, Earley, Woodley as well as areas alongside the Thames floodplain.
In the past the River Thames has been known to rise high enough to spill over its banks during periods of heavy rain, causing flooding around the Reading area. The Oracle shopping centre has suffered with flooding in recent years. Flooding can cause some serious issues in properties, including penetrating damp which can lead to problems of mould.
There are many old buildings to be found around Reading, including many Grade II listed homes. Homeowners who live in a listed building have a responsibility under the Town and Country Planning Acts to keep it in good repair.
With over 80% of the domestic residential properties that Peter Cox work on being pre-war and more than 50% dating from before the First World War, we have extensive experience in working with old properties and using the appropriate treatments.
Our surveyors are highly trained and hold CSRT, CSSW, CTIS or CRDS certification, enabling them to perform the Peter Cox services to the highest standard.
Thank you for organising everything so fast …. also to let you know that (the technician) was a pleasure to have working in our home – very punctual, professional and hard working. He seems to have done a great job and kept me posted with progress. – D Brown
Reading is a large town in Southern England, just under an hour and a half drive away from London and has regular direct trains to the capital every day.
The large town is filled with attractions with the likes of family parks, six museums and historical buildings including the Reading Abbey, an important building in the medieval period.
Known for one of the largest rock music events in the UK, Reading is the host to the annual Reading Festival which started out as the National Jazz Festival from 1961-1970, but then changed to Reading Festival in 1971 and has been one of the country’s most popular music events ever since.
