Southampton’s wettest month like the rest of the UK is January with an average of 80mm of rain. It is vital that properties have the correct protection against the likes of penetrating damp especially in months with high amounts of rain. Penetrating damp can lead to other damp issues such as wet rot, damp plasterwork, increased heat loss, musty smells, and unsightly water damage on either or both the outside and inside of a property.
Heavy amounts of rain has also brought floods to Southampton in the past, causing businesses to close due to water flooding their properties. Our Peter Cox DryWall Thermotek can be used in conjunction with our mortar treatment to increase the flood resistance of masonry, making it particularly effective at repelling flash floods.

just want to express my thanks to your surveyor. His advice was very good and fortunately prevented us from paying a lot of money to a very disreputable firm for problems we did not have.We will certainly recommend your firm to everyone you know. – G Youngsmon
Southampton is the largest city based in the county on Hampshire, famous for The Mayflower, the famed ship that set sail carrying the Pilgrim’s fathers to America.
Southampton is also famous for the success of what we know today as the ‘fish finger’. Clarance Birdseye tested herring sticks and cod sticks on shoppers in Southampton. The fish sticks were a major success with the customers and rolled out across the country.
The city is home to the second largest container port in the country and is one of the busiest cruise terminals. Located 10 miles inland, the port lies between the rivers Test and Itchen and the head of the Southampton Water – the mile-wide drowned valley.
