Maidstone, near the M20 between Folkestone and Aylesford, is the county town of Kent and sits on the River Medway which flows into the Thames estuary. Bordering London to the northwest and the chalk cliffs of Dover to the southeast, Kent is known as ‘the Garden of England’. It’s a landscape of rolling hills, fertile farmland, cultivated country estates and fecund fruit orchards.
Kent sits at the most south-easterly corner of the British Isles and is the gateway to the gateway to mainland Europe. On a clear day it is possible to see France (a mere 21 miles away) across the Straits of Dover.
The coastline of Kent is continuously changing, due to coastal erosion of the soft chalk geology and tectonic movement. Kent does suffer from the occasional earth tremor and though rarely of any magnitude they can still cause structural damage to property. More damaging is the relentless battering the coastline receives from the sea. Coastal properties are also at the mercy to these same eroding forces.
Situated in Maidstone, our Kent team of surveyors work across the south-east county including Canterbury and Folkestone.
Kent is susceptible to bird problems, with many coastal towns providing a perfect nesting place for nuisance birds. They scavenge for food and roost in properties, creating unsightly fouling, while potentially damaging stonework and blocking guttering. This may cause penetrating damp problems, leading to structural timber issues, woodworm or wet rot.
Kent’s coastline has also suffered from severe flooding in the past from stormy weather. The River Stour in Canterbury often threatens to burst its banks during times of heavy rainfall, causing roads to close and properties to flood.
