Middlesex was a county in southeast England that is now divided between Greater London, Hertfordshire and Surrey. The word is formed from the Anglo-Saxon ‘middel’ and ‘Seaxe’. The name means ‘territory of the middle Saxons’ referring to the tribal origin of its inhabitants, who dwelled between the East Saxons in Essex, and the West Saxons round Winchester.
Our branch operating across Middlesex offers a full range of property preservation techniques and covers the following areas: Southall, Brentford, Chiswick, Richmond, Twickenham, Ealing and Hounslow. Also parts of North London such as Potters Bar, Enfield, Edmonton and Tottenham.
Being a predominantly urban location, the area is attractive to pigeons, as there are little predators and an abundance of food throughout the conurbation. Peter Cox offers effective solutions for bird deterrence and removal of bird fouling. It is also a largely low-lying region and may be at risk of flooding and penetrating damp from significant rainfall.
The clay geology to the north and alluvium on gravel to the south can also cause structural challenges, especially to property built on clay. A characteristic of many clay soils is that they swell in volume in wet conditions and reduce in volume as they dry. Historic buildings are particularly susceptible to problems associated with seasonal movement because they were often built with shallow foundations that do not extend below the affected clay layers.
