Peter Cox have been pioneers in damp proof course technology since 1951, and are the market leaders in property preservation. We are a member of the Property Care Association (formerly known as the BWPDA), the British Structural Waterproofing Association and a registered TrustMark contractor.
Since Mr Peter Cox first patented his Transfusion DPC system 63 years ago, the company has helped to repair many thousands of homes and commercial properties throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
Our Newcastle upon Tyne office now lies on the north side of the Tyne on the Great West Road. The office is situated perfectly in order to cover projects across North East England including Newcastle, Sunderland, Gateshead, Durham, Whitby, Teesside and South Tyneside.
As with most industrial regions, the housing stock includes 19th century terraced housing plus a variety of more recent homes. Many older properties require a specialist service for woodworm treatment and dry & wet rot treatment resulting from penetrating damp.
Cases in our project file include repair and renovation of venerable buildings, for instance using Cintec structural reinforcement anchors in the refurbishment of listed buildings, and contracts for basement waterproofing both in commercial and domestic properties. We provide property preservation services to many commercial businesses operating in the North-East of England.
Once the industrial heartland of the North East, heavy industries like coal mining, iron and steel, and shipbuilding led to the growth of urban centres of Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. As the local economy has become less dependant on heavy industries, the area now has a focus on new industries such as car manufacturing.
Newcastle has colder winters and cooler summers than other many English cities. Newcastle upon Tyne is generally believed to be the coldest major city in England. As it is in the rain shadow of the North Pennines, Newcastle is also among the driest cities in the UK. The cold driving North-East wind means that warmth and protection against rain and damp are most important in properties.
