Situated on the south coast of Devon, Plymouth is well known for its picturesque waterfront views and harbour. The city is filled with history, having lots of attractions to see, and with July being Plymouth’s hottest month it is an ideal location for British holiday makers.
Plymouth is home to the iconic Smeaton’s Tower, as well as the Royal William Yard – with one of the most important military buildings in the UK and the biggest collection of Grade 1 listed buildings in Europe constructed between 1825 and 1831. The city has the 9th largest university in Britain which dates back to 1862 and consists of around 32,000 students.
The Barbican area in Plymouth has some of the oldest listed buildings in the city, some being Tudor and others being Jacobean. All of these buildings could be prone to dry rot and damp due to their age but buildings such as the Minerva Inn pub (the oldest pub in Plymouth) which holds a lot of timber framing, need to be looked after and often checked for the likes of dry or wet rot and woodworm.
In the past, Plymouth has been known to suffer with flooding, with flash floods in places throughout the city. Excess damp from flooding can lead to problems such as penetrating or rising damp, causing timber decay and potential dangerous structural damage.
