Peter Cox have national coverage, but operate out of local branches across the country, meaning that the service we provide is locally accessible and accountable.
Our surveyors are highly trained and hold CSRT, CSSW, CTIS or CRDS certification, enabling them to perform the Peter Cox services to the highest standard.
Our services include the likes of damp proofing, condensation control, woodworm treatment, wall stabilisation and dry/wet rot treatments. Our local team operating across Reading not only provide specialist surveys to private housing, but also commercial properties and historic and listed buildings.
Reading is a large town in Southern England, just under an hour and a half drive away from London and has regular direct trains to the capital every day. The large town is filled with attractions such as family parks, museums and historical buildings including the Reading Abbey, an important building in the medieval period.
Our local Peter Cox team cover the towns of Reading, Earley, Woodley and areas across the Thames floodplain. In the past the River Thames has been known to rise high enough to spill over its banks during periods of heavy rain, causing flooding around the Reading area. The Oracle shopping centre has suffered with flooding in recent years. Flooding can cause some serious issues in properties, including penetrating damp.
There are many old buildings around Reading, including many Grade II listed homes. Homeowners who live in a listed building have a responsibility under the Town and Country Planning Acts to keep it in good repair. Older buildings are susceptible to penetrating damp and potentially rising damp if a damp proofing course wasn't installed, or has become faulty.
With over 80% of the domestic residential properties that Peter Cox work on being pre-war and more than 50% dating from before the First World War, we have extensive experience in working with old properties and using the appropriate treatments.
