Southampton is the largest city based in the county on Hampshire, famous for The Mayflower, the famed ship that set sail carrying the Pilgrim fathers to America.
The city is home to the second largest container port in the country and is one of the busiest cruise terminals. Located 10 miles inland, the port lies between the rivers Test and Itchen and the head of the Southampton Water – the mile-wide drowned valley.
Places we cover in the Southampton area include: Maybush, Sholing, Woolston, Maidenbury, North Stoneham, Eastleigh, Chilworth and Portswood, Ocean Village, Thornhill, Netley, Butlocks Heath, Totton and Chandler’s Ford. Our local experts can offer effective solutions for a range of damp proofing and timber treatments to keep your property free from mould, woodworm and dry rot or wet rot.
Southampton’s wettest month is January with an average of 80mm of rain. It is vital that properties have the correct protection against the likes of penetrating damp. Damaged guttering may flood meaning water penetrates into your property, leading to potential structural issues or even wet rot and woodworm outbreaks. Penetrating damp can lead to other damp issues such as damp plasterwork, increased heat loss, musty smells, and unsightly water damage on either or both the outside and inside of a property.
Heavy amounts of rain has also brought floods to Southampton in the past, causing businesses to close due to water flooding their properties. Our Peter Cox DryWall Thermotek can be used in conjunction with our mortar treatment to increase the flood resistance of masonry, making it particularly effective at repelling flash floods.
