With years of extensive work in the property preservation industry, Peter Cox have the experience and knowledge to help you treat and get rid of issues such as damp and mould as well as structural timber and masonry problems.

Not being far from the coast, Thetford has a generally mild and temperate marine climate though rainfall is significant meaning penetrating damp in buildings could become an issue to some property owners.
Another one of our services, which is popular in coastal areas, is bird deterrence in commercial and historical buildings. Without effective bird control, nuisance birds such as pigeons and seagulls can cause a variety of problems to buildings. At Peter Cox we can offer different solutions for bird control that are effective but unobtrusive and humane.
Thetford is situated at the heart of the Brecks natural area in Norfolk. Today it is probably best known to most people as Walmington-on-Sea. For the town was used for the exteriors of the BBC TV series ‘Dad’s Army’ – though the sea is a good few miles to the east, this market town is actually situated halfway between Cambridge and Norwich on the A11.
In the 1960s the town grew considerably to accommodate the large numbers of people who moved away from the capital as part of a Government policy known as London overspill, which sought to move residents out of Greater London. Much of the housing still dates from the 1960’s and suffers from the typical problems associated with housing from this time.
