Property Repairs in Essex, East London, and North London
Rising damp, penetrating damp, wet rot, dry rot, and condensation all have one thing in common: they can be devastating to your property. Once you have eliminated the cause of the problem, you are often left with significant damage that needs repairing. From crumbling plaster and saturated timbers, to eroded mortar and loose brickwork, the damage can be extensive, especially if damp and rot has been allowed to fester for some time.
At Property Care Services Ltd, we don’t just handle your damp proofing problems, we help you deal with the aftermath as well. Working from our Loughton office, we travel across Essex and into East London and North London, providing essential property repairs to our valued customers. This includes those in Buckhurst Hill, Chingford, Epping, Loughton, Ongar, Waltham Abbey, Wanstead, Woodford Green, and beyond.
Professional Property Repairs in Essex
As your local property repair specialists, we have much to offer our customers across Essex. Here is a few of our more popular services…
Assessing Damp Damage
The first thing we need to do is establish the extent of the damage.
At Property Care Services Ltd, we try to provide repairs, rather than replacements, wherever possible. Our contractors will look at the affected parts of your property and provide you with their expert opinion on what should be done, together with a free, no-obligation quote.
Many of the conditions we deal with can have a detrimental effect on household timber.
Both dry rot and woodworm can seriously damage this material as can rising damp, though that is often less severe. In mild cases, we can apply a chemical wood treatment, but sometimes the timber is too damaged and must be removed and replaced.
Masonry and Brickwork Repairs
While the bricks themselves tend to fare quite well in damp conditions, the porous mortar and pointing holding them together is prone to crumbling and deterioration.
In these circumstances, it may be necessary to repoint the brickwork. This involves applying fresh mortar to the affected area to ensure its structural integrity remains intact.
Plaster and Rendering Repairs
Much like mortar, plaster and render can be seriously damaged by damp and other, similar conditions.
Plaster in particular is notoriously fragile after being subjected to damp conditions. If your plasterwork is crumbling to the touch, we can help repair the damaged area. Visit our Rendering and Plastering page elsewhere on this site to find out how.
