Leeds Property Care Services

Leeds developed a major city through engineering, wool and iron industries, however, in more recent times Leeds has become center of financial and legal centres outside of London. In keeping with other major industrial cities, there was a demand for housing.

The type of housing created in the Victorian period still exists today which means they are most likely to be affected by dampness. The properties that existed in Victorian times are prone to dampness due to the construction methods not including a damp proof course at that time.

Timberwise Leeds provide their good reputation for quality and service continues to spread throughout Yorkshire. Timberwise care for the properties of many high profile customers in the area including those of York City Council, Samuel Smiths Brewery and Kirklees County Council.

How Damp Proofing Is Carrying Out?

At Timberwise, we are specialists in providing damp proofing for properties in the Leeds area. Dampness can occur in your property for a number of reasons, penetrating damp for example usually occurs due to poor external defects (damaged rainwater goods). Our DriWise damp proofing injection cream to the electro osmotic damp proofing we have the best damp treatment systems suit all properties.

Having damp in your property can cause further serious issues to your problems such as wood rot which can cause more structural damage to buildings. Unlike wet rot which is localised, dry rot can spread throughout the property if the correct treatment isn’t applied as soon as possible. By having a survey through Timberwise, our surveyors can identify the type of timber decay issue and provide the most efficient solutions to the problem.

How Woodworm Treatment is Carried Out?

Wood-boring insects can also structural damage in buildings, so the identification process is important as there are a number of different types of woodworm beetles. The most common form of woodworm beetle is the ‘Common Furniture Beetle’ which attacks softwood while the ‘Death Watch Beetle’ affects hardwood.

Having a woodworm survey by our Leeds team can identify the woodworm infestation affecting your property and then if necessary provide woodworm treatment. All treatments carried out by Timberwise come with a long term guarantee you can be assured that all work is produced to the highest of standards.
 

Leeds Damp and Timber Case Study

A recent case study carried out by our Leeds team were to inspect a property located in Yeadon for damp and timber issues. The property had a damp and musty smell occurring which is the most prominent sign that damp was occurring in the property.

Another sign that damp was present was the internal walls were being affected by high levels of moisture content. From the inspection, the surveyor also noted there was no damp proof course installed which is one of the main reasons why rising damp is present.

If the damp problem was left untreated then more serious property care issues can occur such as dry rot. In order to rectify the issue, the Timberwise team decided tanking a cellar would be applied onto the walls. A cavity wall membrane system was also applied to ensure full guarantee that the damp would penetrate through the surface.

What Our Customers From Leeds Say

Having phone a few companies who were booking weeks in advance, Timberwise were able to squeeze me as they were a local company. The survey was carried out quickly, the surveyor Nic Glover rang me on the day as he knew i needed information quickly to help the purchase proceed quickly.

The work was later booked in and carried out by a great and friendly guy called Steven Wade, take great care in his work, updated me throughout the day and did a really thorough job.
