Local Area of Liverpool
Liverpool has a household population of approximately 333,000 people live in around 156,000 properties. In the early 1900’s Liverpool grew as a major centre due to having a shipping of goods and manufacturing base. The service industries dominate the income into the city but the port it is still even important today.
To support the growing major manufacturing industries there was a large number of housing constructed to support the increasing demand for workers. This meant that appromixately 34.9% of housing stock was built pre-1919 which above the average for England which is at 24.5%. The problem with older housing is that it is more susceptible to having damp problems. Timberwise are here to help with all your damp and timber issues occurring in your property.
Damp Proofing Solutions in Liverpool
Damp can occur for a number of reasons such as poor ventilation, poor maintenance and damp proof course (DPC). In the past, dampness was mainly present in older housing as they weren’t designed to prevent against the excess build-up of moisture. Historically, Liverpool housing was built up using permeable materials with no attempt to use any waterproofing measures.
Having damp proofing issues in the past, was largely due to poor maintenance of the property which has led to leaks. More recently it has been down to poor poorly developed building work by builders which has allowed moisture to escape.
To fix these damp issues our surveyors based in Liverpool will use a number of damp proofing solutions. One example for treating rising damp, Timberwise use a unique product called Dri Wise Pressure Injection. This product is a water-based product that creates a barrier so that moisture can not pass through and ensures that all cracks will be filled.
Woodworm Treatment in Liverpool
To treat woodworm, the most important part is that the right treatment being used is correct. Having a survey through Timberwise, will make sure that the identification process is carried out properly. There are a number of types of woodworm beetles, the most common is the Common Furniture Beetle which attacks softwood. The Death Watch Beetle is the 2nd most common beetle, this type of wood boring insect affects hardwood and is largely found in old church buildings.
Our surveyors will also check for exit holes, frass (waste product of wood) and the type of timber that has been affected. Once this is has been completed our team will provide the most effective woodworm treatment.
