What building services do you provide?
As well as being a professional roofing contractor, we also specialise in building and landscaping services, from small home improvements to large-sale property renovations. Our trusted team has over 22 years of experience and boasts skills in everything from repointing and rendering to damp proofing and lead work.
What are the advantages of rendering?
Rendering is where a mortar is applied to the exterior walls of a property and can greatly improve the appearance of a building, as well as protect it. Adding a layer of render to a brick wall will help prevent damp from occurring and improve the insulation. We offer rendering in a wide range of colours and coatings for property owners in and around Warrington.
What are the causes of damp?
Damp problems occur when there is an excess of moisture that can’t escape, often caused by poor ventilation where the moisture has nowhere to go or by a sudden increase of moisture entering the building, such as changing weather conditions. Leaking gutters and holes in old roofs, flat roofs or even new roofs, can also cause water to enter a property.
How do I know if my property has a damp problem?
Some of the most regular signs of a damp problem are visual water droplets on the walls, misted windows, peeling or blistering wallpaper, patches of dark mould and a musty smell. If you suspect you have an issue with damp in your property, do not hesitate to contact our building and roofing contractor team for damp proofing solutions. We provide building, damp proofing and roofing services in Warrington and throughout the North West.
