All your timber preservation needs

Whatever timber preservation work you require doing in Southend, our team of professional engineers will be able to assist you.

Damp Proofing

Damp is the most frequent structural issue encountered in domestic properties. Damp proofing is applied to the walls and floors of buildings to stop exterior moisture passing into the home.


Woodworm are attracted to dampness in the timbers. Whilst we can control an infestation through chemical treatments, an investigation into what is causing the damp is also advisable.

Basement Waterproofing & Tanking

Being below ground level, basements are a natural point of ingress for unwanted moisture. A full waterproofing and tanking service will eliminate damp, and leave you with a functional basement space.

Rising Damp

Rising damp takes place when groundwater starts to travel up through building materials like brick, mortar and – of course – timbers. There are a number of treatments, and our team will advise you on the most effective.
