About Tapco HomeDry

Tapco HomeDry was established by me in 1971, simply as Tapco (Treatment and Preservation company) and is now one of the most established and reputable damp proofing, basement conversion, water damage, Dry Rot and property maintenance companies, in London and the Home Counties. I started the company in response to a growing need for professional property services, as the market rapidly grew. Since then it has evolved under my daily management into a team of experts I am proud of, able to deal with all manner of property destroyers and defects, from the roof to the drains and everything in between.


Our investigations are carried out by experienced, specialist surveyors, who are qualified to the high standards of the PCA (Property Care Association). They not only act as a ‘seal of approval’ on the quality of service we provide but also ensure the remedial work we carry out, is to the high standards they set.

This, together with our Which? Trusted Trader and ISO 9001:2015 accreditations, not only underlines that we are specialists and experts in our field but ensures that our surveyors and technicians are constantly kept up to date with current methods and expertise. We are a long-term member of Trust Mark (Government Endorsed Standards) and a member of the BWA (Basement Waterproofing Association). In addition, GPI (Guarantee Protection Insurance) gives our clients peace of mind, that in the unlikely event we cease trading, our guarantee is protected for the first 10-years, by them.
