Croydon is a lively arts, shopping, and business centre in northeast Surrey, just ten miles from central London with superb transport links and London only 20 minutes away, it has the prominent landmark of a huge Victorian water tower, surrounded by ornamental gardens plus over a hundred other open spaces. Eight hundred restaurants and cafes provide a diverse range of foods from countries all over the world.
If you own a property in Croydon which has an unused basement or cellar you may be considering converting it to provide much needed additional living space, or you may need repairs to an existing basement. Damp and mould found in Basements combined with lack of ventilation and inconsistent temperature can provide ideal conditions for the dreaded dry rot (Serpula lacrymans) to thrive and cause great destruction.
Damp proofing to ensure that the walls and floors are dry and stay that way for a long time is the most critical aspect of the whole job. It is also vital that all aspects of the damp proofing are only carried out by an experienced damp proofing specialist such as Tapco HomeDry and not by a general contractor. Tapco HomeDry can deal with the whole project or just the specialist damp proofing ready for your own contractor to dry-line or plaster.
