South East London’s Forest Hill is home to two nature reserves and a notable museum. There’s also a library of Arts and Crafts design. Whether you love nature, dead or alive, or architecture, there’s something interesting for you in Forest Hill.
The Horniman Museum has both an aquarium and an extensive taxidermy collection. It also has other anthropological and cultural collections.
Both the Dacres Wood Nature Reserve and Devonshire Road Nature Reserve welcome people to their open days. They’re perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors. And anyone who loves buildings will find a number of Grade-II listed constructions.
If you live on Forest Hill’s leafy streets, your home is likely to be from the Victorian era to the 1930s. Older homes can be prone to damp, either in their basements or throughout the rest of the property.
If damp is a problem for you, you need to face it head on. Damp can be caused by issues both inside and outside your home. It’s essential to identify the causes so that you can cure the problem right away.
External Damp Proofing
At Tapco HomeDry, we survey your whole home to determine how to protect it against damp. It’s not just the inside of your home that could leave your property vulnerable, but the outside too.
There are many reasons that we’re trusted by so many to damp proof their homes, and one is that we do such a thorough job. The exterior of your home could lead to damp if you don’t protect it. Your brickwork could let moisture into your property. This might be causing lateral penetrating damp or rising damp. Faults in your building, including the roof, could result in damp in your home.
Internal Damp Proofing
Inside your home, you also need to address the ways that water and mould could damage the property. We specialise in damp proofing, including controlling condensation and protecting basements. We know just what to look for to determine the cause of a problem and prevent it from happening again.
We can reduce the build-up of condensation caused by high humidity. And we can identify the cause of other types of damp. Our expert surveyors can recommend the best treatment and damp proofing for each case. Tapco helps you to keep your property in top condition so you don’t have to worry about damp causing havoc in your life.
