Wallington used to have a Surrey postal code but is now considered part of Greater London. Located in the London Borough of Sutton, which is a top performing borough for education, Wallington is considered a grammar school stronghold with three popular schools.
Tapco HomeDry knows Wallington well as we have helped home owners there for over 44 years with their damp and timber problems. In the damp business since 1971, we are London, Surrey and the Home Counties damp and dry rot experts.
Recently our Surveyor found a bad case of wood destroying fungi affecting the internal surfaces of a property in Wallington. This was an end terrace property only built within the last five years which shows that you don’t have to live in an old property to experience problems.
We sent the property’s owner a full Tapco HomeDry Surveyor’s report detailing how there was an advanced attack of wet rot fungus (Coniophora Puteana) to the window frame to the first floor side bay window and that no damp proofing treatment was required as the property had been constructed with a sound physical damp proof course.
Our highly experienced Tapco HomeDry Operatives then attended the property and dealt with the problem by cutting out the affected section of window sill and applying a high performance timber preservative to the remaining sound timber. Finally we fitted a new section of window sill using new pre-treated timber and leaving in a fungicidal priming paint.
If remedial action hadn’t been taken quickly there would have been a high risk of further decay and water damage to the wall plaster and internal decorations. All work was covered under our Tapco HomeDry 20 year guarantee through Guarantee Protection Insurance (GPI), giving the home owner complete peace of mind.
