Preservation Treatments were recently instructed to carry out structural repair works to a property in Surrey, with the installation of a Helifix Helibeam system incorporating Helibars, Bowties and CemTies.
Preservation Treatments were invited to submit a tender for, and subsequently instructed to carry out, the installation of a Delta Cavity Drain Membrane system in a basement in Hackney, London, to comply with BS8102;2009 Grade 3.
Preservation Treatments were requested to provide a timber report and quotation prior to the purchase of this property in Sherfield on Loddon, Hampshire. The property is a brick and timber frame built, Grade II Listed building. The purchasers were concerned about some decaying timbers to the exterior of the building.
This particular enquiry came from a Chartered Surveyor, who was acting for a young couple intent on purchasing their first house. It was clear that previous repair works had been carried out in a number of different areas but carried out to a poor standard.
The owners of this property in Chiswick, London discovered a dark red/ brown coloured dust appearing in the cellar and ground floor areas. They were concerned as they did not know what the dust was or the reason for its appearance.
