What Property Care and Preservation Services Do You Need?

Watertight Homes Ltd

For all your property care and preservation services

Dry rot and wet rot

We also offer treatment for dry rot and wet rot. Both types of rot are caused by a species of lignin eating fungus. Lignin is a polymer which binds timber cells together. Both dry rot and wet rot infestations can cause significant damage to your property, and should be treated immediately. 

Timber affected by wet rot may become flaky, brittle and spongelike. It may change colour or shrink. The area may begin to smell damp or musty. If you notice any of these signs get in touch with us as soon as possible. We will arrange a date to inspect your property and produce a comprehensive, jargon free report recommending next steps. 

Commercial Tanking

We provide basement tanking services to businesses and homes around Yorkshire and Manchester. We specialise in cavity drain membranes, an economical, effective alternative to conventional cementitious tanking systems. Call us today for reliable home and business maintenance services.

Cavity Wall Ties

Cavity wall ties bind the inner and outer walls of a house or building together. In some cases, cavity wall ties may deteriorate, causing the inner and outer walls to bend away from one another. 

When this happens, immediate action is crucial. We'll visit your property and produce a comprehensive, jargon free report, outlining recommended steps. The cavity wall ties we use are made from stainless steel  and secured to the inner and outer walls with polyester or epoxy resin. Get in touch with us today, and we will arrange to visit you at your home or business.

Woodworm Treatment

Woodworm infestations occur when wood boring beetles lay their eggs in the surface of timber. Wood-boring beetles spend the majority of their lives as larvae. You may only notice the infestation as adult beetles leave their homes, leaving exit holes behind them. 

Sudden timber decay is often indicative of an active woodworm infestation, as is the presence of a fine, powder-like dust. Get in touch with us if you believe that you have a woodworm infestation.

Damp Proofing

Since our inception, we have specialised in damp proofing. Our team of experts are fully qualified and trained to diagnose and remedy damp related problems. We provide high quality, cost-effective solutions and treatments to damp

Damp causes illness and may compromise the structural integrity of your property. Experiencing peeling plaster, mould spots, tide marks or a distinctive musky smell in your home or business? You may need damp proofing. Get in touch with us today for a comprehensive quote.

Basement Conversions

Increasingly popular, basement conversions are fantastic, cost-effective methods of maximising functional living space without the need for complex structural renovations. Get creative and transform your basement into a home cinema, extra bedroom or games room. We specialise in crafting bespoke basement renovations for our clients. Check out the work we did for a client in Yorkshire, transforming his basement into a cinema room. Still unsure? Browse our case studies for inspiration, or get in touch with us for advice. 

Condensation treatment

Condensation happens when there is a significant difference in temperature and humidity between the atmosphere inside the property, and the air outside. In some cases, condensation may result in structural damage to your property, affecting window frames, ledges and walls. 

If you spot water droplets on windows or walls, decaying window frames, peeling wallpaper or mould, your home may be at risk from condensation. Contact us for a comprehensive quote.

Timber preservation

Timber is susceptible to damage from dry rot, wet rot and woodworm. Identifying and remedying these issues quickly is crucial to avoid structural damage to your property. If you live in or around Yorkshire or Manchester, and believe that your home or business would benefit from timber preservation, get in touch with us today

Early timber preservation minimises longterm damage to your property, and improves the durability and longevity of wood. Our team of industry experts will visit your property and treat any timber with state-of-the-art chemicals and application techniques.
