Non-destructive and invasive investigation of property issues, from service issues (electrical, gas, drainage and water) and fault finding through to damp and structural engineering reports by our PCA (Property Care Association) accredited surveyors. Our technicians are trained to use Buckleys (UVRAL) roof leak detectors. We also carry out water ingress testing using the approved code from the CWCT.  We implement Infrared cameras as well as the pressure testing of drainage and plumbing services to ensure we find and solve your property problems swiftly. Where property preservation treatments were required, the incidence and extent of infestation will be identified by the use of non-destructive and destructive testing and measurement, including but not limited to the identification of wood boring beetle, calcium carbide testing of masonry substrates, chloride and nitrate testing of plaster/masonry. Concrete cover testing of steel reinforcement. Concrete (Schmidt) hammer testing of spalled, or areas affected by carbonation to assess extent of deterioration.  Appropriate measures are put in place should any issues be identified, with further investigation as to the extent of damage being given to areas affected.

DAMP PROOFING & TANKING

From residential property through to commercial and civil structures in rail and marine environments, we have the solutions to ensure your property assets remain dry, damp free, safe and fit for purpose. All of our damp proofing is carried out to BS6576 & BS8102. Following initial survey by our PCA trained surveyors, remedial damp proofing treatments may be required. As there is no such thing as a single 'fix-all' solution, each and every property is unique, and may suffer from differing source(s) of moisture issues. However the use of below ground cement based ‘Type A’ systems may be implemented as well as internally applied salt inhibiting internal renders (above ground) in conjunction with the insertion of a physical or chemical DPC. Where moisture ingress is noted as being caused by penetrating moisture, the defect will be recorded and repaired following review and agreement with the client, such as defective rainwater pipework/roofing/spalled brickwork/defective pointing and other similar dilapidated elements.

Thermal Efficiency Improvements: Loft Insulation, External & Internal Insulation (IWI, EWI & Hybrid) Systems

We offer you the latest green materials and technologies to transform your property and reduce heating costs, improve the external appearance of your property and minimise the ecological impact. A property using our insulation systems will not only save money, but also  create a warm, welcoming  environment in the winter and help to keep the property cool during the summer months  

Black Mould, Viruses, Bacterial Pathogen Removal & Testing

mould delamere.jpg

Research has shown mould, bacteria and viruses within an enclosed environment can be damaging to health. Removal of mould, viral and bacterial pathogens by using the latest innovations in the chemical application of NHS trusted biocides, ventilation and heating will keep you comfortable, healthy and safe. For landlords we will ensure your property conforms to the Fitness for Human Habitation Act 2018 to mitigate against claims for disrepair.

Water Damage Recovery

Time is of the essence when water damage affects your home, as it can be hugely detrimental to the structural integrity of your floors, ceilings, and home. Water Damage America understands how water damage affects the different surfaces of your home dependent on the materials used, and we will work quickly to ensure that minimal damage is done so the restoration process is more efficient.

Water Damage America can clean and restore homes from any water damage. While each situation may vary, some common sources of water damage are:

  • Flooding

  • Storm Damage

  • Dryers, Refrigerators, or Toilets Leaking

  • Broken Pipes

  • Sewage Issues

Drainage Jetting Clearance, Repairs, Renewals, Installation & CCTV Surveys

If left untreated drainage problems can have a devastating impact upon structures, ranging from subsidence through to  dampness and vermin issues. We use the latest digital CCTV drainage camera equipment and WinCan software to identify faults and our own in-house teams will clean sub-surface pipework with a high pressure water jetting machine. If pipes are broken or displaced we can renew or repair these too.

VENTILATION

Positive Input Ventilation Systems.png

Ventilation 

Using the latest in condensation control solutions, we can identify and specify the type of ventilation system you need to keep relative humidity within approved limits, by the use of passive and mechanical ventilation and extraction units (c-MEV, d-MEV, SRHR & MVHR types) to Building Regulation Part F, as well as Positive Input Ventilation Systems (PIV's)

Flood Alleviation, Land Drainage Installation inc SuDs & Percolation Testing Solutions

224f574c-996f-45ee-b840-faf7bb0c3bbf.jpg

In recent years the UK has suffered a number of devastating flood events. We can help alleviate the problems associated with flooding from the installation of traditional soakaways and the modern day equivalent of attenuation cells to reduce the effects of surface flooding. We also install sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDs), which mimic nature and typically manage rainfall close to where it falls.

 

We can carry out percolation testing and the associated calculations necessary to assess the drainage of sub-soils as given by the Building research Establishment 'BRE 365 Soakaway Testing' document before any drainage is installed to save time and money should a given site not be suitable for the creation of a soakaway. There is no need to contact your local council for such an installation as part of the planning process.

Balcony Deck & Staircase re-surfacing and waterproofing

WP_20161111_13_07_33_Pro.jpg

A common fault associated with Asphalt and bituminous based balcony surfacing is the material longevity, with defective materials often suffering from fissures and fractures. We can repair these elements and apply a new durable hard wearing surface, which can be walked on in a matter of hours, for a fraction of the cost of complete replacement, in a multitude of colours and shades to suit every budget and to protect and resist the passage of moisture

Site Investigation & Geotechnical Analysis of Sub-Soils

4. Geotechnical Site Investigation.jpg

Our teams specialise in the excavation of trial pits and applying borehole technologies to assess the soil sub-strata, groundwater and root identification deep below ground. We have access to a leading network of UK based laboratories to provide you with an accurate analysis of your site.

 

Our experienced geotechnical engineers undertake site investigations primarily for the purpose of assessing subsidence claims.

In a Subsidence scenario, the investigation is undertaken to determine the likely cause of the movement, with recommendations regards to appropriate methods of stabilising the structure along with future repair solutions will be given.

In order to make the above assessments, we utilise hand excavated trial pits, hand augured boreholes, shell and auger drilling apparatus, modified window sampling rigs (capable of drilling to ten metres), a complete laboratory service including root identification analysis and geotechnical consultancy work.
 

A typical list of works are given below:

  • Existing Foundation Assessment.

  • Hand Augered Boreholes

  • Shell and Auger Drilling Works

  • Window Sampling Works

  • Soakaway Analysis

  • In-situ Sampling and Testing

  • Tree Root Identification

  • Instrumentation Installation

  • Full Geotechnical Analysis

  • Chemical Analysis
