Are you shopping around for quotes for
Timber Treatments or Damp Proofing?

There are a lot of Timber Treatment and Damp Proofing companies out there - some very professional and good value. Others, well, maybe less so. But they'll all give you a price for your job.

You'll probably get a wide range of prices and you may be very attracted to some of the lower prices, but..

..ask them: Does their price include..

Removing electrical sockets and re-fitting afterwards?

Removing and refitting radiators

Removing and re-fitting skirting boards?

With most Timber and Damp companies,
the answer is probably "no".

You will find that, if you ask most other damp-proofing companies, their prices for timber treatment or damp proofing will not include work such as removing skirting boards, radiators and electrical sockets - all of which MUST be done before any treatment of the underlying problem can be done. Other timber and damp-proofers will expect you to have had this done (and pay for it) before they even set foot on your property... and then for you to pay AGAIN to have it all put back, when they have finished!

With Thanet Timber and Damp Ltd, it's all included.

Because our staff have many years of electrical, carpentry and plumbing qualifications and experience - we do all this for you - and it's all included in our estimated price.

We're proud of our "All Inclusive" approach - and it saves you a lot of money, too!

Our full range of Services

With 36 years in the business, we have a range of trades and skills. In fact, everything you need to get your timber and damp problems sorted out.

Rising Damp

We install new chemical Damp Proof Courses.

Older properties may not have been built with a damp proof course or the existing damp proof course may have broken down over time, or have become "bridged"...

Condensation Treatment

Condensation often arises from the contact of warm, humid air with cold surfaces, such as walls and window frames.

Un-treated condensation can lead to mould which can be detrimental to health. In suitable conditions, mould can grow very quickly.

Basement Tanking

Basement flats which are fully or partly below ground level often suffer from Damp.

With a great deal of experience in this area, we can carry out the Damp Proofing required to bring any below-ground structure up to standard - and it MAY not cost as much as you think!

Wet Rot Treatment

Wet Rot can occur where there is a moisture content of more than 20%, caused by something like a sub-floor pipe leak. It can also occur where floor joist ends or wall plates are in contact with damp walls.

Dry Rot Treatment

Dry Rot is a form of wood-destroying fungus - Serpula Lacrymans which appears on the surface of infected timber which as a white, cotton-wool like growth.

Dry Rot can appear where timber has a moisture content of more than 20%.

Woodworm Treatment

The term "woodworm" is commonly used to describe a number of wood-boring insect larvae.

The parent insects lay their eggs in timber and the larvae which develop bore their way through the timber.

Cavity Wall Ties

Remedial mechanical wall ties are supplied and fitted to rectify situations where existing masonry ties have corroded.

We cover domestic dwellings and small commercial buildings up to 3 storeys, not greater than 15 meters in height.

Lintel Repair

Lintel repair is achieved with the fitting of Helicoidal Bars (Stainless steel re-inforcement rods) to re-stabilise masonry above failed lintels.

This is effective in cavity and solid walls.
