Rochester Building and Damp have received praise from the Property Conservation Association.
Medway based Rochester Building Damp have recently undertaken a number of restoration projects within notable property along the Thanet coastline.
The former Birchington-on-Sea holiday home of Charles Dickens has recently received much needed care and attention, as decades of coastal erosion resulted in the 17th Century Manor House becoming severely damp.
Regarding the Property Conservation Association Heritage Certificate, the timber and damp business owner Daniel McLean responded: “We’ve been Property Conservation Association members for a number of years now. The Platinum Heritage Certification is greatly appreciated; it’s essentially recognition for our occasional work in Thanet. Although we are ‘damp experts’ in our own right, we are fundamentally old school builders with the knowledge to resolve damp issues on a structural level as opposed to just drilling holes and injecting chemicals. We have the capability to take a property apart and put it back together again, should we need to; and I think that probably requires many skills that aren’t taught these days. Restoration, renovation and conservation are all a unique practices that get over-looked in the modern world of damp-control and damp-proofing”
