As part of below and above ground works, we specialise in the provision of gas proof membranes, particularly associated with radon and methane.

Recently we have added invasive weed control (e.g. Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam and giant hogweed) to our range of services.

We can provide help, advice and solutions to problems of penetrating dampness, mould control and condensation.

All our work is carried out by our own employees and we take quality and service for our customers very seriously.
