Tapco’s services include:

Damp Solutions

Tapco offers guaranteed solutions for all sorts of damp problems, whether caused by rising damp, lateral damp, rain penetration or condensation.

Experienced surveyors will visit to diagnose and assess the problem, before submitting a report with detailed recommendations of the most appropriate solution. All work is carried out by technicians fully trained in using the latest damp proofing materials and working in a manner which has the least impact on the property’s occupiers.

Below ground walls are often affected by lateral damp penetration and has many years experience in cementitious structural waterproofing. Whether work is required on a small area or as part of a basement conversion, Tapco takes care to use experienced technicians fully trained in the safe use of tanking chemicals. For basement conversions, cavity drain membranes may also be installed.

Damage Restoration Work

Tapco understands that water damage from a burst pipe or flood needs rapid, expert attention. The company has built up a vast knowledge of the materials and methods necessary for this specialist field and liaises directly with insurers and loss adjusters so that there is minimal delay in restoration work getting underway.

The company also undertakes restoration work after fire damage.

Dry Rot and Woodworm

As with damp proofing, Tapco’s dry rot remedial work is covered by a 20-year guarantee. The company has carried out numerous dry rot eradication contracts and its technicians are fully conversant with the latest safe chemicals and preservatives. A surveyor will visit to inspect timbers and assess the extent of the infestation and identify the source of the damp. All fungus-affected wood is safely disposed of and replaced with treated timber. Care is taken to ensure that plaster is taken off and replaced over an area beyond the visible extent of the problem.

With woodworm control, the first job is to identify the species involved so the correct woodworm treatment is selected. Tapco uses safe preservatives that allow rooms to be used again within an hour and offers a 20-year guarantee on its work.

Cavity Wall Ties

Tapco also replaces defective cavity wall ties with modern corrosion-resistant bars and rectifies the cracked brickwork associated with this problem. Work is guaranteed and the guarantee can be insured by the GPI scheme.

Blocked Drains

A fleet of vehicles with specialised de-scaling equipment and jet washers is available to swiftly deal with blocked drains in London and the Home Counties. Tapco has sophisticated CCTV cameras for surveying drains to check for damage. If cracked pipes are found, the problem can generally be swiftly solved by skilled operatives inserting a structural drain liner to stop leaks. Occasionally, drains need to be excavated and replaced.

Many testimonials acknowledge the company’s friendly and courteous staff and the professional manner in which tasks are undertaken.
