Safeguard Your Property – Damp Proofing Treatments in Essex, Herts, North London, East London, and Customers Along the M11 Corridor

Hello and welcome to our website. If you are researching damp or timber issues then you will probably have visited several websites and ended up just as confused as you perhaps were when you started to look into causes and treatments for them. So many different companies all telling you different things, from causes to remedial treatment required. All requiring invasive works from drilling and injecting chemicals into the walls to removing plasters and renders up to 1.2 metres high and replacing with “renovating plasters” and such like. The same old methods being offered time and time again with no real interest in solving problems other than charging lots of money for treatments which may not really be required.

Not so with Lifecote East Ltd. Here we look for the actual causes of damp, not just attending to the symptoms (removing renders, injecting horrible chemicals etc) and then when they return blaming something else as the cause.

Lifecote East has been operating for over ten years within the damp proofing industry, priding ourselves on giving the best service regarding all types of damp and its associated problems, from condensation and mould, penetrating damp and so called “rising damp”. We address all areas of the home or business premises, including basement issues utilising the latest systems and methods to provide dry living areas. We also inspect and offer solutions for timber problems, from dry and wet rot to pesticide infestations etc.

We offer a prompt and reliable service for all our clients for the correct diagnosis of all types of damp and their causes.

We are full members of the Damp Proofing Association.
