The suburb of Streatham was a fashionable spa town in the 1600’s, and later a genteel Victorian neighbourhood, becoming the entertainment capital of south London in the Roaring Twenties. A wide variety of housing and historic buildings have survived since that time and today it offers an array of activities for everyone including indoor racing at the karting track and a 36-lane Megabowl together with many restaurants, bars and clubs.
Are you living in SW16 and considering converting a disused basement or cellar into valuable living accommodation? Maybe you have a basement that requires a repair – if so we can help with that too. Tapco HomeDry can carry out specialist damp proofing ready for your own builder to plaster or dry-line – as it is imperative that all aspects of the damp proofing are only carried out by a specialist who is qualified and experienced in damp proofing. Alternatively, we can deal with the entire project.
Many cellars that Tapco Homedry have surveyed since we were established in 1971 have been found to have damp which has caused damage and deterioration making the rooms unusable. Sometimes the damp, lack of ventilation and inadequate temperature has proved perfect conditions for the dreaded dry rot (Serpula lacrymans) to develop which can be extremely destructive.
