London and Kent Construction Ltd offer repairs following floods as well as cellar waterproofing and flooding protection for those wishing to avoid flooding.

With severe winters and wet weather we have seen a rise in storm damage and floods in the London and Kent regions. Rising water table levels and extreme weather result in flooding via coal chutes and air vents as well as rising through cellar floors and penetrating brickwork. In addition, insufficient drainage systems in gardens and relatively newly built hard standings and driveways can result in a surplus of water which can result in flooding.

Flooding and storm damage can be costly and stressful. Even if the damage caused is covered by insurance, often losses due to flooding are irreplaceable; it is impossible to put a price on a family photo album, diaries or favourite books. It is, therefore, clear that protection from flooding is much better than remedying flood damage.

Whether you are embarking on an extension or renovation project or you just want to protect your property from storm and flood damage, there are several ways in which we can help you to protect yourself. These include a general overhaul of outside gulleys (ensuring sufficient drainage and making sure that drainpipes are kept clear), getting your cellar tanked (rendered with a special mixture that prevents penetration) and the installation of pumps which activate when the water table rises to a certain level.

The flood specialists at London and Kent Construction Ltd will assess your case and advise you on the best course of action. For a free quote, or to find out if we operate in your area, contact us.
