Richmond was founded with Henry VII's building of Richmond Palace in the 16th century. During the 18th century Richmond Bridge was completed and many Georgian terraces were built, particularly around Richmond Green and on Richmond Hill. As it continued to prosper and expand during the 19th century, luxurious housing was built on the streets that line Richmond Hill. These properties remain well preserved and many have listed building architectural or heritage status today. The former wharf area of Wandsworth river-front has been redeveloped and is now lined with new apartment blocks. Wandsworth Common, at the top of East Hill, is adjoined by an area known locally as "the Toast Rack" which takes its name from its toast rack shape created on a map, which has some of the most expensive Georgian townhouses in London.
Properties of any age, size or style can be exposed to the risks of damage from woodworm, rot and damp. These kinds of problems tend be more prevalent in older buildings, such as Georgian and Victorian properties or those that have been refurbished or repurposed during their lifetime. Unfortunately, the damage that can be caused is not always immediately obvious.
Flooding in the area is not something new, the River Wandle was recorded as early as 1903 bursting its banks across Wimbledon. Other notable incidents such as the heavy storms 2007 and 2014 caused surface water flooding as the sheer volume of intense rainfall cascaded down Wimbledon Hill overwhelming drainage systems. South West London remains vulnerable to surface water and sewer flooding from storm and heavy rainfall events. The large areas of impermeable surfacing (roads, roofs and pavements) and the legacy of Victorian drainage systems are not equipped to cope with intense rainfall that exacerbate the problem. Months after flood waters have retreated, damp may no longer be visible in a building. Yet moisture levels in some timbers within a property, can remain high enough (above about 20%) for dry rot to decay the wood.
