Weymouth & surrounding area

Weymouth is situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast. Overtime the villages of Upwey, Broadwey, Preston, Wyke Regis, Chickerell, Southill, Radipole and Littlemoor have been absorbed into the built-up area. Weymouth's esplanade is a collection of Georgian terraces, forming a long, continuous arc of buildings which face Weymouth Bay. Many were built out of Portland Stone, the famous stone of the nearby Portland's quarries and were constructed in the Georgian and Regency periods between 1770 and 1855 but have since been converted into apartments, shops, hotels and guest houses. Properties from any era and of any size can become susceptible to problems such as woodworm, which may go unnoticed for many years until the adult beetles emerge from the timber. Our team of local, Dorset property care professionals will help keep your home in perfect condition.

Weymouth is built on is very low-lying sand and clay with large areas below sea level, making the eastern areas of the town more susceptible to flooding during extreme low pressure storms. This has led in recent years to a sea wall being built around Weymouth Harbour and along the coast road in Preston. Excess damp from flooding or prolonged heavy rains can get into the structure of a property leading damage and timber decay from penetrating or rising damp. Problems such as dry rot can occur months after the water levels have returned to normal, in voids or under floorboards which are out of everyday sight. Our team of local, qualified damp specialists can resolve damp or rot problems, keeping your property in good order.
