Cheltenham & surrounding area

Cheltenham Spa is a regency town located on the edge of the Cotswolds. It has been a health spa town resort since the discovery of mineral springs in 1716. Regency town houses (many are listed buildings), with intricate balconies and stucco facades, line the historic Promenade, squares and terraces of Cheltenham. The town is famous for its Regency architecture and is said to be "the most complete regency town in England". Properties of any era, whatever their size can become susceptible to pests like woodworm or issues with condensation dampness. Our team of local, Cheltenham property care professional s will help keep your home in perfect condition.

The River Chelt is a tributary of the River Severn and flows from the western edge of the Cotswolds through and under the town of Cheltenham, before it enters the Severn at Wainlodes Hill. After serious flooding in the town during 2007, flood defence schemes were built to help protect areas such as Warden Hill and Hearne Brook. Damp resulting from flooding or flash floods can lead to structural damage and timber decay from penetrating damp or rising damp. Whilst problems such as dry rot may occur months afterwards, usually in voids or under floorboards which are out of sight. Our team of qualified damp specialists can resolve your damp or rot problems, keeping your property in good order.
