Gloucester rests on the eastern bank of the River Severn, sheltered by the Cotswolds to the east, with the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills rising to the west and north of the Cathedral city. The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal runs from Gloucester's docks to the Severn Estuary, allowing larger ships to reach the docks. Gloucester’s location does leave it vulnerable to river and tidal flooding, as was seen in 2007 when hundreds of homes were flooded, and the entire city was without piped water for 17 days. Excess damp from flooding can lead to structural damage and timber decay from penetrating damp or rising damp. Whilst problems such as dry rot can occur months afterwards, in voids or under floorboards which are out of sight. Our team of qualified damp specialists can resolve your damp problems, keeping your property in good order.
Gloucester was founded in AD 97 by the Romans. Some medieval and Tudor period gabled and half-timbered houses survive from earlier periods of Gloucester's history. The New Inn, for example, is Grade I listed and is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in the UK. Gloucester’s historic Victorian docks are the most inland port in Britain. The wharfs, warehouses and the docks have recently undergone refurbishment; some now house the Gloucester Waterways Museum, while others were converted into residential flats, shops and bars. Buildings from any era, whatever their size can become susceptible to pests like woodworm or issues with condensation dampness. Our team of local Gloucester based, property care professionals will help keep your property in perfect condition.
