The Sussex coast is a varied mix of coastal communities and lively cities set alongside rural towns. Crawley developed slowly as a market town from the 13th century, serving the surrounding villages in the Weald; its location on the main road from London to Brighton brought a passing trade, encouraging the development of coaching inns. It was connected to London by the railway in 1841. There was a major expansion in house building in the late 19th century.  By the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 Crawley had grown into a small but prosperous town, serving a wide rural area and those passing through on the A23 London–Brighton road. The town is full of Georgian and Victorian architecture. Crawley’s building materials reflect its geology, of flint on and near the South Downs and sandstone in the Weald. There are 13 residential neighbourhoods, each with a variety of housing types: terraced, semi-detached and detached houses, low-rise flats and bungalows.

The climate of coastal Sussex is strongly influenced by the sea, which, because of its tendency to warm up slower than land, results in cooler temperatures than inland in the summer. Rainfall during the summer months is mainly from thunderstorms; from January to March heavier rainfall is due to prevailing south-westerly frontal systems drawn in from the Atlantic. If excess moisture from this climate is eventually absorbed through the walls or floors of a property into the fabric of the building, this can lead to timber decay through rising damp or rot problems. Our technicians and surveyors have a wealth of experience and knowledge in property care, dealing with issues of structural damage that can be caused by woodworm, wet or dry rot and damp problems on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on exceeding our client’s expectations and on making sure that our customers receive the best advice and treatments in the business.
