Reading, the county town of Berkshire has a wide variety of different property types. The town started to grow rapidly during the 19th century as a manufacturing centre, creating many jobs and railway services were also introduced at this time. The town continued to expand during the 20th century and many properties were being built. The centre of Reading mostly consists of terraced houses and semi-detached houses originally built to accommodate the factory workers. Towards the outskirts, Reading has range of small and large properties of different ages. Many properties have been modernised and refurbished over the recent years and many modern apartments have been built across the centre.

Further housing developments have increased the number of modern houses and hypermarkets in the outskirts of Reading. The Oracle, a major town-centre shopping centre in the heart of Reading is home to hundreds of different business ranging from retail shops, restaurants and cinemas.

 This area has a maritime climate, with generally moderate, but consistent rainfall throughout the year. Any excess moisture which may be absorbed through walls or floors into the fabric of buildings could eventually cause problems such as rising damp or wet and dry rot. Any property can be subject to property care issues and we at Rentokil understand the importance of a safe and healthy property. Whether it's residential or commercial, our team of experts are here to provide you with support to ensure a safe property.
