Taunton Deane is home to three towns, Taunton itself, bustling Wellington and the historic borough of Wiveliscombe. Taunton's name derives from 'Town on the River Tone' - Tone Town and can be traced back to Saxon times. The area is a mix of historic grade I and grade II listed buildings such as Gray's Almshouses on East Street and a Tudor Tavern (now a coffee shop) in Fore Street, along side Victorian buildings and modern properties built as part of the regeneration of areas such as Firepool, Tangier and the Cultural Quarter along the River Tone. Properties of any size or age can become susceptible to problems such as woodworm or condensation. 

Taunton and the surrounding area have a temperate climate, making it wetter and milder than most of the UK. Most rainfall occurs during autumn and winter due to the Atlantic depressions, swept in in westerly winds. Excess damp from heavy rains can pass through the fabric of a property leading to possible structural damage and timber decay from penetrating or rising damp. The topography of the area means that Taunton Deane lies in a 'bowl' surrounded by higher ground with a number of tributaries feeding into the River Tone, making the area vulnerable to flooding from the Somerset Levels and surrounding Moors. Flood defences offer protection to areas such as Tone Green, Frieze Hill, Ruishton, Ham and Tangier, but the urban waterfront area of Taunton remains a flood risk area. Problems such dry rot require a minimum amount of moisture to allow growth, but may occur in voids or under floorboards out of sight.
