Watford originated as a string of houses located on the first dry ground above the marshy edges of the River Colne. It was the early 1800s, which saw the greatest and most rapid changes to the town and by the early 1900s Watford was an established industrial centre. The 19th century also saw a rapid expansion in housing as people moved to the town for work. Most of the streets in the town centre were laid out in the second half of the 19th century.

Homes of any age, size or style can be at risk of damage from woodworm, rot and damp. These kinds of problems tend be more noticeable in older properties, such as Georgian, Victorian and early 20 Century buildings or those that have been repurposed or refurbished over time. Unfortunately, the damage that can be caused is not always immediately obvious.
