Specialist tradesman operate in particular niche industries around the UK. Typically they provide specialist services such as timber preservation & damp proofing, waste removal (including hazardous waste), thermal insulation, sound proofing, basement conversions, demolition and disabled access or mobility services.
Timber is in many ways an ideal structural material, strong, beautiful and sustainable. however, wood-rotting fungi and the larvae of certain insects (aka woodworm) feed by breaking down wood cells and can eventually destroy the structural integrity of your home, leading to substantial costs and potential danger for inhabitants. New-build houses are constructed with timber preservation in mind. However, most of us live in houses that haven't been built recently and we inherit timber problems along with the property. The most common timber problems are woodworm, dry rot and wet rot. Timber preservation specialists can check for evidence of woodworm & rot, plus carry out repairs as required to make your structure safe.
Even with the availability of cheaper and more modern roofing materials, many still prefer traditional thatch roofing, as that unique look can't really be duplicated with any other roofing material, while at the same time is actually more economical and durable than many think. Thatch roofing companies can take care of the maintenance thatched roofs require require from time to time, plus of course their specially trained contractors and roofers can perform repairs and complete installations as required.
Soundproofing and acoustic insulation products offer solutions to home owners suffering from the common problem of domestic noise pollution and noisy neighbours. Nobody likes having their privacy constantly invaded by noise, but noise problems occur most commonly in flats (particularly those converted from large houses with no or minimal attention to soundproofing), or other buildings in noisy areas where acoustic insulation is poor.
Demolition is the tearing-down of buildings and other structures while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use. Demolition projects range from small buildings such as houses up to skyscrapers and bridges. House demolition is relatively straightforward with most being pulled down either manually or mechanically using hydraulic equipment, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Large buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball, rotational hydraulic shears, silenced rock-breakers and explosives.
Disabled and mobility service specialists provide all the contractor services required to make adaptations to buildings and improve access for wheelchair users and enhance areas used by people with disabilities or mobility problems. Often working with local authorities, NHS Trusts and other large organisations, these companies provide a wide range of products and services for enhanced living for people with mobility difficulties such as ramps, easy access doors, wet floor showers, low lip showers, level access showers, clos-o-mat WC installations, assisted baths and specialist kitchens. They also fit Hearing Loop Solutions into properties which are helpful for people who experience significant hearing difficulties and wear a hearing aid.
