Company info

Who We Are:

Sterling Timber and Damp has been trading since the mid 1970’s and in that time has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in the remedial and restoration processes.

Our Services:

  • Rising Damp - Rising damp (or Salt Damp) is something that affects most older buildings to some degree or another, potentially leading to major structural problems
  • Condensation - We provide positive ventilation solutions to condensation and damp problems. We only supply and fit the best systems on the market
  • Woodworm Treatment - Woodworm is more than just one problem; the term referring to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle. They invade and consume wood
  • Dry Rot - Particularly in older buildings, fungal rotting can be a huge problem. There are many variations, but all stem from the same source
  • Rendering - We provide both exterior and interior rendering services. Exterior rendering is used to reduce the amount of moisture that gets through to the masonry
  • Listed Buildings - We provide services relating to Listed Buildings including maintenance and preservation. Each building requires individual assessing and we can offer assistance and advice.

Treatment for rising damp

Verified Review

It was really refreshing to have work carried out by Jim. Very knowledgeable , considerate and tidy worker. My house is Georgian so was not an easy fix given the lack of damp course. Jim has done a great job and would highly recommend. Thank you.
