There are two types of underfloor heating. It can be either a system that pumps warm water through piping under the floor (a ‘wet’ system) or electric coils placed under the floor (a ‘dry’ system). Taking advantage of the basic principle that heat rises, warmth from under the floor is radiated into the room.
Underfloor heating is the oldest form of central heating, the Romans used a type called hypocausts, which heated buildings and baths. Today’s form is becoming increasingly popular in the UK due to its economic running costs and greater level of comfort than traditional radiator systems.

The main reason for Rendering is aesthetic but it helps helps improve the waterproofing and fire rating of a building. In fact, in most Mediterranean countries and elsewhere in Europe, a brick structure is not considered complete until it is rendered. We have a wide range of colours available for standard white through to extravagant colours such as Ocre Rose, Graphite and Earth Red.
Rising damp can mean an unwelcome rise in costs and an undoing of all your hard work. We can supply you with the damp-proofing products to make damp a problem you won't have to worry about. A damp-proof course (DPC) is a horizontal barrier in a wall designed to quash the threat of moisture rising through the structure. For all their strengths, unfortunately, materials such as brick, stone and mortar are porous.
This means that without a DPC in place, there is a risk of damp rising, ruining decorations and, more worryingly, breaking down internal plaster and compromising the structure of a wall.
We can supply you with the products you need to ensure that your walls are sealed and secure, contact us today to discuss how we can provide you with inexpensive damp-proofing solutions.
