The restoration of a Derbyshire town house

Olympic Construction was contacted by the owner of a stone built town house in the Derbyshire town of Glossop who found the information on the Heritage and period properties page of our website. The reason for the original call being dampness affecting the internal elevation of the lounge.

On inspection it was discovered there were a number of defects which were presenting a risk of water ingress into the front elevation of the property, this most obvious one being the incorrect installation of the gutter and rainwater down pipe, this was a simple fix and was undertaken the flowing week.
