Based in Hertfordshire, Eco Tiffin provides services to London and the Home-counties. We are WHICH Trusted Trader approved Members in partnership with Hertfordshire Trading Standards and active members of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) and, therefore, Trust Mark approved. Our years of experience have been passed down through the generations giving us a wealth of knowledge, allowing us to assist our clients best. Over the decades, we have carried out hundreds of surveys and projects on all types of properties. These have ranged from the standard domestic houses to Victorian Terraces, quaint cottages, listed properties, commercial buildings, churches and even stately homes.
We specialise in damp and defects and old and listed properties, retrofitting and thermal surveys.
Our client called us at the start of the year after seeing our advert in the Listed Property Magazine. She said her house was cold and she wanted it looked at to see what could be done. The house is a large detached grade II listed building built circa 1834.
Robert carried out his in-depth condition and damp survey on the property along with a thermal survey to see where the property was losing heat. It was obvious from the Thermograms where the keys areas were and that the property was thermally inefficient both in the ground floor and the roof. The condition survey also revealed that the roof was structurally unsound.
The main aspects of work that needed to be carried out were firstly a complete roof renovation, secondly insulation energy-saving work and thirdly general repairs including joinery and brickwork.
