Pigeons and seagulls are particularly destructive on the exteriors of buildings. Their droppings are rich in nitric acid which can ruin sandstone, stucco, anodised metal surfaces, timber framing and other cladding materials; they also corrode roofs. Our bird proofing systems prevent pigeons and seagulls from settling on typical roosting places such as cornices, attics, ledges, window sills, etc. No matter how complicated the cladding structure is, we can make the proofing almost invisible. Bird fouling is also a problem because it can make pavements, yards and scaffolding extremely hazardous and could result in a serious accident.
Planning on renovating an old building or loft? Many architects have experienced unpleasant surprises after the building work is finished: pigeon ticks attack people when their usual hosts are missing.

Woodboring pests such as the House Longhorn Beetle, Woodworm, Powder-Post Beetle, Deathwatch Beetle and dry rot fungus can seriously reduce the value of a house or building. The damage can go as far as the complete destruction of supporting structures. Our experts are trained in all aspects of wood-protection: proactive, constructive or curative. Our specialised Property Care division provides treatments for wood damage caused by these pests as well as treatments to deal with damp, rot and cavity wall tie corrosion.
