Training and staff development at 100%

23rd September 2013

Waterproofing, damp proofing and timber treatment training

Maintaining our 100% qualification record for our staff


Training and staff development is high on our agenda as it has a direct effect on the quality of our damp and waterproofing work.

Waterproofing isn’t just about applying a waterproof or cavity drain material to a surface; it’s also about the effects this will have on the substrate, surrounding materials and environment. As many cellars have built in timbers such as lintels and floor joists (at ground floor level) it is important to consider these elements to ensure durability long after the waterproofing works have been completed.

As our technicians are on the front line we feel it is important that they are aware of the issues at hand.

Our newest recruit Peter, has been with the company now for 12 months and after his induction, a program of development, learning and achievements were agreed. Peter’s well on his way to becoming an essential team member, with skills not only in waterproofing but also in damp proofing and all aspects of timber treatment too.

Here’s Peter Linsell showing off his latest NVQ certificate in damp proofing, woodworm and rot treatment. This is added to his existing NVQ qualifications for bricklaying.


He is also proficient in Cintec Tie installation and Helifix remedial wall tie installation too.

Well done Peter!
