UK's Oldest Damp Proofing Company Joins Twistfix Scheme

The extensive network of Twistfix-registered contractors continues to grow. We are pleased to welcome Proten and DWC, two national remedial treatment companies providing a comprehensive array of damp proofing, timber preservation and masonry structural repair systems. Since registering, both companies have seen increased work-load after converting several of the leads received from Twistfix, including basement waterproofing contracts in Essex, wall tie replacement work in Leeds and damp proofing projects to houses in London.

Formerly known as Protim and with roots dating back to 1928, Proten Services have a long history of providing a range of specialist building services to both domestic and commercial clients. Originally dedicated to timber treatment, the highly experienced company has continued to grow and evolve, now providing the most modern solutions to a range of structural problems including rising damp treatment, damp proofing and radon remediation. All surveyors at the company are fully CSSW and CSRT qualified; teamed with these expert skills are many years of experience in the field. Industry-leaders Proten Services are:

  • The UK's oldest damp proofing and timber treatment specialists with links going back 85 years
  • Certified by the Radon Council
  • Members of the Property Care Association (PCA), formerly known as the British Wood Preserving and Damp Proofing Association.

DWC offer the same standard of quality and craftsmanship in their remedial work. From timber preservation and condensation control to cellar waterproofing systems and flood protection, the company offers total solutions to every conceivable problem within a structure. A dedicated contracts manager is assigned to each project the company undertake, allowing for easy communication between the client and a skilled team of technicians. As well as being affiliated with the Construction Line and Trust Mark schemes, DWC are members of many prestigious trade associations including:

  • British Structural Waterproofing Association
  • Property Care Association and the Wall Tie Installers Federation.
  • Radon Council
  • Wall Tie Installers Federation

Together, Proten and DWC work under the umbrella organisation UK Property Repair Group (UKPRG), providing services right across England and Wales. With a number of offices located in areas including London, Leeds and Birmingham, UKPRG continues to expand its operations through a process of acquisition, concentrating on organic growth via a focused, enthusiastic and intelligent approach to business. Part of the company's objective was to achieve an increase in the amount of preservation projects completed. Twistfix have aided the completion of this objective thanks to our close relationship with this group of companies, superior products like our remedial wall ties (patented by the Directors of Twistfix), and through leads generated through our Find a Contractor scheme.
