Specialists in heritage homes and significant buildings

For some time I looked after a stock of old buildings in South Australia for a large not for profit organisation. We were interested in preserving the buildings in the most effective and economical manner.

We used Tech-Dry’s solutions on numerous buildings and were always happy with the result and the cost-effectiveness of the work. 20 years later, I am not aware of a single failure of their treatment in the buildings.

I can thoroughly recommend an assessment by Tech-Dry as a starting point in deciding what to do about rising damp/salt damp or even falling damp from failed roof plumbing etc.  The company is experienced and knowledgeable and we always found the staff reliable and good to deal with.
