Sovereign approved

Sovereign LogoHere at Troughtons Builders we are Sovereign approved contractors. This means that we are able to carry out damp proofing, tanking, and timber treatment work with insurance backed guarantees to give you extra peace of mind.

We can provide damp proofing works, chemical injection, tanking systems, timber preservation, wet and dry rot removal, and structural assessments; and all to the highest Sovereign approved standards.

As a Sovereign approved contractor we use a range of the highest quality damp proofing products for installing a damp proof course in masonry walls. We also offer a surface applied damp proof membrane for floors, and we make good use of Sovereign’s most popular damp proofing product, Injection Cream, which is a new development in damp proofing that is much easier to install than traditional techniques.

All of the Sovereign damp proofing products for masonry that we use in our work are independently tested and approved by the BBA (British Board of Agrément).

If you are purchasing a house we can also provide a damp proof report to ensure you are fully in the picture and there are no post-purchase surprises.

  • Victorian terraced house

    We are delighted with our Victorian terraced house after a complete renovation by THI. It was a major job as the house had been neglected for many years, but the project was very well managed with minimum stress for us. It was carried out by a skilled workforce who were always polite and cheerful. Neighbours have commented on their considerate approach in minimising disruption to adjoining properties. We benefited greatly from the expert knowledge and advice of Jim and Paul, who were enthusiastic and careful to get things right, while keeping within budget. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending THI for any home improvements.
