The Lifecote™ Group Nationwide
“ A Lifetime Promise of Protection”
Lifecote™ The Company

Lifecote™ is the UK market leader with a network of 30 local service branches across the country, all with staff who are familiar with each locality, its needs and building traditions.

For damp proofing across the Country come to Lifecote™. We provide woodworm treatment, rising damp treatment, relief from wet and dry rot, osmosis treatment, damp course injection and structural water proofing. We also provide Clear External Water Proofing treatment and tanking. 

All our services are provided  Nationwide We offer free estimates and surveys in most situations. 

All our staff are extremely well trained and offer an efficient, friendly and above all professional service at all times. You will find that our staff are ready and willing to share their valuable experience and advice with our customers. From being established in 1979 all our work is provided with a 30 year insured guarantee.

Lifecote™ is a totally independent company
We are not tied to any of the Chemical manufactures and do not subscribe to their guarantee schemes. This is a very important point when considering a contractor. Many chemical companies insist their dealers use their chemicals solely and have to buy unnecessary chemicals to undertake unnecessary treatments. We simply buy our chemicals monthly from the best market deal offered at that time, thus can pass on considerable saving to our customers.

We do not use Dryzone tubes produced by Safeguard, Sovereign, or Biokillcrown, but simply a bulk alternative brought at half the price. This consequently enables Lifecote™ to beat any quote offered by another Damp Proofing contractor in the UK today.We do not use light weight plaster systems brought from the chemical companies, which are basically three times the price of a classical sand and cement mix, but unlike a sand and cement mix can be applied without specialist skills therefore allowing companies to employ semi-skilled tradesman rather than time served professionals.   

It may also be worth considering that if a chemical company approves a contractor there must be some financial bond between the two parties. This may cost you, the customer, a premium for those services. It should be noted that some chemical companies approve a contractor without checking the contractors work, merely to gain his business.

We remain wholly, and totally, independent and will remain so, and more importantly we offer a totally independent guarantee schemes. If a chemical company is underwriting its own contractor’s work how can they be independent? In the event of a claim clearly the chemical company will side with its dealers. This is a fact. In any event we strongly advise to request an independent quotation from Lifecote™ the market leader Nationwide. If you have already had a quotation why not simply call us and see what we can offer. Like for Like we will beat any quote by 15%. 


Working for surveyors, architects, property owners and managers, local authorities and contractors, the company has wide ranging experience in the repair of housing both privately owned and public sector, commercial and public buildings, as well as churches, including many listed properties. Much of our work on owner occupied housing is the result of recommendation by surveyors and mortgage lenders.

Guaranteed Service

Generally our treatments carry a long term Guarantee that is assignable in the event of a change of ownership. Over the years we have issued well over 20,000 and Lifecote™ is one of the few companies whose trading history exceeds the terms of its guarantees.
