Formerly part of the BWPDA? (British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association), the Property Care Association is the trade body for the structural and basement waterproofing, wood preservation, damp proofing, wall tie replacement and structural maintenance industries in the UK.
Brick-Tie Preservation are proud to be Property Care Association approved. Gaining membership of PCA involves a strict vetting procedure, regular quality audits and acceptance of the PCA’s code or conduct and ethics. Insurance and Health & Safety standards have to be met too. Only committed and qualified companies gain membership. The Property Care Association also supplies essential industry recognised and on-going training for our staff, on rising damp, condensation control, woodworm treatment, basement waterproofing and dry rot control.
The Property Care Association logo is always worth looking for, when searching for a specialist in damp, dry rot, wall ties or waterproofing company. Without it, there is no way of knowing if the specialists’ capability, competence, insurance and qualifications, have been independently vetted – without the logo anyone can call themselves a specialist company; even if they have never passed any exams or had any training at all.
The PCA runs annual awards for excellence in the industry. We are very proud that for the third time, we have won the training and personal development award for our BT Preservation team. We are the Property Care Association contractor of the year 2014 Check-out the Property Care Association web site for further details We are the Property Care Association approved members for clients in Leeds, Bradford, York, Wakefield, Harrogate and Sheffield too.
