The National Waterproofing Group is made up of specialist contractors based around the country, offering coverage for all types of waterproofing and gas membrane installation services in their own areas.
The group was formed by the contractors with a view to offering national coverage, with the resources of a national waterproofing company, but with the service of a local company.
We work together to ensure each member maintains the high standards set out by the group.
Whether you’re looking for structural or basement waterproofing, Gas membrane installation, damp control or timber treatment services, our surveyors are highly qualified and our technicians are expertly trained.
The company was originally known as the PPS group (Property Preservation Systems) however only used our group for purchasing, training etc. as a group, to get better deals for ourselves as individuals that may not have been available to us before.
In 2019 we made the decision to offer the service out to the general public, with the same benefits. We offer the skill set, training, qualifications, accreditations and more that you’d expect from a national contractor. We offer the service, reliability, and personal touch that you’d expect from a local contactor.
We are unique in the industry in that we are closely networked, and finance generated through the group is reinvested back into the group, meaning we can use our collective resources to the benefit of our members.
In short, we offer the skill set, training, qualifications, accreditations and more that you’d expect from a national contractor. We offer the service, reliability, and personal touch that you’d expect from a local contractor.
