Domestic claims have risen dramatically in recent years and never more noticeable than when regional/national flooding occurs. In the Cumbrian floods of 2009 the insurance industry paid out an estimated £175m. Incredibly this figure was almost doubled to around £325m in 2015/16 with some 5000 households estimated to have been affected.
Heightvale’s skills in both specialist drying and subsequent building refurbishment were much sought after in both of these regional disasters and a testament as much to our resolution as to our skills is that from minor claim to major complex loss we were not found wanting.
By continued expansion and critically controlled growth aligned to highly skilled and well trained staff and state of the art equipment, Heightvale has rightly taken its place as a best-in-class building services provider.
