Japanese Knotweed Removal Cardiff
Japanese Knotweed has an incredibly robust plant structure, allowing it to grow in almost any environment. This is largely why the removal of Japanese Knotweed is so difficult.
With its ability to tolerate low temperatures, it can rapidly spread through any gaps in structures like bricks or concrete. By choosing a trusted Japanese Knotweed removal specialist in Cardiff, you can ensure your infestation is removed permanently, and avoid the cost of knotweed damage in future.
Japanese Knotweed Removal Cost in Cardiff
There is no one fixed Japanese Knotweed removal cost, as this depends on the treatment plan and extent of your infestation.
Our careful and methodical treatment of Japanese knotweed using appropriate chemicals and dosages over time allow for successful control of the Japanese Knotweed, as well as prevent it from spreading. We offer a 100% guarantee that our herbicide treatment programmes will prevent any future above ground growth. However, this treatment method does not guarantee that the underground rhizomes will be removed.
Excavation involves digging up the entire root system, and is the only method which allows Japanese knotweed to be removed fully and permanently. It’s important for works to be carried out by experts such as TPK Knotweed, to ensure complete removal, as a minute piece of rhizome has the ability to regrow and lead to spreading.
Properties with Japanese Knotweed In Cardiff
Homeowners in Cardiff with Japanese knotweed on their premises can struggle to sell their properties. Both mortgage lenders and potential buyers are put off by identified cases. This also applies to the buying and selling of properties for commercial use.
In addition to the repair costs associated with knotweed damage, property owners can be fined up to £2,500 if knotweed spreads from their premises to those of a neighbour. It is not illegal to have knotweed on your land, but it is illegal to allow it to spread.
The best way to avoid financial and legal costs is to contract a licensed Japanese knotweed removal specialist. A PCA-accredited expert with a 10-year Insurance-Backed Guarantee is a reliable and effective way of treating your knotweed and eliminating the problem. For cases in and around the Cardiff area, TP Knotweed can help.
