We are professional Japanese knotweed removal specialists.

Residential knotweed removal

Are you having mortgage issues because of Japanese knotweed? If you’re a homeowner, Japanese knotweed can have serious consequences for the valuation of your property. Knotweed grows easily through your walls, foundations, and utility supplies, meaning mortgage lenders often require evidence of a suitable treatment programme as a condition of lending if the weed is present on or near to a property.

We work regularly with homeowners across the country to secure their properties against knotweed growth. Residential knotweed removal forms a core of our business, meaning that we are capable of responding quickly and expertly to your case. Many mortgage lenders are reluctant to act if a property has a history of knotweed; our 10 Year Insurance Backed Guarantee provides the assurance they need that the premises are covered against potential regrowth.

REMOVAL OPTIONS

COMPLETE EXCAVATION & LICENSED LANDFILL DISPOSAL – OFF-SITE

A good example of this type of removal is when the discovery of Japanese knotweed halts garden projects and landscaping works. It can also be a planning condition that the knotweed is excavated and removed off-site.

As a consequence, deadlines can be threatened, works cannot be resumed and the owner may struggle to complete their projects until complete eradication has been achieved. In this case, immediate knotweed removal via physical excavation and licensed disposal of the controlled waste would be the most viable option.

Our experienced contractors are able to chase the knotweed roots down rather than excavating indiscriminately. This minimises the amount of clean soil removed from the site, and means that our excavation service is one of the most competitively priced on the market. We have effective measures in place to ensure all Duty of Care requirements are met under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990.

Clients are provided with Waste Transfer Notes for their records, providing you with written records and peace of mind.
