What can Japanese knotweed do to your Cathays home?

If left untreated, Japanese knotweed can quickly become an expensive problem. Here are a few reasons why it is important to identify and treat a knotweed infestation as early as possible:
  • During its peak growing season, knotweed can grow up to 10cm per day! It can also causing costly structural damage to your home by growing through any cracks in brickwork and concrete.
  • The deep-growing roots can also cause damage to your home’s foundations and block essential pipes.
  • Selling your home in Cathays may be extremely difficult if knotweed is present on your property. Lenders are very reluctant to approve mortgage applications when an infestation has been identified.
  • If you allow your knotweed to spread onto neighbouring properties – even by accident – you may be faced with legal action.
