Don't Panic!

Saturday 13th August 2011

The Knotweed Company (unlike some of our competitors) does not try to panic or scaremonger potential customers into signing expensive contracts with large upfront payments. So with a passing nod to Douglas Adam’s ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’, we are proud to say ‘Don’t Panic!’ to all our readers.

The horror stories that are so prevalent in the industry are (in the main) just that – stories. As in many stories, there is a kernel of truth in some of them. Yes, knotweed can grow through concrete; it can grow into houses and even out of roofs! I have seen this with my own eyes, but these are rare occurrences and are usually only when the building has been constructed over the knotweed. It is even rarer to find a structural issue when knotweed has been permitted to establish immediately adjacent to a building – not unknown, but very rare indeed.

If you have knotweed in your garden or in adjacent land to you, unless it’s already growing inside your house, our advice is ‘Don’t Panic!’

If you would like to talk to someone different, someone professional about your knotweed problem, please call us. Our quotations are free and without obligation.
