About RLH Developments Limited

Successful and trusted

RLH Developments was established in 1980 and has grown to a successful and trusted contractor, working for local authorities, housing associations, surveyors, landlords, estate agents, building contractors and private clients across the south east.

Based in Croydon, we provide timber and damp-proofing treatment and restoration across Central and South London, and working throughout Surrey, Sussex and Kent. For more information on the areas we cover, please refer to our contact us page. However, if you fall outside this area, please don’t hesitate to get in touch as we may still be able to help you.

RLH Developments is a family-run firm, with a commitment to excellence in everything we do. We have a particular focus on health and safety and training – all of our surveyors and operatives receive regular, scheduled health and safety briefings in all aspects of the work we cover and are trained to the highest industry standards.

Trusted by Local Authorities and Housing Associations

We work for the public housing sector - employed by local authorities and housing associations - for main contractors and building clients, and for private homeowners. We undertake surveys and provide a professional, comprehensive report and estimate based on our own pricing structure or a pre-agreed schedule of rates. For specific information on the services we provide for clients, please refer to our local authorities page, our building contractors page and our private clients page.

Our testimonials from happy householders confirm that we adhere to the highest standards of workmanship in their homes and all our staff are courteous and considerate at all times.

We take pride in our work

We pride ourselves on excellent working relationships with our clients and with our courtesy and consideration to those affected by our works. We have completed many successful contracts and continue to gain new clients due to our staffs’ professionalism and attention to detail.

In particular, we understand and consider the needs and concerns of householders - whether we are working directly for them or for landlords or housing associations - while undertaking disruptive and difficult work in their homes. We are always sensitive to the fact we are working in people’s homes and work carefully to minimise disruption while building works are going ahead.

A Croydon building preservation company has been crowned Contractor of the Year. RLH Developments were presented with the national award from the UK trade body the Property Care Association (PCA), at an event held at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.
