Soft strip out

We are the UK's largest soft strip out specialist

Strip out should be efficient, cost-effective, non-disruptive and above all, safe; it requires skill, experience and disciplined team-work.

Waste removal and recycling

Umberslade removes waste materials produced during strip out and internal demolition projects using its own fleet of skips.


Removed material is segregated and stacked in skip by type for efficient handling. We recycle over *97% of the materials we strip out including timber, ceramics, glass, plasterboard, ceiling tiles and hard core.

We ensure waste that cannot be recycled is disposed of in an environmentally-friendly and sustainable manner using audited and approved waste transfer stations across the UK.
