There are no quick fix solutions for damp proofing. Acton properties with rising damp must be treated properly. It will bring with it other problems like hygroscopic salt contamination that deposits in the wall plaster or wood rotting fungi to the flooring and joinery timbers that are in contact with the damp walls. No magic one day ‘damp proofing fix’ can possibly deal with any of these problems and if you don’t do it right you may as well save your money and not do it at all.
Our damp proofing work includes taking the skirting timbers off and removing the wall plaster to a minimum height of 1.2 metres. We then inject a high performance horizontal chemical (cream) damp roof course to the base of the walls and re-plaster strictly in accordance with our damp proofing specification. Each stage is an important part of the damp proofing system and should always be carried out by someone who is a member of the Property Care Association (PCA).
