Battersea is a largely residential inner-city district of south London in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It has Battersea Park, one of southwest London’s main parks, and is on the south side of the River Thames, 2.9 miles (4.8 km) south-west of Charing Cross.
Properties in Battersea that have rising damp or Dry Rot must be treated with the proper care and attention. Rising damp is often the cause of other problems like Dry Rot (Serpula lacrymans), hygroscopic salt contamination that damages wall plaster, and other wood-rotting fungi that grows on flooring and joinery timbers that have been touching the damp walls. No quick fix can deal with these problems, so it makes sense to do things properly so that you don’t have to pay out again in the future.
At Tapco HomeDry, we carry out damp proofing in Battersea, and our work includes removing the skirting timbers and taking off the wall plaster to a minimum height of 1.2m. Injecting a high performance horizontal chemical damp roof course to the base of the walls, and re-plastering to a tight specification means you can be confident we’ll do a thorough job. Each of these stages is an important part of the damp proofing solutions and should always be carried out by a contractor that is a member of the Property Care Association (PCA).
