If you know you need to sort out a rising damp problem, but you’re not sure where to start, call us at Tapco HomeDry. For professional damp proofing in Little Venice and the surrounding area, we can offer a complete service that helps to take care of damp for good.
We always urge our customers not to opt for a “quick fix” solution. Those repairs often cover a cosmetic repair but don’t sort out the root of the problem or look for things like wall plaster that has hygroscopic salt contamination or wood-rotting fungi which is often found alongside rising damp. We understand that treating rising damp properly requires a full assessment of the problem and a structured solution that deals with all the associated difficulties. Our approach is to do things properly first time round, so you can be confident that the problem is solved.
We begin by sending a qualified damp and timber surveyor to your home to establish exactly what is happening with your rising damp. When we start work, we use a high performance chemical damp proof course which is injected to the base of walls that we have pre-prepared by removing skirting timbers and stripping back the wall plaster. Once the damp course is applied, we re-plaster your walls using skilled plasterers so that the walls are left in a good state for re-decoration.
