There are no easy-fix solutions for damp proofing. Pimlico properties with rising damp problems need to be treated properly. Rising damp often triggers other problems, which might include hygroscopic salt contamination that affects your wall plaster or timbers and floorboards that suffer from wood rotting fungi. There isn’t a magic damp proofing fix that can deal with any of these problems. Only choosing a thorough solution will give you value for money and a long-term solution.
Our damp proofing work starts when we arrange for a qualified surveyor to look at the damp and timber problems in your property. This assessment allows us to recommend the best solution for you and we’ll send our experienced staff to carry out the work professionally and efficiently. This will often include the removal of skirting timbers and wall plaster to a minimum height of 1.2m, before we inject a high-performance horizontal damp proof course to the base of the exposed walls. This is followed by re-plastering in accordance with our damp proofing specification.
Each of these stages form a complete damp proofing system and it is always recommended that they should be carried out by a member of the Property Care Association – like Tapco HomeDry. We are also members of TrustMark and the British Damage Management Association, and we offer our own long-term guarantee for all our damp proofing work.
