The first step is to identify the source of the damp and understand the extent of the issue. From there, we can recommend steps to get your damp problem under control.

We can also advise on increased ventilation if this is the cause of your issues.

What is damp proofing?

Damp proofing refers to a number of measures that help to protect a structure against moisture ingress. Dampness will not only make a property feel colder and less comfortable, but it can also cause structural damage over time as components like wall ties and timer frames can be impacted by moisture. Damp proofing removes this risk and protects your home so you can enjoy peace of mind.

If you are dealing with rising damp from the outside of your home, this could indicate that you need a new damp proof course. This is a chemical treatment placed into the brickwork to create an impermeable barrier in your cavity wall. Another common method of damp proofing is basement tanking, where we coat the walls and floor of your basement or cellar with a waterproofing slurry. This cures to create a solid barrier that prevents moisture from penetrating damp getting into your basement and rising up interior walls.

  • Peeling wallpaper
  • Flaking paintwork

  • Warped doorways
  • Mould patches on walls and ceilings
