Looking for damp proofing in Richmond upon Thames?
Damp proofing is the process of preventing moisture from entering and damaging a property by using waterproofing membranes, chemical damp proof courses and other specialist treatments. Damp can cause serious damage to your home over time and lead to costly repairs if left untreated, so it’s important to get any signs of damp identified as soon as possible.
Our damp proofing services include a survey to identify the cause of the problem, a full report, and then all remedial work to restore your property. This could include the installation of specialist damp proofing membranes, tanking and/or condensation control systems. Our work includes repair to existing damp proof courses, installing damp proof courses in new properties, and advising on the best course of action for basement conversions and extensions.
What is damp proofing?
Damp proofing is a range of treatments that can be used to protect your property from moisture. These treatments include installing damp-proof membranes and chemical damp-proof courses, as well as other specialist methods such as tanking and basement waterproofing. The type of treatment you’ll need will depend on the severity of damp in your home and the underlying cause. Our experienced surveyors can help identify this for you and recommend the best solution.
The most common treatment for damp is repairing or installing the damp proof course. This is a chemical treatment that will create a barrier to prevent moisture from getting into your house. We can also advise on the best ways to draw existing moisture out of your property and then address the cosmetic issues related to damp. If you have issues with moisture control in your home, we might advise adding more ventilation or investing in dehumidifiers.

How do you spot the signs of damp?
Learning to spot the signs of damp can help you to address the problem before it becomes more widespread and damaging. Damp often seems worse in the winter months because it’s colder, but learning to look out for the telltale signs of damp in the summer months can help you to stop the problem from becoming more widespread.
The most common signs that you may have a problem with damp include discoloured walls or wallpaper, black mould patches and condensation in rooms without proper ventilation. You may also notice that outside walls are cold to the touch and your property is difficult to keep warm, even with central heating. Other indicators include crumbling masonry, rotting window sills and warping floorboards.
