Damp proofing FAQs

Wall dampness is a relatively prevalent issue, however not all wall damp issues are the same, thus the right damp proofing can differ. You may only need to enhance the ventilation in the building and remove the mould from the wall to solve condensation issues. Fixing the source of water infiltration can treat penetrating damp, and constructing or repairing a damp proof course can frequently treat rising damp.

Depending on the cause, there are many approaches to address dampness. Our staff will utilise a range of solutions after conducting a survey to identify the issue, including: Damp proof courses, waterproof membranes, ventilation systems, timber repairs, and resin repairs. The source of the wet ultimately determines the damp proofing technique.

The source of the wet ultimately determines the damp proofing technique.

Given that damp occurs in so many distinct forms and that each one requires a specific treatment strategy, it is challenging to place a price on it. It may be possible to determine a guide price for fixing the damp problem if you can determine the sort of damp problem you have and the severity of the damp problem, subject to a survey to confirm.

There are a few causes of moist interior walls. Rising damp only affects the ground floor inside walls of a building, and it typically leaves a “tide mark” above the skirting board. The most frequent source of damp interior walls is condensation, which frequently manifests as black mould. Another reason for damp interior walls is penetrating damp, which can be identified by damp patches, cracked plaster, water stains on brickwork, and musty odours.
