Damp WorkNobody has to suffer with damp. Call in the experts.

We can offer damp-proofing services to treat rising damp inside properties and prevent it coming back in future, creating a healthier, more comfortable environment. Damp is a problem affecting many properties in the UK – it can be destructive for the home and is also bad for your health.

Our team of property experts can begin the process with an initial damp survey and produce a report, before agreeing a schedule of works and providing a full quotation. We work with you from beginning to end, taking care of the entire damp treating and damp-proofing process.

You might have noticed some of the following signs, indicating that you have a damp problem:

  • Obvious damp patches on your walls
  • Mould or mildew on walls and flooring
  • A pungent, musty smell that won’t go away
  • Peeling or bubbling wallpaper/paint
  • Walls that feel damp to the touch

It isn’t normal to experience these problems and you don’t have to live with them. These signs could indicate that you have an issue with rising damp, which needs to be rectified by specialists.

Why is it important to treat damp?

Rising damp is a major issue for homes in the UK, causing damage and creating an unpleasant living environment.

These are some of the reasons why damp should be treated:

  • It’s better for your health. Homes with damp problems are more likely to trigger asthma attacks and other health problems.
  • You can live more comfortably. Damp can smell bad and look unpleasant. A damp-free home is a much better living environment.
  • Energy costs can be reduced. Damp-proofing a home improves insulation so you can reduce your reliance on central heating.

You may also notice condensation on walls from time to time – this can often be prevented with heating and ventilation, but if you think it is part of a bigger problem, ask us for a quote and we can assess the issue for you.

Damp-proofing and treating damp in your property

When we carry out damp work in your property, these are the steps we take to ensure we complete our work thoroughly:

  • We undertake a damp survey and produce a report
  • We agree a schedule of works so we can give an accurate quote
  • All internal plaster is removed to a height of approximately 1.2m, exposing the underlying masonry
  • An injectable damp course is installed and we re-render using sand and cement, with a waterproofing admixture. This prevents the residual moisture reaching decorative surfaces during drying, and stops hygroscopic salts coming through, as they would continue to attract moisture.
  • The render dries out over the course of a week, and we then return to re-plaster, fit skirting boards and complete any other works quoted for.

Render – tackling damp at its source

Rising damp will seep in from outside a property, getting into your internal walls. Prevention is better than a cure, and our sophisticated render systems can form a strong barrier, keeping damp out and keeping your property dry inside. We offer:
