Damp Proofing

DAMP can cause problems like dry and wet rot and mould which can seriously affect the structure of a property – and your health.

Flat roofIn many buildings the problem occurs because of condensation, rain getting in or rising damp.

Unwanted moisture enables the growth of various types of fungi. Moulds can grow on any surface and occur where there is moisture from structural problems like leaky roofs or high levels of humidity.

Airborne mould concentrations can cause respiratory problems.

If you think you have a damp problem it’s important to address the issue quickly. Signs of damp are usually – but not always – easy to spot.

Damp will cause plaster and paint to deteriorate and will loosen wallpaper. Stains from water, salts and mould will damage surfaces. In extreme cases, mortar or plaster may fall away from the affected wall.

Don’t let the damp come back

When rising damp occurs, water is absorbed into walls leaving deposits of hygroscopic salts, which attract moisture into the brickwork and plaster. 

Despite an effective damp proof course being installed, these salts can absorb moisture from the air giving the impression of continued dampness.
In order to avoid this problem, it is essential that the affected plaster be hacked off and the area is re-plastered with a rendering additive that will neutralise the salts.
