Damp Proofing

What is damp proofing??

Damp proofing protects your walls from moisture. Our systems stop moisture from either rising or penetrating through the walls and floors to the interior of your property.

Persistent damp in your building can lead to more serious problems like fungal decay, wet rot, dry rot & mould. Dampness causes your timbers to rot, and your plaster and wall coverings deteriorate.

Damp can be a health hazard as well as a cosmetic and structural menace, so it’s worth fixing quickly before the issues escalate.

If you’re worried about damp problems in your building, one of our qualified surveyors can inspect it and diagnose the cause. We will suggest a course of action and walk you through the solution, with a clear idea of the price.

How we can help

It’s important to identify the source of the damp correctly, in order to treat it effectively and eradicate the problem. That’s why our surveyors carry out an initial thorough survey to diagnose the issues accurately. We’ll then provide you with a suggested course of action and a quote for the work.

The methods we use to treat damp include:

  • Injecting special-purpose chemicals into the affected walls: This creates a barrier between the damp ground and the dry structure above.
  • Repairing plaster: After the wall has been treated, it’s usually necessary to repair the plaster that has been damaged by damp. We offer a specialist replastering service for this issue.
  • Barrier systems (sometimes referred to as ‘Tanking’) using a quality membrane or cementitious system to stop moisture penetrating through walls.

Our Process

Survey

We start by conducting a thorough survey of the space you want to waterproof. There's usually a fee for our initial consultation, which is refundable on completion of works.

We collaborate with you to marry your objectives with our findings from the survey. We’ll discuss how you want to use the space when it’s finished and the best way of achieving your vision.

Design

Once we have the physical specifications, and your input on your requirements, we’ll design a system that works for you.

03

Approval

We’ll send you a specification, together with a report which explains the technical aspects. We’re happy to chat through this with you and make any changes you’ve identified.
