Having damp in your property can be a real problem if not sorted out immediately. Our years of experience providing damp proofing solutions in all types of properties are to the highest of standards.


Damp proofing is the generic term typically used to describe the installation of preventative measures to stop damp problems such as RISING DAMP, PENETRATING DAMP, CONDENSATION and DRY ROT. Damp walls can damage fixtures and fittings in your property, leave unsightly marks on paint and wallpaper and cause structural damage to timber and masonry. Damp problems that are not treated have the potential to cause more serious conditions such as wet rot in the future.

Identify damp problems:

RISING DAMP. Is a well known but relatively rare cause of damp problem, you will spot signs such as tide marks up to a meter from the ground floor of your property, white salt marks and walls that will be damp to touch.

CONDENSATION. Is the most common cause of damp and often the most simple to treat. The most common signs of condensation are excess moisture on and around your windows and black mould growing on walls and ceilings. Almost all condensation problems can be rectified by improving ventilation.

PENETRATING DAMP. Is often caused by building maintenance issues such as leaks, cracks, faulty roofing and overflowing drains. Penetrating damp are particularly thin or porous. If your property is exposed to wind driven rain this also increases the chances of water ingress through penetrating damp. The most common sign of penetrating damp are damp patches on walls that are usually visible further up the wall particularly where the wall meets the ceiling. You may also have an external building fault such as damaged render that allows rainwater to penetrate and enter your home. With penetrating damp, you need to start by resolving the source of damp.
