Rising damp can cause awful problems in your home or office, including peeling wallpaper, damp spots, mould and crumbling plaster, and if untreated, it can cost a fortune to put right. But a good damp course can prevent damp from taking over your home.
Damp proofing is a layer of water-resistant material, such as plastic membrane or slate, that’s in the walls of your property and prevents damp from rising up your walls. Without it, moisture can rise up the walls via capillary action.
Most buildings nowadays will have a damp proof course, but over time, your damp proofing could become damaged and need action to correct it, before your building becomes susceptible to damp.
We can visit your home or premises to look at your existing damp proofing and then give you a fixed price for any work needed, along with the time it will take.
We can then inject a chemical or gel into your walls to either add a new damp proofing course or repair the old one, ensuring your home is safe from damp for years to come.
Just get in touch and we’ll come out to see you and arrange your damp proofing.
