What type of damp?
There are three different types - condensation, rising damp, and penetrating damp. Each of them has different causes and symptoms. Our team can determine which is affecting you and find the most cost effective solution.
Condensation is the most common damp problem. It occurs because moist air comes into contact with cold walls, leaving them wet. Over time this can lead to mould developing. The situation can occur for several reasons, including poor ventilation, fluctuating temperatures, and very cold walls in winter.
Rising damp occurs when the groundwater is absorbed up walls. It can be very serious, weakening the structure and causing instability. The issue happens when there is a lot of groundwater, particularly if there is a drainage problem. Homes need a damp proof course and/or a damp-proof membrane to protect them.
Penetrating damp is different because the water penetrates walls and ceilings horizontally. It typically occurs because of a structural flaw such as a crack in the wall or faulty guttering. Internal leaks can also cause the damp.
We provide a wide range of services to tackle damp. Firstly we can find the cause of the problem to ensure we know what we are dealing with. Following this, we set about resolving it. We can do construction work, plumbing, and also provide protective measures. In addition we can remove damp or mouldy plaster and replace it with fresh materials. We can finish off by decorating.
As you can see our service is comprehensive, meaning you only need to deal with us. This ensures you can expect professionalism at every stage as well as quality workmanship. As an additional benefit, we also work hard to maximise value for money.
