Damp proof your property

Damp proofing methods are treatments that stop damp from entering your building and causing damage. Without proper protection, dampness can lead to problems like discoloured walls and structural damage. Our services offer effective solutions to keep your property safe from these issues.

What Are the Causes of Damp?

Dampness is a frequent issue in households, often resulting in mould, structural harm, poor air quality, musty odours, and respiratory issues. Grasping the origins of damp is crucial for its proper prevention and management. Moreover, if your current damp proofing measures aren’t performing optimally, our local experts can swiftly conduct thorough damp surveys in every room of your home.

There are two main categories of dampness:

  • Penetrating Damp: This type of damp occurs when water ingress (entry) from outside the building occurs.
  • Condensation Damp: This type of damp arises from excess moisture in the air inside the property.

Here’s a closer look at the different causes of damp:

Penetrating Damp:

  • Leaks: Water infiltration through leaking pipes, roofs, gutters, or walls is a common cause of damp issues.

  • Rising Damp: This occurs when moisture ascends from the ground through the foundations and into the walls, particularly problematic in older buildings lacking a damp-proof course (DPC) or where the DPC is compromised.

  • Bridged DPC: A damp-proof course (DPC) acts as a barrier against rising moisture. When materials like soil come into contact with the wall, they can disrupt the DPC’s effectiveness.

  • Building Faults: Cracks in walls, gaps around windows and doors, and faulty pointing can all permit water ingress, contributing to damp problems.

Condensation Damp:

  • Poor Ventilation: Inadequate ventilation in homes traps moisture indoors, causing condensation on cold surfaces such as walls and windows, which in turn leads to dampness and mould growth. Everyday activities like showering, cooking, and drying clothes increase indoor moisture levels.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Hanging clothes to dry indoors, neglecting to use extractor fans in kitchens and bathrooms, and overcrowding a property with occupants can all contribute to condensation issues.
  • Lack of Heating: Cold walls are more prone to condensation. Consistently maintaining a low level of heat throughout the winter season helps mitigate the risk of condensation buildup.
