Damp Proofing

Damp proofing, or a Damp-Proof in construction, is a type of moisture control applied to building walls and floors to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces. Dampness problems are among the most frequent problems encountered in residences.

Intensive Surveys 

As damp proofing experts across Manchester, Sheffield and the High Peak, we offer fully intensive surveys and reports by our certified surveyor in remedial treatments, who holds the nationally recognised CSRT Qualification. As such we specialise in the following:

Condensation Control

Rising Damp can develop within walls due to the lack of an effective damp proof course or the bridging of a damp proof course during earlier construction or renovation.

There are many ways in which rising damp may be found in a property. Rising damp may be found during a Building Survey, by tests carried out to the base of the damp walls. However in more severe cases where damp has been left untreated for prolonged periods of time, visible damp patches may appear, along with hygroscopic salts on the surface of the walls.

Effective damp proofing treatment requires removal of the wall plaster to approximately one metre or higher (depending on the salts within the masonry and several other factors). In addition to this, installation of a new damp proof course within the damp walls will help to provide protection for the property.

Get it done right

Damp proofing course requires two key elements. It is important to get the damp proof course right the first time to avoid worsening the situation and additional costs and reinstallation later.
