DAMP TREATMENT

PENETRATING DAMP


Penetrating damp normally affects older buildings, however it can effect any home in need of repair. Often misdiagnosed, it can cause excessive damage if left untreated.

One of our fully-qualified, specialist surveyors can carry out a full damp survey and inspection for you to identify the type of damp present and recommend a course of treatment.

What causes

penetrating damp?


When the rendering on a building starts to crack – or the roof pointing stops doing its job so well – rainwater can easily find its way into the fabric of the building. And this starts to cause damage. Defective guttering and downpipes make it easier for rainwater to enter a building too, as do roof problems and leaky plumbing.

Signs of penetrating damp include:

  • a musty smell
  • damage to building masonry – caused by frost
  • excess heat loss
  • unattractive damp patches on the walls – black mould and/or moss growth.

HOW WE TREAT

PENETRATING DAMP?


To keep your home in a good state of repair, you must keep the rendering, brickwork, roof pointing & tiles, leadwork, guttering & downpipes in good condition to protect a building from penetrating damp.

If you'd like to find out more about treating penetrating damp, or identifying the type of damp present in your property please feel free to contact us for a chat or go straight ahead and book a survey today.
