Rising damp is not just unsightly. It's potentially harmful to your health and can lead to the devastating decay of timber and the presence of mould. It also causes heat loss; a result of the conductivity of damp walls. In short, rising damp could be hurting your wallet and your health.
It's often possible to identify rising damp visually in the first instance. Typical signs include:
Damp - Identifying Rising Damp
A Damp Patch and Staining on the Wall up to 1 Metre above Ground Level
Wallpaper Peeling from the Wall

Rotting Skirting Boards
The plaster on affected walls will need to be removed. Then, a chemical damp proofing course must be applied. The walls must then be re-rendered with waterproof render before being plastered. Walls must be allowed to dry thoroughly before re-decoration takes place.
In addition to rectifying damp, our team is also skilled in the elimination of condensation. It's condensation that causes many instances of damp. Our assistance will help you to treat the problem at the source.
