Find a Damp Proofing Contractor near You: Fix Condensation and Water Penetration Problems in Your Home

 

Do I Need a Damp Proofing Specialist?

If you think that your home is affected by water penetration or condensation problems, it’s important not to delay calling a damp proofing specialist. Damp problems, like mould, woodworms and dry or wet rot, can cause significant damage to your property and end up costing you a significant drop in the value of your home.

Damp problems and condensation issues are common in older builds and period homes. Such issues can occur in any property, but older builds are particularly prone to water penetration problems as they may have been constructed without a damp proof membrane.

Don’t put off getting your property assessed by an expert; if you think your house has damp, act quickly to avoid health problems or a loss in sale profit for your property. Every property must have a form of moisture control applied to the building's walls and floors, which can prevent moisture from passing into interior spaces.  

What Does a Damp Proofing Specialist Do?

Damp proofing your building is not a “Do It Yourself” project. To damp proof a house you need expert knowledge, industrial materials and a proper understanding of the building’s structure. Repairing or installing a damp proof course is more tricky than it may seem and includes the following:

  • Sourcing materials: Specialist materials must be acquired and installed to prevent damp from rising through the fabric of your walls. A preventive damp proof course in the form of a slate barrier is fitted into the base of the walls, so it’s important to select a knowledgeable and trusted local contractor to ensure the job is efficiently finished.
  • Closing cracks and holes: Most often special types of resin need to be injected into targeted points of the building to close up cracks and holes that have been created. This requires both the knowledge and skills of an expert damp proof specialist.
