Damp Proofing

Rising damp is problem that can potentially affect any building, and can appear on both internal and external walls. Usually rising damp is found in older homes where the damp proof course has been damaged. Damp problems are one of the most frequent problems encountered in homes.

Ways to identify Rising Damp

  • arrowBlack mould on walls
  • arrowDamp patches on external walls
  • arrowMoss/algae growth on external walls
  • arrowWater stains on walls
  • arrowDampness on internal walls of the property
  • arrowBroken plaster on internal walls

If your internal plasterwork is exposed to damp then eventually the plaster will break and will need to be replaced. In order to do this, the existingt plaster will need to be removed and a new sand and cement render applied together with the appropriate waterproofing additive. Once this has been completed the walls can then be skimmed with the new plaster.
