Rising damp is one of the most serious yet misunderstood damp problems that affects properties across the UK.
We will help you understand what causes rising damp and how to identify the tell-tale signs that appear on ground floor walls, skirting boards, paint, wallpaper and masonry.
Treating true cases of rising damp will often involve installing a remedial chemical damp proof course, and the earlier this can be performed the more likely you are to avoid creating an unpleasant and damp environment in your home.
Rain penetration into masonry (penetrating damp) can occur in buildings of all ages. At its most obvious, it penetrates right through the wall and is visible as a damp patch on the internal wall – often causing discoloration and peeling / flaking of paintwork or wallpaper. However, rainwater penetration can be damaging to a property, even if it does not penetrate all the way through a wall. For example, moss growth, increased heat loss, and frost damage can be caused by rain penetration into masonry.
Rain penetration is not a problem that is restricted to single-skin walls. Poorly installed wall-ties or cavity wall insulation can provide a pathway for rain penetration to track through cavity walls. we have a large range of solutions to suit your personnel needs
