Damp Proofing Treatments – Penetrating Damp
Penetrating damp occurs at lower ground levels due to the high external levels and the Back to Earth nature. It can also occur where stone and brick walls face the weathering side in exposed locations. This makes the brick become porous allowing penetrating damp to occur at both high and low levels as cavities are often bridged with either debris or in some instances cavity insulation.
The work involves:
1. The removal of affected plasterwork
2. Lining the internal wall with Platon Plaster Membrane
3. Re-plastering onto the Membrane.
10 Year Guarantees are available for this work.
We can carry out a damp proofing survey of your property Free of Charge usually within 24 hours. We then advise you of the cause and the solutions to the problem. A Report , Quotation and Plan will be sent out which is often required by Lenders for Mortgage purposes.
Damp Proofing – Condensation and Mould Growth Treatments
Modern living with double glazing and well-sealed properties is in some cases now causing problems. High levels of moisture are held in the warm air during the daytime when the central heating is on, but during the night when the heating is off and temperatures drops ,condensation occurs. Condensation occurs, usually on outside walls and in areas with restricted air flow. Ventilation helps with this problem with either Air Bricks or electrical Humidity Extractor Fans which operate automatically .
