What Is Damp Proofing And What Are Some Of The Many Benefits?

Damp proofing is an application that prevents the passing of moisture or water into interior spaces. Damp proofing is a great way to ensure you keep your home in good working order and keep excess bacteria and mildew at bay. These issues are triggers for people with compromised immune systems, and those suffering from asthma and other respiratory issues.
Proper damp proofing will ensure your lovely painted walls or wallpaper is protected against damage for decades to come. Unless you have children with creative minds and a case full of crayons, well then we cannot help you. There’s no reason to accept anything other than the best.

Types of Damp

  • Lateral Damp
  • Rising Damp
  • Penetrating Damp
  • Condensation

The 2 main types of damp are ‘Rising Damp’ and ‘Lateral Damp’.

What Is Rising Damp?

Rising Damp occurs when groundwater rises up through walls, floors and masonry via capillary action. The moisture will continue to rise until it reaches a height where, unless no evaporation is possible, gravity takes over and pulls it down again.

What Is Lateral Damp?

Lateral Damp is caused by penetrating moisture. This can happen when the external ground level is higher than the building so moisture is able to penetrate through the walls. Penetrating damp is usually classed as any kind of liquid that makes its way through the interior of the building from the outside. It can also be caused by missing roof tiles, overflowing gutters, wind driven rain, poorly maintained walls, leaking pipes, and other structural problems.​

The only way to effectively and permanently treat rising damp is to remove the contaminated plaster, install a chemical damp proof course and re plaster the wall using a waterproof salt retardant plaster render system. Our highly experienced plastering crew are able to blend the new plaster very closely with the existing finishes. Workmanship and materials are guaranteed for 5-10 years depending on customer requirements.

Signs Of Damp

It’s unfortunate that damp problems are one of the most recurrent problems affecting property structures. Water ingress solutions should always start at the foundation phase of construction. However, that doesn’t mean that you must tear your building down if you start noticing rising damp.

There are damp proofing and moisture control treatments that you can install to prevent damp problems from damaging your property. Whenever damp proofing isn’t adequately administered, your floors and walls experience very little protection. This inevitably leads to mould, damp patches, flaking paint and unpleasant smells. It can also lead to rotten skirtings, musty stains, respiratory problems, insect nests among other problems. Avoid this from happening by employing experts who are experienced in applying damp proofing solutions.

The Health Risks Of Mould And Damp

It pays to invest in proper damp proofing for more reasons than merely the value of your property. Your family or employees’ health could be in jeopardy. Protect them against the health risks and devastation that damp brings. Keep in mind that damp is not only a consequence of poor or nil damp proofing. It also occurs due to condensation, ground water and structural defects, such as poor ventilation and even faulty pipes. Rising damp can pose a big health problem to your building’s occupants.
