A large number of property owners across the UK deal with damp problems every year, but not to worry we are here to help.
Damp is caused by the build-up of excess moisture within a building, from either internal condensation or intrusion from the exterior of the property. Damp problems can also appear rapidly following a heavy downpour or it can slowly due to leaky guttering, damaged roof tiles or lead flashing. The only time you may become aware of a damp problem is when you find a damp patch on your wall – often in the plaster.
Our damp proofing specialists will assess and correctly diagnose the extent and type of dampness then provide recommendations on specific damp proof treatments for the most effective ways to treat your specific damp problem.

Rising damp occurs as water rises up mortar & masonry from the ground, or through solid floors if the damp proof membrane is damaged. Our rising damp treatments have a 30-year guarantee.
Penetrating Damp can occur if water enters a property via damaged rainwater goods, leaking pipes, cracked render, or earth retaining walls from the outside of the building.
Condensation is the consequence of high levels of humid air being trapped within a building. This causes damp patches on walls & water droplets on windows, which can lead to mould.
