Professional Damp Proofing
As your local damp proofing specialists, we have much to offer our Edgware customers. Here is a few of our more popular services…
We offer a variety of damp proofing techniques to our customers in the Edgware area. To decide which is likely to be most effective, we perform full damp surveys to assess the nature and extent of the problem. From here, our damp proofing specialists can devise an appropriate plan to tackle the damp and rot in your property.
Rising damp is commonly found in older buildings in and around Edgware. Caused by capillary action, ground water is drawn up through porous building materials, where it seeps through the plaster causing damage to the walls. We perform Damp Proof Course (DPC) injections to remedy the situation and prevent the condition from reoccurring. For peace of mind, all rising damp work carried out by Olympic Preservation Ltd is covered by our 20 year guarantee.
Wet Rot and Dry Rot
If our damp surveys bring up evidence of wet rot and dry rot, it is essential that we dispose of them at once. Both of these fungal conditions prove highly damaging to your property, affecting masonry, woodwork, and plaster. We have several treatments available to eradicate the rot and disinfect the area to prevent future growth and all our work is covered by a 10 year guarantee.
There are several types of wood-boring beetle resident in the UK that fall under the generic term of woodworm. Known to lay their eggs on wooden timber, the resultant larvae burrow deep into the wood, eating up the cellulose and damaging the structural integrity of the timber. We use chemical woodworm treatments to rid your property of these pests and guarantee our work for 10 years.
Structural Water Proofing
If you have earth-retaining walls in your property, such as underground rooms and basement area, then you make require a structural water proofing solution. We will perform a damp survey to determine the most effective method of preventing water ingress. Our team of damp proofing specialists can then apply it, keeping your rooms dry for future use. We offer 10 year guarantees on all structural water proofing work we undertake.
Rendering and Plastering
Once we have removed any damp, rot, and mould from your property, it is likely that we will have to repair the rendering and plastering on your walls. These materials are susceptible to damage in damp conditions. Our team cuts away damaged areas, replacing them with fresh render or plaster, before skimming to a smooth finish.
Condensation is a natural phenomenon that occurs in virtually every home and commercial building across Edgware. Formed by warm air touching cold walls and windows, it can sometimes settle in place, causing surface damp that can lead to mould and other infestations. We offer effective condensation control features our Edgware customers including specialist paints and improved ventilation.
When you spot mould, rot, or watermarks in your property, it is easy to assume that this is the full extent of any damp. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case, which is why we recommend a full damp survey to all our Edgware customers. Our surveyors check out the whole of your home, finding any other causes of damp and putting together the perfect method of dealing with them. Our damp survey specialists can conduct pre-paid damp surveys starting from £70 to £140.
