Professional Damp Proofing
in North Finchley and Finchley
As your local damp proofing specialists, we have much to offer our North Finchley and Finchley customers. Here is a few of our more popular services…
We offer a variety of damp proofing services to our customers in North Finchley and Finchley. From damp proof course injections into the brickwork to damp proof membranes across concrete floors, our damp surveys will find the ideal solution for your property. These can help defend against penetrating damp and rising damp alike.
Rising damp is caused by moisture being drawn up into your walls through the porous brickwork and timbers – a process known as capillary action. This normally affects ground floor rooms and is easily remedied by the application of a damp proof course injection. Like other forms of damp, it needs to be dealt with immediately to prevent further damage. All rising damp work carried out by Olympic Preservation Ltd is covered by our 20 year guarantee.
Wet Rot and Dry Rot
To eliminate wet rot and dry rot from your home or business premises, we first need to identify the cause of the damp conditions in which they flourish. These fungal infestations can be extremely destructive to masonry, woodwork, and plaster and care needs to be taken to remove them while preventing them from spreading. We guarantee any work we carry out for 10 years.
Woodworm is also included in our damp surveys. It refers to the larvae of several wood-boring insects found in homes across North Finchley and Finchley. While the outwards signs of an infestation are little more than minute holes in the wood, beneath the surface they are doing untold damage. We use effective chemical insecticides to kill off the adult insects and larvae alike and guarantee our work for 10 years.
Structural Water Proofing
Underground areas like basements and cellars often suffer from penetrating damp thanks to their earth retaining walls. At Olympic Preservation Ltd, we provide a range of structural water proofing solutions to eliminate this problem. From waterproof concrete barriers to internal drainage systems, we always find the right solution to meet your property’s specific needs. We offer a 10 year guarantee on all structural water proofing work we undertake.
Rendering and Plastering
Some damp proofing companies are content to handle the cause of water ingress into your property, but that is only part of the solution. Penetrating damp and rising damp alike can severely damage plaster and render on your walls. At Olympic Preservation Ltd, we leave your walls looking like new, performing all rendering and plastering to a flawless finish.
Condensation is an everyday occurrence in most properties, the result of warm, humid air meeting with cold walls and windows. If your home or business is particularly susceptible to the problem, you may require professional assistance. This can take the form of anti-condensation paints or the installation of a powerful ventilation system to rid your property of excess moisture. PIV (or Positive Input Ventilation) systems are an excellent way to reduce the risk of condensation in private homes.
Before we are able to treat your property in North Finchley or Finchley for damp, we recommend a full damp survey performed by our team of experts. The reason for this is simple: evidence of damp in one part of a house strongly implies other instances of damp elsewhere. Only by conducting a damp survey can we determine the full extent of the problem. Our damp survey specialists can conduct pre-paid damp surveys from £70 to £140.
