Here is what you can expect from us…

Identifying the Cause of Your Rising Damp

Rising damp is caused when moisture is drawn up from the ground through brickwork and timber. Most modern houses have a damp proof course in place to prevent this, so the existence of rising damp indicates a bridge or break in the course. We perform a detailed damp survey of your property to get to the root of the problem.

Damp Proof Course Solutions

The easiest way to stop rising damp in its tracks is to fit or reapply a damp proof course. A silicon solution is injected deep into the mortar and brickwork of your property, which soon sets to a watertight layer. This prevents any moisture from being drawn up from the damp earth below, eliminating your rising damp problem.

External Causes and Solutions

Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with the damp proof course you currently have in place. In such circumstances, the issue might be earth and soil outside the property that has built up above the DPC and is now leaching water through the wall. This can be remedied by removing the excess soil from the exterior of the wall.

An end-to-end Rising Damp Solution

Rising damp can be extremely damaging to your walls, both inside and out. It can cause plaster to crumble, wallpaper to bubble and peel, and paint to flake away. In addition to performing damp surveys and resolving your rising damp, we will also repair your damaged plaster and render. This is available in Barnet, Borehamwood, Cricklewood, Edgware, Finchley, Hendon, North Finchley, and beyond.
