Professional Damp Proofing
in Wood Green
As your local damp proofing specialists, we have much to offer our Wood Green customers. Here is a few of our more popular services…
We perform an initial damp survey to determine the best solution for your property. The most common method of Damp proofing to protect your property from water ingress is a damp proof course injection and a damp proof membrane. We insert a waterproof barrier above the water table to prevent penetrating damp through the walls or floor.
With rising damp, it is usually only the lower floors of a building that are affected by moisture being drawn up from the soil through porous brickwork and timbers. By the application of a damp proof course injection directly into the brickwork by Olympic Preservation Ltd, it is normally easy enough to remedy – a process we have conducted hundreds of times in properties and buildings throughout Wood Green.
Wet Rot and Dry Rot
Our thorough and professional surveys, also pick up the presence of wet rot and dry rot which is caused by a variety of fungus that thrive in damp conditions causing serious damage to woodwork and masonry alike. Removing the rot is a two-part job. Initially, we deal with the cause of the damp, followed by the process to eradicate the rot itself, repairing or replacing any damage. We guarantee any work we carry out for 10 years.
Woodworm is a catch-all term for several species of wood-boring beetles that can cause significant damage to your floorboards and timbers if left unchecked. Olympic Preservation Ltd use effective chemical timber treatments in properties and buildings across Wood Green to eradicate all such insects, repairing or replacing any timbers that have suffered extensive damage, all covered by our 10 year guarantee.
Structural Water Proofing
Structural water proofing is undertaken to underground areas that have earth retaining walls such as basements, cellars, and tunnels that allow water ingress as a consequence of penetrating damp. Olympic Preservation Ltd can offer several possible solutions to rectify this issue whereby our structural water proofing experts will recommend the one best suited to your property based on the findings of our initial damp survey. All structural water proofing work we undertake is backed by our 10 year guarantee.
Rendering and Plastering
Depending on the work undertaken to resolve your damp issue, your interior and exterior walls may require some remedial action afterwards. Olympic Preservation Ltd can deal with all rendering and plastering work required. We carefully remove any damage from the affected area before replacing it using quality plaster and render to leave your walls with a smooth and flawless finish, ready to be painted or papered.
Is your Wood Green property susceptible to condensation? If so, there are several ways in which the professionals at Olympic Preservation Ltd can help including anti-condensation paints, unblocking air vents and installing new and efficient ventilation systems such as a PIV (Positive Input Ventilation). A PIV forces out humid air in favour of clean, filtered air which reduces the risk of condensation. The best solution can be determined by a thorough damp survey conducted by our experienced and expert team before any work can begin.
Olympic Preservation Ltd always recommend a full damp survey before we begin any treatment to establish the presence of rising damp, penetrating damp, condensation, or rot. A full damp survey gives us a better idea of the steps we need to take to damp-proof your property. Our damp survey specialists can conduct pre-paid damp surveys from £70 to £140.
