In general terms, there are three types of damp, and all can cause structural damage to your home and health issues for your family.
Penetrating damp comes through the walls or roofs, resulting from gaps and cracks within the mortar or missing/broken slates or tiles.
Rising damp is exactly what it says it is and owing to the wonders of gravity, it won’t reach as high as the first floor, but it is a myth that it only reaches a maximum height of 1 metre. Rising damp can be caused by the break-down of an old fashioned slate damp-proof course, or it could be the deterioration of an electro osmotic damp proof course. This can often happen if the exterior of your house has been rendered in a synthetic coating, or if crucial ventilation bricks have been covered over.
Finally you have condensation damp, which is usually recognized by black spots in the corners of rooms, especially ones prone to excessive condensation, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
So, what to do if you have a damp problem? Well, damp treatment is something our team of skilled tradesmen have been carrying out for many years, and you can rest assured that we tell it like it is – if the damp is not an issue, we will soon say. We never make up problems where they don’t exist. Our reputation is far too valuable for such practices. Sometimes the solution is as simple as putting a small vent in a window frame.
