THE DANGERS OF RISING DAMP

Damp is the dreaded scourge of many a building, affecting the health of the structure and also the health of the inhabitants.

There are many different types of damp problems in buildings, and many damp proof services, treatments and cures available.

Structural Repairs have a specialist Damp Proof Services team fully trained and qualified to identify the type of damp problem that is affecting your building, and apply a damp-proofing solution.

Damp Proof Services
One of the most common problems our team is called in to deal with is Rising Damp, which occurs when water absorbed from the ground rises up through the bricks and mortar of the walls of a building by capillary action. The walls soak up the surrounding ground water like a sponge.

The result is a tide mark on the bottom of the walls just above the skirting boards, deposits of mineral salts on the walls, bubbling and/or flaking paint and render, and damp, curling wallpaper.

Rising damp occurs when the building s damp proof course (a waterproof layer built into the brickwork just above ground level) fails for some reason, or when the ground level rises above the damp proof course for instance if soil is piled against an exterior wall.

To combat the rising damp our team will thoroughly investigate and diagnose the issue. The problem could be as simple as a breech in the damp proof course caused by a blocked cavity wall, or as serious as having to install a new damp proof course. This is not as drastic as it sounds, because we can usually inject a chemical damp proof course through drilled holes.

Penetrating damp is another damp problem our team is experienced at dealing with. This occurs when aging bricks and mortar on a weather-beaten wall become degraded and no longer able to keep rain from penetrating. It can also be caused by defective guttering and downpipes, damage to the roof, or poorly installed windows.

Once again if you notice a damp problem in your property it is wise to call in our damp proof services experts to find the root of the problem, and deal with it. Painting or papering over the problem will certainly not stop the ingress of the damp, or stop it from doing structural damage to your home or commercial building.
