About Damp Cure Services

Damp Proofing

Hello,

We do charge a nominal fee for the survey.
This is to cover the cost of the visit and subsequent written report.
I have saved many homebuyers from being sold unnecessary treatments.
The inspection can take upto two hours and I will get to the cause and solutions and work with you to understand everything and alongside your budget and concerns.

The initial consultation fee is taken off your final quotation if work is needed. Otherwise it's just a one off survey fee.

We can provide a complete service from start to decorative finish.

Penetrating damp :

Cracks in render are common and removal is sometimes necessary to prevent internal damp patches. Provide both a re-render or make good of brickwork and re-point and paint.

Drainage and guttering fix and clear out.

Removal of internal plaster and cure.

Rising Damp & Salt Damp:

A two fold approach tackling external causes and internal rectification.
External solutions : french drain and or lowered patio/ external area and ecodeck with shingle. Chemical injection where necessary. (seen more damp jobs that have had chemical injection than not!!!)

Internal solutions : removal to damp areas of plaster back to brickwork. Open to options on how you would like it reinstated with pros and cons to each choice. Then skimmed to a decorative finish. decorating if applicable.

PLEASE NOTE : WALLS NEED TO BE FULLY CURED AND DRY BEFORE ANY INTERNAL PAINTING AS THE MOISTURE IN PAINT WILL ONLY CAUSE FURTHER PROBLEMS.

Condensation
Mould :
comprehensive mould cleaning service, using only the latest envirovent MouldGuard+.. including tiles cleaned and restored back to new .

Insulation of walls using products to suit your budget.

Using Envirovent to install latest ventilation.

Condensation is caused by warm, moist air hitting cold surfaces, which causes the moisture in the air to condense and form water droplets.  On soft or absorbent surfaces, you cannot see the water droplets as they are absorbed, but they can be clearly seen on non-absorbent glossy surfaces. If you do not deal with condensation, it can rot wood such as doors and window frames as well as damage furnishings.  Mould will grow as a result of condensation, and you can see this on walls, furnishings and clothing. The spores from some types of mould can be bad for your lungs and affect people with breathing problems such as asthma.
