Rising damp is not as common as people think but it can occur when bricks and mortar absorb moisture from the ground through capillary action, causing it to rise up into the wall. This is often the result of raised external ground, such as a new flower bed or driveway bridging the damp proof course. Another reason rising damp can occur is the breakdown or failure of an existing damp proof course. Our Dundee damp specialists will be able to identify if rising damp is the problem during their detailed survey of your property and provide the best solution. It is important to get an expert opinion before commencing with rising damp treatment. Damp symptoms that many homeowners believe to be rising damp can often be one of the damp problems below which require different treatment.
Penetrating damp is usually cause by a defect or leak allowing moisture to penetrate the property walls. Defective roof tiles, broken water management systems and cracks in masonry or render can all allow moisture ingress. Treatments for penetrating damp vary depending on the root cause of the problem. Our Dundee damp specialists will be able to identify the cause of the penetrating damp and recommend the correct solution.
Condensation is caused by moisture in the air resting on cold surfaces. Normally a result of poor ventilation, this damp problem will often result in the germination black mould on walls, ceilings and windowsills and this creates unpleasant living conditions and reduced air quality. Our specialists in Dundee will identify the cause of the condensation and reccomend the best way to reduce humidity and improve ventilation in your home.
If you want to convert a leaking basement into a usable space, then the first step is a basement waterproofing system.
