Harrogate is a beautiful area of North Yorkshire with a long history. This means there a lot of older houses in the city. Over time homes and properties naturally wear down, developing cracks in the internal workings of the walls and other problems that lead to damp.
Rising damp develops as water from the ground below a property infiltrates the material. As walls age, cracks naturally develop in the brickwork. These cracks form small capillaries which draw water up from the ground through a process known as ‘capillary action’, pulling moisture into the internal structure of a wall. Once water is in the wall, the material including brick, wood and plaster all absorb the moisture, creating a long-term damp problem. The moisture is spread throughout the wall, increasing the problem as time goes on.
If damp is left, it can permanently damage the structure of walls and threaten the safety of occupants in the building.
But this isn’t a reason to worry: there are damp proofers in Harrogate ready to help! Our CSRT surveyors are trained and qualified to deal with damp, and are able to give you an accurate quotation and time estimate for every job. Our PCAQ qualified technicians pride themselves on doing the best work while respecting your property and space. If you’re in Harrogate and struggling with damp problems, talk to us today.
Penetrating damp is another variety of damp that causes the same problems as rising damp to home in Harrogate. Rather than water being drawn up from the ground, with penetrating damp, moisture infiltrates walls from other sources that surround the material. This form of damp is particularly common in basements and cellars that have walls surrounded by ground.
It can also occur in above-ground rooms. Broken guttering, for example, causes water to leak onto walls and can enter through pores in the material – particularly in older homes.
Don’t let penetrating damp affect the comfort of your home or your own health, get in touch with Allerton Damp Proofing.

I’VE FOUND DAMP, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
How much does damp proofing in Harrogate cost?
The cost of damp proofing varies a lot according to the size and scale of the problem. The longer damp is left, the more chaos it causes and the more time it takes to tackle! When you come to us with your damp problem, we’ll send out one of our friendly and qualified surveyors who can give you an accurate quote based on the real needs of your property. We will always do this before any work is undertaken so there are no surprises. We want you to be 100% happy with our service from start to finish.
How long does damp proofing take?
If you’re looking to damp proof your home in Harrogate, it will depend on the size of your property as to the time it takes. If a project is reasonably small, it might require 2-3 days. After our damp proofers have completed the treatment, we recommend that you let the wall dry out completely before plastering and decorating to ensure there’s no risk of the damp returning.
