The Sheffield area has homes, commercial properties and buildings from every decade for hundreds of years. They all require specialist and unique care in order to prevent deterioration. Both rising and penetrating damp can damage the structural integrity of houses, as well as threatening the health of occupants. Dry and wet rot also damage the woodwork, floors and timber in properties. They make the building dangerous, leading to expensive repairs in the future. Allerton Damp Proofing allow you to protect your home, catching damp or rot before it damages your property.
Rising damp is the most common cause and the one people most often associate with damp proofing. It is caused by water moving upwards through a building from a source below the wall, usually the ground, through a mechanism called ‘capillary action’. The material of the building, everything from brickwork to woodwork, absorbs the moisture. It then transfers it to adjacent areas of the wall and building, multiplying the problem.
Rising damp can damage a huge number of parts of a building including walls and floors (sometimes leading to wet rot) and causes increasing problems the longer it is left. Address your damp problem as soon as you become aware of it. We have a team of trained and experienced CSRT Surveyors that can identify the cause of rising damp in your property. When they conduct a survey, they recommend the best and most effective treatment to eradicate the damp and make your property a more comfortable and safe place — preventing further damage in the future. We also have qualified PCAQ Technicians who carry out all damp proofing associated works. This includes dealing with condensation, rot and woodworm, among many others. Allerton Damp Proofing keeps your Sheffield home dry.
Penetrating damp is the second type of damp that is equally detrimental to your home. It is caused when water infiltrates a building’s walls, floors or other material through a different source to the ground. Most commonly, this occurs in earth retaining walls such as in cellars or basements.
When walls are surrounded by damp earth, the external brickwork absorbs the water that is present and, through capillary action, this water bleeds through the brick and to the internal side of the wall. It forms damp patches and can lead to mould and rot. It damages the internal face of the wall, the decor and can be harmful to the health of any occupants. Penetrating damp can also occur in non-earth retaining walls. Broken or leaking gutters can provide water that is drawn into the wall, as can cracked renders or brickwork, and defective windowsills. If you have a home or property suffering from damp, Allerton are leading damp proofers. CSRT surveyors visit homes across the city and are experienced in identifying penetrating damp and recommending the best treatment.

I’VE FOUND DAMP, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
How much does damp proofing cost?
Sheffield damp proofing varies in price according to the unique needs and design of your property. It is always important to have an expert survey the areas in need of treatment in order to give you an accurate quote. Allerton Damp Proofing will always provide a full quotation or estimate before carrying out any project so you know exactly what to expect — there are never any hidden costs or nasty surprises! Our team are happy to talk about all your options as there are usually multiple solutions to any damp problem.
How long does damp proofing take?
The time damp proofing takes is dependant upon the size of the project and the extent of the damp problem. If a project is reasonably small, it might be possible to complete within 2-5 working days. We recommend that the walls that have been treated and plastered are left to dry out for a considerable amount of time before being redecorated. This ensures that the damp proofing work is as effective as possible.
