There are two types of damp that can affect your home: rising damp or penetrating damp. Rising damp is one of the most common and affects houses throughout Wakefield. It is a process in which water penetrates the material of your walls from the ground. It occurs more often in older buildings when the brickwork degrades and becomes damages over time. Cracks and pores appear in the brick and form a network of capillaries. Due to changing pressure, water is pulled up through ‘capillary action’. It results in moisture in the walls. When moisture has infiltrated a wall, it then is absorbed by the material and spreads through the whole building.
Penetrating damp works through a similar process, but rather than moisture coming from under the wall, it comes from the surrounding areas. It is most common in basements and cellars which have walls surrounded by damp earth. The bricks draw moisture in, which causes damage over time.
I’VE FOUND DAMP, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
How much does damp proofing Wakefield cost?
Answer: Damp proofing work varies considerably in price, which is why it is always sensible to have an expert inspect the areas in need of treatment first. At Allerton Damp Proofing, we will always provide a full quotation or estimate to you prior to carrying out any project. Additionally, our staff are always happy to discuss the range of options available to you as, more often than not, there is more than one solution to any damp problem.
How long does damp proofing Wakefield take?
Answer: This depends on the size of the project, but generally, if a project is reasonably small, it might be possible to complete within 2-5 working days. Thereafter, we recommend that any walls which have been treated and replastered are left to dry out for a good period of time before redecoration.
