Rising Damp

Rising damp is perhaps the most common form of damp problems and is likely to be the one you have heard the most about. Rising damp describes the process when damage, cracks and holes draw water upwards through a building’s brickwork. This is called capillary action. Materials such as brickword, absorb moisture from the ground, or sometimes other sources, and then transfer it to adjacent areas. It means that when rising damp occurs, it can damage large areas including the internal surfaces of walls and floors (whether they’re timber or another material) It is vital that any damp problem is addressed as soon as you notice it to prevent further damage and expensive repairs.

We have a team of experienced CSRT surveyors that would love to carry out a damp proofing survey on your property. They are experts at identifying causes of rising damp and therefore can recommend the best treatment to get rid of it for good.  Additionally, we have trained PCAQ Technicians who are experts at carrying out damp proofing and other associated works such as timber preservation. They help to ensure that your home stays dry and comfortable, wherever you are in York or Yorkshire.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is caused when moisture enters the wall of a building from a source other than the ground beneath the wall. It occurs most commonly in walls such as basement or cellars, known as earth retaining walls. The earth surrounding these walls is naturally very moist. The water easily transfers onto the external brickwork which it is in contact with, and then, through capillary action, soaks through the brick material. It eventually reaches the internal face of the wall. Like with rising damp, penetrating damp causes lasting and harmful damage and needs to be sorted if anyone intends to spend time in the room.

Other causes of penetrating damp include:

  • broken or leaky guttering
  • cracked render or brickwork
  • defective window sills.

Allterton Remedial Treatments are leading damp proofing York specialists. Our CSRT surveyors happily visit homes that are sufering from penetrating damp and have years of experience; if your home is affected, contact us today to secure your free survey appointment.

How much does damp proofing cost?

Answer: Damp proofing work varies a lot in how much it costs, which is why it’s always recommended that you have an expert look at the areas that need treating before getting a price – otherwise it will be inaccurate. At Allerton Damp Proofing, we will always provide a full quotation or estimate to you prior to carrying out any project. Additionally, our team would love to discuss the range of choices that are available to you as, more often than not, there is more than one solution to any damp problem.

How long does damp proofing take?

Answer: It does depend on the size of the project and work that needs undertaking. Generally, if a project is reasonably small, it could be completed within 2-5 working days.  On top of this time, we recommend that any walls which have been treated and replastered are left to dry out for a good period of time before being decorated.
