Do You Have Signs of Damp in Your Property?
If the damp is left untreated the issues become much worse, in some cases causing structural damage leading to significant repair costs with builders and surveyors. When left untreated, the unfortunate fact is that the damp invariably becomes more severe and will eventually cause structural damage leading to higher repair costs in the long run. When diagnosed promptly the underlying causes of the damp in your home can be addressed and treated both effectively and cost effectively. When you first notice you’ve got a damp problem, that’s the right time to take action and call a damp proofing specialist. All Counties Plastering are a time served local damp proofing company specialising in all aspects of damp treatment and remedial repair works.
Penetrating Damp Wirral
Where penetrating damp is below the high external ground level we would carry out a process called tanking, this is applied internally at the bottom of the wall as part of the rising damp treatment.
Where penetrating damp occurs above the external ground level it is often the case that we would apply a water repellent called SecoTherm, to the outside brickwork, this prevents rain penetration into the brickwork and the chemical structure allows any moisture present in the wall to evaporate into the atmosphere. (A breathable membrane.) Other treatments include repairing damaged brickwork, guttering, downpipes and roofing repairs. After carrying out a free, no obligation survey of your property our surveyor will be able to advise straight away what is causing penetrating damp in your property and will advise on the best treatment option, this will be followed up by a written quotation for treatment within 48 hours.
Rising Damp Wirral
When treating rising damp Wirral all work undertaken by our team is carried out in accordance with British Standards BS-6576-1985, entitled, The Installation of a Chemical Damp Proof Course.
If required, and the new damp course needs to be injected from inside of the property plaster would be removed from the wall to a minimum height of 1.00 metre from the internal floor and a chemical damp proof course would be installed, if possible and the injection can be carried out externally this makes the job cheaper in terms of its cost to the homeowner as remedial repair works such as re plastering will not be required. Wherever possible we inject new courses externally but on the occassion this is not possible we will explain why to the homeowner.
Brickwork would be treated with an anti-sulphate solution to stabilise the salts ensuring no further salt contamination to the new plaster, after which a lightweight renovating plaster will be applied to the brickwork and then the wall will be skim plaster finished.
