How damp can affect a property

Damp that is ongoing, can have far reaching consequences to a property. As brickwork, plaster and surrounding timbers become more and more saturated, damp patches will start to appear, plaster will begin to bubble and crumble and a tidemark, mould and a musty smell could all be evident.

These damp conditions will mean adjacent timbers are at an ever-increasing risk to woodworm and wet and dry rot.

The result is worsening damage to the overall fabric of the property, increased risk of woodworm and fungal attack, and a weakening to the timbers which will become increasingly costly and ever more difficult to repair.

What are the different types of damp?

Damp does not take just one form. It can be classified into three types: rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation. Each type is caused for different reasons and each type will require a different method of damp proofing control and treatment. Working with an experienced damp proofing company is essential to make sure the right approach is taken to resolve the damp problem.
