Damp is a perennial problem in our climate and if left untreated, it can lead to not just structural problems in your buildings, but it can also pose a health hazard to the occupants. Damp can ruin furniture, artwork and paintings. It is a health risk especially for children and seniors.
Leaving damp unattended to can increase the risk of insect and fungal infestations and dry rot. In Bootle, damp proof membrane fitted to your roof can help deal with wetness from rain, snow. Additionally, membranes installed on the floor in basements and internal walls provides further protection. The high levels of precipitation in the UK lead to such problems all over the country. If you live in an older house, this can be a huge problem, since these structures don’t have modern damp course techniques built into them. In other buildings, the damp course may be malfunctioning, blocked or damaged. Signs of damp can be identified by several means – look at the internal walls. If you notice mould, discoloration, damp patches, peeling or bubbling plasterwork, there’s obviously a problem. In poorly ventilated rooms, condensation on the walls and ceiling can cause problems, especially in areas of high humidity like bathrooms.
Damp proof membranes fitted in Bootle by us offer protection against rising damp from the ground and against precipitation from the roof. Contact Ray Betts today if you need damp proof membrane fitted. We can advise you on the right type of membranes to be fitted. These membranes are impermeable to water and provide an effective barrier to water. However, they should be fitted continuous to the damp course configuration in walls.
