For your house in Lydiate, damp proofing is an effective means of keeping your house dry and free from the consequences of damp problems. We will visit your home to determine whether the damp is a result of rising damp, penetrating damp or condensation. Penetrating damp can be caused by anything from a broken pipe, leaking roof to a blocked drainpipe or the level of ground outside your property. Rising damp can be caused by a faulty, damaged or non-existent damp proof course in your external walls. It can also be caused by leaking pipes at the base of the wall.  Damp caused by condensation is easy to identify and is quickly repaired by our experts. This is usually caused by a lack of ventilation and may present itself as mould in the bathroom or kitchen. Once our professionals have established the cause of the damp problem in your home, they will suggest the best course of action to solve the problem. If it is rising damp that is causing the damp problems in your house, we may suggest a damp proofing course. This is a layer of plastic damp proofing material that is installed between the bricks near to ground level. It is effective in halting the damp rising from the ground up through your walls. If the damp proofing material is damaged, you will need a new damp proof course, which is usually in the form of an injection of chemicals just above ground level.
