Most people think that the best treatment for damp is a chemical damp proof course (DPC), but this is often not the case. Lots of damp proofing systems have been developed over the years. The best of these are used and applied by us to keep homes dry. These range from Chemical DPC systems like Dry Zone to external treatments like StormDry and also internal damp proof pore-lining systems, both permeable and impermeable as required. The skill is in good damp diagnosis and matching the diagnosis to the precise intervention if required – this saves time and money in repeat treatment later. Not least this approach saves on application of unnecessary treatments.
Our damp specialists regularly find that the problem stems from penetrating damp or condensation – in which case, chemical damp proofing will be ineffective. However, a DPC can be applied in situations where rising damp is the root issue, so it’s essential to ensure that the correct diagnosis is made in the first instance, to save unnecessary expense. Even then, a DPC may not be the answer; rising damp can be caused by an existing DPC being bypassed and simply ‘un-bridging’ the DPC may be all that is required. Skilled and impartial surveyors like us are needed in these cases, so that only the correct work is recommended.
Whichever one of our specialist surveyors visit your property, they’ll carry out a series of inspections and tests, ensuring that any recommendation for damp proofing is in line with the specific problems that are causing your internal damp – we’re committed to doing the job once, and doing it right or not at all.
While we’re 100% confident in our ability to correctly diagnose your damp issues and provide a robust fix, for your continued peace of mind, we also provide a 10 year insured damp proofing guarantee on all work completed. We’ve being guaranteeing our work for 30 years, seeing many guarantees expire naturally over that time, having met our clients expectations in full.
