DAMP PROOFING IN ASHFORD

DampGuard Timber Preservation are specialists in damp proofing in Ashford

and all local areas.

Rising damp is the result of dampness in the ground travelling upwards through the wall by capillary action - in the same way that oil travels up through the wick of a lamp.
What is rising damp?
The most usual sign that you have rising damp is the characteristic flaking or peeling of paintwork or the discolouration of wallpapered or plastered walls. The discolouration is due to salts dissolved in the rising groundwater which are deposited when the water evaporates part way up your wall.
Rising damp can be prevented by installing an impervious barrier, or damp proof course, in the lower part of the wall which prevents the moisture from rising and so remedies the cause of the problem. 
If or when a damp proof course should fail, or if one has never been installed, damage can usually be seen in the lower wall areas. The most common indication is disruption to the  plaster often accompanied by decay of the timbers or skirting boards which are in contact with the damp areas.
How is rising damp treated?
DampGuard Timber Preservation are specialists in damp proof course work as well as plastering and fitting skirtings.  Please contact us for more information or to arrange for a free, no obligation quotation.
Although new buildings have built in damp courses as standard practice, older properties may have been built without one and consequently may suffer from damp. Unfortunately, even if your property was built with an installed damp course, most will show signs of deterioration after many years and so may eventually need replacing if there are signs of damp.
A remedial chemical damp proof course is the most usual solution, which requires removal of the affected skirting boards and plaster, plus replacement of floor timbers if there has been substantial rot.  The walls can then be re-plastered, usually with a salt resistant plaster, and the original skirting boards replaced if they are sound or new ones fitted if not.
