DAMP PROOFING IN FOLKESTONE

DampGuard Timber Preservation are specialists in damp proofing in

Folkestone and all surrounding towns and villages.

Rising damp is the result of dampness in the ground travelling upwards by capillary action through porous brickwork, mortar, sandstone or other building materials. The process is the same as that which causes oil to travel upwards through the wick of a lamp.
What is rising damp?
A common indication of rising damp is the characteristic marking or discolouration of papered or plastered wall surfaces. This discolouration is caused by the dissolved salts in the rising groundwater evaporating and accumulating at or near the highest point of travel of the rising damp.
This can be prevented by installing a barrier in the lower part of the property’s wall. This barrier, usually known as a damp proof course, prevents the passage of the rising moisture and so remedies the problem.
Where rising damp exists, the damage can usually be seen in the lower wall areas where there may disruption of the  plaster and often some decay of the timbers or skirting boards in the affected 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 it is standard practice to include damp proof courses in new buildings, older properties may not have had one installed. Even if one has been installed, most damp proof courses will tend to deteriorate after a number of years and so may eventually need replacing.
The usual solution is to install or reinstall a remedial damp proof course, requiring removal of the affected skirting boards and plaster and installation of a new chemical damp proof course.  This type of damp course is very effective and is installed either by injecting solvent-based fluids at high pressure or using water- based creams injected at low pressure using special cartridge guns.

Once the damp proof course has been installed, the walls can be re-plastered with a salt resistant plaster and skirting boards renewed or replaced. The existing skirting boards can be refitted if they are rot-free and in good condition.
