DAMP PROOFING IN HASTINGS

DampGuard Timber Preservation are specialists in damp proofing in Hastings

and all local areas.

The term ‘rising damp’ describes the result of moisture or dampness in the ground which travels up through the wall by capillary action, in the same way that oil travels upwards through the wick of a lamp.
What is rising damp?
You can often identify the existence of rising damp by the characteristic peeling or flaking of paintwork on a wall or by the discolouration of wallpaper or plaster on a  wall. The discolouration is caused by salts dissolved in the rising groundwater which are left as deposits when the water evaporates part way up your wall.
The remedy for rising damp is the installation of an impervious barrier, or damp proof course in the lower part of the wall, thereby preventing moisture from rising and creating a problem. 
Damage caused by rising damp can usually be seen in the lower parts of a wall, frequently indicated by disruption of the  plaster and often accompanied by decay in the skirting boards or in the timbers which are in the damp areas.
How is rising damp treated?
We are specialists in damp proof course work as well as plastering and fitting skirtings. 
Although new buildings now have damp courses built in as standard practice, older properties without a damp course may well suffer from rising damp. Even in newer builds, most installed damp courses will eventually show signs of deterioration and so may need attention if signs of damp start to appear.
The usual remedy for rising damp is to install a chemical damp proof course. This will almost certainly involve removal of the affected skirting boards and plaster and possibly removal and replacement of floorboards or floor timbers if they have succumbed to rot.  The walls can then be re-plastered with a salt resistant plaster and the skirting boards refitted if they are sound or replaced if not.

A  chemical damp proof course is installed either by high pressure injection of solvent-based fluids or low pressure injection of water-based creams using low-pressure cartridge guns.
