DAMP PROOFING

Hastings, Hythe, Tenterden, Folkestone and Ashford.

Rising damp occurs when dampness in the ground travels upwards by capillary action through porous building materials such as brickwork, mortar or sandstone. The effect is the same process that makes oil travel upwards through the wick of a lamp.
What is rising damp?
Rising damp can often be identified by the characteristic discolouration or marking of decorations on wall surfaces. This marking is caused by the soluble salts contained in the groundwater evaporating and accumulating at the upper level of the rising damp.
The effect can be prevented by installing a barrier, usually known as a damp proof course, in the wall sited near the base of the property. This barrier prevents the passage of moisture and so resolves the problem.
When a damp proof course fails, or if none exists, damage can occur to lower wall areas. This usually involves disruption to plaster and decay of any timbers in contact with the damp walls.

Although damp proof courses are included as standard practice in new buildings, older properties may not have one. Also, most damp proof courses will break down after a number of years and will eventually need replacing.
The solution to rising damp is to install or reinstall a remedial damp proof course. This involves removal of the affected plaster and skirting boards, installation of a new chemical damp proof course and then re-plastering with a salt resistant plaster and renewing or replacing skirting boards. Existing skirting boards can be refitted if they are in good condition.
Damp Proofing in Romney Marsh
Treatment is by the high pressure injection of solvent-based fluids or low pressure injection of water- based creams using low-pressure cartridge guns.
