In Baildon buildings there are three principal problem areas of how damp can affect your property:

Damp Proofing Baildon West Yorkshire (BD17)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These three primary kinds of damp are described in more detail in the following paragraphs, together with recommendations for prevention and resolution, in the event you find them in your property in Baildon.


Penetrating damp in the home can be caused by numerous external factors such as: defective guttering, cavity wall problems, cracks in brickwork and loose or cracked roof tiles. Inside a home, damaged shower trays, burst or leaky pipes and overflowing bathtubs or basins, can trigger penetrating damp. If left uncontrolled, blistered or broken plaster, damp dark patches on walls and peeling paintwork, will be the obvious upshot of water soaking into the walls and woodwork.

If neglected for some time, a leaky roof can cause wet rot in your roof timbers. Although it is lucky that wet rot does not have an impact on brickwork, in the worst case, you may need a new roof if the timbers of your roof become unsound structurally. A distinctive musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your woodwork and signs of black fungus, could all herald the existence of wet rot.

The measures for prevention can be fairly basic, for example examining pipework for leaks, repointing brickwork and cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks. If you use the services of a competent Baildon damp proofing specialist, they will check all these elements as a part of your all round damp proofing package.


Condensation Damp Baildon UK (01274)

One of the most common forms of damp in many houses in Baildon, condensation is extremely easy to identify. Small droplets of water appear on cold surfaces when they come into contact with humid, warm air. In areas with high humidity, as in: boiler rooms, kitchens and bathrooms, condensation is often caused due to poor ventilation.

To prevent condensation issues, basic strategies include ensuring you have enough ventilation in the affected areas, and wiping up any water droplets as soon as they appear. The steps needed might involve the installation or upgrade of air bricks, extractor fans and cooker hoods, with the intention of redirecting damp air to the outside of your home in Baildon.

There could be issues with sucking in damp air from the outside, and by performing an in-depth damp proof survey an expert in Baildon will find areas that exacerbate the situation. Airflow must be regulated properly to effectively minimise condensation, and a knowledgeable damp proofing technician will be able to give advice and offer solutions on this topic.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Baildon West Yorkshire


Homes constructed since 1875 in the UK have been required to have a damp proof course or membrane to be installed as standard. If your home or property was constructed before this period it's perfectly possible you may not have one installed. It is a possibility that your damp proof course might have been damaged in some way if you are experiencing rising damp problems in a property built after this year.

Although tricky to distinguish, a white powdery deposit being discovered on floor surfaces or forming on walls, "tide marks" on walls and crumbling or rotten skirting boards, are all giveaway signs of rising damp. It is plausible that you might have a rising damp problem if you've noticed one or all of these in your property.

Rising Damp Baildon West Yorkshire

Purely checking your external walls to find out if you have a DPM can be the first step towards eliminating your problems with rising damp. To be sure of a satisfactory measure of protection the damp proof course must be above ground level by no less than 150mm. You can dig away the surrounding ground to generate this space if it's currently not enough, or you can install a higher damp proof membrane (DPM) if the first option isn't feasible.

If this isn't the root cause of the problem and your damp proof membrane (DPM) is installed and in order, there could be more serious issues to resolve caused by the dampness coming up from the ground beneath, through your flooring, and into the walls.

Baildon damp proofing professionals will quickly be able to determine the explanation for your rising damp issues, and employing a range of techniques will soon solve the problem. If you've got a somewhat older house with no DPM or one that's damaged over a significant area, a damp proof cream (such as Permaguard or Dryzone) can be carefully injected into your external walls. Evenly spaced holes are drilled at intervals along the brickwork, and a special nozzle used to inject the cream, which then diffuses before curing to form an effective water-repelling barrier.

If the deterioration of your DPM is too extensive, or if damp proofing cream isn't a satisfactory solution, you might have to install a brand new damp proof course. This is the most drastic of repair works, but it might be the only remedy for your rising damp.

The application of a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is another potential solution for smaller areas of damage. This is applied underneath your current floor coverings, so carpets, tiles and laminate flooring must be lifted before any work is undertaken. In basements this is a particularly efficacious treatment, and will form a part of the "tanking" process that is used to make spaces watertight. Your Baildon damp proofing technician may recommend a layer of building paper (a foil backed specialist membrane) before the bitumen paint has dried completely, added protection in those trouble spots.

Tanking: Tanking an area, such as a cellar or part below ground area, is a process of covering exposed surfaces with a waterproof paint. Any wall coverings and plaster must be taken off and the pertinent surfaces prepared properly before work commences, because this coating must be applied on the base surface of floors and walls. You can replaster and decorate over the top, after the coating has dried completely. You should always get more than one specialist opinion about whether this really is the only cure for your damp problems, because this is a very disruptive job because it has to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a property.


Dehumidifiers are an efficient way of lowering the moisture content in the air, so for problems with condensation they can help quite a bit. The drawback with dehumidifier use in attempting to eliminate damp is that they simply mask the cause of the damp, not get rid of it. To obtain the most reliable advice if you are experiencing damp in any part of your home, you should get in touch with an experienced damp proofing company in Baildon.


As with pretty much any home improvement project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a local professional come from neighbours and friends. Always obtain at least three different quotations from various companies, and if you have any doubts you can ask to look at qualifications and professional memberships, before hiring any damp proof services.

Professional Baildon damp proofing companies should be signed up members of either the Damp Proofing Association (DPA) or the PCA (Property Care Association), or have accreditations from the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments (CSRT) or the Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness.

Membership of either the DPA or PCA guarantees your preferred damp proofing specialist is well qualified and has acquired the required experience to carry out a first class damp proof service. Any remedial work performed by one of their members is also guaranteed.
