In the following paragraphs, we'll look at what causes such damp problems, and how you can set about solving them, and preventing them from occurring.


A few of the external factors that might lead to penetrating damp in a structure include: cavity wall issues, damaged guttering or downspouts, cracks in brickwork and cracked or loose roof tiles. Inside your property, it can also be a result of cracked shower trays, burst or leaking pipework and overflowing baths or basins. Walls and timber components can be affected if left unresolved, and will be visible as dark, damp patches on walls, flaking or bubbling paintwork and blistering or broken plaster.

Roofing timbers that are continually damp due to a leaking roof, can get wet rot if this isn't dealt with. Wet rot does not spread into the brickwork, but having it can mean that in the worst outcome your roof timbers become structurally compromised, necessitating a new roof. An unusual musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your roof timbers and indications of black fungus, could all suggest the existence of wet rot.

To help prevent this, there are some basic preventative measures you can take: inspecting piping for leaks, cleaning your rain gutters & roof and checking for leaks and repointing dodgy brickwork.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Bidford-on-Avon Warwickshire


Since 1875, a damp proof course or membrane has been fitted as standard in all homes built in the UK. If your home or property was built before this time it's perfectly possible you might not have this installed. If your home was constructed after this year, but you're still suffering with rising damp, it might be that your damp proof course has been damaged.

If you suppose that you may have rising damp in your home, tide marks on walls, white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being found on floor surfaces and rotten or crumbling skirting boards, are good indications that you might be correct. It is possible that you may have a rising damp problem if you have seen one or all of these in your home.

Rising Damp Bidford-on-Avon Warwickshire

Purely checking your home's external walls to see if you have a damp course can be the first step towards eliminating your rising damp. It ought to be 150 millimetres (approximately six inches) above the level of the ground for adequate protection. You could dig away the surrounding earth to generate this space if it's currently not enough, or you can install a higher DPM (damp proof membrane) if the former isn't feasible.

If your damp proof course is correct and the gap isn't the explanation for the problem, moisture might be coming up through your floors and into your walls, which could be a more serious issue.

Using a number of procedures, damp proofing specialists in Bidford-on-Avon can swiftly detect and eliminate rising damp issues. Older properties which either don't have a damp proof membrane, or have a compromised one that's damaged over a considerable area, can have a damp proofing cream injected into the exterior walls. This calls for the drilling of holes at evenly spaced intervals into your wall's mortar joint and the special cream injected with a nozzle to plug the gaps behind the brickwork.

If the damp proof cream treatment isn't appropriate, or the damage to your membrane is too extensive, a new damp proof course might have to be put in. While this sort of repair work is a pretty drastic way to solve rising damp problems, it could be the only solution in the end.

Damp Proofers Bidford-on-Avon (B50)

Another possible option for minimal areas of damage could include painting with a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion coating. Laminate flooring, tiles or carpets will have to be lifted before any work can be carried out, since it is applied underneath your current floor coverings. This is particularly effectual in basements as part of the "tanking" procedure to create a watertight room. Your Bidford-on-Avon damp proof expert may recommend the use of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen paint has has dried out completely, added protection in those trouble spots.

Tanking: In cellars and below ground areas of a property, "tanking" is the process where any exposed surfaces are covered in a waterproof coating. Because this coating must be applied to the base surfaces of floors and walls, all wall coverings and plaster must be taken off before any work can begin, and all surfaces properly prepared. As soon as this paint has been put on, it must be permitted to dry out completely before replastering any wall surfaces and decorating over the top of it. This is an extremely disruptive job because it has to be applied to a whole basement level or ground floor of a building, and it's recommended that you get more than one specialist opinion about whether this is the only answer to your damp problems.

Due to the fact that dehumidifiers basically mask the cause of the damp and not cure it, there are drawbacks to this option.
