  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp

 

These 3 primary kinds of damp are outlined in more detail below, along with recommendations for prevention and resolution, in case you discover them in your house in Bishopbriggs.

PENETRATING DAMP

Penetrating damp in your home can be attributable to a range of external factors for instance: broken or loose roof tiles, cracks in brickwork, defective guttering and cavity wall issues. Internally, it can be created by cracked shower trays, burst or dripping pipes and overflowing basins or baths. If left to carry on leaking these elements enable water to seep into the walls and woodwork, which with time result in damp dark patches on walls, flaking or bubbling paintwork and blistered or broken plaster.

If you have a leaking roof and it has been neglected for a while, it can cause wet rot to develop in the timbers of your roof. While it cannot spread into your brickwork, wet rot can cause the timber in your roof to become structurally dangerous, and in a worst case scenario you could even need to replace the entire roof - extremely costly! If black fungus starts to appear on any woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to touch, you might have problems with wet rot.

Preventative measures can be fairly basic, such as cleaning and checking your roof and guttering for leaks, inspecting pipes for leaks and repointing brickwork. If you employ the services of a certified Bishopbriggs damp proofing specialist, they will check all these factors as a part of your complete damp proofing package.

CONDENSATION

Condensation Damp Bishopbriggs UK (Dialling code	0141)

Super easy to spot and a contributing factor to damp in a lot of Bishopbriggs homes, condensation is very common. Tiny droplets of water form on cooler surfaces when warm, moist air makes contact with these surfaces. In places where high humidity is present, as in: boiler rooms, kitchens and bathrooms, it's often caused because of inadequate ventilation.

To stop condensation problems, basic strategies include ensuring that you have sufficient ventilation in the worst affected areas, and wiping up any water droplets as soon as they form. The steps needed might involve the upgrading or installation of cooker hoods, extractors and air bricks, with the purpose of redirecting humid air outside of your home in Bishopbriggs.

There could be issues with drawing in damp air from the outside, and by completing a detailed damp proofing survey an expert in Bishopbriggs will be able to identify circumstances that play a role in the situation. Airflow has to be properly regulated to effectively minimise condensation, and a competent damp proofing specialist will offer advice and solutions on this question.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Bishopbriggs Scotland

RISING DAMP

Homes constructed since 1875 in Great Britain have required a damp proof course to be fitted as standard. If your home was built before this period it's possible you might not have one installed. If your property was constructed after this year, but you're still suffering with rising damp, it might be that your damp proof membrane has been compromised.

Although difficult to distinguish, tide marks on walls, rotten or crumbling skirting boards and a white powdery deposit forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces, are all giveaway signs of rising damp. If you notice or think you might have any of these signs, it is possible you have a problem with rising damp.

Rising Damp Bishopbriggs Scotland

The first step towards handling your problems with rising damp should simply be to check whether or not you've got a damp course on the external walls of your property in Bishopbriggs. To be certain of an adequate degree of protection the damp course must be above ground level by at least 150mm. Where you find that this space doesn't exist, you could dig away the ground to increase it, or if this approach is not possible, a higher damp proof membrane will need to be installed.

You could have more serious issues if you discover that your damp course is OK, and it could be that the damp is rising from the ground, up through your flooring, and into the walls, which will be an even more worrying predicament.

Damp proofing technicians in Bishopbriggs will quickly identify and remedy rising damp issues using a range of techniques. A damp proofing cream (such as Permaguard or Dryzone) can be injected into your walls if you've got an older house with no DPM, or one that is damaged over a significant area. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into holes drilled at intervals along the wall's mortar joint, and before the cream can cure it diffuses into the surrounding brickwork forming a barrier that is repellent to water.

If the damage to your membrane is too severe, or if damp proofing injection cream isn't a satisfactory solution, you might need to install a new damp proof course. Although this is of course a pretty extreme plan of action, it could be the best way to remedy your rising damp in an effective way.

Damp Proofers Bishopbriggs (G64)

The application of a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is another possible solution for smaller areas of damp course damage. This will be applied under your floor coverings, so tiles, wood flooring and carpets must be lifted before any work can be done. Also used as an integral part of the tanking procedure to create a waterproof space, this is a particularly effective solution in cellars. Before the bitumen coating has completely dried, your Bishopbriggs damp proof specialist may suggest laying building paper (a special foil backed membrane), for extra protection.

Tanking: The process of covering exposed surfaces with a waterproof paint in a cellar or below ground area is known as tanking. All wall coverings and plaster must be taken off and the surfaces prepared correctly before any work begins, because this watertight coating has to be applied at the base level of walls and floors. You can replaster and decorate over it, after the paint has completely dried. As it must be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a property, this is an incredibly disruptive job. It is therefore advisable to seek the advice of more than one damp proofing expert to guarantee that this is really the only remedy.

SOLVING DAMP PROBLEMS WITH DEHUMIDIFIERS

To help ease condensation problems, you can always try dehumidifiers, which for reducing the moisture content of the air, are really effective. Owing to the fact that dehumidifiers basically mask the cause of the damp and not get rid of it, there are disadvantages to this option. If you are suffering from damp in any part of your home in Bishopbriggs, you should get in touch with a certified damp proofing specialist for the best advice.
