Damp Proofing Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire (S63)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


The following paragraphs describe the sources of such damp issues in Bolton-upon-Dearne, and the various ways of avoiding and resolving them.


External issues that can lead to penetrating damp include: unsound brickwork, defective drainpipes or guttering, broken roof tiles and blocked cavity walls. Inside a structure, cracked shower trays, dripping or burst pipes and overflowing basins or bathtubs, can lead to penetrating damp. If left to continue leaking these elements allow water to seep into walls and woodwork, which over time create peeling paintwork, dark, damp patches on walls and broken or blistered plaster.

If you've got a leaking roof that's been neglected for a while, the timbers of your roof can be affected by wet rot. Wet rot can't spread into the brickwork, but it can mean that in the worst case scenario your roof timbers become structurally dangerous, necessitating a new roof. A musty, unpleasant smell of rotten wood, the appearance of black fungus, and a "spongy" feel to your roof timbers, are all signs of wet rot.

The means of prevention can be pretty basic, for instance cleaning your roof & gutters and checking for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and inspecting pipes for leaks. As an integral part of a complete damp proofing service, your local Bolton-upon-Dearne damp proofing specialist will check all these areas.

One of the most common reasons for dampness is condensation, and lots of properties in Bolton-upon-Dearne have problems with this. Water collects as tiny droplets on a cold surface, when moist, warm air comes into contact with it.

You can wipe away any droplets of water as soon as they appear, and you can ensure that there is ample ventilation in areas that most suffer from condensation. To help remove the humid air from your house, you may need to upgrade or fit cooker hoods, air bricks and extractors.

By performing an exhaustive damp proofing survey, an experienced Bolton-upon-Dearne company will identify any areas where moist air is drawn in from the outside, simply making things worse. In order to manage condensation issues, it is essential that circulation and airflow in the home is regulated correctly, and by talking to an expert in this industry, you can get advice and guidance for fixing these issues.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire


Since 1875, a damp proof course or membrane has been compulsory in all houses constructed in the United Kingdom. If your house was built before this period it's possible that you might not have this installed. If your property was constructed after this year, but you're still experiencing rising damp problems, it might be that your damp proof membrane has been compromised.

If you suppose that you may have rising damp, a white powdery deposit being found on floor surfaces or forming on walls, crumbling or rotten skirting boards and tide marks on walls, are fair indications that you might be correct. If you see or think you may have any of these, it is possible you have a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire

Solving rising damp problems can be as straightforward as checking your home's outside walls to see if you can see a damp course. For satisfactory protection it needs to be 150 millimetres (about six inches) above ground level. You can dig away the surrounding ground to generate this space if it is currently not sufficient, or you could put in a higher damp proof membrane if the first option isn't possible.

You could have more problematic issues if you discover that your damp course is fine, and it may be that the damp is rising up from the ground, up through your flooring, and into your property's walls, which can be even more worrying.

Damp proofing professionals in Bolton-upon-Dearne can quickly detect and remedy rising damp problems using a number of techniques. If you've got an older house with no damp proof course or one that's damaged over an extensive area, a damp proof cream (such as Dryzone) can be injected into your external walls. This entails the drilling of holes at intervals into your brickwork and the special cream injected with a nozzle to fill the spaces behind the brickwork.

If the damage to your membrane is too extensive, or if damp proofing cream injection is not a suitable solution, you might need to put in a brand new damp proof course. This is the most extreme of repair works, but it might be the only remedy for your rising damp.

The application of a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is yet another possible option for minimal areas of damp course damage. This is applied beneath your current floor coverings, so wood flooring, tiles and carpets must be lifted before any work is done. In basements this is an especially efficacious solution, and will form a part of the tanking process which is used to make spaces watertight. Before the bitumen coating has completely dried out, your Bolton-upon-Dearne damp proofing technician might advise laying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane), for additional protection.

Tanking: Tanking an area, like a cellar or part below ground area, is a process of covering exposed surfaces in a waterproof paint. Because this coating needs to be applied to the base surface of walls and floors, all plaster and wall covering must be removed before any work can begin, and all surfaces properly prepared. Once the paint has been applied and is dry, it's then possible to replaster any wall surfaces and decorate on top of it. Since it has to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a property, this is a very disruptive process. It's therefore advisable to contact more than one damp proofing expert to ensure that this is really the only possible remedy.


To help with condensation issues, you can always try dehumidifiers, which for lowering the moisture content of the air, are very efficacious. The fact that they basically mask the cause of the damp and don't cure it, is the main downside with dehumidifiers. To obtain the most reliable advice if you're suffering from damp or mould in any area of your property, you should contact a professional damp proofing specialist in Bolton-upon-Dearne.


As with just about any project, the best recommendations for a professional come from family and friends. Before hiring any damp proof services, always try to obtain at least three quotations from different Bolton-upon-Dearne companies. If you have any doubts about any company you should ask to look at qualifications and professional membership certificates.

Keep an eye out for membership of and qualifications from trade bodies such as the Damp Proofing Association (DPA) or the Property Care Association, or contractors holding the Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness or the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments (CSRT) professional qualifications.

If your selected Bolton-upon-Dearne damp proofing specialists are members of the DPA or PCA you can be sure they will be properly qualified and have acquired the necessary practical experience to offer you a top notch service for your damp proofing project. Such memberships also means that there are certain guarantees for any remedial work completed.

Condensation Control

The control of condensation plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy and pleasant indoor environment. Condensation occurs when warm, moisture-laden air comes into contact with cooler surfaces, leading to the formation of water droplets. Inadequate control of condensation can result in damage to building materials, mould growth, and the deterioration of indoor air quality. To control condensation, good ventilation is essential to regulate humidity levels and promote the circulation of air. The use of double-glazing and insulation assists in reducing temperature differentials and minimising condensation. Through effective condensation management, potential problems can be avoided, resulting in a more pleasant living or working environment.

Reducing temperature differentials and minimising condensation are two things that insulation and double-glazed windows can help with. Insulation is a thermal barrier that prevents cold surfaces from coming into direct contact with moist, warm air. The likelihood of condensation forming on surfaces like walls, windows and ceilings is decreased by this temperature difference reduction. Double-glazed windows are effective at maintaining an even interior temperature, which inhibits condensation. They feature 2 panes of glass with an insulating layer between. (23095)
