In Brighouse homes there are 3 primary problem areas of how damp can affect your property:

Damp Proofing Brighouse West Yorkshire (HD6)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These 3 primary forms of damp are outlined in depth in the following paragraphs, along with suggestions for prevention and resolution, in the event you discover them in your property in Brighouse.


Typical external factors that may lead to penetrating damp in your home include: cracks in brickwork, defective guttering, loose or cracked roof tiles and cavity wall problems. Inside, the causes can be burst or dripping pipes, overflowing basins or bathtubs and cracked shower trays. If left to carry on leaking these issues enable water to soak into the walls and woodwork, which over time result in damp dark patches on walls, flaking paintwork and blistering or broken plaster.

If left untreated over a long period of time, a leaky roof can cause wet rot to occur in your roof timbers. Though it can't spread into your brickwork, wet rot can cause the timber in your roof to become structurally unsound, and in the worst case scenario you may even need to replace the whole roof - extremely costly! If black fungus appears on any woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to touch, you might have an issue with wet rot.

Preventative maintenance can be relatively basic, such as repointing brickwork, cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks and inspecting pipework for leaks. An experienced Brighouse damp proof service will check these areas in order to help avoid any future problems, as an element of resolving your issues with damp.


Condensation Damp Brighouse UK (01484)

One of the most common forms of damp in many houses in Brighouse, condensation is super easy to spot. Tiny droplets of water appear on colder surfaces when moist, warm air makes contact with these surfaces. Poor ventilation in places with a high level of humidity, for example in bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, is the most frequent reason behind condensation.

To stop condensation issues, easy strategies include ensuring that you've got enough ventilation in the main trouble spots, and wiping away any droplets of water whenever they appear. Redirecting damp air outside of your property in Brighouse, by installing or upgrading air bricks, cooker hoods and extractors, will help you to solve this annoying problem.

A detailed damp proof survey by a reliable Brighouse specialist could also find areas which contribute to the situation by drawing in moist air from outside. To satisfactorily control condensation, airflow needs to be properly regulated. A certified Brighouse damp proofing specialist will be more than happy to offer solutions and advice in connection with this.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Brighouse West Yorkshire


A damp proof course or membrane has been compulsory on homes constructed in the UK since 1875. You might not have a damp course on your house in Brighouse if it was constructed earlier than this. It is possible that your damp proof course or membrane might have been damaged if you are suffering with rising damp problems in a house built after this year.

Although tricky to identify, rotten or crumbling skirtings, white powdery deposits forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces and "tide marks" on walls, are all giveaway clues that you might have rising damp. It's feasible that you might have a rising damp issue if you've noticed one or all of these in your home.

Rising Damp Brighouse West Yorkshire

Fixing rising damp problems can be as easy as checking your property's exterior walls and seeing if you can see a DPM. It should be 150mm above ground level for adequate protection. If this is not the situation you might be able to dig the ground away to create this space, or if this isn't feasible, you can install a higher DPM (damp proof membrane).

If your damp proof membrane is installed and in order and the gap is not the root cause of the problem, moisture may be coming up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a much more serious issue.

Brighouse damp proofing technicians will swiftly be able to identify the cause of your rising damp, and using a range of techniques will soon take care of the problem. If you've got an older property with no DPM or it is damaged over a significant area, a damp proof cream (such as Permaguard) can be injected into your outside walls. 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 creating a barrier that is water-repellent.

If the damp proof cream treatment isn't appropriate, or the damage to your DPM is too extensive, a brand new damp proof course may need to be installed. This is taking repair work to the extreme, but it could be the only solution to your rising damp.

The application of a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is yet another potential solution for smaller areas of membrane damage. This is applied beneath your current floor coverings, so tiles, carpets and wood flooring will have to be lifted prior to work being undertaken. Also used as a part of the tanking process to create a waterproof space, this is an especially efficacious treatment in cellars. For added protection in such problem areas, your Brighouse damp proof specialist may suggest applying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried.

Tanking: In below ground areas for example cellars, "tanking" is a process where any surfaces that are exposed are covered in a waterproof coating. This should be applied at the base level of walls and floors, and so any wall coverings and plaster must be removed and the pertinent surfaces prepared correctly before any work begins. You can replaster the walls and decorate over the top, after the coating has thoroughly dried out. Since it has to be applied to a whole basement level or ground floor of a building, this is a highly disruptive process. Therefore, it is advisable to seek the advice of at least 2 or 3 damp proofing professionals to make sure that this really is the only effective resolution.


Issues with condensation can definitely be improved through the use of dehumidifiers, which are a highly effective way to remove moisture from the air. The main problem with the use of dehumidifiers in trying to prevent damp and mould is that they only mask the cause of the damp, not cure it. To get the most reliable advice if you're experiencing damp or mould in any area of your house, you should get in touch with a certified damp proofing company in Brighouse.


Family and friends should always be the first port of call when you're looking for recommendations and testimonials for local professionals. When possible you should try to acquire at least 3 or 4 different quotations from a range of companies, and before signing up for any specific damp proofing providers, you should ask to look at professional memberships and qualifications, as proof of their integrity.

Watch out for qualifications and membership from organisations such as the PCA (Property Care Association) or the Damp Proofing Association (DPA), or contractors holding the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments (CSRT) professional qualifications.

Membership of the PCA or DPA guarantees that your preferred damp proofing provider is properly qualified and has acquired the necessary experience to perform a high quality damp proof service. In addition, it offers guarantees on any damp proofing work carried out by one of their membership.
