  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find details about what may be causing damp issues in your home or business premises in Cambuslang, and precisely how you may go about rectifying them.


Problems like damaged guttering, cavity wall problems, cracked or loose roof tiles and unsound brickwork are all external causes of penetrating damp in your home. Inside a structure, damaged shower trays, burst or leaking pipes and overflowing bathtubs or sinks, can contribute to penetrating damp. If left unresolved, blistering or broken plaster, damp dark patches on walls and peeling or bubbling paintwork, will be the obvious upshot of water seeping into the walls and woodwork.

If you have a leaky roof and it has been left untreated over a period of time, it can cause wet rot to develop in the timbers of your roof. While it doesn't spread into brickwork, wet rot can cause your roof timbers to become structurally compromised, and in the worst case you could even need to get a new roof - very expensive! Wet rot can be recognised by black fungus appearing on your woodwork and a "spongy" feel to the wood, coupled with an unfamiliar musty smell from the rotting timber.

You shouldn't panic however, since to prevent these problems from happening, a few straightforward steps such as inspecting pipework for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks should avoid such concerns. A professional Cambuslang damp proof specialist will check all of these areas to help avoid any future complications, as an element of fixing your issues with damp.


Condensation Damp Cambuslang UK (Dialling code	0141)

One of the most common forms of damp in many homes in Cambuslang, condensation is super easy to identify. When cool surfaces make contact with humid, warm air, tiny water droplets appear on those cold surfaces. Inadequate ventilation in places with a high level of humidity, for instance in kitchens, bathrooms and boiler rooms, is the most frequent reason behind condensation.

Basic strategies to stop condensation include wiping up any water droplets as they form and making certain that you've got enough ventilation in the trouble spots. The necessary steps may require the upgrading or installation of air bricks, extractor fans and cooker hoods, with the purpose of redirecting damp air to the outside of your home in Cambuslang.

There might be issues with sucking in damp air from the outside, and by carrying out a detailed damp proof survey a specialist in Cambuslang will identify areas that bring about the situation. Airflow has to be regulated properly to effectively minimise condensation, and a certified damp proofing technician will offer advice and solutions on this matter.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Cambuslang Scotland


A damp proof course has been fitted as standard on homes constructed in Great Britain since 1875. It is quite possible that you might not have one fitted if your house in Cambuslang was constructed before this year. If you're suffering with rising damp in a property built after this period it might be that your damp proof course or membrane has been damaged in some way.

Rising damp can be rather difficult to distinguish, but some things to watch out for are; "tide marks" on walls, white powdery deposits being discovered on floor surfaces or forming on walls and rotten or crumbling skirting boards. It is plausible that you may have a rising damp issue if you've seen one or more of these.

Rising Damp Cambuslang Scotland

Simply checking your home's exterior walls to spot if you've got a damp course can be the first step towards fixing your rising damp problems. For satisfactory protection it needs to be 150mm above the level of the ground. If this isn't the case you may be able to dig away the ground to generate this space, or if this isn't possible, you could put in a higher damp proof course.

If this isn't the cause of the problem and your damp proof membrane (DPM) is in fact correct, there might be more problematic issues to resolve caused by the dampness coming up from the ground, up through your floor, and into the walls of your property.

Using a variety of techniques, damp proofing professionals in Cambuslang can swiftly detect and eliminate rising damp issues. If you have an older house with no damp proof course or one that's damaged over a wide area, a damp proofing cream (such as Permaguard or Dryzone) can be injected into your external walls. Evenly spaced holes are drilled at intervals in the brickwork, and a nozzle is used to inject the special cream, which then diffuses before curing to form an effective, horizontal water-repellent barrier.

If the damage to the damp course membrane is too critical, or if damp proofing cream injection is not a satisfactory treatment, you might need to install a new damp proof course. Unfortunately this is taking repair work to the extreme, but it could be the only solution to your rising damp.

Damp Proofers Cambuslang (G72)

For minimal areas of membrane damage, another possible remedy would be to coat with a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion. As this will be applied under your current floor coverings, tiles, wooden flooring and carpets must be lifted before this operation can commence. In basement areas this is a particularly effectual treatment, and will form an integral part of the tanking process that's used to make rooms watertight. Before the bitumen coating has has dried out completely, your Cambuslang damp proofing expert might advise the laying of building paper (a special foil backed membrane), for extra protection.

Tanking: In cellars, basements and below ground areas of a property, tanking is a process where exposed surfaces are painted with a watertight coating. Any plaster and wall coverings must be removed and the surfaces properly prepared before the commencement of any work, since this watertight coating has to be applied on the base surface of walls and floors. You can replaster and decorate on top of it, as soon as the paint has thoroughly dried out. Because it needs to be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a building, this is an incredibly disruptive process. It is therefore recommended that you contact at least two or three damp proofing companies to guarantee that this is really the only effective remedy.


Dehumidifiers are an effective way to remove moisture from the air, so for problems with condensation they can help quite a lot. The fact that they only cover up the cause of the damp and not cure it, is the main problem with dehumidifier use. A reliable damp proofing company in Cambuslang will be ready to give you advice on the best solution if you're suffering from mould or damp in any part of your home.


As with pretty much any project, the most reliable recommendations for a local specialist can be obtained from friends and family. Always get at least 2 or 3 different quotations from various companies, and if you've got any doubts you can ask to see evidence of professional memberships and qualifications, before signing up to any damp proofing services.

Professional Cambuslang damp proofing specialists should be signed up members of either the PCA (Property Care Association) or the Damp Proofing Association, or have qualifications from the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments.

Membership of either the DPA or PCA guarantees that your chosen damp proofing provider is properly qualified and has the necessary experience to offer a first class damp proofing service. Such memberships also means that there are certain guarantees for any work carried out.

Friends & Family Recommendations

It is always a good idea when you're looking for a professional contractor for your project to ask if friends and relatives have any recommendations. To find someone who's perfect for your needs, and to filter out inferior contractors and companies that have poor service records, personal referrals are usually the best way to go.

Friends and Family Recommendations for Damp Proofing

If you're aware that an acquaintance or member of your family has used a specific contractor, you can get a bit of first hand insights into their punctuality and reliability. They should also be able to tell you if anything went wrong, and how rapidly any mistakes were resolved. They should also be able to tell you whether the contractor offered a guaranteed price promise for their work, and if they didn't, how accurate the eventual price was when compared with the original quotation.

At the end of the day, in relation to advice, your friends and relations are individuals you know and trust to be honest. It's likely that they've had a poor experience, if they are unwilling to chat about a particular company or contractor. It is frequently the case that some people will be more than willing to speak about a good quality contractor, but less inclined to discuss an inferior one, and rather than 'malign' a a below par business they have dealt with in the past, they might even suggest an alternative company instead.
