  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


In paragraphs that follow, we will look at what causes such damp problems, and ways that you can go about solving them, and stopping them from happening in the first place.


There are various exterior issues that can lead to penetrating damp, and these include such things as: damaged or porous brickwork, broken roof tiles, blocked cavity walls and defective downpipes or guttering. Inside your property, it can also be the result of overflowing sinks or bathtubs, burst or leaking water pipes and cracked shower trays. If left to carry on leaking these things enable water to seep into the walls and woodwork, which in time result in damp, dark patches on walls, blistered or broken plaster and flaking paintwork.

You can get wet rot developing in the timbers of your roof, if you have a leaking roof, and it's been left untreated for some time. Although brickwork is not impacted by wet rot, the timbers of your roof can experience severe consequences, and the whole roof may need to be replaced if it becomes structurally unsound. A musty smell of rotting wood, the presence of black fungus, and a "spongy" feel to your roof timbers, are all warning signs that wet rot is already a problem. To prevent further structural harm and the potential for costly roof replacement, it's essential to swiftly deal with the issue when you spot any of these wet rot signs.

You need not panic however, since to stop these problems happening, a few basic steps like cleaning and checking your rain gutters & roof for leaks, inspecting pipework for leaks and repointing dodgy brickwork, should reduce such issues. An experienced damp proofer in Cambuslang will check all of these areas to help avoid any further complications, as an integral part of solving your issues with damp.


Condensation Damp Cambuslang UK (Dialling code	0141)

Condensation is extremely easy to spot and one of the most common forms of damp within many homes in Cambuslang. Water forms as tiny droplets on a cool surface, when humid, warm air comes into contact with it. If there is not adequate ventilation in areas with a high level of humidity, such as kitchens, boiler rooms and bathrooms, condensation can often be the result.

To reduce condensation problems, easy solutions include ensuring that there's sufficient ventilation in the affected areas, and wiping up any droplets the moment they form. Redirecting moist air outside of your home in Cambuslang, by upgrading or fitting extractors, air bricks and cooker hoods, will help you to resolve this annoying problem.

In some cases moist air can be sucked in from the outside, simply making matters even worse. And the best way to ascertain the main circumstances that contribute to the problem, is to have a detailed damp proofing survey done by a trusted Cambuslang damp proofing company. So as to control condensation problems, it is vital that airflow and circulation within the home is regulated properly, and by talking to an expert on this topic, you will get advice and information for fixing these problems.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Cambuslang Scotland


A damp proof course has been fitted as standard on houses constructed in Great Britain since 1875. If your home or property was constructed before this time it's conceivable you may not have one installed. It's a possibility that your damp proof course or membrane could have been damaged somehow if you are experiencing rising damp issues in a house built after this year.

Rising damp can be notoriously difficult to identify, but some areas to look for are; a white powdery deposit forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces, rotten or crumbling skirtings and "tide marks" on walls. If you notice or think that you might have any of these signs, it's possible you have a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Cambuslang Scotland

The first step towards managing your rising damp should simply be to check whether or not you have in fact got a DPM on the exterior walls of your home in Cambuslang. For adequate protection it must be 150mm above the level of the ground. You could dig away the surrounding ground to create this gap if it is currently not enough, or you could put in a higher damp proof course if the former isn't possible.

If this isn't the problem and your damp proof membrane (DPM) is in order, there might be more serious issues to deal with caused by the dampness rising up from the ground beneath, up through your flooring, and into the walls of your home.

Using a number of different methods, damp proofing technicians in Cambuslang will quickly identify and remedy rising damp issues. A damp proof cream (such as Dryzone or Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall if you've got a somewhat older property with no damp proof course, or it is damaged over an extensive area. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into holes drilled at intervals along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream sets it turns into liquid and penetrates into the adjoining brickwork forming a barrier that is water-repellent.

If the deterioration of the DPM is too drastic, or if damp proofing cream injection isn't a satisfactory treatment, you might have to install a brand new damp proof course. Though this is naturally a pretty extreme approach, it may be the only way to solve your damp problems effectively.

The application of a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is yet another possible remedy for less severe areas of damp course damage. Wood flooring, tiles or carpets will need to be lifted before any work is done, as it is applied under your floor coverings. This is especially effective in basements as part of the "tanking" process to create a watertight room. Your Cambuslang damp proof expert may suggest the laying of building paper (a special foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried out, extra protection in these problem areas.

Tanking: "Tanking" is a specific method used for making cellars or other below-ground areas waterproof, involving the application of a special watertight paint on exposed surfaces. To ensure effective application, all existing wall coverings and plaster must first be removed, allowing the waterproof coating to be directly applied to the base of walls and floors. This step is crucial for creating an impermeable barrier against moisture. Once applied, it's essential to allow the coating to dry completely, a process that can take some time, before proceeding with replastering and any decorative finishes. This method, however, is quite invasive, requiring the treatment of the entire lower level of a property. Therefore, it's advisable to consult with several damp proofing companies to determine if tanking is indeed the best solution for your specific rising damp issues. There may be alternative, less disruptive methods available that could be equally effective. Given the scale and potential disruption of tanking, it's important to consider all options and understand the long-term implications of such a treatment on your property.


Issues with condensation can definitely be helped through the use of dehumidifiers, which are a highly efficacious way to remove moisture from the air. Due to the fact that dehumidifiers primarily hide the cause of the damp and don't cure it, there are issues with this option. To get the most reliable advice if you're suffering from damp or mould in any area of your property, you can contact a certified damp proofing specialist in Cambuslang.


As with pretty much any project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a local specialist can be obtained from friends and relations. When possible you should see if you can acquire at least two or three different quotes from a variety of companies, and before signing up for any particular damp proof providers, you can ask to see qualifications and professional memberships, as proof of their trustworthiness.

Keep an eye out for contractors holding the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) professional qualifications, or companies who are registered members of the Property Care Association (PCA) or the DPA (Damp Proofing Association).

If your chosen Cambuslang damp proofing providers are members of the PCA or DPA they will be properly qualified and have acquired the necessary working experience to offer you a high quality service for all your damp proofing needs. Such memberships also means there are certain guarantees for any remedial work undertaken.

In Cambuslang, preserving the aesthetic appeal and structural integrity of your property demands timely Damp Proof Course (DPC) replacement.
