Damp Proofing Denton Greater Manchester (M34)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find details of what may cause problems with damp in your home or business premises in Denton, and exactly how you might set about fixing them.


Penetrating damp in your home can be caused by a whole host of external factors such as: damaged guttering, broken or loose roof tiles, cavity wall issues and unsound brickwork. From within, overflowing sinks or baths, dripping or burst pipes and damaged shower trays, can cause penetrating damp. If left unchecked, peeling or bubbling paintwork, broken or blistered plaster and damp dark patches on walls, will be the noticeable outcome of water seeping into the woodwork and walls.

If you have a leaking roof and it's been neglected for some time, it can cause wet rot in the timbers of your roof. While it's lucky that wet rot does not have an impact on brickwork, in the worst outcome, you may need a new roof (very costly!) if your roof timbers become unsound structurally. If black fungus starts to appear on any woodwork and the roof timbers feel "spongy" to the touch, you could have an issue with wet rot.

You should not fret however, because to prevent these problems from happening, a few straightforward steps like cleaning and checking your rain gutters and roof for leaks, repointing brickwork and inspecting pipework for leaks should avoid such situations. If you employ the expert services of a reliable Denton damp proofing specialist, they'll check all these aspects as part of your complete damp proofing package.


Condensation Damp Denton UK (0161)

Very easy to identify and a cause of damp in many Denton homes, condensation is very common. When moist, warm air comes into contact with cool surfaces, tiny droplets of water rapidly appear. It is an issue due to poor ventilation in areas where there is high humidity, i.e. kitchens, boiler rooms and bathrooms.

To stop condensation issues, simple strategies include making sure that you've got adequate ventilation in the main trouble spots, and wiping away any droplets the moment they arise. This may involve the updating or installation of air bricks, cooker hoods and extractor fans to help redirect the humid air to the outside of your house.

There might be issues with sucking in damp air from outside, and by carrying out a detailed damp proof survey a specialist in Denton will identify circumstances that exacerbate the problem. To satisfactorily control condensation problems, airflow must be properly regulated. A competent Denton damp proofing specialist is well qualified to offer advice and solutions to accomplish this in your home.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Denton Greater Manchester


A damp proof course or membrane has been installed as standard on homes built in Great Britain since 1875. It is possible that you might not have one installed if your home in Denton was built before this year. It's a possibility that your damp proof course or damp proof membrane might have been damaged if you are experiencing rising damp issues in a house built after this year.

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

Rising Damp Denton Greater Manchester

Purely checking your external walls to spot if you have a damp course can be the first step towards fixing your rising damp. It needs to be 150 millimetres (around 6") above ground level for satisfactory protection. If you find that this gap doesn't exist, you could dig the earth away to increase it, or if this approach is not feasible, a higher damp proof membrane will need to be put in.

If this is not the problem and your damp proof membrane (DPM) is in fact correct, there might be more problematic issues to deal with caused by the moisture rising up from the ground beneath, up through your flooring, and into the walls of your home.

Denton damp proofing experts will swiftly be able to determine the main cause of your rising damp issues, and employing a number of procedures will soon fix the problem. If you've got a somewhat older property with no DPM or one that's damaged over a considerable area, a damp proof cream (such as Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall. This special cream is injected with a nozzle into holes drilled evenly along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream cures it turns to liquid and soaks into the surrounding brickwork forming a barrier that is water-repellent.

If the damp proof cream treatment is not suitable, or the damage to your DPM is too extensive, a brand new damp proof course may need to be put in. This is the most drastic of repair works, but it may be the only solution to your rising damp.

The application of a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is yet another potential remedy for smaller areas of damp course damage. Wood flooring, carpets or tiles will need to be lifted before any work can be done, because it is applied beneath your existing floor coverings. Also used as a part of the "tanking" process to make a room watertight, this is an especially efficacious treatment in cellars. For further protection in such problem areas, your Denton damp proof expert may recommend a layer of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried.

Tanking: Tanking a room, like a cellar or basement, is the process of covering exposed surfaces in a watertight paint. All plaster and wall coverings must be taken off and the surfaces in question properly prepared before the commencement of any work, since this waterproof coating has to be applied at the base level of floors and walls. Once this paint has been applied and is dry, it is then possible to replaster and decorate over the top of it. Since it has to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a building, this is a highly disruptive job. Therefore, it is advisable to contact more than one damp proofing expert to guarantee that this is really the only possible remedy.


To help ease problems with condensation, you can try using dehumidifiers, which for reducing the moisture content of the air, are pretty efficacious. Owing to the fact that dehumidifiers just mask the cause of the damp and not cure it, there are disadvantages to this option. A competent damp proofing specialist in Denton will be ready to offer advice on the best solution if you are experiencing dampness in any area of your house.


As with pretty much any project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a professional come from neighbours and friends. Always acquire at least 3 or 4 different quotations from various local companies, and if you're in any doubt you should ask to see professional memberships and qualifications, before signing up for any damp proof services.

Professional Denton damp proofing specialists ought to be members of either the PCA (Property Care Association) or the Damp Proofing Association, or have accreditations from the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments.

You can be certain that your damp proofing provider is properly qualified and has acquired the appropriate experience to provide a first class damp proof service, if they are members of either the DPA or PCA. It also offers guarantees on any remedial work completed by one of their members.
