Damp Proofing Englefield Green Surrey (TW20)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


The next article describes the sources of such damp issues in Englefield Green, and the various techniques for preventing and resolving them.


Issues like cavity wall issues, loose or cracked roof tiles, cracks in brickwork and defective guttering are external factors that can cause penetrating damp in your home. Internally, the causes can be burst or dripping pipes, cracked shower trays and overflowing sinks or baths. If left unchecked, blistering or broken plaster, dark damp patches on walls and flaking paintwork, will be the visible signs of water seeping into the walls and woodwork.

If you have a leaking roof and it's been neglected for some time, it can cause wet rot to develop in your roof timbers. Although it is lucky that wet rot does not have an impact on brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to get a new roof (very expensive!) if the timbers of your roof become structurally unsound. If black fungus appears on your woodwork and the roof timbers feel "spongy" to touch, you might have problems with wet rot.

You should not panic however, since to stop these problems from occurring, a few simple steps such as cleaning and checking your roof and guttering for leaks, inspecting pipework for leaks and repointing brickwork should reduce such concerns. As part of a complete damp proofing service, your local Englefield Green damp proofing company will check out all these aspects.


Condensation Damp Englefield Green UK (01784)

Quite simple to identify and the cause of damp in a lot of Englefield Green properties, condensation is extremely common. When moist, warm air makes contact with cool surfaces (such as windows), minute droplets of water swiftly appear. In areas with high humidity, such as: bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, condensation arises due to poor ventilation.

Redirecting damp air to the outside of your property in Englefield Green, by fitting or updating cooker hoods, air bricks and extractor fans, will help you to eliminate this problem.

The most effective way to establish the key factors that play a role in the problem, is to have a detailed damp proofing survey done by a trusted Englefield Green damp proofing specialist. In some cases damp air can be sucked in from outside, simply making matters even worse. Airflow needs to be properly regulated to successfully minimise condensation, and a competent damp proofing technician will be able to give advice and offer solutions on this question.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Englefield Green Surrey


A damp proof course has been installed as standard on houses constructed in Great Britain since 1875. You may not have a damp proof course on your property in Englefield Green if it was built earlier than this. If your home was constructed after this year, but you're still suffering with rising damp issues, it could be that the damp proof membrane has been damaged.

Rising damp can be notoriously tricky to distinguish, but some areas to look out for are; white powdery deposits being discovered on floor surfaces or appearing on walls, crumbling or rotten skirtings and tide marks on walls. While the existence of these isn't conclusive, they are all clear indicators of rising damp issues.

Rising Damp Englefield Green Surrey

Just checking your external walls to spot if you've got a damp proof course can be one step towards managing your problems with rising damp. In order to get an adequate degree of protection the damp course must be above ground level by a minimum of 150 millimetres (around 6 inches). You can dig away the surrounding earth to create this gap if it is currently not sufficient, or you could install a DPM (damp proof membrane) higher up if the first option is not feasible.

You could have more serious issues if you find that your DPM is OK, and it may be that the moisture is rising up from the ground, up through your flooring, and into your home's walls, which can be even more worrying.

Englefield Green damp proofing professionals will quickly be able to determine the root cause of your rising damp, and employing a variety of techniques will quickly fix the problem. A damp proof cream (such as Permaguard or Dryzone) can be carefully injected into your walls if you've got a somewhat older house with no damp proof course, or one that is damaged over a significant area. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into evenly spaced holes drilled along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream cures it diffuses into the surrounding brickwork creating a barrier that is repellent to water.

If the damage to the membrane is too severe, or if damp proofing cream injection isn't an appropriate treatment, you may have to put in a brand new damp proof course. Though this is naturally a fairly extreme plan of action, it may be the best way to resolve your rising damp issues effectively.

Painting with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is another possible solution for minimal areas of membrane damage. This will be applied under your current floor coverings, so laminate flooring, carpets and tiles must be lifted before any work is done. In cellars this is an especially effective solution, and will form a part of the "tanking" procedure that is used to create watertight spaces. Before the bitumen paint has has dried out completely, your Englefield Green damp proof specialist may recommend laying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane), for added protection.

Tanking: The process of coating exposed surfaces with a watertight paint in a below ground area such as a basement or cellar is known as "tanking". All wall covering and plaster must be taken off and the pertinent surfaces prepared properly before any work begins, since this coating has to be applied on the base surface of floors and walls. You can replaster and decorate over the top, as soon as the paint has dried out completely. You must invariably obtain more than one specialist opinion about whether this is the only remedy for your rising damp, since this is an incredibly disruptive process since it must be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a building.


To help with condensation issues, you can try using dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are fairly effectual. The trouble with dehumidifier use in endeavouring to stop damp is that they primarily mask the cause of the damp, don't cure it. If you are suffering with mould or damp in any area of your home in Englefield Green, you can call on a certified damp proofing specialist for the best advice.
