  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


To understand what the likely reasons behind such damp problems are, and how to resolve them, keep on reading...


Typical external factors that can cause penetrating damp include: cracked roof tiles, defective downpipes or guttering, blocked cavity walls and damaged or porous brickwork. Inside your Godstone property, it can be the result of damaged shower trays, overflowing sinks or baths and burst or leaky pipework. If water is allowed to continue seeping into the woodwork and walls, the obvious signs with time will be dark, damp patches on walls, peeling or bubbling paintwork and blistering or broken plaster.

Roofing timbers which are constantly damp due to a leaking roof, can develop wet rot if this is not dealt with. Despite the fact that brickwork isn't affected by wet rot, the timbers on your roof can experience severe consequences, and if it becomes structurally unsound, the whole roof might need to be replaced. If a black fungus appears on any woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to the touch, you could have an issue with wet rot.

To help in preventing this, there are a few basic measures you can take: inspecting pipes for leaks, cleaning your roof & rain gutters and checking for leaks and repointing dodgy brickwork. As an integral part of solving your damp problems, a competent Godstone damp proofing specialist will check these areas, in order to help reduce the chances of any further issues.


Condensation Damp Godstone UK (01883)

Very easy to spot and a contributing factor to damp in a lot of Godstone properties, condensation is very common. When a cold surface makes contact with moist, warm air, water collects as droplets upon that surface. In places with high humidity, such as: kitchens, boiler rooms and bathrooms, it forms because of inadequate ventilation.

Easy strategies to reduce condensation include wiping up any droplets as they form and ensuring that there's enough ventilation in the trouble spots. To help expell the moist air from your building, you might need to fit or upgrade cooker hoods, extractors and air bricks.

There could possibly be issues with drawing in moist air from the outside, and by performing a detailed damp proofing survey an expert in Godstone will be able to identify circumstances that bring about the problem. It's crucial that circulation and airflow is properly regulated, in order to minimise condensation problems, and you can obtain information and advice on this from a damp proofing expert.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Godstone Surrey


A damp proof course has been installed as standard on houses built in the United Kingdom since 1875. If your property or home was built before this period it's conceivable that you may not have this installed. If your home was constructed after this date, but you're still suffering with rising damp problems, it may be that your damp proof membrane or course has been damaged.

It can be rather difficult to distinguish rising damp, nevertheless some giveaway indications are; rotten or crumbling skirting boards, tide marks on walls and a white powdery deposit appearing on walls or being found on floor surfaces. If you see or think you might have any of these signs, it is possible that you've got a problem with rising damp.

Rising Damp Godstone Surrey

The initial step towards fixing your rising damp problems should be to simply check whether you've actually got a DPM on the exterior walls of your property in Godstone. For satisfactory protection it needs to be 150 millimetres (approximately 6") above the level of the ground. If this is not the case you may be able to dig the ground away to create this space, or if this is not plausible, you could install a damp proof membrane higher up.

If this is not the root cause of the problem and your DPM (damp proof membrane) is correct, there might be more challenging issues to resolve caused by the dampness rising up from the ground beneath, up through your floor, and into the walls.

Godstone damp proofing professionals will quickly be able to figure out the cause of your rising damp, and using a range of methods will quickly eliminate the problem. Older properties which either have no damp proof course, or have one which is damaged over a considerable area, can have a damp proof cream (such as Permaguard) injected into the exterior walls. Holes will be drilled at intervals along the mortar course, and a nozzle is used to inject the special cream, which then penetrates into the surrounding brickwork before curing to create an effective, horizontal waterproof barrier.

If the damage to the damp course membrane is too extensive, or if damp proofing injection cream is not a suitable solution, you might have to put in a new damp proof course. While this sort of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve damp issues, it could be your only effective solution in the final analysis.

For minimal areas of damp course damage, another potential remedy would be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion paint. Carpets, laminate flooring or tiles will need to be lifted prior to work being carried out, as it's applied underneath your current floor coverings. Also used as an integral part of the "tanking" procedure to make a room watertight, this is an especially effective solution in basements. Before the bitumen paint has dried completely, your Godstone damp proofing technician might suggest laying building paper (a foil backed specialist membrane), for extra protection.

Tanking: Tanking an area, like a basement or cellar, is a process of covering exposed surfaces with a watertight paint. As this waterproof coating must be applied on the bare surface of floors and walls, all plaster and wall coverings must be removed before any work can commence, and the pertinent surfaces properly prepared. You can replaster and decorate over the top of it, after the coating has thoroughly dried out. Because it must be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a property, this is a very disruptive process. It's therefore recommended that you contact more than one damp proofing specialist to guarantee that this is really the only effective remedy.


Dehumidifiers are an efficient way of lowering the moisture content in the air, hence for problems with condensation they can help quite a bit. Due to the fact that dehumidifiers basically hide the cause of the damp and not cure it, there are disadvantages to this option. A certified damp proofing company in Godstone will be ready to give you advice on possible solutions if you are experiencing damp in any area of your house.


As with just about any home improvement project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a local professional can be obtained from friends and neighbours. Always acquire at least two or three different quotes from various companies, and if you've got any doubts you can ask to see evidence of professional memberships and accreditations, before hiring any damp proof services.

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

Membership of the PCA or DPA guarantees that your preferred damp proofing specialist is suitably qualified and has acquired the appropriate experience to provide a first class damp proof service. In addition, it offers guarantees on any remedial work carried out by one of their membership.

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) Godstone

PIV (Positive Input Ventilation) might be the perfect solution for reducing damp issues within your house in Godstone. If you have noticed mould and damp inside your home or condensation on your windows then Positive Input Ventilation can help to reduce the humidity. It accomplishes this by continually supplying a flow of fresh air. This continual refresh and replacement of the air inside your home increases air quality, reduces odours and pollutants and has been proven to enhance the everyday life of asthma and allergy sufferers by reducing dust mite allergens in the air. One thing about PIV systems is that it works better when installed in a loft, and your property does have to be fairly airtight. Air, like water, takes the path of least resistance, and any gaps around doors or windows will let the fresh air get out, whilst bringing possible contaminated air in.
