Damp Proofing Goldthorpe South Yorkshire (S63)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


The following paragraphs describe the sources of such problems with damp in Goldthorpe, and the different methods of avoiding and solving them.


There are various external issues that can cause penetrating damp, and included in these are: unsound brickwork, damaged gutters or downpipes, loose or cracked roof tiles and blocked cavity walls. Inside your Goldthorpe home, penetrating damp can be a result of overflowing basins or bathtubs, damaged shower trays and burst or leaky pipes. Woodwork and walls can be affected if left unresolved, and will be visible as broken or blistered plaster, peeling or bubbling paintwork and dark, damp patches on walls.

If left untreated for an extended period of time, a leaking roof can cause wet rot to arise in the timbers of your roof. Even though bricks and brickwork are not affected by wet rot, the timbers of your roof can be seriously damaged, and the whole roof may need to be replaced if it becomes structurally unsound. A unique musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your roof timbers and indications of black fungus growth, could all indicate the presence of wet rot.

The measures for prevention can be quite basic, for instance examining pipes for leaks, repointing brickwork and cleaning your roof & rain gutters and checking for leaks. A professional damp proofer in Goldthorpe will check these areas in order to help avoid any further problems, as an integral part of solving your issues with damp.


Condensation Damp Goldthorpe UK (01709)

A lot of properties in Goldthorpe suffer from condensation problems, and this is among the most common factors behind damp. When humid, warm air makes contact with a cool surface, water forms as tiny droplets. If there isn't enough ventilation in areas with a high level of humidity, such as bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, condensation can frequently result.

To avoid condensation problems, basic strategies include ensuring that you have sufficient ventilation in the worst affected areas, and wiping away any droplets of water whenever they arise. This may involve the updating or installation of extractor fans, cooker hoods and air bricks to help reroute the humid air outside of your house.

To find areas which contribute to the issue by drawing in moist air from the outside, an established Goldthorpe damp proofing company will undertake an in-depth damp proofing survey. Circulation and airflow must be properly regulated to adequately minimise condensation problems, and a knowledgeable damp proofing technician will offer advice and solutions on this topic.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Goldthorpe South Yorkshire


Homes built since 1875 in the UK have been required to have a damp proof course or membrane to be fitted as standard. You might not have a damp proof course installed on your house in Goldthorpe if it was constructed earlier than this. It is possible that your DPM might have been damaged in some way if you are suffering with rising damp issues in a home built after this year.

Rising damp can be rather difficult to identify, but some areas to watch out for are; a white powdery deposit being discovered on floor surfaces or appearing on walls, "tide marks" on walls and rotten or crumbling skirting boards. It's feasible that you could have a rising damp problem if you've seen one or more of these.

Rising Damp Goldthorpe South Yorkshire

The initial step towards handling your problems with rising damp should simply be to check whether you have a damp proof course on the external walls of your property in Goldthorpe. For satisfactory protection it needs to be 150mm (approximately 6") above the level of the ground. You can dig the surrounding soil away to generate this gap if it is currently not enough, or you can install a higher damp proof membrane (DPM) if the first option isn't feasible.

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

Goldthorpe damp proofing experts will quickly be able to ascertain the cause of your rising damp, and employing a range of techniques will quickly fix the problem. A damp proofing cream can be carefully injected into your wall if you have an older property with no damp proof course, or one that's damaged over a considerable area. This special cream is injected with a nozzle into holes drilled along the mortar joint, and before the cream sets it turns into liquid and soaks into the surrounding brickwork creating a barrier that is water-repellent.

If the deterioration of your damp course membrane is too drastic, or if damp proofing cream isn't a suitable solution, you might have to install a brand new damp proof course. While this sort of repair work is a fairly extreme way to solve damp problems, it could be your only effective solution at the end of the day.

For less severe areas of damp course damage, another potential remedy could be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion. This will be applied under your current floor coverings, so tiles, carpeting and laminate flooring will need to be lifted prior to work being undertaken. Also used as an integral part of the "tanking" process to make a space watertight, this is a particularly effectual treatment in cellars. For extra protection in such problem areas, your Goldthorpe damp proof expert may suggest the use of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen paint has has dried out completely.

Tanking: In areas of a house that are below ground, like basements or cellars, tanking is a process where any exposed surfaces are painted with a waterproof coating. Any plaster and wall covering must be taken off and the surfaces in question properly prepared before work commences, since this coating must be applied on the base surface of walls and floors. You can replaster and decorate over the top of it, as soon as the paint has dried completely. This is a highly disruptive process because it needs to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a building, and it is wise to get more than one expert opinion on whether this is the only resolution to your rising damp.


To help with condensation problems, you can always try dehumidifiers, which for reducing the moisture content of the air, are pretty efficacious. The main issue with the use of dehumidifiers in seeking to prevent dampness is that they basically cover up the cause of the damp, don't cure it. If you are suffering with mould or damp in any part of your home in Goldthorpe, you can call on an experienced damp proofing specialist for the most reliable advice.


The most trustworthy recommendations for professionals when it comes to home improvement projects are generally neighbours and friends. If possible you should try to get at least 2 or 3 different quotes from a variety of companies, and before employing any specific damp proofing services, you can ask to look at professional membership certificates and accreditations, as a verification of their integrity.

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

You can be sure that your damp proofing specialist is properly qualified and has the appropriate practical experience to provide you with a high quality damp proofing service, if they've got membership of the DPA or PCA. Any remedial work performed by one of their members also comes with a guarantee.
