  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find details about what could be causing problems with damp in your home in Haydock, and exactly how you may proceed with fixing them.


Issues like cracked roof tiles, damaged guttering, cavity wall problems and unsound brickwork are commonplace external factors of penetrating damp. Inside your Haydock home, it can result from leaky or burst pipes, overflowing sinks or bathtubs and cracked shower trays. If left to continue leaking these factors enable water to soak into the woodwork and walls, which with time result in blistered or broken plaster, peeling or bubbling paintwork and damp dark patches on walls.

If you have a leaky roof and it's been neglected for an extended period of time, it can cause wet rot in your roof timbers. Whilst it's fortunate that wet rot doesn't affect brickwork, in the worst outcome, you may need to replace the whole roof if your roof timbers become structurally unsound. Wet rot can be recognised by the appearance of black fungus on your woodwork and a spongy feel to the wood, coupled with an unusual musty smell from the decaying timber.

Simple steps like cleaning and checking your guttering and roof for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and inspecting pipes for leaks, will be the basic preventative measures. If you use the services of a knowledgeable Haydock damp proofing provider, they will check all these elements as part of your overall damp proofing package.


Condensation Damp Haydock UK (01942)

Condensation is super easy to spot and is one of the most common forms of damp in many buildings in Haydock. When cooler surfaces come into contact with warm, humid air, minute droplets of water form on those surfaces. It is an issue because of inadequate ventilation in places where there's high humidity, i.e. boiler rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

To reduce condensation problems, basic strategies include ensuring you have adequate ventilation in the worst affected areas, and wiping up any water droplets the moment they arise. This may involve the installation or upgrade of air bricks, extractors and cooker hoods to help reroute the moist air to the outside of the building.

The most effective way to establish the key things that play a role in the situation, is to have a detailed damp proofing survey done by a dependable Haydock specialist. With some homes damp air can be sucked in from the outside, plainly making matters even worse. The most effective way to successfully control condensation is to properly regulate airflow, and your local Haydock damp proofing specialist will offer guidance and advice on how this can be achieved.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Haydock Merseyside


A damp proof course has been compulsory on homes constructed in Great Britain since 1875. If your property was built before this period it's perfectly possible that you may not have this installed. If you are suffering with rising damp in a house constructed after this time it's possible your damp proof course or membrane has been damaged somehow.

It can be notoriously tricky to identify rising damp, but some giveaway signs are; tide marks on walls, a white powdery deposit being found on floor surfaces or forming on walls and rotten or crumbling skirting boards. Although the existence of these is not conclusive, they're all clear indicators of rising damp issues.

Rising Damp Haydock Merseyside

Fixing rising damp problems can be as simple as checking your property's external walls to see if you can see a damp proof course. For satisfactory protection it must be 150mm (around six inches) above the level of the ground. If this is not the situation you might be able to dig the ground away to generate this space, or if this is not plausible, you can install a damp course higher up.

If your damp proof membrane (DPM) is in order and the gap isn't the explanation for the problem, dampness might be rising up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a more serious issue.

Haydock damp proofing technicians will swiftly be able to identify the root cause of your rising damp, and employing a variety of techniques will soon deal with the problem. A damp proof cream (such as Dryzone) can be injected into your wall if you've got a somewhat older property with no damp proof course, or one that is damaged over a wide area. Evenly spaced holes are drilled at intervals in the mortar course, and a nozzle is used to inject the special cream, which then diffuses before curing to create an effective water-repellent barrier.

If the damp proofing cream isn't suitable, or the damage to your DPM is too extensive, a brand new damp proof course might have to be put in. Whilst this sort of repair work is a fairly extreme way to solve rising damp issues, it may be your only real solution when all is said and done.

For less severe areas of damage, another potential option could be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion paint. Because this is going to be applied underneath your floor coverings, wooden flooring, tiles and carpeting will have to be lifted and put aside before this procedure can commence. Also used as an integral part of the "tanking" procedure to create a waterproof room, this is a particularly efficacious solution in basement areas. Your Haydock damp proof technician may advise a layer of building paper (a foil backed specialist membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried, additional protection in such problem areas.

Tanking: In basements and below ground areas of a property, "tanking" is a process where surfaces that are exposed are covered in a waterproof coating. Any plaster and wall coverings must be taken off and the appropriate surfaces prepared properly before any work begins, because this coating has to be applied on the base surface of walls and floors. You can replaster and decorate over the top of it, as soon as the coating has dried completely. You should always obtain more than one expert opinion about whether this really is the only solution to your rising damp issues, because this is an incredibly disruptive job since it has to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a property.


To help ease issues with condensation, you could try using dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are fairly effective. Owing to the fact that dehumidifiers merely cover up the cause of the damp and don't get rid of it, there are disadvantages to this option. A professional damp proofing specialist in Haydock will be ready to offer advice on the best solution if you are experiencing mould or damp in any part of your property.


The best recommendations for specialists with regards to home improvement projects are normally friends and relatives. Before employing any damp proof services, always try to obtain at least 3 or 4 quotations from different Haydock companies. If you are in any doubt about any company you should ask to see evidence of qualifications and professional membership certificates.

Watch out for contractors holding the CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) or the Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness (CSTDB) accreditations, or local companies who are members of the Property Care Association or the DPA (Damp Proofing Association).

You can guarantee that your damp proofing specialist is well qualified and has the necessary working experience to provide a high quality damp proofing service, if they've got membership of either the DPA or PCA. Such professional memberships also means that there are guarantees for any work completed.
