Damp Proofing Holbeach Lincolnshire (PE12)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These 3 primary types of damp are discussed in more detail below, together with recommendations for prevention and resolution, in case you discover them in your home or business in Holbeach.


Problems like damaged guttering, loose or cracked roof tiles, cavity wall problems and unsound brickwork are typical external factors that can cause penetrating damp in your home. Inside a structure, burst or dripping pipes, overflowing bathtubs or sinks and damaged shower trays, can cause penetrating damp. If water is allowed to continue soaking into the walls and woodwork, the visible signs with time will be flaking or bubbling paintwork, dark damp patches on walls and broken or blistered plaster.

Wet rot can develop in your roof timbers if you have a leaky roof that's neglected for quite some time. Wet rot cannot spread into brickwork, but having it can mean that in the worst outcome the timbers of your roof become structurally compromised, necessitating a new roof. An unfamiliar musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your woodwork and the appearance of a black fungus, could all herald the existence of wet rot.

The measures for prevention can be quite basic, for instance repointing dodgy brickwork, inspecting piping for leaks and cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks. A competent damp proofer in Holbeach will check these areas in order to help avoid any further complications, as an element of fixing your issues with dampness.


Condensation Damp Holbeach UK (01406)

One of the most common forms of damp in many properties in Holbeach, condensation is super easy to spot. When warm, humid air makes contact with cooler surfaces, tiny droplets of water quickly form. In places where high humidity is present, as in: kitchens, bathrooms and boiler rooms, condensation arises because of inadequate ventilation.

Wiping up any water droplets that appear, and making certain that there's enough ventilation in the main trouble spots, are amongst the easiest answers to such issues. The necessary steps might call for the upgrading or installation of extractors, cooker hoods and air bricks, with the intention of redirecting moist air to the outside of your home in Holbeach.

There might be issues with drawing in damp air from the outside, and by performing an in-depth damp proof survey an expert in Holbeach will be able to find circumstances that play a role in the problem. The best way to successfully minimise condensation is to regulate airflow properly, and your local Holbeach damp proofing technician will be able to give you guidance and advice on how this can be achieved.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Holbeach Lincolnshire


A damp proof course has been compulsory on houses constructed in Great Britain since 1875. If your property or home was built before this time it's perfectly possible you might not have this installed. It's possible that your damp proof membrane or course could have been damaged somehow if you are experiencing rising damp issues in a home built after this year.

Rising damp can be rather difficult to distinguish, but some things to keep an eye out for are; white powdery deposits being found on floor surfaces or appearing on walls, crumbling or rotten skirtings and "tide marks" on walls. It is possible that you might have a rising damp problem if you have seen one or more of these.

Rising Damp Holbeach Lincolnshire

Dealing with rising damp issues can be as straightforward as checking your exterior walls and seeing if you can spot a damp proof course. For adequate protection it should be 150mm (approximately six inches) above the level of the ground. Where you discover that this space does not exist, you could dig the ground away to increase it, or if this approach is not possible, a higher damp course will have to be put in.

You might have more problematic issues if you find that your damp course is fine, and it could be that the moisture is seeping up from the ground, up through your flooring, and into your home's walls, which will be even more of a concern.

Using a number of methods, damp proofing specialists in Holbeach can swiftly identify and solve rising damp issues. A damp proofing cream (such as Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall if you have a somewhat older property with no damp proof membrane, or one that's damaged over a significant area. This calls for drilling holes at intervals in your brickwork and the cream injected with a special nozzle to fill up the gaps behind the brickwork down to below ground level.

In situations where damp proofing cream injection is not an appropriate treatment, or where the membrane is extensively damaged, putting in a whole new damp proof course may be neccessary. Regrettably this is taking repair work to the extreme, but it might be the only solution to your damp problems.

Damp Proofers Holbeach (PE12)

Another potential solution for smaller areas of damage might include painting on a layer a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion coating. Since this is applied under your existing floor coverings, tiles, carpeting and laminate flooring will have to be lifted and moved before this procedure can commence. This is particularly effective in basements as an integral part of the "tanking" process to make a room that's watertight. Before the bitumen coating has has dried out completely, your Holbeach damp proofing expert may suggest applying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane), for additional protection.

Tanking: In basements and below ground areas of a property, tanking is the process where surfaces that are exposed are covered in a waterproof coating. This has to be applied at the base level of walls and floors, and so all plaster and wall covering must be removed and the pertinent surfaces prepared properly before work commences. You can replaster any wall surfaces and decorate on top of it, after the coating has dried out completely. This is an exceptionally disruptive job since it has to be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a building, and it is advisable to obtain more than one expert's opinion on whether this is really the only solution to your damp problems.


To help ease condensation problems, you could always try dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are pretty effective. The fact that these products merely mask the cause of the damp and not get rid of it, is the issue with dehumidifiers. If you're suffering from dampness in any part of your home in Holbeach, you should call on a competent damp proofing specialist for the most reliable advice.


As with just about any project, the most reliable recommendations for a local specialist can be obtained from family and friends. Where possible you should always try to acquire at least 3 or 4 different quotations from a variety of companies, and before hiring any particular damp proof services, you can ask to look at professional membership certificates and qualifications, as proof of their integrity.

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

You can be certain that your damp proofing provider is well qualified and has acquired the necessary experience to carry out a first class damp proof service, if they are members of either the PCA or DPA. Such memberships also means that there are guarantees for any remedial work carried out.
