Damp Proofing Inverurie Scotland (AB51)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These three key kinds of damp are explained in more detail below, along with recommendations for prevention and resolution, in case you find them in your house in Inverurie.


Penetrating damp in your home can be the result of a range of external factors such as: cavity wall issues, damaged guttering, unsound brickwork and loose or broken roof tiles. From within, it can be created by damaged shower trays, leaking or burst pipes and overflowing baths or basins. If left unchecked, peeling or bubbling paintwork, blistered or broken plaster and damp dark patches on walls, will be the obvious outcome of water soaking into the walls and woodwork.

If left untreated for an extended period of time, a leaky roof can cause wet rot to develop in the timbers of your roof. Even though it is fortunate that wet rot doesn't have an impact on brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to replace the entire roof (very costly!) if the timbers of your roof become structurally unsound. If black fungus appears on your woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to the touch, you might have an issue with wet rot.

The measures for prevention can be quite basic, for example examining pipework for leaks, cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks and repointing brickwork. If you use the expert services of a competent Inverurie damp proofing company, they'll check all these areas as part of your complete damp proofing service.


Condensation Damp Inverurie UK (Dialling code	01467)

Condensation is very easy to identify and is one of the most common forms of damp in many homes in Inverurie. When colder surfaces make contact with humid, warm air, minute droplets of water form on those cold surfaces. It is a problem due to poor ventilation in areas where high humidity is present, i.e. kitchens, boiler rooms and bathrooms.

Easy solutions to prevent condensation involve wiping up any droplets of water whenever they appear and making certain you've got sufficient ventilation in the problem areas. Redirecting humid air outside of your property in Inverurie, by updating or installing extractors, cooker hoods and air bricks, will help you to remedy this issue.

A damp proof survey by a trustworthy Inverurie company might also find things which exacerbate the issue by drawing in damp air from outside. To adequately minimise condensation, airflow must be regulated properly. A reliable Inverurie damp proofing specialist will be more than happy to offer solutions and advice to accomplish this in your home.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Inverurie Scotland


Houses built since 1875 in Great Britain have required a damp proof course or membrane to be installed as standard. If your property or home was constructed before this period it's conceivable that you might not have this installed. If you are experiencing rising damp in a house built after this period it may be that your damp proof membrane has been damaged in some way.

Rising damp can be hard to identify, but some areas to look out for are; crumbling or rotten skirting boards, white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being discovered on floor surfaces and tide marks on walls. If you notice or think that you might have any of these, it is possible that you've got a problem with rising damp.

Rising Damp Inverurie Scotland

The first step towards handling your rising damp should simply be to check whether or not you have in fact got a DPM on the external walls of your home in Inverurie. It should be 150 millimetres (about six inches) above ground level for adequate protection. If this is not the situation you may be able to dig the ground away to create this space, or if this is not possible, you could install a higher DPM.

You may have more challenging issues if you find that your damp course is fine, and it may be that the damp is seeping up from the ground, through your flooring, and into the walls, which is going to be even more worrying.

Using a number of methods, damp proofing experts in Inverurie will swiftly detect and eliminate your rising damp problems. A damp proofing cream (such as Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall if you've got an older home with no damp proof course, or it is damaged over an extensive area. Holes will be drilled at intervals in the mortar course, and a special nozzle used to inject the cream, which then soaks into the surrounding brickwork before curing to form an effective, horizontal water-repellent barrier.

In situations where damp proofing injection cream is not an appropriate solution, or when the membrane is extensively damaged, installing a brand new damp proof course could be neccessary. Although this is obviously a fairly drastic approach, it might be the best way to solve your rising damp issues successfully.

For minimal areas of damage, another potential solution would be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion paint. This is applied beneath your current floor coverings, so carpeting, wood flooring and tiles must be lifted before any work is undertaken. This is especially efficacious in cellar areas as a part of the "tanking" procedure to make a room which is watertight. Before the bitumen coating has completely dried out, your Inverurie damp proofing expert might suggest laying building paper (a special foil backed membrane), for extra protection.

Tanking: In basements, cellars and below ground areas of a property, "tanking" is a process where exposed surfaces are covered in a watertight coating. This should be applied at the base level of floors and walls, and so any wall covering and plaster must be removed and the surfaces in question prepared correctly before work commences. When this paint has been put on, it must be allowed to dry out thoroughly before replastering and decorating over the top of it. You should invariably obtain more than one specialist's opinion on whether this is really the only remedy for your damp problems, because this is a very disruptive job since it needs to be applied to a whole ground floor or basement level of a property.


Dehumidifiers are an efficient way of lowering the moisture content in the air, so for condensation problems they can help. The fact that these gadgets only mask the cause of the damp and not cure it, is the issue with dehumidifier use. To get the best advice if you're experiencing damp or mould in any part of your property, you should get in touch with a professional damp proofing specialist in Inverurie.
