Mablethorpe Damp Proofing & Timber Treatment

Damp Proofing Mablethorpe Lincolnshire (LN12): Problems with damp in your house in Mablethorpe may not just look unappealing, but they can cause major health and structural issues too. Ugly damp patches and peeling wallpaper can conceal a much more serious problem which, if not cured promptly, could lead to extremely expensive repair bills. If you've got an issue such as this there is very little that you can do to resolve it yourself, and the wisest thing to do is to bring in a competent Mablethorpe damp proofing company to carry out a survey and come up with viable solutions.

  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These three key types of damp are outlined in depth below, along with recommendations for prevention and resolution, if you should find them in your home or business in Mablethorpe.


Issues like cavity wall issues, damaged guttering, broken or loose roof tiles and unsound brickwork are all external causes of penetrating damp. Inside a structure, the causes can be overflowing bathtubs or sinks, cracked shower trays and burst or dripping pipes. If left to carry on leaking these issues allow water to soak into walls and woodwork, which over time result in dark damp patches on walls, flaking or bubbling paintwork and broken or blistered plaster.

Wet rot can arise in the timbers of your roof if you have a leaking roof that is left untreated over a period of time. Though it is lucky that wet rot doesn't affect brickwork, in the worst case scenario, you may need to replace the whole roof (extremely costly!) if the timbers of your roof become unsound structurally. If a black fungus starts to appear on any woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to the touch, you may have problems with wet rot.

You shouldn't fret however, since to stop these problems occurring, a few basic steps like repointing dodgy brickwork, examining pipes for leaks and cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks should aleviate such situations. A knowledgeable damp proofer in Mablethorpe will check these areas to help avoid any future complications, as part of resolving your issues with dampness.


Condensation Damp Mablethorpe UK (01507)

Condensation is very easy to identify and is a common form of damp within many houses in Mablethorpe. When colder surfaces come into contact with moist, warm air, tiny water droplets form on those cold surfaces. Inadequate ventilation in areas with high humidity, such as in bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, is the most frequent cause of condensation.

Easy solutions to prevent condensation include wiping away any droplets as soon as they form and ensuring you have adequate ventilation in the problem areas. Redirecting moist air to the outside of your property in Mablethorpe, by fitting or upgrading extractor fans, cooker hoods and air bricks, will help you to eliminate this problem.

The best way to ascertain the main factors that contribute to the situation, is to get an in-depth damp proofing survey carried out by an experienced Mablethorpe damp proofing specialist. In some cases moist air is drawn in from the outside, plainly making matters worse. Airflow must be regulated properly to adequately minimise condensation, and a certified damp proofing technician will be able to give advice and offer solutions on this topic.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Mablethorpe Lincolnshire


A damp proof course has been fitted as standard on homes built in Great Britain since 1875. It is quite possible that you might not have one fitted if your house in Mablethorpe was constructed in the years before this. If your property was constructed after this year, but you are still suffering with rising damp issues, it could be that your DPM has been compromised.

If you think that you may have rising damp in your home, "tide marks" on walls, rotten or crumbling skirtings and white powdery deposits being discovered on floor surfaces or appearing on walls, are good signs that you may be correct. If you notice or think that you might have any of these, it is possible you have a problem with rising damp.

Rising Damp Mablethorpe Lincolnshire

Purely checking your home's exterior walls to find out if you've got a DPM can be the first step towards fixing your rising damp. For satisfactory protection it should be 150mm above the level of the ground. If this isn't the case you can dig the ground away to create this space, or if this isn't feasible, you could install a DPM (damp proof membrane) higher up.

If this is not the problem and your damp proof membrane is in order, there could be more challenging issues to deal with caused by the dampness coming up from the ground, up through your floors, and into the walls of your property.

Using a range of techniques, damp proofing professionals in Mablethorpe can swiftly detect and solve rising damp. Older homes which either have no DPM, or have one that is damaged over a considerable area, can be treated with a damp proofing injection cream such as Permaguard. Evenly spaced holes are drilled at intervals along the mortar joint, and a nozzle is used to inject the special cream, which then soaks into the surrounding brickwork before curing to form an effective, horizontal waterproof barrier.

If the deterioration of your DPM is too extensive, or if damp proofing injection cream is not a satisfactory treatment, you may need to put in a brand new damp proof course. Whilst this level of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve rising damp, it might be your only real solution when all is said and done.

For minimal areas of membrane damage, yet another potential option would be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion. Because this is applied underneath your current floor coverings, tiles, wooden flooring and carpeting will have to be lifted and put aside before this process can commence. Also used as a part of the tanking process to create a waterproof space, this is an especially effective treatment in cellars. Your Mablethorpe damp proof expert might advise the laying of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried, extra protection in these problem areas.

Tanking: In areas of a property which are below ground, such as cellars or basements, tanking is a process where any exposed surfaces are painted with a watertight coating. This has to be applied at the base level of walls and floors, therefore all plaster and wall coverings must be removed and the appropriate surfaces prepared correctly before any work begins. When this coating has been applied and dried, it is then the time to replaster and decorate over the top of it. This is a very disruptive job as it must be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a property, and it's recommended that you obtain more than one expert's opinion about whether this really is the only solution to your rising damp.


To help with condensation problems, you can always try dehumidifiers, which for lowering the moisture content of the air, are really efficient. The fact that they simply mask the cause of the damp and not cure it, is the disadvantage with dehumidifiers. If you are suffering with damp in any area of your home in Mablethorpe, you should speak to a competent damp proofing company for the best advice.


Family and friends should invariably be your first port of call when you're looking for recommendations for local professionals. If possible you should try to acquire at least 3 or 4 different quotations from a number of companies, and before employing any specific damp proofing providers, you should ask to look at qualifications and professional membership certificates, as evidence of their trustworthiness.

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

If your Mablethorpe damp proofing specialists are members of the PCA or DPA you can be certain they'll be suitably qualified and have the necessary experience to provide you with a first class service for your damp proofing issues. Such memberships also means there are certain guarantees for any work undertaken.
