  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


The next article describes what causes such damp issues in Neston, and the various ways of preventing and resolving them.


Penetrating damp in your home can be the result of a whole host of external factors for instance: cracked or loose roof tiles, unsound brickwork, cavity wall problems and damaged guttering. Inside your Neston property, it can be the result of burst or leaky pipes, overflowing bathtubs or sinks and cracked shower trays. If left to continue leaking these factors allow water to soak into woodwork and walls, which in time create blistering or broken plaster, damp dark patches on walls and flaking or bubbling paintwork.

If left untreated for some time, a leaking roof can cause wet rot in the timbers of your roof. Even though it's fortunate that wet rot doesn't have an impact on brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to replace the entire roof (extremely expensive!) if the timbers of your roof become structurally unsound. If a black fungus appears on any woodwork and the roof timbers feel "spongy" to the touch, you could have a case of wet rot.

You shouldn't fret however, because to prevent these problems from occurring, a few basic steps like cleaning and checking your rain gutters and roof for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and inspecting pipework for leaks should avoid such issues. A professional Neston damp proof service will check these areas in order to help avoid any further problems, as an integral part of solving your issues with damp.


Condensation Damp Neston UK (0151)

Quite simple to identify and a cause of damp in many Neston properties, condensation is incredibly common. When humid, warm air makes contact with cooler surfaces, tiny droplets of water swiftly form. Inadequate ventilation in places with high humidity, for example in bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, is the most common explanation for condensation.

Wiping up any water droplets that appear, and ensuring you have sufficient ventilation in the worst affected areas, are among the simplest answers to such problems. The necessary steps may require the upgrading or installation of air bricks, extractor fans and cooker hoods, with the purpose of redirecting damp air outside of your property in Neston.

There could be issues with sucking in damp air from the outside, and by performing an in-depth damp proofing survey an expert in Neston will be able to find things that play a role in the situation. To successfully minimise condensation, airflow needs to be regulated properly. A competent Neston damp proofing specialist will be able to offer advice and solutions to accomplish this in your home.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Neston Cheshire


Since 1875, a damp proof course has been fitted as standard in all houses built in the United Kingdom. If your house was constructed before this period it's perfectly possible you might not have one installed. If your house was constructed after this year, but you're still experiencing rising damp, it could be that your damp proof membrane or course has been impaired.

If you suppose that you might have rising damp, rotten or crumbling skirting boards, white powdery deposits forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces and "tide marks" on walls, are fair signs that you might be right. If you see or think you may have any of these, it's possible that you've got a problem with rising damp.

Rising Damp Neston Cheshire

The first step towards resolving your rising damp should be to simply check whether or not you've got a DPM on the outside walls of your property in Neston. For adequate protection it ought to be 150mm above the level of the ground. If this is not the case you may be able to dig away the ground to create this space, or if this isn't feasible, you could install a higher DPM.

If this isn't the cause of the problem and your DPM (damp proof membrane) is correct, there could be more serious issues to deal with caused by the dampness rising up from the ground beneath, up through your flooring, and into your walls.

Neston damp proofing technicians will quickly be able to ascertain the cause of your rising damp, and using a variety of techniques will quickly eliminate the problem. If you have a somewhat older home with no damp proof membrane or one that is damaged over a considerable area, a damp proofing cream (such as Dryzone) can be injected into your external walls. This special cream is injected with a nozzle into holes drilled evenly along the wall's mortar joint, and before the cream can set it turns to liquid and soaks into the surrounding brickwork creating a barrier that is repellent to water.

If the damp proofing cream is not appropriate, or the damage to your membrane is too extensive, a brand new damp proof course may need to be installed. Whilst this sort of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve damp issues, it may be your only real solution when all is said and done.

The application of a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is another potential option for less severe areas of damp course damage. As this is going to be applied beneath any floor coverings, wood flooring, carpeting and tiles must be lifted and moved before this process can begin. In basements this is an especially effectual solution, and will form a part of the "tanking" procedure which is used to make rooms watertight. For further protection in such problem areas, your Neston damp proofing technician may advise the application of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried.

Tanking: The process of covering exposed surfaces with a watertight paint in a basement or below ground area is called "tanking". This has to be applied on the base surface of walls and floors, so any wall coverings and plaster must be removed and the surfaces in question correctly prepared before work commences. You can replaster any wall surfaces and decorate over it, after the coating has completely dried. As it must be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a property, this is a really disruptive process. Therefore, it is recommended that you call in more than one damp proofing specialist to ensure that this really is the only effective option.


Dehumidifiers are an efficient way to remove moisture from the air, so for condensation problems they can be of help. The downside with dehumidifiers in endeavouring to stop dampness is that they merely cover up the cause of the damp, not get rid of it. If you're experiencing damp in any part of your home in Neston, you should get in touch with a competent damp proofing specialist for the best advice.


The best recommendations for professionals when it comes to home improvements are generally friends and family. When possible you should always see if you can get at least 2 or 3 different quotations from a range of companies, and before signing up to any particular damp proofing providers, you can ask to look at qualifications and professional membership certificates, as proof of their credibility.

Professional Neston damp proofing companies should be registered members of either the Property Care Association (PCA) or the Damp Proofing Association (DPA), or have qualifications from the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments (CSRT) or the Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness (CSTDB).

If your chosen Neston damp proofing providers are members of the DPA or PCA they will be suitably qualified and have acquired the required experience to provide you with a high quality service for your damp proofing needs. Any remedial work completed by any one of their members is also guaranteed.
