Damp Proofing Ringwood Hampshire (BH24)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find info on what could be causing problems with damp in your home in Ringwood, and how you may proceed with rectifying them.


Penetrating damp in structures can be the result of a whole host of external factors such as: cracks in brickwork, broken roof tiles, damaged guttering and cavity wall problems. Inside, damaged shower trays, overflowing bathtubs or basins and leaking or burst pipes, can contribute to penetrating damp. If water is allowed to continue seeping into the walls and woodwork, the obvious signs with time are going to be dark damp patches on walls, peeling paintwork and broken or blistering plaster.

If you have a leaking roof and it's been left untreated over a long period of time, it can cause wet rot to develop in your roof timbers. While it is fortunate that wet rot does not affect brickwork, in the worst outcome, you may need to replace the entire roof if your roof timbers become unsound structurally. Wet rot can be identified by the appearance of black fungus on your woodwork and a "spongy" feel to the timber, coupled with an unusual musty smell from the decaying timber.

You should not fret however, because to prevent these problems from occurring, a few straightforward steps like cleaning and checking your gutters and roof for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and inspecting pipework for leaks should reduce such issues. As part of a complete damp proofing arrangement, your local Ringwood damp proofing specialist will check all of these areas.


Condensation Damp Ringwood UK (01425)

Very easy to identify and a contributing factor to damp in a lot of Ringwood properties, condensation is incredibly common. When cooler surfaces come into contact with moist, warm air, minute water droplets appear on those surfaces. Poor ventilation in areas with a high level of humidity, such as in kitchens, boiler rooms and bathrooms, is the most frequent cause of condensation.

Simple solutions to stop condensation involve wiping up any water droplets whenever they form and ensuring that there's sufficient ventilation in the problem areas. This might call for the installation or upgrading of cooker hoods, air bricks and extractor fans to help redirect the damp air outside of the building.

The best way to identify the main things that exacerbate the situation, is to get a detailed damp proofing survey done by a professional Ringwood damp proofing company. Sometimes moist air can be drawn in from the outside, simply making things worse. Airflow needs to be regulated properly to effectively control condensation problems, and a certified damp proofing specialist will give advice and offer solutions on this topic.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Ringwood Hampshire


Since 1875, a damp proof course has been installed as standard in all homes built in Great Britain. It is possible that you may not have one fitted if your home or property in Ringwood was built in the years before this. If you are experiencing rising damp in a house constructed after this time it's possible that your damp proof course or membrane has been damaged somehow.

If you believe that you may have rising damp, crumbling or rotten skirting boards, "tide marks" on walls and white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being discovered on floor surfaces, are fair signs that you might be correct. If you see or think you may have any of these, it is possible that you've got a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Ringwood Hampshire

The first step towards fixing your problems with rising damp should simply be to check whether or not you've got a DPM on the outside walls of your property in Ringwood. For adequate protection it ought to be 150mm (around six inches) above the level of the ground. You could dig away the surrounding earth to generate this space if it is currently not enough, or you could put in a higher damp proof course if the first option isn't feasible.

If your damp proof membrane is in order and the gap from the ground isn't the explanation for the problem, moisture could be coming up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a much more problematic issue.

Damp proofing experts in Ringwood will quickly identify and remedy rising damp problems using a variety of methods. Older houses which either don't have a damp proof course, or have one that's damaged over an extensive area, can have a damp proofing cream injected into the exterior walls. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into holes drilled at intervals along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream cures it turns to liquid and penetrates into the adjoining brickwork creating a barrier that is water-repellent.

In cases where damp proofing cream isn't a satisfactory solution, or where the DPM is too seriously damaged, installing a whole new damp proof course might be neccessary. Whilst this sort of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve damp issues, it could be the only effective solution in the final analysis.

The application of a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is another possible remedy for smaller areas of membrane damage. Since this is applied underneath any floor coverings, carpeting, wood flooring and tiles will have to be lifted before this process can commence. In cellars this is an especially effectual solution, and will form part of the "tanking" procedure which is used to make spaces watertight. For added protection in these troublesome areas, your Ringwood damp proofing specialist might advise the laying of building paper (a foil backed specialist membrane) before the bitumen paint has completely dried out.

Tanking: In below ground areas such as basements or cellars, tanking is a process where any exposed surfaces are covered in a watertight coating. This must be applied on the base surface of floors and walls, so all wall covering and plaster must be removed and the relevant surfaces correctly prepared before the commencement of any work. You can replaster and decorate on top of it, as soon as the paint has dried completely. This is a very disruptive job because it must be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a property, and it is wise to obtain more than one specialist's opinion on whether this is really the only resolution to your rising damp problems.


Dehumidifiers are an effective way of reducing the moisture content in the air, hence for condensation problems they can help quite a bit. Owing to the fact that dehumidifiers simply cover up the cause of the damp and don't get rid of it, there are downsides to this option. A professional damp proofing company in Ringwood will be delighted to give you advice on the best solution if you're suffering from mould or damp in any part of your home.
