Damp Proofing Ryde Isle of Wight (PO33)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find information on what might cause problems with damp in your home or business in Ryde, and precisely how you can go about rectifying them.


Common external factors that can cause penetrating damp in your home include: cavity wall problems, unsound brickwork, defective guttering and broken or loose roof tiles. Inside a structure, the causes can be burst or leaking pipes, overflowing sinks or baths and damaged shower trays. If left unchecked, dark damp patches on walls, peeling or bubbling paintwork and broken or blistered plaster, will be the noticeable outcome of water soaking into the walls and woodwork.

Wet rot can arise in the timbers of your roof if you've got a leaking roof that is neglected for quite some time. Whilst it can't spread into your brickwork, wet rot can cause your roof timbers to become structurally dangerous, and in the worst outcome you could even need to replace the whole roof - very expensive! Wet rot can be recognised by the appearance of black fungus on your woodwork and a "spongy" feel to the timber, together with an unusual musty smell from the decaying timber.

Preventative maintenance can be relatively basic, such as examining pipes for leaks, cleaning and checking your roof and gutters for leaks and repointing brickwork. A competent damp proofer in Ryde will check all of these areas in order to help prevent any further complications, as an integral part of fixing your issues with dampness.


Condensation Damp Ryde UK (01983)

One of the most common forms of damp in Ryde properties, condensation is super easy to identify. Tiny droplets of water form on cooler surfaces when warm, moist air comes into contact with these surfaces. It often forms due to inadequate ventilation in places where there's high humidity, i.e. bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens.

Wiping away any droplets that form, and making certain that there's enough ventilation in the affected areas, are amongst the simplest solutions to such problems. This might involve the installation or upgrading of air bricks, cooker hoods and extractor fans to help remove the moist air to the outside of your home.

There might be issues with sucking in moist air from the outside, and by carrying out a detailed damp proof survey a specialist in Ryde will identify areas that exacerbate the situation. To adequately minimise condensation problems, airflow must be properly regulated. A knowledgeable Ryde damp proofing technician is well qualified to offer solutions and advice in this regard.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Ryde Isle of Wight


A damp proof course has been compulsory on homes constructed in the UK since 1875. You might not have a damp course installed on your home in Ryde if it was constructed prior to this period. It is possible that your DPM might have been damaged in some way if you are suffering with rising damp problems in a house built after this year.

It can be notoriously difficult to distinguish rising damp, but some giveaway signs are; white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being found on floor surfaces, tide marks on walls and rotten or crumbling skirting boards. While the existence of these is not conclusive, they are all clear indicators of rising damp.

Rising Damp Ryde Isle of Wight

The initial step towards managing your rising damp should be to simply check whether or not you've got a damp proof course on the external walls of your property in Ryde. It ought to be 150 millimetres (around 6 inches) above ground level for adequate protection. If this isn't the case you can dig the ground away to generate this space, or if this is not plausible, you can put in a DPM (damp proof membrane) higher up.

If your damp proof membrane (DPM) is correct and the gap from the ground is not the explanation for the problem, moisture may be coming up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a much more challenging issue.

Using a range of techniques, damp proofing technicians in Ryde can quickly identify and eliminate your rising damp problems. A damp proofing cream (such as Dryzone) can be carefully injected into your walls if you have an older home with no damp proof membrane, or it is damaged over an extensive area. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into evenly spaced holes drilled along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream sets it turns into liquid and penetrates into the surrounding brickwork creating a barrier that is repellent to water.

In instances where damp proofing injection cream is not a satisfactory treatment, or where the damp course membrane is too severely damaged, putting in a brand new damp proof course may be neccessary. Although this is naturally a pretty extreme course of action, it might be the only method to resolve your damp issues effectively.

For less severe areas of damp course damage, yet another possible remedy would be to coat with a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion paint. Because this is going to be applied beneath your existing floor coverings, tiles, wood flooring and carpeting must be lifted and moved before this procedure can commence. This is especially effective in cellars as a part of the "tanking" process to create a room that is watertight. Your Ryde damp proofing technician might recommend applying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has completely dried, added protection in those troublesome areas.

Tanking: The process of covering exposed surfaces in a watertight paint in a basement or below ground area is known as "tanking". As this watertight coating must be applied to the base surface of walls and floors, all plaster and wall coverings must be removed before any work can begin, and the appropriate surfaces prepared properly. You can replaster and decorate over it, as soon as the coating has completely dried. Because it has to be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a property, this is a very disruptive process. It's therefore a good idea to call in more than one damp proofing specialist to make sure that this is really the only effective solution.


Dehumidifiers are an effective way to remove moisture from the air, hence for condensation problems they can be of help. The trouble with the use of dehumidifiers in attempting to eliminate mould and damp is that they only cover up the cause of the damp, not get rid of it. To get the most reliable advice if you are suffering from damp in any part of your house, you can call on an experienced damp proofing company in Ryde.


Friends and family should invariably be your first port of call when you're looking for recommendations and testimonials for local professionals. Before signing up for any damp proofing services, you should try to obtain at least three estimates from different Ryde companies. If you've got any doubts about any specific company you can ask to see professional membership certificates and qualifications.

Look for membership of and qualifications from bodies such as the Damp Proofing Association or the Property Care Association (PCA), or contractors holding the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) professional qualifications.

If your Ryde damp proofing providers are members of the PCA or DPA you can be certain they'll be well qualified and have acquired the required practical experience to offer a top notch service for all your damp proofing needs. Additionally, it offers a guarantee over any damp proofing work supplied by one of their members.
