Damp Proofing Viewpark Scotland (G71): It's not simply the fact that problems with damp look unsightly, they can also induce health problems and contribute to serious structural damage.

  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you'll find info on what may cause damp issues in your home in Viewpark, and precisely how you might go about fixing them.


Penetrating damp in buildings can be caused by numerous external factors for example: cavity wall issues, loose or broken roof tiles, defective guttering and unsound brickwork. Inside your Viewpark property, penetrating damp can be the result of leaking or burst pipes, cracked shower trays and overflowing bathtubs or basins. If water continues to seep into the woodwork and walls, the visible signs over time are going to be dark damp patches on walls, peeling or bubbling paintwork and broken or blistering plaster.

If you have a leaking roof and it's been neglected for a while, it can cause wet rot in your roof timbers. Although it is fortunate that wet rot doesn't have an impact on brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to get a new roof (very costly!) if the timbers of your roof become unsound structurally. A distinctive musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your rafters and signs of a black fungus, could all indicate the existence of wet rot.

The measures for prevention can be quite basic, for example cleaning and checking your gutters and roof for leaks, repointing dodgy brickwork and inspecting pipes for leaks. As part of an overall damp proofing program, your local Viewpark damp proofing specialist will check out all of these areas.


Condensation Damp Viewpark UK (Dialling code	01698)

Condensation is super easy to spot and is a common form of damp within many buildings in Viewpark. When moist, warm air comes into contact with cooler surfaces, minute droplets of water immediately appear. In places where high humidity is present, as in: bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens, condensation is often caused due to poor ventilation.

Wiping away any droplets that appear, and ensuring you've got adequate ventilation in the main trouble spots, are amongst the easiest solutions to such problems. Redirecting moisture laden air outside of your home in Viewpark, by fitting or upgrading cooker hoods, extractors and air bricks, will help you to eliminate this problem.

The most effective way to find out the main things that play a role in the problem, is to have an in-depth damp proofing survey carried out by a reputable Viewpark company. Occasionally moist air is drawn in from outside, plainly making matters even worse. The most effective way to adequately control condensation is to regulate airflow correctly, and your local Viewpark damp proofing company will be able to give you guidance and advice on how this can best be accomplished.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Viewpark Scotland


Since 1875, a damp proof course has been installed as standard in all houses built in the UK. If your home was built before this time it's conceivable you may not have one installed. It's a possibility that your DPM may have been damaged in some way if you are experiencing rising damp problems in a home built after this date.

Although difficult to identify, white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being found on floor surfaces, tide marks on walls and crumbling or rotten skirtings, are all giveaway signs of rising damp. If you see or think that you may have any of these signs, it is possible that you have a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Viewpark Scotland

Merely checking your home's exterior walls to spot if you have a DPM can be one step towards managing your rising damp. To be sure of an adequate measure of protection the damp course needs to be above ground level by a minimum of 150mm (around 6"). Where you find that this space does not exist, you could dig the earth away to increase it, or if this process is not plausible, a higher DPM (damp proof membrane) will need to be put in.

If your damp course is in fact correct and the gap from the ground isn't the root cause of the problem, dampness could be rising up through your flooring and into your walls, which might be a much more challenging issue.

Viewpark damp proofing specialists will quickly be able to figure out the root cause of your rising damp, and employing a number of techniques will soon resolve the problem. If you have an older house with no damp proof course or one that is damaged over a considerable area, a damp proofing cream can be injected into your wall. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into holes drilled evenly along the wall's mortar joint, and before the cream cures it turns to liquid and penetrates into the adjoining brickwork creating a barrier that is water-repellent.

In instances where damp proofing cream injection is not a suitable remedy, or where your membrane is too seriously damaged, installing a complete new damp proof course might be neccessary. While this level of repair work is a fairly extreme way to solve rising damp, it could be your only solution in the final analysis.

The application of a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is yet another potential solution for minimal areas of membrane damage. Wooden flooring, tiles or carpets will have to be lifted prior to work being done, since it's applied under your floor coverings. Also used as a part of the tanking procedure to make a space watertight, this is an especially effective solution in cellars. For additional protection in such problem areas, your Viewpark damp proof expert may advise applying building paper (a special foil backed membrane) before the bitumen paint has dried completely.

Tanking: The process of covering exposed surfaces with a waterproof paint in a below ground area such as a basement or cellar is known as "tanking". All wall coverings and plaster must be taken off and the surfaces correctly prepared before any work begins, since this waterproof coating must be applied on the base surface of floors and walls. You can replaster and decorate on top of it, after the coating has thoroughly dried out. You must always get more than one expert opinion on whether this is the only cure for your damp problems, as this is an extremely disruptive process as it must be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a property.


Issues with condensation can certainly be helped through the use of dehumidifiers, which are an effective way to remove moisture from the air. The fact that these gadgets primarily hide the cause of the damp and don't cure it, is the disadvantage with dehumidifiers. If you're suffering with dampness in any area of your property in Viewpark, you should speak to a professional damp proofing company for the best advice.


As with pretty much any home improvement project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a local professional can be gleaned from neighbours and friends. Before signing up for any damp proofing services, always see if you can get at least three quotations from different Viewpark companies. If you're in any doubt about any specific company you can ask to look at qualifications and professional membership certificates.

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

You can be certain that your damp proofing specialist is well qualified and has acquired the appropriate practical experience to provide a top notch damp proof service, if they are members of the PCA or DPA. Such memberships also means that there are certain guarantees for any remedial work undertaken.
