Damp Proofing Wellesbourne Warwickshire (CV35)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you will find info on what might be causing problems with damp in your home or business in Wellesbourne, and how you can set about rectifying them.


Issues like damaged guttering, cracked roof tiles, cavity wall issues and cracks in brickwork are common external factors of penetrating damp in your home. Inside a building, the causes can be dripping or burst pipes, cracked shower trays and overflowing bathtubs or basins. If water continues to seep into the woodwork and walls, the noticeable signs over time will be broken or blistered plaster, dark damp patches on walls and peeling paintwork.

If neglected for an extended period of time, a leaking roof can cause wet rot in your roof timbers. Whilst it is fortunate that wet rot doesn't affect brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to have a new roof (very costly!) if the timbers of your roof become unsound structurally. If black fungus appears on your woodwork and the timber in your roof feels "spongy" to touch, you could have problems with wet rot.

You shouldn't panic however, since to prevent these problems from occurring, a few simple steps like repointing dodgy brickwork, inspecting pipes for leaks and cleaning and checking your guttering and roof for leaks should aleviate such situations. An experienced Wellesbourne damp proof service will check these areas in order to help avoid any further problems, as an integral part of solving your damp issues.


Condensation Damp Wellesbourne UK (01789)

Super easy to identify and a contributing factor to damp in many Wellesbourne properties, condensation is incredibly common. When humid, warm air comes into contact with cool surfaces (such as the glass in windows), minute droplets of water rapidly form. It often manifests because of inadequate ventilation in places where high humidity is present, i.e. bathrooms, boiler rooms and kitchens.

To reduce condensation issues, easy solutions include ensuring there's sufficient ventilation in the affected areas, and wiping up any droplets as they form. This may require the installation or upgrading of air bricks, cooker hoods and extractors to help reroute the moisture laden air to the outside of the building.

The most effective way to identify the key areas that contribute to the situation, is to get a detailed damp proofing survey carried out by a professional Wellesbourne company. With some properties damp air can be sucked in from the outside, plainly making things worse. Airflow must be regulated properly to adequately control condensation problems, and a certified damp proofing technician will be able to give advice and offer solutions on this matter.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Wellesbourne Warwickshire


A damp proof course has been installed as standard on homes built in the United Kingdom since 1875. You may not have a damp proof course installed on your home in Wellesbourne if it was built earlier than this. If you're experiencing rising damp in a home built after this date it may be that your damp proof course or damp proof membrane has been somehow or other.

Although hard to distinguish, rotten or crumbling skirtings, white powdery deposits being discovered on floor surfaces or appearing on walls and "tide marks" on walls, are all giveaway clues that you may have rising damp. Whilst the existence of these isn't conclusive, they are all indications of rising damp problems.

Rising Damp Wellesbourne Warwickshire

Simply checking your exterior walls to see if you have a damp course can be one step towards eliminating your rising damp. It needs to be 150 millimetres (around 6") above the level of the ground for adequate protection. Where you discover that this gap does not exist, you can dig away the soil to increase it, or if this process is not feasible, a higher damp course will need to be put in.

You might have more challenging issues if you learn that your damp proof membrane (DPM) is fine, and it might be that the damp is rising from the ground, through your flooring, and into the walls, which is going to be even more worrying.

Damp proofing technicians in Wellesbourne can swiftly identify and remedy rising damp using a number of different techniques. If you have a somewhat older house with no damp proof membrane or one that's damaged over a considerable area, a damp proofing cream (such as Permaguard or Dryzone) can be injected into your walls. This calls for the drilling of holes at intervals along the brickwork and the cream injected with a special nozzle to plug the gaps behind the brickwork.

In situations where damp proofing cream injection isn't a suitable treatment, or where your membrane is too seriously damaged, putting in a brand new damp proof course could be neccessary. Whilst this sort of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve damp issues, it might be the only solution at the end of the day.

For minimal areas of membrane damage, yet another potential option could be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion. As this will be applied under your current floor coverings, tiles, wood flooring and carpets must be lifted and moved before this operation can commence. This is especially efficacious in cellar areas as an integral part of the "tanking" procedure to make a room which is watertight. Before the bitumen coating has completely dried out, your Wellesbourne damp proof technician may advise the laying of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane), for extra protection.

Tanking: In below ground areas such as cellars or basements, tanking is the 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 plaster and wall covering must be removed and the appropriate surfaces prepared correctly before work commences. You can replaster the wall surfaces and decorate over the top, as soon as the coating has dried out completely. As it has to be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a property, this is an extremely disruptive process. Therefore, it is advisable to bring in more than one damp proofing specialist to ensure that this is really the only effective remedy.


Problems with condensation can certainly be helped by means of dehumidifiers, which are a highly effective way of lowering the moisture content in the air. The fact that these products only hide the cause of the damp and not get rid of it, is the main problem with dehumidifiers. To get the most reliable advice if you are suffering from dampness in any part of your property, you should get in touch with a competent damp proofing company in Wellesbourne.


As with just about any project, the most trustworthy recommendations for a specialist come from friends and family. Before employing any damp proofing services, you should always see if you can get at least three quotes from different Wellesbourne companies. If you've got any doubts about any specific company you should ask to see evidence of qualifications and professional memberships.

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

Membership of the DPA or PCA guarantees your chosen damp proofing specialist is well qualified and has the required experience to perform a high quality damp proof service. Such memberships also means there are certain guarantees for any remedial work accomplished.
