Damp Proofing Whitnash Warwickshire (CV31)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These three primary kinds of damp are reviewed in more detail below, together with recommendations for prevention and resolution, in the event you discover them in your home in Whitnash.


Common external factors that may cause penetrating damp in your home include: damaged guttering, loose or broken roof tiles, cavity wall issues and cracks in brickwork. Inside, damaged shower trays, overflowing basins or bathtubs and leaky or burst pipes, can lead to penetrating damp. If left to carry on leaking these things enable water to seep into the walls and woodwork, which with time create dark damp patches on walls, blistering or broken plaster and flaking paintwork.

If you have a leaky roof and it has been neglected over a long period of time, it can cause wet rot to develop in the timbers of your roof. While it cannot spread into your brickwork, wet rot can cause the timber in your roof to become structurally compromised, and in a worst case scenario you might even need to have a new roof installed - extremely expensive! If black fungus appears on your woodwork and the roof timbers feel "spongy" to touch, you may have problems with wet rot.

Simple actions like cleaning and checking your gutters and roof for leaks, inspecting pipework for leaks and repointing brickwork, can be the basic preventative measures. An experienced damp proofer in Whitnash will check these areas to help prevent any further problems, as an integral part of solving your damp issues.


Condensation Damp Whitnash UK (01926)

Condensation is super easy to identify and one of the most common forms of damp within many properties in Whitnash. Minute droplets of water form on cool surfaces when humid, warm air comes into contact with them. In places with high humidity, such as: bathrooms, kitchens and boiler rooms, it forms due to poor ventilation.

Basic solutions to stop condensation involve wiping up any droplets as they form and making sure you have enough ventilation in the troublesome areas. This might involve the installation or updating of extractors, air bricks and cooker hoods to help redirect the moist air outside of the building.

The best way to identify the main factors that bring about the situation, is to have an in-depth damp proofing survey carried out by a trustworthy Whitnash specialist. In some cases damp air can be drawn in from outside, simply making matters worse. Airflow has to be properly regulated to successfully control condensation problems, and a reliable damp proofing specialist will give advice and offer solutions on this matter.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Whitnash Warwickshire


Houses constructed since 1875 in the UK have required a damp proof course or membrane to be fitted as standard. You may not have a damp proof course on your house in Whitnash if it was built earlier than this. It is possible that your damp proof course or damp proof membrane might have been damaged somehow if you are experiencing rising damp issues in a house built after this year.

If you think that you may have rising damp, a white powdery deposit forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces, rotten or crumbling skirting boards and tide marks on walls, are fair indications that you might be correct. While the existence of one or more of these isn't conclusive, they're all indications of rising damp problems.

Rising Damp Whitnash Warwickshire

Purely checking your external walls to spot if you have a damp proof course can be the first step towards solving your rising damp. In order to get a satisfactory degree of protection the damp proof course needs to be above ground level by a minimum of 150 millimetres (around 6 inches). If this is not the situation you might be able to dig away the ground to create this space, or if this isn't plausible, you could install a damp proof membrane (DPM) higher up.

If your damp proof membrane (DPM) is installed and in order and the gap isn't the explanation for the problem, moisture could be rising up through your flooring and into your walls, which might be a much more problematic issue.

Whitnash damp proofing specialists will swiftly be able to ascertain the cause of your rising damp, and employing a number of different techniques will quickly resolve the problem. A damp proof cream (such as Dryzone or Permaguard) can be injected into your wall if you've got a somewhat older home with no damp proof course, or it is damaged over a considerable area. This special cream is injected with a nozzle into holes drilled along the mortar course, and before the cream can cure it diffuses into the surrounding brickwork forming a barrier that is repellent to water.

In cases where damp proofing cream is not a suitable solution, or when your DPM is too severely damaged, installing a whole new damp proof course might be neccessary. This is taking repair work to the extreme, but it might be the only answer to your rising damp.

For minimal areas of membrane damage, another possible remedy would be to coat with a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion. This will be applied underneath your current floor coverings, so tiles, wood flooring and carpets will need to be lifted before any work can be undertaken. Also used as part of the "tanking" process to make a space watertight, this is a particularly effectual treatment in cellars. For extra protection in those problem areas, your Whitnash damp proofing expert might advise the application of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen paint has completely dried.

Tanking: In cellars and below ground areas of a property, tanking is a process where exposed surfaces are painted with a watertight coating. All plaster and wall covering must be removed and the surfaces in question properly prepared before any work begins, since this waterproof coating has to be applied at the base level of floors and walls. You can replaster and decorate on top of it, as soon as the coating has dried completely. Because it needs to be applied to a whole basement level or ground floor of a building, this is an extremely disruptive process. It's therefore recommended that you bring in more than one damp proofing expert to make sure that this really is the only possible resolution.


Dehumidifiers are a highly effective way of lowering the moisture content in the air, so for condensation problems they can help quite a lot. The fact that they primarily mask the cause of the damp and don't cure it, is the downside with dehumidifier use. If you are suffering from mould or damp in any area of your property in Whitnash, you can contact a competent damp proofing specialist for the best advice.


As with pretty much any home improvement project, the most reliable recommendations for a specialist come from friends and relatives. Always get at least 3 or 4 different quotations from various local companies, and if you have any doubts you can ask to see evidence of qualifications and professional membership certificates, before hiring any damp proofing services.

Keep an eye out for qualifications and membership from organisations such as the Property Care Association (PCA) or the Damp Proofing Association (DPA), or contractors holding the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) accreditations.

Membership of the PCA or DPA guarantees that your chosen damp proofing provider is properly qualified and has the necessary experience to perform a first class damp proofing service. Such professional memberships also means that there are certain guarantees for any remedial work completed.
