  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you'll find info on what might be causing damp issues in your home or business premises in Yate, and how you can get started with fixing them.


Problems like cracks in brickwork, defective guttering, loose or broken roof tiles and cavity wall problems are common external factors that can cause penetrating damp. Internally, damaged shower trays, overflowing baths or basins and dripping or burst pipes, can lead to penetrating damp. If water continues to seep into the woodwork and walls, the obvious signs over time will be dark damp patches on walls, peeling paintwork and broken or blistered plaster.

If left untreated for a while, a leaking roof can cause wet rot to arise in the timbers of your roof. Even though it's fortunate that wet rot doesn't have an impact on brickwork, in a worst case scenario, you may need to replace the whole roof if the timbers of your roof become structurally unsound. An unfamiliar musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your timbers and signs of black fungus, could all suggest the presence of wet rot.

Simple actions like repointing dodgy brickwork, cleaning and checking your roof and gutters for leaks and examining piping for leaks, will be the basic preventative measures. As part of an overall damp proofing arrangement, your local Yate damp proofing company will check out all these areas.


Condensation Damp Yate UK (01454)

One of the most common forms of damp in Yate properties, condensation is super easy to identify. When moist, warm air comes into contact with colder surfaces (such as windows), small droplets of water immediately appear. It's a problem due to inadequate ventilation in areas where high humidity is present, i.e. kitchens, bathrooms and boiler rooms.

To avoid condensation problems, simple solutions include ensuring that there is sufficient ventilation in the affected areas, and wiping up any droplets the moment they appear. This might call for the installation or updating of extractors, cooker hoods and air bricks to help remove the damp air to the outside of the building.

There could possibly be issues with sucking in damp air from outside, and by carrying out an in-depth damp proofing survey an expert in Yate will identify factors that contribute to the situation. Airflow has to be regulated properly to successfully minimise condensation, and a knowledgeable damp proofing specialist will give advice and offer solutions on this question.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Yate Gloucestershire


A damp proof course or membrane has been installed as standard on homes built in Great Britain since 1875. It is perfectly possible that you may not have one fitted if your home or property in Yate was constructed before this time. If your home was constructed after this date, but you're still suffering with rising damp, it might be that your damp proof membrane has been damaged.

Rising damp can be hard to distinguish, but some areas to look out for are; "tide marks" on walls, white powdery deposits appearing on walls or being found on floor surfaces and crumbling or rotten skirtings. If you see or think that you may have any of these, it is possible you have a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Yate Gloucestershire

Simply checking your property's outside walls to find out if you've got a damp course can be the first step towards managing your rising damp. For adequate protection it needs to be 150 millimetres above ground level. You could dig the surrounding soil away to generate this space if it is currently not sufficient, or you could install a higher DPM if the former is not possible.

You could have more problematic issues if you discover that your DPM is okay, and it could be that the dampness is rising from the ground, through your flooring, and into your home's walls, which will be an even more troubling state of affairs.

Yate damp proofing technicians will quickly be able to figure out the explanation for your rising damp issues, and employing a number of different techniques will quickly resolve the problem. A damp proof cream (such as Dryzone or Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall if you have an older property with no DPM, or one that is damaged over a wide area. This special cream is injected with a nozzle into holes drilled at intervals along the mortar joint, and before the cream sets it turns to liquid and penetrates into the surrounding brickwork creating a barrier that is repellent to water.

In situations where damp proofing cream injection is not an appropriate treatment, or where your membrane is severely damaged, putting in a complete new damp proof course could be neccessary. Although this is of course a pretty drastic course of action, it might be the best way to solve your rising damp problems in an effective way.

For minimal areas of membrane damage, yet another potential remedy could be to coat with a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion. This will be applied underneath your floor coverings, so tiles, laminate flooring and carpets must be lifted prior to work being undertaken. This is particularly effective in cellar areas as a part of the "tanking" procedure to make a room that's watertight. For further protection in such troublesome areas, your Yate damp proof technician might advise the use of building paper (a special foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has has dried out completely.

Tanking: In cellars, basements and below ground areas of a house, "tanking" is a process where any exposed surfaces are painted with a watertight coating. Any wall covering and plaster must be removed and the surfaces in question prepared correctly before work commences, since this waterproof coating must be applied on the base surface of floors and walls. You can replaster and decorate over it, after the coating has dried out completely. You must invariably obtain more than one specialist opinion on whether this really is the only resolution to your rising damp, because this is a really disruptive process because it needs to be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a property.


To help with condensation issues, you can try using dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are really efficacious. The disadvantage with the use of dehumidifiers in attempting to stop damp is that they merely cover up the cause of the damp, don't cure it. An experienced damp proofing company in Yate will be ready to advise on possible solutions if you're suffering from dampness in any part of your house.


The most reliable recommendations for specialists when it comes to home improvement projects are generally neighbours and friends. Before signing up for any damp proofing services, you should always try to obtain at least 2 or 3 price quotes from a variety of Yate companies. If you are in any doubt about any damp proofing company you could ask to see professional memberships and accreditations.

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

You can be certain that your damp proofing specialist is suitably qualified and has acquired the required experience to perform a high quality damp proof service, if they've got membership of the DPA or PCA. Such professional memberships also means that there are certain guarantees for any work completed.
