Damp Proofing

At some point in time, most houses suffer from a form of damp. There are three main types of Damp; these are:

  • Penetrating Damp
  • Rising Damp
  • Condensation

Any of these damp problems are cause for concern if left untreated as they can damage not only the décor of your home but more importantly, the structure of it. From a health point of view, problems such as Asthma, Rheumatism, Bacteria and Mites are more commonly seen in people whose property is suffering from some form of damp.

If you suspect that your property may be suffering from any damp problem, please take action now and contact us for a no obligation survey.

Tanking/Basement/Cellar Conversions


Floors and Walls in rooms below ground level are often subject to lateral damp penetration.

These areas can be transformed into comfortable living accommodation by using specialist basement waterproofing techniques.

There are two main ways of doing this, which are; - (1) Tanking - Cementitious Multi-Coat Rendering (2) Cavity Drainage Membrane. For further information or a no obligation survey, please contact us.
