Damp Proofing Birmingham

Damp Proofing Specialists in Birmingham

If you have detected discolouration on your wallpaper or walls, or mould around the skirting boards, your property in Birmingham could have a difficulty with rising damp. Rising damp occurs when groundwater penetrates old and deteriorating damp proofing and enters the capillaries of the masonry and brickwork. It’s natural for brickwork to retain some moisture. Nevertheless, if it rises above the damp proofing, it can leave salty deposits, peel paint and crack plaster.

Damp proofing in Birmingham

All new houses in Birmingham will have a modern plastic or bitumen damp proof course, but with older homes, these can break down or not be present at all. We have more than fifty years of experience in installing and carrying remedial works on damp proofing. If you have spotted rising damp in your walls, our fully trained surveyors will assess the extent of the problem and advise on the best course of action.

Combating rising damp in Birmingham

After our surveyors ascertain what remedial action is needed, they will compile a detailed report. Typically with sopping brickwork, the plaster and skirting boards will require removing. Then we drill into the mortar joints and inject a uniquely developed chemical that absorbs the excess moisture, eliminating the damp. Afterwards, we will install plaster resistant to hygroscopic salts which attract water and refit the skirting boards. Our qualified carpenters and plasterers complete all the work we undertake, and we never use sub-contractors.

If you own property in Birmingham and can smell or see rising damp in your walls, then contact the experts at Dampco. We can provide affordable and high-quality damp proofing to guarantee your walls remain moisture-free.
