Expertise in the Sheffield Area

Coal and steel industries enable Sheffield to grew as a city through the early 1900’s. To meet this substantial growth of industries, there had to be housing to accommodate the workers needed. Over 25% of that housing stills exists today of the houses built pre 1919. This type of older properties is more likely to suffer from condensation and can lead to further timber problems. For more about condensation check out the Sheffield Government website about dealing with condensation.

The city of Sheffield lies in close proximity of the Pennines which can mean that wet climate is more frequent and a large majority of the housing is located in the lower-lying areas. Which is another potential cause of damp occurring in the Sheffield area.

The Damp Issues that are Causing Problems to your Sheffield Property

There are 3 main types of damp problems that could be causing damage to your property and these are rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation. When identifying the damp issue is always best to have a Sheffield damp proof specialist provide a full in depth inspection of the building.

Rising damp in Sheffield

Rising Damp

Rising Damp is a form of damp that affects the walls of the building and it occurs from moisture from the ground rises up through a capillary action. Rising damp is most common in older buildings where the damp proof course has become due to the area around the property being risen from the property owner adding a driveway or path.

If damp is left then there can be permanent damage to the walls and also the safety of the residents in the building. To ensure your property is treated correctly then our damp proofers in Sheffield are ready to provide assistance. All of our surveyors are CRST qualified to get rid of damp by providing free helpful advice and an accurate quotation for any works that be carried out.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is a form of damp that builds up horizontally through the walls of the building. Penetrating damp is often misdiagnosed with rising damp but can lead to further damage such as wet rot and dry rot. Penetrating damp can occur if the property has had damage to the rainwater goods.

During the periods of heavy rainfall, the rainwater will usually evaporate out of the brickwork but if the property is suffering from external defects then the moisture will fail to evaporate to pass through the inner surface.
