Expertise in the Sheffield Area

Coal and steel industries enabled Sheffield to grow as a city through the early 1900’s. To meet this substantial growth of industries, there had to be housing to accommodate the workers. According to the Office for National Statistics website: Over 25% of that housing stills exists today of the houses built pre 1919.

Older properties are more likely to suffer from condensation which 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, this 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 issue is always best to have a Sheffield damp proof specialist provide a full in depth inspection of the building.

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 capillary action. Rising damp is most common in older buildings where the damp proof course has become damaged due to the area around the property being risen from the property owner adding a driveway or path.

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.
