How Our Cheshire Damp Proofing Surveyors Provide Treatment

Having damp is a common problem and having a damp proofing specialist in Cheshire can help get rid of these problems from your property. The first step is to identify the issue, below are the different types of damp problems that can affect your property.


Condensation is the most common damp problem for properties in Cheshire. The main cause of condensation is poor ventilation throughout the property.

Lack of ventilation can occur in bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms usually where there is a lot of warm air. The signs of condensation are damp musty smells, black spot mould and droplets of water on the window sill.

Rising Damp

Rising damp occurs mainly in older properties due to the damp protection becoming damaging or nonexistent. The rising damp is the procedure of groundwater finding its way through the building and depositing salts onto the walls of the property.

A damp proof course is the main damp proofing method of protecting your home from rising damp. The tell tale signs of rising damp are that there will be damp patches on the walls and the plaster will start to peel off the wall.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is the damp problem caused by the poor maintenance of the building such as damaged rainwater goods or blocked gutters. Unlike rising damp, penetrating damp is the process of moisture moving horizontally through the inner walls of the property.

Penetrating damp can cause significant damage to your building from dry rot if the damp issue is not treated properly in an efficient amount of time.

Work Carried Out by Timberwise Cheshire team

We are proud of the work that we do at Timberwise and we like to show examples of this in our case studies. In one such case study, Timberwise were called out to look at a collection of estate buildings on Walton Hall Estate near Warrington, that come together to form a cycle museum.

A survey from our damp and timber experts identified that due to defects caused by damaged rainwater goods, slipped and missing roof slates as well as damaged flashing, water penetration had occurred resulting in damage to the roof timbers.

Wet rot fungus was also evidently causing a structural breakdown of the timber, woodworm was also discovered which weakened the timbers even further. The solution to the problems encountered was to strip out the existing damaged roof and completely renew it.

Damp and Timber Solutions from Our Cheshire Team

Timberwise Cheshire offers a range of property care solutions. For solving damp issues our solutions range from injecting a damp proof cream through to electro osmotic damp proofing.

For treating woodworm our technicians use insecticide applied directly to the affected wood which is then absorbed into the wood killing off the woodworm as they exit the timber.
