Local Area of Liverpool

Liverpool has a household population of approximately 333,000 people live in around 156,000 properties. In the early 1900s, Liverpool grew as a major centre due to having shipping of goods and manufacturing base. The service industries dominate the income into the city but the port is still even important today.

Ariel view of Liverpool

To support the growing major manufacturing industries there was a large number of housing constructed to support the increasing demand for workers. This meant that approximately 34.9% of the housing stock was built pre-1919 which above the average for England which is at 24.5%. The problem with older housing is that it is more susceptible to having damp problems. Timberwise are here to help with all your damp and timber issues occurring in your property.

How Our Liverpool Damp Proofing Surveyors Inspect Your Property

Damp can occur for a number of reasons such as poor ventilation, poor maintenance and damp proof course (DPC). In the past, dampness was mainly present in older housing as they weren’t designed to prevent against the excess build-up of moisture. Historically, Liverpool housing was built up using permeable materials with no attempt to use any waterproofing measures.

Having damp problems in the past was largely due to poor maintenance of the property which has led to leaks. More recently it has been down to poorly developed building work by builders which has not allowed the moisture to escape.

If you find that you have damp problems in your property then we recommend our Liverpool damp proofing specialists to fix any of the damp issues affecting your property. Our damp surveyors in Liverpool will recommend the use a number of damp proofing solutions to treat the issue. If the surveyor spots signs of rising damp, Timberwise will recommend works should be carried out through the use of a unique product called Dri Wise Pressure Injection. This product is a water-based product that creates a barrier so that moisture can not pass through and ensures that all cracks will be filled.
