How Our Damp Specialists Treated the University of Manchester

One of our most prominent projects was to carry out damp proofing works at the University of Manchester. The Tinberwise damp specialists in Manchester were asked to investigate a damp problem in the basement of the University.

The issue found upon inspection of the property was that the sub-basement had been suffering from water running down the walls, which had led to puddles of water on the floor.

Another damp issue the building was suffering from was condensation, which was due to the steam coming from the room above leaving moisture on the staircase.

 

The solution provided by Timberwise was to install a cavity wall membrane onto the walls. Having a cavity wall membrane in place will act as a barrier to control the moisture and direct the water into the premier drainage channel.

The project was a real success, with all of the works carried out completed in less than a week, and the client left satisfied with a dry basement.

Rising Damp Manchester

Rising damp is a common problem in Manchester due to the amount of rainfall that occurs in the area. Rising damp is essentially the process of the moisture rising up the ground higher up the structure of the building.

The main form of protection against rising damp is via a damp proof course, which provides a horizontal barrier near the ground within the walls of the property. Damp proof courses are installed in all new buildings, however, this is not apparent in older housing. This means that any property older than 50 years old that has not had a DPC installed is at risk of developing rising damp.

 

Penetrating Damp Manchester

Penetrating damp is a damp problem that finds its way through the inside of the building. If there are periods of heavy rainfall, and your property is suffering from faulty rainwater goods then your property is vulnerable to penetrating damp.

Penetrating damp can cause serious damage. If the issue is not dealt with quickly, penetrating damp can lead to wood rot and woodworm attack. It is important to contact your damp proofing specialist in Manchester to rectify the damp problem as soon as possible.

How Damp and Timber Surveys in Manchester are Carried Out

If you suspect any damp or timber issues in your property, then having a timber and damp survey from Timberwise is going to be a great first step in diagnosing the problem and then eradicating the issue from the property.

Our surveyors and technicians have invaluable knowledge and an intricate understanding of Manchester, meaning our teams can diagnose and treat your property issues effectively, recommending the best course of treatment for you and your property.

One of our Manchester based timber and damp surveyors will provide a detailed inspection of the property. Both the interior and exterior of the building will be assessed for property care issues.

All the treatments for the works that will be carried out will be explained in a damp and timber report by the surveyor on site with you.

For example, if your property is being affected by rising damp, one of the solutions to treat this issue is the installation of a chemical damp proof course.

If implemented, this will be injected into the wall to act as a barrier against moisture.
