Damp Proofing Project at the University of Manchester
One of our previous projects was to carry out damp proofing works at the University of Manchester. Our team in the North West, we asked to investigate a damp problem in the basement.
The issue found upon inspection of the property was the sub-basement had been suffering from problems of water running down the walls which led to puddles of water on the floor. Another damp issue the building was suffering from was condensation which was due to 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 as all the works carried out was completed in less than a week and the client was left satisfied with a dry basement.
What to Expect from Our Timber and Damp Surveys
If you suspect any damp or timber issues in your property, then having a damp and timber survey through Timberwise is the first step in diagnosing the problem and then eradicating the issue from the property.
Our surveyors and technicians have invaluable knowledge and 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 damp proof 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.
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 the moisture.
