Damp Proofing Services in Shrewsbury
We are one of the leading experts for damp treatment in Shrewsbury. At some point or another, your property has been affected by having damp appearing on the internal or exterior walls of your property.
If the damp issue is not diagnosed or treated earlier then this can lead to further serious timber-related problems such as wet rot or even dry rot which can cause severe damage to the structural integrity of the building.
Is The Shrewsbury Area Susceptible To Damp Problems?
Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire and is an original market town located within the loop of the River Severn which has faced some major flooding in previous years. When there are areas that are susceptible to flooding then the chances of having damp problems at your house greatly increases.
If the property is suffering from building defects such as a damaged roof, this will mean the property could suffer from penetrating damp. Where there are gaps in the property this provides an opportunity for moisture to penetrate the outer walls of the building.
Shrewsbury also has many old and listed properties which makes them vulnerable to rising damp problems as well. Older properties tend to have either no damp proof course in place or if there is one it may have become damaged over a long period of time. If this is the case, then it could allow moisture to rise up from the ground above one metre in height.
How Our Surveyors in Shrewsbury Team Will Carry Out Damp Proofing?
Before any damp proofing can take place at your property, a qualified surveyor must first carry out a full timber and damp survey.
By carrying out an inspection, the surveyor will assess both inside and outside of the property. The specialist will look to check to see:
- What type of damp issue is causing the damage
- The cause of the damp issue, such as, checking for damaged rainwater goods, poor air ventilation, if the property has a damp proof course installed etc.
- What specific damp proofing solutions will be needed
Once these checks have been made then the surveyor will provide a report to the customer explaining all the details found and what the next step is to fix the problem.
There are a number of different solutions to each damp problem for example, to treat condensation, the specialist will suggest installing extractor fans where there is high moisture content. If penetrating damp is occurring, then we would recommend a builder or roofer to fix the external defects. Rising damp can be treated by having a chemical damp proof course.
