Damp Problems Affecting Properties in Bath
Bath is based in the south west of England, these areas are prone to storms from the North Atlantic ocean. Heavy rainfall has led to flooding in the past and still is a problem now. During the winter months, Bath has the most rainfall so there is potential for penetrating damp to occur.
Bath is known for its historic architecture including the Bath Abbey and has a population of more than 80,000. The Roman spa town has the most stunning architecture with its long history you can see why this is a beautiful setting to live in. With the historical buildings there comes the potential of damp issues occurring.
The Georgian buildings have been hit by plenty of bad weather throughout the years and poor building maintenance such as leaking pipes can all lead to potential damp problems. If the damp problem is left untreated for a long period of time then the dampness can evolve into more problematic issues such as wet rot and dry rot.
With so many residents living in these period properties, it is essential that get in touch with a specialist damp proofer to take care of your property.
Damp Proofing Case Study in Bath
A recent project carried out by our Bath team was to inspect a property constructed in the 19th century. From the timber and damp survey, the surveyor noticed that the property was affected by all forms of damp: penetrating, rising damp and condensation.
The surveyor all noticed from the external inspection that the property had no damp proof course in place or remedial treatment put in place.
The Bath surveyor advised that in order to treat rising damp in the building an electro osmotic damp proofing system should be put in place.
The system works by providing an electronic current into the wall of the building which acts a barrier to stop the damp from rising damp.
What Goes into a Bath Damp Survey?
If you believe that you might have damp occurring in your home then it is best to get in touch with a qualified damp proof specialist to provide an inspection.
Once you have contacted a specialist then the surveyor will provide a full inspection for both interior and exterior walls of property for signs of damp. Once the dampness has been spotted, the causes for the damp problem occurring will be assessed to see how it can be rectified.
There are a number of reasons for damp to affect your property, from having no damp proof course in place to the lack of ventilation issues. Once the causes for the dampness have been outlined, the solutions will be put forward to the property owner along with the cost and the timescale for the completion of the works.
