Our expert team provide woodworm, dry rot and damp proofing services for all types of residential and commercial properties in South Wales. Cardiff is the port city on the south coast of Wales where the River Taff meets the Severn Estuary. It was proclaimed Wales’s capital in 1955 and is the most populated area in Wales with a population of 447,287.

The months where rainfall is at its highest are between January and March. If your property doesn’t have full protection against damp e.g. a damp proof course, then your property could be susceptible to rising damp, penetrating damp or condensation, especially during this time.

How Our Surveyors in Cardiff Carry Out Damp Proofing

Dampness is one of the most frequent problems that property owners across Cardiff are being faced with. Condensation is the most frequent problem found in properties and is caused by poor ventilation and the mismanagement of the central heating.

The typical symptoms of condensation are black spot mould, peeling plaster and a damp musty smell. To get rid of condensation from your property you need to improve the ventilation in the property or by installing kitchen and bathroom fans.

Identifying the correct damp issue is not only important to ensure that the damp is treated correctly but also to prevent further damage in the future. The dampness in buildings can lead to more serious issues such as structural deterioration and timber decay.

To ensure that damp proofing in Cardiff is carried out effectively we recommend that you have a damp specialist inspect your property. Our surveyors are fully qualified so they can provide the very best advice and professional service to all of our customers. If you are needing a damp survey, Timberwise has a range of damp proofing solutions available.

Our damp proof specialists are fully qualified surveyors who have many years of practical experience in the construction industry and hold a CSRT qualification by the Property Care Association.

Work Carried Out By Our Damp and Timber Specialists

We have carried out a number of projects across the Cardiff area, one including a dry rot infestation that was found at a beautiful Victorian property located in Penylan.

Our surveyor found the fungal decay in the property and it was noticed that there was poor subfloor ventilation. Having poor ventilation can lead to high moisture levels surfacing on timbers which lead to the presence of dry rot.

To eradicate dry rot, the team removed and replaced all the infected timber. The Timberwise team also improved the subfloor ventilation as well as inserting a new damp proof course to eliminate the issue of rising damp which could have further dampness on the existing timbers.
