How Does Damp Affect my Home?

The effect of damp can be considerable, not only can it impact a property it can affect the health of the people who live in them. The longer that damp affects a home, the more widespread the issues can become and the more you’ll notice the damage that it causes. For example, when damp affects walls, it reduces their ability to insulate, resulting in a much colder home environment. You use more energy (and spend more money!) heating your home and it often has very little effect.

Damp can spread to woodwork and plaster, causing damage to both; in plasterwork, you might notice crumbling or cracking. Affected walls can develop structural issues and begin to deteriorate. Other nearby structures such as floors and timber beams can absorb the moisture, which can lead to timber decay and/or infestation.

Damp creates the perfect environment for mould to thrive in your home, it is common where homes suffer from condensation. The spores which cause the growth of mould need damp conditions in order to proliferate; you might notice black, orange or green mould developing on walls, ceilings or even in cupboards which are areas in which this problem can be found. Mould, particularly black mould, can be a risk to your health. For example, it can aggravate an existing asthma condition, particularly in children, adolescents or vulnerable adults. It also lowers the immune system of people of all ages, increasing your likelihood of developing other illnesses.

Types of Damp

Rising Damp

Rising damp is the variety of damp that is most well-known and often the most common problem for homes and commercial properties in Boston Spa. Rising damp is caused when water is drawn up through a building’s brickwork (or other material) through ‘capillary action’.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is the second variety of damp that affects a large number of different buildings throughout Boston Spa and the surrounding area. It’s largely a problem in cellars or basements with earth retaining walls – these are walls surrounded by damp earth. The brickwork absorbs water from outside which then soaks into the material and eventually reaches the internal surface of a wall, causing damage to plasterwork.

From our local base, we undertake damp proofing Boston Spa to protect homes and commercial properties. Our work is carried out by our qualified Technicians who are local, Yorkshire experts.

Damp Treatments we use

Allerton ALL DAMP DPC Gun
CHEMICAL DAMP PROOF COURSE

Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, is suitable for most properties throughout Boston Spa. This intelligent damp treatment can be applied retrospectively and adds a water-resistant layer between your building’s brickwork.

When installed by Allerton we can guarantee its effectiveness for 20 years.

RENDER ADDITIVE

A specially-formulated render additive which acts as a water inhibitor and plasticiser. When carrying out plastering inside homes, our staff use ALLDAMP Render Additive, turning their plasterwork into a damp proof barrier to future water ingress.

ALLDAMP Render Additive is used in most Allerton repair projects. With this system, homeowners can redecorate and furnish with the confidence that damp will not return in future.

DAMP PROOFING MEMBRANE

A specially-designed wall covering, which creates a damp proof surface over which plasterboard and plaster can be applied. The ALLDAMP damp proofing membrane creates a damp proof barrier and cavity between the existing brickwork and wall surface, preventing future damp penetration.

ALLDAMP Damp Proofing Membrane is an incredibly versatile product which is suitable for use above and below ground. It is our go-to product for carrying out basement waterproofing projects.

Allerton were exceptional at keeping in touch with me from the first phone call, right through to the quality control visit after work was completed. All the team were friendly, professional and ensured the disruption to the rest of my home whilst works were ongoing were kept to a minimum. They cleaned the site daily and ensured we were happy with progress throughout the project. Pleasure to work with.

Allerton provided a highly professional service from start to finish and did a quality job. Their expert visited the property and explained the proposed solution to condensation in a clear way. The information provided on e-mail was clear and comprehensive with an efficient e-payment system.

Allerton’s carried out damp treatment work on our property. They were quick, efficient and tidy. Changes to our requirements were dealt with well and nothing was too much trouble. Indeed we appreciated the hassle free way we were dealt with, the fixed quote with no “hidden extras” or later additional costs that we weren’t expecting. A great service and good work.

Very professional and reliable company to deal with, after being let down by others not turning up, it was refreshing to deal with Allerton, from arriving to survey and quote through to the finished job. The team of two who carried out the work, were very professional, polite and friendly and did a great job of the work itself and cleaning up afterwards.

Me and my partner cannot recommend Allerton enough. From day 1 they were professional and the level of communication from the start of the job to the final day was exceptional. Constant messages asking questions and for reassurance. A great Company for all damp proofing works but also for the additional works as well, like plastering, boarding, electrics etc.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

How much does damp proofing cost?

There’s not a single answer to the cost of damp proofing in Boston Spa as it depends on the damage as well as the size of your property – and potentially other other unique requirements. It is always so important to have an expert survey your home or building so you receive an accurate quote that comes with no nasty surprises! We at Allerton Damp want to ensure you’re completely satisfied with your damp proofing journey and part of ensuring that is that you receive an honest and friendly service.

How long does damp proofing take?

We always aim to complete damp proofing work in the time specified by your expert Surveyor. It varies according to the size of the project; a small job could take as little as 2-5 days. Once the wall is plastered, it also requires further drying time to ensure the work is as effective as it can be and the treatment lasts for years. In every job we undertake, we will always give you an approximate time frame and ensure we work as effectively as possible – never wasting your time or intruding on your space for longer than necessary.
