How Does Damp Affect My Property?

Damp can lead to a wide range of issues for both the property and the people who spend a lot of their time in it. It is important to have damp seen to as soon as you can; the longer that a damp problem goes unchecked, the more expensive repair costs can be.

When walls are damp it greatly reduces their ability to effectively insulate a building. This means that it will take more energy – and therefore money – to heat your home. Damp can spread into woodwork and plaster, so you may notice crumbling plasterwork or the onset of timber decay and infestation. When damp affects the home, it can spread to nearby structural timbers such as floorboards and joists. In time, this can lead to wet rot and dry rot, if left untreated.

Damp properties provide the ideal environment for fungal microbes to thrive, which can lead to mould growth on your walls and ceilings. Black mould in particular can be seriously damaging to a person’s health, especially those who are more vulnerable such as children, adolescents, elderly people and those with existing health conditions. Black mould can aggravate breathing conditions such as asthma and other respiratory problems, whilst also affecting the immune system, increasing a person’s likelihood of developing other illnesses.

Types of Damp

Rising Damp

Rising describes the variation of damp where moisture enters the walls from the ground and rises up via capillary action. Beginning in the lower wall, the damp is drawn up through the naturally present pores within building materials. This is then absorbed by brick and plasterwork, spreading damp throughout the internal surface of a wall.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp occurs when moisture is absorbed into walls laterally, rather than from the ground up. Most commonly, this is seen in basements and cellars due to walls being surrounded by earth (earth-retaining walls). It can, however, sometimes occur above-ground as a result of leaks from pipework or rainwater goods, for example.

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 Doncaster. The 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.

FOUND DAMP?

Act now

As soon as you discover damp in your home, it is essential that you call damp proofers in Doncaster straight away. The longer damp is left untreated, the more of an impact it is going to have upon your property. Not only this, but it is also harder to treat and more expensive to repair, once the problem has spread.

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 Doncaster cost?

When it comes to damp proofing, price varies greatly. This is because there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution to the problem as every job and solution is different depending on the needs of the property. The extent of the damage, the size of your property and treatment used will impact the overall price you pay for the service. In order to get an accurate quote and ensure any damp issue is properly diagnosed, it is important to get a professional to survey your property. At Allerton Damp we offer completely free surveys, giving you an accurate quote before undertaking any work. With us, there are no hidden costs.

How long does damp proofing Doncaster take?

How long damp proofing Doncaster takes is dependent on the size of the project. A small damp issue can take as little as 2-5 days, whereas a larger problem could take longer than this. A wall also needs time to dry once the work is completed to ensure that the damp proofing job is as effective as it can be. When you get a free damp survey, our experts will be able to provide you with an approximate time frame along with the price.
