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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
