How Does Damp Affect My Property?

The effects of damp can be many, impacting both the property and the people who occupy it. The longer that damp ignored in the home, the more serious the issue can become.

There are several issues that can occur to your property when there is a damp problem. Damp in walls greatly reduces their ability to insulate the property, generally resulting in a much colder environment. This necessitates the use of more energy in heating your home. Damp can spread around the property into woodwork and brickwork, which causes crumbling plaster and rotting floors. Not only does damp ruin your decor, it can also lead to structural damage, if left for extended periods of time. Dry rot and wet rot can occur from damp coming into contact with timber- for example, when floors and timber beams absorb moisture from a wall.

A damp environment creates the perfect habitat for mould to grow, often as a result of condensation and humidity issues. Fungal microbes thrive in damp conditions, so it is possible that you may notice green or black mould developing on your walls and ceilings, if your home has a damp problem.

Mould can aggravate and cause serious health problems to those spending a lot of time in the property. It can lead to the development of aggravation of issues such as asthma, particularly to vulnerable people such as children, adolescents and the elderly. It can also affect the immune system, which therefore makes people more susceptible to other illnesses.

Types of Damp

Rising Damp

Rising damp is the most commonly known variety of damp, an issue we come across often when damp proofing Goole. Rising damp occurs when water is drawn up through a building’s walls via ‘capillary action’, which works much like the blood vessels in our bodies. Moisture is absorbed upwards by the brickwork and transfers to adjacent building materials, causing damage as it goes.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is another variation of damp that impacts many of buildings throughout Goole. Largely a problem in cellars or basements with earth-retaining walls, the brickwork absorbs water from the external earth which then soaks through into the home. This eventually reaches the internal surface of walls and causes damage.

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 Goole. 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 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

When you discover damp in your property, it is important to act quickly. If damp is left to worsen, the problems that it creates can increase. Unchecked moisture can cause further considerable damage, ruining timber flooring and decorations. Ultimately, the damp may damage the building’s structure, which can come with a costly repair bill. Get in touch with us as soon as you spot any damp for a completely free survey.

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 Goole cost?

The cost of damp proofing Goole properties really depends on the damage as well as the size of the property. It is essential to have an expert survey your home or building so you receive a quote that is accurate for your damp issue and property. When you get a quote from us you can be confident that there won’t be any nasty surprises along the way.

How long does damp proofing Goole take?

We aim to complete our work in the time our Surveyor specifies after they have observed your property. The time taken varies according to the size of the project, with a small job taking as little as 2-5 days. Time also needs to be considered for further drying once the wall is plastered. This is to ensure the work is as effective as it can be and the treatment will last a long time. We always aim to complete our work in the time quoted to you, never wasting your time or taking longer than necessary.
