Causes of Damp

Huddersfield and West Yorkshire offer some of the country’s most beautiful and oldest properties. However, as older properties naturally deteriorate, their beauty and integrity can lessen as damp issues set in. Some of the most common causes of damp in Huddersfield include:

  • The absence of a working damp proof course
  • High external ground levels
  • Leaking pipework
  • Missing roof tiles
  • Cracked mortar or brickwork

If left untreated the water ingress caused by these issues can allow moisture to spread throughout your property and create serious damp problems. If you believe your property has damp issues get in touch today for a free consultation.

Signs of Damp

A variety of defects in your property can allow water to be absorbed and cause damp issues. 

In Huddersfield the most common type of damp we find is rising damp. Rising damp occurs when excess moisture is absorbed upwards from the ground and into the walls of your home, leading to damp issues which can cause structural damage in time.

Additionally, penetrating damp is common in Huddersfield. Rather than water being drawn up from the ground, penetrating damp moves laterally (sideways) through brickwork; it is common in earth-retaining walls such as basements and cellars.

The key signs of damp are:

  • Peeling or bubbling wallpaper
  • Mould and black mould spots
  • Cracks in walls
  • Salt deposits on your walls

Damp Treatments we use

Allerton ALL DAMP DPC Gun
CHEMICAL DAMP PROOF COURSE

Popular in Huddersfield as it can be applied retrospectively, our chemical damp proof course adds a water-resistant quality to the mortar between your property’s brickwork. The ALLDAMP chemical damp treatment is exclusive to Allerton and comes with a 20-year guarantee when installed by Allerton.

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

The ALLDAMP damp proofing membrane creates a damp proof barrier and cavity between the existing brickwork and internal wall surface, preventing future damp penetration.

ALLDAMP Damp Proofing Membrane is an incredibly versatile product which is suitable for use above and below ground, including for waterproofing basements.

FOUND DAMP?

Untreated damp facilitates the growth of wet and dry rot as well as woodworm infestation, all of which will cause your building’s materials to decay, compromising the structural integrity of your building. 

If you see any signs of damp, get in touch with a damp specialist in Huddersfield immediately. The sooner you speak to a damp proofing expert the sooner you’ll have peace of mind that your building is safe and sound.

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.
