Knottingley Damp proofing experts

Damp can have detrimental effects both on your home and on your health. It can affect your decor — you can spot damp through wrinkling or peeling wallpaper, for example — the temperature of your room and heating efficiency, and even the structural integrity of your property. Damp also increases your chances of developing respiratory problems, including asthma, and allergies. Both damp and mould (as damp creates the perfect environment for mould to grow) are said to seriously affect those with compromised immune systems. You might find yourself getting colds or other illnesses more often with damp in the home.

Types of Damp

There are two varieties of damp. They have different causes and, therefore, often require different treatments, but both have the same effects on your home…

Rising Damp

The most well-known variety of damp is rising damp. This refers to moisture that affects walls by being drawn up from the ground. It tends to occur through a process called capillary action. Over time, damp will rise upwards through brick, stone and mortar and make its way into the home, unless a suitable barrier or treatment has been installed. When damp enters the home, it can spread to other nearby building materials, causing considerable damage as it goes.

If your home in Knottingley is affected by rising damp, then get in touch with Allerton Damp today for a full and comprehensive quote. We have a team of CSRT Surveyors that are local to you and can complete a professional survey. They can identify the cause of the issue and suggest the best solution.

Types of Damp

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is another form of damp that can affect homes and properties in Knottingley. It is caused when water enters the building’s walls from a source which doesn’t involve rising from the ground. The most common instances of penetrating damp are found in cellars and basements. Basements have earth-retaining walls and are commonly surrounded by saturated earth. Water moves laterally from the soil into the walls, again through a process of capillary action. Once it has permeated the brickwork, it then spreads into the internal wall plasterwork, causing damage and leaving an unsightly wall finish.

Penetrating damp can also occur in above-ground walls from various sources: defective windowsills leak water onto the wall, broken gutters, cracked render or damaged brickwork can also contribute to the problem. If you spot penetrating damp in your home, then get in touch with experts straight away. The longer you leave it, the more difficult the problem is to solve and the repair can become more costly.

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 Knottingley. This intelligent damp treatment can be applied retrospectively and adds a water-resistant layer between your building’s brickwork.

When installed by Allerton Damp, we 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?

The cost of damp proofing in Knottingley varies because every project has different requirements and parameters; there’s no ‘one price fits all’ solution. However, an expert Surveyor can inspect the areas in need of treatment, work out the required treatments and create an accurate quote for your property. We are also more than happy to talk to you about any other options available as there are often multiple solutions to any one damp problem.

How long does damp proofing take?

The time it takes between beginning a project and completing it is dependant upon the size of the job. A reasonably small project could be completed within 2-5 working days, for example, with additional time to dry out the newly replastered walls before redecoration. Our team always work as effectively and efficiently as possible. We recognise that having your home upside down can be a disruption, so we aim to respect your space as much as possible and get the job done as quickly as possible, whilst maintaining our high standards.
