Leeds boasts buildings from many periods, spanning hundreds of years, and every building requires specialist, and unique care to prevent deterioration of the property. As your local Leeds damp proofing experts we can be trusted to deliver the best possible outcome for you and your home.
Leeds and the wider West Yorkshire area is home to some of the UK’s oldest buildings, making them susceptible to water ingress and damp. Whilst there are many causes of damp, the most common that we see in the Leeds area are:
Our damp proofing experts will find the source of the problem and apply the most suitable treatment. Without proper damp proofing, the excess moisture in your home can cause a range of issues from mould and wood rot to a woodworm infestation, impacting the structural integrity and safety of your property.
Rising damp is the most well-known variety of damp that can affect Leeds’ homes and commercial properties. Rising damp occurs for a variety of reasons; it is one of the leading causes of the need for home repairs in the Leeds area.
Penetrating damp is most common in basements as the earth surrounding the external walls always carries some degree of moisture which will penetrate into the home without a suitable damp proofing system in place. As this moisture can spread quickly, it’s important to get this treated immediately.
The key signs of damp are:
Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, is suitable for most properties throughout Leeds. 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.
If left untreated, damp can cause serious issues to both your property’s health and your own. The three most common issues caused by damp are wet rot, woodworm and dry rot.
Wet rot often occurs when moisture levels are above 20%, stimulating the growth of the fungus ‘Coniophora puteana’ which feeds on damp wood.
Woodworm feed on a range of timber, whether it be your furniture or the property’s structure. A woodworm infestation can cause serious damage to your property’s structural integrity.
Dry rot is the most serious issue caused by damp, it has a unique ability to transport water along its growth, meaning that it can even spread to areas which are unaffected by damp and cause serious damage.
