Causes of Damp

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:

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

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.

Signs of Damp

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:

  • Wrinkling of wallpaper
  • Mould and discolouration
  • Cracks in walls
  • Salt deposits visible on walls
  • Blistering plaster

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 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.

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.

FOUND DAMP?

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. 

If you believe that you have found damp, get in touch as soon as possible. We offer free damp surveys in the Leeds area and will have your property repaired in good time.

Reviews

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.
