Rising Damp

Pontefract homes are commonly affected by two types of damp, rising damp being the most common. Water travels upwards in walls through what is referred to as the ‘capillary action’. Via this natural process, water is drawn upwards from the ground and into a property, causing damage as it goes. Signs of this kind of damp include damage to your décor, such as the previously mentioned paint and wallpaper issues.

Our CSRT Surveyors are experts and can identify the cause of rising damp, recommending the appropriate treatment to get rid of it for good. PCAQ Technicians, trained specialists in damp proofing Pontefract, carry out all damp associated works, ensuring that your home becomes dry and stays dry, wherever you are in Yorkshire.

Penetrating Damp

A less common form of damp is penetrating damp. This is particularly an issue for cellars and basements where the walls are surrounded by saturated earth. Being in contact with the ground means that these walls are constantly exposed to moisture, often under water pressure which can increase the severity of the problem that is created. Again, travelling via ‘capillary action’ to penetrate and moisten the wall, potentially creating a cold environment where mould might grow and decoration might be spoiled. The presence of a wet and humid environment can give rise to the formation of mould, exacerbating respiratory issues, as well as making the home harder to keep warm.

Other issues that can cause penetrating dampness are:

  • Broken guttering
  • Cracked render
  • Damaged windowsills

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 Pontefract. 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 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.

FAQs

How much does damp proofing cost?

Damp proofing Pontefract work varies considerably in price, which is why it is always sensible to have an expert inspect the areas in need of treatment first. At Allerton Damp, we will always provide a full quotation or estimate to you prior to carrying out any project. Additionally, our staff are always happy to discuss the range of options available to you as, more often than not, there is more than one solution to any damp problem.

How long does damp proofing take?

This depends on the size of the project, but generally, if a project is reasonably small, it might be possible to complete within 2-5 working days. Thereafter, we recommend that any walls which have been treated and replastered are left to dry out for a good period of time before redecoration.
