How Does Damp Affect My Property?

Having damp in your property can lead to problems for both the building and those who spend an extended amount of time there. As soon as damp is noticed, it is important to call in the experts. The longer that damp is left, the worse the problem can become and therefore you are much more likely to see the detrimental impacts.

When damp gets into your property, if not treated in a timely manner, it can begin to spread into woodwork and plaster. This will cause crumbling plasterwork, which can eventually lead to the structure of your wall deteriorating. When the damp has successfully entered your property, the surrounding material can also begin to absorb the moisture. This includes wooden materials, which can lead to wet rot decay setting in, if left untreated. Damp walls greatly reduce the ability for them to insulate the building effectively. This means that it will take more energy, time and money to heat your property.

A damp home can provide an ideal environment for fungal microbes to thrive, which can cause mould to grow on walls and ceilings. Various types can develop, though it is black mould in particular that can be damaging to your health. This is especially dangerous for those who are more vulnerable such as children, adolescents, elderly people and those with existing health conditions. Black mould can aggravate asthma and other respiratory problems. As well as this, it can negatively impact your immune system which makes you more susceptible to other dangerous illnesses.

Types of Damp

Rising damp

Rising damp is an issue we come across commonly when damp proofing Selby. Rising damp occurs when a building is in contact with the ground and the dampness from this is drawn up into the walls. This happens through ‘capillary action’ which describes the natural movement of moisture on a microscopic level via a porous material. This moisture is then absorbed by adjacent brick and plaster, leading to damp spreading to further areas.

Penetrating damp

Penetrating damp is another variation of damp that impacts buildings throughout Selby. Most commonly this is a problem in cellars or basements that have earth retaining walls which can cause the adjacent brickwork to absorb water from the surrounding ground. This will eventually reach internal wall surfaces, causing damage to plasterwork.

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 Selby. 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.

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.
