There are two types of damp that can affect your home: rising damp or penetrating damp.
Rising damp is one of the most common and affects houses throughout Wakefield. It is a process in which water penetrates the material of your walls from the ground upwards. It occurs more often in older buildings which might lack protection against damp. Water can rise as a result of ‘capillary action’ and make its way onto the internal surfaces of walls. When moisture has affected a wall in this way, it can spread to other nearby plasterwork and timber.
Penetrating damp affects a property in a similar way to rising damp, but rather than moisture coming from the ground upwards, it moves horizontally through brick and stonework. It is most common in basements and cellars which have walls surrounded by damp earth. Without a suitable damp proofing system, water will soak through the brickwork and cause damage over time.
Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, is suitable for most properties throughout Wakefield. 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.
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.
When damp is discovered, it pays to act fast. If left untreated, any source of damp can cause considerable damage to a home such as the ruin of timber flooring or internal decoration. Getting in touch with us now will help you to protect your home from further damage.

How much does damp proofing Wakefield cost?
Damp proofing 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 Wakefield 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.
