How Does Damp Affect my Home?

Damp causes a huge range of problems both to properties and the people who occupy them. The longer you have a damp problem, the more widespread the issues become and the more you’ll notice the detrimental effects. Having damp walls reduces their ability to effectively insulate, meaning you spend more energy (and money!) heating your home – often with very little effect.

Damp also spreads into woodwork and plaster. You might notice crumbling or cracked plasterwork, leading to the deterioration of the structure of your wall, as well as the decor. When damp takes hold, all surrounding material absorbs the moisture, including floors and timber beams. If this is left, you can develop wet rot.

Damp homes are the perfect place for fungal microbes to develop, leading to mould on your walls, ceilings or in your cupboards. Mould, particularly black mould, can seriously damage health – particularly with children, adolescents or elderly people. It can lead to the development of asthma or other respiratory problems. Living in damp and mouldy conditions can also increase your likelihood of developing other illnesses.

Varieties of Damp

Rising Damp

Rising damp describes moisture which makes its way into a building’s walls from the ground beneath the property. It begins in the lower wall and is drawn up by capillary action. It is absorbed by the brick and plaster on the wall’s internal surface, spreading throughout the wall.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is caused when moisture is absorbed into the walls from the surrounding area, not simply from the ground below. This is most common in basements and cellars as the room is surrounded by damp earth, but can also occur in above-ground walls.

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 Wetherby. This intelligent damp treatment can be applied retrospectively and adds a water-resistant layer between your building’s brickwork.

When installed by Allerton we 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

How much does damp proofing Wetherby cost?

There is no ‘one price fits all’ with damp proofing because every job changes according to the unique needs of each property. The extent of the damage and the size of your house affect the price. It’s vital to have an expert survey your property so you can receive an accurate quote. Allerton Damp always give you as comprehensive a quote as possible before undertaking work so that there are never hidden costs.

How long does damp proofing Wetherby take?

Damp proofing work varies on the size of the project so the time will depend on a lot of factors. A small project can take as little as 2-5 days as a rough guideline. A wall also requires further drying time once work is completed to ensure that the damp proofing job is as effective as it can be. When one of our experts surveys your property, they’ll provide an approximate time frame.
