With over 172 days of rain a year, damp proofing in North Yorkshire is essential. There are numerous ways that water can enter your building and cause damp, some of the most common are:
Without proper damp proofing, water can enter your home and begin to spread through walls via capillary action. This damp in your home can cause wood rot, attract woodworm and cause a whole host of other costly damage.
Rising damp, the most common type of damp in York, is the process of water entering a home by soaking in an upward direction, through brickwork and mortar. Certain building materials are porous, such as brickwork and stonework, which means that they can absorb moisture, which transfers to other nearby building materials via capillary action. Consequently, when rising damp occurs, it can damage large areas of your property.
Penetrating damp occurs when water enters a building by passing horizontally through building materials. It’s most common in basements as the earth surrounding the external walls always holds some degree of moisture. As this moisture can spread throughout your property, it’s important to get this treated immediately.
The key signs of damp are:
Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, can be used retrospectively on properties throughout York. This intelligent damp treatment adds a water-resistant quality to the mortar between your property’s brickwork.
We’re so confident in its damp proofing ability that, 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, prventing 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.
Perfect for all projects, including waterproofing basements, the ALLDAMP damp proofing membrane creates a barrier and cavity between the existing brickwork and wall surface. The membrane can be plastered over and works effectively to prevent future damp penetration.
Both rising and penetrating damp can damage structure’s integrity and, if left untreated, cause extremely costly repairs. Condensation and the mould which forms because of it, can also threaten your health.
Dry and wet rot damage woodwork, floors, and timber in properties, causing floors to collapse if left untreated. They make the building dangerous and can lead to expensive repairs in the future.
If you see any signs of damp, get in touch with a damp proofing expert immediately. The sooner you speak to a damp proofing specialist the sooner you’ll have peace of mind that your building’s structure has not been compromised.
