Causes of Damp

With more than 194 days of rain each year, damp proofing in East Yorkshire is an essential service. There are many ways that moisture can enter the home and cause damp issues, here are some common examples:

  • Properties lacking of a working damp proof course
  • Missing roof tiles
  • High external ground levels
  • Leaking pipes
  • Cracked mortar or brickwork
  • Penetrating damp

Without the right damp proofing, water can make its way into your home and spread through nearby walls via capillary action. Damp in your home may lead to the start of a wood rot issue, cause a woodworm infestation or lead to a of other serious and expensive property repair issues.

Signs of Damp

Rising damp stands out as the prevalent form of dampness in the Hull region. It involves water infiltrating a home in an upward direction, seeping through mortar and brickwork.

Many construction materials, like stonework and brickwork, are porous, allowing them to absorb moisture. This moisture then spreads to other materials through capillary action. Consequently, the occurrence of rising damp has the potential to cause substantial damage to extensive areas of your property.

Penetrating damp, on the other hand, occurs when moisture makes its way horizontally through a building’s structures. This type of dampness is often identified in basements, where the ground surrounding external walls consistently retains some level of moisture, even during dry periods. Given that this water can disseminate throughout your property, it is crucial to promptly address this issue with the assistance of reliable experts.

The key signs of damp are:

  • Mould and black mould spots
  • Flaking or blistered plaster
  • Cracks in a home’s walls
  • Salt deposits visible on your walls

Damp Treatments used by us

Allerton ALL DAMP DPC Gun
CHEMICAL DAMP PROOF COURSE

Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, can be used on properties throughout Hull. This intelligent damp treatment adds a water-repellent value to the mortar between brickwork.

We stand by our products and their damp proofing ability. So much so that, when installed by Allerton, we can guarantee this product for 20 years.

RENDER ADDITIVE

 A specially-formulated additive which acts as a water inhibitor and render plasticiser. When carrying out plastering inside homes, our staff use ALLDAMP Render Additive, turning their plasterwork into a damp proof barrier, preventing future water ingress. 

ALLDAMP Render Additive is used in most of our repair projects. With this system, homeowners can redecorate and furnish with the confidence that damp will not return in future.

DAMP PROOFING MEMBRANE

Perfect for most projects, including waterproofing cellars and basements, the ALLDAMP damp proofing membrane creates a barrier and cavity between the existing brickwork and wall surface. The membrane can be plasterboarded over and works to prevent future damp penetration.

FOUND DAMP?

Damp issues, whether surfacing from rising or penetrating sources, can compromise a home’s structural integrity. If neglected, these problems can result in expensive repairs. Also, condensation and the subsequent mould growth can not only jeopardise your home but also pose health risks to you and your family.

Dry and wet rot is particularly destructive to woodwork, floors, and timber within properties. If left untreated, these types of fungal decay can lead to collapses, making a building unsafe and necessitating costly repairs. It is vital to promptly address these issues.

If you observe any signs of damp, it’s imperative to contact our specialists here at Allerton Damp. The sooner you get in touch with us and our experts, the quicker you regain confidence in the soundness of your home’s structure.

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’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.
