Rising damp

Rising damp can cause further problems to your property if left untreated. It can effect the interior and exterior walls within your home and is normally caused either by the absence of damp proofing or the breakdown of current damp proofing course. Rising damp may also appear due to bad re-plastering and where the ground level outside is higher than the wall.

We can install a damp proofing course that will eradicate the problem while also cleaning up the existing damage.
