Damp Problems

Damp is really serious problem that can lead to expensive structural problems such as your timber decaying and causes your home to become much more prone to heat loss.

Also, it is really unsightly and can cause damage to your wallpaper and other decorative features. On top of the damage caused by the damp itself, the damp carries with it hygroscopic salts which seep into your plaster and lead to your walls becoming damp due to humidity even when the conditions outside are dry.

These salts exacerbate the existing problem caused by the damp and by a process of crystallisation and rehydration these salts caused damage to the internal plasterwork leading to long-term problems that are often much, much more expensive than getting the damp treated quickly.

How Is Damp Caused?

Damp is caused by many factors and what may at first appear to be rising damp could be down to many different reasons such as no damp course existing in the first place, condensation, incorrect plasterwork used by a previous contractor, the failure of your existing damp proof course and bridging caused by a change in the heights of ground or internal floors.

Another cause of what is apparently rising damp can also be down to the drainage system on the outside of the property allowing water to flow directly onto the brickwork or render.

Due to the large number of causes of damp, it is almost impossible to know the cause without a fully trained and qualified surveyor conducting a comprehensive and accurate survey. RTC’s surveyors are highly trained with a huge amount of experience and qualifications.
