Property Damp Problems
Damp on walls internally looks unsightly and can cause damage to wallpaper, decorative features and plasterwork. Hygroscopic salts are present in rising damp and this can seep into plaster, leading to walls becoming damp due to humidity, even when conditions outside are dry.
We all know damp can be a serious problem, especially if left untreated. The moisture will eventually cause extensive structural problems such as timber decay, not to mention heat loss. It is much better to fix the problem as soon as possible rather than leave it too late, which could eventually lead to very costly damp proofing repairs.
What Causes Damp?
There are many factors to take into consideration when investigating a properties damp problem. There could be no damp proof course present or failure of the existing damp proof course, penetrating damp from external defects, condensation, incorrect plasterwork, and bridging caused by a change in heights of ground or internal floors, to name just a few.
Damp can also be caused by the buildings external guttering and rain water system. If there are any leaks, water will flow directly into brick and render, causing unprecedented damp problems if not fixed.
Due to the sheer multitude causes of damp, it is almost impossible to know the cause without a comprehensive and accurate survey. Here at RTC our surveys are thorough and will find the exact cause of the damp problem – we will then advise on the repair work needed to eradicate and fix all damp issues.
