Fixing the Problem


Penetrating damp is only the symptom of the larger problem of water getting into your property. Once we know where the water is getting in, we can take the appropriate steps to eliminate the problem. This could involve fixing a leaking roofing, unclogged an overflowing gutter, repointing brickwork, or more. Whatever it might be, we have the tools and experience to fix the job for you.

Repairing the Damage


Once we have stopped water from entering your property, we can go about assessing and repairing any damage it may have caused. Depending on how long the damp has been an issue, this could be anything from crumbling plaster and render, through damaged masonry, rusted metal work, and rotten timbers. Whatever the damage might be, we can fix it, though we normally need to wait a few days for the area to dry out before we can begin.

Preventing Future Penetrating Damp


If water has made its way into your property once, there is every chance it could do it again. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the water ingress, there are several steps we can take to prevent it happening again. This include fresh rendering, waterproof paints and sealants, various chemical treatments, and more.
