Warrington Team provide Damp Proofing Solution

Our damp proofing specialists from Cheshire were recently called upon to install a damp proofing solution for a project in Warrington. The property, which is in the process of being converted to residential flats, was undergoing major refurbishment when a survey highlighted issues with dampness on the ground floor. Once our specialists had carried out an extensive survey the issue was identified as rising damp with confirmation of this from the instrumental readings from profiling the walls with a moisture meter. The property also had soluble salt contamination and many walls within the property were affected by rising damp as the original damp proof course had clearly failed in places.
