Bedroom damp caused by poor air circulation

Left untreated, damp can be bad for both your health (the mould and spores can aggravate respiratory problems such as asthma) and the health of your property: If any form of damp is left unchecked it can cause a number of potentially serious issues, including damage to decorated surfaces, or timber decay and even wet rot, which can lead to structural deterioration, and may necessitate major repair costs.

Penetrating damp in brickwork can cause major wall instabilities

Whether it’s damp proofing walls to prevent penetrating damp, treating rising damp, or dealing with condensation problems, damp proofing costs needn’t be prohibitive, though selecting the appropriate treatment will depend on the results of the damp survey. More »

Penetrating damp: Once the source of the water ingress has been identified and repaired, treatments such as silicone water repellents, bitumen coatings, or a waterproof membrane can be applied to guard against future damp problems. More »

Brickwork affected by damp can cause serious problems for your home

Rising damp: Specialist creams are injected into the brickwork to form a waterproof barrier at the base of the wall; this will prevent water rising and penetrating into the building. Once the brickwork has dried out, the interior walls are re-plastered with plaster containing a waterproof additive. More »

Damp Proofing in Worcester

Worcester has been particularly unfortunate in the past few years, being in the national spotlight due to the flooding that has hit communities across the region. This is in sharp contrast to the normal associations with Worcester of Porcelain, Oliver Cromwell and Worcestershire sauce.

The presence of the River Severn running through the town is both the reason for the City’s existence and also a constant source of concern. With roots as far back as Neolithic times, the area has been a stronghold for Romans, Anglo Saxons and was even designated as the site of alternative government in WWII should the need to evacuate from London arise.

The bulk of the housing stock these days is post war, particularly in the housing estates to the North East of the city centre although there are still wonderful examples of Tudor, Victorian and Edwardian properties across the City, and properties of this age can be prone to problems with rising damp. We have been helping homes and businesses throughout Worcester and the surrounding areas for over 20 years and have an unrivalled reputation for the eradication of damp in properties.

Damp Proofing in Dudley

With over 300,000 people living in the wider Dudley area it is one of the most populated areas in the UK. Properties in the Dudley area vary considerably but with much of the housing stock post war, particularly 1960’s and 1970’s there are inevitably problems with some of them. Whilst not an area of the country traditionally associated with damp, the sheer volume of housing in this area can mean that many of them will have damp proof courses that could have failed.

With records dating settlement in Dudley back to Anglo Saxon times there are a number of interesting buildings in the area, not least of which is Dudley Castle which was actually mentioned in the Domesday book. Clearly this is one property that was built to last! Other properties in the area however haven’t been so lucky and following the massive slum clearances in the early part of the 20th century, some of the housing that was built to replace the slums is now ageing and needs some property care.

The metropolitan borough of Dudley covers a wide area including Amblecote, Brierley Hill, Coseley, Gornal, Halesowen, Kingswinford, Norton, Sedgley and  Wordsley.

Damp Proofing in Redditch

Redditch is a town in Worcestershire that originally grew through the strength of its needle making, fishing tackle, motorcycle and springs industries. Most of these industries have now declined and in the 1960s Redditch was developed into a new town to handle the overspill of a growing Birmingham economy. This saw the population more than double in the town. Much of the housing in Redditch was built post 1964 and around 25% was built pre 1945. Older properties can be more prone to damp problems and this is where we can help. We are specialists in all aspects of damp proofing and water proofing work so call us now on 0800 0193 022 and speak to one of our team of experts.

Places of interest in Redditch include Bordesley Abbey, Forge Mill Needle Museum, Morton Stanley Park, Arrow Valley Country Park and the Kingfisher Shopping Centre. The proximity of Redditch to the River Arrow can make it susceptible to river and surface water flooding. There have been flooding incidents in 2007 and 2012 and with the effects of climate change and increasingly heavy rainfalls in the UK, it is estimated that 10% of all properties in Worcestershire are at risk of flooding.

If you are in a risk area or need advice about damp proofing in your property then call us now on 0800 0193 022. We can help protect your property against the worst affects of flooding by implementing an effective damp course treatment.

Redditch’s population of around 79,000 live in approximately 32,000 households. Around 23% of these households fall below the ‘Decent Homes Standard’ and it is estimated that 8 to 10% will be suffering from some kind of damp problem.

Damp Proofing in Solihull

A town in the West Midlands of England, Solihull is not far from Birmingham and is the largest town in the borough of the same name. The name Solihull is thought to have derived its parish church being located on a ‘soily’ hill – built on a hill of red marl which turned into sticky mud in wet conditions. Solihull is best known for its historic architecture including surviving examples of timber framed Tudor style houses and shops. These builds were developed long before proper damp proofing measures were put in place for homes, meaning that they are particularly prone to problems with damp.
