“Do I have rising damp?”

Rising damp is a condition caused by ground moisture rising up masonry by capillary action. It often occurs where there is no existing damp-proof course (DPC) or where the DPC has been damaged or bridged. Find out more here

The treatment for rising damp typically involves installing a new chemical DPC and removing and reinstatement of contaminated plaster.

If you are unsure whether your property is affected by rising damp, contact ourselves and we can assess the situation and recommend the appropriate course of action. Rising damp is not as common as people may think and, quite often, damp symptoms are the result of another defect. Proper diagnosis can save the expense and upheaval of incorrectly specified remedial works.
