Damp proofing is a general term that covers methods and treatments used to prevent damp from being absorbed through walls or floors into the interior of a property. The common signs of damp include tidemark on the wall surface, damage to plaster, staining and discoloration, peeling wall paper, decayed timber floors or loose paint. Any property can be subject to damp problems, especially older properties which may have been constructed without any damp-proofing or where the existing damp proof course has failed. Whether its rising damp or penetrating damp, we can identify the issue within your property and offer a reliable service to solve it.
A lack of adequate air ventilation within a property is the leading cause of condensation. Common improvements such as double glazing, increased insulation or draught excluders have the unintended effect of causing this issue as they may seal damp air within a property and thereby allowing condensation problems to fester; creating unhealthy, damp and musty atmospheres.
Another contributing factor is our own human behaviors that add to excessive condensation and moisture in the home. Certain unavoidable daily activities including cooking or showering emits humid air into the atmosphere, which if unable to escape is likely to result in condensation, leading to mould growth.

A common pest within the UK is woodworm. Any property, regardless of age, can be afflicted by these critters which attack decorative as well as structural timbers resulting in extensive repair work to the building in severe cases.
For up to five years woodworm larvae will reside in timbers and wood, consistently chewing through the wood before transforming into their adult state, finally emerging from the wood to begin the cycle again.
