Rising damp

If a building’s damp proof course has become damaged, or if there is no damp proof course at all, then the building will be susceptible to rising damp. Rising damp is water coming up from the ground, which can cause cosmetic and structural problems to a property. It can also cause health issues for people living in the property so it is important to get it fixed.

Damp proofingSolid Installs has trained technicians who can carry out the most appropriate treatments for your property, professionally and expertly, with the minimum of disruption. The damp proof course is achieved by drilling holes in the wall and injecting a damp proof membrane. We will then replace any damaged plaster and leave the wall looking as good as new.

Bridging damp

Bridging damp refers to the bridging of damp proof courses and is caused when the ground level outside a solid wall is higher than the installed damp proof course. It can also occur when rendering on external walls or internal plastering extends down below the line of the damp proof course, making contact with the ground, which allows water to rise up and makes the damp proof course defective.

Penetrating damp

Penetrating damp normally affects older buildings and is generally caused by issues with the building itself such as cracks in external rendering, problems with defective guttering and drainpipes or roof issues. Any of these types of issues can allow rain water to saturate and penetrate areas of wall.

Penetrating damp can be extremely damaging to a property. The fix will entirely depend on how the water is entering the property. Our friendly and trained team can come and assess the damage and give a comprehensive damp survey to find out potential areas of concern for potential damp.
