Rising Damp

Rising damp is water coming up from the ground, which causes cosmetic and structural damage to a property, and in extreme cases, even health issues to residents.



Symptoms of Rising damp include:

  • Tidemarks along the base of the brickwork internally or externally

  • Flaky plaster or stained, peeling wallpaper.

  • A band of salt that’s drawn out of the plaster or rendering

  • Crumbling plaster at low level


Action required:

Removal and re-connection of your radiators, replacement of covings, skirtings and electrical sockets.


​We will implement our own professional skills regarding all plumbing, carpentry and electrics, leaving your rooms ready to decorate.


Even though it is a common problem, rising damp is often mis-diagnosed. If you have any symptoms of rising damp, a thorough investigation should be carried out by a qualified surveyor.


​Our qualified surveyor will give you the best advice available, including a detailed report of his findings, and suggestions for any remedial works required to protect your property.


If remedial works are found to be necessary, then our trained technicians will carry out the most appropriate treatments professionally, expertly, and with the minimum of disruption.


The process includes chemical damp injections (only if absolutely necessary), waterproof rendering and vertical damp proof membrane systems. All our damp treatment works are guaranteed for 20 years.
