Timber Treatment & Damp Proofing Great Yarmouth

Damp can cause structural and health problems in your Great Yarmouth house. Peeling wallpaper and damp stains may disguise a more serious condition that might cost thousands if left untreated.
It’s best to contact a Great Yarmouth damp proofing company like ourselves for an assessment and recommendations.
Three types of dampness that impact Great Yarmouth dwellings: Rising damp, Condensation and Damp Penetration
The following describes some of the causes of many Great Yarmouth damp problems and offers suggestions on preventing or treating it.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating moisture can be caused by defective guttering, loose roof tiles, masonry fractures, and cavity wall issues. Clogged drains, broken shower trays, leaking pipes, and overflowing baths or sinks are among internal reasons. Water seeping into woodwork and walls causes paint to peel or bubble, plaster to blister or crack, and walls to acquire damp dark patches.
A leaking roof that has gone untreated for an extended period of time can develop wet rot in the timbers. Although damp rot does not impact the bricks themselves, the timbers of your roof may become structurally compromised if the condition is serious enough. Damp rot is indicated by a musty odour, “spongy” roof timbers, and a black fungus.
How to fix penetrating damp
Preventative maintenance includes repointing broken brickwork, testing pipes for leaks, and clearing and inspecting guttering and roofing for leaks. When you employ a Great Yarmouth damp proofing company like ourselves, we will evaluate these areas to solve your damp problems.


Condensation Problem

Condensation, a common type of moisture seen in many Great Yarmouth houses and is easily diagnosed. When a cold object is exposed to warm, humid air, surface condensation occurs. In most cases, poor ventilation in damp areas (such as kitchens, boiler rooms, and bathrooms) is to fault.
Condensation Fixes
Wiping away any water droplets that form is one of the simplest things you can do, as is ensuring adequate ventilation in the key problem locations. It’s possible that you may need to upgrade or install brand-new cooking hoods, extractors, and air bricks to properly direct moist air outside of your Great Yarmouth home.
Any reputable Great Yarmouth company can do a full damp proofing survey to discover the issue’s sources, including Aqua Dri. Outside damp air is occasionally drawn inside, exacerbating the situation. Aqua Dri, your Local Great Yarmouth damp proofing professionals can help regulate airflow to reduce condensation.

Rising Dampness

Since 1875, all British homes have been required by law to have a damp proof course. This is most likely not present in structures built prior to this time period. If your home was built after this year and has rising damp, your DPM may be faulty.
White powdery residues on floors or walls, tidal marks on walls, and rotting skirting boards are signs of rising damp. While not definitive, they’re all symptoms of damp issues.
Rising Damp Prevention
Examining the outer walls for a visible damp course may be a simple solution to tackle rising damp problems. For adequate protection, the damp proof course must be 150 mm above the ground. If there isn’t enough area, remove the dirt around it or build a damp-proof barrier higher up.
If your DPM is fine, you may have a more serious problem: damp rising through your floors and walls.


We’re Here to Assist You

As damp proofing experts in Great Yarmouth, we will quickly identify the source of the problem and implement a range of methods to eliminate the increasing damp.
Here are a few of those fixes for damp issues in your house.
An older property without a damp proof membrane or with a damaged one might have Permaguard or Dryzone injected into its outer walls.
The cream is injected with a special nozzle into regularly spaced holes drilled along the mortar course; it cures to form a water-repellent barrier.
If injecting damp proofing cream isn’t possible or the membrane is compromised, a new damp proof course may be needed.
Such fixes may be extreme, but they may be your only alternative to combat rising dampness
Smaller damaged membrane pieces can be covered with a bitumen-based, waterproof latex emulsion. It will be applied under the current flooring, therefore carpets, laminates, and tiles must be removed.
This approach will be used to “tank” basements to make them impermeable. As your Great Yarmouth damp proof expert, we may propose installing building paper (a foil-backed membrane) before the bitumen coating hardens.
Dehumidifiers Can Reduce Humidity
Dehumidifiers are an efficient way to eliminate moisture in the air, which can considerably reduce condensation problems.
The difficulty with dehumidifiers is that they only mask the source of the moisture rather than eradicating it.
If you notice mould or dampness in any portion of your home, you should consult a registered Great Yarmouth damp proofing specialist for the most reliable advice.
Aqua Dri is a Great Yarmouth company that eliminates dampness.
In addition to Great Yarmouth, we also provide damp proofing services to Caister-on-sea, Runham, Burgh Castle, Bradwell, Belton, Gorleston, Brownstone Green, Fritton, and the NR29, NR30, and NR32 postcodes.
