Cellar Damp Proofing

Damp is one of the most frequent problems encountered in the home (cellar damp proofing is the most frequent). There are three major causes of damp, (rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation) which each require a different remedy. Whatever the cause, damp can be bad for health and therefore it is important that you get advice if you think you are affected. We can send out a damp proofer from our skilled team to help you with the problem.

Woodworm Treatment

Woodworm

Woodworm holes found in timber are caused by the larvae of beetles that feed on the timber. Larger holes on the surface of the timber are formed when the adult beetle emerges from the timber to mate.

There are a number of species of woodworm, and the precise method of treatment will depend on which species is attacking the timber.

By far the most common species of woodworm in the UK is the Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum). Other types of woodworm common to the UK include the Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium rufuvillosum), the House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus), and the Powderpost beetle (Lyctus brunneus). Whilst the Powderpost Beetle can be treated in much the same way as the Common Furniture Beetle, House Longhorn and Deathwatch beetle infestations require more extensive treatment

Dry Rot

Typical indications of dry rot include:

Dry Rot

Timber can become damp for a number of reasons. Among the most common causes are leaking washing machines, shower trays, baths, condensation etc.. The dampness can also come from outside the building, for example, leaking roofs, rising dampness, or dampness penetrating through walls. Whatever, the source of the dampness, if it is rectified and the timber allowed to properly dry out, the dry rot will eventually be controlled.

Dry rot can cause widespread structural damage. If you suspect dry rot contact us today for a free survey and we will identify the problem and effectively treat it.

Replastering

High levels of contaminant hygroscopic salts can build up in both the old plaster/underlying masonry over many years of active rising dampness. Even though many of our other the damp-proof courses are effective the hygroscopic nature of the salts may cause moisture to be attracted to the wall so causing further dampness, decorative spoiling, and giving the impression that the damp-proof course has not been successful.

Removal of the old contaminated plasterwork will remove the contamination at the surface but underlying contamination may pass into new works unless it is designed to be resistant to the passage of residual moisture and these contaminant salts.

Our high level of work will always ensure that:
