Damp Proofing All Types Of Buildings

While our expertise often benefits older homes, it's not uncommon for newer properties to face rising damp issues, possibly due to their location or construction quality. J Boyer & Son effectively tackles damp in any building, regardless of its age, size, or location.

Over time, various methods have been tried to combat rising damp. We identified early on that a waterproof membrane is crucial for a lasting solution, a standard practice in new construction that's essential for obtaining planning permission.

The challenge was integrating the membrane into existing walls without extensive damage, particularly with solid party walls where traditional methods could compromise adjacent properties. We resolved this by developing a unique saw that cuts through any wall thickness without the need for demolition. This innovative approach has proven effective for over thirty years, ensuring the durability of our damp proofing solutions.

How do I identify signs of damp in my house?

To identify signs of damp in your house, look for musty odours, visible mould, damp patches on walls or ceilings, peeling wallpaper, excessive condensation, and any discolouration or salt deposits on surfaces. These indicators can reveal the presence of damp at your property and necessitate further investigation or intervention. Contact us now for expert help.

What are the risks of ignoring damp in my home?

Ignoring damp in your home can lead to serious issues, including structural damage as moisture weakens building materials, health problems due to mould and mildew growth, reduced energy efficiency with increased heating costs, and a decrease in property value. It's crucial to address damp early to prevent these extensive and costly problems.

How can I treat damp on my walls in my house?

Identify if wall dampness is due to condensation, rising damp, or external causes. Address the root, eradicate mould, and execute repairs. For rising damp, verify your damp-proof course's effectiveness. For comprehensive, expert damp-proof course treatments, consult J Boyer & Son, where specialised, professional assistance awaits.

What is Plastic Membrane Damp Proofing?

Plastic membrane damp proofing is a cutting-edge solution in the building preservation industry, offering a robust barrier against moisture intrusion. This method involves installing a high-density polyethylene sheet that acts as a waterproof layer, preventing water from rising up through the walls due to capillary action. The benefits are numerous: it's a non-invasive installation process compared to traditional methods, offers long-term durability, and provides an effective shield against various forms of damp, including rising damp.
