What’s the Best Way to Stop Damp?

For the general builder or handyman, the accepted method of stopping damp is to remove skirting boards, radiators, pull out wiring and pipework then apply water-proof render to the internal surface of the affected walls. In most cases, once the work is finished the damp continues to rise and the render will fail. As with any serious affliction, you cannot just cover up damp by attempting costly internal works to conceal the problem.

In truth, most builders or experienced handymen don't have the required skill and knowledge that's required to permanently fix damp. Damp proofing is a specialised trade and unfortunately it's infamous for having its fair share of cowboys. When your damp proof course fails, the results are unsightly, unhealthy and a portent that your property is in a process of slow structural decline and deterioration. At this stage, you have to rectify the damp 'at source' and have a new chemical injection damp proof course installed. That's where we come in.
