Damp Problems?

Blown brickwork, cracked cement render, pebble dash, non breathable spray coat or any wrong system applied to external walls can lead to damp problems. 

When the facesof bricks have blown or basic products begin to breakdown, they allow water to soak into the brickwork or substrate causing there to be too much water retained in the walls of the property.

Damp on internal walls is caused when the water in the external walls prevents the moisture within the home from escaping (this is commonly known as penetrating damp).

This damp then causes the plaster to break down leading to surface cracking and peeling surfaces, these are also ideal conditions for black spot mould and mildew to spore.  If the situation is not rectified, water will continue to penetrate the outer surface and cause dampness inside the property ruining décor, furniture and causing rotting in the fabric of the building itself.

Common household mould has been heavily related to health problems especially in children or susceptible adults in this country.  

Walls can become damp from the foundations upwards if a damp course has been breached or if no damp course exists. The sponge like action of brickwork allows water at the base of a property to travel up to around a metre in height above damp proof level.  This is rising damp.

There are many other causes of damp and condensation within the home, the above is only an outline guide, please call our free advice line or send us an email for more information.

Wethertex™ has a range of systems that will eliminate these problems.
