Discover the Cause – Cost-Effective Damp Surveys in Great Dunmow, Essex

Increase the value of your home with our damp proofing solutions. As specialists in the industry, our dependable team provide comprehensive damp surveys on your property. Based in Great Dunmow, Essex, and serving clients throughout the area, we take a look at suspected damp walls to find the heart of the problem.

Fighting Damp

Depending on the severity of the situation, our team have a range of solutions for your property. Bricks can be defective and let in a lot of water. Our team provide a waterproof coating that covers the brick, but it also lets air through! This allows the wall to ‘breathe’ yet stops moisture entering the wall. Our team spray this onto your walls twice, with a half-hour gap in between.

The Causes

Penetrating damp is caused by a range of problems. Take a look at the list below for some examples:

  • Broken Pipes
  • Defective Bricks
  • Heavy Rainfall
  • Leaking Gutters
  • Poor Building Maintenance
  • The Age of External Facings (Old Brickwork or Rendering)
