Rising Damp

Capillary rising damp is caused by a failure or a lack of a damp proof course within a wall. Installation of a chemical damp proof course together with special waterproof plasters is used to counteract this problem.



Low odour, 8-hour re-entry treatments are used to eradicate woodworm. A proper survey is essential as old flight holes are often confused as active woodworm.


Wet and Dry Rot

There are several different forms of wet rot decay, all with slightly different characteristics, and only one dry rot. All fungal decay requires moisture content of timber to be above 20%.


With Dry Rot (Serplua lacrymans) the fungal strands (mycelium) are able to extend beyond the damp timber and can grow through bricks and mortar and affect other areas well away from the initial outbreak. Specialist treatments including fungicide sterilisation of the brickwork will be required.


Air Gap Membranes

Studded plastic membranes provide a physical barrier to control damp penetration of solid walls and can be fitted internally or externally.


The air gap system allows air to circulate behind the membrane having a drying affect on the wall. They can be plastered directly and are guaranteed.


Basement & Cellar Tanking

Areas of wall below ground level will be affected by lateral damp penetration and therefore it is essential a waterproof coating be applied to the internal wall surfaces. This can be achieved by multi-coat waterproof renders or ventilated membrane systems.


Ventilated membrane systems are used where there is as high risk of water ingress into the basement. This allows water to enter the building under controlled conditions, behind the studded membrane into a purpose formed channel, which is drained into a sump and is then pumped out of the building.
