Solving damp issues whilst summer is still here!

This is the time of year where people look at tackling those house maintenance jobs and improvements before the signs of bad weather approach us. This could be sorting the guttering, carrying out those much needed jobs in the garden or re-doing the driveway but have you thought about solving damp issues whilst summer is still here?

Damp does not stop when the sun is out but it can be far more problematic when the weather turns.  Here at Damp Solutions (preservation) we are experts in damp issues and we are aware how common this is within households across the UK.  Whatever the problem we offer a  no obligation survey, professional advise from one of our experienced surveyors and an honest diagnosis and solution to the problem.

So what can we do for you?

Are you suffering with condensation problems? Condensation is not just a nuisance, if ignored it can cause serious problems to the occupants, the furnishings, the decoration and the very structure of a building. Read more .



Have you noticed signs of Rising Damp? Rising damp occurs when ground water travels upwards, through porous building materials such as brick and mortar, in much the same way as oil travels up the wick of a lamp. Read more.

We also offer that little bit extra!

After a program of damp treatment  or damp proofing it is often necessary to remove sections of contaminated plaster-work and decoration, and replace it with specialist re-plastering. This is particularly important if your damp problems were related to rising damp. At Damp Solutions (preservation) our experts understand damp and can asses which areas of your walls will require re-plastering. Read more.

Most homeowners would like to make more room in their properties and extending is often preferable to moving. Traditionally, homeowners have responded by extending outwards and upwards, however recently, thanks to more advanced and economical waterproofing methods, many property owners are opting for cellar conversions. Here, we explain the benefits and how you can achieve an effective basement or cellar conversion. Read more about DS Cellar Conversions.
