The inclusion of a ground level damp proof course is a regulation in all new properties. This can be constructed from bitumen membrane, slate or engineering bricks, materials that will effectively prevent damp taking hold in the property walls. This is a tried and tested solution to an insidious and unpleasant problem, but you should be aware that these materials can deteriorate over time, leaving your property susceptible to rising damp.
If you begin to notice any signs of damp – issues like decay to wallpaper, paintwork, skirting, plaster or timber floorboards – then it may be time to get existing damp proofing checked. Taking action now can save you a lot of time, money and heartache in the long run, and with 30 years experience helping householders as well as large organisations, you can trust All-Cure to give you the support and assistance you need to keep your home safe, healthy and in great condition.
A quick survey report can cost as little as £15 and we will quote only for work that is required – so if you feel that your existing damp course could benefit from a health check, get in touch with us today. You may just stop a potential damp problem taking hold.
