Damp Proofing

At UK Property Preservation, we offer a professional damp proofing service that keeps your property dry and comfortable, while protecting it from water damage.

What causes damp?

Damp affects thousands of properties across the UK each year, and is the result of excessive moisture building up in the walls and air within a home, with no means of escape. Damp can result from condensation in the air, moisture penetrating walls through poor insulation, or rising damp coming up from the foundations.

The cause is usually inadequate maintenance, poor quality building materials or low build quality. Moisture can enter a house through faulty double glazing, draughts in doors, through holes in brickwork or when water builds up underneath the walls.

The results of damp are as familiar as they are depressing:

  • Reduced air quality
  • A musty smell in rooms, which transmits to clothes and carpets
  • Dry rot in ceiling and skirting boards
  • Degradation of roofing timbers
  • Black mould on external walls
  • Damp ‘tide mark’ appearing on walls
  • Flaking plaster and wallpaper
  • Discolouration of paintwork and ceiling tiles
  • Damaged carpets

Damp Proofing Injections

A damp proofing injection secures your home against damage by preventing excess moisture from passing through the walls of your home. As the foam defuses throughout your walls, it reacts with the silica in your brickwork to form a secure, water repellent resin.

Why choose damp proofing?

Damp proofing is the simplest and most cost-effective way to address the symptoms of long-term damp in your home and to prevent further damage.

  • It can be used in any type of wall, including brick, stone and breezeblock.
  • It is free of solvents and flammable materials
  • Can be used in external and internal walls
  • Long-lasting and quick to apply
