Damp Proofing can help fight symptoms including:

  • Ingress of water

  • Damp staining

  • Salt crystallization

  • Plaster breakdown

  • Decaying timber

Our surveyor will usually advise either a cementitious or high density studded membrane system be installed into your property, meaning damp penetration is either stopped or controlled through channels to prevent damage to your property.
