Damp Proofing

The United Kingdom’s wet climate makes damp a common problem. Unfortunately, damp can cause a significant amount of damage to a property in a short amount of time, rotting timber, causing paint to flake, and damaging wallpaper.

If ignored, damp can eventually cause structural damage to a property. It can also lead to mould spreading throughout a property, which potentially poses a significant health risk.

If you believe you have a problem with damp, contact Undercover Roofing and Building. Our family owned company employs a team of skilled tradesmen who are experts at identifying the causes of damp and implementing thorough damp proofing measures.

Over the years, we have provided damp proofing solutions to hundreds of commercial and residential clients across Essex, London and the surrounding areas. During this time, we have built a reputation for being professional, affordable, and reliable providers of damp proofing. Our successful track record is testament to the capabilities of our qualified tradesmen.

What Causes Damp In Buildings?

There are several potential causes of damp. However, the most common causes are:

Rising Damp

When water from the ground rises up through the bricks and mortar of a building using capillary action. This often occurs after a building’s foundations have been damaged.

Condensation Damp

Usually caused by a combination of excess moisture in the air and poor ventilation.

Penetrating Damp

If rain water is leaking through the roof, walls, or windows, it can get into the building’s inner structure, causing damp. This type of damp is often caused by a defective roof, faulty down pipes, leaking gutters, damaged masonry, or defective window/door seals.

Really grateful we got John & his colleagues to do some work on our house. We initially got them for rendering but we eventually went with cement fibre cladding installation which John suggested, I am so glad we went with it, they did an amazing job, it looks beautiful, our home looks new. . They are professional and polite, just a delight to work with and they happy to work with you to make sure everyone’s happy and satisfied with the end result. We also needed odd jobs outside done to tie everything nicely together. I’m happy to say I’m a satisfied customer.
