Damp Proofing in Liverpool
All Work Guaranteed For 20 Years
As well as our other services we specialise in damp proofing for properties in the Liverpool and Merseyside area.
Damp problems are usually caused by one of the following:
Condensation can be caused by poor insulation, poor ventilation and even overcrowded accommodation.
Is usually caused by water rising above the original Damp Proof Course (DPC).
This can often be as a result of the outside floor level being raised with things like flower beds or flagged areas or by the internal floor level being lowered.
This is where water is coming through the walls from above the DPC.
A faulty roof where an extension joins the main building, damaged brickwork or broken rainwater pipes could all be responsible.
All of the above require professional treatment and Barrier have
the skills and expert knowledge to eliminate these problems.
The first phase of our remedial work is to identify what is causing the problem.
Condensation is usually obvious, and a visual inspection will identify the areas of concern.
Rising Damp usually affects the building up to about 1 metre from ground level or DPC level.
Water Ingress in most cases will affect the upper parts of a building.
Penetrating Damp in most cases will be entering the house from above 1 metre high. The is often the result of bad roofing work or weathered roofing that is need of renewal, poor gutters, chimney stacks, flashings or pointing that is in need of repair and maintenance.
The second phase is to eliminate the problem.
This phase usually involves one or more of the following procedures:
Removing old damp plaster.
Drilling into brickwork and injecting solutions.
Installing ventilation bricks in external walls.
Pointing the external brickwork and/or chimney stacks.
Applying the appropriate damp proofing products to create water repellent barriers.
Our staff are highly skilled with many years experience and we always use the best quality products.
