Damp Proofing services in Leeds – DPR Roofing
Damp Proofing is another of the many services that DPR Roofing provides for homes in and around Leeds.
The most common form of dampness likely to be encountered in buildings in the Leeds area is rising damp, with older buildings being at particular risk.
Rising damp, or capillary dampness, is defined as the vertical passage of ground moisture as it moves up through the pores of a permeable wall structure.
The height to which the moisture can rise will vary depending on a number of factors such as pore structure and the rate of evaporation.
At DPR Roofing in Leeds, we offer a range of damp proofing solutions.
However, before we do any work, we make sure that damp proofing is absolutely necessary as a misdiagnosis – especially from a surveyor - can result in a new damp proof course being installed where one is not required, leading to unnecessary upheaval and expense.
Prior to work commencing, DPR Roofing's fully qualified Leeds damp proofing specialists will embark on a survey that will diagnose the cause of any damp problems and then recommend the appropriate treatments.
If the problem is a broken roof tile, DPR Roofing can fix that for you.
Equally, if there is no problem then DPR Roofing will be totally up front and tell you.
However, if you do require damp proofing we will use a range of modern damp proofing materials and techniques to cure your rising damp problem.
These include injecting a BBA approved DPC system along the affected walls in order to achieve a 'dry' wall and a suitable surface to take new decorations.
During this process wall coverings, plasterwork and decorations will be removed and masonry and brickwork will be exposed before DPR Roofing's specialist re-plastering technique is applied to stop any residual moisture and contaminant salts from passing to the new surfaces.
If there are other forms of dampness – including condensation, lateral and penetrating damp – DPR Roofing can also diagnose those and perform the necessary actions to treat them.
All of DPR Roofing's damp proofing work in Leeds is carried out in line with the highest quality standards and is covered by comprehensive guarantees.
