There is no “quick fix” way to solve damp proofing. China Town homes with rising damp must be fixed properly. Damp brings with it other problems like hygroscopic salt contamination in the wall plaster or wood rotting fungi which affects the flooring and joinery timbers that are in contact with the damp walls. No damp proofing fix can possibly deal with any of these problems. If you don’t do it properly, why do it at all?
At Tapco HomeDry, our damp proofing approach starts with taking your skirting timbers off and removing the wall plaster from the affected area. We inject a high performance horizontal chemical (cream) damp proof course to the base of the walls and then re-plaster. This is done strictly in accordance with our damp proofing specification. Each of these stages is an important part of the total damp proofing system and should always be carried out by a company that is a member of the Property Care Association.
We are one of London, Surrey and the Home Counties’ premier damp proofing companies. As well as belonging to the Property Care Association, we are members of TrustMark and corporate members of the British Damage Management Association. All of our damp proofing work is covered by our own long term guarantee, and our fully qualified timber and damp surveyors have many years of experience dealing with straightforward and complex damp problems. We’ll assess and advise you about your problem and how we can fix it.
