Penetrating Damp Proofing in Yorkshire & The Pennines
Do you need professional help in recognising the cause of worn out building walls? At Curedamp Ltd, our team of professionals can help identify and successfully resolve all types of problems with damp across Barnsley, Sheffield, Huddersfield and Leeds.
What is Penetrating Damp?
Penetrating damp is usually caused by the following: Porous Walls — Aging bricks lose the ability to keep out rain penetration. Spalled Bricks & Degraded Mortar — Damage to brickwork allows water to penetrate. Building Defects — Defective guttering and downpipes, roof damage, dilapidated or poorly installed windows.
If your home has a basement or cellar or there is a slope running adjacent, the water that seeps in from the higher levels, can cause damage. We offer a detailed assessment of your property and will recommend any specific treatment required. Whether the dampness is due to a construction defect in the building or damage caused due to a vast change in the weather, we can help.
