What is Damp Proof Plastering?

Damp-Proof Plastering is a specialist process used on both modern and period properties. It involves the application of layers of special damp-proofing materials to the walls, providing a surface that is less susceptible to damage through damp ingress. There are many different types of damp-proof plaster depending on the use required.

Our Damp Proofing Services

Our company is the most reliable damp proofing service in Brighton. Our damp proofing specialists can identify your problem and advise you on the best course of action to take. If your building’s surface requires replastering, we will also do that for you. This ensures we’re handling everything that needs fixing, so you don’t have to worry about anything! Our top damp proofing services are as follows:

Rising damp treatment

Rising damp is a problem that is often caused by poor building maintenance and poor design. The repair of rising damp requires good craftsmanship and proper access to the damp course, which is often concealed. Those with older properties are particularly at risk of rising damp, but have no fear as Brighton Plastering ServicesX is here to help you stay on top of the problem. We provide rising damp treatment for homeowners, and we do so with over 20 years of expertise in the field, which we guarantee will not be surpassed by our competitors.

Penetrating damp treatment

This type of damp is caused by water entering through a source such as your roof, chimney, or walls and has long-lasting damage that will only get worse. The issue is usually caused by poor drainage, loose mortar, bricks, or stones on the exterior of the house that allows water to seep through. The causes of the water ingress can be quickly spotted and are typically treated with cost-effective treatments. If you notice this kind of damp, it’s important to deal with it quickly. We offer an effective damp treatment using the latest damp proofing methods and products. We are specialist Brighton damp proofers!

We assess woodworm problems efficiently and sympathetically. With all the experience of a fully qualified and professional team, we deliver solutions that work for you.

Dry rot treatment

Dry rot is caused by a fungus that thrives and feeds on moist rotten timber. Damp proofing can save your home from a serious disease that is eating away at your structure. We can cure this disease, and prevent it from spreading. Speak to us about a damp-proofing treatment plan for your building.

Condensation control

Condensation is where moisture gathers on cold surfaces such as windows and walls where rooms aren’t ventilated properly. Condensation in your home or business presents a serious problem and can lead to the growth of moulds and mildew, staining to walls, papered surfaces and paints. We use the latest electrostatic technology to prevent this problem quickly, cleanly and efficiently.

Signs of Damp in a House, When to Use Damp Proof Plaster?

Here are common signs of dampness in a house and when to use damp proof plaster or DPC injections:

A Distinctive Musty Smell

A distinctive musty or mouldy smell, wall dampness, and tissue tests all point to a common problem – rising damp. This is usually caused by moisture rising through the porous walls of an old house. Call a specialist to diagnose the cause of the problem and recommend the best solution.

The Appearance Of Moulds Or Mildew On Walls, Floors Or Ceilings

Moulds or mildew on walls, floors or ceilings is a sure sign that there is dampness in the house. Moulds must be regularly cleaned. Before painting the surface, first, use damp-proof paints, then use the required colour paints, If you are unable to control all possible causes of damp, you should consider calling us to put a damp-proof course (DPC) into the wall.

Walls, Floors Or Ceilings That Feel Cold Or Wet

Walls, floors or ceilings that feel cold or wet may also signal a problem with damp. It is important to know how to identify the problem and treat it. If you have any questions, please contact our customer care team on 01273 257877.

Water Droplets On Walls

Water droplets on walls are obvious signs that there is damp in a home. With rising damp, the water rises up from the ground and into the actual plaster of the building surface. Condensation damp is caused by moisture from inside the home entering an outer wall, condensing and then turning into water droplets.

Dark Or Discoloured Patches On Walls Or Plaster

If you notice dark or discoloured patches on your walls or plaster, it could be due to a mild problem such as damp. This can often cause discoloured patches to appear on walls and ceilings which are quick and easy to spot.

Lifting Or Peeling Wallpaper From Moisture In The Walls

Wallpaper peeling off the wall is a common symptom of a damp problem in a home. It may be a sign that the wallpaper hasn’t been hung properly and that it isn’t sealed to the wall. Or it could be because there is damp within the walls, causing the wallpaper to peel or lift from the moisture in the wall behind it.

Excessive Condensation On Windows, Not Just During The Winter

Condensation on windows is never a good sign because it can indicate that the house has damp. If you see excessive condensation during the winter, it might only be a problem that can be solved by better ventilation, but if this condensation lingers for longer than a few months, you should speak to a professional about having your home inspected for damp. Humidity can also be caused by gutters.

Rotting Woodwork Like Skirting Boards

One of the main clues that you have damp in your home is rotting woodwork. This can take the form of skirting boards, furniture and even floorboards! Damp woodwork can become a serious problem if left untreated, so make sure you monitor your wood for any signs of decay, including warping or discolouring.

Can you plaster on damp walls?

Yes. Ensure surfaces to be plastered are completely dry and free from any imperfections such as flaking paint, loose plaster and mould growth.

How do you treat internal penetrating damp walls?

Internal penetrating damp can cause serious problems to your home if they are not treated. Brighton Plastering ServicesX offers a bespoke waterproofing service where we assess your property and provide tailor-made solutions to ensure any potential of the damp is eradicated.

Why are British homes so damp and mouldy?

Damp can occur anywhere and any place in the world. However, the main reason for the dampness is the lack of insulation in walls, floors and roofs. Warm air (i.e. air with high humidity) contains lots of water vapour. If this warm air strikes an external wall that is cold because it is poorly insulated, the water vapour changes to liquid water as soon as it strikes the cold surface. This moisture appears on the wall’s surface and over time mould spores grow.

What is the difference between rising damp and penetrating damp?

The difference between the two is that rising damp consists of moisture slowly rising from the ground through walls while penetrating damps comes in from external elements such as rain seeping into the brickwork or masonry.
