Damp2Dry, specialise in basement construction and conversion of your dark damp cellar into a room that is habitable for your needs whether it’s a playroom, gym, storage room or extra living space. All conversion work is carried out by ourselves from us from start to finish and completed to the required building regulations. Tanking a cellar is needed even if you only plan to use the room for storage, as opposed to a living space, you still need it to be properly waterproofed (or tanked) to prevent your belongings from getting damp.


Rising damp can develop for different reasons: a current damp proof course (DPC) could have failed; damp crossing over because of the raising of outside ground or inside floor levels; or in more established structures, the entire absence of a damp proof course. Block, stone and mortar are permeable, allowing ground damp to rise. Where a DPC is missing or insufficient, there are diverse strategies for fitting one. A common procedure is to drill holes into the divider at equal intervals and infuse an infiltrating synthetic into the openings. The compound is absorbed into the mortar bed, where it drys to shape a waterproof obstruction. At Damp2dry we have different responses for issues brought on by many types of damp. External injection is a standard system, or the more advanced way utilising a membrane for over ground damp, utilizing tanking membrane inside for joining walls and troublesome properties i.e. stone-manufactured structures, stables and so forth. 

Penetrating Damp Damp is another typical sort of dampness in structures. Dampness occurs because of water penetrating on a level plane through gaps in the building. Often due to wear and tear on cement in brickwork, spilling gutters and leaking roofs or windows and doors not being fixed precisely. Different types of dampness inside structures can cause Black Mould which is constantly brought on by the absence of good ventilation, causing damp build-up.

Condensation builds up in a normal day to day household, from food preparation, showering or drying of clothing on radiators. The dampness gathers on cooler surfaces. Structures with inadequately protected walls are more inclined to this issue. It regularly causes damp in a property and frequently shows up in the same spots. This is on the basis that it occurs in the "dead air" pockets that collect in both level and vertical corners (i.e. out of circling air designs). A normal family group makes 15 pints of dampness every day.


Reasons for rot are ordinarily because of unnecessary moistness and absence of a decent flow of air, normally found in Subfloor Timbers, we at Damp2dry offer treatments, and timber replacement solutions.
