Penetrating Damp

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is caused by moisture penetrating through the fabric of a building from an external source.

There could be several reasons for this; through the roof or guttering, through the external walls of the property or from a leak in an adjacent property.

Our Surveyors have the specific qualifications, skills and experience to inspect and rectify damp; they are all Certified Surveyors for Remedial Treatments (CSRT) or Certified Surveyor of Timber & Dampness in buildings (CSTDB)

They can usually identify the problem quickly, recommend a repair strategy and provide you with a quotation to remedy the damp problem; whether the work required is roofing, re- pointing or waterproof coatings.

BAR Preservation can provide a full extensive report with a repair specification and costings to eradicate damp problems.

This includes a range of micro porous coatings which waterproof the external face of the masonry while still allowing the property to ‘breathe’. In the case of basement waterproofing, a cementitious tanking system or cavity drained membrane system may be installed. Please see our basement section.
