Penetrating damp is caused by moisture penetrating through the fabric of the building from an external source.
There could be several reasons for this; through the roof, 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).
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 then provide all the specialist repairs required to repair buildings with 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.
