Damp Proofing Problem

Rising damp is unhealthy, unsightly and can lead to timber decay and loss of heat. In addition to this it carries with it hygroscopic ground salts such as chlorides and nitrates which can absorb moisture from the atmosphere leading to wall dampness in conditions of high humidity.

The cyclical nature of the crystallisation and rewetting of these salts can break down internal plaster and ruin internal decorations.

What Causes It?

What appears to be rising damp can be due to different factors - the failure of an existing damp proofing course, bridging due to the raising of external ground or internal floor levels or in older buildings the complete absence of a damp proofing course. Wall dampness may also be due to condensation or incorrect re-plastering.

Other factors such as failed rainwater disposal systems have to be taken into account and it requires a trained and qualified specialist surveyor to make an accurate diagnosis.

Damp Proofing - The Solution

Where rising damp is diagnosed, we will install a remedial damp proofing course using their Dry Zone Silane Diffusion system, the very latest in damp proofing technology.

This involves the introduction into the wall of a concentrated thixotropic silane/siloxane ‘cream’ to form a barrier against rising damp. As the cream slowly diffuses, it releases a silane vapour which reacts with the silica in the masonry to form a water repellent resin.

No liquid is involved so the wall is quicker to dry out and it is not injected under pressure which means that there are no problems with party walls.

- Low hazard, non-caustic and solvent free
- Non-flammable and virtually odourless
- Recommended for brick or stone
- Suitable for walls of any type and thickness
- For both internal and external use
- Can be used on 280mm cavity brick walls
- The system carries an Agrement Certificate No 02/3976

It is important to note that the provision of a barrier against rising damp will only prevent further moisture rising from the ground and that all other sources of dampness must be eliminated as well. Our surveyor will advise you on this.

Northern Remedials is a leading basement conversion specialist, helping businesses and home owners alike to take full advantage of the space in their basements by the installation of robust waterproofing systems.

Utilising either cementitiuos renders (often referred to as 'tanking') or the installation of a cavity membrane system we can turn damp, water damaged or flooded basements into dry, usable areas that add value and make great financial sense.

Basement Conversion Methodology

We believe in thorough site investigation and full consultation with clients before the process of designing and installing an appropriate waterproofing solution can begin. With any cellar or basement below ground, there will always be the risk of water penetrating through the walls or floor. A basement refurbishment scheme cannot be considered before first making sure that you have control of both the current moisture within the building and also, the humidity and temperature.

We typically offer two waterproofing solutions dependent upon site conditions. It is not uncommon to combine the two systems for optimum results.

Cavity Membrane Systems

A semi-transparent, studded cavity drainage membrane manufactured from polypropylene which is applied to walls, floors and ceilings by means of special sealed fixing plugs. The membrane is relatively quick to install and can be covered with plaster board or a screed to enable decoration works to be undertaken. A sump and pump is fitted as part of the drainage system.

Cementitious Render Systems

A multi-coat waterproofing system composed of a waterproofing agent and cement-based powder which is mixed with water then applied to walls, floors, and ceilings by spray or trowel. It sets to form a bond with the masonry substrate, creating an impervious barrier to the movement of water.
