Damp Proofing Methods:
Types of Structural dampness: The chemical damp proof course ( DPC ) has for a long time now, been seen as the cure for most if not all damp problems.
At Maclennan-LSE we specify and implement a wide range of methods on all types of building structures. Many of which are traditionally built structures such as cob and stone or flint and brick. For these types of buildings a chemical damp proof course is unsuitable.
The presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of buildings, refers to the intrusion either water intrusion as the result of rain penetration (also known as "penetrating damp") from outside, through roofs, walls, or other openings (e.g. window reveals), or which is formed from water vapour within the building.
is a common problem, it is identified in the lower sections of walls as a slow movement of water which moves upwards, typically to a height of about 1.5m.
At Maclennan-LSE our surveyors will identify the source of moisture in the fabric on the structure, and discuss the long term affects of the moisture ingress, and then propose the most suitable course of action for the property and its occupants. We are able to affect a cure for all of your damp proofing needs. Our is one such damp proofing methods that may be recommended.
