If your home shows signs of damp, you already know how unsightly the problem can be. But damp frequently gives rise to mould, which in turn can affect your respiratory and immune systems. And if left untreated, damp always becomes more severe, eventually causing damage to the structure of your property and lowering its value.
A lot can be done to deal with damp. With prompt diagnosis and treatment, the underlying causes can be addressed and structural damage repaired. When you first notice you’ve got a damp problem, that’s the right time to take action and call a damp proofing specialist.
Causes of Damp in Stockport
The top three causes of damp are:
· Penetrating damp
· Rising damp
Environmental & Structural Factors
Damp is the result of environmental and structural factors. Houses built on a flood plain, such as those in much of Stockport, need effective damp coursing or basement tanking, since their lower floors often extend below the water table. Victorian properties, like the ones found in desirable areas of Stockport, like Bramhall, Davenport, Hazel Grove, ect were built to different standards than today’s and are vulnerable to penetrating and rising damp. In many cases, insensitive modification has added condensation issues, too.
Britain’s weather patterns are clearly changing, with hotter summers and wetter, wilder winters. Floods and torrential rains are becoming commonplace, so if your home predates the 21st century you probably need to revise your damp proofing. Stockport Damp Proofing specialises in conservation damp proofing, and we will always recommend a treatment plan, which respects your property’s heritage.
