We treat rising damp and timber to the highest possible standard in domestic and commercial properties using systems such as Dryzone damp proofing cream

as well as mould remediation treatments.

Watch a video of Dryzone injection here.

This video also explains what rising damp is and how it is treated by installing a chemically injected damp proof course and replastering. There are two other sources of damp - penetrating damp resulting from a rainwater or plumbing leak and condensation through insufficient ventilation of the property.

We are an approved contractor for Triton Systems Ltd/ Wykamol, who are a Property Care Association member, we also supply complete surveys and reports for all mortgage lenders and home buyers.


During winter months, condensation problems created by high humidity are best solved by improving ventilation and insulation. On solid walls where cavity wall insulation is not possible, the walls can be lined internally with Ultrotherm panels which are then plastered. This creates a warmer surface internally to eliminate cold spots where condensation is likely to form.
