Damp within your home can take many forms and has many different causes. The first task for our Damp Proofing specialists is to located and determine the root cause of the damp, make a full assessment of the work needed to be done and inform you of the most appropriate treatments. Usually damp is caused by excess water build up, faulty or broken waterproofing membrane or inadequate drainage. A leaking roof, leaking gutter, downpipe or internal pipe will cause moisture build over time and can cause plaster or exterior render to become loose and flaky which are common tell-tale signs of a damp problem. Even the smallest of leaks in your roof can, over time cause a damp issue and can also affect your timber and overall roof structure.

We cover the following services and treatments for Damp Proofing in Cape Town:

Rising Damp in Cape Town is usually caused by inadequate insulation or inadequate drainage. Moisture collects behind the render or plaster in your walls and causes a bubble effect. If gone untreated, rising damp can be harmful to your health as well as affect the value of your property. Installing chemical or osmotic DPC and injecting this into the masonry work will actively repel water and cure the damp problems.

Penetrating Damp – Usually caused by internally leaking pipes, damaged roof structure, damaged waterproofing membrane or blocked drain. After locating the problem, we treat the plaster with a specialist moisture replant before skimming and resealing the walls.

Basement Tanking in Cape Town is a process that can actively allow you to use your basement as a spare room without the issues of damp becoming a problem. As basements are often located below the water table, it’s necessary to construct an inner “tank” so that moisture cannot reach your inner walls and instead is channelled away effectively.

We also conduct Damp Prevention services and will happily inspect your property on a regular basis to ensure no issues arise. The prevention is always better (and cheaper!) than the cure so Contact us today for Expert and Friendly Damp Proofing Cape Town. Call 021 300 1822
