Here in the UK, damp proofing is one of the highest priorities within your home. Due to our climate and the amount of rain we get, removing damp and preventing moisture from entering your property should be an important consideration.
Whether you are building a new home, replacing a roof or having repairs carried out, it’s important to have a trusted contractor carry out these works to ensure effective damp proofing and peace of mind.
What Is Damp Proofing?
Damp proofing covers a wide array of building practises and services. As building experts, Reese brothers provide the following as part of their package, to prevent and remove all moisture in your home.
Why Does Damp Occur?
The UK is a damp country. There’s no escaping it, and although its great for the plants and our iconic rolling, green hills, it’s not so great for our properties. Combined with a large number of old buildings, our country is fighting a constant battle with damp issues.
There are several causes for damp occurring and poor building quality from previous contractors is one of them. That’s why it’s so important to trust your builders for reliable damp proofing works.
Sometimes, whether it’s through age or damage, moisture can gain entry through windows, doors, roofs or even walls. This is unavoidable, but there are a few preventative measures you can take to either help dissipate or mitigate damp entirely.
Preventative Damp Proofing
If you’re building a new home or replacing a roof, using a trustworthy contractor such as Rees Bros is a priority. Experience in damp proofing and high quality building services will ensure your walls and roofs have appropriate DPM’s and lead flashing. Not only this, but they can also offer advice on ventilation systems and quality of life improvements you can make to ensure damp never enters or sticks around.
Damp sometimes cannot be removed from a home without comprehensive building works. Replacement roofs and even walls can be costly, so you may want to apply more accessible and cost-effective solutions to prevent damp.
This can be achieved through exhaust systems in high humidity rooms such as the bathroom, and avoiding using some appliances inside.
