Damp Proofing services across Kent and the Southeast

If you have a property which has signs of damp then you already know how unsightly it can be. But in many instances, damp triggers mould growth which can also affect your respiratory and immune system. Speak to one of our specialists for damp proofing in Kent today.

If the damp is left untreated the issues become much worse, in some cases causing structural damage leading to significant repair costs with builders and surveyors. When left untreated, the unfortunate fact is that the damp invariably becomes more severe and will eventually cause structural damage leading to higher repair costs in the long run. When diagnosed promptly the underlying causes of the damp in your home can be addressed and treated both effectively and cost-effectively.

When you first notice you’ve got a damp problem, that’s the right time to take action and call a damp proofing specialist. TCA Rendering is a time served local damp proofing company specialising in all aspects of damp treatment and remedial repair works.

Rising Damp

When treating rising damp in Kent all work undertaken by our team is carried out in accordance with British Standards BS-6576-1985, entitled, The Installation of a Chemical Damp Proof Course. If required, and the new damp course needs to be injected from inside of the property plaster would be removed from the wall to a minimum height of 1.00 metre from the internal floor and a chemical damp proof course would be installed, if possible and the injection can be carried out externally this makes the job cheaper in terms of its cost to the homeowner as remedial repair works such as replastering will not be required. Wherever possible we inject new courses externally but on the occasion, this is not possible we will explain why to the homeowner.

Brickwork would be treated with an anti-sulphate solution to stabilise the salts ensuring no further salt contamination to the new plaster, after which a lightweight renovating plaster will be applied to the brickwork and then the wall will be skim plaster finished.

Condensation

Sometimes the treatment for condensation in Kent can be as simple as opening a window or turning on an extractor fan when cooking, but for more serious condensation problems professional solutions may be needed. TCA Rendering is passionate about providing good indoor air quality to everyone, which is why we offer a wide and varied range of eco-friendly and innovative ventilation systems, designed to deliver homes with fresh, filtered air.

After completing a free, no obligation survey of your property we will be able to advise on the best course of action to rid your Kent home of condensation, on many occasions we find that simple lifestyle changes are all that is required for treatment, and as such there is no cost to the homeowner, on other occasions with more severe cases professional services are required and quoted for.
