Damp Proofing in Manchester

Extensions including garage conversions will typically require extra damp proofing to be added through the conversion, as the existing garage normally has a single skin design for walls and floors, which was not designed to conform to building regulations for habitable rooms. This damp proofing will have to be put into walls and floors. Moreover, the roofing of the garage conversion will require water proofing. The damp proofing of the floor of the garage conversion will in most cases be achieved by by using a damp proof membrane. This membrane will come in either solid or liquid form. The damp proof membrane will be put down either on top of the pre-existing concrete floor, below the new floor, or as part of both, depending on if the floor will be a solid or a floating floor. In a few garages, the walls have been damp proofed, but this may have to be improved as part of the conversion in order to meet current building regulations. The walls should be damp proofed to be able to safeguard the brickwork from rotting gradually as moisture sets in. This can be accomplished by either utilising damp proof membranes, waterproof rendering, or cavity insulation, depending on the type of walls that are already in the garage. Damp proofing is a part of the building regulations that the garage conversion will need to comply with, and so is it necessary to ensure that your garage conversion makes use of appropriate damp proofing methods.
