Damp Proofing in Southampton

Extensions including garage conversions will typically require additional damp proofing to be installed during the conversion, as the existing garage will often have a single skin design for walls and floors, which was not built to comply with building regulations for habitable rooms. This damp proofing should be put into walls and floors. In addition, the roof of the garage conversion will need water proofing. The damp proofing of the floor of the garage conversion will usually be achieved by using a damp proof membrane. This membrane can come in either solid or liquid form. The damp proof membrane will be placed down either on top of the pre-existing concrete floor, underneath the new floor, or as part of both, depending on if the floor will be a solid or a floating floor. In some garages, the walls have been damp proofed, but this might need to be improved as part of the conversion in order to comply with current building regulations. The walls will need to be damp proofed to be able to protect the brickwork from rotting gradually as moisture sets in. This can be done by either using damp proof membranes, waterproof rendering, or cavity insulation, depending on the type of walls that are already in the garage. Damp proofing is an important part of the building regulations that the garage conversion will need to adhere to, and so is it vital to ensure that your garage conversion incorporates suitable damp proofing methods.

Southampton

The key port city of Southampton is positioned on the southern shore inside the county of Hampshire, having a population of 239,700. Even though some Georgian architecture is still around, nearly all was lost during the World War Two bombings, which levelled the city. With a lot of the houses backdating to the 50s and 1960s there's plenty of work on offer for installers to have houses restructured.

FAQs

Why is it important to fix a damp problem?

Damp is a serious problem, particularly if you live in an old property, because it can lead to structural damage. This will cost you big money and could be very dangerous, to yourself and the property. Take damp seriously and get it inspected and resolved as soon as you discover it!

How quickly can I redecorate my walls after damp proofing has been installed?

You should make sure that all signs of damp have gone before you redecorate your walls. If you want to paint your walls with a water-permeable emulsion paint, you can usually do this after 1 or 2 months. For other types of decoration you should wait longer.

How can I tell what type of damp I’ve got?

Signs of rising damp tend to be close to the ground, usually no higher than a metre. It usually works its way up walls in horizontal lines. Penetrating damp usually develops in patches and can often be much higher up. For more advice, speak to a damp proofing professional.

How can I tell if my property has damp?

There are a few visible signs of damp, although it often goes undetected. However, in older or empty properties, this made become detectable through its smell. These include peeling paint and wallpaper, crumbling plaster, mould growth, black spots or spores on walls and ceilings, and rotting skirting boards and flooring.
