Solutions for Damp Walls and Rising Damp
At Mercian Preservation, our surveyors have years of experience in diagnosing the cause of all damp walls and other moisture related issues. Firstly, we identify all problem areas and go about multiple checks to determine the first cause of rising damp. We then test walls for the amount of moisture they are holding and thereafter offer our advice and solutions.
We have solutions to problems caused by rising damp that involve creating a barrier against it using a water repellent resin within the wall itself. This prevents further moisture from rising into the wall from the ground, though other sources of moisture must still be eliminated.
