Damp Proofing Cardiff

Our damp proofing method works by creating a solid barrier against damp – this prevents damp setting back into the wall in the future for the treated walls. This along with our other damp proofing services ensure that damp doesn’t wreak havoc on your Cardiff property again. 

Rising Damp

Rising damp is a common problem in cardiff. It happens due to homes being built on damp soil. The moisture first rises up through the walls of the property – hence the name ‘rising damp’. As you can imagine this causes the property’s walls to then absorb the moisture like a sponge causing massive issues in your home.

Penetrating Damp

This type of damp usually occurs when vulnerable areas allow moisture through them. ‘vulnerable areas’ include access through roof tiles, clogged guttering, damaged pointing, inadequate damp proofing. All of the above are ways penetrating damp can attack your property in Cardiff.

Condensation

Condensation is a very common moisture problem in Cardiff homes, resulting in moisture gathering in certain areas as well as green and black mould forming on clothing, ceilings, walls, and various other surfaces.

Dry Rot

Rot is caused when moisture combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungus to attack. It can affect all types of properties in Cardiff, traditional or modern, and can grow within the cracks and cavities in the walls feeding off debris and wood behind the plaster.

Woodworm

Woodworm is given to the infestation of by the wooden item by the larvae of many species of beetle. Signs of woodworm usually consist of small holes in the wooden item with live infestations showing powder around the holes. woodworm infestations are increasingly common in Cardiff properties

    I had EBM carry out a lintel replacement and damp proofing. They were brilliant from start to finish. They were clear in their quotation, kept me informed on a start date, turned up on time and got the job done on schedule and took every care in keeping my house clean. I'd highly recommend EBM

    Work is near completion. Chris and the guys have been brilliant - very considerate and hard-working. The job has taken a while due to the consistent rain we have had the last couple of months but Chris has kept in constant communication to update me on when work can continue. Highly recommend.
