Damp Proofing by Shaws

Why does damp occur?

Known as Shaws Damp Proofing Co. We have been surveying and carrying out damp treatments for over 25 years all work is guaranteed and we have no fails to date.

Dampness is a great concern to property owners and for good reason as it can cause long-term and expensive damage. It can, however, be treated at an affordable cost and can save you a big repair bill should you decide to leave the problem. Prevention really is better than the cure, and a whole lot cheaper.

Rising damp can occur for various reasons –

  • the failure of an existing damp proof course
  • bridging due to the raising of external ground or internal floor levels
  • Or in older buildings, the complete absence of a damp proof course.

Brick, stone and mortar are porous allowing damp from the ground to rise by capillary action, carrying with it ground salts including chlorides and nitrates. These salts from the ground can absorb moisture from the atmosphere leading to wall dampness in conditions of high relative humidity. Also they can ruin decorations and break down internal plaster.
