Rising damp is particularly prevalent in older houses that may not have a damp course or whose previous damp treatments have been breached or failed. The consequences of this can lead to salting in the walls that can absorb moisture from the atmosphere, thus keeping the walls damp. Rising damp will turn steel to rust and allow fungi to attack wood, compromising the structural integrity of the building.
Condensation can arise from a number of sources, most commonly from the contact of warm, humid air with cold surfaces, including walls and window frames. Condensation can also arise from additional humidity in the air due to showers, cooking vapours and washing/drying clothes. Un-treated condensation can lead to the growth of mould which can be detrimental to health. In suitable conditions, mould can grow very quickly.
Wet Rot can be caused where there is a moisture content of greater than 20%. It is most important to identify and fix the cause of the damp. An example would be a sub-floor pipe leak. Wet Rot can also occur where floor joist ends or wall plates are in contact with damp walls. Two of the most common fungi are: Cellar Fungus (Coniophora puteana) and Mine Fungus (Fibroporia vaillantii).
Dry Rot is actually a form of wood-destroying fungus - Serpula Lacrymans. The mycelium occurs on the surface of infected timber which, in still humid conditions, appears as a white, cotton-wool like growth. Bright lemon-yellow patches may also be seen in less humid situations. Dry rot can appear where timber has a moisture content of greater than 20%. Possible causes can be a plumbing or drainage leak either immediately in the area, or water ingress from the exterior.
The term "woodworm" is commonly used to describe a number of wood-boring insect larvae. The parent insects lay their eggs in timber and the larvae which develop bore their way through the timber.
Re-inforcing stainless steel rod system. We are able to stitch wall cracks, regaining the strength of the wall structure. Tensile strength - more than double required by BS5628.
Essentially, skimming is a top-coat of plaster which is used to cover-up superficial blemishes and restore the surface of a wall or ceiling to a smooth and level finish. Typically this is used when old wallpaper has been removed causing surface damage, or where there are minor scuffs and abrasions. In the photos below you can see pictures showing some examples of our skimming projects on a previously Artexed walls and ceilings, adhesive covered walls and in making good damaged walls. We also fit coving in readiness for the decorators. As you can tell the finished plastered surfaces look excellent.
We specialise in through colour monocouche rendering and external wall insulation systems. We do this using Weber, K Rend and Parex products. Our one coat rendering has both a decorative and architectural finish. This is applied to the exterior or interior of building facade structures, providing both decoration and weather protection. Whether it’s a commercial or residential property, a new build or a refurbishment, we have a solution and a system suited to your needs!
