Finding a damp proof specialist

Damp is more than an unsightly nuisance; in terms of how dangerous it can be for humans, it is classified on the same level as asbestos! In other words, if you have damp in your home, it is important to get it looked at as soon as possible. Excess moisture can come from internal condensation or a structural issue such as a guttering problem, internal leaks or cracks in the wall. Your local damp proof specialist would provide services to either prevent or alleviate these issues, with the aim to keep excess moisture out of the building permanently. Depending on whether you were looking to proof your home or rid it of the damp, the specialist would carry out an assessment to ascertain what the best form of protection/solution is for your home.

Finding a damp proof specialist quickly can be difficult, but Plentific is here to take time and stress out of your search. The Plentific website can quickly generate a contact list of the best damp proof specialists in your local area, each of which will have a website profile displaying their qualifications, work experience and customer reviews. If you hire a 'verified' Pro, you will also gain protection for your project from the Plentific Guarantee, which will cover your job form start to finish. Whatever your job may be, Plentific is ready to help you find your perfect Pro.

What to think about when finding a damp proof specialist?

Before selecting your local damp roof specialist, make sure you know what accreditation they require. You want to ensure you receive a professional service, both in terms of the quality of the output and in their customer service.

The way to validate your local damp proof specialist’s professionalism is to ask for paperwork that confirms their background. The qualifications that you should look for fall under the Property Care Association. This is a trade association that sets very high standards for which its members must adhere to. This code of conduct is stipulated through the development and deliverance of training courses. The standard is upheld by the requirement for all members to retake any failed exams or courses in order to hold onto their qualifications.

While it can be tempting to go on a glowing recommendation from one of your peers that highly rates the local damp roof specialist, this isn’t confirmation of their background and so you must make sure that you obtain the paperwork to certify them. An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.

What does a damp proof specialist do?

A damp proof specialist will first survey the property and be able to assess what proofing you will require. They will be assessing whether you already have a damp issue or if there are any structural weaknesses or impending leaks that may lead to a damp issue. Your local damp proof specialist will then make a recommendation for the best damp proofing methods.

Following this, your local damp proof specialist will arrange a date to carry out the damp proofing service. Dependant upon the thickness of walls, there are holes drilled into the brick/mortar externally and internally. The holes are then injected with a damp proofing liquid. This is made using a water-based silicone and this is used to reduce the movement of water through the capillaries.

Alternatively, a damp proofing rod could be used. This is an operation whereby rods are inserted into the masonry holes without using an injection pump. Using the rods as opposed to a liquid-based solution means that the time taken for the wall to dry is substantially reduced which means the follow-up processes such as plastering can happen more quickly.

Depending on the scale of service your local damp proof specialists offer, they may also plaster your property for you. It’s worth researching what the cost of this integrated service is versus having different local specialists for each trade. The re-plastering service involves using a dense sand and cement render as a backing coat so as to support the waterproof additive in the event that a damp proofing liquid is used.

How much does a damp proof specialist cost?

A damp proof specialist will charge an hourly rate and invoice you with a quotation dictated by how long they think the job will take. This will be entirely dependant upon the current damp state within your home, if it is a prevention or treatment service and whether a rod or liquid-based solution is used.

Use Plentific to compare prices for the best local damp proof specialists in your area. Plentific recommends that you speak to at least three local damp proof specialists to receive quotes in order to find the best professional for your home services.
