Tackling basement damp effectively

Whether your property is new or old, it can be affected by below ground damp. Even if your property has an existing damp proofing membrane installed or traditional damp proofing barriers, these can fail. Perhaps they were installed incorrectly, have become damaged, or even bridged due to underground water.

When this happens, you’ll quickly see damp marks on your walls and floors, or might even experience flooding in severe cases. If damp is left untreated, it can lead to serious mould and condensation problems that are a risk to your family’s health.

Why get your basement waterproofed?

It’s crucial to get your basement waterproofed to protect your home. If you store belongings in your basement, they are at risk from damp or flooding without effective waterproofing.

What’s more, once a basement is waterproofed, it extends your usable living space, giving you an additional room that can add value to your property.

Should you notice damp walls in your basement, don’t delay in calling our experts. We’ll carry out a full inspection and diagnostic survey of your basement and assess the problems occurring due to the rising damp.

"We had a timber survey carried out by R.H. Smith. They have been excellent from the start, prompt communication and even managed to schedule us a last minute cancellation appointment as I needed the survey done quickly. The report came through 4 days later as promised. Very honest report and extremely helpful."
