How we remove damp

As a part of our rising damp remedy, we’ll cut back the plaster up to one metre or higher, drill and then inject a chemical damp proof course. Once done, we’ll re-plaster your wall so that it looks as good as new. We will check the corners of the rooms and if necessary include a vertical chemical damp proof course.

This comprehensive treatment ensures that the damp is tackled at the source, and won’t reoccur months or years down the line. Our team includes skilled plasterers who will make sure we leave your walls just as we found them after administering the damp proof course.

"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."
