Rising Damp is a form of damp that can cause dampness within walls. 

It occurs when moisture from the ground travels up through the walls by capillary action.

Which can cause spoiling to wall finishes and affect surrounding timbers.


Structural Waterproofing is the process of protecting below ground/basement structures from the ingress of ground water into the structure. 

There are 3 types of structural waterproofing: Type A, Type B & Type C.


Timbers within a property can become infested by wood boring insects.

This can become infected with Wet Rot/Dry Rot when exposed to dampness.

 There are a number of different varieties and types of each. 


Condensation occurs as a result of moisture in the atmosphere settling on cold surfaces. 

This often presents as mould growth on wall surfaces and furniture.

 Condensation can be controlled through sufficient ventilation, heating and insulation.
