PROFESSIONAL MOULD REMOVALWe can remove mould and fungus professionally with Ronseal interior mould remover, Polycell mould killer or Wickes Fungicidal Wash.
POINTING AND RE-POINTINGBroken or missing pointing can add a lot of moisture to your walls causing penetrating damp. We can replace/repair any missing or broken pointing stopping any further ingress of water. We offer flush pointing, weathered pointing or keyed pointing.
EXTERNAL PAINTING WITH ‘STORM’ – WATERPROOF PAINTIt is common to protect the external surface of walls against elements, especially rain water to prevent penetrating damp. Usually, this is done by rendering or pebble-dashing. We can help protecting also bare brick walls by painting them with ‘Storm’ -a clear, waterproof external paint.
CRACKS & RENDER REPAIRSIf your property is rendered, the walls should be protected against rain water providing the render is in a good condition. We can repair cracks and missing rendering professionally using top quality materials.
GUTTERS CLEARING, REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENTThe main purpose of gutters is to keep rain water away from your home’s walls and foundations. This can be achieved when gutters are in a good working condition and clear of mud, leaves and debris. We can make sure this is the case by clearing, repairing or replacing them, as needed.
DRAINS UNBLOCKING/CLEARINGDrains are pipes which carry waste from a single property to the sewer. To do this job, they must be clear, so any waste can flow easily. We can unblock/clear any blocked drains.
DRAINS REPAIRS/REPLACEMENTSometimes drains can be damaged, broken and therefore in need of repair or replacement which we can help with.
CHIMNEY CAPPINGDisused chimneys should be capped to prevent ingress of rain water which can greatly contribute to problems caused by penetrating damp.
ROOF TILES REPAIRS/REPLACEMENTAny broken roof tiles will be adding moisture to the property resulting in penetrating damp. It is necessary to replace or repair such tiles to prevent any further ingress of rain water.
UNDERFLOOR VENTILATION BLOCKING OR GUARDINGUnderfloor air vents are installed to ventilate the underfloor space. They are very useful. However, depending on how they were installed and whether the outside soil level has been raised over the years, they might be placed too low allowing ingress of rain water or splash back. In these cases, they will have to be protected by guards or in some instances blocked.
ROOF, WALLS AND DECKING MOSS REMOVALMoss growth attracts moisture and can have adverse effect on the surfaces on which it grows and therefore should be removed.
FRENCH DRAINFrench drain is a trench filled with gravel or rock or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from your home. French drains are primarily used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating into the building foundations and external walls. French drains are especially advisable when the external ground/soil level is even or higher than the internal floor level.
