Damp problems affect many properties in the Whitby area, and the causes can be wide ranging and hard to properly diagnose.  We are Soverign approved contractors, and our expertise can help identify and cure many damp problems such as;


•  Rising damp

•  Penetrating damp

•  Hydroscopic salt damage

•  Condensation problems


Understanding the cause of the problem is paramount in choosing the best course of action to cure the underlying problem.  Be sure to choose a contractor with the appropriate knowledge as a wrong diagnosis can lead to work being carried out that doesn't solve the problem, leaving the homeowner out of pocket.

Damp proofing listed buildings

Many properties in the Whitby area are Listed, and careful consideration should be taken when choosing the appropriate course of action when carrying out damp proofing work on these buildings, as some systems are generally not supported when applying for Listed Building Consent from the local authority.


A further option for managing damp problems in older properties is the use of Lime Mortar, rather than more modern systems, and this may be ther preferred method when applying for Listed Building Consent.
