There are many causes of Damp within the home and first off, our Damp Proofers in Johannesburg will need to determine the root of the problem to be able to diagnose the most appropriate treatment. 9 times out of 10 Damp is caused by a leaking roof, usually through faulty or damaged waterproofing membrane and this is the best place to start. It’s not uncommon for small leaks or cracks to go unnoticed which over time will cause the build up damp within your roof supports and other timber within the home.

Damp within your home or business can take many different forms. We offer Professional Damp Proofing Johannesburg for the most common issues:

Rising Damp in Johannesburg is commonly caused by poor insulation. If the waterproof plastic lining fails the result is Rising Damp. As experts in Rising Damp services and Damp Rising Solutions, we will actively install chemical or osmotic DPC which is injected into the masonry work to repel water. Alternatively, a new damp membrane can be fitted and will act as a physical barrier to block moisture.

Descending Damp is more than likely caused by faulty waterproofing, leaking gutters, poorly waterproofed balconies, leaking roofs and leaking water pipes. The treatment in this case is fairly straight forward and involves locating the leak and making it water tight again. Damp or rotten timber can either be replaced or treated to avoid any further damage. As an expert waterproofing company, we will provide honest, low cost and effective solutions.

Penetrating Damp is usually found internally and is caused by a leaking water source or down pipe which causes backfill against the walls in your home. After locating the source of the problem, our expert Damp Proofers Johannesburg will repair and seal the plaster on the walls to prevent future damage.
