Damp Proofing

Damp Proofing

At Arch Plastering, our speciality lies in addressing and remedying damp issues in both residential and commercial properties. Damp proofing is crucial for preventing water and moisture infiltration, and safeguarding interior spaces from damage. As an experienced local damp-proofing company we excel in damp-proofing basements, walls, and cellars across a wide variety of homes and buildings.

Our team will conduct a thorough damp survey to pinpoint the issue and recommend the best solution.

Our typical approach may involve:

  • Removing the plaster from the walls down to the brick on the ground floor where dampness is present.
  • Allow the exposed area to dry thoroughly.
  • Apply a damp-proofing tanking solution to the wall.
  • Apply a scratch coat using a mixture of sand, cement, and waterproofing agents.
  • Apply a top coat of sand and cement.
  • Smooth the surface using a flat float for a flat finish.
  • Skim over the top layer to prepare it for painting.

No matter the cause or extent of the damp problem, it’s crucial to address it promptly to avoid further damage to your property or health concerns for your family. Our damp experts will diagnose and resolve your damp issues with minimal disruption and maximum effectiveness, ensuring a damp-free living environment.
