S.R. Gill Builders Ltd - The Damp Proofing Experts
Damp is a common problem. It occurs in old buildings as well as new ones and is strictly connected to our daily-life activities such as showering, bathing, cooking, drying clothes and even breathing. Air contains water vapour which then condenses on cold surfaces in your home, for example, windows, walls, furniture etc. Therefore, the likelihood of damp appearing is high.
There are damp proofing solutions that we can offer in order to help you protect your building. Damp sealers, damp tanking or basement tanking can be effective solutions. However, if your damp-related problems are of a different origin, we can help you find out what the problem is and solve it. Sometimes damp originates from different causes such as ground water.
Rising damp can be a big problem that can lead to serious structural damage if it is not resolved early enough. This may then lead to major work being required such as underpinning. We offer a whole range of treatments in order to prevent damp occuring and to treat damp. Some damp 'specialists' blame rising damp as a cause of extensive unrelated issues, but rising damp can rise up to approx 1 metre. Therefore, if the problem is located much higher than 1 metre it is unlikely to be caused by rising damp. At S.R. Gill Builders, based in Northampton, we provide a trustworthy and reliable service so you can be confident that you are receiving the correct treatment for your damp problems.
Whether you live in Northampton, Bedford, Milton Keynes or the surrounding areas, S.R. Gill Builders can identify your problem correctly and find an effective damp proofing solution. Please bear in mind that a damp problem cannot really be solved without changing the plastering in affected areas. The only way to get rid of the damp problem effectively is to remove old plastering, treat the affected area and apply new, clean layers.
This is what makes our company different:
we will solve your problem efficiently and cost effectively.
