Professional Rising Damp Solutions

Rising damp is a serious issue that affects the lower sections of walls due to moisture from the ground moving up through the masonry. This can cause damage to plaster, paint, and wallpaper, as well as compromise the structural integrity of your walls. Our rising damp repair services involve identifying the source of moisture, treating the affected areas, and implementing preventative measures to ensure long-lasting results. Addressing rising damp promptly is essential to protect your property from further damage and maintain a healthy indoor environment.

Rising Damp Repair Services

Timeless Restorations provides various solutions to treat rising damp that cater to clients’ specific property requirements and budgets. One such method is damp coursing, which involves injecting a damp-proofing silicone solution into drilled holes in the wall. This creates a barrier against water or salts and helps to prevent rising damp.

In addition to this, we provide comprehensive waterproofing services depending on the type and extent of water damage your property has suffered. This can involve inserting a waterproof membrane into a trench dug along the outside wall of a building and in severe cases, replacing a penetrated section of the masonry wall with new masonry.

We also specialise in advanced repair methods such as the replacement of the original damp-proof course.

Rising Damp Repair Process

At Timeless Restorations, we understand the challenges and risks associated with rising damp, especially in the Perth climate. Our comprehensive approach to tackling rising damp involves several key steps, ensuring our clients’ long-lasting protection and peace of mind.

Initial Inspection and Assessment

Our team thoroughly inspects your property to identify the extent and source of the rising damp. This includes checking for visual signs, measuring moisture levels in walls, and assessing the condition of damp-proofing courses. We provide a detailed report outlining our findings, including the severity of the damp and the areas most affected.

Planning

Based on the assessment, we develop a customised treatment plan that addresses the specific needs of your property. We select the most effective materials and methods for your situation, whether installing new damp-proof courses, using chemical injections, or implementing other advanced techniques.

Client Testimonials

We're super proud to be so highly rated by our customers.

  • Polly Robinson

    Had some rising damp issues and lintel replacements carried out by Nick, Ash and their team. From the quote through to the job being completed our expectations were far exceeded. Will be getting them back in the future to tuck point.

  • Hana Woolerson

    Very happy to have found Nikolai and Ashley to repair an internal damp wall. They were both very professional and knowledgeable.

  • Chris Herrmann

    These guys are a cut way above the rest (pardon the pun). But that’s the key point, in the case of rising damp, rather than a patch up fix method, they cut right to the source of the problem and remedy the cause. Quick, efficient and impressive. On top of that, a couple of professional, knowledgeable and genuine guys to deal with. Highly recommend.

  • How quickly should Rising Damp be treated?

    It’s crucial to address rising damp as soon as the first signs, such as damp patches or peeling wallpaper, are noticed. Ideally, a professional assessment should be sought within a week, followed by prompt treatment initiation within a couple of weeks. This swift action is particularly important considering Perth’s climate, with its dry summers and wet winters, which can exacerbate the issue. Immediate treatment not only prevents further structural and health-related damages but is also more cost-effective in the long run.

  • What are the long term effects of untreated rising damp?

    If left untreated, rising damp can lead to serious long-term effects, including structural damage to bricks, mortar, and interior finishes like plaster and paint, leading to costly repairs. It encourages mould and mildew growth, posing significant health risks such as respiratory problems and allergies.

    Additionally, affected buildings suffer from reduced thermal efficiency, increasing heating costs, and often develop persistent musty odours. These issues not only compromise the living conditions but also reduce the property’s value and appeal.

  • Are there any Perth-specific considerations for treating Rising Damp?

    The city’s mix of modern and older buildings, each with varying susceptibility to dampness, calls for tailored treatment approaches, especially for heritage properties without damp-proof courses. Local soil composition also impacts moisture movement, necessitating region-specific solutions.

    Adherence to local building regulations and environmental standards in Western Australia is crucial. Incorporating preventive measures like improved drainage and ventilation, considering the environmental impact of treatments, and choosing the optimal season for intervention are key factors in effectively managing rising damp in Perth.
