Derbyshire, England -
Watertight Homes Ltd is offering certified property care and preservation specialists in Leeds for all its customers’ damp proofing, basement waterproofing, and timber preservation needs.
Dampproofing is a general term used to describe the methods and tools used to control and eradicate moisture that has built up within walls and floors into the interior of a building or property. There are four main types of dampness that can severely damage homes. These are rising dampness, penetrating dampness, condensation, and underground water ingress.
Rising dampness is usually caused by rising groundwater through capillaries in masonry. This is a well-known problem, especially in older properties. It is also why most new builds are now built with a DPC. However, rising dampness can still occur in these properties mostly due to a faulty or non-existent DPC. In this case, a DPC must be installed to stop the rising damp from occurring.
“Rising damp often gets misdiagnosed for another cause of dampness,” says the spokesperson for Watertight Homes Ltd. “Thankfully, our team is equipped with the tools and technology necessary to thoroughly investigate it until we are certain of the root cause of the dampness. With our experts on your site, we can guarantee that it doesn’t cause any further damage or increase any unnecessary costs.”
Penetrating dampness is caused by water infiltrating the building or property through an external wall. This mainly occurs either due to water entering through a defect in a building or when external bricks or stone walls have degraded over time to the point they have become porous. Once the external bricks have become porous they allow water ingress to pass through the external wall into the property. Penetrating dampness is usually the main cause of dampness in a property.
Damp caused by condensation occurs when moist air in the home comes into contact with cold surfaces such as walls, windows, mirrors, etc. The air can’t control the moisture and water starts to form, leading to this type of dampness to be found in the corners of rooms and inside and behind furniture. Usually, poor ventilation in the property causes this type of dampness as the moisture has nowhere to go.

Not only this, but Mathew is exceptional too as are the two who showed up first thing this morning, did a great job, and left it spotless before giving me a tour of their excellent work. There is more work to be done on the first floor and I wouldn’t hesitate to have Watertight back in to do this. Thank you, Mathew and your team.”
