Damp is a common problem, that properties across the UK will suffer from at some stage. If untreated, damp can be extremely damaging to the structure and fabric of your home.

If you are unsure what causes structural dampness, it is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building. Dampness is caused by either the result of penetration from outside or damp created within the property. There are several terms which cover damp:

    • Rising Damp
    • Penetrating Damp
    • Condensation
    • Plumbing Leaks
    • External Flooding
    • Below Ground Damp

There are several ways property damp can be caused, this includes condensation, penetration through the property from outside, and rising damp. If you are not sure whether you have damp in your home or not? Here are some symptoms that may arise:

  • Dampness and unwanted moisture, in some cases, causes the production of fungi in wood. This type of damage causes rot and mould. The worst cases of damp can lead to sick building syndrome.
  • Damp can cause plaster and paint to deteriorate. If the walls in a damp area are wallpapered, you may see the paper begin to loosen.
  • Damp can cause stains to form. These water stains come from the drying out of the fabric or staining from contaminates in the structure.

A high proportion of damp problems in buildings is caused by penetrating damp and rising damp. In most cases, dampness is caused by defects or damage to a building like defective roof coverings, render or rainwater gutters and downpipes.

At Richardson and Starling, we use a wide range of instruments and techniques in conjunction with our experience to investigate and identify the presence of excessive moisture in buildings. It is important that a professional surveyor assesses your property to determine what is causing the damp.

Damp can cause problems to the building and its inhabitants; therefore, this role requires competence and experience from the person undertaking the damp investigation. At Richardson and Starling our damp specialists are fully trained and use professional equipment to diagnose the type of damp.

It is important that the type of damp is correctly diagnosed as this will determine the appropriate specification to resolve the damp problem. Rising damp is often mistaken for other forms of damp, which means the wrong treatment is applied. By using one of our experienced surveyors, they will identify the damp issues and give a report and specification to deal with the problem.
