Pass and Co. are specialists in the area of rising damp.
Rising Dampness can develop within walls due to the lack of an effective damp proof course or the omission of damp proofing during earlier construction.
In most cases, rising dampness is identified by moisture readings obtained around the base of the walls, however in more severe cases of prolonged dampness, visible damp patches may appear, along with hygroscopic salts on the wall surfaces.
Typically, treatment involves removal of the skirting boards and wall plaster on the walls to be treated.
The wall plaster is removed to approximately one metre or higher, depending on the salts within the masonry and several other factors.
The height of the necessary replastering will be individually specified on your quotation, once our Surveyor has carried out an inspection of your property. Replastering above one metre high is not uncommon.
