What is Waterproof Rendering?
Waterproof rendering is one of the most important aspects of damp proofing your home. Often applied in conjunction with damp coursing injections, it seals off water’s access to your home.
Waterproofing additive is added to walls after damp coursing injections are applied to internal walls. After this, a final coat of plaster finishes the process and protects your property from any damp damage.
Make sure you keep an eye out for any signs of damp in our home:
- The appearance of mould or mildew on floors or walls.
- A musty, damp smell.
- dark or discoloured patches on walls or wallpaper.
- excessive water/condensation on windows.
- patches of peeling wallpaper.
What are the early signs of Damp?
Is there a way to stop Damp before it leads to serious damage in your home?
Of course there is! We will go over the most common signs of rising damp in your home, to help you spot damp before it becomes a problem. The most common sign of damp is when a brownish or yellowish line is visible in the lower area of your wall, this will more than likely be above your skirting board.
Damp will normally accumulate near your skirting board as this is where the moisture will evaporate, causing damp or condensation. Along with there being visible signs of damp, there are also signs of damp in the air with there being a damp musty smell which you can’t miss – it will spread from one side of your house to another.
There are multiple signs to show that Damp has penetrated your home and is causing damage that may be irreversible in the future. One of the signs that is most common is damaged wallpaper and plaster at the higher parts of the wall. This is caused by the moisture rising or water leaking through the roof. As a result, this causes the wallpaper to become wet and start falling off like soggy pieces of paper.
