The most common
symptoms are, flaking paint, peeling wallpaper, a "musty" odour, and timber
decay. Failure to treat rising damp properly can result in a house that is
unpleasant to live in and difficult to sell. The potential structural damage
that can be caused by rising damp is well documented and clearly its treatment
is paramount in terms of structural integrity. Rising damp can normally be identified by the familiar tidal pattern it
leaves on the wall.
modern technology. Our chemical (Dpc ) Damp proof course is designed to
eliminate rising damp transferring from the ground into the wall structure via capillary action. Concentrated formulation
eliminates the need to introduce large volumes of liquid carrier into the wall.
Tri-Cream contains over 70% active ingredient. Low hazard non-caustic, non-flammable, not injected under pressure. Solvent-free formulation. Spillage, & mess virtually eliminated.
No problems with damp-proofing fluid leaking into neighbouring rooms or properties.
No electric DPC pump required can be used in situations where power is not available.

Wet Rot develops as a result of rain water penetration, such as in the opened mitres of door and window frames, where paint films have broken, where plumbing is faulty or a major leak is occurring. High moisture levels (of 40 - 50%) are necessary for wet rot to develop.
is a wood-destroying fungus that is found in most parts of the world. Although
it affects forest timbers, dry rot is best known for its ability to destroy
timbers in buildings. Dry Rot is prolific and will use the mortar beds to
spread through out the property. Walls and timbers have to be treated with a
dual pesticide fungicide.

Woodworm is the most common cause of insect attack of softwoods in buildings, and is often to be found in structural timbers, roofs, floors and joists. Wood worm is only considered active when small particles of dust are found present.
ProBor wood preservatives are based on water-soluble borate, a timber preservative that has been extensively researched over the last 50 years. The products in the ProBor range are formulated for use against fungal decay (dry rot, wet rot) and wood-boring insects
Borates have the distinct advantage of exhibiting superb penetration into damp timber. Hence they can be used in high-risk areas such as embedded joist ends, lintels, wall plates, etc...
The benefits of using ProBor products are well recognised by architects and those in the building restoration industry. They are often specified on high-profile, prestigious projects where re-treatment is not an option. In many situations, the high performance of ProBor products may allow original timbers to be retained that would otherwise have had to be replaced. This is obviously an advantage when treating historic buildings.
Basement and cellar waterproofing is becoming increasingly more popular. Converting a damp cellar or basement can be less expensive than converting an attic. This is the perfect way of increasing living space and can substantially increase the value of a property.
Waterproofed cellars and basements can be converted into kitchens, bathrooms, wine cellars, living rooms, studies. You are only limited by your imagination.
DPS uses both cementitious water proofing slurries, and plastic dual drain membranes dependant upon the area being treated.
has become more of an issue over recent years it can occur in both old and modern houses however it is more likely to appear in a house that has been modernised.Condensation develops in much the same way as a weather pattern develops where the relative humidity and temperature reach the absolute dew point. All air has some water vapor in it. Water vapor is an invisible gas and the water can only be seen when it condenses. The amount of water vapor air can "hold" varies with temperature, with warmer air having the ability to hold more water vapor. If air cools down sufficiently (to the dew point temperature), it can no longer hold the moisture forcing the water vapor to condense.This will normally appear in a house on an outside wall that is not insulated.It is also common place to appear in bathrooms and kitchens.

DPS treats all problems relating and arising from water ingress. We pride ourselves in finding the root causes of all your water ingress problems.
