We specialise in the cellars, basement conversions, creation and waterproofing of structures below ground. It is not always necessary to have an existing basement as these can often be constructed below an existing timber floor with very little upheaval.
Dampco in most cases uses a cavity drain sealed system that conforms to British Standard 8102 – Waterproofing Structures Below Ground. This system offers many advantages over conventional tanking as it is unaffected by vibration and can equally be installed on vaulted ceilings, walls and floors.
As this system allows water penetration and diverts or pumps it to an external drain the water will not affect another part of the building that was previously dry.
This is a problem that generally affects older properties, either through the failure of the existing damp proof course or simply because the structure predates its inclusion.
We have over 50 years of experience in dealing with this problem and when damp proofing, we use the very latest Gell products injected into the mortar joints which are virtually odourless and environmentally friendly.
We employ trained surveyors to accurately assess the problem and provide a detailed report with associated costs. The work is carried out using our own specialist staff followed by our plasterers and carpenters where applicable.
Woodworm is a collective name given to a variety of wood-boring insects which if left to their own devices without treatment can cause considerable damage to the structural timbers within a property.
There are only two types of wood-boring beetles that are significant in the central area of England these are the common furniture beetle and the Death Watch beetle. Common furniture beetle is fairly widespread and tends to attack softwoods whilst Death Watch beetle is more common in hardwoods but they will normally be in damp situations.
If your property is suffering from woodworm, please call us today for professional advice on how to effectively treat the problem.
