Frequently Asked Questions

Damp proofing is a protective measure used in buildings to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces. This could involve a variety of methods such as applying a waterproof membrane or coating to walls, floors or foundations, or the installation of a damp-proof course in a wall. It’s an essential step in ensuring the structural integrity of a building and protecting it from dampness-related damage.

There are a few tell-tale signs that your property may need damp proofing. These include the appearance of damp patches on walls or ceilings, the presence of a musty smell, mould growth, peeling paint or wallpaper, and wood rot. If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to contact a damp proofing specialist like Dry Guard Damp Proofing to assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.

Dry Guard Damp Proofing is proud to serve many cities and towns in the North East of England. Our service areas include but are not limited to Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Middlesbrough, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Darlington, Redcar, South Shields, Stockton-on-Tees, and many more. If you’re unsure whether we cover your location, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The duration for a damp proofing job can vary greatly depending on the extent of the damp problem, the size of the property, and the type of treatment required. Generally, a standard damp proofing treatment for a regular-sized house might take a few days to a week. However, more complex jobs or larger properties may require more time. At Dry Guard Damp Proofing, we work efficiently while ensuring high-quality results, and we’ll give you a realistic time estimate before commencing any work.

Absolutely! While the initial cost of damp proofing can vary based on the size and condition of the property, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment. If left untreated, damp can lead to serious structural damage, not to mention potential health issues due to mould and mildew. The cost of repairing such damage can be much greater than the cost of preventative damp proofing. Plus, damp proofing can increase the value of your property and make it more appealing to potential buyers or tenants.
