Damp Proofing in Sheffield

Rising damp is the most common damp problem in Sheffield. This is caused by a defective or absent damp proof course. As a result, moisture from the ground rises through a property's walls or floors.

Common Causes of Damp

Rising damp

This occurs when moisture from the ground rises through the walls or floors of a property. This is typically caused by a defective or absent damp proof course.

Penetrating damp

This happens when water from the outside penetrates the structure of a property. Penetrating damp is often caused by problems with the roof, windows or walls.


This is caused by excess moisture in the air, which often results from cooking, drying clothes indoors or insufficient ventilation.

Types of Damp Proofing

Our team installs a damp proof course or membrane, depending on the extent of the issue. While the different types of dampness can often show the same signs, each requires a unique approach and equipment.

In a damp proof course, a physical barrier is set up to prevent moisture from moving through the walls of a building. Another common approach is to treat the building with a waterproofing agent, which helps to repel water and prevent it from seeping into the structure.
