This is a stone built property with high ground level on the rear facing wall approximately 1.5 meters high. The high ground level was causing penetrating damp to enter the building and collect as visual dampness at the base of the wall.

A natural underground spring runs adjacent the rear wall but with the installation of our soakaway drainage system the water entering the building was redirected away easily.

Works completed: 

A Dry Lining System was installed incorporating a meshed membrane fixed direct to the wall insuring a physical barrier from any dampness in the wall itself ready for plaster boarding and re plaster work to be carried out. Surface mounted radiator pipes and mains water pipe were neatly concealed with boxings ready for new skirting boards to be fitted.
