Damp Proofing

Damp Proofing Solution in Great Yarmouth

A2Z offer a wide range of damp proofing solutions for the treatment of rising damp.

Rising damp can occur within buildings when the existing damp course has become defective. This results in moisture and salts from the ground rising through the brickwork and mortar joints. This process is known as capillary action. Salt laiden moisture then migrates to the plaster surfaces causing saturation and damage.

It is important at inspection stage that all possible causes of moisture ingress which may be causing or adding to the internal dampness are investigated . A2Z will carry out a full on-site evaluation of these possible causes and give specifications and recommendations for all necessary repairs.

Defects causing, or adding to, internal dampness often include; high external ground levels, render finishes continuing to the ground allowing "bridging", leaking gutters and downpipes, defective external coatings, drainage and plumbing defects.

As an environmentally friendly company, we try to avoid using toxic substances and instead, use the membrane system.

Cavity drain membranes

Membranes services

Cavity drain membranes provide an alternative to conventional cementitious tanking systems, which work by holding the water back. Cavity drain membranes work on the principle of allowing water to continue to penetrate the structure but control it in the air gap and divert it to a suitable drainage point.

They do not allow pressure to build up against the internal construction and the air gap behind the membrane allows the structure to breathe and to some extent to dry out.

The membranes are lose laid on floors and fixed to walls using special plugs and sealing materials, with little or no preparation required to the substrate. Once the membrane has been fitted, wall surfaces can be dry lined or plastered directly and floors can be screeded or a floating dry board system installed.
