Rising Damp

In simple terms rising damp occurs when ground water travels upwards through porous building materials such as brick, sandstone, or mortar.

This dampness then extends to cause secondary dampness to a building resulting in problems such as paint flaking, wall stains, and the appearance of mould.

The video below provides an excellent explanation of rising damp, and demonstrates the best selling rising salt damp solution in the world, Dryzone.

Damp detection


We use the latest technologies in damp assessment and detection.

Damp meters can be used to detect the source of dampness. Without this device it is very difficult to determine where the damp is coming from.

Sub-Floor Ventilation

Musty odours and condensation on windows can appear in a building with inadequate ventilation.


Improved sub–floor ventilation allows clean, fresh air to circulate under your floor, helping to reduce musty odours inside the home.

Installation of new vents

Having adequate cross flow ventilation in your sub-floor helps prevent, cure or reduce timber decay, cupping of floor boards, and risk of termite attack. New vents also allow natural light into your sub-floor making it less desirable for termites and other nasties.

We use quality Aleta products and have a wide range of vents available to suit your style and budget.

Replacement of vents


A simple, inexpensive and effective means of keeping damp to a minimum at a sub–floor level is to upgrade the existing vents. We regularly replace old and cracking vents with new high quality brass wire mesh vents.

It doesn't matter how many terra cotta vents you install you will need to change them for the brass wire mesh vents eventually.
