Types of Damp
It’s well worth trying to understand common damp problems so that you have an idea of the sorts of problems that could be wrong with your home.
By educating yourself, you’ll understand why a contractor suggests extra work is needed and can spot if a contractor is charging for things they shouldn’t.
- Condensation damp occurs when moist air comes into contact with a colder surface (e.g walls, windows and mirrors). You’ll often find condensation becomes a problem during winter months. It can be identified via wet patches on walls, black mould, wallpaper peeling and streaming windows
- Penetrating damp is caused by rain penetrating into the house through an external wall. This is usually through to cracks in the masonry or broken roof tiles. It can be identified by damp patches on the floor, walls and ceilings.
- Rising damp is the result of water in the ground rising through the walls. You can often pinpoint rising damp by a ‘tide mark’ along the wall. Wet skirting boards and floorboards, crumbling plaster and peeling wallpaper at the bottom of the wall are other signs you’ll see that suggest rising damp may be a problem.
We have a more in-depth guide on the types of damp. It could you can identify the problem yourself and not need a damp specialist to look at your home.
However, if you’re unsure and want a professional to take a look, ensure you get a CSRT certified surveyor to visit your home to complete a free damp survey.
Damp Survey in Aberdeen
Damp surveys are very effective tools in order to understand your home.
If you’re in the market looking for a property, a damp survey may be required as dictated by the mortgage lenders. This is true, particularly for older buildings.
Since 2008 and the financial crisis, lenders aren’t willing to take as many risks. Damp surveys have almost become an associated cost of buying a home.
If you’re looking to sell your property, a full survey report overseen by an independent, qualified surveyor will be necessary.
Although many damp proofing companies offer free surveys, they won’t be considered valid by mortgage lenders if it is performed by a contractor who lacks the necessary certification.
If you have no plans to sell your home anytime soon, many companies will undertake a free damp survey to identify the exact problem. If a survey fee is involved, this will most likely be removed once the work is carried out.
We are upfront and honest about all our damp surveys and solutions for property owners in Aberdeen, City of Aberdeen. Get a damp survey taken on your home.
