Types of Damp
It’s well worth the effort educating yourself on how to spot damp so that you have some idea of what could be wrong with your home. You’ll then hopefully be able to spot if a contractor is charging you for things they shouldn’t.
- Condensation damp is simply moisture that is caused by everyday living. Moisture is absorbed into the home when it is warm. When it cools, it condenses on cool surfaces. It can be identified via damaged plaster, black mould and moisture on windows. It is more prevalent during the autumn and winter months.
- 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 caused by water from the ground rising through the walls. It can usually be identified with a ‘tide mark’ along the wall. Common signs also include wet skirting boards and floorboards, crumbling plaster and peeling wallpaper towards the bottom of the wall.
Damp Survey in Batley
Damp surveys are a great way of understanding your property.
If you’re looking to buy a property, mortgage lenders will often tell you that they need a damp survey, particularly for older buildings. Since the financial crisis of 2008, mortgage lenders are far more risk-adverse and damp surveys have almost become an associated cost of buying a home.
If you plan on selling your home, you’ll need a full survey report conducted by an independent, qualified surveyor.
The damp survey report may be ignored by mortgage lenders if the report is performed by a contractor who lacks the necessary certification.
However, if you have no intention of selling your home soon, many contractors can offer free damp surveys. If they do charge, they will then usually remove the survey fee if the work is carried out.

Damp Proofing Costs in Batley
This is a common question many people have before reaching out to a damp proofing specialist. Unfortunately, it is difficult to quote an exact figure online before seeing the damp itself. This is because of how many variables could affect the cost.
Some of the factors that affect the pricing of damp proofing services include:
- The size of the damp
- Whether any plaster needs to be removed or replaced
- The type of treatment needed (e.g rising damp treatments are priced differently compared to damp proofing basements).

Damp Proofing Profs Reviews in Batley
“We contacted Damp Proofing Experts due to damp patch that had developed on an external wall. After initially speaking to one of their representatives, I received a call back from one of their Area Surveyors. From the onset I found him to be extremely helpful. I was extremely concerned about the issue. During our first conversation he was very reassuring, and advised he will do his best to assist. Due to a radiator being behind the exact area of damp, there was a concern that he may not be able to make a full assessment of the internal wall. He was open and honest advising this may cause a problem, but will do his best to assist. He arrived today to assess the issue. He inspected the external wall, and was also able to inspect the internal wall behind the damp patch, despite the radiator, continually explaining what he was doing and what each of the readings he was taking meant. Once again, he answered all of my questions openly and honestly. He explained the issue we were experiencing was nothing serious and something we should not be concerned about. He explained the reason why he felt the damp had appeared, and advised it was not necessary to proceed with a damp proofing course at this stage. He felt that the patch would dry naturally and advised us to just monitor the patch and to contact them again if we noticed that the patch was spreading. He could have quite easily recommended we proceed with a damp proofing course but he did not. His open honest, trustworthy and professional attitude was really admirable and to be honest really refreshing to see. I would not hesitate to recommend Damp Proofing Experts. He is a complete credit to the company, and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with him.” – Henrietta O., Batley
