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 Glenrothes
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 Glenrothes
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 Glenrothes
“I called Damp Proofing Experts purely on the basis of the excellent reviews. The young lady who answered my call, who I now know was Samantha Hemel, was extremely professional, her telephone manner was impeccable, and she was very knowledgeable in answering all my questions and concerns and she was the sole reason why I then decided to go ahead and book an appointment. I think first impressions always count. The surveyor by the name of Fred arrived on time, spent quite a while surveying my property for damp, and I also found him to be very nice, approachable, professional and knowledgeable. As he left, I called him as I had forgotten to ask him a question which required him to view the problem and it was no trouble for him to come back and he did half an hour later. Fred has given me three options in his quote which he emailed the next day and I now have to decide which one is the most affordable. I do think, however, the quote for each option is a fair price and I don’t think this company is out there to fleece you. I also think they will do a good job when I eventually go ahead with it.” – Isabella H., Glenrothes
