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 Guildford
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 Guildford
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 Guildford
“Really pleased with service received and work carried out. Shaunas and Matthew were the contractors that attended, friendly, polite, seemed to work non-stop. Cleaned up well afterwards. Also, the gentleman that came out originally to give me a quote I’d like to thank for giving me peace of mind that my bathroom was safe to use. I was really worried about bathing my baby and he took plenty of time to explain to me what work needed to be done. Finally, the lady that dealt with me in the office was really helpful and kept coming back to me and leased with the contractors from tradable to get everything put in place. Behind the scenes sometimes gets forgotten about but it made a stressful time a little easier. Overall feels like you have a really solid professional team. Well done and thank you” – Helen Y., Guildford
