Damp Proofing Solutions: Paint Repair

Are you worried from a rising damp situation at your property? Do you come across damp patches and mould all over your property, on a regular basis? If yes, then don’t worry, you are not alone. Rising damp is among the most common property-related problems faced by homeowners all over the UK. Just like you, homeowners tend to prefer a reliable and long-lasting solution to their rising damp problems. A proven, effective, and affordable solution to damp-related problems is damp paint. The paint is very easy to apply to all types of interior walls and the maintenance is also a breeze. While the process itself is essentially hassle-free, the solution works quite well for an extended period of time.

So, What Exactly Is Damp Proofing Paint?

Damp-proof paint is a non-toxic solution that will protect your walls from the damp penetrating inside your home. Once applied, this solvent-free product becomes a barrier between the moisture and your home’s interior. The paint is applied like a regular, emulsion paint and comes in two colours, white and black. If your property is damaged by a rising damp condition, you can achieve peace of mind after just a single application of this highly effective damp proofing paint. The paint will also protect your property against black mould while giving your property a flawless, damp-free look.

Damp On the Inner And Outer Surface Walls

Most of the rising damp cases are first observed on the interior walls of a house. It is fairly easy to identify a case of rising damp from the tide marks left by the moisture, on the walls. In most cases, these marks appear near the centre of the wall. In some extreme cases, the water may also travel towards the upper area of the wall.

Rising damp is known to affect both the internal and external property walls. Crumbling pointing material and salt deposits on the walls are some of the surefire ways of locating a rising damp problem.

  • Rising / Penetrating Damp

Damp Proof Your Walls with a High-Quality Damp Proofing Paint

One of the best damp proofing practices involves coating the wall with damp proofing paint and then applying a plaster cover over it. This helps keep the moisture away from the inner surface of your wall. If you suspect that your property may have a rising damp problem, then it is recommended to get your property surveyed by professional experts.
