Remedial Work

by Geoff Flavell in Damp Proofing Blogs

Specialist Remedial Work on Victorian Building

We recently completed a remedial project on a Victorian property, focusing on a rear room affected by damp issues. The problem originated from elevated external ground levels along the rear wall bridging the slate damp proof course (DPC) and salt-contaminated chimney breast, which are common in period constructions but can cause significant damage if not addressed properly.


Our plasterer used specialised techniques to the affected areas. Our team used high-quality materials and methods designed to prevent the dampness effectively and ensure it won’t pose a problem in the future. This approach not only secures the integrity of the building but also preserves its historical value.


Understanding that properties of this age and style require careful handling, we specifically focus on preventing moisture penetration in areas prone to exposure, such as chimney breasts. These are often overlooked spots that, if neglected, can lead to more severe issues like timber decay. If you notice signs of dampness or decay in your property, especially around chimney breasts don’t hesitate to contact us.


We understand the importance of a warm, safe, and efficient home, and we’re dedicated to making that a reality for as many people as possible through this scheme.
