The customer wanted us to explain what the bubbling and flaking of the plaster was on the ground floor walls of their property, which was (Rising damp) caused by an existing failed damp proof course, and to carry out the treatment to stop this from happening again.
How we went about undertaking the job
We carried out rising damp treatment to the ground floor walls, this includes removing the damaged plaster, injecting a chemical damp proof course, installing a damp proof membrane, re-plastering and installing new skirting boards. This comes with are 10 year guarantee.
The only problem we occurred on this job is that someone had previously tried carry out rising damp treatment to these walls that wasn’t qualified to do so, this resulted in having to not only remove the damaged plaster but remove the product from the bricks they had used that failed.
The end results
The end result was the ground floor walls to the property were freshly plastered and ready for decoration, and guaranteed to be free from damp.
What the customer said
“Lee was brilliant to deal with from start to finish.
I needed a quick tanking job on a property due to a new tenancy starting very soon. He was quick to quote, a very fair price and arranged for the work to be done immediately. Very professional and excellent value.
Will definitely use again should the need arise”
