Rising damp is one of the most obvious and unpleasant “features” of a home and can significantly devalue properties.
As dampness ‘travels’, the source of the problem often isn’t where it appears on the wall. We use a tool called a “moisture-meter” to assist us in isolating the source of the problem. This ensures that we locate the walls affected by water ingress and that we know our remedy will in fact solve the problem.
There are different remedies available depending on what is required to solve the rising damp issue. Perth buildings have different types of brick walls and therefore require differing solutions.
