Damp Proofing Services & Advice

Understanding moisture is key

At some point in your life as a property owner or tenant, you will most likely experience the dreaded issue of moisture in your home. It can sometimes be a bit of a mystery as to where it has come from, and it’s not always due to a plumbing concern!

Understanding moisture in the building envelope is crucial. Therefore, calling in the correct professional is paramount to correctly assess and recognise the cause of damp in buildings and identify the necessary required repairs. This expertise is key to preparing the required specifications of recommendations and schedules.

If you’ve got moisture in your home, you need to act on it straight away. Don’t let a seemingly small matter turn into a large, problematic, expensive problem. Our damp proofing surveys have been designed just for this and include a thorough assessment, clear explanation, detailed report, remedial specification and costings.

Moisture and where it starts

We live in a country with unpredictable and changing weather patterns, so it is no surprise that so many of our properties experience damp problems, which lead to expensive repairs. We have learnt to take wet weather for granted. So, while we can throw on a coat or put up an umbrella when the rain comes down, our homes cannot do that and are exposed to the elements.

Moisture in brickwork is the worst possible ingredient to have in your property, and every effort should be made to prevent the ingress of moisture. Moisture in brickwork is responsible for damp, mould, condensation, health issues, dry and wet rot and even severe energy losses.

There are different types of damp, moisture and condensation issues that may be affecting your property. It is of paramount importance to get to the root of the problem and not just throw on a lick of paint to hide the ugly damp patch growing more extensive in the corner. Understanding moisture in the building fabric is a vast subject and key to the correct diagnosis. It is so imperative to understand how occupancy, ventilation, insulation, heating, materials and maintenance can all contribute to the moisture issue.

Replaced Garage

Robert and the team replaced my old garage (with an asbestos roof) with a very nice larger garage. Everything was done when they said it would be. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely use Tiffin again.

Robert Tiffin successfully diagnosed and treated the increasing damp in the cellar of our old house, something several previous firms had failed to do. He was professional and efficient and provided an excellent report.

The “Tiffin difference” was immediately noticeable. We were left with a strong sense that Robert and the team were professional and reliable in their approach. We will be using Tiffin for our next project.

Robert Tiffin is helpful and professional. His advice is sound and he will save you money where he can. Not surprisingly, the people he employs are also hard working and professional. Schedules are maintained and when work is completed everywhere is left clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
