Damp Proofing Specialists

Experts in the treatment of timber decay and infestation

Damp proofing

The identification and rectification of building defects and associated issues of dampness such as condensation, penetrating damp, rising damp, bridging, high external ground levels, plumbing leaks, leaking rainwater goods and driving rain.

Survey, reporting & diagnosis

We advise private and commercial clients through a process of inspection, following which a report is produced in which we diagnose and provide schedules of repair work where necessary.  We pride ourselves on the standard of report that we produce and the advice provided to our clients.

Residential damp proofing

Much of our damp proofing work involves dealing with issues in clients’ homes.  Our goal in this work is to provide a clean, prompt, and efficient service.  Value to residential clients is maximised through the quality of our work, professional correspondence and the longstanding nature of the business in successfully protecting client property for 46+ years.

Rising damp treatment

‘Rising damp’ is the movement of moisture up through building material as a result of capillary action, whereby the surface tension of water draws it through the pores present within building materials; much like blotting paper or indeed paper kitchen towel absorbs/wicks water through the same physical process.

Commercial damp proofing

We have vast experience serving on design teams and working as a specialist subcontractor, designing, managing and implementing larger scale projects.  Our designs and advice are backed by £2.5m professional indemnity insurance, we are Constructionline Silver and SafeContractor approved, and we do not compromise on specification.

Historic & listed building damp proofing

We have extensive knowledge of historic forms of construction and often work in hand with leading heritage Architects and Consultants to apply that which is appropriate for the structure, rather than inappropriate modern techniques.  To date we have worked on over 560 listed buildings, and have won awards for our work.

Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."

  • “Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
