Rising Damp

Rising damp in buildings occurs when water from the ground rises up through the fabric of a building by a process loosely termed as "capillary action." In simple terms, the water rises up the wall of a building in the same way that water soaks up in a sponge.

Treatment: We offer a 30 Year Protection Guarantee on all our rising damp treatments.


Wall tanking is an effective way of damp proofing areas prone to dampness i.e. Basements, Cellars, Walls below ground and also areas where dampness is problematic. Tanking is a popular way to convert extra living space from cellars and basements.

Treatment: We offer a 10 year Guarantee on all our tanking treatments.


Condensation is moisture caused by everyday living. Moisture is absorbed into the warm atmosphere of your home and when the house cools down the moisture condenses on cool surfaces. The result is condensation, an extremely underestimated cause of mould and dampness in our homes, it is almost certainly the most common form of dampness within a building.

Treatment: There are solutions to the problem of condensation, we carry out condensation surveys to investigate the problem areas and make recommendations to cure the problem.

Damp and Timber Reports

Adapt building services also carry out damp and timber reports often requested as part of the home buying process.

Mortgage lenders / building surveyors often ask for a damp and timber report so that they can be satisfied that the structure of the building is free from excessive moisture and timber decay that can attack the walls and timber within the building.

If you are in need of this service please feel free to contact us.
