What Factors Influence the Costs?
A number of different factors influence the cost of damp proofing. These include:
The Variety of Damp
The type of damp with which your property is effected impacts the solution to the problem. Rising damp needs to be treated in a separate way to penetrating damp as the moisture is being drawn into the wall from different sources. It’s important that a surveyor diagnoses the correct variety of damp before giving you a quote to ensure the damp proofing costs are as you expect.
The Age of your Property
The age of your property also influences the cost as older properties often suffer from more severe cases of damp. It can take longer, and use more resources, to solve the problem. However, if you have an older property, it’s even more important to tackle damp when you notice it. Damp can have a greater effect on older buildings than newer and cause bigger problems down the line.
The Extent of the Damp
You might not notice damp until it has been in the wall for a long period of time. If your property has an issue that makes it susceptible to damp, there is the risk that the moisture is already affecting walls, floors or ceilings before you see an obvious indicator like black spots or water marks. The less time the damp has been affecting your home, the smaller the problem and the less it costs to fix it.
How to Keep Damp Proofing Costs Down
To keep the costs down, it's important to address damp in your home or commercial property as soon as you notice it. Whichever variety of damp you've spotted, the longer you leave it, the more damage it will do to your home. The bigger the problem, the more it costs to get it sorted and make your home or property feel comfortable again.
