The homeowner contacted our team to carry out a damp inspection for the walls surrounding the chimney breast of their property. They also requested a cost for carrying out the necessary repair work.
Damp survey findings:
Through use of Protimeter testing, it became clear that there were signs of rising damp within the walls to the left and right of the chimney breast alcove.
Work carried out:
We stripped away all areas of damp-affected plasterboard up to 1.2m down to the masonry.
To protect against future damp problems, we installed a DPC injection solution followed by a Safeguard damp proofing mesh membrane.
We then used a dot and dab method to fix the replacement plasterboard, followed by a skim finish for the following contractor to complete.
Following the work, all debris was removed and the client’s home was left tidy and ready for the redecoration process.
All of this work was completed under our 20-year Prokil Guarantee, which ensures that the client is covered for the foreseeable future.
