If you suspect that your property has damp, it is imperative that you call Prokil as soon as possible due to the detrimental effects of damp. Our surveyors will visit your property to conduct a thorough investigation. Afterwards, we will provide you with a detailed report of our findings and recommendations, in which we will suggest a damp proofing Reading treatment tailored to your property’s needs.
At Prokil, we have the facilities and experience to treat the following types of damp:
Rising damp can be identified by white marks, tide mark on walls and visible discolouration which is due to mineral salts being transported from the ground. Water from the ground travels through the property’s masonry (typically through porous mortar joints) and has the capability to travel a metre up walls. The leading causes of rising damp can be traced back to a damaged, bridged or missing DPC.
Penetrating damp causes many issues like mould, damaged plaster, musty smells, watermarks and damaged timber to name a few. This type of damp is often caused by water leaking through the walls which is due to building defects or structural issues. Penetrating damp has the ability to move around buildings from above or in a lateral fashion.
We also treat damp problems caused by ventilation and condensation issues.

"My company recently relocated to a larger building due to expansion. However, after a short time we suspected we might have a damp problem due to a musty damp smell. We contacted Prokil who attended our offices the next day and confirmed our worst fears. Prokil provided us with a competitive quote which we were happy to accept and the works were carried out within the week. I would recommend Prokil any time. Many thanks,"
"We have been extremely impressed with the team who carried out the work. They were punctual and arrived in good time for us to get to work, and explained what they were doing at each stage. We felt happy to leave them with the key to lock up if they left before we got home. They were meticulously clean and tidy, even to the point of rinsing their coffee cups at the end of the day! Please pass on our thanks to them all. We have had very prompt and professional service from you all at Prokil, and will be happy to recommend your company to others. Best wishes"
