Damp & Insulation

Keeping your property well insulated is very important, but if your insulation itself gets damp, then it can’t do its job properly.

Ensuring that the insulation within your house remains dry also means that it will remain effective. Preventing damp intrusion into your property will help with the longevity of your insulation, as well as ensuring full effectiveness. The intention of insulation is to stop the transfer of heat from within the home escaping, as well as ensuring that the cold air outside doesn’t reduce temperatures within.

When this gets damp, it allows for temperatures to drop easier within the home. This effectively renders insulation all but useless, making your investment and effort redundant.

When the exterior of your property is exposed to rain, it can penetrate the brickwork. This isn’t just through obvious gaps, as the structure of bricks allows for a certain amount of moisture to pass through, but too much causes problems. When this moisture gets through to insulation, it causes bigger issues than if there were none at all.

Rather than going through the long, laborious and expensive task of replacing your insulation, treating the initial problem of moisture absorption is much easier. Treating your property with our damp proofing products is the simplest way to stop moisture levels increasing. With various treatments available, different products may be required, so getting in touch with an experienced contractor is the best way forward.

Our damp proofing products have the added benefit of stopping lower levels of moisture, helping with a range of minor problems, as well as solving the bigger ones. This can help increase the efficiency of your insulation, saving even more money in the long run through increased efficiency and reduced maintenance costs in the future.

While everyone is trying to save money, and increase efficiency to help the environment, it is important to make sure that your insulation does its job. The range of damp proofing products available from us covers a variety of problems, and can easily help you get the most out of your insulation.
