Description

We pride ourselves on living the promise of the IOPSA logo that stands for “Uplifting Standards”.

As proud members we attend regular IOPSA meetings where topics such as water saving, new products and above all plumbing standards are discussed and studied.

RISING DAMP

This is a condition where ground water is drawn upwards through direct contact with bricks and mortar. Water rises by capillary action where inadequate or damaged damp proof courses are present in the walls of the home.

LATERAL (PENETRATING) DAMP

Lateral damp penetration is a cause of penetrating damp. This occurs when the external ground level is higher than the building so moisture is able to penetrate the walls. Penetrating damp is usually classed as any kind of water that makes it’s way in from the outside and can also be caused by missing roof tiles, overflowing gutters, leaking pipes and other structural problems with the building.

DESCENDING DAMP

This can be associated with broken, missing or slipped tiles, leaking parapets, leaking showers, leaking balconies or poorly waterproofed windowsills or tops of walls. Descending damp usually appears as bubbling paint or damp stains to ceilings and walls. Leaking geysers or leaking water supply pipes may cause similar problems. Descending damp also causes secondary damage to buildings in that the unwanted moisture enables the growth of various fungi in organic materials causing rot or mould health issues and may eventually lead to sick building syndrome.
