Challenges Faced:

Upon initial inspection, the Advanced Damp team identified several challenges that needed to be addressed:

a) Waterproofing: The garage suffered from water penetration issues, leading to damp and subsequent deterioration of the building’s structure. These issues need to be resolved to prevent further damage.

b) Damp Proofing: Rising damp and condensation were prevalent throughout the garage. The presence of damp not only caused unsightly stains and unpleasant odours but also posed potential health risks to occupants.

c) Rendering: The existing render on the exterior walls had deteriorated over time, requiring repair and replacement. The garage management desired a fresh, modern appearance to enhance the overall appeal of the facility.

Solution and Implementation:

To effectively tackle the client’s challenges, Advanced Damp devised a comprehensive solution that involved the following steps:

a) Waterproofing: The first step was to identify the sources of water ingress. Advanced Damp’s team of experienced technicians meticulously assessed the garage’s exterior walls, identifying vulnerable areas prone to leaks. The team then implemented a combination of waterproofing techniques, including the application of high-quality waterproofing membranes and sealants, to create a barrier against water infiltration.

b) Damp Proofing: To address rising damp and condensation issues, Advanced Damp employed a multi-pronged approach. The team installed an effective damp-proof course (DPC) to prevent moisture from rising through the walls. Additionally, they introduced adequate ventilation solutions, such as air bricks and extractor fans, to promote air circulation and reduce condensation levels.

c) Rendering: With the aim of revitalizing the garage’s appearance, Advanced Damp proposed a complete rendering overhaul. The existing damaged render was carefully removed, and the underlying surfaces were prepared by cleaning and repairing any structural defects. Advanced Damp’s skilled craftsmen then applied a high-quality render, using colour and texture chosen in consultation with the client, to provide a modern and durable finish.
