Waterproofing and Rising Damp Treatment - RTS Southern, Portsmouth, Hampshire

Dampness causes the most rapid and severe degradation of building materials and decorations. It causes unsightly spoiling of decorations, disfiguring mould growth and deterioration of plasterwork, but more importantly it is responsible for the most destructive mechanism of structural deterioration - DRY ROT (Serpula Lacrymans).

Water can positively enter a building from a variety of sources, many of which are the result of defects allowing rainwater penetration. These include obvious problems such as blocked rainwater goods, cracks in brickwork and external render, chimney flue defects and poorly fitting windows and doors. Sometimes the source of water ingress is not so obvious as in the case of porous masonry or mortar.

The most common entrance of water into older buildings is the result of rising dampness, staining and spoiling decorations to the lower areas of the wall and if left unchecked, can lead to decay of skirting and timber suspended floors.

Whatever the origin of the moisture, deterioration of one's most expensive asset, your property, can be expected and significant costs can be incurred if the problem is left unchecked.

In the case of rising damp, the comprehensive Antel range of chemical systems covers the full spectrum from injections mortars to chemical damp-proofing, thus providing a range of materials to cover any situation likely to be encountered.

As an important part of the treatment, there is a range of specialist additives for the render after insertion of a chemical damp-proof course.

Antel produces a range of integral waterproofers as part of full and detailed effective specifications relating to plastering in order to ensure that the new work is and remains effective.
