Damp Proofing: Why Summer Is the Best Time to Damp Proof Your Home

Most renovation and repair projects are carried out during the warmer months as the weather permits work to progress swiftly. While summer is rainy season in Gauteng and most of South Africa, there are more than enough sunny days to allow projects like damp proofing.

If you’ve noticed signs of damp in your home – mould growth, moist walls, damp spots or unexplained leaks, we advise you to get in touch with a damp proofing specialist right away, no matter the season. If you want to be proactive and protect your home against future water damage and damp, summer might be the best time to do so.

Hydrostop SA Can Help with Your Damp Problem

Do you have issues with condensation? Condensation isn’t just an annoyance. When left untreated it can damage the furniture, decorations and even the structure of your home.

Do you suspect rising damp? Rising damp usually occurs when moisture travels upwards and enters your home through permeable building materials. Have you noticed signs of penetrating damp? Penetrating damp typically occurs through roofs, walls and windows. Water enters the outer covering of a building and moves inside.

At Hydrostop SA, our experts understand damp and can assess which treatment course to take. Whatever the problem we offer a free survey, professional advice from one of our experienced surveyors and an honest analysis and solution to your damp problem.
