Roof or Wall Damp Problems?

Feature Image

Signs of damp include clearly visible marks along with deposits, bubbling or flaking paint and peeling plaster. Damp can be caused either by water penetration or seepage, rising damp or lateral penetrating damp. Lateral penetrating damp is a very specific problem experienced in the lower floors of homes, buildings and factories and is easily misdiagnosed.

Feature Image

We know that lateral penetrating damp is particularly common in homes with a cellar or basement since this type of damp appears when the ground level is higher than the damp proof course. This means that water damage is getting into the walls below the current level of protection. Protecting against this is imperative, especially if you’re looking to convert your cellar or basement into a reusable room.

The above mentioned problems can arise when no waterproofing has been done at all or past waterproofing has perished, as well as when there is no damp course or infiltration through flat wall surfaces (like boundary or pool wall).

We can remedy all damp problems

Each case requires thorough torch on work, even down to the foundation if required. This is done in combination with concrete work and water channelling systems. All our waterproofing work to fix damp can be plastered and tiled. In some cases, walls may need to have the plaster work repaired. Upon completion of such repair, we prime and paint the walls to finish the work.

Our Services

Concrete Roofs, Roof Parapets, Balconies, Decks (Any Form of Landings), Drains and Skylights

Waterproofing is done using 4mm tar rolls, imported from Italy. All torch on waterproofing is executed through the heat fusion method. This involves overlap work, binding and rebinding, and is completed with tar roll paste for extra strength. UV-protected reflective silver bituminous aluminium paint is then used which acts as a bounce-back from the sun's harsh UV rays. Our teams are highly skilled and experienced wto also plaster, tile/pave, prime and paint if needed.

Building Repairs and Tiling

This work concentrates on exteriors only - this includes new plaster work; screedings of walls and floors (ground), normal tiling, such as around pools and tiling on top of the waterproofing work and on top of boundary walls as a form of extra protection (this is also more visually appealing). We pride ourselves in being the only company in Cape Town that can clad exterior walls in an Italian style.

Foundations, Retaining Walls, Water Channeling and Planter Boxes (Irrespective of Size or Shape)

We are able to build foundations, retaining walls, water channeling and planter boxes (irrespective of size and shape), and do the torch on waterproofing work in order to safeguard against rising damp and or structural damage. If required, our building/tiling team is skilled in finishing the surface of the torch on to beautify the areas worked on. In addition to a visually appealing finish, this also provides extra protection against the harsh elements.

Box Gutters and Chimneys

We re-line leaking box gutters in order to avoid the expensive cost of replacement, as long as they are not rusted. We waterproof chimneys underneath and on top of tiles (or soakers) and in certain cases we will complete waterproof binding on top of the tiles so that it works as a soaker. Both of these methods are done with torch on tar rolls by using the heat fusion method.
